Town of Middleburg

America's horse and hunt country capital, home to the Forbes 5 Star Salamander Resort & Spa, is a gorgeous settlement dating back to 1728 when a fieldstone tavern was established on an old Indian trail by a cousin of George Washington. That tavern became the Red Fox Inn, still going strong today. The historic downtown is lined with chic boutiques, raffish men’s stores, and superb café and restaurants, while the surrounding countryside is straight out of an Edith Wharton novel: handsome mansions at the end of oak shaded driveways, thoroughbred horses frolicking in the fields. Scores of wineries and breweries have recently sprung up, as well as a craft distillery, and 2013 saw the opening of the luxe equine-themed Salamander, and the first Middleburg Film Festival, now a major stop on the Oscar trail. Find out why Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor called Middleburg home.
