We stayed three nights in this beautifully restored country inn in the tiny village of Paris, Virginia, and found it to be an ideal getaway destination for us, as it is close to wineries, horse farms, and the Shenandoah National Park. Our room on the third floor of the main building was filled with antiques and had wonderful amenities, including... More

Love the school house rooms. Very relaxing sitting on the porch, drinking wine, and enjoying the great views. We always do breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. The pork was unreal last time we were there. Excellent! We are looking forward to our next visit.

We went to The Ashby Inn for our Anniversary. The service was terrible. It was twenty minutes after being seated until we had a waiter to our table. Ordered a cocktail and another thirty minutes until we got our drink we ordered. Wine we ordered with our dinner came before our cocktail. Once we ordered all the food came all... More

We stopped by the restaurant on our way to the Goodstone Inn in MIddleburg last sunday for brunch and i am glad that we did. The lunch was FABULOUS!! I had the english pea soup and the eggs benedict which were both exceptional but my boyfriend had the braised rabbit pasta and a mix green/ricotta salata salad which were both... More

We last visited the Ashby this past October and found it to be a delightful dining experience. The inn was beautifully adorned in colorful Autumn harvest decorations and when we arrived the manager came out to our car to personally greet us and walked us in to our table. She checked back at every course during our meal to ensure... More

We were two couples and the only ones at the Inn this time. The room was incredibly comfortable on a very cold day and there was a spacious fireplace all set up to go. I liked the furnishings, which were colonial, nice wide plank floors, comfortable bed. We went to sleep as the embers of the fire glowed nearby and... More

Every year my husband and I select a special place for our Holiday Getaway. This year it was the Ashby Inn in Paris, Va. We stayed in the Adams Room in the school house (wonderful!) and dined selecting the chef's tasting menu (unbelievably special). Service throughout the inn and restaurant was impeccable, meeting our every needs and then some. The... More

This inn was recommended to us by friends who have frequented this B&B for several years. We stayed in the School House (Lafayette Room) and I think that the room is just stunning and very comfortable. The views from the back porch over the garden (the restaurant team was harvesting for dinner!) and the fields beyond were beautiful, even with... More

We chose The Ashby Inn over its nearby competition for an All Hallows Eve night. The Inn is well decorated inside and out for Autumn Harvest, including some of the most colorful and unique gourds we've seen. For appetizers my wife chose the confit of duck and I the smoked king salmon, Both were exquisitely presented and paired with ideal... More

The Ashby Inn is one of our favorite Virginia Inns and we have stayed there several times over the past few years. Although the rooms in the Schoolhouse are more spacious, we prefer the décor and convenience of staying in the Main House. The décor is colonial, but the beds and the chairs in the rooms are quite comfortable. The... More
