We enjoyed our visit to Natural Bridge, and would recommend Herring Hall. It was quiet, clean, comfortable, safe, beautiful, and interesting. The breakfast was wonderful, and we would love to stay there again in the future.
Melissa and Ray are very gracious hosts. We stayed a night in the Chardonnay room and a night in the Ivy cabin. Melissa and Ray offered suggestions for things to do, where to dine, and wineries to enjoy. The breakfast at the B&B was outstanding. We liked the French toast Melissa made so much we asked for the recipe. This was our first B&B experience. The Chardonnay room is on the first floor it has a sitting room and a large walk in shower. the bedding is soft and comfortable.We enjoyed the private hot tub at the cabin and the king four post bed.
We don't stay at many bed and breakfasts, but this one is definitely worth a return visit. It was perfectly located for our purpose. Their directions were spot on, their hospitality amazing, their breakfast delicious, and the room was gorgeous, as was the whole house.
The Inn was well maintained and Melissa and Ray were great hosts. The rooms were what he had expected. We had stayed in Petit Verdot Suite and it had a nice sitting room along with a spacious bath and gas stove. The Inn is close to hiking, vineries and two great little town of Lexington and Staunton VA. Melissa's breakfast...
We came here to get away for our 10 year wedding anniversary and to visit the local winery/brewery and we also caught a movie. We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of the area as well as the beautiful view! The cottage was clean and cozy! We enjoyed a nice long relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub in our cottage and enjoyed the downtime we took! Will certainly consider coming back in the future!:)
I was looking for a place to spend a few days of my daughter's spring break. We found Applewood on-line and had the best few days. Linda, Chris and the Llama's are great! I am looking forward to another trip through Virginia so I can stay again.
We've stayed at Sugar Tree Inn twice now and have enjoyed it each time. We've stayed in Sugar Tree Country, located upstairs in the lodge and in Skyline, one of the Queen rooms in the Log Cabin. The accommodations are great, with a simulated rustic look, but featuring modern amenities. The views are great, although you may be surprised to find yourself "in the clouds" occasionally. Jeff and Becky are friendly hosts, providing all the services and information needed for a pleasant stay, while remaining unobtrusive at other times. They produce amazing breakfasts and dinner meals... Feasts for the tummy and the eyes. The Inn is convenient to some historic towns, with interesting shops, wineries, scenic drives and great hikes, such as the one to Crabtree Falls. Check the Sugar Tree Inn out... You will be pleased.
A perfect warm place to spend a cold rainy afternoon and evening in February. The scenic view from the top of the hill was well worth the breezy walk. Nice breakfast on a quiet morning with two very friendly Innkeepers. Paul and Lisa
This is a unique property, with large comfortable bedrooms and full baths. The views, solitude, and Llamas on the property take away any stress you are hoping to shed. A short 4 miles from historic Lexington and near many VA wine makers, etc. you can access this B&B from several pathways. Chris and Linda are very helpful and care for your needs. Being pet friendly is a great plus!! I visited during the off season mid- week and was the only guest. Linda's lovely artwork is displayed and invites stories.
My partner and I spent the weekend at Applewood Inn and we greatly enjoyed it. Inn Keepers, Linda and Chris, are absolutely delightful and very personable. I highly recommend doing the llama trek, which will give you the opportunity to walk, relax and enjoy the beautiful views. Breakfast was delicious, and conversations at the table with Linda, Chris and guests was very special.
We had a fantastic time on our "babymoon" at The Hummingbird Inn. Sandra and Jeff were so friendly and attentive-- we had everything just how we liked it. The breakfasts were creative and delicious, the room and bathroom extremely comfortable (we were in the Alleghany), and we loved curling up with cookies and milk in the cozy 18th-century den by the fire (which Jeff expertly built for us). We enjoyed massages and treats in our room (part of the babymoon package) and had some great dinners out in Lexington. Highly recommended!
We selected the Hummingbird because they allowed our small dog. Little did we know the pictures did not do it justice. The owners are not only delighted to be inn owners but very proud of their home and inn. The rooms are warm and fully stocked. The beds comfy and the sheets amazingly soft. Breakfast was delicious and the fire in the 'old house' made us so very happy and cozy. The scotch didn't hurt either! Thank you so very much!
We stayed at Hummingbird Inn in December to renew our wedding vowels. Everything about the stay was perfect. The Inn is beautiful and clean. The host and hostess were friendly and very attuned to detail.The breakfasts were fantastic! Our experience at Hummingbird Inn was beyond positive, and we cannot wait to return!!
