Why We Love It

  • Enjoy free local wine and cheese samplings every Friday from 5-6 p.m.
  • Breathtaking views of the grounds and downtown from the rooftop cupola
  • The building was originally constructed by Thomas Jefferson's protege, Thomas R. Blackburn
  • Staunton, Virginia, was recently voted as one of America's favorite places by Travel + Leisure


The Blackburn Inn sits in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley in Staunton, a picturesque town known for the arts and full of history. The property just opened this spring as a boutique hotel, originally built in 1828 by Thomas Jefferson's protege, Thomas R. Blackburn. 

The inn offers a classic American look with red bricks, whitewashed wood trims and light-filled hallways; however, rooms here are modern in style and very spacious. Bathrooms on the other hand are beautifully designed with barn-style doors and rain showers. Select rooms even offer soaking bathtubs. Rooms feature mobile key access, free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers and minifridges. 

The Blackburn Inn has one on-site restaurant, Second Draft, which features locally sourced dishes and some of Virginia's best wines, beers and ciders. On good weather days, guests can enjoy bites and drinks from the property's large wraparound front porch. Take the spiral staircase up to the rooftop cupola for breathtaking views of the grounds and downtown Staunton. 

The city of Staunton, birthplace of President Woodrow Wilson, is a charming small town but with a big arts culture. Once a year in August, some of the most talented musicians from the U.S. and Europe come together for the Staunton Music Festival in Virginia. Guests looking to explore further can take part in the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail, all located within an easy hour's drive from one another.
