Black Dog Farm Inn at Mt. Welby
Step back in time at the charming Black Dog Farm Inn at Mt. Welby. The property was established in the early 1800's and the home underwent a full restoration in 2004, maintaining the historic integrity of the original wood-and-stone home while updating it with modern amenities. The three-story house has the grandeur of a country estate and the comforts of a boutique hotel. There are six fireplaces, a large great room, formal dining room/retreat space, gourmet kitchen, study, several porches/balconies, hot tub, and plenty of outdoor patio space. The home still has its original wood floors, high ceilings, stunning moulding detail, and stonework. It is perfectly situated on top of a small hill, offering spectacular views in every direction. The 23 acre estate includes manicured gardens, expansive patios, stables and pastures, ponds, majestic shade trees, and panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Visit the horses and goats, go for a trail ride at the neighboring Marriott Ranch, visit local wineries, bring your hiking boots and hit the Appalachian Trail, or just relax on the patio or next to the fire with a good book. It is a great place to relax or play.
