Stratford Hall is located in Westmoreland County in the historic Northern Neck of Virginia. In the time of the Lees, travelers to the Northern Neck would have been assured of finding a warm welcome, a good bed and fine meal at Stratford Hall. Today the Inn at Stratford Hall carries on this tradition of the Southern hospitality by welcoming individuals, families, and groups to this serene and special place. Built by Thomas Lee in the 1730s, Stratford Hall is one of the great houses of American history. Four generations of the Lee family passed through its stately doors, including Richard Henry Lee and Francis Lightfoot Lee, the only two brothers to sign the Declaration of Independence, Revolutionary War hero ''Light Horse Harry'' Lee, and his son, Civil War General Robert E. Lee, who was born at Stratford in 1807. Nestled in the woods, our guest rooms encourage you to disconnect from the modern world and reconnect with nature and the past. The rooms in our two guest houses are tastefully appointed with modern fabrics, colors and up-to-date bathroom amenities and feature spacious central living rooms. Each and every day, you will have a clean, accommodating room with access to a 'living room' with TV and comfortable seating for gathering with other travelers. The staff will help you to fully experience this small corner of the world, from educational tours of the Great House to hikes along our miles of trails and fossil hunting on our beach. Our Restaurant has been a local attraction for nearly 80 years. Our skilled chefs create fusions on many traditional local dishes with a contemporary flair that offers something to please everyone. Weddings, group meetings and corporate retreats can be comfortably accommodated in private rooms of the Restaurant or elsewhere on grounds. Located only ninety minutes from Washington D.C. or Richmond .The nearest airports are Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, approximately 75 miles from Stratford Hall and Richmond International Airport, approximately 80 miles from the property. Stratford Hall provides a scenic and unspoiled setting bounded by over two miles of Potomac River shoreline and nearly 2,000 acres of fields and forests. Guests are encouraged to explore this wonderful property on foot, by bike or boat.

We stayed overnight at the Astor House. It was extremely clean and very nicely decorated. There were six separate rooms each having a private bathroom. The rooms shared a kitchen, a dining room and a very nicely appointed living room. There was another couple staying the night, but our paths never crossed. Because we stayed on the Stratford property, we were given a free pass for the grounds and a very substantial discount on the Great House, Stratford Hall.

We rented a one bedroom cabin for a weekend get-away. The cabin was rustic but nicely outfitted and very comfortable. The grounds were very nice and the staff we encountered were all wonderful. We would definitely go again and would recommend it!

We stayed at The Astor guest house in two of the six guest rooms. Each spotless room and private bath adjoins a common sitting area, a dining room and a kitchen. It is a little crowded when all of the guest rooms are occupied, but we met some nice people and were out of the house for most of the day. It is really wonderful to stay on the grounds of Stratford. There is nice walking, fossil hunting and biking onsite. Plus, there are some state parks and cute towns close by. I would definitely return.

The Inn at Stratford Hall was a wonderful place for our family reunion, we booked all six rooms at the Astor House, which we were more than pleased with, the rooms were perfect and the common areas were great for visiting and dining together. We also booked three rooms in the Cheek Guest House which were just as great as Astor. We did do most of our time in the Astor House as it was just our family in that Guest House. We all enjoyed our breakfast each morning in the Dining Room at Stratford Hall and we loved having access to the grounds and beach. Most of our group took the Great House tour which was so interesting and informative. We all left saying we have to do this again at the Inn at Stratford Hall.

This is a very special place for many reasons. And the food is one of them. I had business in the area and stopped just for lunch. The service was nice, the room very special. The opportunity to dine on good food in such a historical place only adds to the charm. I had the Shrimp and Grits filled by the ice cream pie. Outstanding. If you have the chance the Ham and Biscuits are also traditional fare. It is the Biscuits that make it great. Also the Chef came out personally to thank us and ask if everything was alright, a nice touch. It is so nice when you feel like your not just a ring on the register. The personal touch that makes it great.

I booked this room for an elderly friend who was coming into town for my son's high school graduation. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was beautiful. The room was equipped with modern updates. The stay was enjoyable. She really enjoyed the breakfast the next morning and the wonderful people that she sat with. I will highly recommend The Inn at Stratford Hall.

You are in the sticks so if you want it - take it with you. We had 5 couples so the "stories" took center stage. There is a nice big deck or a very nice "gathering room". Never could get the TV to work but who cares? The rooms are just a cut above Comfort Inn with smaller bathrooms, I mean cozy. The breakfast was adequate - I'm glad I didn't get served it at a restaurant, I would have sent it back. If you're the history buff and there to see Stratford Hall, stay here just for the conviencience.

Our accommodations were as good as we have ever experienced other than five star facilities. Staying on the grounds was a pleasant surprise to us as did not know that it was available at the time we were planning our visit. Would highly recommend this stay for anyone visiting Stratford Hall or elsewhere in Westmoreland County.

We stayed at the Inn, not the cabins available during the summer. Our room was comfy and nicely decorated, and the bathroom had no shortcomings. The room included access to a small kitchen with fridge and microwave and a big living room, with flat screen TV, and lots of comfy couches- these rooms shared with all guests. However, in late September, there was only one other couple lodging. The shortcomings have to do with stays after labor day, when most tourists and visitors are gone for the season. (1) the dining hall was only open for lunch, not even breakfast. (2) As a substitute, each guest got a 'breakfast box' of cereal, egg, milk, o.j. and little processed sweet rolls. (3) there is no overnight manager on site- any problem requires a phone call. (4) there is no discount on the room rate for the after season limited services we encountered. I think a $40 or $50 drop in the room rate would have been appropriate for this low season. Incidentally, we found that most 'Northern Neck' shops, antique stores, museums and restaurants are only open Thurs through Sat, off season. Plan accordingly.
