Your picnic locations can be along the Blue Ridge Parkway, our local rivers or lakes, or even the Mill Mountain Overlook with views of the City of Roanoke and Virginia’s Blue Ridge. We have scenic hikes, and special picnic areas with you in mind. The Star below is illuminated at night and the reason Roanoke is called the Star City of the South.
This is a concert goer’s favorite and is available with advance notice added onto your room booking (select this online when you make your reservation). We would love for you to enjoy our 130 foot wrap around porch before a show, as part of the Claiborne House experience. This package is available for single night stays, and is a great way to relax and get in the mood for an awesome show at The Harvester Performance Center.
You can avoid the crowds waiting to dine before a show when your Picnic on the Porch can be enjoyed here, there or anywhere. We also provide wine glasses, opener for you to BYO wine of your choice. Then you can walk to The Harvester if you want to (here’s a walking map).
This is a Blue Ridge style casual picnic and includes (no substitutions please):
Cold southern fried chicken, tangy potato or macaroni salad like your Momma used to make, bread rolls with real butter, chips, bottled drinks made with real sugar like Cheerwine (a Piedmont favorite) or Mexican Coke (no HFCS) and of course a delicious dessert.
The cost for the Picnic on the Porch Package is only $29. (Not gluten free,not vegan, not sugar free – no substitutions please.)
