Middleton Inn
Ranked #5 of 8 Washington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2012

A positively wonderful stay! The owner and caretaker delighted us with charm and even equipped our room with a celebratory bottle of champagne for our engagement. This wonderful historical inn has spectacular views of the nearby Shenandoah's. In addition to the wonderful service, you may be greeted by cute kitties and puppies, but don't let em in the house! Middleton Inn is a nice alternative to the more expensive Inn at Little Washington where you may be dining a short walk down the street. Expect a high price but it's a wonderful treat. Breakfast was a delight. Don't forget to try the delicious homemade scones!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are sunny with a nice view.

From the moment we were greeted upon arrival, Mary Ann did everything possible to see that we had an enjoyable stay. The beautiful setting, tasty gourmet breakfasts, after dinner port and comfortable room are just a few of the attributes that contributed to this perfect weekend away. Anything we asked for or needed was delivered--pronto! We look forward to a return visit and recommend this charming Inn without hesitation!

Room Tip: Front rooms have a superb view!

My husband and I stayed at the Middleton Inn for a recent wedding anniversary. We were planning on dining at the Inn at Little Washington and were not interested in paying $700+ for a room at the Inn. The Middleton Inn is just down the street and was an absolutely perfect choice! We arrived in the early afternoon and found there was absolutely nothing to do in the town. However, we were welcomed at the Inn by Mary Ann, several cats, and dogs. We started the afternoon reading on the front porch and when the shade left us moved to the lovely back porch. We sipped champagne and enjoyed the unplugged respite from our hectic lives. Our room was quiet, comfortable, and beautiful. The service was impeccable. The breakfast was delicious -- the best scones we've ever had! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and hope to return some day.

We just spent two nights in Washington VA at the beautifully restored Middleton Inn (c. 1850) and could not be more pleased with our experience. This beautiful brick manor house sits on a knoll at the edge of town with breathtaking front-porch views of the surrounding Shenandoah foothills. The owner, Mary Ann, was most personable and gracious in seeing to our every comfort in her well appointed Federal-style manor rooms with marble bath and fireplace. The courtesy and pleasant service of her staff was equally superb. Conveniently located just a few short blocks to five-star dining at the Inn of Little Washington, with captivating gift & antique shops, galleries and the delightful Little Washington Winery nearby, the Middleton Inn is an ideal destination for a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend.

This is a lovely inn in its own right, and a great alternative to staying at the Inn at Little Washington if you are coming for the purpose of eating dinner there. The building is beautiful, the staff is accommodating and the rooms are comfortable. Yes, the floors creak, but the place has been around for a very long time. Yes, the prices are high, but the location is ideal -- the Inn down the street is not exactly a bargain basement value. Breakfast at Middleton was prepared perfectly. Having stayed both here and at the Inn, I enjoyed this as much or more in some respects. The service is less obsequious and the furnishings are not rococo, which I appreciate. Plus, it is nice to get away from the Inn after dinner, I find. Still, if you are looking for the full-on Inn at Little Washington experience, you should realize that this is more laid back and casual. For what it is, Middleton does it well.
