pool and spa at the Inn at Whitewing Farm

1. Take a Dip in the Pool

There’s nothing like a refreshing dip in our custom built Spring-fed pool and spa! Rumor has it that our spring, dating back to the late 1700’s was a meeting area for people to gather to collect our special water. The level of sulfur was said to have been good for soaking and an early level of hydrotherapy. But, back to our pool… with little to no shade, the sunbathers flock to the pool deck to catch some rays and enjoy the tranquil environment. A table with an umbrella & chairs look over the pond and a sweet sitting area provides a relaxing place to gather and relax for those who prefer to stay covered.

2. Try Catch & Release Fishing

There is something genuine and simple about grabbing your rod and heading out to the pond to catch some fish. Henry David Thoreau once said: “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it’s not about the fish they are after.” Shut off your phone, enjoy the outdoors and escape reality for a few hours!

3. Play Tennis

Our Har-Tru tennis court is great for your body and even better for your game. The natural green stone found in Virginia provides a more flexible, shock-absorbing surface, which eases the stress on your feet, back and legs during play! Our court is available for day or night play. Just let us know and we will turn the lights on for you.
