Six sweet Culpeper stays



Looks are deceiving, I’ve found. A relatively inconspicuous door between Thyme Market and The Copper Fish opens for the one with a key, and luxury awaits at the top of the stairs.

Thyme Inn offers finely appointed rooms situated above Thyme Market and The Copper Fish, overlooking Davis Street and an alley where patrons dine below. The Sage room is cozy with a gas fireplace, fine antique furniture on original wide plank hardwood floors, a Jacuzzi tub, and interesting plaster-over-brick walls that merge the past into the present. Large solid doors feature shiny brass knobs and locks, and a transom above allows light to dance between the spaces.

Conversely, the Italian room is so large that it doubles as an event venue. A reception of 40 friends and family can easily be accommodated within the room and on the private terrace. It’s easy to imagine a wedding celebration in this beautiful expanse.

Additional amenities for each room include robes and slippers, plush towels, fine linens, and flat screen television with satellite programming. The convenience of dining options below and shopping all around can’t be beat.

Traveling for business? Two modern executive suites featuring separate bedroom and living area with fully functional kitchen are available.


What appears to be a storefront at the end of E. Davis Street is actually a boutique hotel. The six Suites at 249 are fresh and modern, embracing the industrial feel of the brick walls kept as aesthetic features, and allowing huge floor-to-ceiling windows to flood the rooms with light. Wrought iron balconies complete with bistro table and chairs beckon you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the green space below. Be sure to get a photo with Reel LOVE before leaving town. You’ll know it when you see it.

Families will find the comfortable Sole Suite to be a great home base for exploring Culpeper as two king beds accommodate four people. For a more intimate experience, request the Acqua, Terra, or Verde Suites offering gas fireplaces and steam showers.

Two main floor suites are accessible for handicapped guests or those who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground. Both Violetta and Sienna have a king feather bed with Italian linens and feature a gas fireplace.


Main Street is where you’ll find Culpeper Center & Suites, a sister property of Suites at 249 offering three suites with the same fine service. The Studio Suite is an interior abode with a calming, cool color palette urging you to relax. The Luxury Suite and Luxury Suite with Kitchenette are classy, contemporary spaces. All three offer queen beds; the kitchenette suite includes a gas fireplace. A bonus is the proximity of food. Flavor on Main, a ‘20s and ‘30s themed restaurant with pressed tin ceilings, a gorgeous bar, and inspiring Prohibition cocktails is within the building.


One block off of Main and six blocks from Davis Street is Fountain Hall Inn Bed & Breakfast on S. East Street. The B&B features six well-appointed rooms with private baths, two of which are suites and another is suitable for a family with well-behaved children. Enjoy a cottage feel when you book the Butler’s Suite. Its private entrance and porch open to the garden, and the hydro-therapeutic tub will release any tension you brought along. For a great second story porch view, ask for the Chelf Room. A heart-healthy breakfast will get your day rolling along.


Culpeper County is alluringly pastoral. Rolling hills with stories to tell and working farms that are generations old provide a beautiful welcome to life away from the city.

The six Poet Suites at 10-acre Walden Hall in Reva - 10 minutes from downtown Culpeper – are spacious, breathtaking, and all uniquely styled from one another. Truth be told, it’d be hard to choose which I would prefer, but here are some bits of knowledge about a few of the suites that may help guide you.

The Walt Whitman Grande is nothing short of stunning with its glamorous textures. Often reserved as a honeymoon suite, it’s decadent with space, including a private second story porch and two person hot tub. A more intimate reprieve is The Longfellow Loft where you can tuck away for days. You might be hard-pressed to ever get out of the custom in-room Jacuzzi, but perhaps a cool down in the rain shower will be a welcome change at some point.

Families may be drawn to The Emerson Pool Suite, which is actually a standalone apartment with all of the amenities of home. Walk out onto the saltwater pool patio and grill dinner; everything you need for a great time is at your fingertips. Emerson is also pet friendly!
