We just stayed at The Red Fox Inn last week for the first time ever. The Inn is ideally located for strolling around Middleburg which is full of fun little shops. As horse people, we really enjoyed the horsey flavor to everything in town. The staff at the Inn was very welcoming. Since I had previewed the room online before booking, there were no surprises. We had a two room suite on the fourth floor of the main building. They offered to take our bags up all those stairs but we opted to do it ourselves for the exercise. I might rethink that on future visits. The room was nicely appointed. Unlike some of the reviews I read, our room was very fresh and clean. The carpets were new and the furnishings were appropriately antiquey... The bedding was nice but the pillows and mattress were lacking. We have a fabulous bed at home so I have never found a hotel bed to my liking, so others might be fine with it. We ate in the restaurant for dinner. While it was expensive (nearly $200 for two people) we did order a lot of food, and everything we had was absolutely divine. I mean I ate some things I generally would say I don't eat (like cauliflower) and it was fantastic. Our server was pleasant and helpful. She was very busy and some of the service was a bit uneven, especially the beverage delivery, but the atmosphere, wonderful food and interesting people made up for any minor flaws. We will be back.
