Stayed at Steele's Tavern for 2 wonderful nights.. Melissa and Ray are very genuine people and excellent hosts. The grounds and house are beautiful and the rooms are enormously comfortable. The food is outstanding and the "happy hours" each night were a delight. We will definitely stay again!!

My girlfriend and I visited for a long weekend at the end of March. While the rooms, amenities and food were all first rate, what really "made" the weekend is the personal touch of Ray and Melissa on everything. From the nightly happy hours, to the very honest and knowledgeable reviews of local restaurants and places of interest, to the friendly conversations after the outstanding breakfasts, they really make you feel a welcome guest and at home at the same time. And we got to meet their wonderful new puppy at his homecoming! We definitely plan to return, and maybe try out a cabin next time. We look forward to hearing and seeing updates on Bacchus on the blog, and congratulations to Ray and Melissa on the upcoming marriage of their son.

My husband and I spent our 44th wedding anniversary at Steels Tavern. What a wonderful choice. Ray and Melissa immediately made us feel at home. They both are such wonderful host. The Tavern is beautifully decorated and had all the amenities. Melissa's breakfast were so good. We loved getting coffee in the morning and sitting on the side porch. We really enjoyed have breakfast with the other guest. Ray and Melissa would join the guest towards the end of the breakfast to inquire about our days plans. They were always ready with helpful tips and advice on things to do in the area. The 5:30 cocktails in the common room were very relaxing. We enjoyed nibbling on the tasty treats and sharing our day's adventures with Ray and Melissa. We loved their new black lab puppy. He will make a great addition to help welcome quest. Best experience ever.

We had a wonderful stay at the Steeles Tavern Manor. It's a beautiful B&B, warm and inviting with a scenic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our room was gorgeous; we loved the fireplace and whirlpool tub! Melissa and Ray are the most gracious hosts; they made us feel like we were staying with old friends. We enjoyed tasting wine at a local winery and sampling the beer at a local brewery. Melissa is a wonderful cook and baker (our complimentary bag of cookies was eaten before we got home). The breakfast was fantastic, as was the service. We look forward to staying here again. This was our best B&B experience ever! Laura & Rick

We have just returned from a weekend at Steeles Tavern Manor, and hosts Ray and Melissa. From the happy hour with local wine and cheeses to delicious and filling breakfasts, we were well fed. Our Chardonnay Room in this wine-themed B&B was lovely, espcially the sitting room with fireplace. Comfortable bed with luxurious linens, and lush, plush robe for each of us. This is the nicest B&B we have had the pleasure of experiencing, and Ray and Melissa were great hosts.

Ray and Melissa have the most beautiful home that they shared with us. They are both very welcoming and have a lot of information about the area. The room was amazing and the food was scrumptious. I added the Celebration package to our stay and had a birthday cake waiting for my husband when we got there. Everything was perfect on our arrival. We more than enjoyed our stay and can't say enough positive things about this bed and breakfast.

The Steeles Tavern Manor B&B offers the best of creature comforts in an idyllic setting. Ray and Melissa are tremendous hosts with a great set of recommendations for daily activities and dinner options. They prepare a wonderful breakfast daily and have a 'happy hour' with local wines/beers as well as great appetizers in the late afternoon. This is a great way to get to know the hosts as well as other guests. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The grounds are the best we have experienced with a pool, pond and private stream. Will recommend to friends!
