From its Greek Revival architecture to the stone ruins that dot the expansive property, the historic Berry Hill Resort is sure to add some elegance to your Instagram account. The mansion’s interior is decorated to recreate the atmosphere the Bruce family would have enjoyed in the 19th century, conjuring the opulence and decadence of a bygone era. Strike a pose in the Library Bar, lined with bookshelves and old paintings, with a book or a cocktail. The surrounding grounds present abundant photo opportunities.

Just outside of town lies Edmunds Park, an expanse that was once farmland. Rolling hills give way to a pond, woods, complete with creeks and walking trails that run across the property. The former pastureland presents wide open spaces, with silos dotting the horizon. Alternatively, shaded trails in the woods cross babbling brooks, offering a sense of wilderness and solitude. The park is also home to the Southern Virginia Botanical Garden, where photographers can find a colorful variety of native flowers when in bloom. Lastly, a Native American Medicine Wheel can be found on the property. Totems and wood carvings of animals are prominently displayed, further enforcing the park’s connection to nature. For anyone hoping to add some natural beauty to their Instagram, Edmund’s Park is a must-stop.
