Weekend Stay at Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on March 07, 2018

Over the Valentine's Day holiday, we enjoyed a special 3-day-2-night get-away at Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast. We had a wonderful experience: outstanding accommodations, great conversation with guest and owners, delicious breakfast and fabulous appetizers and wine were included with our package, along with complimentary winery tours. If you are planning a romantic weekend w/ your special sweetheart, we highly recommend you check out this venue. If you are planning a intimate or large wedding or event, Chestnut Hill is a must do!

Great relaxing stay....

My wife and I stayed with Kathleen over New Year's Eve. The B&B had a lot of character. The room was very nice and spotless. Breakfast was original and luxurious and different every morning. We thoroughly enjoyed the family style atmosphere and great conversations with other guests. Before our stay we got perfect assistance to arrange New Year's Eve activities in the area. We also enjoyed the winery arrangement, In short a perfect and relaxing stay. Exactly what we were looking for and more...

Exactly what a Bed and Breakfast should be

5 on May 30, 2017

Kathleen and Troy were the ultimate hosts. I wish we could have stayed longer. This was a lovely place to stay on the way to Monticello. And the picnic that they packed for us was fantastic! Both the inn and the hosts are a Virginia treasure.

Awesome stay

I visited Chestnut Hill for my daughter's wedding venue this past weekend. The home and grounds are beautiful and well kept. The staff were amazing and ready to help us with our every need. Plus, they helped us with another one of our daughter's wedding in the past. They make you feel just like you are part of their family. Thanks for all that you have done for us!!!!!

Outstanding Hospitality!

5 on March 13, 2017

Chestnut Hill B&B was the perfect get-away to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday! Kathleen & Troy are wonderful people and innkeepers, ensuring every aspect of our stay was as special as a 60th birthday should be! We highly recommend Chestnut Hill B&B!

Amazing as always

5 on March 06, 2017

We stayed in the bridal suite, which is beautiful. The atmosphere of Chestnut Hill is relaxing, Troy and Kathleen are gracious hosts, and the breakfasts (and afternoon appetizers) were wonderful. We try to get to this Bed and Breakfast at least once a year - no other Bed and Breakfast compares to this one!

A Must Stay

5 on February 17, 2017

Kathleen & Troy treat guests like family!!! The house and grounds are unique and beautiful. We were married there 6 years ago and keep coming back year after year because its so peaceful and such a stress relieving environment. Troy is an excellent Chef and the breakfast is out of this world. Kathleen is a wonderful host and very funny too! They will exceed your expectations!!!

Amazing B&B!!!

5 on February 03, 2017

I had an amazing stay at Chestnut Hill B&B! We stayed in the Alexander Daley's Master Suite and as you can see from the pictures it was beautifully decorated and really felt like home. When we arrived Kathy gave us a tour and then took us right up to our room. She even let us see the Bridal Suite just in case we wanted to switch for the night. We got the Romance package and everything went exactly according to plan! The massages were great, she set up dinner for us at one of the restaurants she recommended (which was absolutely amazing), they even had special treats from the chef for us to try, and then brought us breakfast to the room in the morning! My boyfriend was celebrating his birthday and each part of the package was supposed to feel like a surprise and with Kathy's help I was definitely able to make his birthday special.

Perfect gem

5 on January 19, 2017

What a perfect gem! The renovation produced a perfect blend of retaining period architecture while introducing modern conveniences. The hosts are lovely and accommodating while remaining unobtrusive. Breakfast was excellent and were tips of where to get dinner. The location is ideal for a visit to Barboursville and Horton wineries. Plan to return to enjoy again.

New Years Getaway

5 on January 17, 2017

We decided on a last minute New Years getaway to Chestnut Hill B&B. Kathleen welcomed us with open arms and was extremely accommodating given the short notice they had We were given wine tasting tickets and excellent dinner options. They have a family style feel with wine and snacks available all day. Breakfast was delicious and the charming and historic home did not disappoint. We will definitely be returning!

Weekend getaway

5 on July 06, 2016

Chestnut Hill is a beautifully restored historic building. The owners were extremely nice and helpful so that we could enjoy our little weekend getaway. They had great suggestions for wineries and restaurants in the area. The room was charming and the breakfasts at the B & B were delicious! We can't wait to go back!

A great experience!!

5 on May 19, 2016

We just spent 2 nights at Chestnut Hill as a gift from our daughter and her family. What a treat !! The Inn is absolutely beautiful....clean beyond belief and appointed so tastefully. Kathleen and Troy are exceptional hosts, ,meeting every need and lots of perks (tickets to Montpelier and wineries). The evening happy hour treats were so nice after a day of sightseeing and their dinner recommendations were outstanding. The other guests we met were so interesting as well. We will certainly return again !!!! John and Nancy Ross, Timonium.MD

Romantic getaway without kids;)

5 on April 09, 2016

Perfection in every way! This was my first experience in a bed and breakfast, and the hosts at this establishment have converted me to B&B's for all my traveling. The ambience was relaxed yet refined. Breakfast was fabulous, and the town of Orange is simply magical!

Another wonderful Valentines Day!

5 on March 01, 2016

My wife and I spent Valentines Day 2015 at Chestnut Hill, and loved it so much, we went back for 2016. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the food is delicious! The place is very tastefully decorated and extremely clean. We already plan to be back for 2017. Thank you for a romantic weekend!

Well worth the second visit!

5 on February 21, 2016

This was our second time staying at Chestnut Hill. Troy, Kathleen and the entire staff are extremely friendly and outgoing. The food is great, the rooms are very clean and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay wonderful. We plan to be back next Valentines Day!

My husband and I wanted to take a few days and relax before we become parents. Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place for that! It was so beautiful and relaxing. Kathleen and Troy were amazing! They made sure we we're comfortable the whole time. They both took the time to get to know us. We did not feel like passerbyers. We felt like part of the family. A really classy family. They provided us with many ideas for things to do on our little relaxing trip. They know how to run this elegant establishment. It was really hard for us to leave because we were so comfortable there. Thank you Kathleen and Troy for making this really remember able for us! Ron and Jill.

Best weekend wedding

5 on February 03, 2016

My husband and I had our wedding here. Chestnut hill took care of EVERYTHING! Flowers, food, music, ceremony, cake, champagne. All of the things you expect in a full size wedding we had in our weekend getaway with 25 of our closest friends. The rooms are like a dream getaway. Kathleen and Troy really know how to take care of their guests.

Outstanding B&B in Orange, VA

5 on January 15, 2016

We enjoyed a wonderful night in December at Chestnut Hill B&B to celebrate our anniversary. The room was beautiful, the breakfast delicious and plentiful, and the hosts were wonderful and friendly. . Stay Mon-Wed and enjoy free wine, beer and soft drinks. We have stayed in several B&Bs in Virginia and elsewhere and this is the best of the bunch!! You will not be disappointed.

best bed in virginia hands down

5 on December 14, 2015

The inn keepers are wonderful they give you a feelings of being at home that I've never expirenced before. They have a beautiful house and great recommendations. It's defiantly worth every cent spent at this bed and breakfast.

Wedding event

4.4 on November 20, 2015

A Lovely Stay

3.6 on November 06, 2015

This is a beautifully restored Inn built in the 1860 with comfort at its best and a great location as well. Our stay was delightful. Troy & Kathleen Ayers are just fantastic hosts making you feel welcome. The rooms are lovely and there is an open wine and beverage bar downstairs. Each day a creative hors d'oeuvre is prepared and served. The breakfast is fantastic and beautifully served as well. There are fresh baked cookies each day to enjoy. Stay here when you get the chance and you will be so happy you did.

Fabulous Stay at Chestnut Hill!

