“Plus' and Minus'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Went here with friends on a Living Social coupon. Both our rooms were "cottages" consisting of 1 building with several rooms. Lovely and friendly person at the check-in-desk (Donna) who couldn't have been more helpful. Drove up the lane to our rooms. Room was quite spacious with a king size bed with lovely linens. The room really was OK for 2 nights but could use some TLC in terms of maintenance...2x's our toilet wouldn't flush and my husband had to take the cover off and fix it. He found the chain was attached by a paperclip. Our biggest angst was the weather had turned warmer and there were stink bugs EVERYWHERE..both alive and dead on the windowsills. We had to put shoes on if we got up during the night as we could hear our shoes crunching stinkbugs under our feet. One morning there was a stink bug in the shower with me. We did receive a fruit tray and bottle of wine but on the 2nd day which really didn't give us much time to eat it. Was surprised that the wine was from South Africa as opposed to a local VA wine. NO internet service in the room. Breakfasts were VERY good with 4 choices and served by George, a most helpful and likeable guy and were included in the price.

Room Tip: Don't go in "stinkbug season"... Ask for a room with a fireplace.

We stayed in one of the cabins for Valentines weekend and had a great time. The cabins are a high end version of rustic, in that ours had a hot tub and a great stone fireplace, the inn features a wonderful restaurant and pub, and you are only 20 minutes or so from Middleburg, VA.

The views from the cabin are beautiful and we plan to go back in the spring or summer when we can really enjoy the outdoors and take full advantage of hiking at Sky Meadows Park, which is minutes away. The staff was very friendly, the bed was comfortable and the inn provided plenty of wood for the fireplace. It seemed like the perfect example of a well run, small, local business. The restaurant is very well regarded in the local area, so it is worth visiting even if you are not staying there. The pub had a cool, stone-walled, old world look that made it very cozy.

Room Tip: If you think you might use the fireplace all night, go ahead and purchase some extra wood. The inn...

The Blackthorne Inn in Upperville, Virginia, is a wonderful getaway destination. The 18th century inn sits on 45 wooded acres with a pond and has rooms in the main house as well as a number of cabins. We were there for a two-night stay and chose a cabin. Our private and quiet cabin was spacious and featured a very comfortable king-sized bed, double jetted tub, large comfortable couch in front of a working fireplace, and a large bathroom, as well as a refrigerator and accompanying sink. The main house has a restaurant and a pub which has its own, more informal, menu but serves from the restaurant menu as well. We found the pub very comfortable and the food was consistently good. For an appetizer we had Irish nachos, a very large dish of home-made chips and melted cheese, and then for entrees home-made chicken pot pie, which was loaded with chicken and came with a large green salad, and fish and chips. The second night we had a salmon salad and an ahi tuna salad as appetizers which were so large that we did not need to order entrees. Breakfasts are included and feature real Irish sausages, salmon omelettes, home fries, fruit, etc. Tne food was among the best pub food we have ever had with very geneorus portions.

In summary, the Blacklhorne Inn is a very pleasant place to stay with comfortable rooms, excellent food, and a very friendly and warm staff.

Room Tip: The cabins, while more expensive, are well worth the price for the space and comfort they offer as w...

We stopped by and tried Dinner here, with our son & daughter, had a wonderful evening, the food was great, you must try the Nachos, everything was fresh, and the atmosphere was so calming and nice. This is a lovely Inn located in the Equestrian Country, the grounds are really beautiful

We just got back from the Blackthorne Inn and Restaurant for a little romantic couples getaway. We stayed in the Wicklow (cabin #4) which contained a wood burning fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, and a very high queen bed. We had a great time, the staff was very friendly and on two occasions gave our car a jump start due to us having some battery problems. We ate at the restaurant and very much enjoyed our meals.

I didn't give the Inn 5 stars for a few reasons, 1) it really is RUSTIC....cozy but nothing like a plush hotel 2) a few little things like my breakfast grapes not being washed (could still see the pesticide/dirt), the cabin bed felt a little small and needed a new mattress, and there really are little stink bugs here and there inside the cabin. I imagine it's impossible to keep them out. Oh, and the shower curtain had mildew and should be replaced.

Overall, the staff was charming and helpful, tons of wood burning fireplaces around the property provided warm ambiance, and the staff is helpful and happy to help wherever needed.

Took my husband there for a supervise getaway for his 30th birthday. We loved the location, the room was cozy and super romantic with a large fireplace, jacuzzi and a huge bed. Had a nice country feel to it. Breakfast in the morning included was a nice touch. We couldn't have picked a better place to get away from DC for the night. Would definitely recommend!

The setting is beautiful, but the accomodations were average. The room was very hot and I couldn't regulate the gas stove. The bed was like a woeden slab, not comfortable at all. Kudos to the restaurant and for the great breakfast.
