In 2001, following a two-decade career in the finance industry, innkeeper Ellen Goldberg purchased the historic northern Virginia farm that would become the Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Inn. The property required extensive TLC and the 1800's farmhouse soon became a labor of love. After a year of renovations, the inn opened and began to attract travelers as well as wedding parties that appreciated the unique scenery and character of the estate. A few years later, the Fox Den—a 200-person reception hall—was underway as interest in indoor weddings and events grew. Briar Patch continues to expand to include new guest rooms and features for the guests of bed and breakfast and attendees of events. Ellen enjoys welcoming guests to her home and hopes they get as much enjoyment out of the property as she does.
