The Ashby Inn & Restaurant

The Ashby Inn & Restaurant is located in the quiet village of Paris, Virginia. Just one hour west of Washington, DC, the inn is at the very center of our country's dynamic first century. From George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette to Stonewall Jackson and John Mosby, the village has played an integral part in the lives of those who shaped America. The inn's guest rooms vary in size and decor. Each is furnished with 19th-century pieces, including four-poster beds, hand-painted wardrobes, quilts, oriental rugs and blanket chests. Four rooms have wood burning fireplaces. Outside the inn, you will find Adirondack chairs, long manicured lawns lined with beautiful perennial flower beds and the Inn's vegetable and cutting gardens.
