Close to Goshen Pass, a spectacular rocky gorge, you'll find fishing, hiking, antiquing, and lovely countryside to explore. Robert E. Lee Chapel, Stonewall Jackson House, and other historic sites in Lexington, Staunton and Warm and Hot Springs, as well as a working grist mill, and a small vineyard are popular spots to visit. Theater, great restaurants and music abound in the area.

Relaxing on the wraparound porch


An 1853 Carpenter Gothic villa, the first rooms of the Hummingbird Inn were actually constructed in 1780. Five spacious guestrooms, four with queen beds, one with a king-sized bed, have private baths, two with jacuzzis. The inn is furnished with comfortable cozy style and all rooms feature air-conditioners, ceiling fans, fireplaces, and amazingly soft sheets. Plentiful common areas include the rustic den with wood fireplace, a large living room, a solarium, and a spacious dining room. Wrap-around verandas on the first and second floors offer lovely views of the gardens, and in the summertime the hummingbirds will keep you amused. A deck overlooking the stream next to the barn out back is a relaxing place to spend the afternoon, or a place to visit with friends in front of the outdoor fireplace in the evening. The Inn offers WIFI, a 24 hr coffee bar, with drinks and snacks all around.
