On a recent car trip we stopped at the Flint Hill Public House Restaurant and Inn. What a treat. The area is beautiful, the Inn lovely, the restaurant outstanding and reasonably priced, and the staff exceedingly friendly. Innkeeper John Gruber, and server Yvette could not have been more welcoming. The Inn, although colonial on the outside ,is modern, and very appealing on the inside. Too bad we only had one day to appreciate our " priced right" home away from home. The inn is in Flint hill, VA., 45 minutes from Washington D.C. Phone 540 675 1700. You can look it up on the internet.
- 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
