Relaxing Stay / Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as pictured. The only thing not pictured is the wonderful hospitality of the owner which far exceeds expectations. We were three women visiting a friend who had moved to the area and this was the perfect choice for us. We felt instantly at home and were even able to host our friend and her family for dinner. The house is stocked with just about everything you need, including snacks and toiletries, which was an unexpected surprise. We enjoyed touring the stable with Virginia as did my friend's little grandson. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Staying at a hotel would never compare to this wonderful property.

So roomy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the House Above the Barn! It was beautiful, roomy, very comfortable and cozy. The fridge and pantry were unbelievably stocked! Virginia is so easy to work with! We used the services of the personal chef. Lisa Thompson provided delicious meals which made our weekend so easy! We also had on-site massages by Oliver Ashe! We all agreed it was the best massage we ever had. A terrific combo of relax and deep tissue work. He knew exactly what was needed! We highly recommend the House Above the Barn, Lisa Thompson, and Oliver Ashe!!! You will not be disappointed!

Exactly what we needed for a couple days out of the city

  • 4 of 5

Truly the room over the barn, if your quiet enough you can hear the horses rustling in the night. We needed a few nights to give everyone including our dog some bigger space for themselves. Bedrooms were large and comfortable. Kitchen was stocked with extras to make things even easier. Virginia was wonderful giving our daughter the opportunity to feed some baby goats!

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the House above the Barn. Virginia made sure everything was just right. From the welcome snacks, to the view of the fields, we loved every part.

There was more than enough room for all of us to enjoy.

Even my mother-in-law loved it, and called it her peaceful spot.

We are all ready to come back for another visit.

Just the Retreat You NEED!

  • 5 of 5

There is just one thing to love about the House Above the Barn at MEA Farm - EVERYTHING!

First, Virginia is the consummate host. She keeps the house well stocked with everything you might expect and a few surprises you might not. I won't tell you the surprises because you'll just have to book with Virginia and discover them for yourself.

A friend/colleague of mine had a few days of events to run in Middleburg - just a 12 minute drive away from MEA Farm. We found The House Above the Barn on a fluke while looking for a hotel and we just couldn't possibly be happier. As hospitality professionals, we are hyper aware of the quality of accommodations and The House Above the Barn is absolutely TOP NOTCH!

With early mornings and late nights ahead of us as we worked these events, this quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle was just what we needed. It's spacious, meticulously clean, chock full of amenities, and some of the best views you could hope for when you take a ride out to the "country." With the neighs of horses to greet you in the morning and the site of them just outside of absolutely expansive windows - you'll feel like you're a hundred miles from the city.

This is THE place. We can't wait to run more events in and around Middleburg so we can come back to stay at the House Above the Barn!
