A Journey Through Wise County's Past

The Inn at Wise, a Timeless Legacy Unearthed

Immerse yourself in the heritage of Wise County, Virginia, where the Dotson Hotel, a precursor to The Inn at Wise, stood tall in the face of change. Following a tragic fire in 1909, local visionaries formed the Wise Hotel Corporate, commissioning the construction of a 22-room hotel in 1910. As ownership changed hands, Herbert Thompson’s stewardship in 1925 marked a pivotal era, transforming the establishment into the iconic Inn we know today.

The Inn at Wise's Journey from Despair to Timeless Charm

Under Herbert Thompson’s transformative leadership in 1925, The Inn at Wise underwent a remarkable metamorphosis. Revamping with eclectic antiques and exquisite art, the establishment bloomed into a hub of sophistication. Fast forward to the 1990s, neglect set in until a dedicated effort by the Wise County Industrial Development Authority breathed life back into this historic beauty, allowing it to stand today as a symbol of timeless charm, crafting new tales for generations to cherish.
