“A superb place to stay, with friendly hosts and lovely surroundings!”

A superb place to stay, with no negatives at all! The lodge is well equipped both in the kitchen (loads of pots, pans, utensils, and dry goods) and elsewhere (e.g. loads of books, board games, card decks ping pong, foosball and balls & bats outside). Upon arrival the lodge was very clean and well presented. We were greeted with presents for the kids (and one for the grown-ups!) and a cake freshly baked by Joan. Farm eggs from nearby were also waiting for us (we had requested these earlier).

We stayed at Rockcliffe Lodge as a group of 5 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs (though the house could sleep much more), and had a fantastic experience. Although the lodge is listed as having 4 bedrooms, don't let that put you off having large groups of people there. There is *loads* of extra space to sleep, and lots of different ways to arrange things. Futons in the sun room and in the den, and pull-out beds in many locations. Futons as well as comfy beds in 2of the 3 bedrooms. The hosts and the lodge are very child-friendly; Joan set up air mattress in the den so the two boys could share a room. There are very comfy beds, nice bedding and loads of towels.

There were lots of nice little touches throughout the house, such as spare toiletries, old towels for drying dogs and yourselves after walks in the woods, gas fireplaces, insect repellent, flashlights and more. The Lodge itself is in a great setting in the middle of woods owned by the people who run the Lodge itself (Joan and Hugh). Joan and Hugh live just down the road, and are always on hand to help you out and get you acquainted with the trails and the James River nearby. They are friendly and helpful but not obtrusive.

There are a number of nice, well marked walking woods trails starting at the house which the whole group (including little ones and dogs) walked on a number of times. We saw lots of wildlife, including a couple of (harmless) snakes. Hugh took us on a guided walk at the beginning of our stay to help us find our way around. He had lots of things to say about the area and the flora and fauna around the trail, and did a good job keeping the boys entertained. You should definitely take sturdy shoes / boots and outdoor clothing for walking in the woods. Joan and Hugh's farm pickup truck was loaned to us any time we needed it so that we could get all of the party (especially the small children) to the river easily. Once the day is over you can still enjoy the woods by having a fire and making s'mores in the firepit (which Hugh lay for us on the first night), or cook outside with the barbecue.

Highlights were walking the trails in the woods with the dogs, having picnics down by the James River and sitting out around the fire pit both before and after the kids were in bed.
