First time visit

This was our first stay but hope it will not be the last. Everything about our stay was wonderful from the warm welcome to relaxing with a glass of wine and snacks on the sun porch to the comfortable bed and room for a wonderful night's sleep.

A GREAT stay in a BEAUTIFUL home!

5 on July 31, 2016

My wife and I just got back from a great stay at this historic Inn. The home was beautiful with impeccable architectural details throughout and the level of attention by Joyce and Anna was fantastic! We arrived in the mid-afternoon to find our tray of cheese, crackers and fruit waiting for us near the complementary wine, port, sherry and sodas. We enjoyed these goodies in one of the sun rooms before walking along the beautiful grounds and our quick visit to the newly-built ballroom (and beautiful) ballroom a few hundred yards behind the home. We loved being able to explore the nearby historic towns (Warrenton and Culpepper) during the day and for dinner. The following morning, we had a quick walk outside before our sumptuous breakfast of juice, fruit, GREAT french toast, cereal and pastries. I highly recommend this Inn for a beautiful weekend getaway!! - Ignacio Lulli

My wife and I booked Blackhorse Inn for our honeymoon night. The hospitality is unmatched. The room (Great Expectations Suite) was nothing less than wonderful. Complimentary wines, port, sherry, and soft drinks. Plate of meats and cheeses, as well as a plethora of other goodies. The house is wonderfully decorated and displays a level of class that we had not experienced in a B&B to that date. The grounds are breathtaking with rolling hills, willow trees, horses and water features. If you are considering this B&B, book it now.

The rooms were exactly as quaint as shown on the website. The inn's commitment to customer service shone when she provided a complimentary upgrade due to low occupancy. She provided the special touches that make these inns special: complimentary wine upon arrival, a cheese tray, and specially made breakfast. She even prepared "to-go" breakfast for my wife who had to leave early for business. It was a real treat to get to know this charming part of Virginia a bit better.


Great B&B!!

Wonderfully peaceful place! And the breakfast was great. Kudos to the owner and staff!


Relaxing Get Awary at Black Horse Inn

4.2 on May 03, 2011

I used a BedandBreakfast gift card for a relaxing weekend at the Black Horse Inn. I live in DC and even with a little bit of rush hour traffic the drive only took about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous! We even drove by the famous Gold Cup race horse track on the way to the inn. We arrived a bit later in the evening and the evening staff was very accomodating and friendly. Around dusk both nights we sat in the sun room and nibbled on cheese, crackers, and wine all complimentary from the Inn and set up for us in the sun room. Had two faboulous dinners, Friday and night at Girasole Italian Restaurant and Saturday night at Poplar Springs...both absolutely delish and even better than many DC restaurants on the top 100 list. Breakfast consisted of omlets and french toast with fruit and sausage and homemade orange juice. Each evening we would return to the Inn and chat with other guests or sit by ourselves by the fire and enjoy port and cookies provided by the inn. The rooms were fantastic, clean, and spacious. One day wee went on a horseback ride (when in rome) and it was awesome! Sunday we hit up some wineries to end our perfect weekend. I would definitely go back to the black horse inn. It is very romantic and would be a perfect setting for a wedding due to the friendly staff and impecable and well manicured grounds. A must see!!!! Thanks again and we'll be back soon!
