Salamander Resort & Spa

Nestled in the heart of Virginia's wine and horse country, the Salamander Resort & Spa is a stylish gem in the crown of Sheila C. Johnson’s Salamander Hotels & Resorts collection. This upscale retreat, spread over 340 picturesque acres, cleverly mirrors an old Virginia Piedmont mansion, a design inspired by Johnson’s personal home.

The resort's elegant equestrian theme extends throughout its interiors, including its dining establishments. For a taste of local Virginia wines and international cuisine, visit the Gold Cup Wine Bar. Make sure to reserve your appetite for Harrimans, the resort's flagship restaurant. Here, Executive Chef Bill Welch skillfully combines his love for seafood and steakhouse fare with the unique flavors of the Virginia Piedmont region, creating a diverse menu that offers a global gastronomic experience.


A Multitude of Activities at Salamander Resort & Spa


Boredom is a foreign concept at Salamander Resort & Spa. With a wide spectrum of activities available, there's something for everyone. Whether you're keen on a trail ride from the 22-stall horse barn, eager for a treetop canopy tour, or inclined towards unwinding in the expansive 23,000-square-foot spa, your time here will be well spent.


Despite being spread over 340 acres, only 140 acres are developed, leaving vast expanses of land for hiking, biking, and riding trails. The resort is conveniently located near some of Virginia’s finest attractions, enveloped by rolling hills and charming villages. Just a short drive away, you'll find 50 wineries and numerous equestrian events. And if you feel the need to explore beyond the resort, downtown Middleburg is just a seven-minute walk away.


Indoor Pleasures and Culinary Adventures


When the weather turns sour, retreat into the indulgent 23,000-square-foot spa for some pampering. Don't miss the wet areas in the locker rooms for an extra touch of relaxation. The resort also offers year-round culinary classes in its state-of-the-art cooking studio, perfect for food enthusiasts.


With an emphasis on creating a homely atmosphere, the main corridor of Salamander Resort & Spa is designed to feel like a friend's welcoming abode rather than a 168-room hotel. Additional communal spaces include a library filled with books borrowed from the local library over the years.

Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill pays homage to the property's previous owners and serves fresh, seasonal ingredients with a regional twist. Open for breakfast and dinner, as well as Sunday brunch, this signature restaurant welcomes both outside diners and hotel guests. For a more casual setting, the Gold Cup Wine Bar offers lunch and light bites, alongside an impressive sushi menu on weekends.


Luxurious Rooms


Salamander Resort & Spa houses 168 beautifully furnished rooms, each one spacious and equipped with top-notch amenities. With each floor themed by season, the guest rooms and suites exude a warm, welcoming aura. All rooms feature walkout balconies or terraces, ample closet space, and a generous sitting area.

Half of the rooms, including all 17 suites, are adorned with fireplaces, canopied beds, and unique artwork, adding to their homely charm.


Amenities Galore


In addition to its refined accommodations and dining options, Salamander Resort & Spa boasts a range of amenities including a bar, fitness classes, gym, indoor and outdoor pools, meeting rooms, a pet-friendly policy, restaurants, a spa, and tennis facilities. Experience the best of luxury and comfort at this exquisite resort, where every detail is designed for your delight.
