Bryce

Bryce Resort is located about two hours west of the DC metropolitan area, next to the George Washington National Forest in Shenandoah County. It rests in a small valley within the greater Shenandoah Valley, the “Valley of the Daughter of the Stars,” nestled against the West Virginia border in the Appalachian Mountain range. The elevation of the area varies from 1,263 feet to 1,760 feet. The area around Bryce Resort is typically ten degrees cooler and ten percent less humid than the DC area, with lilting breezes almost every day.

Bryce Resort has been offering outdoor activities to visitors since 1905. Traditionally speaking, it is a place where people sought respite from heat, humidity and busy professional lives. This is a trend that has continued well into the 21st century.

Quality of Life:

Today’s activities include golf, skiing, tennis, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, flying, and more recently, zip-line, bungee jumping, rock climbing and mini golf. Bryce is renowned for its sports clinics for people of all ages. Indoor activities include fine and casual dining, music, cards, and the meetings of various clubs and charitable organizations. The core area of Bryce Resort includes a lodge, a sports complex, a ski building, and a members lounge and locker room.

Fifty-two miles of private roads surround homes on the slopes, many of them with mountain views. There are two lakes, the largest of which, Lake Laura, has a beach area with lounge chairs, a concession stand, pedal boats, pontoons, and kayaks available for use. The water is soft and children grow up with fond memories of diving off pontoons or canoeing during the long, lazy days of summer. Fishing is allowed and permits are available at the community store. Boating is permitted, but no gasoline engines. Hunting is possible in the George Washington National Forest in season with a permit. Flying is done from the Sky Bryce Airport (VG-18) and it is an easy walk from the ramp to the Lodge and all activities. There is also an all-volunteer public library with Wi-Fi at the airport.

The Sky Bryce Homeowners Association provides road maintenance and snow removal, refuse pickup, and a roving security patrol. Homeowners enjoy underground utilities, public water and sewer service, high-speed Internet, and cable TV. In general, there are fewer outages in Bryce than in the DC metro area because of the underground utilities and the excellence of the utilities providers.

Homeowners in Bryce typically do not have lawns, since most of them have lawns at their principal residences, so the woods are deep and cool, and there is ample separation between homes for privacy. The area attracts people from all professions – some come just to relax and stay fit, others enjoy telecommuting from their Bryce home.

Whether you seek the peace of a natural setting in the Shenandoah or a lively day of sports and activities, Bryce Resort has something to offer all of your family and friends.
