Meadow Lane Lodge & Cottages :: Part 3 :: The Rental Cottages [Warm Springs, VA]

In addition to the option of staying at the Lodge at Meadow Lane, they offer several fully equipped rental cottages scattered throughout the property. Below are photos of their rental units. The last one, the Jackson Cottage, is specifically for fly fishing guides.

Meadow Lane Lodge & Cottages :: Part 2 :: Jackson River Fly Fishing [Warm Springs, VA]

Nick introduced me to Meadow Lane shortly after we got married in 2010. He had stayed there with his family while in college and fell in love with the place. Not only was it an oasis outside of DC, but I couldn’t get over the beauty of the river and grounds. It probably helped that I kept crushing fish, and ended up catching the big fish of the trip. Sorry Nick! …wait, no I’m not! 🙂

So again, we were thrilled to be asked to take photos of the Jackson River & guests fly fishing.

And yes, you caught us ~ we did do a little fishing during our photo shoot at Meadow Lane. 🙂

Meadow Lane Lodge & Cottages :: Part 1 :: The Grounds & Lodge [Warm Springs, VA]

Last Spring, Nick and I were hired by Meadow Lane Lodge & Natural Retreats for a hospitality shoot down in Warm Springs, VA. We couldn’t have been more excited. Not only is Meadow Lane one of our favorite vacation spots, but the shoot involved everything we love about photography: fly fishing, people, landscapes, and architecture. This couldn’t have been any more tailor made. Below you’ll find some of our favorite images from the weekend. I have to warn you though, this is just the first of 3 posts. Not only were we hired to photograph the grounds at Meadow Lane, but the exteriors for each of their rental cottages, the exterior and interior of their guiding cottage, their 2.5 mile private stretch of the Jackson River (stocked with large rainbow, brown and steelhead trout), and another 2 mile stretch of the Jackson River in Warm Springs.

Now ladies, if you aren’t into fly fishing don’t let that discourage you from visiting Meadow Lane. Staying at the Lodge is the way to go. The Lodge has 5 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. In addition to the breakfast offered, there’s a full kitchen to use (minus an oven), a pool, tennis court, barnyard for the children, and some of the coziest rooms around (think fireplace, screened porch, living room, separate entrance, deck, etc.). Within a couple of miles of Meadow Lane there is a really cute wine and cheese shop (Milk House Market) and a fantastic/romantic restaurant to grab dinner in Warm Springs (Waterwheel Restaurant). They even let you down in the cellar to choose whatever wine you’d like for dinner (!).

So, go grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and see why we fell in love with Meadow Lane.
