Nestled on 40 acres of rolling hills, framed by views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is The Inn at Willow Grove, an award-winning, luxury retreat which opened in 2010. The property, located in the heart of Virginia wine, horse, and Civil War country, 90 minutes from D.C., will unveil a $2 million expansion in September 2017. The expansion will increase the number of rooms, suites and private cottages from 14 to 25. The Inn is also the recent recipient of two Four-Star awards from Forbes Travel Guide for its accommodations and exceptional restaurant and pub, Vintage.
In addition to the new guest rooms, The Inn at Willow Grove will be adding a 3,000 square-foot destination spa in August 2017 that will pamper guests in four treatment rooms. An array of body, facial and massage treatments will grace the spa menu. The two-story facility will also include a fitness center, deluxe locker rooms and a heated outdoor pool. This will be the first destination spa in this region of Virginia.
“We are incredibly thrilled to unveil the expansion this summer and look forward to welcoming and hosting more guests at the Inn,” said David Scibal, who along with wife Charlene Scibal, owns the family-run property. Continued David Scibal: “We are grateful for our loyal guests who have shared word-of-mouth to the extent that we now need more rooms to meet the high demand for bookings. Our guests also shared with us how nice it would be to enjoy spa treatments, so we thought ‘heck, let’s build a gorgeous, state-of-the-art destination spa.’ We will enjoy having the spa as an extra special amenity for our guests.
The new guest rooms and spa join the property’s Vintage Restaurant and Pub, serving up Southern comfort cuisine described as “all dressed up and ready to hit the town.” The restaurant and pub, located in the garden level of the historic Plantation house, feature weekly special menus crafted from local ingredients and perfectly paired with a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine list.
Interior designs throughout the property were curated by Charlene Scibal, whose impeccable eye for detail and unique touches fuse “elegant meets playful” colors, textiles and art work. She will also oversee the design details for the 11 new accommodations and the spa.
Also on site at The Inn at Willow Grove are walking paths leading through gardens, oversized fire pits, butler services for each overnight guest, and an events barn that will accommodate up to 150 people for weddings, corporate retreats and mid-week destination meetings.
