Maple Hall is one of the most imposing ante-bellum residences in Rockbridge County, displaying a sophisticated rendering of the Greek Revival style. Maple Hall was built in 1855 for John Beard Gibson, one of the county’s more well–to-do residents, who owned several small farms in northern Rockbridge County and was the proprietor of milling and distilling operations at Timber Ridge and at Jordan’s Point near Lexington.
Maple Hall was lovingly restored and renovated in 1985 by the Meredith family to serve as a Country Inn. The Merediths have owned the property since that time. The home now boasts a dining room, commercial kitchen, office, inn keeper’s quarters and 13 guest rooms, each with private baths. The Inn is fully and tastefully furnished with period antiques, which will be sold with the real estate. Complementing the Inn complex is a swimming pool, tennis courts, pond and hiking trails. There are a total of 22 guest rooms in the entire complex.
The Guest House was built around 1820 and was a two over two, three-bay dwelling. It now has three guest rooms on two levels. The downstairs guest room has a living area and kitchen, and can serve as the owner’s quarters.
The Pond House was built in 1986 with careful attention to architectural compatibility with the original buildings. The Pond House is a three story structure with six guest rooms. Each room has a private bath. Three covered decks overlooking the pond and the surrounding countryside.
