Lexington, Va., is full of historic buildings, and colonial charm. Once home to hero-generals Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E Lee, and still home to the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington has been a place of American military history. If that isn’t reason enough to visit Lexington, we have 5 reasons you should stay at this Lexington, Va., boutique inn for your next visit.
1. Historic Charm Down to the Doorknobs.
The Sheridan Livery Inn & Restaurant has undergone extensive renovations to add modern amenities (aka wifi, running water, you know; the works) to this 1887 livery stable once owned by John Sheridan. The now retired owners Ugo and Gina Benincasa have taken extra care to freshen up the property while still preserving the colonial-style charms of the 1800’s. The large rooms boast 12′ ceilings, heavy mahogany doors, and windows with breathtaking views of downtown Lexington. Read more about our history here.
