Lodging in the Heart of Shenandoah Valley
Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Steeles Tavern, Virginia on 50 picturesque acres is Steeles Tavern Manor. Innkeepers Trey and Dana Tumminello invite you to their 1916-built Virginian manor house located in a peaceful country setting with a spring-fed pond, walking grounds, babbling creek, and in-ground swimming pool. Situated midway between the historic towns of Staunton and Lexington, guests can visit many attractions such as Crabtree Falls and the Blue Ridge Parkway, historic Lexington, Staunton’s theater, renowned wineries, The Virginia Horse Center, Natural Bridge, antique shops, and championship golf which all are within twenty to thirty miles of the property. Conveniently located within a few minutes of Highway 81, the property is ideally located for travelers passing through the state. Or stay a while longer and explore The Valley.
The Manor offers five spacious guest rooms and suites each with gas or electric fireplaces, private baths with double Jacuzzi tubs, and modern amenities. The Inn’s decor offers a warm, relaxing environment that makes guests feel right at home. In addition to the Manor, there are three secluded, romantic cabins on the property. Two of the cabins are located on a ridge above the "high meadow " (as Granny Butler used to call it) with sweeping views of the Shenandoah Valley and Allegheny Mountains in the distance. The third cabin is on the banks of a 1-acre fishing pond with beautiful views of the grounds and neighboring pastures. Each cabin has a hot tub on a private deck and a full kitchen with everything you need to prepare your own meals.
Start your day with early morning coffee from our state of the art espresso machine before enjoying a hearty, first-class plated breakfast made with many local ingredients. Your day can include one or more of the activities in the area, or you may roam the grounds to enjoy views of the pond, cattle grazing in the hillside pastures, the rolling stream, or the swimming pool. Feel free to relax and enjoy warm hospitality during a complimentary early evening social hour featuring local wines and beer along with light appetizers. Top the evening off with dinner at one of the many restaurants just minutes away in Lexington or Staunton. Guests will feel pampered during their stay and well rested when their visit has ended.
