I had an amazing stay at Chestnut Hill B&B! We stayed in the Alexander Daley's Master Suite and as you can see from the pictures it was beautifully decorated and really felt like home. When we arrived Kathy gave us a tour and then took us right up to our room. She even let us see the Bridal Suite just in case we wanted to switch for the night. We got the Romance package and everything went exactly according to plan! The massages were great, she set up dinner for us at one of the restaurants she recommended (which was absolutely amazing), they even had special treats from the chef for us to try, and then brought us breakfast to the room in the morning! My boyfriend was celebrating his birthday and each part of the package was supposed to feel like a surprise and with Kathy's help I was definitely able to make his birthday special.
We wanted a short getaway after the Holiday activities. We enjoyed the B&B tremendously. The accommodations were comfortable and beautiful. I felt like I was home. Service was very good and the breakfast in the morning was very good. Would highly recommend.
What a perfect gem! The renovation produced a perfect blend of retaining period architecture while introducing modern conveniences. The hosts are lovely and accommodating while remaining unobtrusive. Breakfast was excellent and were tips of where to get dinner. The location is ideal for a visit to Barboursville and Horton wineries. Plan to return to enjoy again.
We decided on a last minute New Years getaway to Chestnut Hill B&B. Kathleen welcomed us with open arms and was extremely accommodating given the short notice they had We were given wine tasting tickets and excellent dinner options. They have a family style feel with wine and snacks available all day. Breakfast was delicious and the charming and historic home did not disappoint. We will definitely be returning!
We really enjoyed our time at the Foxfield Inn. Dan and Kathryn were so kind and welcoming. It is clear that they put a lot of time and energy into their bed & breakfast; we left refreshed and rejuvenated (and very well fed!). We will definitely be back!
The place was very clean and beautiful. Troy and Kathleen were very helpful in finding what to do in Orange Virginia. The room was comfortable, and the complimentary drinks and snacks was very pleasant.
Just a few hours drive from Washington, DC, the Iris Inn provides a rural, country, mountain feel while still having being close to everything you need. We stayed 2 weekday nights in the winter and it was peaceful and not at all busy, though I believe the Inn was full. While on our stay, we took scenic and challenging hikes in the George Washington Forest and in Shenandoah National Park both off the Blue Ridge Trail.The growing "151 Trail" for breweries, cideries and distilleries is unmatched in this area. You won't find many fine dining restaurants in the area unless you want to drive into Stanton or Charlottesville, but there are plenty of restaurants around, regardless. Breakfast at the Inn was great. Unrushed and tasty, you won't leave hungry. We also appreciated the mini-fridge in our room stocked daily with water bottles and soda. We hope to return back someday and this time stay in the cabins!
We loved the scenery on the way to the Inn and we were stunned by the size and luxury of our room. We didn't want to leave it! The morning breakfast was incredible both days and we really enjoyed our conversation with fellow guests. We got good tips on local hiking and saw other guests on the trail. The hospitality was wonderful, from check in to check out! We can't wait to go back!
We stayed for one night on the way hime. We have stayed there on numerous occasions. A wonderful place, very clean and nicely furnished. Great location. A great value as it includes happy hour, and a delicious gourmet breakfast.
The owners of the Orchard House B&B are some of the nicest people I've ever met. They went out of their way to be kind and helpful, and I feel that they are now friends. I stayed in the two story farmhouse, with it's own living room and kitchen. My room was spacious and very comfortable and cozy, with two large armchairs, a TV, and a large wonderful bed with lots of pillows. In the kitchen there was a supply of foods for breakfast and I could have cooked a whole meal had I wanted to. This was one of the nicest places, if not the nicest place, I have every stayed. There are also rooms available in the main house, and whether you stay in the farmhouse or in the main house, you can be served a complete breakfast if you like. The surrounding countryside is lovely, and there are spacious grounds on the property.
Every aspect of our stay was enjoyable and relaxing from the initial greeting when we arrived to the wonderful breakfasts to the Inn-sponsored winery tour. We had planned a brewery and winery tour and our hosts were invaluable in selecting several off-the-beaten path locations that ended up being our most favorite of the trip.
Had an AMAZING stay at the foxfield inn! Great find! The innkeepers were delightful and the food was delicious. They serve dessert with breakfast every morning, which is fun and unique. It is a great way to get off the grid and slow down. Do know that means no TV in your room but we watch a game on their common room TV with great relaxation.
Our stay at Orchard House was the perfect end to the busy holiday season. Deb and Mike were gracious hosts. The entire house was decorated in a warm festive way. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. Mike's breakfasts were delicious - excellent recipes right down to the local coffee. They truly go over and above to make sure their guests are happy and comfortable. There is so much to do in the surrounding area that we will have to come back again soon. Thank you for a lovely stay! Denyse &Brennan O'Connor
The innkeepers are great hosts, the property is attractive and comfortable, and breakfast was a treat. We stayed at another B&B later on our trip through VA and felt Orchard House was a class above the ordinary.
