Awesome Inn and Innkeeper

5 on December 15, 2014

We stayed Wednesday night to Saturday morning during the Thanksgiving holidays. Even though we our reservation had "snuck under the radar" when the staff had days off, Eve made sure we felt welcome and served us a simple but elegant breakfast. We would definitely go back.


Private Getaway

4.6 on December 03, 2014

This was our first time at the Inn at Old Virginia, and hopefully not our last. A beautiful location, really an impeccable suite, and friendly, attentive service. Staunton is 3 miles away, a small but lively town chock full of crafts and antique shops and surprisingly good food. All in all, the perfect getaway.


Home away from home

Great location near Staunton. Quiet surroundings. Bright and cheery rooms. Wonderful host, Eve, who knows the area well. Great breakfast!


Inn at Old Virginia

The Inn is beautiful, clean, quiet and to die for. The host were professional and made you feel as if they had known you forever. I stayed in one of the larger rooms on the second floor of the Old Barn & WOW!! I would'nt change a thing!


Wonderful property but little charm or genuine welcome

2.4 on November 12, 2014

When we arrived, we were shown a "library" filled with books-by-the-yard and DVDs. Our bedroom had every amenity except the one we cared most about: good bedside lamps for reading in bed. When we booked, we received an email asking whether our hostess could get anything for us: wine, chocolates? I responded "chocolates would be nice" and that was the last I heard of it. We were asked in the same email whether we had any food preferences or restrictions. I responded "yes, we don't enjoy sweet things at breakfast; we prefer savoury or meat-based items". We were served the standard breakfast of sweetened yoghourt topped with sugared granola, two large pieces of French toast with syrup, accompanied by a small portion of scrambled eggs and bacon strips. To the hostess' credit, I was given a second portion of eggs when I asked. But it was quite clear that the food preferences we had expressed did not influence what we were offered. While we recognize that B&Bs do not have hotel kitchens from which one can order what one chooses, we do wonder why an establishment would ask us what we do and do not eat --- and then ignore it. My take-away: most of the effort at this establishment has gone into creating an ersatz charm that is not matched by a genuinely hospital impulse. Those who seek a warm and personal welcome will not find it here.

Innkeeper Response
We have so appreciated all the generous reviews we have received and apologize for not saying so sooner. ALL reviews are appreciated as they tell us what we have done well and where we can improve. Our guests' enjoyment and comfort have been and will always be our highest priority. Thanks again to all of you.


Highly recommended

Beautiful countryside surroundings, very clean and well-decorated rooms, a welcoming and efficient staff. This is a first class b and b for staying in the Staunton area, with its many attractions of the American Shakespeare Center, Frontier Culture Museum, Woodrow Wilson home, etc. We look forward to returning.


Wonderful weekend getaway

5 on October 29, 2014

My husband and I joined friends of ours for a weekend away. We decided to stay at the Inn at Old Virginia after reading the reviews online. All three couples were able to stay in the renovated barn. We had such a wonderful stay. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast each morning was wonderful. We plan a trip to the Staunton/Charlottesville area every year and this will become an inn we will stay at again.


Loved the Inn !

Perfect lodging for our trip

4.2 on October 28, 2014

I was with my husband on a reunion trip of sorts where we were in Staunton for a night - primarily to see a play at Blackfriars - and Harrisonburg the next evening. Inn at Old VA proved to be the perfect lodging choice: close to downtown Staunton but also exuded the rural wonder of the Shenandoah Valley. Hosts were pleasant, informative, and very friendly. Room was well appointed, secure, spotlessly clean, comfy, and welcoming. We had everything we needed. I hadn't realized the lodging rooms were in a separate building (originally the barn) but that was not a problem. Views of the valley from the room were splendid. Our stay was very quiet - the only disruptions were a few times when the woosh of a fellow (upstairs?) lodger flushing his/her toilet woke me up for a sec. Breakfast was creative and tasty and the dining porch is a treat in itself. I'd stay here again! You should too!


Just perfect!

5 on October 27, 2014

My wife and I got to the Inn at dusk and were immediately struck by the beauty of the place. It was easy to access from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and was just outside of the historic town of Staunton. Kathy welcomed us very graciously. Our room was in the main house and was very spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was in great shape, and the bed was very comfortable. We watched a good DVD from their extensive collection after a nice dinner in town (based upon their recommendation). Unfortunately, it was too dark to take in much of Staunton, but one could tell it's a town with a lot of history! Breakfast the next morning was terrific and served by the owner who was just as nice as Kathy. We ate in a big solarium. The B&B is fairly large with a professional kitchen, and it runs very efficiently, but the friendliness is genuine and abundant. We will definitely stay here again, when we are back in the area.
