3 Reasons Why Irvington Is the Best Option for Romantic Getaways in Virginia

The Exquisite Cuisine

Anyone who has visited Irvington before can tell you that the cuisine, alone, is reason enough to plan your trip. Our locally harvested oysters along the Rappahannock River will tantalize your taste buds and keep you coming back for more. In fact, our peaceful community is in the heart of where the oyster boom in Virginia first began! Come and indulge with your loved one at our local restaurants, including our very own top-rated restaurant, The Dining Hall. You’ll both fall in love with Chef Meseret Crockett’s creations with fresh, seasonal ingredients. 

Note: Our restaurant offers an intimate table d’hôte fine dining experience like no other. Due to limited seating, we ask that you make reservations ahead of time. Seating is limited to 20 people, but the table is yours for the evening!

The Charming Shops

Are you looking to spend a fun afternoon with your better half? Consider exploring all of the wonderful stores and boutiques throughout Irvington, VA! You’ll have no trouble at all finding the perfect gifts or souvenirs at places like The Dandelion, Jimmy and Sook, Village Needlepoint, and many more. The shopkeepers are always friendly and add a little extra charm to your Northern Neck shopping experience. Also, don’t forget to check out the selection at the Irvington Farmers Market on the first Saturday of the month from May to November. It’s a short walk from our inn!
