We spent the weekend of March 23 - 24th at the Inn. We were treated royally from the time we arrived until we left. The Manager John & staff greeted us warmly, quickly got us into our suite (the Washington suite overlooking the patio & grounds in the rear) and directed us to sights in the area for an afternoon visit. Before we left for afternoon sightseeing they offered us chocolate brownies with peanut butter and oreos baked in....yummy.
Dinner at the Inn was wonderful (steak and breaded scallops for me and crabcakes for the Mrs.) Everything was delicious, well presented and cooked to our wishes. The best part was dessert. We sampled a little of 4 different wonderful tastes - the chocolate/chocolate one is to die for.
On Sunday morning we hosted relatives with one teenager and a 10 year old for brunch. Chef Marvin greeted us and told us he would cook anything he had in the kitchen - just to our tastes. We had omelettes, pancakes, french toast, scrambled eggs, and eggs over easy - just as we requested. No one rushed us although we visited for some time after our meal.
Our stay was terrific from start to finish. Clean, modern conveniences, quiet country side, friendly staff, and wonderful food - all at reasonable prices. We'll be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than 100 years of history..Perched on a hill above the namesake village it overlooks, Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn is a large white house that is hard to miss. The building is a former schoolhouse that has been a fixture in the area for more than 100 years. In the early 1900s, a one-room schoolhouse was moved from the premises to make room for a new school called the Flint Hill School. Built in 1906, the new school was instrumental in educating Rappahannock County children until 1960, when the property was sold and became a private residence. In 1986, the schoolhouse/residence was sold and renovated and opened as The School House Restaurant. In 1992, the restaurant operation was leased as The Flint Hill Public House until it closed in 2008. In June 2011, new owners purchased the property and undertook an extensive renovation and redesign, hiring noted Washington, DC, architect Ernesto Santalla. The complete renovation took the building down to the bare walls and included moving an interior stairwell to the outside to accommodate four luxury suites on the expansive second floor. The new Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn opened in early 2012 – ready for another 100 years as a local landmark and gathering place. CLOSED MONDAY-WEDNESDAY. ... more less
