“Perfect Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We have been staying (and sending our family and friends) to the Middleton Inn almost since it opened in the Mid-1990's, and we just returned from another weekend stay. The property and the rooms are absolutely beautiful -- and comfortable. The food and the service are perfectly delivered, and if you are animal lovers, the Inn is like a sanctuary. It comes complete with two wonderfully sweet yellow labradors, a horse or two, and at least a half dozen very friendly cats. These happy animals complete the charm of the Inn and add to the sense that it is thoughtfully and caringly run. We always look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The cottage is very private, but the rooms in the main house are also lovely and quiet.

Spent New Year's Eve at this magical place and everything was just perfect! The inn is beautiful, the food is amazing and Mary Ann, our hostess, made every effort to make our visit perfect and make us feel at home. The surroundings, the view, the town, the people...absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful wonderful experience!

Just a few minutes away, you find amazing wineries and vineyards and we also ventured into the breathtaking Shenandoah National Park. Will be back soon!!!

The Middleton Inn is a feast for the senses. The inn itself is visually beautiful, and the surrounding vistas are absolutely gorgeous. The decorations throughout show a designer's touch, and a feeling of elegance pervades. The sounds of silence in the charming small town are peaceful and restful, too, and we felt like we were in a whole different world than the one we live in. And, the smells and flavors emanating from the kitchen are luscious; the three course breakfast we enjoyed was gourmet. Mary Ann Kuhn, the proprietor, runs a very upscale inn with lots of small, personal touches that made us feel incredibly welcome. We would definitely stay there again if we are in the area!

Room Tip: The Inn offers two cabins, and we stayed in one of them and enjoyed the privacy and exclusivity.

This is the ultimate in an historic Inn experience. Gorgeous furnishings in an old plantation home, beautiful room with a fireplace and glorious fall view. Breakfast out of this world plus fine hospitality. Perfect!

October 6, 2013 This historic property on a bucolic hillside in Washington, Virginia, is an 1840 brick manor house with an elegant interior, antique furnishings and spectacular views. Innkeeper/proprietor Mary Ann Kuhn is the consummate hostess, attentive to every need. She offers wine and port, cheese, fruit and crackers, coffee and chocolates, as well as travel and restaurant advice. She and her genial staff serve a sumptuous breakfast on Herend and Minton china in the inn's gracious dining room. The formality of the house is subtly tempered by the horses, dogs and cats that also call the Middleton Inn home. We plan to return in spring when Washington is in bloom.

Location, service, food, room and especially hospitality. Everything you would expect at this level but done in a way that wasn't pretentious or over the top. Mary Ann was charming and the views were spectacular. Breakfast was fabulous - 3 courses of perfection. Wine and cheese, port and champagne on arrival. Will definitely return.

The Middleton Inn, its owner and staff provide a wonderful luxury retreat in the foothills of the Shenandoah's near wineries, hiking, canoeing and of course all the treats of the Inn at Little Washington (and the new Little Washington Wellness & Spa - which we highly recommend). We stayed in the cottage which provides a little extra space to hang out and one of the only jacuzzi tubs within an hour's drive. Tip - for an extra special jacuzzi, the Inn at Little Washington gift shop sells their bath salts in single use pillows. The Middleton Inn cheese and champagne, and more cheese and wine, and evening port and quiet but attentive service all added to the luxury. And, then the breakfast! Some of the best scones and waffles ever. The waffles come topped with beautifully ripe and tasty fruit. I think the best bed and breakfast breakfast we've had. The owner was super helpful with area recommendations and reservations as well. A great get away!
