The Ashby Inn is located in a beautiful area of No. VA, and the garden setting made the meals a wonderful experience. We stayed in the "Fan Room", named for the fan shaped window and headboard, also named for the commercial fan in the kitchen below (you'll be up before 7:30a). Dinner was excellent, but service was not attentive. Breakfast was better than Denny's, but just (the omelets are greasy). Pick a different room and breakfast and you'll have a better experience.

We had dinner at The Ashby Inn with our family on Thanksgiving and it was delightful! It was a 4 course dinner that was absolutely delicous. I choose the sweet potato soup, turnip and duck risotto and the turkey with pumpkin pie for dessert. All was delicous--service was good, not too in your face, but there to serve you. The place is very quaint and special. I would definitely recommend The Ashby Inn for anyone trying to get away from your average city restaurant and the nice country drive and atmosphere is really special! Very reasonably priced for the portions, atmosphere and service.

Nestled in the tiny hamlet of Paris, surrounded by little but the rolling hills of horse country in northen Virginia, The Ashby Inn is an island of comfort and elegance. There are rooms in both a small main building, which also houses the restaurant, and in a recently renovated schoolhouse nearby. Our room in the schoolhouse was very clean, ample, bright and elegantly decorated with antiques, persian rugs and modern drapery and wing chairs. There was a working fireplace and small deck. The restaurant was charming with wall art, cozy wood booths and linen table cloths. Service was impeccable. The dinner menu does not stray too far from Amercian fare. Dishes were very well executed. Even the house wine was suprising good.The Inn appears to have a loyal older local and youinger DC-based clientel. It's a true respite from the noise and the crowd. Ideal for a getaway. Book weeks head.
