Delightful Shenandoah Valley Inns Offer Their Own Brand of Luxury
In Frederick County, there are two Shenandoah Valley Inns that each offer their own brand of luxury retreat!
In the beautiful town of Berryville, you'll find Waypoint House. Just minutes from Winchester and Harper's Ferry, WVA, this Valley offers an historic setting with modern conveniences. Built in 1884, it was the home of Miss Nannie McGuire, daughter of Nancy Boyd McGuire and Dr. William McGuire.
Nannie was a first cousin of Dr. Hunter Holmes McGuire, who was the Chief Surgeon for General Stonewall Jackson's Corps during the Civil War. The house only changed hands a few times over its long history with the current owners listed as the sixth owners.
And there's plenty to do! Both Veramar Vineyards and Greenhill Winery and Vineyards are nearby. Hiking trails and farms are both a part of this country setting, with nearby Winchester offering museums and historical sites to see.
When you stay at Waypoint House, expect to spend some time in their gardens. It's a treat! Springtime brings a variety of daffodils and tulips, while summer is showy with lilies and hydrangea. In July, guests enjoy the vegetable and herb gardens, which are in full force, providing the Shenandoah Valley Inn with fresh garden items for the breakfast table.
Shenandoah Valley Inn with a French Twist
Further north in White Post, you'll find a Virginia Bed and Breakfast with a distinctly French flavor. Meet L'Auberge Provencale.
Originally, a young Charles and George Washington were hired by Lord Fairfax in the 1740's to survey his vast land holdings, of which included what is now known as L'Auberge Provencale. Of that original survey, 880 acres was given to Samuel Bell, an Irish sheep farmer. He built the main house in 1753, which was called at that time, Mt. Airy.
Later, Fielding Lewis and George Washington would become the trustees of the property. Today, L'Auberge Provencale is a French Country Inn. With a remarkable, authentic Provencal experience.
Romantic, elegant, and beautiful, guests enjoy modern, regional French-flair cuisine from their nationally acclaimed restaurant. The menu features herbs, vegetables, and fruits from their orchards and gardens. Complimenting their garden bounty are the best of local ingredients.
You'll definitely want to explore the countryside. There's so much to see! Upon your return, you'll find L'Eau de Puits, chocolates by your bed, and all the modern conveniences you expect.
Each room is individually decorated with original artwork and French country antiques with some offering aromatherapy steam showers and fireplaces.
So there you have it. Two beautiful inns with amenities galore. And as a StayVA property, you are assured of the highest level of service and professionalism possible. The only thing left to do is decide your brand of luxury lodging!
