Near the Virginia Creeper Trail -- a 17-mile downhill ride though beautiful mountain scenery -- the Millsap-Baker Estate is a new Bed & Breakfast in Damascus, Virginia. This Queen Anne Victorian home, built by our great-great uncle in 1895, has now been fully restored and furnished in the grand style of the period. You’ll notice every detail welcomes you; inside you’ll be embraced by magnificent antiques and warm seclusions, and outside by the natural beauty of the Virginia mountains. Fall in love with the historic Millsap-Baker Estate and a bygone era as you celebrate your special event or relaxing vacation.

We'd stay again

4.8 on August 05, 2014

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B while attending the 2014 Virginia Highland Festival. Very comfortable home in a great setting. The hosts are warm and engaging - preparing a hearty home cooked breakfast each morning. Many extras. We will stay here again!

This is a very beautiful home. We enjoyed the privacy of the location. The owners were great hosts. Our breakfasts were delicious. I highly recommend staying at the Millsap-Baker Estate.

Very impressive!

This house was so very impressive! I was there for an evening event, but we got there in time to see the outside. It was landscaped beautifully. There were two old fashioned porch swings in the trees and a cool looking barn. There was a big open field to park a lot of cars. The house was really neat, it was decorated with all kinds of antiques that fit it well with the time period of the house. I liked almost all of the food and the owners were very nice and friendly. I had a really good time.

A lovely experience!

I stayed at the Millsap-Baker Estate for the weekend about a month ago, and the place is absolutely gorgeous! The woodwork of the kitchen cabinets is lovely, (the kichen is HUGE) and the cabinets go from the ceiling to the marbled floor. I was entranced by the victorian style dining room ornate! But my favorite room had to be the library. It's a very atmospheric room! Everybody was extremely nice to me over my stay. I very much enjoyed my stay.

My fiance and I stayed here on a trip through the area. Not only is Damascus a wonderful area but this house was a highlight of our trip. It was beautifully restored and furnished with some of the most georgous furniture I have ever seen. The owners were very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Another nice thing is that you can hold events there like weddings... which of course really interested my fiance! All in all, a VERY nice place to stay, in a wonderful town!

Great place for a nice party.

We held a family party at this beautiful home. It was like going back into time. The home was decorated in early 1900's . It was so elegant and even picture perfect. There was plenty of room for the eighteen of us. We were able to utilize the entire bottom floor. We did look upstairs and the rooms were very nice. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to host a nice party or club event.

Bay Room

With its 14' vaulted bay ceiling; full bay windowed wall; custom queen bed; and magnificent view of the estate's main grounds, original barn (c.1875), love-seat tree swing, enormous Ginkgo tree, and lovely shared bath, it has become a cherished favorite. Graced with an 8' custom-queen bed and dresser set made by perhaps the greatest 19th century furniture maker, Prudent Mallard (c.1870), and with a rare, high-back Victorian baby crib (c.1885), this gem is truly special. Facing the south-west, its second floor bay view of the mountain sunset over the tree-covered horizon is truly inspiring!

Tower Room

With its second-floor, bay window view of the morning sunrise and cliff-overlook deck, this bedchamber easily has the most splendid view, if you're a morning person! The room has just been fully redecorated, though not in the grand Victorian style, rather in a style more consistent with its early 1800s American Empire furniture. This includes a magnificent 1830s Butler's desk and 1820s upholstered bench, chair, and lovely shared bath. But perhaps the loveliest piece, and the oldest furniture item in the house, is the c.1810 curved-back mahogany, queen bedstead - truly magnificent.
