Congratulations on your upcoming new addition! Your lives are about to change in a big way, so now is the time to soak up the leisure of just you two, celebrate each other and transition from couple to family. If you live near Washington DC, we invite you to our luxurious country inn — the perfect place for a northern Virginia babymoon escape!
Relax at an Idyllic Virginia Country Estate
Just a short drive from the city awaits a stately bed and breakfast in the Shenandoah Valley. You’ll love exploring the 45 acres of pastures, lawns, and gardens for an easy walk or hike. Maybe you’ll even get an opportunity to stop and greet one of the majestic horses, or happy chickens – whose eggs you will find in your complimentary gourmet breakfast. When weather permits, you’ll enjoy taking the weight off your tired feet with a relaxing float in our heated pool while soaking up the iconic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Or in cooler weather, you can curl up by the fire in our warm and welcoming Hunt Room, an inviting common area with comfortable places to sit and unique architectural details, like oak-paneled walls and exposed beams – it’s oh, so cozy!
Fill Your Days with Quaint Small Towns and Epic Scenery
Even though our Huntly, VA inn is just an hour from Washington DC, you’ll feel like you’re in a whole other world. Spend your leisurely days exploring the cutest small towns, like Washington, VA, where you’ll find unique shops, antique stores and the best chocolatier ever at Wine Loves Chocolate. Or take a trip up the infamous Skyline Drive to discover the beauty of Shenandoah National Park. If you’re up for it, a light hike that we love is the Stony Man Loop, via the popular Appalachian Trail. Best explored from April through September on clear days, this short 1.5 mile loop rewards you with the most fantastic views!
Sorry About the “No Wine”… but Get Ready to Dine!
We know that the list of “no’s” during pregnancy can be a drag, especially during a visit to one of the country’s best places to go wine tasting. We still suggest you visit some of the local wineries, as many offer delightful picnic options and a beautiful drive on country roads. Plus, you can pick up a bottle or two for gifts or save them until you’re allowed to enjoy! Luckily though your palate will be pleased in other ways at our Virginia B&B. Each morning you’ll be treated to our multi-course farm-fresh breakfast, with inn-baked goodies and gourmet entrées worth waking up for. In the evening, you can take the easy walk over to our fine-dining Houndstooth Restaurant, headed by celebrity Chef Dayn Smith. You’ll delight in a 5-course prix fixe menu, crafted with ingredients from local organic farms. If you want to really treat yourselves, and connect further with the food, the Chef offers a pre-dinner Cooking Class where you’ll learn kitchen secrets from knife skills to professional presentation.
Relish in Relaxation With a Visit to Our Virginia Country Spa
Whether you’re starting to feel the physical effects of pregnancy, or you just need to relax and refresh, you’ll love the convenient access to our very own Tack Room Spa. We’re happy to also provide couple’s massage services, so you and your partner can relax and reconnect together. Maybe he or she will even pick up a massage technique or two to get you through your last few months before the baby arrives!
Get a Good Night’s Sleep in Luxurious Accommodations
We all love the comforts of home, but every once in a while you need to indulge in those little luxuries that you may not have on a daily basis. Now is the time to treat yourselves to a lavish getaway before the midnight feedings and constant diaper changes begin. Our elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites offer the most comfortable queen or king beds, along with amenities to make you swoon, like plush bathrobes, relaxing soaking tubs, roomy two-head showers, and private outdoor spaces with magnificent views.
