Hummingbird Inn

Country hospitality abounds at the Hummingbird, in the little railroad town of Goshen, just up the road from Goshen Pass – a breathtaking Rocky Gorge formed by the passage of the Maury River. We are in the Shenandoah Valley near Lexington, Staunton, and Warm Springs.

We offer relaxing and romantic accommodations, mixed with comfort and modern amenities along with stories of the rich history of our 1853 Victorian Carpenter Gothic Inn.

Relax on the wide verandas, in the sunny solarium, on the cozy down cushioned sectional in the living room, or the warm rustic den and stone fireplace built in 1780. Stroll through the gardens down to the old livery stable, or listen to the babble of Mill Creek on the deck. Watch the antics of our hummingbirds during the summer season, or settle in next to one of our fireplaces for a quiet winter afternoon. Nestled in a little railroad town, (Train lovers can be guaranteed a train will pass in front of the inn sometime during their stay.)

Plus we’re Pet-Friendly, $20 per night, per dog. Please call for room availability.

A great place for reunions, small intimate weddings, or that special occasion getaway to celebrate an anniversary, babymoon or other special event. Let us take care of the details and pamper you so you may relax and enjoy your visit!

We take Breakfast seriously at the Hummingbird Inn. Included with your stay is a full country breakfast served each morning at the communal table in our Dining Room. A yummy nibble for your coffee can be found on the Tea & Coffee Bar prior to Breakfast. Guests often take to their favorite spot to enjoy alone or with others. At 9:00 am we serve a seated 2 course breakfast that typically starts with seasonal fresh fruit, our famous Yogurt Parfaits or Crepes. In the winter we include warm starters such as Broiled Grapefruit or Baked Apple and Cranberry Gratin. The main course is hearty in itself and may be sweet, savory or a little of both. Among the most popular main courses include Spinach and Tomato Frittata, Southwest Egg Bake, Salmon Quiche, Eggs Florentine Casserole, Eggs Benedict, Roasted Potatoes, Crispy Hash Browns, Blueberry French Toast, Cherry Griddle Cakes, Ricotta Pancakes, Fried Virginia Ham, Oven Roasted Bacon or Grilled Bratwurst.

All dietary restrictions are accommodated with advance notice. We make a wonderful tofu scramble and grilled vegetables for our vegan guests!

Hummingbird Inn offers a variety of ‘little extras’ for you to enjoy – Picnics, Wine, Cheese & Chocolate platter, an Antipasto Dinner Platter & Dessert; even a special celebration cake – making it a great way to start your weekend.

Rooms are furnished with individual air conditioners, even though our mountain location guarantees cool evenings in even the warmest months. Amazingly soft linens and cozy towels, down comforters, fireplaces in every room, jacuzzi tubs in some, thick fluffy robes and ceiling fans are provided for your comfort. In the den you will find information on area activities, games to play at the Inn and a refrigerator stocked with water, sodas and juices. We offer WiFi throughout the house and Internet radios in every guest room. Complimentary snacks and a 24 hour Tea & Coffee Bar are provided for your pleasure.

Get away from the hectic schedules, busy days and come to the Hummingbird to relax! Enjoy the beautiful Nature that abounds in all directions and allow us to pamper you. See why our guests return time and again.
