The Martha Washington Hotel and Spa - located in the Blue Ridge Highlands, In 1832 was originally built for a General, then later became a finishing school for girls. The Martha Washington also served as a hospital during the Civil War.
After the war it was converted into a Womens College. In 1935 it was again changed to a Hotel.
Seeing the Hotel was like stepping back in time to the 18th century. Elegant furnishings, and beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Click on pictures to enlarge
