The historic country estate of Mount Welby just 60 miles West of DC (between Middleburg and Little Washington), was built in 1823 and totally restored in 2005. The private house has 6 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths sleeping 10 comfortably. Breakfast and wine tasting are available as are the services of our private chef, daily maid, massage and yoga instructor. Hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hunting, shopping, antiquing and horseback riding are either onsite or just a few moments away. Come and enjoy this home as your very own.

Mount Welby sits majestically atop a hill that overlooks the estate's meadows, a mountain brook, several ponds, gardens and nature trails. Native wildlife (deer, turkey/fowl, etc.) can be easily seen on the property. In the Spring and Summer, wildflowers paint the surrounding meadowlands and mountain ridges. In the fall, the autumn colors are vividly beautiful.

Enjoy the serenity here. Walk the grounds, hike our trails or just sit and relax. Whatever the occasion, Mt. Welby has something for everyone. Check out our website for more information and the calendar below for availability.
