Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley the Inn at Old Virginia represents the perfect balance of historic grace and modern day amenities. The peacefulness and charm of our 10 rooms and suites are surrounded by picturesque rolling hillsides. Each morning the complimentary gourmet breakfast is served in our English style glass conservatory. This Civil War era property offers a peaceful getaway located just minutes from Staunton & Harrisonburg Virginia and interstate 81. The two buildings comprising the Inn are both luxuriously appointed with imported antique furniture, oriental rugs, area and period inspired artwork, soothing color palettes and modern accessories. In the Main House, you will find the Conservatory, a cozy living room showcasing a small library of books and movies, as well as a brick fireplace. Guests can enjoy the skyline of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the Inn’s landscaped outdoor patios. Architecturally designed to preserve the original structural integrity, the newly renovated Barn, contains eight of the Inn’s rooms as well as a beautiful common area with vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace and outdoor decks, where guests can enjoy views of the Valley.

A great time at Old Virginia

Just what my wife and I needed to end a very trying summer. My only regret is that we had to leave! Will definitely consider going back. Tim and Amanda O'Quinn

Perfect Weekend!

5 on September 14, 2017

Our stay at the Inn was perfect! We stayed in the Jed Hotchkiss room on the main floor in the renovated Barn and we were very comfortable. The views from the deck were beautiful. Kathryn, Laina, Garrett and the staff made us feel welcome and were really helpful. The breakfast and cookies were delicious too. We enjoyed sipping wine while watching the cows graze. Only suggestion would be to place more Adirondack chairs throughout the property to take advantage of the gorgeous grounds and the views! Everything was wonderful. We're already planning our next visit. Thank you again!

A Mountain View

5 on August 22, 2017

We arrived Thursday late afternoon. We bought a bottle of wine from the little gift shop. Inn provided glasses & opener. We had a glass of wine on the deck and watched the sunset. What a lovely setting-peaceful and scenic. Our room had a sleep number bed. After a long trip, we appreciated a great night's sleep. The breakfast was wonderful. It's served in the conservatory which has a view of the grounds. We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
When considering opening a Bed & Breakfast, one of our ultimate goals was to provide a quiet and relaxing environment. I'm glad to hear that you were able to enjoy it. Please do come again. We would truly love to see you. It's a delight to have our "repeat" guests who often become "family." Thanks again..

Relaxing Getaway

My husbsnd and I got away for a long weekend. This was the perfect place for so much needed relaxing. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We plan to make this a yearly trip.

First But Not Last Time!

Our stay at the inn was wonderful!! We had no prior knowledge of the area or other inns, and were not sure what to expect? Kathryn and staff helped make our stay memorable. We were treated as family and they went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. Kathryn was kind enough to show us and explain the inn's restoration process. When we needed a wrench, one of her staff allowed us to use his own personal one. We know that the next time we are in Staunton, we will be stay at the Inn. There is no need to look elsewhere.

We begin each breakfast with a bowl of fresh fruit and another small ramekin of vanilla yogurt topped with our "home made" granola. It has become so popular, we constantly sell out in the Inn's Gift Shop. We've also received requests from throughout the US.
