Briar Patch B&B Inn Wins Six Prestigious Awards

Briar Patch B&B Inn is very proud to announce that we have earned six awards this year from the nation’s top wedding and travel websites and publications, including Wedding Wire, The Knot, Trip Advisor, Washingtonian, Virginia Living, and Leesburg Today.

For the wedding awards, we believe it is our commitment to making each bride & groom’s vision of their special day a reality coupled with our spectacular country setting that results in so many beautiful weddings at Briar Patch and leads to the award winning reviews submitted by our brides and grooms. With our 47 rolling acres, beautiful grounds with pool & hot tub, historic lodging in a 200 year old house & a cottage, great mountain views, & event building for up to 200 guests, we are an ideal location for a getaway, wedding, party, fundraiser, meeting, or retreat.

For the B&B awards, we believe it is our exceptional service, outstanding accommodations, and breathtaking setting with mountain views that set us apart.  We currently offer nine bedrooms in a 200 year main house & separate cottage.  We are in the process of adding three more bedrooms in a new building called the Chicken Coop on the site of a former chicken coop.  The Rooster Room, the Hen Room, & the Chick Suite will have all the modern amenities in a setting that will re-cycle some of the wood from the old building.

Receiving these awards is literally the icing on the cake for us.  After all, our first priority is to delight our guests and, for the wedding couples, to make time spent with their families and friends on their wedding day simple, elegant, and memorable. 

The Briar Patch team thanks all those brides & grooms who voted for us for the wedding awards and all the guests & friends of Briar Patch who helped us win the B&B awards.

Here are the awards we have won this year:
