Minutes from Lexington, yet in another world, with only woods, hillside pastures filled with llamas, and mountain views greeting the eyes.The drive from Rte. 11 to Applewood is only 1 1/2 m. but on that drive you will wind along the scenic Buffalo Creek, enter Donald's Hollow, pass a horse farm, then enter the inn's lower meadow which follows a babbling brook. The passive solar construction provides huge enclosed porches from which to observe this piece of heaven. Most rooms have gas log fireplaces and either hot-tub or jacuzzi tub. Lavish full breakfast. Special diets accommodated. Llama trekking available on site.

I was looking for a place to spend a few days of my daughter's spring break. We found Applewood on-line and had the best few days. Linda, Chris and the Llama's are great! I am looking forward to another trip through Virginia so I can stay again.

A perfect warm place to spend a cold rainy afternoon and evening in February. The scenic view from the top of the hill was well worth the breezy walk. Nice breakfast on a quiet morning with two very friendly Innkeepers. Paul and Lisa

This is a unique property, with large comfortable bedrooms and full baths. The views, solitude, and Llamas on the property take away any stress you are hoping to shed. A short 4 miles from historic Lexington and near many VA wine makers, etc. you can access this B&B from several pathways. Chris and Linda are very helpful and care for your needs. Being pet friendly is a great plus!! I visited during the off season mid- week and was the only guest. Linda's lovely artwork is displayed and invites stories.

My partner and I spent the weekend at Applewood Inn and we greatly enjoyed it. Inn Keepers, Linda and Chris, are absolutely delightful and very personable. I highly recommend doing the llama trek, which will give you the opportunity to walk, relax and enjoy the beautiful views. Breakfast was delicious, and conversations at the table with Linda, Chris and guests was very special.

Great location, nice, clean, comfortable. The hosts were great, breakfast was very good and met my dietary needs. The llamas are interesting and fun to watch. The drive along the creek to the inn is nice and stopping along the creek to hear the water gurgling is very relaxing. Highly recommend

We had an outstanding visit here. It's in the middle of the country - very peaceful. A beautiful part of Virginia. We were lucky enough to do a llama trek which was fantastic. Breakfast - outstanding.

Clean room, nice location for visiting natural bridge, safari zoo, and Foam hinge! A lovely place to have a picnic at the top of their hill. Couple that runs the inn are very nice!

Great place to stay if you prefer being out in a more rural area with beautiful mountain views! Hot tub was wonderful, breakfast nutritious and delicious. Unfortunately there were no llama treks the morning we stayed, but still were able to see them during breakfast and sit with them after which was neat. Be sure to check out the nearby Animal Safari park!