5 on October 31, 2015

Just had the pleasure of staying at one of the best B&Bs in the Country; Chestnut Hill. Kathleen and Troy were great hosts and made us feel right at home. We purchased the Wine tour package and spent the day visiting 4 great wineries and being chauffeured around in a stretch limo. Troy and Kathleen gave us the history of the property and lots great advice on which wineries to visit and where to eat dinner in the area. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable and our room had 2 gas fireplaces and a large 2 person jacuzzi tub. We had a great nights sleep and awoke to the wonderful smell of breakfast and fresh coffee. We joined 4 other couples in the dining room for a delicious and well prepared gourmet breakfast that truly was a treat and left us all stuffed. The staff is very attentive and always available to ensure you enjoy your stay. When it was time to go, Troy and Kathleen met us on the back porch and we chatted for awhile and felt as if we were old friends, We really hated to get in the car and leave. Chestnut Hill is quite a treasure and you will not find better hosts than Troy and Kathleen. Highly recommended and we can't wait to visit again.

My small but perfect wedding!

5 on October 28, 2015

We were treated as if we were having a wedding with 200 guests. It was perfect We loved the honeymoon suite as well. Sheets were to die for. Food was excellent. Kathleen, we hope to see you again. Sincerely, Michele and William Crummett

One of the best!

5 on October 21, 2015

We absolutely loved Chestnut Hill. We stayed in the Alexander Daley suite and it was perfect! Kathleen and Troy are excellent hosts and the breakfasts are fabulous. We had a wonderful time and if we return to the area, we'll be sure to return to the inn. Stay there - you'll be glad you did!

Luxury for a great price

5 on October 17, 2015

Chestnut Hill is like a mini all-inclusive resort experience. Wonderful cookies and a great hours d'oeuvre on check in, easy access to great local wines, beer, sodas and coffee or tea, clean and excellently decorated rooms with the softest bed I've ever slept in, and an outstanding breakfast in a refined setting. Stay here; you'll be glad you did.

Wonderful anniversary getaway

5 on September 25, 2015

My husband and I had our honeymoon at Chestnut Hill, so is was great to come back and receive the same top notch service that we previously had before. Kathleen called ahead to see if we needed reservations for dinner and recommend several local places to eat, and they also recommended several local wineries to go to once we arrived. The room we had previously stay in was already booked, but when we arrived, we found out that the person had cancelled and Kathleen had already moved us over to that room. We love how the owners make an effort to remember folks. It really makes a difference, and we will certainly be back!

Exemplary service/hospitality

4.4 on September 22, 2015

Kathryn and Troy do a terrific job in accommodating their guests!

4th Visit & Still a Winner!

5 on March 25, 2015

We've stayed with Troy & Kathleen 4 times now and each visit has been a pleasure! Nice rooms, warm hospitality and excellent food make Chestnut Hill a B&B we will keep coming back to and recommend to our friends.

Expectations exceeded!

5 on March 06, 2015

We stay at BnB's frequently and the Chestnut Hill Inn was by far the best. Every aspect was AAA+, from the warmth of the proprietors to the food to the atmosphere to the accommodations. B. Gleason

Wake to Chestnut Hill

5 on January 22, 2015

Chestnut Hill far exceeded my expectations. Kathleen, Troy, Leona et al were beyond fantastic. Breakfast was "Robin Leech" (of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous") worthy. The B&B is centrally located 30 minutes from Monticello and 10 minutes from Montpelier. Vineyards abound short driving distances away. Local restaurants are hidden gems and Troy and Kathleen were knowledgeable about them all. One day you wake up and realize value in accommodations, services and, in this case, location, are more important then the "deal of the day". If you value these things then you owe it to yourself to "wake up at Chestnut Hill". We will be back!

The ultimate getaway...

5 on December 10, 2014

We've always thought you have to go far away to experience sublime luxury. We never thought there is such luxury, hospitality and so much to experience, a mere hour outside of the Washington, DC area.

Happy Birthday Getaway

5 on November 17, 2014

Outstanding evening all the way around. Hospitality upon arrival was warm and inviting. The innkeeper went above and beyond to meet our requests. The other guests were personable. The value was exceptional.

Columbus Day Getaway

4.8 on October 20, 2014

My wife and I decided to get away for our anniversary a little early this year in the hope of seeing some fall color. We chose Chestnut Hill after looking at several other B&Bs. So the weather didn't cooperate as it rained the entire time, but the stay at Chestnut Hill was great. Kathleen and Troy were very pleasant and accommodating helping us make the most of our celebration. And did I mention the breakfasts were delicious?

Beautiful B&B

4.0 on October 20, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Chestnut Hill for one night on October 13, 2014. The home is beautiful with much attention to detail. Beautifully decorated and very well kept. Kathleen and Troy were very gracious hosts! We stayed in "Ask Anna" and it was a stunning room, especially the whirlpool tub. Breakfast in the morning was outstanding, and the snacks in the evening were a very nice touch. While we were there, a small wedding ceremony took place in the back yard. Very nice venue for a small wedding. The rate is expensive, but it's a lovely place to stay for a special occasion.

Best ever!

5 on October 04, 2014

Owners "very" friendly...Made us feel at home!! By far the best B&B we have ever visited!! The breakfast was fantastic!! Want to visit again!

Dream come True

5 on August 13, 2014

My husband and I got married at the Inn on August 2, 2014 and rented the entire B&B for the weekend. We knew when we rented that the establishment was beautiful, but actually having the Chestnut experience created the most romantic wedding weekend ever! Our family who occupied the rooms were stunned by the beauty, amenities, the service, the food, and just the small personal touches that you would find in a 5 star diamond hotel. When I returned to work, people who weren't invited were coming up asking for pictures because those that went bragged that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. Troy and Kathleen were awesome and went out of their way to make our stay and our wedding exactly how we wanted and were so accommodating of our crazy wedding schedules. Troy was awesome at throwing compliments that made me feel like a was the best bride ever and Kathleen kept me so calm! My husband and I are planning another getaway there soon and it had only been a week! Don't think, just do it! It is worth every penny!

Five Stars in Every Category!

5 on August 11, 2014

Chestnut Hill is both beautiful and friendly! We hope to return many times--if we can get reservations--it's almost always booked up. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants comfort in an elegant home with plenty of relaxing spaces: the back porch, the huge downstairs den, the formal living room, the second floor lounge. Chestnut Hill also deserves its reputation for outstanding multi-course breakfasts. It's a superb B&B and a great getaway.

This Place is the Best

5 on July 28, 2014

My now husband and I stumbled upon this delightful bed and breakfast on accident when searching for a place to elope. First off, the building itself, as well as the surrounding property, is stunning inside and out. It has been completely renovated and was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. The innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen are the most friendly people that you will ever encounter. They treated us like VIPs the entire time. As far as the ceremony goes, all we had to do was get a license and show up. They took care of absolutely everything else. Breakfast and an evening appetizer is included in the stay. Even though Kathleen assured me that neither she nor Troy went to culinary school, you would think differently. They made the most delicious food from the best ingredients. We never needed to eat lunch because breakfast was so amazing and filling. We cannot wait to come back to Chestnut Hill for our first anniversary. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a fun and fancy yet relaxing place to stay or site for your wedding. It's really the best. ~Megan and Jason


5 on July 08, 2014

My wife and I would absolutely stay here again. This is a beautiful inn in a lovely area. The staff go the extra mile, as evident in every aspect of the impeccable service, food, and amenities. Also, the staff have intimate knowledge of the region, and answer any questions you may have to ensure you get the most out of the local attractions. This was a very relaxing, enjoyable stay.

Our Anniversary Trip

5 on May 11, 2014

Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast is the best place to visit for a little relaxation! Troy and Kathleen made our stay perfect in every way. The atmosphere and warm greeting was outstanding. Our room was comfortable and so charming.

