A Few Days in Charlottesville

During our trip to Charlottesville, VA, we took in a few of the sites (as seen earlier in this blog). This entry covers our hotel (which was beautiful), one image from the town mall, and a string of images from the Michie Tavern and Meadow Run Mill & General Store complex. It was a very cloudy day, but I think it aided in some of the atmosphere of these locales.

First up: Michie Tavern and Meadow Run Mill & General Store:

The whole complex under the shelter of the trees.

They have an armory.

The porch of the armory.

It’s very scenic and I like the wooden siding and stone chimneys.

Michie Tavern had a long line, so we skipped it.

A view of the cemetery across the street.

A nice stone wall below the armory.

A lot of stone walls cover the complex.

The wood shed.

Making it more wistful.

The woodshed with a creek in front of it.

The bathroom is slightly hidden.

A scenic old well.

Here is the only shot of the mall I enjoyed:

There is a carousel in the middle of the mall.

Keswick Hall:

The front entrance.

Some lovely gardens and seating areas.

They have a vineyard.

Wine barrels to show off the vineyard entrance.

The drive approach.

Walking over to the spa.

I love overgrown trellises.

The pool (it was quite warm for swimming).

The hotel and the pool.

Overlooking the golf course.

The other pool (connected to the spa).

The fountain by the front entrance.

Next time: Easton, PA.
