At The Martha, when you walk through the front door you might actually believe you’ve stepped back in time to the 19th Century. The fine touches and tasteful décor make you feel as if you’re entering a stately old home. Indeed, you are. Originally a mansion built for General Preston and his family, the buildingwas purchased and turned into an upscale college for young women.  It was named Martha Washington College in honor of the first lady of our nation, though it was affectionately called “The Martha” by locals.

The Martha is Abingdon’s most famous hotel and a treasured landmark, known for impeccable service and its world-class spa treatments. Read more about the hotel at
