New boutique inn housed in a 19th-century building, with a restaurant serving locally sourced seasonal menus and Virginia wines

Inn at a Glance: The Blackburn Inn

The newly opened Blackburn Inn is named for architect (and Thomas Jefferson mentee) Thomas R. Blackburn, who designed some of the buildings here on the former grounds of the Western State Hospital. The 1828 building retains historical elements like its red-brick façade and white columns, along with a spiral staircase in the foyer and original doors. A posh makeover has given the guest rooms a fresh look from their high ceilings to their pine floors.

  • Continental breakfast comes with freshly baked pastries and breads, seasonal fruit, locally sourced artisanal cheeses, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juice.
  • Local ingredients fuel the seasonal menus at Second Draft restaurant, which also serves Virginia wines.
  • Local art is featured in guest rooms and the inn’s art gallery.

Staunton, Virginia: Historic Small Town in the Shenandoah Valley

Staunton sits in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, about two hours northwest of Richmond. Trolley cars run along the town’s historic main street, which is lined with well-preserved examples of several 19th-century architectural styles. Another striking structure is the Blackfriars Playhouse, where the American Shakespeare Center performs the Bard’s plays in a replica of the Elizabethan theater where many of them were originally staged.

Staunton’s most famous son is Woodrow Wilson, so it’s fitting that his presidential library is here. Inside, you’ll find exhibits relating to Wilson’s life, including personal belongings, photographs, and prank telegrams sent to foreign heads of state.
