Superb even in the rain

This was our first visit to Veritas n it certainly lived up to all the praise we had heard from others. It's just plain, simple elegance. We were unable to eat outdoors among the. Vineyard but it was still extra special. Duane was gracious . Both chefs Emily n Andy mixed well with guests. Food was extra yummy. Thanks for introducing us to Veritas. We'll be back. And we plan on telling others too

Outstanding experience!

4.8 on August 28, 2017

We stayed for a night on the way to CT from NC and were absolutely thrilled with everything about the night and the following morning's activities. We were running late and Patricia herself called to make sure we were still on our way, gave us a suggestion where to stop for dinner on the way and made arrangements to leave the key for us. All before we were going to call them. The room was amazing. In fact the entire farmhouse is quite a treat. It's a lovely place with old world feel but all the accommodations you expect of a top-tier hotel. The bottle of wine and truffles were well appreciated even at 930PM :-) Despite being a B&B, the rooms were very quiet and we were able to sleep a bit later than normal. Breakfast was at 9 in the outdoor pavilion they have for it. Two other couples were also there and we all enjoyed a wonderful breakfast - better than any we've had at either B&Bs or hotels. The chef is extremely capable and offered choices of savory or sweet breakfasts. We had the waffles with creme' fraiche, peaches and fruit reduction with our orange juice and sparkling wine. The croissants were incredibly light and flaky and the mocha butter an inspired departure from the norm. Our only disappointment was that we were not going to be able to be there for dinner. The vineyard and grounds are stunning and peaceful and we wandered the gardens (the chef grows his own herbs), played with a cat wandering through and enjoyed the ambiance and peaceful location before we hit the road again, re-energized for the remainder of our trip. This is definitely a place where we'll stay again when we're in the area, and next time for more than one night. Absolutely one of the best nights we've ever spent traveling!

An amazing B&B and wonderful experience

I want to commend Di and the staff at The Farmhouse B&B at Veritas Winery. We gave our son and his girlfriend a two night stay for a gift. They could not say enough about how wonderful their weekend was. I also want to say that the staff planned ahead to ensure that their stay was special.......including helping to arrange winery tour, preparing a picnic lunch and making sure their stay was perfect. thank you so much for making their stay so special ! We would highly recommend this B&B. It is a MUST to try !

Our two-day stay was absolutely outstanding in every detail. We were treated as most revered family members. Every possible detail was emphasized to make our visit a pleasure to be remembered. We must plan to visit again.

Superb & Magical

Second stay because it is simply the best! I keep returning because of the spectacular bucolic nature-filled surroundings. Indoors and out, from the cuisine to the decor, all perfectly orchestrated. You will be grateful for the experience as soon as you turn into the drive!


A great place to be pampered.

We came for our anniversary and spent 3 nights. We have been here before but never in the summer. The staff is always very accommodating and friendly and you can tell they love to work there. The setting in the vineyard is lovely and very peaceful. We had the dinner once, and though it was a little pricey, it was delicious and paired with wines. We've stayed at a few B&Bs, but this one has the best breakfast with a choice of savory or sweet, and always different. I would recommend it highly.


Beautiful

A grand surprise

5 on May 10, 2017

I have had two glowing recommendations for the Farmhouse. However, I am upping the 5 to a 10: excellent in every way. The ambiance, the staff , the food, the wine ,the accommodations, and the naturally beautiful setting provided a memorable experience. Thank you.


Weekend with friends