My Eldest Son's Wedding Event

5 on April 21, 2014

What a truly delightful weekend! Everything about this B&B is elegant in a very, very quaint, relaxing and simplified way. The rooms, the decor, the landscaping, the meals,... All of it combined to make unforgettable memories I shall cherish forever! I'm so delighted my son and daughter-in-law chose this beautiful and elegant B&B setting for their wedding celebration! I can't wait to tell everyone I know about my weekend at Chestnut Hill and I am already planning to return.

Perfect retreat

5 on April 09, 2014

This was my first time going alone to a B&B for a mini "retreat." The Chestnut Hill B&B proved to be the perfect place. Kathleen and Troy are gracious hosts who make you feel comfortable and at home. Troy's delicious lobster bisque was an outstanding way to begin my stay. The breakfast was delightful, and the room was lovely and very spacious. Kathleen even delivered wine, the bisque and the next morning, the breakfast to my room so I could enjoy some much needed quiet alone time. I can't say enough about my wonderful stay here. I hope to be back soon!

Wonderful Stay

4.6 on March 16, 2014

We had a lovely stay at Chestnut Hill this past week! We stayed in Ask Anna and were thrilled with the spacious, luxurious, and comfy room! The only thing that could have made the room better is if the heat had been turned up just a tad, but with this crazy weather it's hard to know what temperature to set things at. The food was excellent, the staff helpful and pleasant, and Kathleen and Troy were great at meeting are requests and activities! Thank you to everyone at Chestnut Hill for making our stay perfect!


5 on January 30, 2014

Once again, the stay at Chesnut Hill was fabulous. The staff is wonderful. They are courteous, professional and extremely attentive to the wants of their guests. The breakfast and happy hours are fantastic. The morning breakfast with the roasted pineapple with pistachios and raspberry chocolate sauce was superb. The rooms are comfortable and allow you to escape. It's the ultimate Bed and Breakfast. And dinner and everything else. The grounds are beautifully manicured. We will definitely come back for years and years.

Best in Virginia

5 on January 25, 2014

This was our sixth stay with Troy and Kathleen and it has become like a second home.The hospitality is unmatched and the inn is beautiful. If you want to get away and relax, Chestnut Hill is the place to go.

Best B&B Ever!!

5 on January 16, 2014

The home is set up on top of a steep hill. Kathleen & Troy are welcoming hosts who greeted us with hor d'oeuvres as soon as we checked in. We enjoyed a big screen tv in the sitting room. We have never been so pampered before. they emailed us ahead of time and suggested recommendations of things to do and where to eat. We have been in B&B's all over the state and this is THE best one we have ever been to. We plan on visiting again :)

Wonderful winter escape

5 on January 05, 2014

We spent New Years Eve at Chestnut Hill. It was perfect. The hosts helped us secure reservations at excellent restaurants during our stay. Our days were spent visiting area wineries and art galleries. Breakfasts were a real treat as were the evening wine tastings. Troy is an exceptional cook who works hard to personalize the food to each guest. Kathleen is warm and friendly and makes you feel that you are a guest at her personal home. These caring hosts along with the beautiful house make Chestnut Hill a wonderful escape any time of the year.

Wonderful B&B with accomodating hosts!

4.6 on December 30, 2013

We stayed here last week and had a wonderful experience. The hosts were so sweet and helpful, making sure we felt at home. Our room (Alexander Daley) was very clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the house. I would definitely return.

Blown Away - Our First Time at a B&B

5 on December 29, 2013

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast. We were totally blown away by the experience! Wonderful home, outstanding hosts and service. We loved it completely and will definitely recommend the inn to everyone.


5 on December 28, 2013

Everything was perfect down to every detail--from the attention-to-detail rooms, to the evening appetizer which were delicious, the scrumptious cookies before bed, and the gourmet breakfast in the morning.....everything was perfection! Would highly recommend if you want to be pampered in beautiful surroundings. Can't wait to go back!

The Twins Stay at Chestnut Hill!

5 on December 27, 2013

This was the best experience we have had in a long, long time. We have never been to a bed & breakfast. The bar has been set so high we cannot imagine it higher. From the first contact to the last farewell, Kathleen & Troy are both such warm and welcoming people. It has been a pleasure beyond description. Thanks to them for their warmth and generous hospitality. They made us feel so welcomed. Delicious food and lovely accommodations! Pati-Pam.. The Twins

The Very Best...wonderful B&B

5 on November 15, 2013

A truly wonderful experience and accommodations. Kathleen and Troy really go the extra step in making your stay just perfect. It is really all about your hosts... Highly recommended.

Parent's Weekend

5 on October 30, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for Woodberry Forest's Parents Weekend. The room was spacious and beautiful and the breakfast was delicious.

Great stay

4.2 on October 29, 2013

We booked our room on relatively short notice and were able to get in. The rooms were clean, large and well-appointed, and breakfast was excellent both mornings. Plenty of nice features, including a comfortable and well-stocked downstairs lounge/bar area to relax and hang out with some of the other guests. Outside, the garden area is well-kept and nicely laid out. The hosts were quite friendly and very willing to help us plan our daily activities. The place is easy to find, even if you're not familiar with the area. Overall, we would have no problem recommending Chestnut Hill to friends, and enjoyed our stay enough to visit again.

10 year anniversery weekend was a blast

4.8 on October 28, 2013

Did the romance package, and couples massage. Was very nice. Location was great for a short weekend stay. Food was great, unfortunately it rained so we could not do horseback riding but hit some wineries in the area and they were great as well. Make sure you get the fried chicken in Charlottesville near Montecello at Micchi Tavern. Did a lot of neat antique shopping and browsing and there is a really cool thrift shop down the road. Great view and gardens. Excellent host. Downstairs bar and happy hour with other young couples was a blast. Did the live music and steak at a locale restaurant in town. Would definitely go back

Not a single bad thing to say about Chestnut Hill!

5 on October 17, 2013

This was me and my husband's first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast so we didn't really know what to expect (we even googled proper B&B etiquette beforehand!). Boy were we pleasantly surprised!! When we first arrived, we were greeted by the friendly innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen. The house is extremely inviting and cozy - their attention to detail can be seen in every single room. While Kathleen gave us a tour and showed us our room, Troy prepared an appetizer to be enjoyed in the lower level bar area, what a lovely surprise! His cooking is amazing! During our stay, we had unlimited access to wine, beer, soft drinks and water - another great surprise we didn't know upon booking. We stayed in the "Ask Anna" room on the lower level and it was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We had a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom and a large glass door shower. Breakfast every morning was delicious, we loved everything about it! Troy helped us plan our activities one day, we really recommend letting them help you since they know so much about the area. We visited some great vineyards, one of them was Honah Lee not far from Chestnut Hill. If it wasn't for Troy and Kathleen, we wouldn't have visited this little gem. Kathleen also helped make dinner reservations, and thanks to her recommendations we had a delicious meal at a nice little restaurant in town. We only have great things to say about Chestnut Hill B&B and its owners, and we cannot wait to come back for our next visit!

Truly Outstanding

5 on October 15, 2013

Exceptional service in every regard.

Exquisite Cuisine & Rest

5 on October 14, 2013

We truly enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Hill. We arrived a little late and Kathleen and Troy were able to get a reservation for dinner quickly. Breakfast here was so amazing, simply delicious. We stayed in the Alexander Daley suite. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I felt very rested. We would highly recommend a stay here!

Highest Praise

5 on October 02, 2013

This is our first time giving a review and they have earned the highest praise we can offer. They are so personable! The inn is exquisite, the furnishings, food, & the family atmosphere, we would highly recommend an extended stay here. So much help was given to us to see the surrounding sites.

View Orange, Virginia from Chestnut Hill!

5 on September 30, 2013

We just returned from a too short, one night stay at Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast. The hosts, Troy and Kathleen Ayres were gracious and helpful, the phenomenal appetizers and breakfast were presented in gourmet style, the room was comfortable (amazing bedding!), and the setting was lovely. They even provided a pet friendly room for our little Maltese. We highly recommend it.

