Flint Hill is a census-designated place (CDP) in Rappahannock County, Virginia, United States. The population as of the 2010 Census was 209. It is located on Route 522, approximately 2 miles to the east of the border of the Shenandoah National Park.

The linear and compact shaped village includes agricultural buildings, residential dwellings, churches, and schools, representing a variety of architectural designs, such as Greek Revival, Italianate, Gothic revival, Craftsman, and Federal.

Most of the village, including a two-mile stretch of Route 522 between Wilson Branch Creek and Ben Venue Road and portions of several side streets, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 as the Flint Hill Historic District. The Caledonia Farm and the Flint Hill Baptist Church are also separately listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just to the north of the town is the campus of Wakefield Country Day School, a private school founded in 1972 which serves Rappahannock County and the surrounding community.
