great stopping place near Interstate 81

4.8 on October 16, 2014

We just spent one night at Shenandoah and we had a very nice visit. This is an interesting combination of B&B, art gallery, working studio, and art classroom. There were several other couples there and everyone seemed to be having a good time.The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and filling. The hosts were gracious and helpful. We made quick trip to nearby Lexington and found it to be an interesting college town. There does seem to be a vibrant art community in the area based on the number of galleries. Highly recommended.

A very relaxing place

My wife and I spent three cozy nights at the Shenandoah Manor last week. We stayed in the Dali room for our honeymoon and we had a great time there; we particularly enjoyed the hot tub in the room where we relaxed with some Virginia wines each evening. We had a lot of privacy there and found the whole experience very relaxing. Nancy and Jan-Willem whipped up a nice breakfast each morning, with our favorite being a baked apple pancake. The next time we head back to the Virginia wine country, we plan on staying at Shenandoah Manor.

A night at the manor

I spent a night in the Rembrandt room, very comfortable, very clean, very nice, unique decor, spacious bathroom. The room comes with a little balcony with a view to the pond and the woods. Excellent location to relax. A touch of European style in everything. Delicious breakfast and the hosts were extremely accommodating in terms of serving breakfast early (even on a Sunday).

Amazing Art themed retreat miniutes from Lexington VA

4.8 on July 24, 2014

Nancy and Jan-Willem were our hosts for three nights as we hiked House Mountain, Sharp Top Mountain and Crabtree Falls. We stayed in the Rembrandt room, each room features a famous master's name. While no Rembrandt's in the room, the whole Manor features the excellent modern art from Jan-Willem and family. The room was well themed with curated pieces and decorative touches to match the art hanging form the wall. The decorative effect made you feel like you were staying at an arts friend's home not at a B&B, which was great. Nancy and Jan-Willem were gracious hosts very willing to provide area information and recommendations. Breakfast was excellent featuring fresh fruit and veggies from their garden. Their grounds were open and featured a large pond with 3 amazing koi including a golden koi that looked like a mythic dragon. And there are 2 sometimes 3 grounds cats that are either hunting or rolling over for belly rubs. Only minimal down sides; you are about 10 min from downtown Lexington, the front rooms, while nice and breeze do pick up some road noise, and the shower pressure was a bit low, but nothing to take away from a great visit. We highly recommend visiting Shenandoah Manor. Don and Susanna

A Wonderful Experience!

Not only were the rooms awesome, the owners friendly, and the breakfasts delicious, the setting was marvelous! A babbling brook, a pond with goldfish, and a lovely Gazebo were on the property. We took a walk down the road and enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Altogether, it was an perfect getaway for my sister and me. I definitely plan on returning.

Rural beauty and modern amenities

Nancy and her husband Jan were hospitable and helpful. We loved everything about our two night stay. The setting is lovely and just moments outside of Lexington. Their inn is clean, comfortable and full of artwork and antiques. The breakfasts were delicious and enhanced by the company of other interesting guests around the table.

Great Stay!

My partner and I stayed at Shenandoah Manor on our way to Washington DC. The inn keepers Nancy were super nice and very welcoming. The house is beautiful and LOVED all the painted pictures. Breakfast was a great time with lots of good conversation. Would stay here again!

Peaceful anniversary getaway

4.8 on January 30, 2014

The Shenandoah Manor was a wonderful place to relax. It was located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood and we enjoyed an early morning walk soaking in the countryside along Union Run. We enjoyed the gracious hospitality of inn keepers Nancy and Jan-Willem. They were very helpful in sharing suggestions for dining and places to visit in the historic Lexington area. The room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast food delicious and tastefully presented . Being a quilter myself, I enjoyed seeing the numerous quilts that grace their rooms. We would consider returning again and have recommended this B and B to an artist friend as a wonderful place to visit/stay.

Warm, welcoming and fantastic

Mid January in the depth of the Arctic Freeze we found this great B&B nestled in the mountains near Lexington VA. Warm, beautiful room, comfortable bed, friendly innkeepers, and a delicious breakfast in the AM. Perfect place for a cold winters night and I can only imagine how stunning the grounds must be in the spring!

About the innkeepers

Jan-Willem & Nancy moved to this lovely spot to create an Art Destination during the summer months, the Shenandoah Art Destination. This place reminds them of France, a place they have visited many times in their travels. Using art as a big part of the decor, you will find professional paintings on the wall and hand-made quilts on every bed. They both enjoy art, music, theatre, soccer and reading.
