Make your next getaway or celebration worth savoring at the Hummingbird Inn. Whether you’re looking for a romantic setting, comforting country hospitality, or easy access to the amenities of the scenic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, this historic bed and breakfast’s elegant, relaxed atmosphere is ideal for you. From the Inn’s convenient location in the quaint, rural town of Goshen, visitors can explore the natural wonders of Goshen Pass and experience the cultural offerings of Lexington, Staunton and Warm Springs/Hot Springs, then “come home” to a warm, beautifully-appointed private retreat or great place to be with family and friends.
First built in 1780 and expanded in 1853 to its current size, the Hummingbird Inn has five guest rooms, a private cabin on the creek and plenty of common space to host celebrations, family gatherings, reunions, weddings, business meetings and events. In addition to welcoming you to the authentically-restored architecture of the Inn, sharing its history and the excitement of passing trains, and guiding you through the abundant nearby recreational opportunities, Innkeepers Sandra and Jeff pride themselves on offering seasonal, farm-fresh local fare at the Inn’s complimentary two-course country breakfast and for special-order picnic/backpack/brown bag lunches and antipasto dinner platters. Experience the natural and cultural treasures of the Shenandoah Valley from a cozy home-base at the Hummingbird Inn. Once you do, you’ll see why our guests return again and again!
Two stories of verandas wrap three sides of the house offering guests plenty of seating to relax, view the gardens and birds while listening to the babbling stream nearby. Enjoy over 1 1/2 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens surrounding the inn, offering a peaceful getaway and the chance for a quiet stroll among the trees and flowers, many native to Virginia. Perhaps a game of croquet; we often play croquet in our side yard or back yard by the old livery stable. A wide trout stream flows behind the property, just beyond our historic 1875 barn. Relax on the covered deck and watch the stream flow past below. Fishermen might want to drop a line and test their luck. On cool evenings, light a fire at the covered deck and listen to the gentle sounds of Mill Creek or enjoy a bonfire under the vast starry sky.
For hikers and kayakers, nearby Goshen Pass is a veritable vacation paradise, with dozens of miles of hiking trails and one of VA's most challenging rivers.
