The Blackburn Inn, LLC and Retro Hospitality have announced the opening of Blackburn Inn in Staunton, Virginia.

The 49-room luxury boutique hotel will open in Spring 2018. The building boasts wide corridors and hallway arches, vaulted ceilings and an original wood staircase allowing guests to access the rooftop atrium offering breathtaking 360-degree views of downtown Staunton.

The Blackburn Inn was originally constructed in 1828 by Thomas Jefferson protégé Thomas Blackburn. Interior design firm, A Concept 2 Design was commissioned to develop a design sensitive to key historic components throughout the hotel.

Owner Robin Miller said: "At The Blackburn Inn we will create a home away from home for both guests and visitors and celebrate the history of Staunton and our historic site. We are thankful for both the state and federal historic tax credits which made this project financially feasible."
