With tears welling in her eyes and a big smile on her face, Culpeper resident Linda Willoughby watched as auctioneer Stephen Karbelk opened the bidding on her property, The Inn at Kelly’s Ford.

In less than five minutes, the sprawling estate in Eastern Culpeper County sold to Javed Aizaz, of Baltimore, for $2.53 million, which includes a 10 percent buyer’s fee on his winning bid of $2.3 million.

“I’m a little shocked right now,” Aizaz’s son, Omar, said when Karbelk tapped his pen on the lectern and announced, “Sold!”

The 138-acre property lies just across the Rappahannock River from Fauquier County.

In regards to my last post, it is my honest opinion. I am sure plenty of others feel similar after having worked at the Inn under past management. Thank you for the legal advice though

Time to air the dirty laundry again I see. Be careful what you say "Sofauquierresident", or at least put "in my honest opinion" so there isn't a possibility of getting sued for libel. Your description of yourself and family will be easy to trace.

I'm usually not one to post but the selling of this fine property gives me great happiness. Rest In Peace to Mr. Willouhgby who was a great man, however Linda Willouhby was an awful employer!! I worked at Kelly's ford on two different occasions, the last time back in 2015 almost caused me to file a Class A lawsuit after parting ways. Her turnover rate was impressive to say the least. This woman would fire people just because she "felt" like it. My family has lived in southern fauquier for over 3 generations and run a successful business. We all refused to go to the inn as of the summer of 2015 after Linda proved to be a heartless business owner. We are happy to return to this establishment following the auction of the Inn and Linda no longer being in charge. The amount of stories that will now be brought to light will show how awful Mrs. Willouhby treated loyal employees. The amount of employees she caused financial harm to just because she woke up with an awful hangover is horrendous. C'est la vie Mrs. Willouhby! R.I.P Bill.
