romantic getaway for 2.

5 on May 25, 2015

This B&B was suggested to us by a friend for its charm and unique character. We stayed in the Robert E Lee room, it was very warm and inviting. The antique decor was a very nice touch. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It made us feel very special that they knew our names and greeted us as such everytime we were in their presence. Our reservation included the romance package. When we arrived to our room, there were two dozen roses and chocolate truffles awaiting our arrival, after dinner we had a couples massage in our room. This 2 hour massage was the best we have ever had! The "breakfast to remember" is exactly that. it was amazing sitting out on the deck enjoying the birds chirp while enjoying our breakfast! We particularly loved the apple chutney, it was devine. Everything was lovely, I will definitly recommend this B&B. Paul & Nicole


Stellar B&B

5 on May 23, 2015

To say the owner and staff have left no stone unturned is an understatement. From the friendly welcome we received at arrival, help with our luggage, recommendations of area attractions and restaurants, to a fabulous breakfast in the morning, everything was perfect. Bob and Renee were so friendly and accommodating. We were so happy to meet Aurilia and Anthony before they left for a well deserved getaway and Wayne made sure all was perfect. We could not have planned a better 29th wedding anniversary getaway and would recommend the Stonewall Jackson Inn again and again. Southern hospitality at its best.


A Wonderful Getaway

5 on May 19, 2015

We needed a chance to get away from the city, and we are so happy we chose the Stonewall Jackson Inn. The staff was warm and hospitable, the room was very comfortable, and the breakfasts were high quality and second-to-none. The location is great - walking distance to restaurants and nightlife, and an easy drive to the Shenandoah Valley for hiking and outdoor excursions. I highly recommend the Stonewall Jackson Inn.


Charming, Friendly, & Comfortable

5 on May 17, 2015

What a fabulous experience! Wayne and the Stonewall Jackson were charming and although my stay was brief, I greatly enjoyed my night at the Stonewall. Wayne gave personalized, excellent customer service--incidentally, I was in town to present on that very topic. He is also very involved in his community, from the library to local attractions and restaurants. My room was lovely and comfortable, and I only wish I could have stayed longer. Thank you to Wayne and his staff!


A wonderful stay

5 on May 02, 2015

We stayed two evenings at the Stonewall Jackson Inn, in the Philip Sheridan room. Everything about our stay was perfect. The confirmation email was full of sightseeing opportunities and dining recommendations. I had requested a dozen roses in the room for my wife. Aurilia called the day before arrival to ask about the preferred colors. And, there were more than a dozen beautiful roses when we arrived. Anthony's breakfast creations were wonderful, a reflection of his culinary institute training. Dr. Engel was a gracious and warm host. The inn was spotless and very comfortable with many places inside and out to relax. The room provided a great place to relax and sleep. The inn is close to downtown and many restaurants, yet nature-related activities like hiking and fishing are a short drive away. We will visit again when in the area.


Quick but pleasant stay

4.2 on May 01, 2015

The staff at the SJI really made the lasting impression here. The welcome I received on arrival made me feel like being welcomed home by family. It was a bit surreal actually. The room I had was nice but having stayed in many B&B's over the years I can honestly say it didn't have anything special. The breakfast was touted as being a truely wonderful experience but again, I found it to be just so-so. Definitely not a breakfast to remember. I would stay here again because the staff was very nice and it is a convenient location. Just don't think it's quite 'all that' the description would have you believe.


Great Find

4.4 on April 23, 2015

I've stayed here twice now, both times they've been very accommodating of our needs. This last time, Coming in late, breakfast earlier than usual, and later than usual checkout. All a "no-problem" ask for them. Rooms are nice, walk-able to downtown, considering how close it is to rt. 33 its very quiet. Our rooms have been on the front of the house both times, very quiet at night.


The Happiest of Mini Honeymoons!

4.2 on November 19, 2014

My husband and I decided to take a mini honeymoon in the Shenandoah before returning to our grueling federal government schedule. What a gem this place was! Our new-found friends, the innkeepers, Paul and Candice were the most attentive, sweet, and knowledgeable people. Dr. Wayne Engle, the owner, is a marvel among men. You'll understand when you meet him! And can I just say BREAKFAST!!!?? Absolutely incredible. I have traveled the world, and eaten in the street stalls of Southeast Asia to the world renowned restaurants of Paris, Tuscany, Dubai, Tokyo, and the Hague and Paul's eggs Benedict tops most of them. We also got massages and the wine and cheese package. Great wine...good cheese. What we really loved about this place, is that you can do as much or as little as you want to. We went horseback riding at the Star B Stables, great fun! Had dinner at Clementine’s, L'Italia, and the Chop House, all very good. We even sat out for an evening and had cigars and wine out on the patio with Paul, Candice, and their new intern. THAT'S how much we loved them! There is also a delightful new addition to downtown Harrisonburg that my husband and I were thrilled to patron. Jimmy Madison's .....a bourbon bar. That's right....for two bourbon connoisseurs, it doesn't get much better than that. The highlight of our trip was our wine tasting tour. We visited Barrenridge, Bluestone, and Cross Keys. All lovely. FANTASTIC wine. We hired a town car to drive us on the wine tour which Paul was delighted to do for us. If you decide to do the same...ask for Delila. She was our driver, and she was phenomenal. Our room was always clean and freshened up. We were always able to find someone if we needed something, and we were treated like family from the second we walked through the door. We will be counting the days here in Northern VA until we are able to go back, as we plan to make this a regular getaway spot. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay!


Well organized B&B

4.0 on November 03, 2014

A well run B&B with perhaps the best breakfast anyone could ask for. Good location with places to eat nearby. Yes we would recommend this B&B and may return.


Beautiful Inn, Great Location!

5 on October 27, 2014

My husband and I went to the Stonewall Jackson Inn for a long weekend away to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and friendly. We really enjoyed mornings on the back deck eating our breakfast. The sunrise was amazing to watch! The location of the Inn is perfect. We were able to enjoy the great restaurants in downtown Harrisonburg, as well as civil war battlefields, Cross Key winery and Grand Caverns all within 30 minutes. Since we were there near Halloween time, we also stopped in on several haunted activities, including a walking tour through downtown Harrisonburg to hear ghost stories about some of the old buildings. It was so much fun
