The award-winning Middleton Inn, circa 1840, is one of Virginia's most elegant country estates, offering Southern graciousness and gentility, acres of scenic meadows and gorgeous views of the mountains in the historic village of Washington, Virginia. It is a short, pleasant stroll along village streets to the world renowned restaurant at the Inn at Little Washington. Middleton has been awarded, for the past 15 years, the prestigious Four Diamond AAA Award for "providing exceptional accommodations, excellent service and an elegant atmosphere." Middleton Inn offers five accommodations: four in the grand manor house and a romantic, historic cottage. All accommodations have working fireplaces, private baths, high speed Internet, and most have breathtaking views of the mountains. Middleton Miller, who manufactured the Confederate uniform during the Civil War, built the manor house.

Sublime getaway

5 on May 28, 2014

The team at Middleton Inn is friendly, helpful, talented and artistic so there is beauty in every detail of decorating and with breakfast: the meals are delicious- freshly made ginger scones, omelets with asparagus and gruyere- Virginia country bacon and flavorful broiled tomatoes. I plan to return as soon as possible for rest and relaxation and more to explore in the charming town of Little Washington and in the Shenandoah. The Inn is not just an hour and a half away from Washington, D.C.- it is light years away from city stress and tension -yet with all of the modern comforts and conveniences- and down a long pebbled lane and into another world.

Middleton Inn -- A Washington, Virginia Gem

5 on May 15, 2014

My husband and I come to Washington, Virginia every year for our wedding anniversary and to celebrate it by dining at the Inn at Little Washington. We stayed at the Middleton Inn when we first came there and were so charmed, we've returned ever since. The Federal manor house (built in 1850) sits right off of Main Street on a charming 6-acre farm with incredible vistas and gorgeous landscaping. The farm is host to 2 horses, as well as a small contingent of the sweetest cats and dogs you could ever meet. They are all there to welcome you as you arrive along with the fabulous owner and proprietor, Mary Ann Kuhn. With Mary Ann, generosity and warmth have always pervaded our stays. Also, given the number of times we have been there, there isn't a room we haven't stayed in. All are gorgeously appointed in furniture reflecting the Federal period; and the cottage is a wonderful and cozy haven! And the breakfast!!!! Oh my! One cannot say enough good things about this meal! You are not only doted upon, but the quality and standard of the food is absolutely delightful. I am always sorry to leave, but am always refreshed and revitalized at the end of our stay!

Perfect Overnight Visit

We just returned from a fabulous overnight stay in the cottage house at the Middleton Inn. Everything was fantastic. The setting is magnificent with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The accommodations were terrific with a comfortable bed, jacuzzi for 2, and sitting area, although not for everyone due to the stairs. We were provided a delicious breakfast in the cabin. Mary Ann and staff made our visit so special. We cannot wait for our next visit.

Excellent Weekend Getaway

The property and the rooms are lovely. The food and the service is just as nice. We have stayed at this place many times over the years -- and again on Easter Weekend. As refined as the Inn is, I love the fact that it is also home to a large group of well-loved and well-behaved critters: Two sweet yellow labradors, a horse and at least six happy and affectionate cats. The owner's obvious love for her creatures and her property pervade the place. We can't wait to return.

We just returned from a weekend at Middleton Inn. The setting is gorgeous and we loved the attention to period details inside. The staff is warm, friendly and very accommodating. Our breakfasts were beyond fabulous and served in a lovely dining room complete with antique furnishings and beautiful tabletop pieces. Bouquets to Mary Ann for a job well done! We have already recommended Middleton Inn.
