If you plan to fly, the closest airport is the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport (SHD) (approximately 15 miles from the hotel); however, there are few flights so you may wish to consider alternatives. The regional airport is convenient, but it will be cheaper to fly into one of the following airports:

  • Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport (CHO), 45 miles from the hotel
  • Roanoke Regional Airport (ROA), 86 miles from the hotel
  • Richmond International Airport (RIC), 116 miles from hotel

There are no shuttles from these airports but all have car rental options on site.

Another option is to travel by train. Staunton is served by AMTRAK from both Philadelphia and Washington DC.
