an absolutely great B&B. I cannot recommend this more highly. If your in the area you need to stay here.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to post your review. Guest Experience means everything to us! I noticed that the "Onsite dining" portion of your review had only received 4 out of 5 stars (circles). My hope is that this reflects the fact that we only serve Breakfast here as opposed to the quality of your Breakfast experience. We have considered adding a Lunch and/or Dinner service, but given all the fantastic dining options available in Staunton, we have decided to concentrate our efforts to the three areas where we have the greatest strength: Quality Accommodations, Breakfast Service & most of all Overall Guest Experience. Thanks again! Please visit us again!!!


A Perfect Anniversary Getaway

5 on August 08, 2016

So where do I begin?!?! I wanted to get away with the wife for our anniversary. I knew she loved B&Bs and I thought I would go online and see which were some of the best in Virginia. One that stood out to me was this little gem in Staunton, the Inn at Old Virginia. What stood out the most was that the reviews on TripAdvisor were extremely positive and there was little to no negative comments. I said to myself, this couldn't be true and I'll just have to go take a look at this place for myself. Guess what folks?!? It did not disappoint! Let's start with the property itself: well maintained and inviting. The rooms: clean, had everything we needed, and did I say clean already?!? Yes I did! Nothing worse then paying good money to go stay somewhere and you don't even want to lay your head down in the bedroom or take your shoes off. No worries here! In my opinion the best part of our trip was the staff. My wife and I were in one of the eight rooms that they have, but we were made to feel important and the staff seemed pleased and grateful to be able to make our stay the best possible. As soon as we pulled up to check-in, Chris, the Inn Manager, was there to greet us with a smile, hello, and a handshake and immediately I could tell we made a good decision to stay there. The breakfast staff was on their game and the breakfast itself was fresh and you could tell that a lot of time and preparation went into making sure that this was just not your ordinary breakfast. Eve, the Inn owner has been running the place for many years and you could tell, as it was being run the right way. We will be back, we will tell our friends about it, and we hope that you also give the Inn at Old Virginia a try; it will be well worth it.

Innkeeper Response
ooops...looks like we have a duplicate here. I don't want to give folks the impression that we are attempting to "stuff the ballot box" regarding reviews. Thank you for thinking of us again!! We look forward to your return!


Wonderful weekend at the Inn

5 on August 06, 2016

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Inn. Staunton is a great small city and we enjoyed three plays in two days at the American Shakespeare Center. The room at the Inn was very nice, extremely clean and very comfortable. The service was very friendly and the breakfasts were great. We are already planning to come back another time!

Innkeeper Response
The theatre here is outstanding. I'm glad you had experienced it for yourselves. Thank you for all of the compliments and taking the time to post your review!! I look forward to your return!


Highly recommended, great stay!

Lovely place to stay

5 on July 27, 2016

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The rooms with bright, cheerful, clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The Inn keeper, Mr. Rodriguez, was very welcoming and attentive to all of our needs. They successfully accommodated the dietary needs of two of our party who have Celiac Disease--everyone stayed well fed and healthy for the entire week (no cross contamination). The Inn has a lovely pastoral setting. Great bird watching at dawn and dusk from the balconies on the barn-- Green Herons, Eastern Kingbirds, Indigo Buntings. Undoubtedly there would be much more in fall and spring. Lots to do in Saunton or within a day drive, including the Shakespeare playhouse, Harper's Ferry, Monticello, Luray Caverns, and the Shenandoah NP and Blueridge Parkway. Highly recommend!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to post this very nice review. I don't recall having met such a nice family of four. With all of the local and regional activities you enjoyed through the week, I think it is fair to say that you have experienced more of the Valley than I have. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your visit here. I hope you will consider us in the future. Thank you for the kind words and thank you for your service!

Wonderful Stay at The Inn at Old Virginia

4.6 on July 12, 2016

Had a wonderful stay at The Inn at Old Virginia despite the rain. First day was beautiful in all aspects, weather, humidity, etc. Went for a hike recommended by Chris R. with the Inn at Crabtree Falls. Loved it but enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub the best when we got back to the room. Went on runs and tried bike riding but rain was ever threatening. We decided on driving the bike ride and taking in the local flair of Staunton and Harrisonburg VA. The service and food was top notch but you had the feeling of being a personal guest. I loved it and will be back. Thank you to Chris and Catherine!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to post this very nice review!! I look forward to your return. Thanks again!!!

We look forward to having you back. Thank you for posting this nice review!
