“We're definitely returning to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

Wow. Where do I begin? The incredible hospitality and friendly faces when we first walked in? The exquisite food? The very attentive service? The beautiful grounds? The very romantic room we chose?
We just want to thank Carissa, Donna, Bobbie and the rest of the staff for an incredible weekend. We felt so at home. And, our last night there in the Bullskin Tavern was fun chatting, laughing and exchanging stories with Carissa and a few of the other guests. It made for a very memorable weekend.
We really enjoyed the Winter Cottage, and having an IPad 2 in every room is simply brilliant! Next time, we may just bring our "furry" kid!
If you're looking for a relaxing and fun getaway, Hillbrook is a no-brainer! I highly recommend this gem of an inn.

We can’t wait until your next visit as well! It was wonderful to share Hillbrook with you both and personally I enjoyed my evening in the Tavern as well. It is always a wonderful night when you meet new people, enjoy great conversation and get to relax.

The winter cottage is a great room, and I love the painting just for the fact that it matches the tapestry on the window. In addition, on Sunday after everyone left we saw the first gosling on the property. It was a great weekend that ended on a great note. Thank you for being a part of that great weekend. We look forward to seeing you in the future. We deeply appreciate all your feedback and hope you have a wonderful beginning to a great summer! ~ Sincerely, Carissa Zanella

My husband and I loved our overnight stay at Hillbrook Inn. (Not sure if links are allowed, but I blogged about it here: http://dishragdiaries.com/uncategorized/virginia-is-for-lovers-and-so-is-west-virginia/)

We stayed in the Bamford Suite, and we loved everything about it: the decor, the comfy, bed, the fireplace... The grounds are gorgeous, as is the house. We enjoyed the library and the tavern room. The service was impeccable, and everyone seemed so eager to please.

We ate dinner and breakfast there, as well as enjoying some cocktails and sweet treats, and everything was delicious and satisfying. It is very important to me to support small businesses that source locally, and the Inn certainly fits that bill.

We loved the history of the house, and Charles Town itself, and had a great time at the nearby Hollywood Casino.

We will definitely return.

It was truly an honor to have you both stay at the Hillbrook Inn. We enjoyed reading your blog and appreciate the time you took to write about your stay and experience. This beautiful place is truly dear to each of us that work here, and we are blessed to be able to share it with so many wonderful people.
Thank you for noticing all the details and my staff. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the Bamford Suite; it is one of my favorite rooms, the sumptuous food prepared by both our Executive Chef and Breakfast Chef and even the breakfast cocktail!
Each aspect of Hillbrook is important to us and we create this atmosphere in hopes that each of our guests is able to take part in everything we offer. Our staff works so hard to make it comfortable for guests and I will be sure to share your review and blog with each of them. You are a beautiful writer and I look forward to visiting your blog again soon. We also look forward to visiting again with the both of you in the future and hope that you enjoy your summer! ~ Sincerely, Carissa Zanella

Lovely quiet setting, excellent service and extremely well-appointed and comfortable rooms. Generous and very tasty breakfast. Lots of well considered little touches add to the comfort and appeal, including luxurious robes and slippers, little snacks in the room, interesting antiques and art, cozy fires. A gracious, old-school Inn without stuffiness or pretention. The place to stay near Charles Town!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our quiet setting. Our goal is to create an atmosphere where guests can escape the hectic lives we all lead sometimes. It is wonderful to see guests enjoying the warm fires, talking amongst themselves or meeting new friends. I am also glad to hear that you enjoyed our plush robes in the rooms, the home-made treats and more. We do try to create an atmosphere that is “sophisticated yet unpretentious. Elegant and eclectic!” So, thank you for noticing, it is deeply appreciated. ~ Sincerely, Carissa Zanella

We were looking for a place to get the heck out of Dodge one weekend and came across this bed and breakfast. We never heard of it but took the chance because they also were dog friendly. We were very pleased with our stay and found several things to do in the area. We wish it were warmer to walk around more with our dog but it was also a nice stay indoors in the lounge, dining room (good food!!), and in our room. Our room square footage is comparable to other places but felt much bigger with the high ceilings. The fireplace, hot tub, and a little nook created for a our dog's food and water bowls made it really cozy. We would definitely go back. And I would recommend this place for a local destination wedding because the site is pretty and you can rent out the whole place (10 bedrooms) for just your party. And the casino is just 10 minutes away, if you like to do that.

My husband and I stumbled upon The Hillbrook Inn two years ago for our anniversary. We have been back now 5 times to celebrate birthdays and to just relax and regroup. Each time we stay, we have a wonderful meal, are greeted by the most hospitable staff, and enjoy five-star accomidations. This past visit, my husband and I decided to have a driver to tour the local vineyards and Carissa was more than happy to set our trip up for us,as well as recommend her favorites! Our dinners are always fantastic and Bobby has always been a pleasure. Not only do we enjoy her service, but also catching up on our families and life in general. I can say one thing with great confidence, You will not be disappointed if you choose a nice leisurely vacation to the Hillbrook Inn.
