Le Lord Fairfax Country House est situé sur onze hectares de la propriété. Datant de 1732, il est une maison en rondins fascinant construit par le cinquième Lord Fairfax, un bâtiment d'où il partit à cheval chaque jour pour étudier grandes propriétés foncières de King George dans le Nouveau Monde. Sur ses incursions, Lord Fairfax a été aidé par le jeune George Washington, agissant comme son expert. La ville historique de Middleburg, à seulement 3 miles de là, tire son nom d'être à mi-chemin entre la ville portuaire d'Alexandrie coloniale et la ville de l'intérieur de Winchester. C'était une ville importante pour les voyageurs et les commerçants à l'époque coloniale, parce que le commerce a été réalisée sur entre les Indiens de la Blue Ridge Mountains et les commerçants avec des marchandises à bord des navires amarrés sur le Potomac. Un séjour dans Le Seigneur Fairfax Country House est exclusif à un couple à la fois et commence par une attaque éclair sur le cercle couverte de pins qui révèle la maison en bois de deux étages, environnée par les arbres, arbustes, pelouses vallonnées et les champs. Vous allez entrer dans une atmosphère d'élégance et d'histoire, et vous serez invité dans la salle à manger formelle pour le vin et le fromage dans la vie privée ou, si vous préférez, avec l'aubergiste pour un chat sur les faits saillants de la vieille maison et ses points à proximité de intérêt.

From the beginning to end, our stay at Lord Fairfax Country House fulfilled our expectations and more--a lovely setting in the rolling horse country, a unique experience, sleeping in Lord Fairfax's house, offering a very personal taste of history, with a delightful owner/innkeeper well-versed in all aspects of the life of the Middleburg area. She greeted us on the front steps and served as a perfect and very savvy hostess for our two-day stay. Our meals were served in the historic main dining room of the Fairfax house, from the breakfast of our choice (we chose the yummy French Toast) to a lovely candlelight dinner. The upstairs sleeping area gives one the feel of a 1700s house, but with the comforts and amenities expected of our time. Highly recommended!

Lodging at The Lord Fairfax Country House is the closest thing that one can do to experience the elegance and comfort of Eighteenth Century Virginia life without also enduring the privations and pestilence of those times. Although The Lord Fairfax house dates to the 1730s, it has been restored so as to preserve all of the original features while unobtrusively incorporating insulation, heating, cooling, electricity and plumbing...no chamber pot is required here! The Inn is located in the rolling hills of hunt country and is impeccably and comfortably furnished with exquisite taste. The hospitality of the Innkeeper is gracious and thoughtful without being intrusive, and no detail is left unattended. After only a few days, we felt as though we had travelled to a gracious and tranquil place far away in time. I recommend it without reservation (but, you should make a reservation).

I generally do not like B&Bs. The reason - forced interaction with other guests. No problem here. You are the only guests. Walking into a log house may raise a red flag, but the facade gives way to an elegant 18th century interior. The spacious living room and dining room share a fireplace. The lighting throughout is low and adds to the authenticity of the period. At the same time everything is formal, it is also comfortable and immaculate. The spacious bedroom upstairs has a huge king size bed. We were greeted by the proprietor, who immediately offered us a glass of wine. Since we know the area well, our conversation was mainly about how she could help make it most comfortable for us. Since our purpose for being there meant early morning departures, Carolyn Smith provided us with perfect breakfasts on each of the four mornings we were there. Our only regret was we did not get to use the fireplace because it was really too warm and by the time we returned each evening, we were too tired. I highly recommend this property. And, we plan to return on our annual visits to the area.

This private, but very charming bed and breakfast country house made for an unforgettable experience in the heart of horse country. I truly enjoyed my overnight stay at the Lord Fairfax, complete with cocktail hour and a hearty breakfast. The innkeeper is one of the most kind and thoughtful around, and made my stay even more remarkable by providing me information on nearby shopping and dining. This would make for a very romantic getaway in the future as well.
