Brierley Hill Bed and Breakfast – About Us

A Shenandoah Valley Bed and Breakfast in Lexington, Virginia
Brierley Hill Bed and Breakfast was built in 1993 as a quiet Shenandoah Valley haven for the weary traveler, or a romantic getaway from the workaday world. Named for the antique clock that graces the entryway, this lovely Lexington, Virginia inn is the epitome of laid-back luxury and Southern grace.

Nature Abounds in the Virginia Shenandoah Valley
Being on the outskirts of the Shenandoah Valley, nature is ever-present at our country inn. You will likely see deer crossing the lower fields in the early morning and enjoy the antics of the mockingbirds. Perhaps the foxes will make an appearance during your stay. If you visit between April and October, our hummingbirds will delight you. They flit in and out of the verandah posts, dipping into the feeders and chasing one another around and around.

Songbirds are everywhere — a portion of the front field is left wild to encourage them, and feeders by the garden keep them coming back. The chipmunks also like the feeders; they steal the sunflower seeds and plant them in the garden for our enjoyment in late summer.

Southern Hospitality: Lexington B&B Style
Afternoon beverages and cookies on the verandah are a special summer treat. Refreshments are always available from the hutch in the sitting room on the second floor. To help you stay connected with friends and loved ones, we offer free Wi-Fi throughout the inn.

About the Garden
The Brierley Hill garden supplies a wealth of ingredients for the table. Neat and tidy most of the year with raised beds and gravel paths, it overflows in the summer with an abundance of juicy tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, cucumbers, an abundance of flowers, herbs, and more. Guests are welcome to wander the pathways and pull a weed or two.
