I had an opportunity to experience Virginia fox hunting through Salamander Resort and Spa. Salamander organized the hirelings, the capping and accompanied us to the meet. It was a glorious day of hunting... hirelings knew their job.. the Warrington Hunt members were remarkable to us. For hunting enthusiasts Salamander provides a fabulous opportunity to hunt the Virginia territory and then come home to the Spa for a Rider's Relief Massage. Nothing could be better!

Thank you for that lovely review and your support of our equestrian program! We are delighted that you were able to enjoy the Middleburg hunt country and experience a relaxing spa treatment afterwards to cap off your day of fun. Our equestrian team is truly passionate about all aspects of horsemanship, the riding, hunting, jumping and love that they can share that with guests such as yourself and even novices too! Again, thank you for kind posting and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

For those of us who live in the Washington Metropolitan area, we have been watching this place being built over the last several years. We’ve watched it start from a spa to a mini-resort, to what it is now, a sprawling oasis amidst Virginia’s wine country and upper class elite. When you arrive to this place, it’s almost like stepping back in time but in the 21st century. From the bell staff to the greeters to the front desk and hotel staff, you have truly arrived in grand style! When you walk into the main lobby, you are immediately taken aback by a huge great room with fireplaces and large windows and doors that lead to an open air veranda overlooking the horse stables and fire pit. Off of the great room is a beautiful mahogany paneled library with some of Ms. Johnson’s personal books – very impressive. If you have an opportunity to walk the property, do walk the corridors of the meeting space. On display is some of the most beautiful and classical pieces of art and tapestries you could ever find all in one place. Now to the rooms. My room was well-appointed with every comfort you could think of to make your stay comfortable. From marble baths complete with claw foot soaking tubs, to cordless phones, fireplaces and overhead reading lamps, to the top of the line linen - no detail was spared. If I had one complaint, it would be the room was not as sound proof as I would have liked. I could hear my neighbors TV and conversation from the bathroom. Otherwise, great comfortable stay.

To the food. We had an opportunity to peruse the menu. As you can expect, it is very expensive. You can skip the $20 sandwiches with 22% surcharge and delivery fees and go downtown Middleburg by hotel shuttle, to the Market Salamander and get if for half the cost. I digress. We did have the opportunity to eat at Harriman’s, on the property, and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff was attentive and served our meals in somewhat of a cirque du solei act. The food was perfectly season and well paired with some of the best Virginia wines.

All in all, this place is absolutely stunning and if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to stay here, do expect to be impressed.

Room Tip: No room is a bad room. Some rooms overlook the front of the property and pool. I had a room that was on the back of the hotel that overlooked the pond and firepit. I personally loved my room location.

We decided to take a day trip from Northern Va for a spa day and we could not have been happier with the service/environment. As soon as we walked in, the staff was there ready to greet us with smiles and helpful hands. We then went to the spa for a treatment and it was fabulous. The staff was welcoming, accommodating and very sweet. The massages were very nice as well. We felt that we were treated like we were the only guests of the day. The spa itself is gorgeous, relaxing and inviting. Joanne was very sweet.

We then had lunch and drinks at the bar there. The food was delicious and we had a WONDERFUL bartender, Nick. He was attentive and very kind. He told us all about how the resort got started and knew a lot of information about the resort itself.

When we decided we needed to leave (sadly) our car was brought up for us promptly and the guys helped clean off our car with all the snow.

As we were leaving, we turned to each other and said, "We will be coming back here again....very soon".
We look forward to spending a night there or two in the near future.

We can't tell you how happy we are with the experience we had today and the fact that this 'heaven on earth' opened up right near DC.

We stayed at this beautiful resort for 3 nights over Thanksgiving, & found it to be to be absolutely delightful. The staff went out of their way to be welcoming and accommodating. My husband & I had a lovely 1 bedroom suite with an adjoining room for our 2 teenage sons. The set-up worked perfectly, we were very comfortable. In fact, my husband loved the pillows on the beds so much that he found the brand and ordered some for our home!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner in the resort restaurant. Our server was very friendly, which added to a very enjoyable meal. The chef was kind enough to prepare a special meal for me in order to accommodate my food allergy.

The concierge, Julie, took care of making the rest of our dinner reservations at local restaurants, and also arranged for mountain bikes for our sons to use one day. They were able to ride all around on the trails at the resort, and had a great day. Again, everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We would love to return to the Salamander Resort & Spa!

Salamander Resort and Spa is a refuge of understated elegance in a bucolic setting. The entrance beckons with stables and an estate worthy of Middleburg's reputation for classic hunt country delight! The service is Southern hospitality with valet parking and a quick check in to this beautiful resort. We fell in love with the warm roaring fires and library as well as our suite, tucked back in the woods with sunset views from our balcony. Room service was yummy and prompt! Risotto appetizer was perfect and the salad so fresh. The steak and fish with sides of fresh grown on the grounds veggies were dynamite! We will definitely return for a spa visit this month. Loved it! Ms. Johnson has the eye of an artist with subtle genteel extravagance in the perfect location!

Room Tip: We had one of only four suites facing the woods, very peaceful!
