In 1951, the founder of Marriott International, J. Willard Marriott Sr., discovered a beautiful piece of the Blue Ridge foothills that reminded him of his boyhood days on the family farm in Utah.
After buying the property, he meticulously began to restore the primary historic buildings, their surrounding grounds and continued to purchase contiguous parcels of land including Fiery Run Ranch, creating the 4200+/- acre Marriott Ranch.
The Inn at Fairfield Farm is a historic Virginia Bed & Breakfast located near the center of the Marriott Ranch's 4,200 acres. Guests staying at the Inn at Fairfield Farm are welcomed with a complimentary tray of delicious cheeses (4 - 6 P.M.) along with an assortment of refreshing beverages. In the morning, a memorable hearty country breakfast is served, generally between 8 - 10 A.M.
Apr. 1st through Nov. 1st

"The Marriott sends out its catering staff to create a phenomenal buffet of thick, juicy, well-marinated tender steaks, barbecue chicken, corn pudding (to die for), salad, homemade dinner rolls and cornbread rolls (sweet and moist), baked beans."
"The head chef met us upon our arrival. He was very friendly and recommended additional wineries to check out."
