There’s something about a weekend getaway to a bed and breakfast in Virginia wine country that really soothes the soul. Tucked away in the foothills of Washington, D.C.’s Wine Country or just minutes from a historic town or village, Loudoun County’s 40+ B&Bs offer unique and cozy accommodations in Virginia’s rolling countryside.
From modern multi-room properties with stunning vineyard views to centuries-old homes, there are countless unique escapes throughout Loudoun. Here are six romantic Bed & Breakfasts for wine lovers in Northern Virginia.
6 ROMANTIC BED & BREAKFASTS FOR WINE LOVERS IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA
Stone Gables Bed & Breakfast, Leesburg
Tucked in mist-shrouded hills between Leesburg and Middleburg, Stone Gables has a distinct Colorado ski lodge vibe. The stone walls, pine interiors and crackling wood fireplaces keep you warm on winter nights, while the expansive grounds make for great walks and hiking trails. When it snows it feels as if you are in the Rockies. Owners Leslie and Wayne Tharp bought it in 2018 and installed an open plan chef’s kitchen off the lobby, where hearty breakfasts are made. “When a group books the house, we can arrange a chef to cook dinner, so you don’t have to drive,” said Tharp. Of the four rooms, the Stone Gables Suite with original stone walls, wood beams and romantic clawfoot tub is a favorite. Learn more here.
AltaTerra Farm Bed & Breakfast, Hillsborough
This expansive arts and crafts-style B&B with three sprawling guest rooms on the slopes of a working farm outside Hillsborough has some of the best views in Loudoun. Book the main Shiraz Suite with its steam shower, billiard room, stone fireplace and private terrace. Wander outside in the morning to see the sun come up over the valley, then watch is set over the Blue Ridge in the evenings. AltaTerra also connects to Hidden View B&B and Hillsborough Winery, Brewery & Vineyard via a set of gates, so you can take long hikes on the 60 acres between them. Make sure to end up at the winery/brewery to enjoy a craft ale or glass of Ruby Red while soaking up stunning views of the valley below. Learn more here.
The Manor at Airmont, Round Hill
This stunning, all-purpose venue owned by Anthony Francis, a pastor from Louisiana, does everything from the flowers to the main event and doubles as a B&B when wedding season is quiet. Set in lush acres of rolling Piedmont countryside, it has five guest rooms with separate hotel-style entrances—all done in chic, modern, clean-lined French-country style. Opt for either Walnut or Willow, the bride and groom suites, one on the ground floor off the Manor House front porch while the other is out back. Enjoy a superb farm fresh breakfast, and if a group books out the whole property, they can bring in the caterer Zesty Gourmet to make dinner. Ideally located between historic Round Hill and Bluemont, you are steps from Bluemont Vineyard and a short drive from Middleburg and Purcellville. Learn more here.
Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast Inn, Middleburg
Set on 47 acres of rolling Blue Ridge foothills just outside Middleburg, this family-run inn on a historic early 19th century farm is the perfect combination of comfort and tradition. The 200-year-old main house has eight charming antique-filled guest rooms, each named for one of the flowers that can be found in the surrounding gardens. There’s a separate one-room cottage with a living room and kitchen that affords extra privacy, but we recommend the new-build Chicken Coop, a three-bedroom structure on the site of a former chicken coop adjacent to the cottage. Sumptuous breakfasts of baked eggs, vegetable quiches, French toast, seasonal fruits and coffee are served in the main house—perfect to fortify you for a leisurely walk on the grounds.

Mortgage Hall Estate, Middleburg
In the heart of Middleburg horse country, this 1850s Georgian Manor stands sentinel at the end of a long, oak-shaded driveway on a 121-acre working farm. Popular for weddings and private groups, as you must reserve the whole home, this immaculately preserved property has the understated elegance of all great country houses, filled as it is with period antiques, oil paintings, leather Ottomans, fireplaces and a working grand piano. There are 10 guest rooms to choose from and a beautiful stone patio out back, overlooking a pond and horses grazing in the fields. Learn more here.
Linden Hall Farm, Lovettsville
If it’s history and outdoors that you want with your wine country experience, look no further than this 1790s farmhouse B&B north of Lovettsville that’s just a short drive from the Potomac River. Rebuilt in the 1800s, restored in the 1960s and modernized in 2009 by current owners Bart and Carol Hodgson, the house features three guest rooms, a modern kitchen and secluded private porch, while the 35 surrounding acres of farmland feature a carriage house, spring house, stables and stone cottage. Spend hours exploring the grounds, venture to nearby Harpers Ferry for river adventures, or experience the great restaurants, farm breweries and wineries of nearby Lovettsville. You are only 40 miles from Washington, D.C., but it feels a world away. Learn more here.
