Comfort in a Beautiful Setting

5 on July 18, 2014

This was our first stay at The Farmhouse at Veritas, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. The grounds are beautiful, and the house is equipped with all modern comforts yet classic and historic in the decor. The staff was attentive and gracious in every way, and we look forward to returning.


Best B&B in the US, hands down!

I really don't know what to say that hasn't already been said... Simply put it is only 100 yards from the main drive into the winery, but that 100 yards transports you to a totally stress free, relaxed and friendly escape from reality. Chloe and the rest of the staff, work tirelessly behind the scenes to make it virtually impossible to have anything but a wonderful and memorable experience. The wine is arguably the best in Virginia and food at The Farmhouse is incredable. The rooms are comfortable and make you forget that you will eventually will have to leave, even though you will not want to. I've stayed there twice, and am already planning when I will return. Best of the best!


Perfect Paradise....

WOW....a perfect stay from start to finish! What an incredible experience from Jose and Leticia's warm and genuine welcome to the fond farewell! We went to the Veritas Winery four years ago and absolutely loved it. We were so happy to learn they had opened an Inn and we would be able to enjoy their lovely vista for a breakfast and dinner! The rooms are beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, including a wonderful welcome bottle of Chardonnay and a festive "wine" hour with the other guests. We are so glad we decided to take advantage of Chef Andy's Farmhouse dinner paired with wines from the vineyard. It was delightful and we loved getting to know the other guests who were mostly from Virginia. The property is nicely situated about 20-30 minutes from Charlottesville and an easy ride to other great vineyards and historical attractions. We stayed at 6 inns during our Virginia getaway and, by far, this was our favorite. You can't go wrong.....we will be back, for sure!!!! Wendy and Tom Florida


Paradise in the Blue Ridge

4.6 on July 05, 2014

From the moment we walked in the home the smell of fresh baked cookies filled the air. Greeted by a friendly staff, we were provided a tour of the home which is decorated very tastefully. I felt like royalty as I walked the halls and then saw our room AMAZING! A bottle of the signature wine awaited us in the room and the weather was perfect. It was only a short stroll past the vineyards to the winery where we taste tested and purchased some more local wine. The food was amazing and I felt It was more artwork than something to eat. I wanted to frame it of display it on a pedestal as it was so appealing to the eye but more so, tasted fantastic! I highly recommend a visit to The Farmhouse at Veritas, I know I will be back!


BEST B&B IN THE US! FEELS LIKE HOME, IF YOU ARE LAID-BACK ROYALTY!!!

First, it is on the BEST winery in VA, which is not an easy accomplishment. Second, the staff (from Chloe to Leticia) are gifted and focused on making your personal experience the best it can be. Third, the FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. Period. Breakfast and Dinner are always a pleasant adventure. Fourth, each room is unique and elegant while making you feel like you are the only guest at the Farmhouse. The overall experience is classic, understated, rich and very, very personal. We have stayed three times and each time the Farmhouse has deepened the offerings while maintaining the "British Family" atmosphere that makes it our very favorite home away from home. We'll be back every year, FOREVER!


Another wonderful stay at The Farmhouse

5 on June 19, 2014

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Farmhouse at Veritas on three occasions. On each of our 2 night visits, we have been so impressed by the warm and friendly staff and family who take care of the guests. Relaxing while surrounded by mountains and a thriving winery just adds to the appeal. Additionally, we've met some delightful guests. We look forward to our next visit.


one of the best ever

5 on May 01, 2014

As recent transplants from California, we wanted to explore Virginia wineries and picked the Farmhouse at Veritas for our overnight stay. What a marvelous introduction to Virginia wine country and hospitality. The Farmhouse and Veritas Winery were an impeccable experience. We have experienced some of the finest B&B's California has to offer and the Farmhouse rates right up there with them. Both room and service were wonderful. And even more, the meals - dinner and breakfast - were outstanding, prepared on site from locally acquired meats and produce and of course accompanied with the very excellent Veritas wines. We are already talking about a return trip!


Fantastic

My wife and I stayed just one but definitely will return. We arrived with 6 inches of new snow in a beautiful setting among the vineyards. We relaxed from the long trip in a spacious, very comfortable bedroom. Breakfast was amazing, two gourmet choices, prepared by the chef de cuisine! Chloe, the owner, was delightful and talked to us about growing up at Veritas. Our only disappointment was they do not serve dinner on weekdays in the winter.


Outstanding B&B

5 on March 27, 2014

My husband and I came here for our 25th anniversary. We were not disappointed. We love the B&B experience and this B&B is one of if not the best we have been to. What a warm and inviting atmosphere, and beautiful scenery. The breakfasts were truly delicious and the chocolate chip cookies were awesome!! We will definitely be doing dinner the next time we stay. Can't say enough about the staff, friendly, helpful and accommodating. Thanks so much to all!


An Incredible B&B

5 on March 13, 2014

My husband and I have stayed in many wonderful B&Bs on both the East and West cost during our 30+ year marriage. As seasoned veterans, and hopeless romantics, we always have high expectations, especially for Diamond Collection Properties. The Farm House at Veritas didn't disappoint! This beautiful old house, gorgeous surroundings and warm hosts/staff exceeded our expectations across the board. Each guest room is roomy and beautifully appointed, as are all of the common areas. Breakfast was incredible (can't wait to go back to have dinner!!) with a sweet or savory choice of delightful indulgences. We are very fortunate to be close by, and plan to make a habit of visiting the Farm House for special occasions and Winery events! M&S Smith
