Welcome to the Nineteenth Century Lexington Virginia Inn!

 

Maple Hall Inn, a premier Lexington and Shenandoah Valley dining and lodging destination, is ideally located at Exit 195 on Interstate 81 just five miles north of historic Lexington, Virginia.

 

Maple Hall Inn offers historically gracious accommodations and genuine Southern Hospitality. We welcome dinner and overnight guests to our restored 19th century inn with authentic antebellum period furnishings in all 20 rooms and suites. Most of our rooms have working gas fireplaces. A full, gourmet country breakfast is served every morning.

 

Our Restaurant 1850 menu showcases the bounty of the Shenandoah Valley, following seasonal farm to table specials with an antebellum flare—not too fancy, but with a promise of superior harvest flavors, technique and elegant presentation created by Executive Chef Collin Donnelly, the 2012 Best Small Town Chef (Cooking Light Magazine).

About

 

Maple Hall is a Lexington, Virginia Historic Landmark  Inn listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Greek Revival mansion was built in 1850 by John B. Gibson and named Maple Hill Plantation. The VMI Corps of Cadets marched through the plantation enroute to the epic Civil War Battle of New Market in May 1864. The Guest House, built in 1824, is the oldest residence on the property. 

 

Maple Hall Inn was restored to a historic inn in the mid-1980s and the Pond House constructed in 1990. This Lexington Va inn has operated continually until December of 2012 when the owner passed away. The new owner, Philip Clayton, a Rockbridge County native was raised at Hickory Hill Plantation and the Macky’s Tavern, a 1750 Inn and stagecoach stop in the foothills of House Mountain. He acquired Maple Hall in April, 2014, becoming the third VMI Alumnus to own Maple Hall since its restoration in the 1980s. Philip’s mother, Catherine Clayton, worked as an innkeeper at Maple Hall with the past manager, Don Fredenburg. Philip’s sister, Louisa, was married in the gardens. The Inn reopened in July, 2014.

Cuisine

 

Hearth & Harvest

 

Our goal is to showcase the spirit and gifts of the Shenandoah Valley by using as many farmers, ranchers, and purveyors of local products as we can find. We smoke trout from our pond, use local pork to create an in-house charcuterie program, source local fruits for our in-house pastry program, and bask in the glory of fresh seasonal valley produce. 

 

At Restaurant 1850 we extend the season by canning, jellying, and otherwise preserving as much as we can. We also have a working fireplace in one of the dining rooms and will be exploring the time honored techniques of true hearth cooking. Flowers and herbs will be harvested from our kitchen garden.

 

The wine cellar at Restaurant 1850 features the best of Virginia Wines for perfect pairing with our menu.

 

The dining room is open to the public for dinner, Tuesday through Saturday evenings. We seat 56 guests so reservations are encouraged. 

 

Guests staying at Maple Hall are served a homemade Shenandoah Valley breakfast table daily.
