This B&B, situated on beautiful grounds, was a wonderful place for our family to stay while visiting a nearby college. The owners were very hospitable and eager to please and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the beds were quite comfortable. The breakfast far exceeded what I would expect even from a wonderful B&B. They were well-planned with multiple courses and the most delicious breakfast meals I have had in ages. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone visiting town.

Reviewed May 29, 2013 NEW We just returned from a trip to Lexington, staying at Shenandoah Manor. The care, hospitality, and attention of the owners, Nancy and Jan-Willem Boer, is evident in all that they do. Their inn is extremely clean and tastefully decorated with interesting items and paintings, many by Jan-Willem, who was a commercial artist. The breakfasts were very delicious with an array of freshly prepared food items. They noticed I do not like eggs, and were anxious to provide something I might like to substitute. The brightly colored new quilts on the beds made the rooms very inviting. There was a comfortable feeling of spaciousness as none of the rooms was crowded with too much furniture or decoration. We enjoyed sitting out on the private porch connected to our room, overlooking the garden. The sound of the stream and the fountain made it very relaxing. We were on the second floor of the main house, but there is an adjacent smaller house which would probably be easier for guests who find stairs difficult. We did not notice any problems with the availability of hot water. The Boers were always friendly and kind, offering a welcoming glass of wine, and brought us some hot tea after we arrived back in a thunderstorm from Lexington. They are interesting to talk to, and are sensitive to being professional as well friendly. The price was quite reasonable for the quality of the inn and the breakfast. For us, it was wonderful to be out in the quiet and peacefulness of the country yet close to the restaurants and sights of Lexington. Unless you want to be in the center of downtown Lexington, this is an extremely enjoyable place to stay. We would have liked to remain some days longer!

We spent 4 great nights at this peaceful bed and breakfast. Jan-Willem and Nancy are ideal hosts. Their attention to comfort and convenience was excellent. The food was terrific with great presentation. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in Virginia.

We recently stayed at Shenandoah Manor for the first time. We visit the Lexington area frequently as college parents. Nancy and Jan-Willem are gracious hosts and make their guests feel very comfortable and welcome in their home. The rooms are very tastefully and artfully decorated. Our room was spacious with a private balcony and lots of light. The house is an art treasure with many rooms filled with Jan-Willem's paintings. It is also an artist's retreat which provides additional charm. Nancy's breakfasts are a real treat. She serves tasty, new dishes each morning and you really look forward to them. We will definitely return to Shenandoah Manor.

This B&B is being revived by the recent owners that have done an amazing job in less than a year. It lies only minutes away from downtown Lex-Vegas yet benefits from the peace and quiet only a pond and rolling stream can offer. The property is on a beautiful hill/mountain and the home(s) are decorated with Jan-Willen's amazing art work. We were welcomed with a tour and a beer and Nancy was able to get a reservation for dinner in town in spite of every W&L student going out for dinner for W&L's fraternity formal dress night. Breakfast was delicious (Mexican egg cups) and filling and the coffee was spot on. We even had the outdoor fireplace stocked with kindling and firewood for us. Looking forward to going back!

The Shenandoah Art Destination is a hidden gem in the Lexington area. The Manor House is tucked back in the woods with a nearby creek making it the perfect place to relax and to be creative. Even for a beginner without carving experience, Jan provided enough training so that I developed appropriate carving and print making skills. Through Jan's encouragement it was easy to create beautiful prints that we are using for cards. The hospitality, food, and character of this Bed and Breakfast is delightful. We've already highly recommended Shenandoah Manor to our family and friends!

Although we were the first guests to stay at the newly opened Shenandoah Manor B&B, one would think it had been open a long time. The inn is exceptionally warm and inviting with the host's incredible art work displayed throughout. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet, and even had a fireplace and porch which was perfect. Breakfast was delicious and beyond expectations. Nancy and Jan-Willem are truly gracious hosts who made us feel at home immediately. We will definitely choose Shenandoah Manor B&B whenever we spend the night in Lexington, VA.

I had a lovely 2 nights at this B&B in the beautiful VA country side. It was extremely quiet, and the room and bed was very comfortable. It was spotless and the bedroom and bathroom was supplied with everything I could have needed.The owners were very attentive and friendly. I enjoyed the breakfasts very much, and the owners were very accommodating and welcoming. I was there for a college Parent weekend which was just a pleasant 10 minute drive from the campus. I would happily stay there again. Room Tip: All the rooms were very nice, each has a private large bathroom which was very comfortable. Allison R.
