This was our second time at the Mayhurst. Superb property with extraordinarily gracious hosts. Jack and Pat are simply wonderful. Centrally located to many activities, its the perfect spot for a quick getaway.
What was better? The delicious food, our gorgeous room? the theater room? the amazing location with bike riding and hiking right outside the front door? the magnificent pool. I cannot say enough about this B&B and Eric's wonderful hospitality. He made us vegan French toast. WE WILL BE BACK!
My wife and I have been frequent visitors to the Piedmont region since we moved to Northern Virginia seven years ago. We've stayed at almost every luxury inn and hotel in Charlottesville, Orange and Culpeper and nothing that we've ever experienced could hold a candle to Walden Hall. It was a truly unique and refreshing experience. The property has so much to do and experience that we ended up canceling our dinner reservations in Washington and ordered takeout to enjoy poolside. We finished our evening by watching the perfect sunset on the front porch. Utterly stunning! We tried to extend our stay but they were fully booked for the following night. Eric was gracious enough to let us check out late and stay on the property for a few hours to test out the movie theater and take one last dip in the pool. We love you guys! See you again in September! -Beth and Mike
This is not our first stay at Walden Hall, and it won't be our last! We love the rooms, the staff, and the setting. On this visit we hiked the Rose River Trail. It was beautiful! For our next visit to Walden Hall we are hoping for a longer stay that will allow for more time to explore the area.
We searched for a well rated B & B near Montpelier and were pleased to find this one. The innkeepers Elizabeth & Jay were very attentive to our needs and arranged dinner reservations for us as well as a flight in a hot air balloon taking off from their front yard. Prior to the 6 AM launch they had coffee ready, the way we asked for it at 5:30AM. We stayed two nights and enjoyed wonderful breakfasts. Highly recommend staying here!
We recently spent a wonderful weekend at Walden Hall. The innkeepers were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The property is beautiful and the rooms were well appointed. We definitely plan to make a return visit.
Chestnut Hill is a beautifully restored historic building. The owners were extremely nice and helpful so that we could enjoy our little weekend getaway. They had great suggestions for wineries and restaurants in the area. The room was charming and the breakfasts at the B & B were delicious! We can't wait to go back!
Best vacation we have had in a long time!! The inkeepers were amazing and made sure we had everything we needed and more. The breakfasts they cooked and served us on the front porch made us feel so spoiled! (: We stayed in the Longfellow loft and and it was a total luxury! My husband and I got in the whirlpool tub and watched a movie every night. We purchased some bath salts while we were there that were a very nice treat. The softest, fluffiest robes were included in our room and coffee maker, chocolates our room keeper left for us after she cleaned. The game room downstairs was really fun. We played pool every day we were there. Walden Hall thought of everything. We only left for food, haha. They had all the comforts and activities to do that we stayed comfortable and entertained for days. We wished we could have stayed longer. We will deffinetly be coming back!
Elizabeth and Jay are excellent hosts. The Inn is not only beautiful but also spotless. Fresh cut flowers in every room. Rooms are beautiful and beds are so comfortable. Robes ando slippers are in every room, coffee right outside room waiting for us every morning. We loved having coffee and reading in the sunlit library each morning before we went down for a delicious breakfast. The breakfasts are fabulous from beginning to end. It was my husband's birthday and had asked for a cake on the day we arrived. Jay made the most delicious lemon cheesecake complete with fresh fruit on top and candles. The yards are beautiful and well maintained. We fed the chickens and petted the donkey. One evening we opted to skip dinner and just relax in the back yard in Adirondack s with wine, cheese and fruit. (WHICH we got locally) And watch the sunset . We loved every second and will definitely go back soon. We highly recommend. Jay
My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at the Inn at Westwood Farm. The proprietors were fantastic. The rooms were beautiful and the accommodations were comfortable. They have a rooster on property but we barley heard him in the mornings. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. We walked the land, the gardens, and the barn. Orange, VA is beautiful historic country and we visit at least once a year. This was our third stay at a B&B and by far this was the best. We had the pleasure of joining in for the Orange Historical Society's monthly meeting and learned so much about the original owner of the farm house. We also scheduled a wine tour with Central Virginia Wine Tours and had a blast. We will be visiting again. Thank you Elizabeth and Jay...
