Florence Elston Inn & Conference Center

When you turn off the main highway and wind your way toward The Florence Elston Inn & Conference Center, the only traffic you're likely to encounter is a resident herd of whitetail deer crossing the road or perhaps a red-tailed hawk gliding by overhead.

As you drive beneath a canopy of century-old hardwoods it seems you've left one world and entered another, if only for a while.

Because The Elston Inn is located on the spectacular 3,250-acre campus of Sweet Briar College, native wildlife and foliage are only part of the ambience. Add to that exquisite food and superb service, elegant reception halls and lounges, and you've got the ingredients for an unforgettable event.
