of nowhere,” she said. Stables, hiking trails, pool, gun club, restaurant and lounge have all been added to the ranch since the Amyx family first developed Rockbridge. Lodging, including standard rooms,


suites and condos, is available on the property. There also are seven houses, including a remodeled 1800s farmhouse and 1870s miller house, for rent for groups.

Rockbridge features its own trout hatchery, ensuring a creel full of trout for guests. The hatchery raises 300,000 fish annually.