Great location, nice, clean, comfortable. The hosts were great, breakfast was very good and met my dietary needs. The llamas are interesting and fun to watch. The drive along the creek to the inn is nice and stopping along the creek to hear the water gurgling is very relaxing. Highly recommend
Our stay at Steeles Tavern Inn was delightful. Ray and Melissa were very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the decor was lovely. The homemade cookies awaiting our arrival and the breakfast the next morning were delicious. We especially enjoyed visiting with the other guests and would hoghly recommend a stay at this B&B.
Our stay was amazing! Ray and Melissa (the owners of the Bed and Breakfast) took great care of us. The level of hospitality they showed us made us feel very welcome and at home. As we entered we were greeted by Ray and he gave us a tour of the home, and immediately made us feel like family. We stayed in the "Norton" which In my opinion was the largest and best looking room. We had a king sized bed, fireplace, and a double Jacuzzi tub. Melissa made sure we had our complimentary homemade cookies waiting for us in our room. Every morning we woke up to coffee and an assortment of teas and different cakes, along with a gourmet breakfast. Their attention to detail and willingness to please did not go un-noticed. If you are looking for a place to get away where your only concern is whether you want to make happy hour or take a dip in the Jacuzzi tub, or relax on the beautiful grounds, then you need to book your stay. You will not be disappointed..... #Trulygenuine people#Lovedourexperience#Fivestarsalltheway!
A perfect weekend getaway. Hospitality was off the charts! Our hosts did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. Food was excellently prepared and plentiful! The Inn is charming and extremely comfortable.
We stayed with Ray and Melissa for two days while hiking in the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge. The inn is lovely and so were the in keepers. We stayed in the Chardonnay room with its new luxury shower. It was perfect after a long day of hiking. The happy hour they host is a great opportunity to meet the other guests and get tips on things to do as well as sample some local wines and brews. I highly recommend the Rockbridge Reds. Breakfast was amazing and large enough for big appetites. Melissa's care in preparing fresh using quality local ingredients started every day out right. I hope your stay includes her French Toast Soufflé and bacon. Yum!!!
This is a great Bed and Breakfast! Melissa and Ray have gone the extra mile to ensure that their guests have an enjoyable visit right down to the smallest detail. We arrived at this 100+ year old home that has been so beautifully renovated to find amazing craftsmanship original to the period in which it was built. The decor and furniture are beautiful and inviting. Some older homes can have an old smell (my nose is sensitive) but this home smelled great. My husband and I stayed in the Norton and its bedroom and bathroom are very spacious and it has a beautiful electric fireplace. The sheets, robes, and towels were so soft! There is a Keurig coffee/tea maker upstairs with other complimentary drinks and snacks. We had dinner in Staunton at the Mill Street grill. Breakfast was rosemary potatoes, local bacon, southwest quiche, and baked grapefruit with a really good crusted cinnamon topping. I'm not sure of the type of coffee that she used but it was very good and smooth. Breakfast was great! I can't say enough good things about our stay at the manor and would highly recommend it!
Steeles Tavern Manor was our first introduction into a Select Registry property. What a great introduction. Everything had been considered to enhance our stay-from the luxurious sheets to the beautiful room. The overall ambiance was outstanding and very tasteful. The breakfast in the morning was very well done and well presented. We especially like the “social” hour in the afternoon as a way to get acquainted with other guests and our hosts. Since we were new to the area, it gave us a chance to ask questions and exchange notes on where to go and what to see. A very nice touch!
It was like meeting up with old friends, Sandra and Jeff could not have been more welcoming, and what a wonderful home they have? Every room has great character and is so comfortable. Had we not had to move on we could happily have stayed a week. Whilst dinner isn't part of the deal, Sandra does do a fantastic antipasto. Sitting out in the twilight with local beer and wine and enjoying this super meal (and a desert) was a great way to finish my 50th birthday. After such a wonderful evening we were curious to know how breakfast would compare. No worries - it was top class. Time to save up for another visit - it's worth leaving the UK for!
The day we arrived we received a warm welcome from Becky. She showed us the cozy inn and our room in the cabin. Our bed was very comfortable and plenty of hot water. We had a great breakfast of Becky's delicious oatmeal, fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, juice and coffee. We hope to return next fall. The mountains are breathtaking.
Found this little gem close to some Civil War historical areas. It is without a doubt the best B&B we have been to. Mark and Sue are warm and inviting and they cook a MEAN breakfast. It's quaint and cozy away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to make day trips to Lexington or Natural Bridge, or other attractions.. Can't wait to go back.
