Since it opened in June 2018, the Blackburn Inn and Conference Center has been a way to relax and refresh. The inn sits on the peaceful 80-acre Villages at Staunton complex, and visitors can easily walk to Staunton’s bustling downtown. The original site was designed in the early 1800s by Thomas Blackburn, a protégé of Thomas Jefferson. The Inn now houses luxurious modern rooms with historical details and extensive amenities. Now, the new Spa at the Blackburn has opened and guests can treat themselves to an array of relaxing, rejuvenating, and tranquil experiences.
Designed to offer a peaceful escape from everyday life, the Spa at the Blackburn extends over two floors and three treatment rooms in one of the updated historic structures on the Blackburn campus. Licensed professionals perform all services in a relaxing atmosphere. Every detail in the spa has been thoughtfully designed to balance comfort and retain the historic charm of elements like red brick and classical moldings. Even the manicure tables are crafted from 200-year-old reclaimed wood from the Villages campus.
