Hotels & Lodging Facilities
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Stevenson Ridge is a lodging and special event facility. Guests are able to stay in one of six private cottages. 'The Lodge' is a premier event facility that will host events for up to 200 guests.
Stevenson Ridge is committed to being "Green." We hope that our guests will take advantage of the special services that we offer.
Stevenson Ridge maintains trails on the property, purchases local products for the breakfast basket, and maintains environmentally friendly practices.
Stevenson Ridge preserves historic buildings from the 18th and 19th century. While renovating properties to supply guests with modern conveniences, the Bed & Breakfast minimizes the production of building materials. The Bed & Breakfast also plans to begin composting perishables in the near future.
