Lynchburg Virginia Winter at the Kirkley Hotel

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains along the banks of the James River, Lynchburg is known as the "City of Seven Hills". Lynchburg, Virginia is nicknamed the Hill City due to its piedmont location proximate to the Blue Ridge Mountains bordering the Shenandoah Valley.

Rolling Greens in quite literally the geographic heart of Virginia, is the home of the Kirkley Hotel

"The Hill City" and sometimes described as "A City Unto Itself" because it is not located within any county limits, but a city in the middle of Amherst, Bedford, Campbell and Appomattox Counties. The Metropolitan area of Lynchburg is near the geographic center of Virginia and encompasses Amherst County, Appomattox County, Bedford County, Campbell County, City of Bedford, and City of Lynchburg.

Lynchburg was awarded a ranking of 15th best city in America.

Thomas Jefferson after his presidency made Poplar Forest outside Lynchburg his retirement home and called Lynchburg “the most interesting spot in Virginia.” Today, except for Richmond, Lynchburg has the largest treasure trove of historic and architecturally significant buildings in the Commonwealth.

Wherever you turn History is shared

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. —Edith Sitwell

Come to, or just passing through, Lynchburg is not to be missed. The Kirkely Hotel can be your source for new adventures

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. — John Steinbeck

Winter is a season of recovery and preperation. — Paul Theoroux

I don’t know about you, but I always take this time of year to reflect and prepare for the future. I need a reason to slow down, think about what’s going well and what I’d like to improve.

"Lynchburg isn't about getting somewhere, its about being somewhere. Being in the moment, being in a place of breathtaking beauty, being with good friends and family. Not to slow down, but to stop. Stop the clock, the moment, the thought, and appreciate just what a moment worth cherishing really feels like". -- Peter Greenburg

Hospitality comes from the spirit to serve, it come from the heart
