Bath County was considered the frontier in the early days of Virginia, and its mountainous terrain and rural character still give the area the feeling of being wonderfully removed from the hectic pace of everyday life. Don’t let the lack of traffic lights in Bath County (there are none) fool you though, there is no shortage of attractions and things to do. It’s estimated that nearly three quarters of the county is comprised of protected, public lands and the area has a well-deserved reputation as a destination playground for outdoorsmen. The rugged Allegheny Mountains serve as the area’s backdrop and provide endless hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking, while the surrounding rivers and streams have gained acclaim in recent years as some of the best fly fishing in Virginia. The cold, clear waters of the Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers, and their numerous tributaries, hold excellent populations of Rainbow, Brown, and native Brook trout.

 

35 minutes southwest of Cloverdale is the renowned Homestead Resort and the charming town of Hot Springs. The Homestead traces its roots to 1766, and the modern resort dates from 1888. Today the resort features two championship golf courses, a ski slope, skeet range and sporting clays, and many other amenities. For those looking to relax there is the Homestead Spa, as well as a number of great restaurants and shops in Hot Springs. The reliably agreeable summer weather, unrivaled scenery, access to public lands, and year-round activities make Bath County a perpetually popular destination for people throughout the Commonwealth and Mid-Atlantic.
