We visited this resort in the fall so a lot of the amenities such as the outdoor pools were closed. The indoor pool at Le Club was also closed for maintenance the entire week; however we did take advantage of zumba, tennis and hiking.

This little art co-op is a good place to visit for souvenirs. Beautiful art at reasonable prices. The chain link jewelry was especially nice.

This studio has absolutely gorgeous art! Fascinating, unusual pieces that make you want to buy one of everything!

Finally went in after all these years driving by. It's too bad it's closing! Must be a tough location - people must drive by without stopping in (like me). There were a lot of beautiful prints and pieces of jewelry. Outside is like an oasis in the woods. Very pretty.

The owners are both highly skilled artists and their small shop has hand carved wooden bowls, handmade jewelry, paintings, and assorted other quality items.

Don't count on posted hours! We returned on Friday as we were leaving Masanutten to purchase a wind chime that we had seen the day before. We waited until their posted hour outside a closed gate for 20 minutes after the time they were posted to open. We had already delayed our departure to meet their open hour time. When... More
