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!

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!

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!

Innkeeper Response
We certainly enjoyed you being here and we hope to see you again soon. Thank you for your kind review!

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

Perfect!

5 on June 06, 2016

We highly recommend this B&B! The photos accurately reflect the warm and historic nature of this home and the surrounding small community. The house is very comfortable with a bedroom on the first floor for those who are not able to navigate stairs as well as a lovely room at the top of the suspended staircase. Mitch and Bobbie are perfect hosts - warm and gracious, available for conversation if desired, offering suggestions for local highlights, and able to provide some history of the area if interested! This home is very convenient to I-81. If we are in that area again, we know where we will stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind remarks. We certainly enjoyed your visit and hope you are in the area again.

Exquisite B&B!

5 on May 18, 2016

What a wonderful stay!!! I HIGHLY recommend this charming B & B!! It is smack dab in the middle of an adorable walking town. The owners, Mitch and Bobbie are so warm and welcoming. They treated us like cherished friends! The room was large, comfortable and lovely. The bathrooms are so clean and new! I loved the antiques and the beautiful garden in the back. Mitch and Bobbie are in the right business...they really know what it takes to make for a lovely, restful time away for their guests! I can't wait to relax on their rocking chairs on their back deck and watch the sunset again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Come back soon!

About the innkeepers

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.
