The incredible natural beauty of Virginia’s
Piedmont Region is perhaps its most dramatic in Rappahannock County.
Here the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains give way to scenic rolling
hills, rambling streams and rivers, pastureland with grazing cattle,
birding and wildlife trails, and the charm of historic villages
that dot the countryside. Here visitors come to relax, seek outdoor
adventure, enjoy the beauty of a sunrise, sunset, and the brilliant
stars of a country sky. Here also can be found the culture
of live theater, seasonal events, boutique wineries, a distillery,
art and artisans, photography and antique treasures, and gourmet
dining. Steeplechase races and the Virginia hunt are
also a part of the local culture.
Rappahannock County is located in the northwest area of the Piedmont
Region. Along the western ridge of the county lie the Shenandoah
National Park and Skyline Drive, offering nature trails and activities,
dining, and lodging. The historic Town of Washington, founded
in 1799, serves as the county seat and is home to the five-star,
five-diamond Inn at Little Washington. Nearby is Sperryville, located
along the picturesque Thornton River at the foot of the Blue Ridge
Mountains. Founded in 1820, this farm village is known for its
old time charm. The village of Flint Hill also offers dining, antique
and specialty shops. Other small villages include Amissville, Boston,
Castleton, Huntly, Scrabble, and Viewtown, each with its own history
