A wonderful place to go and unwind. It is full of history and stories and modern day innkeepers and staff who make you feel that Welbourne belongs to all who visit.
The breakfast is delicious and keeps on coming, the women who staff the kitchen are lovely.
You won't want to miss the cocktail hour on the veranda, as this is when you hear the interesting stories of the guests and innkeepers and get to know the dogs by name.
I wouldn't say you're going to a bed and breakfast, I'd say you're going for the Welbourne experience.

I feel nourished and renewed after a wonderful weekend at Welbourne. The completely authentic and sincere innkeepers and staff made a wonderful home into a wonderful experience. The homes faded elegance is endearing and comfortable, its easy to feel as if you "belong"here. I'd read many reviews before I decided on Welbourne for a planned girls weekend/reunion and you always worry about others' experiences and opionions being on par with your own...well, let me tell you they were spot on, you WILL feel as if you are family, there are no pretentions here, only genuine hospitality, (I've traveled and lived many places and genuine hospitality is rare these days). The breakfast was completely worthy of all the raving reviews as was the cocktail hour complete with great conversation and a warming fire. I went with a group of friends from HS that hasnt been able to get together for a few years, we had the best time staying up late catching up well past midnight ,having our own extended cocktail hour in our pjs! Probably the most fun for my group was discovering all the nooks and crannies in the home, at every turn there is something else wonderfully fascinating to explore!! My advice, you must go!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are Virginians and know the area very well, but only found Welbourne about a year ago. Since then, we have stayed seven times. It is a complete break from the tensions of Washington, a trip back in time to a slower pace, a beautiful house without TV, without radio, without Internet, but with the pleasures of good company. Life lived amidst a vast collection of Victoriana. The rooms are large and comfortable. It is a bit shabby around the edges, because it is a house, lived in, not a fancy resort. The nicest part of all is cocktails with the family (Nat, Sherry, Josh and Amanda) and neighbors every evening, pleasant conversation that can stretch for three hours (but who's counting the time). Another great point is the immense and perfect breakfast prepared each day by the cook Anne and her daughter Joyce. Afterwards, walking in the fields with 95 horses! Go there, you will love it.

I have visited Middleburg and Welbourne before, but had never spent a night in the beautiful house. My boyfriend and I decided to attend the Middleburg Christmas Parade and Hunt Review the first weekend in December and spent two lovely nights at Welbourne. Driving down the gravel road and turning into the main entrance, you feel as if you are stepping back in time. Drive up slow, as you are usually gleefully greeted by the many resident dogs!

Only about an hour from DC, you feel completely transported to a different era at Welbourne. A scrumptious sit down Southern breakfast is served at 8:30. Loved the fried tomatoes! And cocktails are held in the parlor at 7:00. Sipping bourbon next to the fire while the dogs slept at our feet…I didn’t want to leave for the dinner reservations we had made in town!

Our room was spacious and comfortable with our own fireplace that we eagerly lit each night. It made the retreat all the more romantic. Along with attending the parade in town, we also strolled the grounds and visited the retired horses who reside at Welbourne.

Nat and Sherry are lovely hosts and you always feel welcomed into their home. Be sure to engage Nat in conversation at cocktail hour to hear the fascinating history of the house!
Welbourne is a unique place to stay. If you need all the modern conveniences and television this may not be the place for you. But for history buffs, animal lovers, and for a true taste of Southern hospitality…Welbourne is the place for you.

We’ve been traveling to the Middleburg area for 20+ years and finally found this B&B gem with gracious Southern hospitality and genuine historical charm. All the rooms are large and feel more like luxury suites. Nothing is “updated” – it is the original eight generation family home. The early morning silence is only broken by one of the hounds “singing.” Excellent, high quality Southern breakfast (eggs, grits, bacon, fried tomatoes, biscuits) with beautiful china and silver. The dogs usually come bouncing in with Sherry, who takes great interest in every guest. She also lights the candles. You don’t even miss television when you can engage Nat in a conversation at cocktail hour. (Be sure to tell him New York City and New Orleans are your favorite places). And if you need to arrive late (after 8pm), Joshua and Amanda will be there to greet you. Always an interesting mix of relatives, guests, and even celebrities (met a BBC World News presenter). One of the few places you can bring your dog and/or smoke indoors. (Your dog may not want to leave)
No radio, television, hot tub, jacuzzi or wi-fi available. Cellphone/GPS signal may fade before you get there. Potential ghostly encounters with previous ancestors or Civil War invaders.
Welbourne is featured in a number of books and is on the cover of “Old Plantations and Historic Homes Around Middleburg, Virginia: And the Families Who Lived and Loved Within Their Walls” (2003) by Audrey Windsor Bergner.
