Set on over 44 scenic acres in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, this village of six guest houses surrounds a lovely limestone spring. Enjoy views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, manicured gardens and grounds, a summertime swimming pool, trails through the pasture and woods, and a small herd of Holstein cattle.

Accommodations range from elegant rooms in the gracious 200 year old Manor House to cozy rooms in a charming 1850’s log house. For the ultimate in seclusion, stay in one of our private one-bedroom cottages: a converted artist’s studio at the water’s edge, or a re-purposed art gallery with views of the meadow, or a tobacco-barn-turned-luxury-cabin overlooking the spring valley. All rooms have fireplaces, private baths with Jacuzzi tubs, and king or queen beds.

Dine at the inn Tuesday through Saturday evenings and experience outstanding contemporary American cuisine without leaving the grounds. The romantic candle-lit dinners at Vaucluse are not to be missed. In the morning, the full 3-course breakfast changes with the season’s availability (from our own early spring watercress to local late fall apples), but always includes locally roasted Black Dog Coffee and local farm fresh eggs.

Activities in our area range from strolling through charming Old Town Winchester to experiencing Shenandoah National Park to visiting our local wineries. We are happy to help you plan your stay.
