Wonderful getaway!

4.8 on October 15, 2014

I recently got away for the weekend and did a tour of wineries and had an in-room massage. Marty was SO helpful, figuring out which wineries would have things I might like, arranging for a driver, and providing all the information I would need to have a really spectacular and relaxing time away from my everyday hustle and bustle. Victoria's breakfast is the best and they both really made my time away worth it. They are a great couple and the Inn at Poplar Hill is an excellent value.

My fiance and our little dog had an AMAZING TIME!

This is such a cozy, homey, and inviting get-away! The innkeepers were very hospitable and went the extra mile to make sure we had an amazing time. We will definitely be returning and staying with Marty and Victoria again in the near future!!!

Lovely House and Lovely Innkeepers

My wife and I stayed here for one night in the Rose room. The room and connected bathroom were awesome. We enjoyed privacy, but Marty and Victoria were available if we needed anything. They were extremely hospitable and helped to make our stay very relaxing and fun. The house is awesome and has been restored beautifully. Breakfast was wonderful and kept us full until the afternoon. We are already looking forward to staying here again!

Beautiful Fall Getaway!

4.6 on November 09, 2013

We spent the weekend in the Blue Willow room and couldn't have asked for better accommodations or service. Marty and Victoria serve an awesome breakfast and their advice on what to do or see in the area was spot on. We look forward to a return trip but will plan more time to just wander around the property and enjoy its peace and beauty. We left relaxed and rested so the trip was a success!

Great place to stay!

Anniversary Stay

5 on October 25, 2013

Our stay at the Inn on Poplar Hill was wonderful. It was a great get away from the city and quiet time away from the children. The owners are very knowledgable about the area and were extremely helpful in planning out our days of wine tasting and sight seeing. It was great to just go at our own pace and take in the sights. Great location to stay and close to a lot of vineyards. We can't wait to stay there again soon. Thank you for a memorable anniversary.

Great get away!!

4.4 on September 12, 2013

What a great place to get away from day to day life. This place was on 26 acres with trails and pond. So you could feel like you were out in the wilderness or walk to down town and eat a great dinner and/or have a drink or two. Mary and Victoria made you feel very welcome.

Fabulous Experience

5 on June 20, 2013

I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn on Poplar Hill while attending a wedding. I was extremely late in arriving, (midnight) and Marty was so very gracious I couldn't believe it! Breakfast the next morning was delightful, I am excited to make the souffles that Victoria made, which are on their website! I was not only a guest at the wedding, I made the gown and unfortunately it was a little large! Victoria not only loaned me her sewing machine, but she even helped me sew the final lace to the bodice! Now, honestly where would you ever find such a loving,helpful innkeeper! I can never thank these two delightful people enough and I can hardly wait for my husband and I to go there again and have a relaxing, delightful time at the Inn on Poplar Hill!

A Beautiful and Friendly Inn

5 on June 02, 2013

We stayed at the Inn with our golden retriever, who was really welcomed there (and not just tolerated). She specially appreciated the dog biscuits in the room. We loved the room we had in this old-fashioned inn, and really enjoyed the breakfasts, which really were "gourmet," and a real change from our usual spartan fare at home. The owners, Marty and Victoria, are warm and friendly, and very helpful in sharing local sightseeing and entertainment--we went to two lovely vineyards for tastings on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Marty also showed us how to get around the horrors of I95 in the Virginia suburbs south of D.C., where we had been in a 100 mile traffic jam on the way south. We recommend the inn without hesitation and with absolute confidence that everyone who goes there will enjoy it as much as we did.

Murder Mysteries

The Inn on Poplar Hill has been hosting Murder Mystery Weekends since 2002 A murder can be a perfect way to bring your group together. Imagine your friends and family working to solve the crime, with the theme of your choice. Guests will assume a persona, don the appropriate attire, discover clues, uncover motives and finally crack the case. Played over a four course gourmet dinner, our Murder Mystery Dinners are so much fun they are almost criminal. All that is required is a sense of humor and a willingness to take a light hearted attitude toward blackmail, sex, larceny, deceit and murder. The game is played over dinner. During a series of rounds your job is to solve the mystery, discover the murderer, and prove yourself innocent of the crime.

Presidential Packages

The Inn on Poplar Hill is just 5 minutes from James Madison's Montpelier. We offer discount admission tickets for $16 at$2 savings. You will also receive a 10% discount in the Montpelier gift shop. We are just a short drive to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlotesville, Virginia.

Food Glorious Food

Back by popular demand! Last years Dinner by the Fire promotion was so successful we have decided to repeat it this year. During the months of December and January stay with us for two nights and enjoy a complementary dinner served in front of the fire. Victoria will be whipping up delicious homemade soup and serving it along with a garden salad, fresh baked bread and dessert. There is no better way to ward off the winter blues than sharing a special dinner with that special someone. To make sure the soup is hot and the bread is freshly baked, 48 hours advance reservations are required.
