My wife and I enjoyed a quiet two night stay at the Blackthorne Inn. We went to see the fall foliage. On entering our spacious, attractive, and comfortable room we found a warm gas fire glowing in a Franklin style stove complete with ceramic logs. A bottle of wine along with a nice cheese and fruit plate were waiting for us in a compact refrigerator. That evening we had a delicious dinner in the main dining room overlooking a beautiful pond accented by a fountain. Behind us, and connected to the room we sat in, was the original stone house owned by George Washington. It offered a beautiful bar and three more smaller, private dining rooms. Each room appeared as though you had stepped back in time 250 years ago. Several fireplaces gave a natural warmth and cozy feeling throughout the house. My wife enjoyed large scallops and shrimp over pasta. I had a tasty steak. The next night we ate in the Pub and I enjoyed the Cottage Pie, the Inn's version of a Shepard's pie. My wife had a Greek dish with mutton and cheese. I ate a sample and it was excellent. We sat next to a warm fire in the rough stone fireplace. Each morning we had breakfast back in the Pub. It was served quickly, hot, and very delicious. Upstairs is a second pub for imbibing, and out back is a large attractive patio. We walked the grounds both morning and took in wonderful views of the Blue Ridge foothills, meadows, pastures, and woods. We also saw deer and a variety of birds. Maybe you have experienced similar places, but what will make a stay at Blackthorne Inn exceed your expectations is the personal warmth of the owners and their staff. Four daughters and a son along with their mother and father came over from Ireland 27 years ago. Their hospitality is genuine and they make you feel comfortable in their company and care. I highly recommend Blackthorne Inn at Upperville, VA.
