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.

Wedding Bliss!

My wife and I just had a PHENOMENAL wedding at the Farmhouse!! The staff were very gracious and accommodating. The food was amazing!! The accommodations were incredible and spacious. We booked the whole Farmhouse and the Cottage for our guests. I really can't say enough about the staff! The wedding ceremony was elegantly decorated and the reception in the gazebo was a dream come true!!! Truly a memorable experience that exceeded all our expectations. Highly recommend for any occasion or event. We will definitely be back!


A great place to relax and enjoy vineyard views!

Sip wine on the porch and look out at the surrounding vineyard. A great place to relax with wonderful food and wine!


OMG Veritas Is Beautiful and Delicious!

5 on July 08, 2016

We stayed in the second floor Cornwall room and it was very tastefully decorated and the bed looked lumpy but was absolutely heavenly to sleep on. So many gracious and lovely people at this location...Patricia, Andrew, Chloe (owner family) were all delightful to share a glass of wine or conversation with. Chef Andrew can whip up some tasty dinners and breakfasts and they were beautifully served. Haven't been to many B&Bs that also include a cocktail hour. Almost hate to share how wonderful this place is, it just might end up even busier than it already is and I'm not sure I want to share it with anyone. Could have stayed forever. What a great addition to the B&B venues!! This location is truly a family affair and the love shines through with each and every detail. Great Job Veritas. Oh...and did I mention the wine was the best in the district...Goild Medal the Cuvee and Claret. Yum!!


There is only one way to describe the Farmhouse at Veritas: top-notch.

5 on June 23, 2016

Whether it is the accommodations, wine, food, staff, it is a top-notch experience. My wife and I have been there numerous times and it has consistently been excellent. So much so that we were married right beside the Farmhouse under the large ash tree with our immediate family. The staff, including Diane, Leticia, Laura and Chef Andy and Chef Alex, made it an amazing day and had us feeling at home. Cannot recommend The Farmhouse enough.


Farmhouse Intimate Wedding and Stay

5 on May 30, 2016

My husband and I recently had a small, intimate wedding at the Farmhouse at Veritas. We had a two-night affair with our families and bridal parties, who were able to stay onsite between the main Farmhouse and the Barn Cottage. The experience was perfect. The Farmhouse is absolutely beautiful and the winery grounds are stunning! Each room of the Farmhouse has great character. We and our guests agreed that none of us had never stayed at a better B&B and had a more kind and accommodating staff during any stay. We all kept saying, “Everyone is so nice!” We truly felt like family while we were there. There is always access to coffee, which was a plus! The staff even had out delicious chocolate chip cookies for anytime snacking. The Veritas wine is great and the food served is out of this world. The Chef makes a sweet and savory option for main course for breakfast that changed each day-our guests loved the uniqueness and variety. We had the four-course Farmhouse dinner as our wedding meal and every course was amazing. I highly recommend staying at the Farmhouse or at an absolute minimum popping in for a Farmhouse dinner!


Can't wait to return to The Farmhouse at Veritas

5 on April 24, 2016

The Farmhouse at Veritas was recommended to us as an alternative to the Homestead or the Greenbrier as a small, tasteful B&B in a country setting. Our two days there were delightful. We loved the house, the setting, the pavilion that overlooks a vineyard, where we sat and read our books. The room was spacious with arm chairs, good lighting, great bedding. Gracious service and usual and tasty breakfasts. We recommend the four-course dinner paired with wines. We look forward to returning. We've recommended it to several friend,and one couple has booked a reservations.

Signature Dish

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.'
