Staunton’s Fall Foliage: Weekend of November 9-11

The autumn colors peaked in Staunton last week, and boy were they spectacular. While many of the trees have dropped their leaves in the past few days, there’s still time to see touches of color. Plan to visit the Staunton Farmer’s Market on one of its final weeks this Saturday and check for some color in the historic Wharf area and nearby on the grounds of Trinity Church.

Gypsy Hill Park

The Virginia Department of Forestry  reports peak fall foliage this week, especially at areas below 3000 feet. The weather should be sunny and in the 40s this weekend, so get out there and enjoy the mountains and the Shenandoah Valley in all their glory. Take advantage of Fee-Free Entry Day at Shenandoah National Park on Sunday, November 11.  Here’s a link to the park’s list of suggested hikes or plan to leaf peep from your car while cruising along the Skyline Drive.

The Virginia Department of Forestry estimates that 50-75 percent of the trees have changed. Check out the views along the Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and from the top of Shenandoah Mountain to the west.

Staunton’s Fall Foliage Report: Weekend of October 26-28

You won’t need to look hard to see autumnal colors this weekend as you move around Staunton. Though our fall foliage display isn’t yet as vibrant as in years past, it’s starting to really feel like fall, and you’ll still find some beautiful backgrounds for your seasonal photos. Check here every week for our updated fall foliage report.

Gypsy Hill Park

Beyond Staunton

Interestingly, according to the Virginia Department of Forestry, “individual trees planted in urban and suburban landscapes often color earlier than those in the forest.” So, while elevation impacts temperature, which can affect color, you’re likely to see pops of color in town before widespread changes in the mountains.  The fall foliage changes are coming, though, so get out on the trail and be the first to spot them!

Staunton’s Fall Foliage Report:

weekend of October 19-21

Virginia’s trees are still pretty green, but here’s hoping this week’s cooler weather will bring on some eagerly anticipated colors. According to Smoky Mountain National Park’s Fall Foliage Prediction Map, we should look for the leaves to peak over the next two weekends. Check here every week for our updated fall foliage report.

Gypsy Hill Park

Beyond Staunton

Bundle up when you set out on the trail this weekend. Those exposed higher elevations can be downright blustery. The cold, the shorter days, and the breakdown of chlorophyll should allow some yellow and orange to shine through – if the leaves don’t fall off the trees first. According to the Virginia Department of Forestry, the warm weather until now has limited the production of red pigments. “25-30% of the trees have changed color, but red colors are still lacking in most spots.” See the full report here.

Staunton’s Fall Foliage Report:

weekend of October 12-14

We’re a week into October – normally prime leaf peeping season – and Staunton’s trees are still mainly wearing their summer colors. Some leaves have fallen, giving kids opportunities to play, but you’ll need to wait a bit longer for those iconic autumnal photos. Check here every week for our updated fall foliage report.

Gypsy Hill Park

Beyond Staunton

It’s been great weather for getting outside and hiking, but even at higher elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the views are deeply green. The Virginia Department of Forestry attributes the slower-than-normal changes to the “abundant rain of late summer and fall.” They suggest looking for “early changers like black gum, poison ivy, dogwood, Virginia creeper, and sumacs flashing shades of red along forest edges.” See the full report here.

Both offer spectacular views of fall colors and will give you access to hikes in Shenandoah National Park or George Washington and Jefferson National Forests.

Check out Wenger Grape Farms for grapes and information about how grapes are grown.

Fall Treats from Downtown Shops

All products are handcrafted without artificial preservatives from fruits and vegetables grown on the farm.

Check out their recipe page for ideas using their local cheese.

Dine on the Season

Staunton has so many fine eateries specializing in creative and seasonal farm-to-table fare, it’s difficult to walk downtown without salivating. Feeling like pie? Check out something delicious and unusual, like Concord grape, from Firkin Pie Company, known for both savory and sweet crusted masterpieces. If you’re strolling west along Beverley Street or exploring historic Thornrose Cemetery, visit the Anne Hathaway Cottage Tea Room for tea and a selection of light meals, including a Victorian high tea. After a morning at the park, try Mike Lund Food & LUNdCH’s stover salad. It includes roast beets, spiced pecans, and shaved fennel and apple, with bleu cheese and an herb vinaigrette. A good bet for dinner is Zynodoas local and seasonal Autumn Olive Farm slow-roasted pork. This comfort food feast is served with southern-style cabbage slaw, baked beans, and Highland County maple barbeque. If you’re dining at The Shack, plan to bookend your main course with seasonal treats.

Staunton’s Historic Hotels

The Blackburn Inn

The Blackburn Inn officially opened its doors this Spring. This 49-room luxury boutique hotel in downtown Staunton,
has a storied past dating back to the 1800s. What was once the Main Administration Building for Western State Hospital, The Blackburn Inn was envisioned and influenced by master builder and Thomas Jefferson protégé, Thomas R. Blackburn. This historic building was originally constructed in 1828 and was most likely built by several of Jefferson’s workmen who worked on the then, recently completed University of Virginia.

 

Guests and visitors at The Blackburn Inn are greeted with stately columns, wide corridors and hallway arches, vaulted ceilings, and an original wood staircase allowing guests to access the rooftop atrium offering breathtaking 360-degree views of downtown Staunton. The Inn honors the age and elegance of the building with other notable design elements to include original heart pine floors that flow throughout the hotel, classic molding around the doorways, an antique style drafting table that serves as the reception desk, and artwork from local and regional artisans showcasing Staunton’s emerging arts scene.

The Blackburn Inn features seasonal events on the lawn and throughout the hotel for both locals and visitors to enjoy as well as locally-sourced food and beverage at The Inn’s bistro and bar, Second Draft.

The Stonewall Jackson Hotel

The Stonewall Jackson originally opened in 1924, served as the premier gathering place for Shenandoah Valley society and a welcoming place for visitors to the Queen City. Designed by renowned American architect H.L. Stevens in the Colonial Revival style, the hotel’s grand lobby evokes a sense of Southern spirit and hospitality with its terrazzo floors, glass display cases, chandeliers and wall sconces. The Colonnade Ballroom features graceful 15-foot arched windows, refurbished floors, light fixtures, moldings and detailed decorative ironwork; all of which has been painstakingly restored after the hotel fell into disrepair. 

The Stonewall Jackson Hotel faced hard times during the 1960s and onward, as Staunton’s once vibrant downtown gave way to commerce and growth in fast-developing suburban and rural areas — a typical sign of the times. In 1968, the Persinger family purchased the hotel and reopened it as an assisted living facility with the owners hoping to one day restore the hotel to its original grandeur.  In 2004, the Stonewall Jackson began a $21.1 million renovation and expansion was and re-opened as a full service luxury hotel and meeting facility in October 2005. In 2018, the Stonewall Jackson Hotel underwent a $2 million refresh and just recently, unveiled the property’s stylish renovation.
