My boyfriend and I came here for a relaxing break over a long weekend. The B&B is a cute house off the main highway, so it's really easy to drive anywhere you need to go. The rooms were really nice. The breakfast was DELICIOUS and gourmet. We had plenty of coffee, juice, fruit parfaits, muffins, and the amazing main course which varied (rolled omelets one day and waffles the next). You should come just for the breakfast. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water, sodas, and (in the evening) delicious homemade cookies were available. In terms of amenities of the house, there is free, fast wifi, a communal computer, and a communal TV. Every bedroom has its own bathroom (no shared bathrooms!). The dining room is a more intimate setting where you sit and chat with the other guests. The couple who runs the place is fantastic, very accommodating, and knowledgeable about activities and restaurants in the area. The house has beautiful architectural elements that make it very charming. The location was good in that it was a beautiful setting and there were a couple of restaurants and wineries within a 10 minute drive. You have to drive about 30 minutes or more to get to really good wineries and longer to get to Charlottesville and Monticello. The local cuisine for dinner can get a bit old, so I recommend driving a little bit more to visit some other restaurants. All in all, it was a great stay! One of the best B&Bs I've stayed in.

There was a local power outage the first night of our stay, The B&B had no backup generator. The owners were able to offer us only cereal and scones for breakfast. We were not able to shower before going on our scheduled winery tour at 11:00 and we were told that we could not flush the toilet. Given the circumstances, I would have expected the owners to offer us a substantial discount on our first night stay, but no such discount was offered or received. However, on the bright side, the B&B was impeccably clean and offered a very quiet, laid-back, and relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was very good on the second day of our stay. We actually had a nice experience in spite of the power outage. Even during the outage we had a very pleasant morning relaxing by a gas fire place.

Very relaxing atmosphere, nice people, great service, value for money. Breakfast was surprisingly delicious and healthy. We truly felt at home. Though we had very nice conversations a sense of privacy was well respected both by hosts as other guests. Surely would like to return and will recommend this B&B to family and friends.

Innkeepers thought of everything to make this stay perfect for each guest. Each morning they made a delicious breakfast which set the tone for my whole day. They managed to create a romantic retreat while still being accessible and hospitable at all times. Can't wait to come back!

Hospitality unmatched. Orquida and Dan go out of their way to please. The House was beautiful and immaculate. For those that can't image being "unconnected", there is wireless access and satellite TV, but personally I enjoyed that these technologies were discreetly incorporated into the inviting, serene atmosphere so as not to disminish the wonderful quiet and comfortable experience. We hope to return in a warmer season so we can enjoy the pool.

We moved to Central Virginia from near Washington, DC in the Summer of 2002. We immediately fell in love with this area, and are constantly delighted by the sights, the activities and the friendliness of the people. We hope you'll enjoy the area as much as we do.
