— Whether you’re looking to share a good meal, zip through the trees, enjoy a glass of fine wine or just get away from it all, Middleburg is the perfect destination for Mother’s Day. Here we round up some of our favorite picks for what to do in Middleburg to celebrate mom!
“We love coming here. The kids love coming to Salamander,” said Katy Tyrrell, executive director of the Middleburg Community Center. “There’s always something for them to do to be entertained — inside, outside, going down to see the horses, going for a little hike, messing with the chess set.”
Goodstone Inn & Restaurant is having a special Mother’s Day dinner on Sunday, May 14, beginning at noon.
The four-course menu includes items such as chicken liver mousse, asparagus vichyssoise, red mizuna and corn shoots, poached spring vegetable, pan seared grouper, Roseda Farms dry aged New York strip loin, chocolate pots de crème, strawberry short cake and more.
The cost is $89 per person or $45 per child under 10 (not including wine, alcohol, tax and gratuity). Seatings are limited and available by reservation only, so please call 540-687-3333 today to make your reservations.
Why not try something new for Mother’s Day? Moms zip free all day long on Mother’s Day at Empower Adventures with a paying family member. You can traverse the 20-acre course while learning about our area’s flora and fauna, and you might even see a family of deer, various birds or other critters along the way. For reservations, please call 540-692-9471. Or, give mom the gift of adventure by giving her a gift certificate to Empower Adventures.
If you want to keep things simple, why not pack a picnic lunch and head to the Middleburg Community Center? The center’s grounds have two playgrounds (one for tots and one for elementary-aged kids), a beach volleyball court, a baseball field and plenty of open space for the kids to run around, so it’s easy to keep them entertained.

“A great Mother’s Day in Middleburg would start the evening before with a night at Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast,” said Emily Crawford of 50 West. “With the beautiful surroundings, spending a night there would allow for any mom to rest and relax. We’d then have the opportunity to enjoy Middleburg’s great shops and possibly stop at a local winery or two!”
Treat mom to a day of relaxation at the spa at Salamander Resort. She’ll glide from the whirlpool to a massage to a steam shower and more. Indulge her with a blissfully restorative facial, deeply rejuvenating signature massage or hot stone treatment.
The 23,000-square-foot spa and wellness center features an infinity-edge spa pool with poolside cabanas, as well as a full-service salon featuring hair, make-up, manicure and pedicure stations.
