Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of western Virginia, minutes from The Homestead Resort and the quaint village of Warm Springs, Meadow Lane sits on 1400 acres with exclusive Jackson River access offering every level of fun and challenge for the beginner to expert fly fisherman.
Two and a half private miles of the highly-acclaimed Jackson River, stocked with hard fighting rainbow trout, wind through the heart of the estate awaiting fishing guests. The farm is honeycombed with over twelve miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, guiding you through shady forests to breathtaking vistas, past blackberry patches and through wildflower-filled meadows. Meadow Lane offers a number of outdoor activities from swimming in the pool or river, to playing tennis, croquet, or taking a quiet moment on “The Deck” which overlooks The Slough Wildlife Sanctuary, a beautiful valley that serves as a home for birds, eagles, deer and the occasional bear.
Meadow Land Lodge historically served as a summer home for the Hirsh family who purchased Meadow Lane as their estate in 1924. The Lodge sits atop a hill, overlooking the meadow, hugged by the nearby mountain ranges.
The main floor of the Lodge welcomes you with a spacious dining room and fireplace. Just around the corner is the lounge, a comfortable room for socializing or enjoying the cozy warmth of the wood-burning stove. Guests can enjoy the continental breakfast in the butler’s kitchen each morning of their stay, made with locally sourced foods.
Swiggle suite is a small cottage, located just beside the main Lodge and completes the five Lodge suites. With a small refrigerator, DirecTV and gas log fireplace, Swiggle allows for relaxing solitude as well as the social scene of the main Lodge. A king bed and private bath complete Swiggle along with a large deck to enjoy the fresh mountain air and George Washington National Forest.
Swiggle has access to the pool, tennis court and barnyard which is a favorite of families with small children, and to the private stretch of the Jackson River, which is renowned for providing some of the best fly fishing on the east coast.
