Stunning scenery. Rustic-luxuriouscomfortable cabins. 250 years of history. Excellent gourmet food in the fine-dining restaurant upstairs, but my taste is more for the pub fare in the great Irish pub below. Be sure to have a pint of Guinness - they actualy know how to pour a proper one. As it is in Ireland, the greatest part is the people... More

We went to the Blackthorne after purchasing a 2 day getaway on livingsocial.com. After reading the reviews on here we were a bit worried but we were able to dash those worries aside upon arrival. We stayed in the Tipperary cabin and loved it. We stayed during the week so we had no problems getting a reservation. They had our... More

My wife and I stayed at Blackthorne last month for a second honeymoon trip. We arrived and were stunned by the location. The main restaurant was set above rolling hills and a beautiful pond with a gazebo set in the middle, that was perfect for a trip like ours. Our cabin was beautiful, quaint, and rustic. The bed was extremely... More

First of all, this review is specific to the cabins. (My husband and I had hoped to sample dinner fare at the restaurant, but a major power outage that didn't affect our cabin nixed that option.) While there were some interesting elements to our cabin, like a fantastically large stone hearth and fireplace, our sense of the place was "short... More

Gorgeous location and the food is good but the cabins are in dire need of a handyman and an exterminator! Not worth the money!!

"rustic" and badly maintained is not the same thing! Bed was big but sheets and bedding old and creepy=not clean. AC was a small window unit that was turned off on our arrival a 90+ degree day... bathroom was beyond horrible! It was tiny, shower is leaking, dirty showercurtain no shelf or any kind of place to put shampoo etc.... More

Was there for my birthday with my husband and stayed in the Wexford Cottage. Very quaint, cozy, charming and quiet. It was a cute, rustic log cabin. Very clean, very comfortable bed with nice bedding. Gorgeous stone fireplace in the cabin, but didn't use it since it is summertime :-) I thought it was well maintained considering it is a... More

Stayed here while visiting family in Middleburg. It looks as though they have fixed the place up quite a bit as I did not see any of the negatives that other reviewers mentioned. While a little bit more than a usual hotel, the excellent food at the restaurant/pub and the history of the property (George Washington's) more than made up... More

Luckily we stayed only one night. We were so disappointed that for slightly more money we could have stayed at the Ashby Inn--a wonderful place nearby. We thought we'd try something new and closer to our event venue but were remiss to not check reviews. We paid $200 for a room on a Monday night. Outrageous for the accomodations' condition.... More
