One of Virginia’s top destinations since 1912, Keswick Hall has now been reimagined as a restful, contemporary resort.
Virginia’s beautiful countryside is an eye-pleasing tapestry of rolling hills and forested dales. This is the valley deep, mountain high setting for Keswick Hall – a turn-of-the-century estate that is now home to fully transformed guest rooms and suites, common spaces, a signature free-standing restaurant, an infinity pool with cabanas, several red clay tennis courts and reimagined resort grounds.
Owners Molly and Robert Hardie tapped the architecture firm Hart Howerton to bring the new space to life with landscape architects Nelson Byrd Woltz. Culinary icon Jean-Georges Vongerichten is at the helm of the new Marigold restaurant, which serves seasonal dishes using organic and sustainable ingredients.
Alternatively, guests can head to The Counter for light snacks or enjoy cocktails and small plates at Crawford’s. Seasoned golfers and novices alike will be impressed by the 18-hole Full Cry golf course by Pete Dye, which consistently garners top ranking as one of the best courses to play.
The guest rooms at Keswick Hall are decorated in shades of whites, blues, and creams, featuring light wood, elegant furniture and classic upholstery, luxurious beds with Duxiana mattresses and Frette sheets. Works by local artists adorn the walls throughout the property to connect guests to the region.
Expected to open in 2022, Keswick Hall's new spa will feature eight sumptuous treatment rooms and offer services that incorporate organic red flower products, including the signature Dawn Meadow scent of Keswick Hall.
