By early June 2021, patrons of The Floyd Country Store will be able to enjoy a new outdoor dining space with great views of the Blue Ridge. Construction is underway on an 800 square foot deck that extends from the back of the building, with room for 10-12 tables. The new deck is easily accessed from the walkway that currently exists on the side of the building, which has fit a table or two in past years.
Construction of the back deck is made possible by grant funds to increase outdoor seating in the wake of the pandemic. Floyd and our beautiful area of Southwest Virginia expects to see an increase of tourism over the summer, with folks looking for a vacation full of outdoor adventures and great music along The Crooked Road. We at the Floyd Country Store are happy to be able to finish the deck in time to allow people to dine wherever they feel most comfortable.
The deck will also allow for more seating for our backyard music events, especially for those who have a harder time making it down the uneven terrain of the backyard. The music sounds great coming from the cottage porch stage, where many of our concerts have taken place in the warmer months over the past year. It will also make for a great space for outdoor music workshops with The Handmade Music School.
We look forward to opening up the deck for our patrons in the next few weeks!
