Friday Photos: Autumn Splendor at Keswick Hall in Virginia

September 16, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Keswick Hall

One of the best places for autumn leaf-peeping in the U.S. is-- without a doubt-- Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Just minutes from Thomas Jefferson's historic Monticello estate near Charlottesville, Keswick Hall overlooks some of the prettiest scenery on the East Coast. Come fall, the mountains are painted in firey reds and ochre yellows, and the hotel's 600-acre estate bursts into color. There are recreational activities galore-- from horseback riding to jogging the nature trails. And fall also means grape stomping in the vineyards! The resort invites guests to crush local grapes to make the hotel's Chardonnay and Petit Verdot wines. Enjoy farm-fresh meals and local wine tastings while soaking up the autumn splendor at Keswick Hall.
