Widow Kip’s Country Inn
“Historic home; cozy atmosphere; charming hosts; great breakfast; beautiful location….here is a combination that is sure to please everyone looking for a home away from home while in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.” –TripAdvisor Reviewer
Mount Jackson, Virginia provides a step back in time that is perfect for any history enthusiast, and no place reflects that rich history better than BBHSV member Widow Kip’s Country Inn. Widow Kip’s Country Inn is a restored Victorian home built in 1830 that boasts both elegance and history. Each of the five bedrooms—The Wildflower Room, The Morning Glory Room, The Marigold Room, The Hollyhock Room, and The Sweet William Room—are outfitted in history with everything from canopy beds to 1920s inlay furniture to empire dressers and antique armoires.
The inn itself is not the only history in the area, of course. If you’re staying at Widow Kip’s, then there are a few historic sites right down the road from your lodging:
The Virginia Museum of the Civil War– “The Virginia Museum of the Civil War (VMCW), Bushong Farm, and self-guided battlefield tour provide many opportunities to reflect upon the social and military struggle which changed the course of American history.” Explore artifacts and dioramas, battlefields, and stained glass windows that depict the war in the Shenandoah Valley.
Fisher’s Hill– Jubal Early’s Confederate army fought the Battle of Fisher’s Hill on September 21–22, 1864. They were defeated by the Union Army of the Shenandoah during a “scorched earth” invasion. You can now walk the battleground for yourself and explore what history has left behind.
