Classic style in the Blue Ridge foothills

52 Rooms / 38 Suites

Tucked away on 3,300 acres in the rural foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Barnsley Resort offers low-key relaxation in a uniquely historical setting. Thirty-six English cottages, outfitted with private porches, copper claw-foot tubs, wainscoting and wood-burning fireplaces, are arranged in the style of a 19th-century pedestrian village. The secluded comfort creates a casual ambiance at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended resort, and a polo shirt is sufficient for nighttime dining at the Woodlands Grill. Civil War ruins of the home and walking garden that Godfrey Barnsley built in the 1840s for his beloved wife, Julia, have been beautifully restored and lay just beyond outside the village, providing a rich glimpse into an era long gone, and adventure seekers will find plenty of entertainment on the expansive grounds, including a Jim Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course, riding stables, fly-fishing and an 1,800-acre hunting preserve.
