I spent some time trying to decide where to take a short weekend trip away from DC for my wife's birthday. After searching online, I decided to go with The Iris Inn. We booked one of the newer cabin rooms, and were not disappointed. The cabin was basically a spacious efficiency apartment. It featured a small kitchen area, a dining room table for two, a love seat, a king-size bed, a wonderful bathroom, and a private screened-in deck with a hot tub. My wife and I went out for dinner one night and cooked in the other. Breakfast was taken care of by the Inn, with a delicious meal both days (try to corned beef hash, if its on the menu). When we arrived, Dave was pouring free wine at his "wine bar." Dave and his wife, Heidi, were both wonderful, friendly people who clearly seem to enjoy hosting. The staff was wonderful, including Katie (Katy?), the inn dog. It was a perfect romantic weekend. If you're looking for a view of the valley, I'd recommend looking at cabin 4, and maybe 3 or 5. We were in Cabin 1, which may offer the most privacy, but is set in the trees. The view of nature (including a mother bird feeding her young in a nest built into the side of the cabin) was beautiful, but it may not be what you're expecting. In the end, it was perfect for us.

My wife and I spent four nights in one of the cabins. This was our second stay at the Iris Inn. The cabins are wonderful and very functional. The bed and especially the sheets are special (very soft and cozy). The service is very good. The breakfast is very tasty. The happy hour with wine (and other drinks) is a nice feature. There are several good restaurants in the vicinity (Staunton, Charlottesville). The Shenandoah National Park is close by and offers a lot of good hiking trails. We are sure that we will be back.

What a wonderful place to stay. The service is exceptional, from my first phone call until we left after a 2 night stay. The rooms are spacious and quiet. This is our second stay at this location to visit a new granddaughter. The view from the front porch is exceptional. We stayed in the Duck room in the Inn, previously in a cabin both are great. Wine offered in the evening is nice. The rooms are large and spacious.The bed is so comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful. The recommendation for restaurants is great. You are close to Blue Ridge Parkway, spring is arriving with the tree's putting on their spring dresses.

We had a great time. The cabins are really nice and have great views. Other than the internet being somewhat spotty, we enjoyed everything. It was so nice having our own hot tub with a scenic view. The breakfast was delicious as well.

Our children gave us 2 nights here as a Christmas gift, I was so excited, even thought my husband really doesn't like B&B's he was very comfortable here. We both were so pleased with the service we received from all of the staff. Breakfast was amazing, fireplace so inviting. Meeting other guests & making friends, good conversations & evening wine tasting was a real treat. My daughter had Choc. covered Strawberries sent to room with a great wine I had tasted there. What a great job Lara did on those "so delish" she was so friendly & helpful each evening. Glenn was such an awesome host & server for our breakfast & it was so nice of Dave to come in to great all of the guests. Can't wait for another stay!

From location, to rooms, to pleasant innkeeper and staff, to thoughtful touches, our stay at The Iris Inn made for a very memorable weekend. With easy access from highways, and to interesting neighboring towns, once in the Iris Inn we felt that we were in a secluded mountain retreat. With a welcoming fire and wine hour, we quickly relaxed and left the rush and worries of city life behind. The staff were friendly and informative and created a comfortable ambiance. Our room, in the main building was large, spotlessly clean and made us feel pampered. The bed and bedding was superbly comfortable and the chocolates every day were a lovely touch. The tone for each day was set with a delectable, hot, freshly cooked breakfast. The area provided so much to see and do that we ran out of time and have vowed to return in every season to enjoy all that the area has to offer. What a find!

This was our first excursion to the Iris Inn and it turned out to be an excellent experience. We stayed at the inn itself versus one of the cabins. The room was very nice with a view overlooking the valley. It was also very convenient to the afternoon wine tasting and morning breakfast. Cabins have more amenities such as kitchen facilities, fireplace and hot tub. Friends were staying in one of the cabins, so we were able to check out the accommodations there. Owners Heidi and Dave are very accommodating and go out of their way to make guests feel at home. Even if it's your first visit, they act as if they'd met you before. Breakfast in the morning is very good. Service is great and staff couldn't be nicer. Highly recommend Iris Inn if you're looking for a B&B in the Waynesboro/Staunton area. We'll be back.

I hate BnBs. My wife loves them. She loves the quaint elegance and getting to know the staff. I hate tiny rooms and shared bathrooms. The Iris Inn is perfect. It is perfectly situated between fun towns and great hikes. The suites and cabins (we have stayed in both now) are spacious and full of amenities. My wife barely spent time outside of the hot tub. Of course there are no shared bathrooms and I don't mind making sure I'm up for breakfast, because it's amazing! The staff is so friendly as are the owners in a low-key, witty kind if way that doesn't make you feel like you're talking to your grandparents, and your privacy is assumed and protected by the staff without anyone knocking on your door all of the time. My wife gets her friendly staff and beautiful decor and I get luxurious amenities and privacy. I like the staff, too. You should really stay here.

I rarely write reviews. I travel often and have stayed at many hotels, resorts, b&b's and cabins. My wife and I stayed in one of the cabins and loved it. The cabins are modern, clean and excellent overall. The innkeepers/staff were very accommodating and very friendly. We had a short stay but we definitely want to return
