Seekig a nice area/inn for 2-3 nts btwn UVA and DC in April

Active middle-aged couple looking for suggestions for 2-3 nights after a visit to UVA mid-April...between Charlottesville and closer to Dulles airport for return flight. We like gardens/wineries/town to explore after a Skyline Drive day. Nice place/area to stay within easy drive or even better even!-walk to shops/restuarants/galleries?

Any ideas greatly appreciated-thanks!!

Maybe Leesburg, VA? Historic town with lots of antique stores, cafes. etc. And it is at the end of the Dulles Greenway which leads to the Dulles Toll Road.

Middleburg, VA is a quaint neat small town just W of Dulles. The Red Fox has 14 very nice luxury rooms and a great restaurant located right next to the shops in MB. Good luck.

Red Fox Inn and Restaurant @ 2 East Washington Street, Middleburg, VA 540 - 687 - 6301.

Middleburg Country Inn is nice too but I like Red Fox the best. MB is a fun town.

Middleburg Country Inn @ 209 East Washington Street, Middleburg, VA 540 - 687 - 6082.

Red Fox is the most convenient to the shops in MB but Goodstone is really a nice place. It's about 3 miles from town though.

Goodstone Inn and Estate @ 36205 Snake Hill Road, Middleburg, Virginia 540 - 687 - 4645.

Leesburg would be overshooting Dulles if you are coming from Charlottesville. You pass Dulles to get on the Greenway.

Maybe around Warrenton, Virginia or the Culpeper area.

Agreed jwit. I was thinking Front Royal but I haven't been downtown in years so I'm not sure that's a good suggestion.

Middleburg is a charming village set in gorgeous countryside.

In the village itself are several nice restaurants/eateries and plenty of interesting shops.
