An 1898 Classic
In Virginia's Little Switzerland
Come for the Food, Leave as a Friend
Enjoy the elegance and tranquility in Virginia’s Switzerland (Monterey) free of the hassle and gaggle of modern life. We invite you to make Monterey and the Trimble House your headquarters for outdoor sports (skiing, hiking and biking), and for restful relaxation.
Trimble House is a stately Victorian home built in 1898 by C.W. Trimble, a timber merchant. It features wonderful
woodwork throughout — window and door frames, carved oak mantels, wainscoting, and hardwood chestnut floors.
Today, the charming, peaceful and comfortable accommodations decorated with period antiques help you relax
while marveling at Mr. Trimble’s skillful work. You will enjoy your “escape” in one of 3 large bedrooms with full access
to the dining room (originally the ladies’ parlor) and the living room (originally the gentlemen’s parlor).
Trimble House is on the Monterey Historic Tour of Homes. It is nicely situated between Monterey’s Courthouse
on Main Street and the beautifully renovated Highland Center on Spruce Street. Trimble House is within easy walking
distance of restaurants, shops, community events, and Highland Center retreats and conferences. You may also wish
to schedule private events, with or without catering.
Trimble House specializes in 19th Century purities – bountiful breakfasts sourced locally and seasonally
without chemicals and pesticides (or boxes or mixes) but always with a taste of maple syrup. We also pamper you
with natural bedding and toiletries using only healthy ingredients, including pure essential oils. You will never
smell or feel caustic cleaning chemicals.
Trimble House welcomes you home to experience your personal sweet spot reminiscent of the Victorian time period
in Virginia’s “Switzerland.”
