Welcome to our home - Relax, Enjoy, Stay Awhile

It is with great anticipation that The Blue Door kitchen & inn has prepared for your visit. As you walk through the Blue Door entrance, we invite you to step into our serene and charming estate to experience upscale casual dining and secluded accommodations in the heart of rural Rappahannock, Virginia. Our historic Flint Hill estate has much to offer in charm, beauty and elegant simplicity.

Chef Andrea has partnered with local farms and markets to fill our kitchen with fresh, seasonal ingredients.  We welcome you to enjoy a meal prepared not just with skill, but with "finesse" (the Washington Post). Pair it with one of our fine wines, or better yet, end the night with a relaxing stay in one of The Blue Door inn's fabulous rooms.

Specialty cocktails are offered at the bar where you can also enjoy the view of our patio and garden whether before or after dinner.

We look forward to sharing our beautiful five-acre country estate with you. Our blue door is always open.
