Best B&B

4.0 on August 26, 2018

AMAZING is the only word that comes to mind when trying to describe The Farmhouse at Veritas and the complete experience. My husband and I have stayed at several B&B's throughout the states and Europe. Veritas is in a class of it's own. The property owners do not live in the actual farmhouse which made for a very comfortable stay. I didn't feel like I was invading a strangers home, which I have felt at other B&B's. 100% of the staff was super friendly and very, very welcoming. The decor is stunning, the food was simply FANTASTIC and did I forget to mention their Happy Hour, a complimentary bottle of wine with a pair of etched souvenir wine glasses and warm cookies! We had a lovely time relaxing while we strolled the vineyards and watched time pass away. Our sincere gratitude goes to the complete staff for making our stay at Veritas perfect in every way.

Beyond Perfect for a Romantic Getaway

5 on August 23, 2018

I wish we could have stayed forever. Everything about The Farmhouse at Veritas was absolutely exceptional, from the delicious food and wine to the friendly and accommodating staff to the beautiful and comfortable rooms to the gorgeous setting in the vineyards. I had very high expectations after reading a number of 5-star reviews and my husband and I were still blown away by how incredible The Farmhouse was—we started dreaming about our next trip before we even left. We could not more highly recommend!

Perfection!

The Farmhouse at Veritas is perfection! The whole place is lovely and the staff could not be more accommodating and friendly. Loved the views and the peace and quiet. My new happy place is having coffee on the Farmhouse porch and watching the sun rise and set. The food was to die for. We will definitely be back often since it is only 2 hours from DC.


Perfect Weekend Away

5 on June 20, 2018

My husband and I left our 3 kids with my mom and drove to the wine country to celebrate Father's Day. As it turned out, I had booked the wrong day! We arrived on a Saturday but our reservation was for Sunday. Di worked her magic and got us a room and our very own private breakfast. The home is beautiful and quiet and perfect for a romantic getaway. Highly recommend The Farmhouse at Veritas. We will be back!


Fantastic

Literally didn’t want to leave. We stayed the first weekend in May. Top notch food, service & scenery. It was everything we could’ve hoped for and then some. Plenty of wineries & breweries nearby inase you want to leave the farmhouse for a few hours during the day. Also, I strongly recommend booking horseback riding during your stay if you have the time. Needless to say we’ll be back.

A Day to Charish

5 on May 04, 2018

We stayed at the Farmhouse at Veritas the weekend of our daughters wedding. It was just to be a simple ceremony with the parents in attendance. When the planned wedding agenda had to be canceled that morning due to the weather, Dianna was gracious to allow the wedding ceremony to take place on the beautiful grounds of the Farmhouse at Veritas. I can't praise Dianne and the staff enough for their kindness and attentiveness in helping to give our daughter a wedding day she always dreamed of. I highly recommend the Farmhouse at Veritas for anyone who is looking for a relaxing get-way where the rooms are comfortable and attractive. Where one is surrounded by the beauty of the vineyards and landscape. Where one can be spoiled by the special treats and fine dining. And above all a wonderful staff that treats you more like family than a guest.

Superb!

We have stayed at the Farmhouse multiple times and will be back again. The service is impeccable and the house is super comfy and welcoming. The bedrooms are nice and roomy and the bedding is so soft you'll sleep like a baby. Be sure to sign up for one of the dinners. The food is ALWAYS fantastic.

So glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your review it is much appreciated.

My only regret...

5 on December 22, 2017

...is that we didn't stay longer. From the moment we arrived the hospitality was plentiful, authentic, and served in large doses. The reception in the gathering room before dinner was fabulous. Sparkling wine and tiny bits to gosh on. Our guests for dinner were also extremely impressed with the quality of the staff, the food, the dining area and the wine. The rooms were immaculate, bright and cheery. They were well decorated, and the entire farm house was covered in amazing Christmas decorations. It was as welcoming and warm as any place I've ever been. Stay an extra day, enjoy the countryside, the farm, and the food!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you kindly for your lovely words it really is appreciated.

Joel's Choice
Joel works with each guest to decide what best suits their appetite. He then takes his culinary expertise and wizardry in the kitchen to create anything from a simple soul-warming soup to a four-course meal paired with Veritas wines. So we say...the signature dish is what you desire, but ultimately 'Joel's Choice.'
