Saturday November 17 and Sunday November 18
Join me at Potomac Appalachian Trail Club's Dunlodge cabin, 100 miles from the beltway for 2 days hiking or whatever. Dunlodge is a beautiful, fully-furnished house located in the heart of Charlottesville, Virginia, directly adjacent to the University of Virginia. The football stadium and John Paul Jones Arena are both within walking distance and Dunlodge is convenient to the area’s wineries, breweries and many historical sites. Located on a secluded 5-acre wooded property, the house is a unique showplace of log siding, sloped roofs, step down rooms, rose bud flooring, indoor fireplaces, wood beam ceilings, a large sunroom and a formal dining room. Dunlodge is completely modernized with full kitchen appliances, central heating and air conditioning. Outdoors the landscaped gardens feature a large outdoor slate patio with a rock fireplace, a horse barn and American Trails tying into the UVA Observatory Hill trail system and to the Rivanna Greenbelt Trail that circles the entire city of Charlottesville.
