U.S. News Review

This storied property has served as a private home, a finishing school, a hospital for the Civil War wounded and even as a women's college. Martha has been re-incarnated in present day as an extravagant retreat and spa in Abingdon, near the Virginia-North Carolina state line. And recent guests describe it as elegant enough to pull off its pricey rates. Each of the spacious guest rooms and suites here features slightly different decor, though they all contain sumptuous bed linens and flat-screen TVs (along with complimentary Wi-Fi access, newspaper delivery, morning coffee, valet parking and bicycle rental for a resort fee of $12 per night). Recent guests particularly appreciate extra touches like high-end bath products and complimentary snacks; however, some say the hotel could benefit from offering a few more luxurious amenities. That said, visitors agree that the hotel overly compensates for this with exceptional service. Guests also recommend trying the delectable entrees offered at the on-site eatery, Sister's American Grill.
