About

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.

Great Experience!

Chris and Linda were great hosts, and everything about Applewood was fantastic. The hot tub was relaxing, everything was clean, and the food was delicious. My fiancee and I trekked with Spunky and Striker and it was a brand new, awesome experience!


Overnight Romantic Stay

Applewood Inn is set in the Shenandoah Mountains and such a wonderful, peaceful setting that we found it a wonderful retreat from out busy lives! Highly recommend!


A wonderful weekend!

5 on November 20, 2013

We stayed for two nights in the Quilter's Room. We also included a llama trek on the Saturday morning. Our room was spacious, very clean, comfortable and included lots of thoughtful additions including robes, chocolates, and scented candles. The inn itself was very welcoming, comfortable and felt like a home from home. Not to mention the incredible selection of herbal teas! Breakfast was a lovely social time, with plenty of hot coffee and seconds (and thirds!) of the delicious food. My dietary restrictions were not a problem for the mean cooking skills of Chris :) Nerby attractions include the town of Lexington (friendly boutique shops offering hot cider as you walk through the door), the Shenandoah mountains, and the Rockbridge Winery. Overall, this is a great little place with excellent hosts. Perfect for those who want to relax away from the city, enjoy the great outdoors, and enjoy peace and quiet. Llama trekking was great fun, I'd highly recommend it!


Great place to Unwind

Beautiful Mountain Get Away

Wonderful property and kind hosts. Llama's add to the rustic appeal of this cozy B&B. Close to quaint town of Lexington and many natural and historical attractions. Comfortable and clean room with European soaking tub, perfect for cold evenings. We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here.