Delightful B & B

4.4 on September 28, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your B&B - rooms were beautiful - beds sumptious. Breakfasts were great - service was outstanding - owners very helpful with dining reservations at local restaurants.

Our experience in a magical bb.

5 on September 04, 2013

Earl, a/k/a, Tim Fuller and myself, Dean, were taken aback by the beauty and opulence of Chestnut Hill. We saw reviews and pictures on internet but were so impressed with everything when we arrived. The decor and original decorating ideas of the period of the home were impressive and very inspirational of what to do with a house to define exception and bold ideas. Our room suggested feelings of welcome, you have arrived. The breakfasts were in keeping with the theme of the house, yes, you are special and enjoy. We enjoyed all the guests, especially at happy hour. The dinner reservations that Kathleen made for us were exceptional. We felt as though we were dining in Europe. We are definitely going back. We know we need to reserve our stay many months in advance. To sum up our experience: What a wonderful and incredible memory we have of Chestnut Hill. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind get-away this is it!!!!! Tim and Dean Fuller

Outstanding Service

5 on August 23, 2013

The room and the service was outstanding. Food was the best, and the hosts could not do enough for us.

Relaxing & Enjoyable

5 on August 21, 2013

The owners of Chestnut Hill did an amazing job during our daughter's wedding. They were on top of every detail to make sure the event went smoothly. When there was a pouring rain storm 30 minutes before the wedding, Troy was out with an umbrella taking care of our guests. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, it was relaxing and enjoyable.

Cozy & Comfortable

5 on August 21, 2013

Chestnut Hill is so cozy and comfortable! The beds are amazing, the cat is friendly, the grounds are beautiful, and the food is some of the best I've ever had. And the coffee available at all hours is pretty wonderful. Kathleen and Troy are so friendly and welcoming. I definitely hope to come again.

Wonderful Weekend

5 on August 05, 2013

My Wife and I had a delightful weekend a couple of weeks back. Kathleen and Troy were model hosts and ensured that we had a great time. One of the things we liked about Chestnut Hill was the attention to detail. Breakfasts were to die for and we loved the King bed with beautifully soft sheets. Of particular interest also was the story of Chestnut Hill, how Troy had purchased the property for a song and the 6 years of loving restoration. We live in Australia and travel world wide and can certainly say without doubt that this was the best B&B experience that we have had. We hope to return soon.

We would go back.

4.8 on July 25, 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect and what we received was top of the line. The caretakers of the inn are friendly and easy to speak with. The house itself is simply beautiful, well taken care of and nicely updated with modern conveniences. The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Our room was cosy and nice all around. The attached bath bathroom was something I was glad we had. The bed was comfortable and nice to wake up in. I would really recommend this place for a romantic getaway or simply a change of pace from the day to day. Orange is a neat little town.


5 on July 22, 2013

Had read about Chestnut Hill's evolution in an article in "The Virginian Pilot" and wanted to visit. Coincidentally, at a wine tasting party, we met a couple who had just recently stayed there for their anniversary and were incredibly enthused about Chestnut Hill, and we soon learned why. Kathleen and Troy, the Innkeepers, and their staff are incredible...helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to suggest wineries to visit, places to see, and help with dinner reservations. After we made our reservations, Kathleen called to determine whether we had any dietary restrictions so that any afternoon appetizers that she provides or breakfast in the morning would accommodate them. Because we had purchased some wine the previous day and planned to spend some time at Montpelier, we called and asked if we could store the wine before we checked in to prevent damage from the July heat. Our request was honored without hesitation. The town of Orange has some great restaurants and we enjoyed the Elmwood Grill upon Kathleen's recommendation. The innkeepers live on the premises, so that any issues or questions can be answered virtually 24/7. We will return.

A magical getaway

5 on July 17, 2013

What a sweet home... and that's what it feels like, being a guest at a friend's place. All staff and fellow guests, even the dog & cat roaming around, were nice and friendly. We ate breakfast together, and it was almost too pretty to eat, and delicious. They are very accommodating with any dietary preferences. The room was gorgeous and the cleaning staff did an amazing job. Even straightened up the items thrown around in the bathroom. They gave us a complimentary upgrade to VIP, which allowed us free reign at the bar. Lots of wine that weekend! And the surrounding area is cheerful country. We enjoyed the horse back riding and wine tastings. Extra treat if you go during a bull riding event in town. Thank you Chestnut Hill, for an unforgettable weekend!


5 on July 16, 2013

This has been a wonderful few days for us – thank you Kathleen & Troy! Your hospitality along with the fine staff could not have been better. The house is spectacular and the food was as good as it gets! We look forward to coming back to visit again. Thank you!

More Than We Dreamed Of

5 on July 16, 2013

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was absolutely incredible. The staff and innkeepers were very helpful and made our honeymoon an experience we will cherish!

Fabulous Bed & Breakfast

5 on July 16, 2013

Cozy, excellent service, and softest sheets ever! We were spoiled! The food was fabulous too. We enjoyed all the recommendations of restaurants, hiking trails, and outdoor activities. We will return!

Extraordinary Experience

5 on July 09, 2013

This was the first time we've stayed at a B&B in this area. Troy and Kathleen have set the bar so high it will hard to stay in another B&B because they will pale in comparison. Our bedroom was gorgeous and the bed itself was a dream to sleep in. Breakfast was a gourmet delight each morning. We cannot wait to recommend Chestnut Hill to all of our friends. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend retreat.


5 on June 27, 2013

Once you stay here, you won't want to stay at any other Bed and Breakfast!!!! Beautiful and wonderful innkeepers.

Rebecca's birthday get-away

4.2 on June 26, 2013

This is one of the nicest B&B's we stayed at. The rooms are well done, evening appetizers wonderful and wine choices excellent. The grounds are truly beautiful. We expected to pay a bit more for such a fine establishment.

Amazing Stay!

5 on June 24, 2013

With the help of Kathleen, my husband surprised me for our ten year anniversary with a stay at this amazing bed & breakfast. We renewed our vows by the fountain and Kathleen even made me a bouquet out of her garden. We stayed in the bridal suite and had an amazing weekend! We will definitely be back! The staff here is amazing and takes care of you and they take special attention to each of their guests. Kathleen’s customer service and extra attention to detail truly sets this place apart. The food was amazing and the beds were the most comfortable we’ve ever slept in. Thank you for an unforgettable anniversary. Much Love, Warren and Sarah Fane

Enjoyable Experience.......

A very classy and beautiful bed and breakfast. Everyone was very nice, and we had a wonderful stay. We will be going back again!

Fabulous getaway.

5 on May 23, 2013

Hospitality is unrivaled. The Ayers went the distance to ensure we had an enjoyable visit to the area.

Can't praise them enough!

5 on May 22, 2013

My husband and I got married here and our family stayed in all the rooms. Kathleen and Troy really are the best. I will never be able to go to another B&B without comparing it to them. Luxury doesn't describle this B&B. The property and house are beautiful and well maintaned. All their staff was so helpful and sweet. The breakfast is unbelieveably good. Everyone in our party had a great time and want to go back asap. There really are no words to describe how wonderful they are!

We only stayed one night, but felt so refreshed after leaving, we were so pampered and everything was just wonderful!

5 on May 21, 2013

We checked in and were given guest passes to 3 wineries. We enjoyed the drive and view as well as the wineries. Went back to Chestnut Hill where they had prepared a wonderful appetizer. We then dressed and went to Willow Grove for a nice dinner. The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast, we also enjoyed meeting and talking to the other guests at the table.