Found this location when searching for a location to exchange wedding vows - a "just the two of us" event. Stopped in to take a look, and discovered a beautiful home and wonderful property with a barn, pond with fountain, a gazebo backed up to a small vineyard, and gorgeous trees...back dropped by the Blue Ridge Mountains. The home is charming, filled with antiques and tasteful decor. We spoke with Mike and Deb, and found they offered wedding packages. While set up to handle large weddings, they also were happy to offer a "just us" package, including a ceremony on the property or inside the Orchard House, as well as a night's lodging. They also offered options of several add-ons to personalize the event. This was perfect for us, and while they might have been alarmed that we asked to hold our event in less than 2 weeks, they never let on! They arranged for a wedding officiant...located a florist to decorate the Gazebo for a ceremony...found a baker to make a small wedding cake...and furnished a nice cheese/fruit/meat tray with champagne. They were attentive to all requests and were truly interested in helping to make our day special in every way. Everything was perfect, including a beautiful room. The next morning we were treated to a gourmet breakfast included in the stay...not sure we have ever had such an elegant and tasty breakfast in our travels...served in an airy and cheerful dining room with a great view. We also enjoyed being close to wineries, breweries, and all the many enticements of historic Charlottesville - you can't be bored! We stayed 2 nights and hated to leave...a great property with beautiful views and wonderful rooms, and wonderful hosts. Mike and Deb have found their true calling in life....you feel like welcome members of their extended family. Looking forward to another visit soon!
Beautiful b and b the rooms are large and the bathroom was too! Only complaint, we booked based on outstanding reviews of the innkeepers and we showed up and found out they were on vacation! Bummed.....because wanted Kathryn's awesome breakfast. Room was very warm too...unable to fix that. Other then that, great place to stay!
Staff was very welcoming, informative, generous and kind. Rooms and premises very clean and inviting. The breakfasts were wonderful and the personal attention by the Chef was a good added touch. Best Chocolate chip cookies ever. The complimentary wine and glasses are a very good idea. We hope to come back soon.
We were driving back home from Georgia to Pittsburgh and decided to stop at Mike and Deb Verplank's Orchard House Bed & Breakfast. Perfect pitstop but wished we could have stayed longer. The bed & breakfast has many LOVELY rooms. We stayed in the Northern Spy room. Right away when we arrived, we walked around the grounds past the pond with water fountain and the wedding barn where they've already booked a wedding. So cool. Loved seeing all of the holiday decor inside and out. Breakfast was so delicious with such beautiful tables set before we came down. It started with fruit and then the pumpkin muffin fresh from the oven and sausage biscuit and gravy. Breakfast held us over until we arrived back home in Pittsburgh. So good!! Looking forward to our next visit, hopefully, this Spring or Summer with friends so we can take advantage of the swimming pool. Also, so many wineries including Trump Winery close by. Thanks Mike and Deb for your gracious hospitality and a Penn State win over Wisconsin!
We were visiting the area for 2 nights to attend a Krishna Das concert at Yogaville (about a half hour drive from Orchard House). So happy we were able to book a room at Orchard House B&B, what a pretty setting. My husband and I stayed in the Empire Room, very comfortable and roomy. Deb & Michael are wonderful hosts, very friendly and informative about the area. The food was yummy...cookies in the evening and breakfast in the morning. Great location in Lovingston, VA. Michael knows lots to do off the beaten path, so we checked out some things we wouldn't have know about otherwise. We look forward to another visit some day.
Michael & Deb were pleasant and friendly. The Orchard House is beautiful and very comfortable. The attention to detail is impressive. The breakfast was outstanding. The room was comfortable and homey. This was our first B&B experience and my husband and I were very impressed. The Christmas decorations added to the stay and put me in a holiday mood. Well done and wishes for continued success.
A true mountain destination nestled deep in a valley with the Blue Ridge looming on all sides. The Inn at Sugar Hollow is a must stay for hiking enthusiasts. We also loved the fresh eggs and the adorable pygmy goats!
My husband and I stayed here and we'd highly recommend it. The owners were so friendly it felt like staying at an old friend's house. The breakfasts were delicious and the house was really nice. They seemed to genuinely be concerned that we be happy. I also really liked the location. It's right on 29 which is the road that takes you everywhere in the region. It's close to wineries and breweries, Charlottesville, the Walton Museum, and lots of other fun places. Believe me, you won't be bored there.
We had a wonderful stay at the Orchard House this weekend! The owners were very attentive, friendly and helpful! The breakfast was amazing both mornings! We felt comfortable and at home immediately upon arrival. This will be our getaway paradise!
This was a perfect place to meet family in Charlottesville. We had the 2 room suite (Room 20) so had a great living room to hang out with family, and then it converted into a pull out bed. Wonderful service and attention. Like coming home to people happy to see you. Wonderful cookies, and loved the wine and cheese evening treat.
