Welcome to The Copper Lantern Inn

Welcome to the Copper Lantern Inn, an exquisitely restored historic home located in the heart of Abingdon, Virginia. Come and experience the warmth of true southern hospitality in this relaxed and intimate setting.

Sit on the wide front porch and swing or rock as the horse-drawn carriage ride passes right in front of the Inn. In the distance you can hear the train whistle as it makes its appointed run. You can read and enjoy a refreshment, or you might be ready to start out and explore historic, charming Abingdon, known for its art and ambience. Walk the short two or three blocks to town and visit the numerous antique shops, the Art Depot and several fine restaurants. The centerpiece of Abingdon is the world famous Barter Theatre, a treat for all theater buffs and only steps away from the Inn. With advance notice, your hosts will be happy to offer a package deal which includes the room, two tickets and breakfast.

If you have the time and the inclination, hike or bike the beautiful Virginia Creeper Trail. Bike rentals and the start of the trail are only two blocks away- you can even be driven to the summit, and coast back to town! Close by, there is fishing, horseback riding and Holsten Lake for boating. We proudly offer the Copper Lantern Inn as a comfortable, yet elegant stay while you enjoy all that Abingdon has to offer.
