We enjoyed our evening in Scottsville. The breakfast was excellent. I think the price was a bit high, but we did have a quiet nice evening. The owners were very kind and accomodating. Loved the satin sheets!

Delightful house, delightful village

Charming older home, the room was a little small but the bathroom was huge! Breakfast at the owners' coffee shop was excellent--ordered off the menu. A neighborly, friendly, small town kind of place. We enjoyed strolling around the village--very pretty.

We needed a place to stay after a beautiful country wedding nearby and the Guesthouse suited our needs just fine! The rooms are all very clean and the decor is warm and welcoming! The following morning we enjoyed a good hearty cup of coffee and breakfast at the coffee house. Would definitely recommend! Thanks again, Carl and Rachel, for the use of your lovely home!

OutstandingSmall Town B&B

We enjoyed a well equiped room,large bath, and the quiet atmosphere of a small town. We actually looked forward each day to the short walk down the picture perfect street to the Cafe for breakfast. The owners also run a Artisan Cafe with a healthy menu that is also very tasty. The busy owners are also at he Cafe at times to care for you there also. They will become as family if you are there and enjoy being taken care of.

Affordable evening away from home.

Need to get away for a while? Feeling the pressures of a tightening a economy? Look no further! Beautiful Valley is great. My wife and I spent one night here and we enjoyed ourselves. There is a beautiful walking path not far for running or jogging. The breakfast was great and the room was very clean. This is not pampered service. Stay here for a nice time but don't expect four-star treatment or amenities. Have fun!

Owner very nice but didn't live at the Inn, so we felt a bit abandoned. I didn't realize it was a "self-serve" experience.

Innkeeper Response
As this is a Guesthouse and NOT an Inn, we offer ideal accommodations in that guests have the privacy of their own space with minimal noise, etc., away from our 2 small children, because we do live off-site. We are always available via phone and guests are free to contact us at any time. For those seeking accommodations where we live and an in-house breakfast, we provide this with the King Suite at our Rochester Street property. We also offer a unique option to our guests in that we supply a Full Service Breakfast at our Artisan Coffeehouse just down the street, which we also own/operate. Breakfast options are a choice of Gourmet Breakfast Sandwiches, Pastries, Cappuchinos/Lattes/Coffee/Tea, Fruit Juice, Oatmeal/Cereal. Coffee and tea service are always provided in the Guesthouse dining room at any time. We are currently in the process of updating our website to reflect all our unique accommodations and the various choices we provide each guest, according to their needs.

Nice getaway for those seeking privacy

My husband and I spent the evening in the inn in the Rupert Suite, which has a very comfortable bed and a nice whirlpool bath-tub (we did not experience any dripping issues). As mentioned in other reviews, we had minimal contact with the innkeepers, but we didn't mind because we were looking for privacy and I am from Scottsville, so we know the town. The breakfast at the Artisan Cafe was very good (we each had a delicious egg sandwich, muffin, juice, and latte).

Cute location but not the feel of a B&B

4.0 on January 16, 2012

The location is very nice in the village. Unfortunately there is not much to do/see in Scottsville and it is a bit of a drive to stores, museums and the college our son attends. It was a bit odd staying at a BandB that doesnt have an innkeeper in the traditional sense. The house was empty except for us and it felt awkward being there without any staff. We went to the library a few doors down to ask for suggestions for dinner and directions. There is no computer at the inn. (the site says there is). We found a much more traditional BandB and stayed there for the remainder of our stay.