The Perfect Vacation

5 on May 20, 2013

I cannot say enough about Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast. If you have a chance to stay there it is a must. Troy and Kathleen are amazing as is everyone who works at Chestnut Hill. The food is out of this world and the Inn is like a second home. This trip is now one of our fondest memories. Orange, Virginia and all of the surrounding areas are charming. If you have the chance to go, make a memory you won't forget.

Wonderful Place

5 on May 20, 2013

Chestnut Hill is a wonderful place. It is an opportunity to meet great people, have fabulous food, beautiful accommodations, and a warm and inviting atmosphere. Troy and Kathleen make your vacation here an experience you won’t forget. For us, it will always be one of our favorite vacations. We will be back!

Very Pleased (Great Comfort) :)

5 on May 02, 2013

We were very surprised by how much we were made to feel comfortable, and our room was so beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed. Glorious! So pleased by the way we were taken care of. The owners were just lovely people, and also the staff. Thank you so much for the wonderful time.

Loved It!

4.8 on April 27, 2013

Kathleen and Troy took care of all our needs. Would love to go back!

April Wedding Weekend

5 on April 21, 2013

The Chestnut Hill staff and innkerpers have customer service and attention to details down to a science. If we needed something, they were right there. I especially enjoyed the wonderful food and exquisite bedding. Wedding cupcakes in the hall to settle nerves, a seafood selection to set the special mood of the event. Troy was there to the last of the guests left and Kathleen was uppreparing a stuffed French toast for early Sunday departures. I can honestly say, our weekend wedding for our daughter and guests exceeded our expectations!

Oh! What a Wonderful Stay!

5 on April 18, 2013

Oh! What a wonderful stay! The first thing when we arrived we were told they would up-grade our room. Each room is so different but beautifully decorated. Then the food – Oh my! Gourmet plus! Savory and sweet. I rate this 6 stars out of 1-5 stars. The hospitality is above and beyond. I am looking forward to the next visit.


5 on April 15, 2013

This place was amazing! The workers were wonderful and personable. Every detail was over the top. We will be back!

Wonderful Stay at Chestnut Hill B&B

5 on April 10, 2013

We had such a wonderful stay at Chestnut Hill – from the wine and appetizers as we walked in to the most friendly hosts, Kathleen & Troy, and their wonderful staff. The rooms and lawns were stunning and the gourmet breakfasts were the best. We truly did not want to leave. What a fitting end to our Virginia vacation. ~ Quinnan & Cindy


5 on April 05, 2013

Outstanding! Super friendly owners, great views, clean, quiet, and a very relaxing get away! We’ll be back! J Thanks for the delicious food and wine!

Perfect Place to Hold a Wedding

5 on April 05, 2013

Chestnut Hill was the perfect place to hold a wedding. I will treasure the memories that we made on our special day! Thank you!

Had a Wonderful Time!

5 on April 05, 2013

Great stay! We had a wonderful time. Chestnut Hill spoiled us rotten! Loved it! Chestnut Hill was the most gracious and accommodating people we have ever had. The food was spectacular! If we lived closer we would stay many times! Thank you!


5 on March 28, 2013

Attention to detail, wonderful inn keepers, beautiful decor, scrumptious breakfasts, free flowing wind and beer, and the best cookies ever. It can't be better than Chestnut Hill!

Perfect Weekend Vacation

5 on March 25, 2013

This was our first B&B experience and we had such a fabulous time! As newlyweds, we needed a place to get away and rest - the time we had at Chestnut Hill was exactly what we needed. The service was exceptional and you have also blessed us with such warmth and comfort; it felt like we were staying at a family friend's place! The breakfasts and the company of other guests was delightful. Troy and Kathleen are such wonderful hosts. We are definitely recommending this place to all our friends and planning to come back. Thank you so much for making our weekend vacation perfect!! :) ~Paul & Ester

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

5 on March 20, 2013

Chestnut Hill was the perfect honeymoon getaway! The house is lovely, the fireplaces were perfect on chilly days, and the food (especially those chocolate oatmeal cookies) was top notch. We were so impressed that your staff managed to win the heart of our dog while we were there - all of those pats and kind words show what a friendly and welcoming place Chestnut Hill is! Best, Alison & Erik

Friendliest and Most Hospitable

5 on March 20, 2013

This is by and large the friendliest, most hospitable B and B we have been to. The breakfasts and happy hour food is beyond delish!!! Thank you Chestnut Hill for a memorable anniversary get-away. ~Jim and Pat

Wonderful Experience

5 on March 19, 2013

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was the utmost in luxury, comfort, and hospitality! The owners, Kathleen and Troy, were available with hands-on service to attend to our every need. Fabulous food and beverages. Excellent! Many Thanks. ~Vera & Ray

One night stay March 2013

4.8 on March 15, 2013

Outstanding welcome, and outstanding helpfulness with finding a restaurant that night, and also with finding routes for our next destination. We appreciated being taken in for a one night's stay when other B and Bs often require a number of nights to be booked.

I love this place!

5 on March 05, 2013

My wife and I have stayed at B&Bs all across the country, and Chestnut Hill, after a single stay, has become one of our favorites. The rooms are great, the atmosphere is relaxing and friendly, and the owners are absolutely delightful. We will be going back often.

Wonderful Weekend

5 on February 28, 2013

Thanks to Chestnut Hill for a wonderful weekend getaway. We had a great time and will recommend this place to everybody. ~Simon and Mariam

Warm and Welcoming

5 on February 27, 2013

Chestnut Hill is warm and welcoming. Thank you for your hospitality and genuine willingness to make our stay comfortable. The food was great and so was the company. Advice Chestnut Hill offered on local wineries and restaurants was appreciated. We hope to return to Chestnut Hill again soon! ~Mark & Mary Jo


5 on February 27, 2013

Great way to celebrate our 17th Anniversary. My husband said he thought he was staying with Martha Stewart with the gourmet breakfasts. Everything was perfect. All details were taken care of. The room was great and the bed and bedding clean and comfortable. Can't wait to come back!

A Gem in Orange, Va.

4.2 on February 26, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our stay tremendoulsy! The home is lovely and nicely maintained. The rooms are comfortable and the grounds are quiet and spacious. Kathleen and Troy were warm and welcoming hosts. They took care of everything for us, including making dinner reservations. I have no other B&B experiences to compare it to, but I can't imagine a place much better.

Best B&B

5 on February 24, 2013

Kathleen, Troy, and the staff make the B&B experience wonderful. They not only make you feel at home, but are so personable and friendly that you can talk with them for hours. They are wonderful hosts. The extra care they put into your stay makes this the best B&B experience we have had in the several B&B stays over our many years of travel. Treat yourself it is well worth it!


5 on February 22, 2013

Kathleen was awesome. She made us dinner reservations at one of the local restaurants. The house was beautiful and had an interesting history. Food and service was great! I will be going back! And this was my first B&B experience.

Once again a great stay

5 on February 20, 2013

The 5th time and yet another amazing visit. A surprisingly young crowd, per usual. As a 30-something I never thought I would enjoy a Bed and Breakfast but Chestnut Hill continues to be a great experience. One of the only getaways where we consistently spend the last hour there plotting our next visit!


5 on January 28, 2013

We loved the elegance of the B&B and the staff friendliness. We highly recommend it.

Weekend stay

5 on January 24, 2013

Most relaxing weekend ever! The proprietors when above and beyond to make everything amazing! The rooms were second to none. Being our first bed and breakfast don't see how I will be able to go to any others! Thanks again to everyone at the bnb who made it a weekend we will never forget!!!!!!

Best Bed and Breakfast Ever

5 on January 05, 2013

Troy and Kathleen were the best hosts we have ever had at a bed and breakfast. The rooms were wonderful, the food amazing and the hospitality above and beyond. They had an open bar, evening snacks of shrimp and crab. They even called 15 wineries for us the next day to see what ones were open since it was New Years Day. We also had a couples massage that was amazing as well. We will definately go back. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this one was by far the best! Fred and Jill Baker

Stay at Chestnut Hill

5 on January 05, 2013

Awesome stay over the new year.

