Acorn Inn offers three charming lodging options, all including a generous "continental plus" breakfast of homemade breads and fruit cobbler in season. The Cottage (kitchen/bath) sleeps a family of four comfortably, and is perfect for those seeking privacy. The Inn - once a horse stable, now a contemporary lodge filled with tapestries, masks, and international folk art - features ten cozy bedrooms, a skylit lounge with cathedral ceiling, soapstone fireplace, two kitchenettes and men's and women's baths/showers. An 800-square-foot meeting room (Reception Gallery), makes it ideal for corporate retreats, creative workshops, reunions or group events of any kind. The Farmhouse, home of the innkeepers, has two queen-bedded guest rooms, sharing a bath, and is open only when Cottage and Inn are fully occupied. Kathy is an accomplished photographer/printmaker and Martin is a carpenter and world-class cyclist from the Netherlands.

A gem!

5 on August 22, 2013

A true gem in a great area of Virginia! Rockfish Valley is an absolute treasure for those seeking the best that Virginia has to offer. The Acorn Inn provides a perfect respite for those visiting the great wineries, brewpubs, and taking advantage of the stellar hiking and cycling the area has to offer.

Labourday Weekend Stay

5 on May 29, 2013

This is the third year in a row that I've stayed at the Acorn Inn and my plan is to continue to come back at last once a year. Kathy and Martin are very accommodating. They always have strong coffee, a great breakfast, and have fantastic ideas for things to do around the area. I stay at the studio and it's a beautiful place with a deck overlooking the mountains. The beds are always clean and neat, as are the bathrooms. Highly recommended. Kathy and Martin make me feel at home.

Three Times In A Row -

5 on May 29, 2013

We have stayed here for multi-day events on three occasions and would recommend the inn, the innkeepers, and the locale to anyone. The location is sublime. The attention to detail was spot on. The area is beautiful. Martin and Kathy made us feel like lifelong friends rather than "just" guests. We'll return any and every time we're in Nelson County.

A Week in a Horse Stall

5 on October 30, 2010

October in Nelson county is beautiful, and Acorn Inn was perfect! Kathy and Martin are very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The rooms (stalls!) are cozy and comfortable, the bathrooms fine, the whole place is spotless. The towels even smell like a mountain morning. But the star of the place is the FOOD! We were totally spoiled by the variety of home made offerings each morning. If you are staying in Nelson county, forget the high-priced places. Stay at Acorn Inn.

My favorite B&B

4.6 on July 08, 2010

For people who want a clean, simple, interesting, friendly, inexpensive place to stay while travelling, or to escape the city for a few days, the Acorn Inn is a wonderful place. Perfect for gatherings of like-minded friends or family.
