Get Away: Hotel Weyanoke
Set in the college town of Farmville, Virginia, it features mid-mod furnishings in a historic brick building.
Set in the charming college town of Farmville, near Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College, the 70-room Hotel Weyanoke opened last May, occupying a historic brick building and a new “Cumberland” wing. All rooms and suites feature midcentury-modern furnishings. Catbird, the rooftop bar, offers sweeping views of town.
Sassafras, a gourmet coffee shop, and Effingham’s, an eatery with coal-fired pizzas, panini and salads, are also on the property. The wine bar and modern Italian fare at Campagna make for a lovely date-night dinner. You can walk or bike (rentals are available in the lobby) a few blocks from the hotel to an entrance for High Bridge Trail State Park that leads to the iconic High Bridge, a converted rails-to-trails bridge that spans the Appomattox River. Other nearby offerings include Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and the Green Front Furniture market. Rates begin at $129 per night for historic rooms; $139 for the Cumberland wing.
