While Middleburg is only 50 miles from DC, it seems like a world away. It was perfect for our getaway overnight to get a break from the DC frenzy. We picked the Red Fox Inn based on it's reputation with friends and I'm glad we did. The Inn was built in 1728 and has been very well restored and maintained. The original beams, brick, and mortar on the walls puts you in the middle of a colonial-era feeling. The staff was welcoming and made us feel like they were happy to help us. They provided information on things to see in the area and let us settle in. We decided to eat at the Inn as well, to avoid driving in unfamiliar territory, and we were happy with the choice. The menu is varied and draws on local ingredients. The menu isn't terribly vegetarian-friendly, but we made creative use of what was there and the chef was accommodating. We slept soundly on the comfortable bed, and enjoyed the coffee service in our room the next morning. The bathroom was amazingly modern for such an old inn.
