Can't Wait to Go Back

This was our first time at The Farmhouse and we look forward to returning soon. The breakfasts and wine pairing dinner prepared by Chef Alex was absolutely delicious and the staff so kind and thoughtful. Everyone made us feel welcome and strived to make our stay just wonderful!


Quiet Retreat

My wife and I came to Saddleback for an impromptu get away. We've always loved visiting Nelson County and all the many wineries and breweries but we've never found a great place to stay....until now! We had a wonderful time at Saddleback and at Veritas. Diane and her team were very warm and friendly. The food was top notch and the wine was wonderful. We really enjoyed the 5:30 PM daily Happy Hour where they served amuse-bouche along with complimentary wine. We will definitely be back.

My husband & I were married at Veritas in November 2014. We went back to The Farmhouse for our 1st wedding anniversary. Truly amazing experience every time. Patricia & Diane take care of every need & are fun & personable while they're at it. Rooms are great, so comfortable. Housekeeping is amazing (I'm sorry, I can never remember her name). Chef Alex is a wonderful new addition to the team. Love the history of the house, the drawing room with the fireplace can't be beat to sit & enjoy a lazy day. We'll be back every year!


An anniversary to remember

A very special place for us to celebrate our 38th anniversary! The entire staff was so warm and welcoming, ready to meet every need (we had none as it was all perfect!). Elegant, yet warm and cozy too-- breakfast and dinner were AMAZING, served with such attention to detail. Can't wait to return! Vineyard and sheep grazing, a wonderful view from the porch rocking chairs. Fabulous winery with stellar wines.


Great service in beautiful setting.

Beautiful vineyard/farm setting at a spotless well-maintained farmhouse. We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious dinner with wine pairings from the vineyard. We didn't realize Virginia wines were so good! Especially liked the Cabernet Franc and Port-style wines. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating especially at dinner. We loved the the room as well which was well-appointed and comfortable.


Absolutely Amazing!

It was outstanding!!

My boyfriend and I stayed for a night in the middle of the week as part of my birthday present. We had the most amazing time. Upon arrival, we were met by the lovely Diane who showed us our room and encouraged us to have a peek at the other guestrooms while they were opened. She was very hospitable and I believed her when she said to ask if we needed anything.We stayed in Derby and were delighted with the room. It was comfortable and cozy and filled with natural light. Drinking coffee and watching the sunrise from the comfort of the bed was a wonderful start to the morning. All the rooms looked comfortable and each had some unique and alluring feature. The common areas were also inviting and I only wished we had more time to enjoy it all.I am out of characters but dining was incredible--both the Farmhouse Dinner and breakfast the next morning. It was our first time at a B&B and we were a little nervous about the social aspects, but Diane was such a wonderful host that we were instantly at ease. I want to say the wine hour ended up being one of my favorite parts, but the truth is, every part was my favorite! The setting is beautiful, the people are wonderful, the house is delightful. My only complaint is that I don't get to spend everyday there!Amenities include: a bottle of Veritas wine, wineglasses, and chocolate truffles in your room upon arrival; plush robes and slippers; custom bath products; freshly baked cookies in the kitchen; complimentary wine hour with amuse bouche


Incredible Weekend

Our 2 night stay at The Farmhouse was absolutely delightful in every way - a great room, great and very friendly service and the food - we travel a great deal and this was amazingly good food. We enjoyed everything about The Farmhouse and look forward to returning in the Fall.

Signature Dish

Joel's Choice
Joel works with each guest to decide what best suits their appetite. He then takes his culinary expertise and wizardry in the kitchen to create anything from a simple soul-warming soup to a four-course meal paired with Veritas wines. So we say...the signature dish is what you desire, but ultimately 'Joel's Choice.'
