We left my Mom’s after a 9-day stay. It rained off and on all the way from the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia to Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We experienced all of spring in that day, going from 50 degree rain in West Virginia, through redbuds and dogwood blooming in Virginia until we arrived at Tanglewood Park with tall oaks and tulip trees already leafing out. There we stayed for 2 nights.
Tanglewood Park, just southwest of Winston-Salem, is the former estate of Will and Katherine Reynolds. The Manor House Bed and Breakfast offers more luxurious accommodations, while the RV Park is open to those of us who are traveling with our homes. This park is very well kept and provided us with lovely and easy first paid nights in a park. It is RV only and not the kind of campground we are used to, but it was nice and we had a good time there. While there are no campfire rings, charcoal grills are allowed and each site has a picnic table. Additionally, each of the 44 sites has complete hook-ups, some are pull throughs and others are back in only. It is pet-friendly (on a leash) but motorcycles, motor scooters and golf carts are not allowed. Tents and canopies are also not permitted. For a complete listing of all rules and regulations check http://rvtanglewood.com . Rates are $31 per night and reservations are recommended.
The rest of the park includes two nice loops of paved trail with mountain bike trails criss-crossing in between, a dog park, horse stable, stocked ponds for fishing, swimming pools, tennis, an arboretum and gardens and golf courses with a clubhouse. The park also offers nature programs and farmers’ markets in the summer. We spent most of our time there biking, scootering and visiting with nearby family. We look forward to staying there again in the future.
