Local Lifestyle

The town of Round Hill originally developed around the terminus of historic Washington to Ohio railroad in the late 19th Century. The unincorporated village of Bluemont is nestled at the eastern base of the Blue Ridge Mountains’ Snickers Gap. Lying at the highest elevation of any community in Loudoun County, Bluemont’s scenic views over the Virginia Piedmont and Shenandoah Valley made it a popular resort destination in the early 20th Century. Both communities continue to attract visitors in the 21st Century with farms, vineyards, and access to both the W&OD Trail and Appalachian Trail.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Bluemont’s gorgeous natural landscape made it a popular getaway from Washington D.C. for politicians and diplomats in the early 20th Century. This historic resort town still has plenty to offer visitors including Loudoun County Wine Country vineyards, craft beer breweries, and the delightful 400-acre destination of Great County Farms. This working farm lets visitors pick their own seasonal fruits and veggies. There’s also a farm market offering farm-fresh produce and eggs alongside locally made honey, cheese, baked goods, preserves, and meat. Other attractions at Great County Farms include giant mazes, animal exhibits, an 18-hole cow pie putt putt course, a cow train, a fishing pond, and a farm play area with huge slides and swings. Bluemont Vineyard offers wine tasting flights and chef’s table dining on a gorgeous winemaking estate with panoramic views over the bucolic Virginia countryside.
Dirt Farm Brewery is another highlight of Bluemont’s rolling countryside. The farm has a hop yard and barley fields which produce the essential ingredients for an exceptional range of craft ales. In Round Hill, Tammie’s Diner is a classic American diner serving delicious blueberry pancakes and other scrumptious specialties.
