This is one of our favorite places to go. It is a fantastic place to stay and definitely a step or two above. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The staff is always helpful and polite. The swimming pool and garden areas are beautiful and a great place for pictures.

We made reservations for the night as a package to go to a performance at the Barter Theatre. We had a lovely dinner at Sisters Restaurant and then went to see a performance. We were greeted warmly and our room was very large and spacious. The bathroom was so very nice! The next morning I did the Virginia Creeper Trail;... More

When planning to meet another couple for the weekend we decided on Abingdon. I had never heard of The Martha but was quite intrigued by it on the website. We absolutely LOVED it. It is historical, fabulously decorated, and the staff went above and beyond by make us dinner reservations in town. We sat one afternoon on the veranda and... More

Really enjoyed The Martha and all its history. I feels just like a really big home (which is what it is) and there is no hotel feel to it which brings comfort. Great pool and Jacuzzi. The breakfast was a little disappointing as to what we read we expected a full complimentary buffet breakfast. Everyone should stay here at least... More

Staff very warm and welcoming. Room beautifully furnished, good lighting, comfortable bed, lush towels. Dinner and breakfast, more than ample, nicely presented, fair prices, servers genuinely friendly. Only disappointment was the atmosphere in the dining room not as elegant as it was years ago. No table cloth, a bit noisy, TV at the front. Port served in the library a... More

As soon as you walk up the steps to the broad "veranda" with its wicker furniture and ceiling fans, you are taken back in time at this historic inn. The entrance and lobby with the beautiful staircase, exquisite chandeliers, and lovely furniture is quite elegant. That's the good news; the bad news is that, like so many historic hotels, the...

What a gorgeous spot! From the exterior with its broad porches and brick facade to the grounds with pools and waterfalls, tennis courts and a putt putt course (coming soon). The hotel began as a home and then became a girls' college. In the 1930's it became a hotel. It is beautifully appointed, filled with antiques and memorabilia of its... More

This was our 4th stay at the Martha on our way down to Georgia. This hotel doesn't disappoint. The hotel is so unique which is why I like it. At the end of a long day, we settled down with our laptops (free wireless) in the gorgeous library with a glass of Port. The outside heated hot pool is small... More

We stayed two nights in the Martha Washington Inn for a family wedding. The staff was very attentive, the Inn exceeded our expectations and the overall stay could not have been more perfect! Not only would I recommend it for a wedding but a quick getaway, even if you are only able to enjoy it for one night. Abingdon is... More