Chestnut Hill B&B Reveiw

5 on January 03, 2013

An incredible find! Lovely accommodations, warm and friendly hosts. Hope to return again soon!

Amazing Elopement Weekend

5 on January 01, 2013

Our stay at Chestnut Hill exceeded all expectations, and the extra touches that Troy and Kathleen provided made it our favorite vacation weekend ever. We purchased the elopement package and you can read up on the items included in the bargain on their website. I wanted to talk about the 'extras' that made it magical. The house and lawn are gorgeous, with photo-friendly fountains and landscaping. The interior has been designed so that each room has character and warmth along with modern comforts (such as a flat-screen television hidden in the armoire). Some of our favorite surprises were fresh-baked cookies each night, chocolates on our pillows, wine and champagne in the downstairs bar, tickets to local vineyards, and even appetizers that were the size of entrees in most restaurants. The food was divine and made our trips to local restaurants pale in comparison (the egg casserole! the beef appetizer! the orange french toast!). As an eloping couple, we were given a bottle of wine after we took our vows, which was so sweet. Troy and Kathleen were truly curious about our experiences around town and in the surrounding counties and wanted to make sure we had the best trip possible. We were so sad to leave! There was only one thing that could be considered a negative and it is beyond Troy and Kathleen's control, which is the proximity to the Amtrak rails. However, the ability to walk to food and drinks makes up for that small inconvenience.

Our new favorite!

5 on December 26, 2012

Having stayed in many different B&B's, we can definitely say that Chestnut Hill is now our favorite! Not only are the accommodations and amenities beyond what we could imagine, but Troy & Kathleen, as innkeepers, made our stay most special. We felt extremely welcome as soon as we arrived. We appreciated all of the tidbits of information for restaurants, wineries, etc. Everything met and exceeded our expectations! We will definitely refer everybody we know to Chestnut Hill.

Perfect Weekend!

5 on December 16, 2012

We had such a wonderful time at Chestnut Hill. Between the wine, amazing food, beautiful room & adorable town, we will be returning! Thanks to Troy and Kathleen for such a wonderful time and lots of memories!

Preparing for our Empty Nest!

5 on December 16, 2012

We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and decided to pamper ourselves at this time... since we will soon be empty nesters with our son heading off to college next year. We wanted to experience a retreat for ourselves and find out about the charms that a bed & breakfast can offer. We found it! Chestnut Hill is exactly what we hoped for, nestled in the beautiful state of Virginia where we proudly call home. Troy and Kathleen have a treasure with Chestnut Hill. We can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Bed and Breakfast in historic Orange, Virginia!

5 on December 04, 2012

This is a beautiful facility for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The rooms are beautifully furnished. Guests are provided with a gourmet breakfast each morning and a glass of wine each afternoon. The owners are so cordial and accommodating! This is a jewel not to be missed!

Awesome B&B!

5 on December 04, 2012

This B&B is fantastic. The owners have renovated this historic house and spared no expense. The rooms are well decorated, comfortable, spacious, and have great bathrooms. Our room had a queen bed, sitting area, big TV, and a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The basement has a great bar area where everyone hangs out. The owners are awesome and make you feel so at home. The food is amazing! Their breakfasts are two courses and so delicious. They were even able to accommodate my gluten free diet. They also serve delicious hors d'oeuvres and wine around 5 every day in the bar. Orange is a nice town and there are lots of great restaurants nearby. Convenient to historical sites and Charlottesville. We had a great time and plan to go back!

Cannot say enough about our visit!

5 on November 27, 2012

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was wonderful. From the luxurious rooms, amenities and every detail was extraordinary. Troy needs to write a cook book - the breakfasts were yummy and we looked forward to our afternoon cookies! Every recommendation from restaurants, hiking trails, and events were spot on! I cannot say enough about our visit. The decorations and special touches in each room made you feel at home, actually better than home since we were waited on constantly! Loved it! We look forward to returning to Chestnut Hill. Don & Kathy.

We were treated like family!

5 on November 07, 2012

Kathleen & Troy treated us like family! Comfortable and informal. The food was great and our whole stay was warm and inviting. We truly enjoyed our anniversary weekend at Chestnut Hill. Having never been to the Montpelier Hunt Races (or any other race for that matter) the day was a real treat. The set up on the rail was perfect! All of the guests felt like old friends. The "family" style breakfast was decadent - now if my husband would just make Grand Mariner French Toast stuffed with Italian Marscapone everyday!!!

Superior accommodations and exactly as advertised!

5 on October 30, 2012

Great place, you can"t go wrong with any room selected, breakfast, evening appetizers, and drinks (wine, beer, soft drinks) were A+ Hosts very engaging and helpful with maps, dinning suggestions, and overall service. We will return again!Only disappointment was we stayed for 1 night, next time it will be for 2 or more nights.

Great place! Great food! Fun atmosphere!

4.6 on October 22, 2012

We had a great time. The proprietors are friendly people who know the town well - they dote on you while you're there and are great conversationalists. They've really invested the place with their personality and charm. The nearby area is small but pleasant - not far from Charlottesville, so you can hop over there if you're more interested. The breakfast was amazing: for some reason I was expecting buffet-style, but this far exceeded my expectations! And there's free wine and beer included, which I didn't know about. Here's your only concern: the bottom floor rooms can be noisy. There's a bar area right outside that serves the beer and wine and also acts as a social area. It closes at 8 PM, but from about 5 till 8, it was hopping. You might want to make sure you get the upstairs rooms if you can. Still, it was fun getting to know the others guests in this area: just don't plan on taking a late afternoon nap. Definitely recommended! We'll be back.

Perfect Experience Start to Finish!

5 on October 04, 2012

We went to Chestnut Hill to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. (All the way from Ontario, Canada.) This was the most perfect experience, start to finish! The room (& the whole inn for that matter) was exquisitely decorated, warm and comfortable, while also luxurious - quite an accomplishment. The food was delicious, imaginative & beautifully prepared. I can't think of anything we could have wanted that wasn't provided. Finally, Troy and Kathleen were warm, friendly and extremely helpful. We genuinely enjoyed getting to know them both. We look forward to returning sometime in the future. P.S. Loved the "Man Cave!"

Fantastic Wedding Venue!

5 on September 23, 2012

Troy and Kathleen helped make our weding magical. Everything was beautiful. The accommodations were comfortable and relaxing for the whole family. Choosing Chestnut Hill for our wedding was the perfect decision!

Once is Not Enough

5 on September 16, 2012

Once is most definitely "not enough" in the case of Troy and Kathleen's incomparable Chestnut Hill. Where to begin? The grounds? impeccable and uber-tasteful. The house? jaw-dropping gorgeous, leaving "moi" at an utter loss for words.The breakfast? photo-shop perfect and equally original and delectable. To wit: five stars on all of the tangible Bed and Breakfast criteria. But the "magic" of this special place is as much about the owners, Troy and Kathleen who embody what an exceptional "B and B Experience" is all about: genuine human connection and sincere hospitality. Once was definitely not enough, and so we returned. To be continued.


5 on September 07, 2012

We went back to stay after one year of marriage. This is the best bed and breakfast in the States bar none. Kathleen, Troy and the staff catered to our every need for the second time. We are looking forward to many more visits. The breakfast was fantastically delicious.. The fish pond is an added value that brings calm and tranqulity to any stay. John B.


5 on August 30, 2012

My husband and I recently spent the weekend at Chestnut Hill B&B celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. We could not have picked at better location! Troy and Kathleen are wonderful hosts and the food was divine!. Thank you both for making our anniversary a very memorable event David and Karla

Birthday Surprise!

