The Inn At Narrow
This colonial inn has been serving travelers along the Old Valley Turnpike for 250 years.
With its recent additions, it provides 12 comfortable guest rooms, a lovely colonial dining room, and executive conference facilities
The Inn at Narrow Passage is a restored colonial wagon stop along the Old Valley Pike (now U.S. Route 11) on the Shenandoah River. Its 12 cozy rooms and common areas are furnished with Early American reproductions and antiques.
Guests come to Narrow Passage to enjoy the outdoors -- hiking, horseback riding, canoeing and fishing -- and the heritage of the Shenandoah Valley, including wineries, antique shops, battlefields, caverns and seasonal festivals. Many prefer just to relax and walk along the country road from the inn across the river to the foot of the mountain. The swinging footbridge just upstream can add a little excitement!
In the main building, guests can enjoy the large common room, with its gleaming pine floors, wing chairs and massive limestone fireplace.
A hearty, fireside breakfast is served in the paneled dining room, with fine restaurants nearby for other meals.
The oldest guest rooms feature wood floors, stenciling and the atmosphere of colonial times.
Rooms in later additions are decorated in the same style, but open onto porches, with views of the Shenandoah River and the Massanutten Mountains to the east.

Rooms in later additions are decorated in the same style, but open onto porches, with pretty views across the lawn
toward the river and mountains to the east.
The Inn is fully air-conditioned and has complimentary wireless internet throughout. Most of our twelve rooms have queen sized beds, private baths, and fireplaces, which are used October through March. Many of our guest rooms have televisions and small refrigerators.
All the modern comforts have been added, but the old-fashioned hospitality and tradition are still here!

Hiking trails in the National Forest are ten minutes away. Maps to some of the more popular ones are available at the Inn. Horseback riding is another wonderful way to experience the beauty of the Valley. The Fort Valley Riding Stable offers one hour, half-day, and all-day trail rides for all abilities.
Because the Valley played such an important part in the Civil War, it is not surprising that its legacy lives on. Battlefields such as New Market and Cedar Creek give visitors a glimpse into one of the most heroic and tragic times in American history.
Every fall, over three thousand re-enactors converge on the grounds of the historic Belle Grove Plantation to recreate the Battle of Cedar Creek. This event is a must for any Civil War buff.
The Shenandoah River, along with nearby stocked, mountain trout streams, play host to some of the best fishing in the East. Nationally known fly fishing expert Harry Murray owns and operates his fly shop in Edinburg, two miles south of the Inn. Here you can find the latest hand-tied flies, as well as a large selection of Orvis rods and apparel. He also offers guide service and fishing schools.
An afternoon of canoeing or tubing is just a short walk from the Inn's back door on the Shenandoah River. The Shenandoah River Outfitters, about thirty minutes away on the South Fork, provides canoes and river shuttles.
Antique shops are just minutes away in the towns of Woodstock and Edinburg. You'll be sure to find that special gift to remember your stay in the valley.
Many of our guests enjoy visiting one of our area's caverns. Touring one of these magnificent works of nature provides a great way to escape the mid-day summer sun.
The fertile landscape of the Valley provides the perfect conditions for wine making. Shenandoah Vineyards and North Mountain Vineyard are just a five-minute drive from the Inn. Other wineries are within a short distance of the inn.
