Room With A View

5 on April 16, 2014

Dave, Heidi, Glenn and staff, What an amazing place you have! We live in Strasburg, VA (about an hour north of you) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River and consider our home a paradise. I wanted to take my husband on a surprise birthday adventure and when I saw the write up on your Inn in the Coop magazine, I decided to make that the place to go and we were both SOOOOO impressed and delighted with the entire experience. After hiking Humpback Rocks, we arrived tired and since I brought the fixings for dinner and champagne, we elected to get into the sumptuous robes provided by you and eat on the deck overlooking the Valley watching the sunset and then jumping into the hot tub to sooth our weary bones and eat the chocolate covered strawberries (requested by me on short notice and provided by you) and drink champagne while reviewing our delightful day! Thanks for making the birthday a very special event. Even though we have a beautiful home and view, I will definitely be back to enjoy your magnificent Couples Cabins soon and will tell all my friends about your place.


Charming Retreat

5 on April 01, 2014

We couldn't have been more happy with our stay at the Iris Inn. We were traveling to the area and had booked another B&B. After a friend STRONGLY recommended we stay at Iris Inn, we canceled our other reservation and booked at the Inn. The website with pictures of the stunning views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley was enough to convince us. We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome from Dave, Heidi and their dog Katie. The views were even more beautiful in-person (we stayed in the Wall Flower room – it was gorgeous!) and each person we met at the Inn was friendly, welcoming and very sweet. Breakfast in the mornings was fantastic (we cleaned our plates every time!) and the wine in the evenings was a nice chance to wind down and meet other guests. We traveled to Charlottesville each day we were there (we had meetings and plans with friends) but the Inn was a very easy drive (a straight shot on 65). We would definitely recommend Iris Inn to any friends and family that are coming to the area. The room we stayed in was spacious, very well-kept, clean and nicely decorated – and had a wonderful west-facing balcony where you could enjoy the mountain air and watch the sun set in the evenings. We were very happy we ended up staying at Iris Inn!!


CHARMING AND COZY B&B!!

The Iris Inn is charming and quaint - a must if you're looking to reconnect with nature and your loved ones! Dave & Heidi, the Inn owners, are friendly and very helpful - they had great restaurant owners!


I hesitate to review..

4.8 on March 31, 2014

I hesitate to submit a review because of how great this place is... I hope it doesn't get too busy for our return visit! We stayed in one of the cabins on the hill. With two young kids (3 years old and 6 months), we were in desperate need of a getaway - even though it was only one night. The cabin is nearly perfect. Hot tub already running awaits you, a huge rain-like shower overhead (i'm tall, and it was nice not to have to duck under the shower head), a very modern bedroom/bathroom, with a gas fireplace and QUALITY windows and doors keeping outside noise out. It rained/snowed while were there, which made it scenic and comfy to be indoors and we enjoyed eveyr second of it. The downtown was close and easy to navigate and we enjoyed that as well... Breakfast in the morning was ready and waiting for us and it was a nice send off. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the best part is their guarantee that NOBODY will call or bother you at all on the trip. You're in isolation all weekend without anything around you to bother you or be in the way. We're already planning a longer trip back... and we hope they keep things as great as they already are!


TOO WONDERFUL FOR WORDS

Every amenity you could ever wish for has been prearranged at Iris Inn by Dave, Heidi and their amazing staff.You will love every minute you are here and wish to return again and again While Waynesboro lacks charm, surrounding towns have much to offer in sights and fine dining and outdoor sport activities.
