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.

The most unique thing about this hotel is giant porch of the building. You can have breakfast or enjoy time in the evening with hills on background and nice green lawn upfront!

This was our second visit to the Blackburn Inn. We love it there! It is a beautiful Inn and the staff are all very pleasant and eager to please. You can walk to downtown where there are shops and restaurants. Woodrow Wilson home and museum were very interesting too. Breakfast was very good.

Only complaint was that the room was very small, although beautifully decorated. Next time we might try for a larger room.

Not much to do there and no pool. No real restaurant and what was there ran out of food. Nice breakfast, prosecco when arriving and beautiful restoration. Close to historic district.

What a beautifully restored hotel with an interesting history. However, customer service needs improvement. The first night I was there, I went to the tea service outside of the registration desk. There were no herbal or decaffeinated teas. The next morning, I checked at breakfast, ditto. So I went to the registration desk. I was told that there was a Walmart about a mile down the road and they were sure I could buy some there. Although water was supposed to be supplied at one bottle a day, I had to go to the registration deck the second day as my fridge was not restocked. I went to the bar both nights to have a drink and socialize,, but there were no people there. The pastries at breakfast were outstanding.

Unique venue. Beautifully restored.

The room could really have used a closet or more hangers. Also, pegs in the bathroom to hang the towels. But, just little tiny things that could be tweaked. Staff was helpful and friendly.
