Excellent breakfast and hospitality!

We went there for our anniversary weekend and we had a great time. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating and the room was comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was simply amazing! Beautiful presentation, tasty and filling. There are wineries nearby and activities such as canoeing and kayaking if you're into that. Overall, I would highly recommend the inn to anyone who wants to escape from the city for a weekend and have a relaxing time.


Lovely place

Wonder Inn !

We were traveling to the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped in Harrisonburg Virginia. The welcome center helped us find this wonderful B & B . We were extremely pleased ! The owner and staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. This is a very clean, charming and well kept inn. The breakfast was fantastic ! Wish we could have stayed longer.

What a lovely B&B. The entire staff made us feel right at home and were very attentive. It is a well maintained B&B and is walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again

A must place to stay in Harrisonburg, VA!

The Stonewall Jackson Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Harrisonburg, VA. The inn is quite lovely and is located just a short walk from Historic Downtown. The service is fabulous and breakfast is the perfect way to start to day!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for taking the time to write and post this review for us and for the folks that read reviews in order to find just the right place for their stay. You nailed two important things about us: Downtown location with easy access to the Arts & Culinary District and our fabulous "Breakfast to Remember" which was selected to be listed as being top 20 B&B breakfasts in the nation by "The Daily Meal" folks.


Exceeded my expectations!

4.6 on May 11, 2016

I don't always trust reviews I read online but this time they were right on target. The location is great. The house was unbelievably clean and the staff was so friendly! And yes, the breakfast of fresh fruit cup, Eggs Benedict made with local cured ham and hash was one to remember! Best Eggs Benedict my wife and I have ever had! And the owner Wayne is quite charming. We plan to return in a month or two.


Like staying with family

5 on February 14, 2016

We were looking for a new experience in a new town and this fit the bill to perfection. From the time I made the reservation the entire staff was responsive to every question and need. They offered to make dinner reservations and gave recommendations for local restaurants. They called early in the week to confirm our stay and solidified our dinner reservations. I ordered the wine trail package and it was ready and waiting when we arrived. Bob and Renee greeted us warmly and offered to bring in our bags. Bob called and confirmed our reservation and they both walked us through the house and went through the details of our room. We got the Chamberlain room which has a gas fireplace. The room was more spacious than I imagined and had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay. The breakfasts are truly memorable and Bob paid attention to each guest and their particular desires. The entire staff treated us with affection and warmth and truly made us feel welcome and like family. They were so attentive to every detail. We cannot recommend this place highly enough and can't wait to visit again.


Definitely Delightful

Service. The people who run and work at this Inn exemplify it very well. During an epic road trip our car failed. My sons and I were in a pickle. The care given to us while I decided our next action gave me strength and determination to continue. The rooms and beds and sitting areas were gracious and comfortable. Onsite Dining. Breakfast at the Stonewall Jackson is a delight that you will be happy to have experienced!
