Shrine Mont

Our cabin is about 5 minutes from Shrine Mont, a conference center for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.

Shrine Mont opens in early spring and remains open through the second Sunday in November and houses lots of church retreats, as well as other events.

Shrine Mont is a wonderful place.

We look forward to our church retreat there each summer. However, we are also thrilled that we can enjoy Chestnut Oak Lodge's kitchen and air conditioning even as we enjoy what Shrine Mont offers!

The Water is Fine!

Our family loves to swim and fish in Lake Laura.  Bryce Resort offers boats for rental and provides a swimming beach down by the dam, complete with rafts and a sandy beach area for kids.  You can walk to the Resort's beach area following the path by the lake from the cabin (turn to your right once you reach the path), or you can drive to the parking area. 

We've provided a variety of water floats & toys for you.  Have fun!
