Lovely Getaway weekend

5 on July 10, 2014

Thank you so much for a lovely getaway weekend. We do LOVE coming to the Iris Inn, and we are now hooked on a minimum of two night stay. I wanted to thank you for the recommendation for our visit to Staunton yesterday morning. We loved the Farmer's market (enjoyed delicious cheddar cheese and garlic pickles with our wine picnic today AND fresh gourmet greens for our salad last night with our Crozet pizza), the Sun Spot (I have a beautiful clear teal vase with a dark blue rim, milk bottle shaped), Fretwell Base and Acoustic Instruments (wow!) and a variety of other delightful shops including the Red Beard Brewery. As much as we wanted to visit the Woodrow Wilson home and Presidential library, we opted to wait for a future colder weather visit as we simply could not bear to stay inside on a beautiful day. So it will be on our agenda for sure when we return in the winter (assuming we can WAIT until then). The couples Cabins are superb in every way...thanks again. Pamela & Mike


The BEST Bed and Breakfast

5 on June 25, 2014

We have stayed in many B and B's, through the years, but the Iris Inn was definitely the BEST. Heidi and Dave and their staff were wonderful, friendly hosts, We stayed for 2 night in June 2014. . The breakfasts were scrumptious and the evening wine gathering was a nice chance to meet with other guests. The grounds, our room (Deer Room) and the views were a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world! The location is very convenient to the Shenandoah National Park, wineries, and Monticello in Charlottesville. Well worth the price!!!


Perfect basecamp for the region

5 on June 23, 2014

We stayed in a cabin at the Iris Inn for two nights and three days in June. Although we weren't familiar with the area, we ended up visiting five different wineries, saw a polo match, and went horseback riding, all at the recommendation of the innkeepers Dave, Heidi, and Glen. They were as knowledgeable about the region as they were passionate, and we just felt very comfortable with their suggestions as we tried to determine which wineries would be the best fit for us. We even had a small tasting with Dave! The cabin we were staying in was beautiful, clean, and spacious with every amenity we could have hoped for. Although the days were full and interesting in the surrounding area, we were almost disappointed that we simply didn't set aside more time to relax and enjoy the view back at the inn (especially for the sunset.) We will definitely be back again, perhaps in the winter for a change of scenery. Would definitely recommend to friends and family; don't miss out on the incredible cabins!


Love this place!

5 on June 23, 2014

We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights in cabin #6. The cabin looks just like the photos on the website. Heidi and Dave really go out of their way to make sure that your stay is perfect. Every night you are invited for a glass of wine at the main part of the Inn. Breakfasts were yummy but if you want something different they are very accommodating. The Inn is close to hiking, wineries, and history. Amazon place!


An incredible Bed and Breakfest

4.6 on June 19, 2014

Britt & Debbie Hughson We just stayed at the Iris Inn this June... The rooms were beautiful and the amenities outstanding. Stayed 2 nights and wished for more. Dave and Heidi as well as the staff made us feel like part of the family and provided us with great service. We will be returning for more stays here. We can;t say enough about how much we loved staying here.


Gracious hosts

5 on June 09, 2014

We stayed at the inn as part of a wedding party. Our stay was delightful however our stay was prolonged due to car problem. Our hosts let us stay for two extra nights, in the same room, at a minimal price that we could have obtained at local hotels. We sincerely appreciated their hospitality.


Fantastic stay!

5 on June 02, 2014

We are from nearby Charlottesville, and were looking for a romantic place to stay the weekend, but still be close to home in case something came up. We have stayed in tons of B&B's all over the east coast and in the UK. This one is one of the best. We stayed in Cabin #4 (recommended by the owners as the best view) and it had every amenity you could think of: big bed, screened'in (read: bug-free) private porch with rocking chairs and private hot tub, fireplace, kitchenette with dishwasher, huge tv and reclining couch to watch it from, grill, amazing updated bathroom with rain shower, I could go on and on. The view of the sunset was incredible. The owners and staff were very kind, booked us dinner reservations and had wonderful recommendations about area attractions. Breakfast was simple, fresh, and delicious (I can't stand fru-fru B&B breakfasts that leave you still hungry). Of note, to protect guests privacy, housekeeping does not come into your room during your stay. They say that they can come bring you any needed supplies but we had plenty of towels, etc. in the room for our two-night stay. The cabins are pretty expensive but for all the amenities plus the view, we got our money's worth!


Stunning & Beautiful doesn't do justice

5 on April 27, 2014

This really was the most beautiful place to stay on our first visit to America from Scotland. The Inn itself is sympathetically and elegantly designed yet manages to have a cosy feel, this due to the friendly owners. Heidi's well thought out and scrumptious breakfasts kept us going all day and Dave's glass of wine in the evening was a nice touch.The rooms were beautiful and to sit on the balcony on swing chairs in the morning with a coffee, just relaxing was so lovely, As for the evenings, again sitting on the swings (we did too much of that and we are not a couple that relaxes much, but the Iris inn makes you!!). Just sitting dreaming, and watching the stunning sunsets over the Shendandoah Valley & Mountains that almost look photoshopped, make this such a very special place to be. We only wish we had more time. We really cannot recommend nor praise this place highly enough.


Weekend Gateway

2.6 on April 21, 2014

we have been to quite a few B&B in the area, and have heard lots good thing about this place, so we have decided to spend a weekend over there , originally we were hoping to stay at the cabin, ( which I believe it would probably be much nicer) but it was sold out at the time so we have decided to book the main building room instead, the view from the porch was beautiful, room was clean, however, we were very disappointed about the breakfast, at first, the dining room was small and can't really accommodate all the guests, and there was only one type of breakfast, meaning there was no other choice at all, although the food was fresh, but portion was really small, we were still hungry after that. if I ever going to visit this place again, surely I will book the cabin and bring my own food to cook


Room With A View

5 on April 16, 2014

Dave, Heidi, Glenn and staff, What an amazing place you have! We live in Strasburg, VA (about an hour north of you) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River and consider our home a paradise. I wanted to take my husband on a surprise birthday adventure and when I saw the write up on your Inn in the Coop magazine, I decided to make that the place to go and we were both SOOOOO impressed and delighted with the entire experience. After hiking Humpback Rocks, we arrived tired and since I brought the fixings for dinner and champagne, we elected to get into the sumptuous robes provided by you and eat on the deck overlooking the Valley watching the sunset and then jumping into the hot tub to sooth our weary bones and eat the chocolate covered strawberries (requested by me on short notice and provided by you) and drink champagne while reviewing our delightful day! Thanks for making the birthday a very special event. Even though we have a beautiful home and view, I will definitely be back to enjoy your magnificent Couples Cabins soon and will tell all my friends about your place.
