In the time of the Lees, travelers to the Northern Neck would have been assured of finding a warm welcome, a good bed and fine meal at Stratford Hall. Today the Inn at Stratford Hall carries on this tradition of Lee hospitality by welcoming individuals, families, and groups to this serene and special place. Built by Thomas Lee in the 1730s, Stratford Hall is one of the great houses of American history. Four generations of the Lee family passed through its stately doors, including two signers of the Declaration of Independence, Richard Henry Lee and Francis Lightfoot Lee, Revolutionary War hero “Light Horse Harry” Lee and his son, Civil War General Robert E. Lee, who was born at Stratford in 1807.