5 on August 22, 2012

I planned a surprise weekend for my wife's 50th birthday. Chestnut Hill exceeded all of our expectations and my wife's surprise birthday weekend was a huge success. I planned a few surprises for my wife and our hosts, Kathleen and Troy carried them out wonderfully. Kathleen and Troy are second to none in all of our travels. The entire atmosphere they created made you feel as if you were a regular visitor to Chestnut Hill. The room was so quite no noise was heard from outside the room at any time of the day. Their recommendation for a romantic and quite restaurant for dinner our first night was absolutely wonderful. They even called the restaurant to inform the staff of our celebration. The service and food was some of the best that we have ever had. When the waiter told us that they were out of the wine I had ordered, the wine stewart offered a more expensive substitute at the same price as the wine they were out of. We also enjoyed the surprise desert that they prepared for my wife. I highly recommend that you visit the Charlottsville area, visit several of the many wineries and by all means treat yourself and stay at the Chestnut Hill B & B.

Our Anniversay Stay

4.6 on August 15, 2012

Our time at Chestnuthill was spectacular. We did not want to leave. From the roses, wine and chocolate in our room to the hospitality displayed by Troy and Kathleen it was great. We are truly spoiled and spend our quality time away only at Chestnut Hill. Our only comment we found some hair under the overflow spout in the bath tub of Ask Anna. No big deal but thought you would want to know.. We are looking forward to our next stay... The Oltmans

Exceptional Hospitality!

4.8 on July 30, 2012

Chestnut Hill is absolutely beautiful, Troy and Kathleen are exceptional hosts, food is outstanding! We'll will definitely be back!


4.8 on July 26, 2012

My wife and I spent our 1 year anniversary here and it was awesome. I would definitely suggest Chestnut Hill to anyone who is looking for a great B&B. We will be coming back on our 2 year anniversary.

Breakfast Extraordinaire!

5 on July 25, 2012

This was by far the BEST experience we have had with a B&B. Kathleen and Troy single-handedly raised the bar for all B&B's. I was spoiled! From planning our days sight-seeing to preparing a breakfast - extraordinaire, it was hard to leave!

Stellar bed and breakfast !

5 on July 08, 2012

This beautiful B&B totally exceeded our expectations. I've told my friends to stay here. Very friendly and comfy. We will be back.

Quintessential B&B!

5 on July 05, 2012

Congratulations to Troy and Kathleen on creating this quintessential B&B! EVERYTHING was universally superb, from the hospitality to the magnificent happy hours to the wonderfully creative and sumptuous breakfasts. We felt so very fortunate to have discovered their beautiful inn and we are already making plans to return -- and bring several neighbors with us. Troy and Kathleen made us feel more like family than guests.

Fantastic Stay!

5 on July 03, 2012

Troy and Kathleen made me feel like one of the family. The bed was extremely comfortable, the wine and hors d'oeuvres were delicious and the breakfast beautifully presented and tasty!

Parents of the Groom

5 on July 01, 2012

We had an outstanding wedding event at Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast in Orange, Virginia. Kathleen & Troy took care of our every request while providing delicious food and a comfortable "home away from home." We would highly recommend this B&B for your outdoor wedding venue for a night or weekend event.

Best Bed & Breakfast Ever!!

5 on June 18, 2012

We live just 30 minutes away but this is the best getaway place. When you first pull up, you are greeted with the smiles of your gracious hosts, Kathleen and Troy. This is only the beginning of one of the best experiences. The home (and this is truly a home) is perfection, warm & inviting, the food is fantastic, but the best part is the feeling of welcome you receive from Kathleen & Troy. This is a MUST stay for all!!!

Wedding at Chestnut Hill

5 on June 18, 2012

We had the pleasure of staying at Chestnut Hill for my son's wedding. They chose the site because they fell in love with it the moment they saw it and with the owners, Troy & Kathleen. They have created an absolutely beautiful house and grounds. They are extremely gracious, warm and go out of their way to do everything they can to make your stay and event a wonderful experience. I HIGHLY recommend Chestnut Hill Inn in Orange, Virginia for a B&B but especially for an event, such as a wedding. It was perfect!

Loved Chestnut Hill

5 on June 13, 2012

Loved staying at Chestnut Hill. Kathleen & Troy were so accommodating and helped make our stay in the Orange, Virginia area a real treat. The rooms are beautiful and so well equipped. We loved the late afternoon appetizers and wine in the "pub." Breakfasts were yummy!


4.8 on June 03, 2012

An absolutely charming B&B. I felt right at home and was provided lots of ideas on things to do. I definitely plan on returning.

Exceptional Hosts

5 on May 20, 2012

Troy and Kathleen are exceptional hosts. We were met with such a warm and gracious greeting so that we immediately felt at home. Our room was clean and appointed with quality linens and toiletries. Although the house is a 1860s home, everything inside has been remodeled, so the shower and tub, fixtures, floors, etc. Were as nice as a luxury hotel. The food was beyond exceptional and good conversation with Troy and Kathleen. Oh yeah, they know just were to eat and suggest accordingly to guests needs. Wonderful!

Fabulous B&B and fabulous hosts as well!

5 on May 20, 2012

This B&B is a true find. The hosts are incredibly friendly, attentive, and responsive. The rooms are gorgeous and spotless. If you want to be pampered in luxurious surroundings this is the place!

Over the Top!

5 on May 16, 2012

Wonderful time! Accommodations were over and beyond what we expected. Troy and Kathleen always make you feel welcome. They are very knowledgeable about where to eat, what to do in the area, anything you want to do they will help! Will be back sooner than later. What a great experience!!

Best Of The Best

5 on May 01, 2012

While we have stayed at many great B&Bs, Chestnut Hill is by far the best. Kathleen and Troy are wonderful hosts. We normally like to try new places and not return to places we have visited. However, we have been to Chestnut Hill 3 times in the past 7 months and will go back again. For an exceptional B&B experience you can not do better than the Chestnut Hill!

My grandmothers old house

5 on April 29, 2012

This brought back many old memories. The restoration of this old home is awesome, many items are just the way I remember. Our stay was very exciting, toured the home and grounds, spent a very restful night, excellent breakfast in morning. This B&B is my grandmothers old home. I have not been there for over 35 years, but the stay was extremely fulfilling.

Great Time at Chestnut Hill B&B

4.8 on April 26, 2012

What a nice place to stay. Troy and Kathleen are top notch hosts and very friendly. The house is very well done with each room having a different theme. If you stay take the time to look at the book on the movement and restoration of the house. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. If you are looking for things to do during your stay Tray and Kathleen have lots of ideas. I would highly recommend Chestnut Hill B&B.

A day we will Never forget!

5 on April 23, 2012

Our wedding was one that was planned to be very small and intimate. Never in our wildest dreams did we realize with the help of Kathleen and Troy that it would be so elegant. Our day could not have been more perfect! Kathleen and Troy were more than InnKeepers they are truly wedding coordinators. Our cake was "the best cake I have ever tasted" that was my husbands quote. The breakfasts were out of this world prepared by Kathleen herself and her staff. The cookies! fresh baked daily and warm... so good we just had to take some home :) We will never,ever forget our PERFECT wedding. I don't think my husband and I have ever felt so relaxed and comfortable as we did during our stay at Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast. I would also like to add the ENTIRE staff at Chestnut Hill are wonderful we did not meet one person who works there who didn't go above and beyond to make sure we always had everything we could want or need.

Truly Enjoyable

5 on April 18, 2012

Kathleen and Troy have recreated an era that is so difficult to experience today. Their attention to detail and their hospitality was amazing. The stay was truly enjoyable.

Wedding Dream Come True!

5 on April 15, 2012

Thanks to Kathleen & Troy for making our son's wedding dream come true. No detail was overlooked. The food was excellent and the stay was a luxurious experience that exceeded our expectations. We really enjoyed the personalized service. Troy and Kathleen made this a lifetime experience.

