Herring Hall is a delightful place to stay! It’s close to Lexington and super convenient for family visits with students at W&L and VMI. The rooms are bright and extraordinarily clean. Our host is welcoming and ever accommodating. Can’t wait to go back!
Wow, we can’t say enough good things about this place. Cliff and Chris were very welcoming and wonderful host. We received a tour of the house and it is beautiful. They have taken great care in the remodeling and it shows. The furnishings and everything is done in time period including switches on the wall and the color of paint they use. We stayed in a room with a claw foot tub and a fireplace in the bathroom. There were plenty of extra plush towels and all the essentials. They have thought of every little thing including having a book to read right next to the bed. The small little touches show you how much they care about making sure you are comfortable. We played a couple rounds of pool in the billiards room after dinner. Breakfast was wonderful and they considered my husband’s low carb diet and make a delicious breakfast with a no crust quiche. We cannot wait to go back.
My husband and I celebrated our 3rd Wedding anniversary at http://www.herringhall.com this weekend. Our goal was to visit the Natural Bridge and a day trip of site seeing Historic Downtown Lexington, VA. Not only did we do that, but we found the most wonderful B&B that we will absolutely visit again. The history, hospitality, outstanding full course home made southern breakfast, beautiful historic accommodations that I can't say enough about (and a brewery five minutes away with a spectacular view). Anne Herring, the owner-inn keeper is a Rockbridge County Historian. She, as well as her father, and grandfather, grew up in this home. She and Brad made us feel like we were visiting family! Truly what a B&B is all about!

We came for two days celebrating my wife's birthday. I reserved a room in this beautiful home as a surprise for my wife. Everything was great and especially this surprise, as she grew up in a similar home and it was a very reminiscent of her childhood and youth. We greatly appreciate attention of Anne and her wonderful staff, great hospitality and comfort. We wish you the best of health and all the best in your future endeavors!
The house and property are just absolutely amazing ...and Ann is a gem! My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at Herring Hall on numerous occasions while our son attended Washington & Lee University...though he has recently graduated we look forward to sometime staying there again and discovering even more of Lexington and Natural Bridge.
We spent 2 nights at the Herring Hall. Despite a very later arrival, we were greeted with complimentary sangria and homemade pound cake (out of this world!).We stayed in the General room which is rather large and has a private bathroom. The bed there was a bit too firm for me, so make sure to ask ahead and book a different room if you prefer a softer mattress. The breakfast was delicious both mornings - freshly baked rolls and southern cuisine main dishes accompanied by fresh vegetables from the owners' garden and locally produced jams and jellies. Anne was very helpful with recommendations about local restaurants and places to visit. Great stay!
Beautiful, Historic Federalist Mansion, Excellent Service & Breakfast, Gracious Hostess and Staff, Beautiful and Serene Location............A great stay of 3 nights! Near Lexington, Lynchburg, and Natural Bridge State Park. New winery just opened a few miles away on a high hill with fantastic mountain views!
Anne was very accommodating and friendly. The entire place was very clean and the breakfast was delicious! Only recommendation is to balance the ceiling fan in the "blue" room. I plan to return soon!
The beauty and history of the "Seven Hills of Rockbridge County" is personified in Herring Hall. Built in 1812, you will find a warm and welcoming place to stay from Ms. Annie Herring, whose family home becomes yours during your stay. The hospitality and charm of this Inn make it a place you will want to go to. The service and price will make it the only place you will want to stay when you visit the county!
We enjoyed our visit to Natural Bridge, and would recommend Herring Hall. It was quiet, clean, comfortable, safe, beautiful, and interesting. The breakfast was wonderful, and we would love to stay there again in the future.
We used Herring Hall as a base for my daughter’s wedding. Anne Herring was so much fun as she welcomed us into her home. It is obvious that she loves entertaining and sharing her knowledge of the homes and history of the area. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Each was decorated with beauty and charm, reflecting the personality of the host. The inn offered plenty of room for the wedding party to primp and to socialize. We found many charming photo opportunities both inside and outside the inn. Breakfast in the mornings is a wonderful start to the day with fresh, local ingredients and tried and true family recipes. The always available Herring Hall pound cake is wonderful as a bedtime snack! Thank you, Anne, for such a wonderful experience.
We stayed one night May 22nd and had a delightful time. The owner, Anne Herring, was welcoming and pleasant, and she explained all the public room facilities (living/TV/Dining). Lots of family silver and crystal in the cabinets - the juice pitcher needed two hands! A very tasty breakfast was provided (somewhere on the web it says that you get a voucher for the Diner down the street? Not so.) If we had one criticism, it would be the lack of clothes hanging facilities. As we were told, they had no closets in 1820, when the house was built. Well, yes, but they did use wardrobes/free-standing closets. A hat rack was provided in the room with hooks for lots of hanging clothes, and the bathroom had a lot of hooks. Overall it was a delightful stay. Highly recommended. .
This was our second visit. If you enjoy visiting historic homes and other buildings you are going to love this. You can not only enjoy the ambience by looking at it, but also sitting in it and touching it!! (No Roped Off Areas!). Innkeeper Anne makes you feel welcome and comfortable. The meals are feature as much local foods as possible depending on the time of year, so freshness is guaranteed and the recipes range from "old family" to "let's try something new". All are mouthwatering and delicious. In addition to the meals, snack and drinks are always available. The Farmland settings and the morning "moos" are equally pleasant. You will not be disappointed during your visit.
Our second visit to this wonderful place. Anne is a great hostess and the breakfast are different each day. The breakfast would cost over $20.00 a person alone! If you could find the unique items available. The house has wonderful charm and the Anne takes great pride in giving you history of the house and the area. I can't think of a better place to stay if you are in the area. We will be back in the area in two years and hope to stay again and this wonderful B&B.
Innkeeper, Ann Herring has brought this old home to life with her perky collections and unexpected colors. Her attention to detail made our stay there a truly delightful experience. Rooms were immaculate, beds were comfy, and the breakfast was amazing. True southern comfort with amenities galore! Don't miss this gem! The home made pound cake alone would make the stay worthwhile!
We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Herring Hall! We were there for a horse show, and our expectations were exceeded by Anne's gracious hospitality. Breakfast on Sunday was incredible, especially the stewed tomatoes! We will be back!
