The Country Inn at High View is a beautiful new construction established in October, 2005. The inn is located at the highest point on 200 acres overlooking beautiful mountain views. Only 20 minutes from Winchester, VA and 90 miles from Washington, DC, the inn offers a wonderful country experience. Guests can spend time relaxing, reading, swimming, hiking, anitiquing, watching the wild-life or sightseeing in Old Town Winchester. You are welcome to enjoy the days of country living and simpler times in this lovely country inn.
The Harvest Room is for special couples celebrating those occasions when they want to relax by the fireplace. Located on the first floor, it overlooks the spacious front porch and beautiful mountain views. Decorated in cherry furniture handcrafted by the Amish and accented with a lovely handmade Amish Quilt and window treatments, the queen size bed is just what is needed after a warm jacuzzi bath. The innkeepers make it a tradition to offer a turndown service.
What a welcoming "country" room with the beautiful reds, greens, creams and blacks. Amish handcrafted furniture with a queen size bed and warm cozy fireplace is just what is needed for that relaxing stay. A beautiful patchwork Amish quilt and matching window treatments highlights the Sleigh room as it overlooks the meadow and magnificent mountain views. The Sleigh Room is a favorite of our guests. Turndown service is a tradition of the innkeepers.
A favorite among guests, the Cherry Room is beautifully decorated in yellows and blues. Handcrafted Amish furniture in a darker cherry wood gives this room its name. Lovely matching window treatments and rugs are exactly what gives this room its country flavor. The fireplace is inviting on those cool days and nights. Overlooking a beautiful pool and mountains, the Cherry Room is waiting for hot days and nights. The innkeepers enjoy offering a turndown service for their guests.
The Pine Room overlooks a beautiful view of North Mountain and the magnificent pool and pool area. All the furnishings are matching Tom Seeley reproductions from the tall queen size poster bed to the quilt rack making the greens sparkle against the oak flooring. A lovely sitting area is the perfect spot for reading or just relaxing. The bathroom is decorated in various shades of green colors to match the lovely Pine Room. This room is a favorite of the innkeepers. A turndown service is a tradition with the innkeepers as they love "spoiling" their guests.
The granary is a special guest house and was an "old" granary that was used to store grain. You won't believe how beautiful the granary is with its family room, dinette area, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Lovely Amish bedroom furniture in a sage green and matching Amish quilt and window treatments are so inviting. A small deck overlooks a meadow and pond where the deer love to graze. The granary has a gas stove and TV for the guests' enjoyment. The granary is definitely a special "guest house."

I was looking to take a trip to Virginia/West Virginia to enjoy the autumn season. With the reviews I read on this site, I decided to give The Country Inn a try. Boy, am I glad I did!!! This place was even better than advertised, if that is possible. Excellent southern hospitality from Gail and Grant, like spending time with family. Both are knowledgeable on the area, where to eat, where to shop, where the scenic drives are. The entire home is immaculate, and decorated for the Autumn season; would love to see the home during Christmas! Gails breakfasts are to die for; best waffles I have ever eaten, practically melted in my mouth. If you are in the Winchester area, don't miss out on this place, I am glad I didn't!

My husband and I truly enjoyed this beautiful B&B. From the drive up the gravel road through the woods to the home to meet Gail and Grant, we were in awe. Gail and Grant are such wonderful hosts. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. Gail gave us a tour and asked us about dinner plans and set up a reservation for us at the Lost River and Brewery, which was just perfect for us. This B&B is very clean and absolutely gorgeous. There was so much to look at as we walked throughout this well decorated home. The views are just breathtaking from any side of the home! We enjoyed staying in the Harvest room which had a jacuzzi tub, a nice fireplace, a cozy sitting area and a very soft comfy bed. We did not want to leave! We felt very comfortable staying here. Gail made us a three-course breakfast. It was fantastic! Anything we needed, was available to us. Loved loved loved this place. We definitely would love to return if we were ever back in WV! Thanks Gail and Grant for being such wonderful Hosts and sharing your home with us! Tyann and Jared

Good news and bad news. Good news that my work enabled us to discover this spectacular gem tucked in the hills. The bad news is we only had one night to enjoy it. Everything about this serene facility was spectacular ... from the impeccable decorations, to the immaculate cleanliness of every room, right down to each nook and cranny. And whoever heard of a 3 course breakfast? Well, I am a believer. Gail loves to cook, and it shows. Grant takes pride in the grounds, and it shows. Combined, they are the consummate hosts! Don't miss this place if you are any where in the vicinity!

Staying at the Country Inn was one of the highlights of our vacation. Everything is done to perfection... the breakfasts were not only delicious but met our dietary restrictions and yet were moist, fresh and varied. The aesthetics of the rooms, dining area, everyplace you went there was not a think out of place. The attention to detail, the balance of color and comfort, the high quality of linens, towels were beyond expectations. I walked around the house looking at all the beautiful artifacts which took me to another place and time. Gail and Grant are gracious hosts who want to fulfill their guests needs. They suggested places to eat and where to go and were always available to insure our comfort. I would give the whole experience 6 stars if I could.
