Dunleith Historic Inn is converted from a 19th century plantation, and all buildings on the property were built in the late 18th century or mid-19th century.
The 22 guest rooms are divided across three buildings: the elegant main house, historic courtyard and former dairy barn. The guest rooms are individually decorated in a style suited to their building: the spacious Main House rooms are elegantly appointed with period antiques and tester beds, and the cozy Courtyard and Dairy Barn rooms are rustically elegant in keeping with the character of the brick buildings.
The 18th century greenhouse is still used to grow herbs for the restaurant and flowers for the surrounding 40 acres of land. The former poultry house has been converted into the check-in desk and gift shop.
Range of Rates: $185-300/night
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are open to the public in The Castle Restaurant & Pub, a building converted from a carriage house.
Evening cocktails are served daily to house guests at the main house with live piano music every Thursday and Friday. The pool is open for house guests. Historical house tours are available 10am-2pm daily to house guests and patrons of the restaurant.
Although Dunleith is a historical property, its bathrooms and facilities are thoroughly modern and elegant, recently updated in 2012.
Dunleith has multiple venues available for private events and parties, including the main house and courtyard, pool, restaurant and private dining rooms. It frequently hosts weddings, holiday and birthday parties, small conferences and business dinners.
