Built in 1763 and once owned by George Washington, this romantic stone house combines the atmosphere of Ireland with modern in-room amenities such as Jacuzzis and plush bedding.

The Destination
Just an hour's drive 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.

The Digs
Blackthorne Inn & Restaurant brings the spirit of Eire to the Hunt Country town of Upperville, Virginia. Cozy cabins at this 1763 stone house—once owned by George Washington—are charmingly named after counties in Ireland. All feature plush beds, flat-screen satellite TVs, Jacuzzi tubs, and porches; many also offer wood-burning fireplaces. With breakfast overlooking a serene pond and a setting as green as the Emerald Isle, you won't ever need to leave your room—but when you're ready, be sure to grab a bite to eat and a perfectly-poured pint of Guinness at Blackthorne Restaurant and Wolfe Tone's Pub.

The Diversions
Year-round entertainment. The inn's location in the heart of Hunt Country gives guests easy access to polo matches, steeplechase races, antique shops, Civil War battlefields, and more.
Scenic strolling awaits. Take in the scenery during an afternoon hike near historic Ashby Gap. The inn also can arrange trail rides throughout the area.
Let the wine flow. Pamper your palate with a wine tasting at Naked Mountain Winery & Vineyards or any of several nearby wineries.

  • "Absolutely amazing! The cabins are adorable and perfect for a romantic weekend. Between the wine, cheese, Jacuzzi, and fireplace, my husband and I felt like we were on our second honeymoon! Everyone was so friendly, and we cant wait to go back!"

  • "Magical setting and friendly folks! We enjoyed the towns, nearby wineries, and scenic byways mixed with history. We've already recommended the Blackthorne Inn, especially the cabins, to our family and friends."
