Many guests find they don’t want to stray far from our spa, swimming pool, yoga room and tennis courts—and the get-away-from-it-all tranquility of the property. They lounge in the hammock with a book, explore the trails throughout our 200 acres on foot or by bicycle and fish for bass in our ponds. For fun, they pick up a frisbee, volleyball, bocce ball or croquet mallet.
For those who want something more ambitious, Poplar Inn carries the unusually rich benefit of location: It sits amid two of Virginia’s most distinctive traditions, horses and vineyards. That opens the door to a bounty of related activities, including horseback riding, steeplechase races, polo and wine tours. At the same time, Northern Virginia’s rolling countryside, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, anchors a rich roster of other things to do, from golf and biking to Civil War tours and shopping for antiques.
