“A Real Deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We loved our stay at Flint Hill Public House. A bit leary before our arrival as everything else in the area was at least three times more expensive. We were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful historic inn in a scenic setting. In addition to the four rooms upstairs, there is a lovely restaurant and a very nice small bar. The decor is sleek and modern, and there is a large outdoor deck to enjoy during warmer months. Breakfast can be ordered by those staying at the inn. Our steak, eggs, and home fries were excellent. The staff really goes all out to make their guests feel welcome; we enjoyed our stay so much that we plan to return again soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sperryville suite and can highly recommend it

Wow! Thanks for the feedback. Chef Marvin loves personalizing breakfast because it gives him a chance to interact more with the guests. Please come back soon!

We have been frequent customers of this wonderful establishment and had many great meals there. We had often wanted to stay the night and last weekend my husband surprised me with a suite . Evette helped my husband select a great bottle of wine and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our suite. If you haven't tried the restaurant you are missing a great meal. It's very relaxed , you can dress up or dress down, entertain your guests there with no worries of bad service or meals. Or have a great date night with that special person.
I would give it more than an excellent rating!!!!

We popped in on MLK day and learned they offerred two for one pulled pork BBQ, asparagus and mushroom quiche and martinis specials! All presented in a comfortable and classy bar. The outdoor area in back looked to be a great place for a party or wedding in warmer days. Attentive staff, knowledgeable about the area, an agrotourism county. They also spotlight local vineyards and prepare seasonal, local foods. Nice!

Girlfriend and I stayed here January 13, 2013. We reserved the Washington Suite. Be advised this inn is furnished and decorated in an attractive, contemporary fashion - nothing "Ye Olde" about it. The Washington Suite is spacious, with windows looking out on the garden and the Blue Ridge mountains. The sitting room has a large couch & chair, the king bed was very comfortable with soft pillows and nice thick quilt. The TV and internet access were great.

We ate dinner downstairs in the restaurant - both of us chose steak that was cooked perfectly and accompanied by a nice red chambourcin from a local vineyard. Because we needed to depart in the morning before the 11:00 lunch time, the chef graciously accommodated us by preparing and serving us an early breakfast that was again delicious.

We highly recommend staying and dining here, and plan to do so again in the future.

We had an outstanding dinner on New Years Eve. Every course including the lobster was fantastic. The service was also great. Everything was perfect. We had dinner earlier in the year at Thanksgiving and were equally impressed.

We went out and stayed for a night so we could visit wineries and antique stores. The Flint Hill Public House provided us the perfect place to call home for the trip as we explored the area with the recommendations of the friendly staff. Definitely check out nearby Sperryville where the Copper Fox distillery was memorable and educational. We brought our dog, Tanner, with us and the staff made his stay special by leaving him treats and letting him run around the large backyard. The best part by far was the food prepared by the chef, Marvin, who personally came out to our table to check on our dinner and breakfast. He mastered the balance between sizable portions and delicious taste on everything from fried pickles to catfish to french toast. We'll definitely be back to stay again.

Had the opportunity to head out to VA for wine tasting and gallery hopping last week. Public House was such a wonderful experience. Being a dog owner, who doesn't like to board, it's difficult to find B&Bs who can accommodate dogs. Not only was the staff super inviting they had a doggie towel (for snowy paws) and some treats waiting for us in the room when we arrived. Also, the back property is perfect for morning runs with the pup.

The B&B itself is a great mix of historic VA and modern style. The rooms are well designed with the perfect amount of space for a long weekend. And my favorite touch was the swiveling flat screen TV for couch and/or bed viewing! The staff couldn't have been more friendly, Millicent took great care of us creating a map of must dos in the area.

The absolute best feature of Public House is the restaurant. Marvin, the Executive Chef, who came out personally to say hello and to check on our table creates a phenomenal menu (try the crab cakes) and the french toast for breakfast was (no joke) the best french toast I've ever had.

All in all a fantastic winter experience and we can't wait to go back this spring!

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
