Every now and then, to perserve my sanity, I leave the Washington, DC area for the Shenanadoah Valley. I enjoy participating in religious services at Holy Cross Abbey in Berryville, VA and whenever I can I stay at the Battletown Inn right in the heart of Berryville. This is a very pleasant place that is owned and operated by two great people who do all they can to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are somewhat rustic (these are old, historic buildings) but very comfortable and functional. The restaurant serves very good food at reasonable prices. The upstairs bar is a fun place for a few drinks and staffed by a very cordial and efficient bartender. Berryville is a very small town - and although it is only about 75 miles from Washington, DC it has that Mayberry feel to it. It is extremely quiet and tranquil - not much nightlife here. The locals are extremely friendly and helpful. You are close to Winchester and plenty of wineries so Berryville is a good springboard to visit other places in the area. I give the Battletown Inn my highest endorsement and recommendation - the room rates are moderate and the staff terrific - so head out one weekend for a most enjoyable getaway.
