In keeping with the grandest and most authentic estates, the public rooms at Keswick Hall are inviting and filled with period-inspired furnishings and art that tell the story of the original home, Villa Crawford circa 1912. Roaring fireplaces create a welcoming environment for a game of snooker, an evening cocktail, or an afternoon of reading from the Inn's library of books written by Virginians or about Virginia. The Great Hall is the main lobby of the resort with the two wings of the inn branching to either side. Guests may relax by the fire, plan their day with the Concierge, or gather with friends and family before dining in Fossett's Restaurant or venturing off for their next activity.
Keswick Hall has a variety of unique and award-winning dining options. Fossett's, opened in 2004, is the signature restaurant of Keswick Hall, featuring a farm-to-table menu served with a spectacular views of the estate's pristine landscape and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
