Corporate Events

Virginia is the ideal escape for business meetings, brainstorming sessions or revitalizing retreats.

The natural solitude of this historic, hunt-country estate encourages effective meetings and creative thought. Located just 45 minutes from Washington, D.C., you will find that our spectacular setting will lead to creative ideas and a clear mind to tackle even the most difficult tasks and problem-solving sessions. This bed and breakfast provides lodging and atmosphere for the most discriminating of corporate executives, with bountiful breakfasts, lunches and dinners upon request.

​Circa 1850, the Inn served as a hospital during the Civil War. Recently restored, the Inn has nine rooms for corporate executives, all with their own private baths, most with four-poster canopy beds, Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces. Additional lodging is located only minutes away for executive staff.

Corporate Events
A perfect setting for corporate retreats, our great room, library, dining room and three enclosed sitting porches provide alternatives for meeting places or six separate break-out rooms. Best of all, the totally private flagstone terrace can serve both as a meeting area or breakout area, or the perfect location for a relaxed luncheon or dinner.

Team-building activities include: fishing and floating on the nearby Shenandoah and Rappahannock Rivers; hiking the Appalachian Trail in the Blue Ridge Mountains; wine-tasting at Virginia’s finest wineries as you travel the wine tour route throughout Fauquier County; hot air ballooning; horseback riding; golfing; aviation shows; watching a fox-hunt depart from a nearby manor; steeplechase races in the spring and fall; visiting the many antique, specialty shops and restaurants in nearby Old Town Warrenton; or just plain relaxing!

The Black Horse Inn offers full catering service to provide your group with any style, breakfast lunch or dinner and can arrange for entertainment to top off a most productive day away from the office. Audiovisual and additional equipment rentals can be provided so that any special needs can be met.
