Just an hour outside of the nation's capital, Fauquier County has become synonymous with Hunt Country and all things equestrian in Virginia. These rolling hills at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains host posh polo matches, fox hunts, and vast green pastures. Fine pedigrees aren't confined to the stables, though; peek inside one of the historic manor homes set back from the road and you'll find an affluent society seeking simplicity in the countryside.
Blackthorne Inn & Restaurant brings the spirit of Eire to the Hunt Country town of Upperville, Virginia. Consider yourself very lucky, indeed, to be staying in the 1763 stone house—once owned by George Washington—where cozy cabins and cottages are named for counties in Ireland. All accommodations feature plush beds and satellite TV, while many offer Jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces, and decks. With breakfast overlooking a serene pond and a setting as green as the Emerald Isle, you won't need to leave your room. But when you do, be sure to grab a bite to eat and a perfectly-poured pint of Guinness at Blackthorne Restaurant and Wolfe Tone's Pub.
The inn's location in the heart of Hunt Country gives guests easy access to year-round entertainment like polo matches, steeplechase races, rafting, antique shops, and Civil War battlefields. Take in the scenery during an afternoon hike near historic Ashby Gap or pamper your palate with a wine tasting at one of the nearby wineries. The inn also can arrange trail rides throughout the area.
