This bed and breakfast offered everything we needed and more. We picked this place specifically for some down time, peace and quiet and that's exactly what we got. The place was so calm and inviting. The pool was a wonderful plus. We enjoyed it everyday we were there. Vineyards right next door :) And last, but definitely not least.. the sweetest people running and working this B&B. We hope to be able to make it back next summer. By far my favorite vacation.

Awesome B&B!!

My wife and I and our three children stayed at Briar Patch in the "Chic Suite" for a few weeks when we were moving to the DC area. What a wonderful experience this was!! The staff was absolutely fantastic and so friendly. The newly constructed Chic suite had a wonderful kitchen, large bathroom with an amazing custom shower and the bedroom was spacious and complete with beautiful re-purposed wood and custom touches. The beautiful country views on the 40+ acre property with rolling hills and plenty of space makes staying at Briar Patch this such a relaxing, enjoyable get-away. We HIGHLY recommend Briar Patch and will definitely stay there again the next time we are in the area!

Wonderful B&B

My husband and I were married 5 years ago in Middleburg, VA. We found a deal online for the Briar Patch Inn B & B so decided to give it a try. It was both of our first B&Bs so we weren't sure what to expect. We rented the Rose and Sunflower room so that we could have private use of their joint bathroom. We didn't realize that those rooms are kind of secluded so it was like staying in our own private suite - which was fantastic. It was too cold to use the pool or hot tub but the grounds looked really peaceful. The breakfasts were so yummy and I was very impressed that they had gluten free choices for those with allergies. There selection was fabulous as well. Everything about that weekend was just so wonderful. I would definitely recommend staying here if planning on staying anywhere in the Middleburg area.

Great Wedding and Anniversary!

My husband and I got married at Briar Patch a year ago! We loved it so much, and we love their staff! The wedding was gorgeous and perfect, and we returned for out one year anniversary! The staff was awesome as usual, the historic home and grounds breathtaking! The breakfasts were so tasty! We swam, drank champagne, used the hot tub, walked the grounds, read the history of the civil war there (a battle happened right on the grounds) and reminisced about our wedding. We found the PERFECT place to escape to!

Lovely B&B

This was my hubby and I's trip away from our newborn baby. We wanted to go somewhere and just relax. Brair Patch was so cute and cozy! The building is very old and has a lot of history that we enjoyed learning about. The sitting room was a great place we could relax in while sipping hot chocolate (or wine!). We were able to use the hot tub even in the cold weather! The food was delicious! My husband is a Chef... and he really enjoyed it too! The hospitality is just great! Everyone we met was super friendly and helpful. They even gave us recommendations for different wineries and restaurants. Our room was the Hyacinth Room. The floor is a bit creaky but it is Historical! The decor was nice and the bed was comfy. We even had a little fireplace! We would highly recommend them!! We hope to be back there soon. Thanks again!

Best B&B ever!!

We've never been to a more accommodating and generous place! We were married here a year ago and invited back for a complementary stay to celebrate our 1st anniversary. Beautiful location surrounded by beautiful country and great day trip options. Our wedding was spectacular with complete use of the facilities. Our guests loved each room, enjoyed the staff, pool, hot tub, horses, porches, EVERYTHING! The best thing they've given us are our memories. We love this place because we felt totally at home and cared for. Dan and his staff have great energy and make everyone feel like their part of the family. Can't wait to go back!

Best meeting we have had in years!!!

The Briar Patch delivered accommodations that exceeded our expectations at our last company meeting. We were able to hold a very productive meeting as well as escape during breaks to enjoy spectacular meals! There were plenty of extracurricular activities to do in the surrounding area that were great for teambuilding. I definitely recommend this Bed & Breakfast for any company retreats or meetings!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the very homey inn. The rooms are very comfortable, if a little noisy with the window unit a/c. Innkeepers made us feel very welcome and at home. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and relaxing w/ a glass of wine on the expansive front porch.
