Beyond the sandy shores of the Virginia Beach coastline, lies a simple and casual community devoted to preserving it’s natural resources and its pivotal role in American History. First Landing State Park, where the English settlers first made landfall in 1607, is rich in natural raw elements such as bald cypress swamps, lagoons, and a maritime forest.   Rough textures of ancient woods create a strong contrast to the smooth reflective waters of the lagoons.   Residing within the complex network of wooded estuaries, the Oyster of Lynnhaven is a local delicacy which is the foundation of the hotel’s material palette – a juxtaposition of rough textures and smooth polished features.    This composition of rustic and refined materials offers guests a glimpse of the coastal Virginia lifestyle beyond the beach.
