The original portion of the Inn dates back to the pre-stage coach days, circa 1787. Sitting on the northwest corner of the Village, it is a cream stucco frame building (old log tavern) with a center stone chimney, which was known as Barbee’s Tavern. The tavern was in operation during colonial and Civil War times and had a thriving business. The tavern has wide pine flooring, exposed American Chestnut interior logs, and 3 stone decorative fireplaces. During the War Between the States, wounded soldiers from the First and Second Battles of Bull Run were taken to the Tavern. It also served as headquarters to both the Union and Confederate armies.
Today, the Tavern is the anchor of the Hume Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
From the Free State Room on the Tavern’s first floor ascend the narrow, historic staircase to the Commonwealth Suite, where you will be swept away by 18th century elegance combined with modern amenities and luxurious comfort.
We invite you to experience this American treasure, and to escape to the comfort and luxury of this historic Tavern while you plan your memorable adventure in Virginia wine country.
