The Inn at Mount Vernon Farm

147 Mount Vernon Lane , Sperryville, 22740 USA (Show map)


In 1827 John Miller Jr, "Poplar John", purchased Mount Vernon Farm and built his home on a knoll overlooking the fields and the Shenandoah mountains. From the front porch he could watch over his herd and relax to the sounds of nature. Five generations later we invite you to join us on the farm and step back in time to a place where you can put the stress of modern life behind you and unwind in a beautiful setting. -- The Millers

Lovely Stay

Everything about this place is amazing. I would recommend it for anyone. All of the staff is very welcoming and accommodating. It is a throw back to 19th century living with AC of course.

A Second, Wonderful Stay

My husband and I stayed here again (stayed a year prior) last week. As always, the home and rooms are lovely, comfortable and clean. The breakfast is fantastic. The late afternoon nosh/wine is a nice touch. The staff is helpful and super nice. Miss Lillian is a gem. I highly recommend this B&B.

Great get away!

We had a great stay, and only regret we couldn't stay longer! A perfect place to get away in the mountains. Don't hesitate to book this amazing property - lots to do nearby, or a great place to just stay put and relax.

Perfect Getaway

Better Than I Imagined

4.6 on June 28, 2018

Our stay at The Inn at Mount Vernon Farm was perfect. In fact, it was even better than we expected it to be. The house and grounds are beautiful... the views are spectacular and sitting outside in the gardens among the hillside is so very peaceful. One of our favorite things to do was to unwind in the cedar hot tub... I cannot tell you how relaxing it was... the smell of the cedar and the beauty of the landscape was perfect. The rooms throughout the inn are elegant and clean: gorgeous furnishings and rugs, very comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms with claw-foot tubs, a common area where they serve wine and cheese in the late afternoon, a kitchen with an old stone fireplace where they sit out cookies and nuts, as well as the makings for hot tea in case you get cravings in the middle of the night. And beyond all of these wonderful things, the very best thing is the staff... they truly are incredible. Our innkeeper, Sara, is a gem: such a refreshing personality and lovely person all-around. Miss Lillian, a long-time fixture in the inn is the cook (and oh my... she can cook!). Breakfast was absolutely scrumptious! We also met the owner, Cliff, and he is just as friendly and charming as can be. If you are looking for a place of beauty where you can unwind and simply breath and relax, this is the place! We will absolutely be going back!

A return trip

I return to the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm twice a year, sometimes alone and other times with family. The historic house has been in the Miller family since 1827. Spacious bedrooms decorated with antiques and Turkish carpets have large, up-to-date bathrooms. A healthy breakfast (organic fruit salad, eggs and meats, and gluten-free breads) is served downstairs in the dining room by the old kitchen. Late afternoons, guests join Cliff Miller, a 6th-generation steward of the farm, for wine and conversation. The visit is a personal experience as guest is welcomed by Cliff and his staff of Lillian, Cindy, Sarah and Tessa. The Headmaster Pub with its 9-hole golf course, hiking trails and other Sperryville restaurants are a short walk from the inn. Day trips can include the Shenandoah National Park, James Madison’s Montpelier and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, historic Culpeper and vineyards.

Perhaps the Best Experience Ever in an Upscale B&B/Inn

5 on June 07, 2018

Reviewed yesterday We are Californians in Search of the Perfect Virginia Mountain Experience, and we scored! First, as dedicated travelers, we want to establish that this was perhaps the best "Inn" experience we've ever had. The Inn at Mt. Vernon is not only spectacularly beautiful, it is hosted by warm gracious - and environmentally responsible - stewards of 800 acres of Virginia scenery which connects you with what we must preserve and appreciate. We are Californians who have always wanted to experience the Shenandoah Natl. Park and eventually the Blue Ridge Mts., and fortunately we found this Inn. The owner cares about his responsibility as the keeper of the 200 year old property, and he is warm, personable and caring about your experience. It is wonderfully appointed, beautiful rooms with family heirlooms and furnishings, and a perfect place to begin your journey in this very special region of our country. There is even a large lama and donkey duo who protect his valuable livestock :) We may rethink our view that as Californian's we have it all. We highly recommend this amazing Inn.

We stayed two nights and absolutely adored it. For some reason, I was unable to check the 5th circle - if I had been able to, that's what I would've checked. The hosts were lovely, the room was gorgeous, and they did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and at home. Highly recommended!

This was our first B&B experience and this place surpassed our expectations. Will do this place in the future.
