My wife and I recently stayed here for a quick weekend getaway to hike Old Rag Mountain and chill out in Shenandoah. From start to finish, this place was a class act. It reminded me of the Chanric Inn in Napa Valley to tell you the truth. Unlike most inns in the area, Flint Hill was renovated in modern decor yet retained many of the classic elements of the original building.
The staff was warm and efficient. The rooms were well done indeed - clean and comfortable. The bed was turned out with high quality linens and was super comfy. The soundproofing is excellent...despite two rather large dining rooms downstairs, we didn't hear a peep.
All told, it was a great experience and we'd go back in a heartbeat. You won't be disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than 100 years of history..Perched on a hill above the namesake village it overlooks, Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn is a large white house that is hard to miss. The building is a former schoolhouse that has been a fixture in the area for more than 100 years. In the early 1900s, a one-room schoolhouse was moved from the premises to make room for a new school called the Flint Hill School. Built in 1906, the new school was instrumental in educating Rappahannock County children until 1960, when the property was sold and became a private residence. In 1986, the schoolhouse/residence was sold and renovated and opened as The School House Restaurant. In 1992, the restaurant operation was leased as The Flint Hill Public House until it closed in 2008. In June 2011, new owners purchased the property and undertook an extensive renovation and redesign, hiring noted Washington, DC, architect Ernesto Santalla. The complete renovation took the building down to the bare walls and included moving an interior stairwell to the outside to accommodate four luxury suites on the expansive second floor. The new Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn opened in early 2012 – ready for another 100 years as a local landmark and gathering place. ... more less
