The Carriage Inn

The Carriage Inn is steeped in Colonial and Civil War history. The Civil War era owners hosted Confederate Generals Turner Ashby, J.E.B. Stuart, Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, and Robert E. Lee. In September 1864, Union Generals Philip Sheridan and Ulysses S. Grant met in the Inn’s dining room to plan The 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Built in 1840, The Carriage Inn has been operated successfully as a B&B since 1985. It is listed on The National Register of Historic Places and is a Jefferson County Historical Landmark.
