Fancy hotels can be nice, but it’s also fun to stay in a quaint bed and breakfast instead. With the more intimate and personal touches, it can be the most relaxing and romantic experience. Middleburg Country Inn, Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast and Stone Manor Bed & Breakfast are only a few examples of the many places to retreat for a weekend. Many offer elegant dining options, beautiful rooms and other amenities like an onsite spa at Goodstone Inn & Restaurant or horseback riding for guests at Serene Manor.
