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.

My only regret...

5 on December 22, 2017 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!

Fantastic Romantic Getaway

We can’t wait to stay here again. Highly recommend. So many beautifully appointed, peaceful and luxurious rooms to choose from, very comfortable king bed, friendly and professional staff, fun and cozy places to hang out throughout and around the house, gourmet dinner option and complementary bottle of wine in the room. We were greeted with freshly baked cookies and enjoyed meeting the other guests at the nightly happy hour. Who could ask for anything more? Again, highly recommend.

Superb even in the rain

4.6 on September 02, 2017

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

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to seeing you next time.

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

5 on August 08, 2017

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 !

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.'
