The Blackburn Inn sits in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, in historical Staunton. The property, built in 1828 by Thomas Jefferson protégé Thomas R. Blackburn, still features original architectural elements such as arched doorways, vaulted ceilings and fireplaces in select guest rooms.
The inn offers a classic American look with red brick, whitewashed wood trim and light-filled hallways; however, rooms are modern in style and very spacious. Bathrooms are beautifully appointed with barn-style doors and rain showers. Select rooms offer soaking bathtubs. All rooms feature mobile-key access, Wi-Fi, coffeemakers and mini-fridges. A light European breakfast is complimentary, as is a glass of sparkling wine upon check-in.
The on-site restaurant, Second Draft, 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, or 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 with a big arts culture. Be sure to stroll through the in-house art gallery, which showcases the works of local artists. Guests looking to sample some of Virginia's best microbrews can explore the breweries along the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail, many located within an hour's drive of the inn. Guests also have access to the full-service fitness center. This hotel offers dog-friendly rooms and treats your furry friends to complimentary bowls, beds and treats.
