“Another Excellent Experience”
Reviewed October 20, 2010

This was our second stay at the Middleton Inn, and it was better than the first time. We traveled back to Washington, VA for a special dinner and wanted to stay at the Middleton again, after our initial visit there in May. We had hoped to catch the Autumn foliage so we asked to stay in a west-facing room, which we were able to get. Again, the room was wonderful - clean and inviting. The proprietor, Mary Ann, was busy when we arrived, as the Inn was hosting a tea, but she heard us making our way up to the room and came up to greet us. She had placed a special surprise in the room, as it was my wife's birthday, and even had sparkling cider on ice for us when we arrived (part of the treatment for guests is wine and cheese in the afternoon, but on our first visit we were offered sparkling cider since we don't drink - it was nice to have that detail remembered). The charm of this place is not just the facility - terrific grounds and wonderfully peaceful setting, but the manner in which everyone makes you feel so welcome - we feel like Mary Ann is an old friend, even though we have only stayed overnight on these two occasions, and the chef (who I mistakenly thought was Mary Ann's husband after the first visit - not for any reason other than some poor assumptions by me! They both laughed at my mistake), aside from making a delicious breakfast, is also great at conversation and making you feel right at home. There are apparently a few B&B's in Washington, VA, but there is no need to search any further than the Middleton. Go there and you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I recently spent a night at the Middleton Inn. We were impressed with the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not diappointed. We stayed in the cottage which was delightful. Wine & champagne greeted us in the sitting room. The property and the views are spectacular. We had dinner at the Inn at Little Washington which was great and the Middleton Inn put an exclamation point on the whole weekend. Mary Ann, the proprietor was very warm and charming and her animals are great. Don't miss the experience if you have the chance. We will definitely be back.

On our first visit to the Inn we were delighted to discover that our room combined lovely, comfortable antiques with luxurious modern amenities. We loved the little special touches: fabulous, individually prepared breakfasts; wine and cheese before dinner; port at bedtime. We feel that the Inn is the ultimate in gracious living, combining the best parts of visiting someone's private home with staying in a luxury hotel.

My husband stayed at the Middleton Inn for just one night, but wished we had more time to enjoy the cabin we booked. Upon check-in we discovered a lovely bottle of perfectly chilled Champagne awaiting us with a lovely handwritten note from the proprietor, Mary Ann Kuhn. The only thing that made the glass of champagne even more enjoyable was the view from the front porch of the cabin, complete with comfortable rocking chairs, to truly put you in a relaxed state of mind.

The cabin was perfectly restored (circa 1700) and beautifully updated (Viking range in the kitchen!). I haven't even started to describe the breakfast, I'm still dreaming of the ginger scones. As far as I'm concerned, I'm going to make this my "go-to" B&B for the future. I can't wait to take another trip, this time with the whole family...dog included, the cabin is pet friendly.

What an amazing experience we had at this absolutely beautiful Inn. Its rooms are so very elegant, the common areas are so welcoming and warm, and memories of the Inn’s delicious breakfasts still make our mouths water. The Inn’s owner, Mary Ann, is an absolutely fantastic host. She has done everything possible at the Inn to ensure that her guests have wonderful memories to take home with them. The Inn is nestled in an incredibly tranquil setting with breathtaking views, and the recommendation of things to do while in the area were the icing on the cake. We travel quite a lot and stay in B&B’s most of the time. The Middleton Inn is one we will visit again and again and again!! It’s truly an unforgettable experience.

Myself, my wife, and our two maltese pups went to Middleton Inn to celebrate two birthdays (wife and boy pup) and we couldn't have spent a better time anywhere else. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. We stayed in the cottage and the decor was luxurious and cozy. Mary Ann prepared arrival gifts for my wife and pups and made us so comfortable that we didn't leave for the rest of the afternoon and evening; we had to drag ourselves out for dinner. Staying in the cottage was an experience we loved. The surrounding area is so beautiful and relaxing; the cottage has it's own space apart from the main house and an amazing view of the Blue Ridge mountains. Middleton also has soo much land, it seemed, it seemed more than any other B&B in Washington. It's perfect to sit out and relax on a beautiful day and our pups loved it!! The cottage is also so charmingly decorated. We also had the pleasure of getting to know Mary Ann a bit more before leaving and she took us on a mini-tour of the rest of the property, she's the best!

My husband & I recently celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with a trip to northcentral Virginia. Our plan was to eat our anniversary dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, but we were looking for some place a bit less pricey to stay for a few days. We have 3 small dogs that we like to take with us everywhere (2 yorkies and 1 shih tzu) so the search was on for a pet friendly lodging in the area that would also accomodate our 2 teen-aged children. Well, we found a gem just a stone's throw away from the restaurant. The Middleton Inn is absolutely beautiful, full of history and surrounded by lush Virginia countryside. The inn itself has rooms for 2 with private baths, but we chose the larger 2BR, 2BA log cabin that is pet friendly and sleeps 4. I was in heaven because my decor of choice is early American Primitive. Breakfast was prepared and served by Chef Jerry and was always 5-star. With both The Inn at Little Washington and The Blue Rock Inn Restaurant and Pub close by, gourmet dinners were always available. Innkeeper, Mary Ann Kuhn, is a pet lover herself and made all of us, including our pups, feel very comfortable and welcome. I would highly recommend the Middleton Inn for an unforgetable country retreat.
