Established in 1728, the Red Fox Inn and Tavern stands at the crossroads of Middleburg, Virginia, a historic village in the foothills of the Blue Ridge and Bull Run mountains. Situated in a valley steeped in the lore of both the Revolutionary and the Civil Wars, the Red Fox Inn and Tavern carries on traditions of days past by providing locals and travelers with a timeless setting. Here they can gather in the village, and enjoy hearty meals and rich conversation while experiencing the allure of the 18th century.
Throughout the years, the Inn has been used for numerous notable events and remains a popular destination for anyone seeking a romantic hideaway in the heart of Hunt Country. The J.E.B. Stuart Room once served as the stage for a rare press conference by President Kennedy and as a meeting room for hopeful Democrats hosted by Ambassador Pamela Harriman, a local foxhunting resident. Elizabeth Taylor often graced the Tap Room both during the courtship and after her marriage to a local gentleman, Senator John Warner. The lovely and kind Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis frequently stayed at the Inn during foxhunting holidays each fall.
Over the past four decades, the Red Fox Inn and Tavern has been owned and operated by three generations of the Reuter family. Currently managed by Matilda Reuter and Jonathan Engle, the couple took over operations in 2008. Combining their passions for regional history, local food and attentive customer service, they enjoy welcoming friends and guests to the Inn and Tavern.
