In the Blue Ridge Mountains of northeastern Virginia, you’ll find a lot more than gorgeous scenery and historical attractions. Case in point – this wonderful classic Inn for sale in western Virginia. This lovely little Inn makes the most out of its excellent location and beautiful property, and it’s a perfect destination for weddings, events, and honeymoons.
A successful entrepreneur and physician originally built the main Inn building in the 1840s as a manor and weekend home. He and his family and friends used the home as a getaway and hunting base; the guest list once included former President Thomas Jefferson. Updated over the years, the building eventually became a popular bed-and-breakfast and restaurant serving visitors and local residents alike.
Each of the Inn’s 10 guest rooms feature comfortable accommodations and unique décor, as well as wireless Internet access and private en suite bathrooms. Six of the guest rooms also have flat-screen televisions with DVD players and satellite TV stations, while the antique clawfoot tubs and large Jacuzzi-style baths in many rooms will ensure your guests are clean and comfortable.
The Inn is also known for the elegant, 35-seat restaurant and dining room attached to the Inn, which currently serves a menu of fine international cuisine (filet mignon, anyone?). With picturesque views of the nearby Blue Ridge mountains, the on-site restaurant should sate guests’ appetite for fine dining with a view.
As gorgeous and well appointed as this Virginia inn for sale is, the location offers a desirable variety of outdoor activity, history and natural beauty. Located right in the heart of Virginia’s wine country, this Inn gives visitors access to a number of the finest local wineries and breweries. Some guests have even taken to calling this region the “Brew Ridge Trail” for the large volume of local brewers nearby.
Guests with an interest in history or Americana will also love the inn’s close proximity to historical sites such as Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, James Madison’s Montpelier, and James Monroe’s Ash Lawn-Highland. All of these presidential residences are within easy driving distance of the Inn, as are a number of other museums and historical sites.
Along with historical sites, this Inn is almost surrounded by natural entertainment and beauty. The nearby Shenandoah National Park offers plenty of hiking, cycling, and fishing, while the Wintergreen Resort allows your guests to ski, golf, play tennis, ride horses, and much else besides. There are also nearby opportunities for white water rafting and river kayaking, as well as horseback riding and boating.
Guests can also easily drive to nearby Charlottesville, just about 40 minutes away. Home to the University of Virginia as well as plenty of restaurants and other attractions, Charlottesville offers guests plenty of options for a day or night out, thanks to its restaurants, live music and other entertainment.
