You’re Invited to Relax in a Historic Setting
History buffs appreciate the authentically-restored architecture of the Inn, a circa 1853 carpenter gothic home with original rooms dating back to 1780. Steeped in railroad history, Goshen was a bustling passenger train depot in the 19th Century for tourists visiting our mineral springs. In 1935 daughter Pearl, whose Dad built the home, and her husband JB Wood (town’s RR Agent), hosted Eleanor Roosevelt on her trip to Goshen. Our 1875 barn, the old town livery, was built directly on Mill Creek and makes its vast presence among the Inn’s gardens. Experience the natural and cultural treasures of the Shenandoah Valley from a cozy home-base at the Hummingbird Inn. Once you do, you’ll see why our guests return again and again!
Exploring Like a Local
The big beautiful George Washington National Forest surrounds us. We are 4 doors from the Appalachian Waters Scenic Route 39 Byway and 5 minutes to Goshen Pass (Virginia’s oldest state managed natural area) with activities from nature walks to invigorating hikes, fishing, kayaking and swimming, all in a spectacular rocky mountain gorge. Scenic drives abound in all directions from the Hummingbird taking you to hiking, horseback riding, farm tours, wineries, breweries, antiquing and the cultural offerings of Lexington, Staunton, Clifton Forge, Warm Springs and Hot Springs, then come home to your private retreat or great place to be with family and friends.
Food Lovers – Breakfast & More
In addition to welcoming you to the Inn, sharing its history, the excitement of passing trains, and guiding you through the abundant nearby recreational opportunities, Innkeepers Sandra and Jeff lovingly prepare seasonal, farm-fresh local fare at the Inn’s complimentary two-course country breakfast served daily at 9am. Special diets are happily accommodated with advance notice. And, for “special order with advance notice” we offer picnic lunches to go, dessert/appetizer plate, or a rustic elegant cheese & charcuterie board with wine and handmade chocolates, a nice dinner alternative. “We’re proud to mention our tap water is from a natural spring here in Goshen”
