I'd like to take my boyfriend to Lake Sutton for his 30th birthday in July. We live in Richmond, Virginia,and I visited Sutton about 8 or so years ago and was shown a rock face you could jump off of into the water by a local. I don't remember how to get there. Anyone have directions and recommendations for a hotel?

I can't help you with the rock or info about Sutton Lake, but I can recommend a hotel. The nicest Hotel in the area is the Days Inn in Flatwoods. They have a nice restaurant and an indoor pool. There is an outlet mall nearby, and several other restaurants. Here's a link: http://www.flatwoods.com/

I also know nothing of the "jump-off" rock but figure when there a local could help you.

See http://www.cafeciminocountryinn.com/cafecimino/index.html

The cafe has a great reputation for food - figure the inn is also nice.

Cross the bridge at beautiful downtown Sutton and make a left at the end of the bridge. Go upstream along the Elk river to the Sutton Dam. Follow the road to the top of the Dam. There is a path to the right of the boat launch ramp and the dive location is a short distance up river. Park to the left.

Please be very cautious. There have been injuries there in the past. There is no lifeguard there so please bring a personal flotation device at least.

The Corp of Engineers discourages diving there
