Do you consider yourself a Foodie?
A Foodie is someone who has an ardent interest in food, and who enjoys good food not just to satisfy hunger but also as a hobby. If that describes you or someone in your family, prepare yourself for a wonderfully delicious visit to Bath County, Virginia.
Bath County is Virginia’s hottest, up-and-coming destination for Foodies.
Visitors to Bath County often discover their new favorite chef and then return time and again just to see what new dishes have been added to the menu. Although Bath County is a rural community with fewer than 5,000 residents, it’s a popular getaway for travelers seeking relaxation amid the unspoiled mountains. A steady flow of discerning visitors over 250 years has made hospitality a part of our DNA. That’s why there are multiple fine dining restaurants across the county with talented chefs, one of whom might become your next favorite.
Another reason for the county’s growing reputation for food lovers is a recent renaissance in family farming. Chefs love the renewed interest in sustainable farming because it provides them with quality ingredients to offer genuine farm-to-table experiences. Foodies love it for the same reason, plus the opportunity to visit farms and bring home a taste of Bath County. The local agri-tourism scene includes a winery and cidery that are both available for tours and tastings with advance reservations.
Real Foodies have an interest in all kinds of food, not just fine dining. Over the course of a few days in Bath County, we hope visitors will try everything, including country cooking, sandwiches, wood fired pizza, salads, and, of course, the incredible breakfasts served by the local inns and resorts.
Bring your appetite. You’re about to experience Culinary Magic.