We absolutely loved our stay at The Inn at 400 West High. We felt very welcomed by Caroline, our host. Everything was just beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. The Inn was convenient to everything we wanted to do. Can't wait to stay again!
Our time was short but the stay will be with us for some time. We were going to a friends wedding and Westwood was close relaxing and very beautiful. The service and the hospitality added that much more to our enjoyment of our stay.
We loved The Inn at 400 West High! The room was so spacious with a sitting area and gas fireplace. The decorations were so detailed and charming. The Breakfast simply outstanding! And all the people were as nice and helpful as could be.
We had an amazing weekend! The room was beautiful has a huge tub beautiful fire place. We enjoyed couple massages which was amazing. Went wine tasting and had dinner at a great French restaurant! Jack and pat were great and very accommodating breakfast was amazing as well. We will be returning in the future!
We travel to central Virginia twice a year and for the past five years we have stayed at the Inn at Little Washington for every visit. We decide to break the routine this year and booked with Walden Hall after seeing them in the Virginia’s Best awards magazine. They certainly did not disappoint. Walden Hall truly lived up to its reputation as one of Virginia’s great luxury retreats, making our special 30th anniversary that much more special. Here's what we loved: - the understated physical beauty of the property is undeniable, with gorgeous views of the countryside from every corner - the salt water, modern style pool and patio is a sophisticated, relaxing retreat after a full day of wine tasting - They have more amenities than a large resort: a movie theatre, real arcade, billiards, fishing, firepits… the list goes on and on.. - the complimentary tastings to their partner vineyards made our wine country exploration even more enjoyable (tip: talk to Eric about planning a perfect wine tour) - we loved the Walt Whitman Suite, taking advantage of the hot tub balcony with a glass of Virginia wine - the complimentary beer and local craft beer tastings in the club were a surprise! (About 50% of the property is not shown on the website so we were constantly finding new hidden places to relax and enjoy.) Of course, the real standout at the world's best hotels and resorts is outstanding service, and we experienced this level of service throughout our visit to Walden Hall. Eric and Evanne took excellent care of us, their recommendations on where to visit and top notch concierge service made our trip one of the best of the decade. Tucked back in the picturesque rolling hills, Walden Hall really is heaven in wine country. We can't wait to return.
My husband and I stayed at the Inn on Poplar Hill with our dog for the weekend. Our stay was amazing. We utilized the trails on the property, sat by the pond and hung out in the game room playing pool and enjoying the fireplace. It was a very relaxing weekend. The breakfast we had each morning was excellent. We took advantage of the complementary designated driver wine tour provided and had a great time visiting 4 of the local wineries and doing some wine tasting. Our dog was welcome on the tour and in the wineries that had been selected to visit. The innkeepers Marty and Victoria went out of their way to make our stay great. They placed a water dish and treats in the room for our dog and provided information about the surrounding area, so we could plan our outings. We will definitely be making a return trip in the near future. Melanie
We just spent 2 nights at Chestnut Hill as a gift from our daughter and her family. What a treat !! The Inn is absolutely beautiful....clean beyond belief and appointed so tastefully. Kathleen and Troy are exceptional hosts, ,meeting every need and lots of perks (tickets to Montpelier and wineries). The evening happy hour treats were so nice after a day of sightseeing and their dinner recommendations were outstanding. The other guests we met were so interesting as well. We will certainly return again !!!! John and Nancy Ross, Timonium.MD
The Inn at Westwood Farm is the best B&B in Orange, thanks in large part to its fantastic Innkeepers. This was the third stay for my husband and I; we intend to return regularly. Decor at the Inn is elegant and classy, while remaining supremely comfortable. The rooms are comfortable, and all but one have an en-suite bathroom. In addition to the lovely guest rooms, there are several additional rooms where one can relax. Mornings begin with coffee left on the landing just outside the guest rooms - pure bliss. Breakfasts are phenomenal, made with locally sourced ingredients, and always filling. Truly, there isn't a better experience in Orange.
