This 3 letter word is the most common word these days. Everywhere you go people are talking about the heat and storms. It’s only the start of summer!
Even though the sun is beating on the outside, our guests are staying cool in their air-conditioned cottages. And we now appreciate the “power” after experiencing a 2 day outage due to last Friday’s storm. Several guests braved the storm and stayed in the cottages despite the loss of electricity. The lack of electricity at night made it even more romantic! Ray made sure everyone was safe and had morning coffee delivered to their door. Steeles Tavern Manor B&B got electric back earlier in the day on Sunday but the cottages didn’t receive their power until late Sunday night. So we welcomed our cottage guests to stay in the B&B Sunday and enjoy a hot breakfast in the morning. Our first B&B guests!
Yesterday, we decided to check out the mountain scene to enjoy a day in the shade. We took a ride through Goshen Pass. Willard Scott called Goshen Pass the most dramatic rock and river scenery east of the Mississippi. It was our first time to visit Goshen Pass and it took our breathe away. The mountain views were gorgeous. The Maury River that runs through the mountains which creates the “pass” is breathtaking. It was so relaxing to sit and watch as the water rushed over the large rocks in the river. People were swimming, fishing, hiking, and picnicking. Goshen Pass is on Rt 39 about 20 miles northwest of Lexington.
When you are visiting us please take a ride through Goshen Pass. Bring a picnic lunch and stop at Matthew Maury memorial park to relax and eat by the river or stop at Just Kay’s restaurant on Rt 39 in Rockbridge Baths for lunch.
