Absolutely NO cell phone service. Great Wifi tho. Great place, had a blast, took my girlfriend there for her bday, she loved it. Def bring your own sheets/comforter/pillows. It's really just one good sized room. The grounds are a lil spooky at night time because it's pitch black and we almost went the entire time not seeing a single person. Highlight was the night we used the fireplace, well stocked. Also Stone mountain vineyard and Shenandoah park are close and I highly recommend going to both. Overall great 1st Air bnb experience and I would def stay there again but I like going new places so maybe not. I would recommend trying to have friends or family go as well and stay in the other rooms on the resort while your there, def would be way more fun!

I had the lovely opportunity to stay at The Barn. Immediately you will be amazed at the custom architecture design and unique wooden pieces. There are shared living spaces and private houses available with plenty to offer on the grounds.

We absolutely loved our stay at the White Lotus Zen Barn. It is such a unique space, so peaceful. We had an amazing time swinging on the giant swing in the barn during a crazy July thunder & lighting storm. We loved how close we were to Skyline Drive. We definitely recommend the Bearfence Mountain Trail's rock scramble and the South River Falls Trail (both within in a half hour drive from the White Lotus)! David is a fantastic host, and the White Lotus is definitely a place we hope to come to again!

My stay in Suite B at the Zen Barn was exactly what I was hoping for. It was the perfect place to disconnect from all the noise, and seek a little clarity. Loved the big tub, and the deck. The indoor porch swing down on the lower level in the barn was a fabulous touch.
