We had a wonderful stay at Let's Bleu Ridge. The room was comfortable and spacious. Danielle was warm and welcoming, a delightful innkeeper and an awesome chef!

This small but personal B & B was a wonderful retreat. Danielle & Marcel were outstanding hosts! Breakfast was delicious! And proximity to all of the wineries couldn't be better. Looking forward to our next visit!

We came to Afton to experience the brew ridge trail. The location of this B&B was absolutely perfect. The area is just beautiful. As for the B&B itself, it was excellent. We stayed in the Blue Moon room. It was very clean and spacious. I loved the massaging shower heads. The owners are absolutely delightful and the breakfasts were delicious. Danielle and Marcelle are French Canadian, so it goes without saying, that Danielle makes delicious crepes. This was an outstanding visit. My husband and I will definitely come back to Le Bleu Ridge for the food, the great location, and wonderful company. Merci beaucoup!

Our stay in the cottage was wonderful. The breakfast's were great as well as the food from Danielle's Le Chic Picnic food trailer. The cottage was very nice with a comfortable king sized bed, private bath and living area. This is a perfect location for visiting the areas many brewers and wineries. Clean and reasonable! Danielle and Marcel were very nice and made our stay memorable. We will definitely be returning. Mike and Doreen

We stayed at Le Bleu Ridge in order to attend the Lockn' Music Festival. Danielle and Marcel are charming hosts. The breakfasts were wonderful. Danielle is quite an accomplished chef. We stayed in the Cottage and it fit our needs quite nicely. We would most certainly stay there again.

Two adults and infant stayed in cottage on property. Cottage was spacious and very clean. Owners Danielle and Marcel were gracious hosts. Danielle was also happy to accommodate our special dietary needs for meals, which was appreciated. Would highly recommend Le Bleu Ridge to anyone traveling to the area!

This was our third visit to Le Bleu Ridge from Colorado. Danielle and Marcel have always been impeccable hosts as well as a lot of fun to be with.. The breakfasts that Danielle prepares are unusual. delicious, filling and healthy and a perfect start to the day to be enjoyed in rural Virginia. The short drive from Le Bleu Ridge to Charlottesville , Waynesboro, and Staunton makes it a very convenient place to be. The area is itself very scenic in its own right and provides immediate access to route 151 and its many vineyards and breweries.

A lovely escape to the country, in a wine region only a few miles from historic Charlottesville. The hosts are a charming couple from Quebec. Danielle is a chef in her own right, specializing in local, healthful foods, and responsive to special dietary needs (diabetic, vegetarian, etc.). We stayed three days in the guest house, which includes a large and comfortable couch and fridge, with adjacent deck for cocktails to watch the sunset over the mountains. The B&B experience is inseparable from the personality of the hosts; in this case, we enjoyed just the right amount of conversation and parted with hugs.

This is simply our favorite B&B, and we continue to come back. The owners Danielle and Marcel are two of the nicest, friendliest people I've met and are always excited to see us and welcome us into their beautiful home. The Flying Fox Winery Tasting Room sits adjacent to the house and makes it very convenient to pick up some excellent wines for sipping on the large front porch of the home. The main house has two well-appointed rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, and we've stayed in both. The bath for the upstairs room is down the hall, but since you have the whole upstairs, it is very private and they give you plush robes to wear. The downstairs room has a private bath and waterfall shower with wall jets. That was a welcomed feature after we spent the day hiking at the nearby Humpback Rocks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are three excellent breweries within a 15-minute drive that have indoor and outdoor seating and great craft beers. If you want the biggest and best barbecue sandwich you've ever had, stop in at Paulie's Pig Out in walking distance of the B&B. But the best food of all is the delicious breakfasts that Danielle prepares with fresh local ingredients and an artsy flair. Danielle will be opening a mobile kitchen called Le Chic Picnic this summer that will provide "Grab N Go" lunches, snacks and other treats that will compliment the fine selection of wines just across the parking lot. I highly recommend this B&B and we plan to return this fall to see our friends and enjoy the fire pit in the back yard.

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with my girlfriend and we had an excellent experience. The property is beautiful, the house is really cool and the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend it for a getaway weekend, and there are plenty of wineries, breweries and the like in the immediate area. You'll be glad you checked it out.
