About the Innkeepers
Smithfield Farm Bed & Breakfast is a special place to vacation. The innkeepers Ruth and Betsy, a mother and daughter team, are committed to making sure that it will be special for you. Ruth's son Forrest concentrates on building a viable and highly regarded grass fed meat operation on the working farm called Smith Meadows Meats. The manor house has been in Ruth's family nearly 200 years, and many generations of guests have been welcomed. Our family is pleased to welcome you.
The Bed & Breakfast is located in the Northern Shenandoah Valley, which is easily accessible from the DC metropolitan area. The farm is 3 miles from a major highway, but the short drive transports you to a place of natural beauty and serenity.
The Bed & Breakfast is a labor of love. For 11 years prior to its opening in 1999, Ruth and her late husband, Ed, spent virtually every weekend restoring the main house, out buildings and grounds to their present grandeur. The manor house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are looking forward to celebrating Smithfield's bicentennial anniversary of continued family farming in 2016.
