About

Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on 50 acres in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley lies Steeles Tavern Manor B&B. Our 1916-built 5 bedroom Virginia manor house is located in a peaceful country setting, midway between Staunton and Lexington, with a spring-fed pond, walking grounds and babbling creek. The Inn's updated decor offers a warm, relaxing environment and has a wine theme highlighted with each guest room named for a wine varietal native to Virginia.

Wonderful stay!

Definitely one of the best B and B's we've stayed at. The rooms were charming and comfortable and the owners warm and gracious. Our only regret was we stayed only one night. Next time it'll be at least two!


Great Getaway Location with Great Experience

5 on May 08, 2015

We visited Steeles Tavern Manor B&B for a two day weekend stay and were very pleased with our experience. We would highly recommend the location for anyone interested in a relaxing location to spend some quality time together. The location sits on a 50 acre site and is off the beaten track with very little distractions other than a stray cow to bother you. The B&B has 5 rooms and 3 cabins and was built in 1919 and is very spacious. The hosts are terrific and do everything they can to make your experience an enjoyable one. They are a fountain of knowledge about what to do in the area should you wish to get out and enjoy the wonderful mountain scenery in the area. They recommended we drive the Nelson’s Loop and we did so through the George Washington National Forrest and it was full of great views and an interesting driving course for those that want to not know what is around the next corner in the road. The loop takes you an area with a number of wineries and three craft beer breweries. They recommended the Veritas Winery for a visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. As many of the other reviewers have stated Melissa’s cooking is terrific and I think she produced the best breakfasts I have ever enjoyed. We stayed in the Norton Room and it has a great view and is spacious and really had everything we could ask for. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. I strongly suggest you give the location a try if you are thinking about enjoying the mountains for a get away from the daily grind.

"Our 40th Wedding Anniversary Getaway"

5 on November 23, 2014

After searching several weeks for the perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, we found and booked 4 nights at the Steeles Tavern Inn. What a wonderful choice! The Inn is located on a large beautiful piece of property that is quiet and calming. The Inn owners, Melissa and Ray, really made you feel at home. The breakfasts we had each morning, cooked by Melissa, were delicious. And the complimentary wine in the evening was a very nice touch. Our room was both elegant and cozy. The fireplace was inviting, the king bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were luxurious! (So nice we purchased a set) We have stayed in many places all over the world and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in. JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!!!


Perfect place to see the fall foilage

5 on November 11, 2014

Traveling from Jacksonville, FL. Wanted to experience something more than just a view of a hotel chain parking lot - especially in the fall. Steeles Tavern B & B was perfect. Property is large and has paths I could use that went into the forest. Inn Keepers were very friendly and down-to-earth. Breakfast's were excellent. Had the best sleep I've had in years.


Fantastic Experience!

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. everything about Steele's Tavern Manor was exceptional. The Alexanders are first class owners of a warm and hospitable property. We would definitely return and have already recommended the B&B to friends.


A wonderful experience

5 on October 09, 2014

My husband and I stayed here overnight during a road trip we took in early September. We were so impressed - Melissa and Ray went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and they were so friendly and sweet. The food was delicious and Melissa was happy to accommodate my eating restrictions. We would definitely go back to Steeles Tavern if we're traveling through Virginia again in the future, and will recommend the experience to others. Thank you so much for making our stay wonderful!


Wonderful, Relaxing B&B

4.0 on September 30, 2014

Thank you Ray and Melissa for a fantastic stay! We enjoyed our weekend get-away so very much - it was just the type of place and weekend we needed to disconnect from the stresses at work and home and reconnect with each other. Melissa is an outstanding cook (amazing chocolate-chip cookies!). Breakfast was filling and delicious. We felt so taken care of and cozy at Steeles Tavern and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a B&B in the area!


great get away

Highly recommend this B & B! Super friendly, helpful and hospitable hosts. Warm and inviting home. All comforts looked after - and if something found missing, just ask! Great breakfasts, too. You won't be sorry you went!
