It was a nice stay, I would have preferred a TV in the room but a nice room overall. The grounds were nice and the dog enjoyed them. The restaurant was good, but seemed to have issues at dinner without super advanced notice. We requested to eat there the day of our arrival and apparently the Chef couldn't handle less than a 12 hour notice.

Bring a good book to enjoy sitting under a tree or on the various patios. No TV is available but that made the stay even more enjoyable.

I had such a wonderful time at Meander. The owners were so nice and accommodating. It was really charming and relaxing. Comfortable beds and delicious food. I couldn't have asked for more. And the view is just lovely. Perfect rolling hills and green grass. Just heavenly.

I'm not even sure how I stumbled upon this place, but I am glad I did. I only had a short time to enjoy it, but this is one of the best bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed at. The breakfasts are the most important thing to mention. They are phenomenal, and the perfect way to start a day exploring wine country. The rooms are romantic and truly comfortable, but the grounds around the inn are so inviting I barely even had time to enjoy my room. They have amazing pastoral views with a mountain backdrop out the back door, and the setting makes you just sit back with a glass of wine for hours and start to enjoy nature and the simple things in life.

This was my 3rd visit to the inn, each one as excellent as can be. The rooms are well appointed, the breakfasts are great, and if you can take advantage of evening meals you will receive excellent value for a gourmet meal. Sitting in the back yard enjoying the view of the Blue Ridge is a definite "plus" and the friendly resident "pooch" will add to your enjoyable visit.
