My husband and I booked the Red Fox Inn for our long weekend in Virginia. Our room was The Huntland, which is on the 2nd floor in the Stray Fox building, across the parking lot from the main building. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and art galleries, and just a short drive to wineries. At check in we were told that complimentary breakfast is served from 8 - 10:30 in the tavern, and breakfast is delicious! We both had eggs benedict our first morning. Unfortunately we were not told that the breakfast hours change on Sunday, and brunch starts at 10 am, which is not complimentary. However, the staff overheard us discussing that we hadn't realized breakfast hours changed on Sunday, or we would have risen earlier for the complimentary breakfast, so they brought us the breakfast menus anyway. They didn't have to do that, but it was an extra nice touch, and we really appreciated it!
We had friends join us for dinner later that evening in the Tavern for dinner, and the waiter was very attentive, and offered up menus suggestions. The food was outstanding. I think those were some of the best crab cakes I've had. My husband had rack of lamb, and someone at our table had the duck. Generous plates of food that left everyone satisfied.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and dining experience at this location and would definitely return.
