Flint Hill Public House and Country Inn

Flint Hill is a charming area outside of Washington, DC in the Virginia Hunt Country. I have always liked the area, it's less developed and off the beaten track, beyond Middleburg.  It's like Little Washington's  (Va) poor cousin. 

Perched on a hill above the namesake village it overlooks, the Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn is a large white house that is hard to miss. The building is a former schoolhouse that has been a fixture in the area for over 100 years.  In the early 1900s, a one-room schoolhouse was moved from the premises to make room for a new school called the Flint Hill School. Built in 1906, the new school was instrumental in educating Rappahannock County children until 1960, when the property was sold and became a private residence.

In June 2011, two local businessmen purchased the property and undertook an extensive renovation and redesign.  Today you find a modern inn with all the local flavor of old Virginia.  I can't wait to go.


  1. How beautiful. Looks like you visited in the spring, when the apple trees were in bloom.
