Lodging in the Heart of Shenandoah Valley
Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on 50 picturesque acres lies Steeles Tavern Manor Bed & Breakfast. Innkeepers Melissa and Ray Alexander invite you into our 1916-built Virginian manor house located in a peaceful country setting with a spring-fed pond, walking grounds, and babbling creek. Situated midway between the historic towns of Staunton and Lexington, guests can visit many attractions such as Crabtree Falls and the Blue Ridge Parkway, Historic Lexington, Staunton’s theatre, renowned Central Virginia wineries, The Virginia Horse Center, Natural Bridge, antique shops, and championship golf which all are within twenty to thirty miles of our B&B.
The Inn offers five spacious guest rooms and suites each with gas or electric fireplaces, private baths with double Jacuzzi tubs, and modern amenities. The Inn’s decor offers a warm, relaxing environment and has a wine theme throughout the rooms with each guest room named for wine varietals native to Virginia.
Guests are welcomed with Melissa’s STM Signature Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Start your day with our early morning coffee before enjoying our hearty, first-class plated breakfasts made with many local ingredients. Our breakfast sausage and cheeses are from Mountain View Farm located in nearby Raphine. Our bacon and other meats are bought fresh from Donald’s Meat Processing in Lexington. We purchase our fruits, vegetables, and breads from local Farmers Markets in season. And our cinnamon raisin bread used in French Toast is delivered to us from our “local’ Bakery in Pittsburgh PA.
Your day can include one or more of the activities in our area, or you may roam the grounds to enjoy views of our pond, cattle grazing in our hillside pasture, the rolling stream, or our in-ground swimming pool. Feel free to relax and enjoy warm hospitality during our complimentary early evening social hour at our wine bar, featuring local Virginia wines and microbrews along with snacks or appetizers. Top the evening off with dinner at one of the many restaurants just minutes away in Lexington or Staunton.
Our Inn guests will feel pampered during their stay and well rested when their visit has ended.
