Wonderful stay in Fincastle!

5 on August 10, 2018

From the moment we arrived, my wife and I could not have felt more welcome. Stepping into the house feels like stepping into history. And, it was so quiet! The bed was comfortable and breakfast was home cooked and delicious. The location is perfect with its proximity to wineries and mountain views. Thank you Mitch and Bobbie and we hope to see you again.

Amazing Stay

5 on June 25, 2018

Bobbie and Mitch’s hospitality is second to none! My girlfriend and I decided to stay in Fincastle on our way down to Asheville. We are so thankful we did. Everything was spectacular from the wine and cheese upon arrival, all the way to the warm chocolate chip cookies Bobbie whipped up at our departure. We’ve stayed in several B & Bs and this was hands down our favorite. The room was authentic and comfortable, as was the town of Fincastle itself. Make sure to check out the local brewery nearby as well, the views were spectacular.

Innkeeper Response
What a wonderful group of compliments! We hope to see you again soon!

Wonderful B & B

5 on August 14, 2017

My first time staying at a B & B and it was wonderful. Came for my Son's wedding and the B & B was within walking distance which saved the hassle of parking and looking at hotels further away. The Victorian house is lovely, warm and very inviting with a lot of family history. My ground floor room was beautiful, with a huge king sized bed, overhead chandelier, fireplace and a very modern, large walk-in shower and lots of beautiful touches throughout. And the owners are just as friendly and warm as the house itself - lovely charming people who are genuinely interested in the well-being of their guests. To top off my stay, the following morning I had a delicious breakfast with home-made blueberry buckwheat pancakes and local maple syrup. A lovely way to end my visit. I highly recommend this B & B - you won't regret it!

Perfect!

5 on June 17, 2017

We just enjoyed the most amazing visit to Fincastle, VA. We stayed at the 25 E. Main Bed & Breakfast. Bobbie and Mitch are the most wonderful hosts that we have yet encountered! The home is an absolute master piece, our room was comfy and had every convenience that one could want, including a chilled bottle of water . We spent a delightful evening walking the lovely town and then sitting on the B&Bs back porch sipping wine with Bobbie and Mitch. Breakfast the next morning was served up with excellent coffee, pastry from the local bakery, fruit that was perfect, and the morning epic was their pancakes, cornmeal and blueberry, served with real maple syrup or locally raised honey. I have never eaten better pancakes in my life!

Innkeeper Response

A Beautiful B&B

5 on May 09, 2017

I’d highly recommend this B&B to anybody. The hosts, Bobby and Mitch are one of the warmest, most welcoming couples I’ve ever met. I was here on a Mother’s day trip with my mom, and we spent a lot of the time hiking on and around the Appalachian trail (beautiful scenery all around the area). Bobby and Mitch were so helpful with our trip, giving us tips on where to go and letting us borrow their cooler and lawn chairs for picnic lunches. The breakfasts were outstanding - a different dish every morning (which we chose) - and the house is a very cool place to stay. It is a historic home from the 1870’s, and the backyard is beautifully set up for hanging out or reading a book. I can’t recommend staying here highly enough.


Remarkable Bed and Breakfast!

5 on November 30, 2016

This is a remarkable bed and breakfast. If (and only if) you express an interest, the innkeepers will provide a wealth of information about the history of the home, its period furnishings, and Fincastle. Bobbie and Mitch are exceptional -- genuine in their caring and warmth. Expect gourmet in-room snacks and delicious made-to-order breakfasts. The bed and breakfast is beautiful, with unusually comfortable beds, individual climate control in the rooms, and recent bathroom additions including a walk-in-shower. Highly recommended with absolutely no complaints!

Well Worth Your Travel - Best B&B

5 on September 07, 2016

I stayed at 25 E Main for 2 nights in July, 2016. My daughter was getting married at a venue 2 houses away! The B&B was extremely comfortable (yes, it's air-conditioned for those high July temperatures!), beautiful, and the hosts were so very kind and hospitable. They make you feel so welcome and they go out of their way for anything you need .I would recommend this B&B even if I weren't in need of a sight directly in Fincastle - it's well worth the travel. Thank you Bobbie and Mitch! You have a wonderful business!

Innkeeper Response
It was certainly wonderful having you here. Thank you for taking the time to write. We hope to see you again very soon.

Quick Overnight Stay

5 on August 16, 2016

When I was looking for a place to stay after my nephews wedding I was looking for something that was well priced and convenient. I am so glad I found 25 E. Main B&B. We have a six month old baby and they were so accommodating!! The owners are the sweetest couple you will ever meet and the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. I am not exaggerating!! I would recommend this B&B to anyone that is looking for an outstanding accommodation in Fincastle!!

Innkeeper Response
We wish you had longer to stay. You are certainly a delightful family. Thank you for the kind comments.

Great Stay with Great People

So charming and romantic that you will swear that any moment Scarlett O'Hara will come bouncing down the circular staircase and Mitch and Bobbie are the perfect hosts. Ron Lisak, Gainesville, FL

With our success with vacation rental (Cottage on Craig, VRBO#335245), we realized we loved meeting our guests and seeing them year after year. We decided our ancestral home in the heart of Historic Fincastle, VA, would be perfect for a Bed and Breakfast.