Wonderful Stay!

5 on April 11, 2012

Our stay was wonderful! Everything from the food to the accommodations to the degree of service and hospitality were all outstanding. We loved meeting Troy and Kathleen and will definitely plan on going back in the future.

Very nice visit to Virginia

4.4 on April 11, 2012

Chestnut Hill was a lovely place to spend a few days during our visit to Virginia. Kathleen and Troy were very gracious hosts and our room lovely. The breakfasts each morning were exceptional. There are many wonderful historical places to visit in this area of Virginia and Chestnut Hill is centrally located to take advantage of many.


5 on April 08, 2012

Our stay at Chestnut Hill could not have been a better experience. Premier hosts at a premier facility. The afternoon wine and appetizers were a special treat as were the breakfasts. We quickly depended on their "guide" expertise to tour the area. Many wonderful sights to see. The horseback riding is a must! We enjoyed it all. The personalized service made it even more special! Brad, Gwen & Lia, Rockaway, NJ.

Third time's a charm!

5 on March 22, 2012

This was our third stay at Chestnut Hill and yet again it was an amazing experience. From 5 ”o” clock happy hour appetizers to turn down service with chocolates to delicious breakfast meals, we had an incredible stay. They have updated the outdoor patio since our last visit so we enjoyed some quality time enjoying spring time next to the bubbling fountain. Kathleen and Troy are the hosts with the most and we’ll certainly be back yet again!

A Great Stay in Orange Virginia!

5 on March 22, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Chestnut Hill B&B this past weekend and had a great time. This B&B has great rooms, great proprietors and wonderful food! This was our third stay at Chestnut Hill and we'll definitely be coming back for more in the years to come! I highly recommend to all of our friends and co-workers.

First B&B Stay

5 on March 12, 2012

This was our first stay at a B&B and Troy and Kathleen made it a great experience for us. The rooms and grounds are beautiful and they made us feel right at home. The food was fantastic and they gave us great recommendations for things to do and even mapped it all out for us. I look forward to a return visit and will definitely recommend Chestnut Hill to my friends.


5 on March 12, 2012

Chestnut Hill was one of the best getaways we have ever had. Everything was so amazing, luxurious and comfortable all at the same time. The food was gourmet & FANTASTIC. We never went hungry or thirsty. Our stay could not have been any better. We will certainly be back for years to come!

Fabulous Weekend!

4.8 on March 05, 2012

We had a fabulous weekend! We chose to return to Chestnut Hill because we had such a positive experience a year ago. Never have I felt so pampered and relaxed. From the greeting on Friday - with drinks and lucious appetizers - to the gourmet breakfast on Sunday, we enjoyed the accommodations and the gracious hosts. Kathleen and Troy do so many "extras" for their guests in a way that makes us feel like royalty for a weekend.

Couples Retreat

5 on February 26, 2012

My husband and I shared this glorious weekend at Chestnut Hill. It was the best time in years. The food was wonderful. Troy is a great chef. Kathleen is a great hostess. She coordinated the best evening of my life that included eating dinner at a fine restaurant called Vintage. I was reminded of the time my husband and I first met. This stay was more than I expected. An elegant weekend away. If I am ever in need of a get away with my husband, we will spend time again at Chestnut Hill recapturing the love we share.

Couples Retreat - Renewing our Promise/Understanding our Purpose

5 on February 26, 2012

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was more than we could ever imagine! We travel a lot but have never stayed at a B&B because we didn't know what to expect. From the warm welcome to the simple, elegant touches in the rooms - our stay was simply amazing. And, the food was too good for words. We used Chestnut Hill for our couples retreat - three couples at Chestnut Hill was the time of our lives!

Romantic Bridal Suite Stay!

5 on February 25, 2012

We had an amazing and romantic stay. From the moment we walked through the door we felt so welcomed by owners Troy & Kathleen. They are fantastic hosts! The Bridal Suite is beautiful and elegant yet very comfortable. We didn't want to leave. We will definitely be going back at least once a year!

Wonderful B&B

5 on February 20, 2012

Wonderful B&B. We really enjoyed our stay. Troy and Kathleen have done an amazing job and they go above and beyond. The food was outstanding!

Beautiful B&B

5 on February 20, 2012

This was the most beautiful B&B we have ever stayed at, and, we've stayed at many B&B's around the world. The house is gorgeous, the food & drink fabulous and the hospitality exceptional. We will definitely return and plan to spread the word about how terrific Chestnut Hill is!

Perfect Stay to Rejuvenate

5 on February 18, 2012

Our visit to Chestnut Hill was a much needed break to rejuvenate our batteries. We loved our suite with the wonderful bathroom. The fireplace across from the Jacuzzi tub was perfect. Loved the furnishings, the burst of color around every turn and the great conversations. Oliver (Maltese) was the perfect welcoming host for a beautiful weekend. We will be returning for another stay in the Spring.

Perfect Place to Stay

5 on February 18, 2012

Perfect Place to Stay Troy and Kathleen were so wonderful from the very first conversation over the phone, and through out the whole stay. The area, rooms, house and service were all amazing. The beds were so comfortable and the food was delicious. This was our first B&B stay and we will definitely be returning to Chestnut Hill!

The Best!

5 on February 15, 2012

We were married at Chestnut Hill one year ago today and came back to celebrate our one year anniversary. Once again, we loved, loved, loved this B&B. Our only complaint was that we weren't staying a second night! Thanks so much to Troy and Kathleen for this beautiful place that we cannot wait to return to year after year!

Beautiful... worth every penny!

5 on February 12, 2012

Truly the best B&B experience we've had! The home is amazingly decorated yet very comfortable. Luxury bed and linens were greatly appreciated on a cold night in February. The owners were gracious and wonderfully accommodating.

Lovely Weekend

4.6 on January 31, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Chesnut Hill-the home was beautiful and the home looks even better than the photos. We enjoyed the little touches such as a daily happy hour and bath salts in our room (we stayed in Ask Anna suite). Kathleen and Troy are very accomodating and you will not be disappointed!

Over the Top!

5 on January 27, 2012

"Over the Top" is a great catch phrase for this Inn not only because it sits on top of a hill with a stately presence and view of the town below, but mostly because the experience is so luxurious it really is "over the top." The Innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen, think of everything, and do everything to make you feel pampered, but in the comforts of being right at home. An unforgettable visit!

Perfect Place for a Honeymoon!

5 on January 27, 2012

My wife and I wanted a honeymoon somewhere within driving distance from home. We did not expect to find a place so beautiful and close with so much to offer. Kathleen and Troy went out of their way to ensure we were completely comfortable and always with a smile. The breakfasts were amazing, unique and made from scratch. This was, by far, the perfect place for a honeymoon

Chestnut Hill B&B is a great getaway!

4.4 on January 18, 2012

My friend and I were looking for a B&B to stay during a weekend of winery-hopping, and Chestnut Hill was a perfect choice! It was only 20 mins away from the wineries and it is a beautiful property! The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was chef-quality - we had a crab cake eggs benedict one morning and amazing french toast the second morning. The best part, however, was the hospitality of the owners. They greeted us with wine at check-in and printed directions for the wineries and dining. Their suggestions were very helpful in making our stay memorable. I highly recommend Chestnut Hill!

A great getaway to start the new year!

4.2 on January 17, 2012

Chestnut Hill was the perfect place to spend New Year's Day. Kathleen and Troy Ayers were lovely - more than hospitable, always offering helpful suggestions for how we could best utilize our time. Our room was absolutely amazing... we didn't want to leave!

Exceptional Weekend!

5 on January 16, 2012

What an exceptional weekend we had! Their hospitality is truly beyond compare and the room we stayed in was among the very best we have had the privilege to vacation in. It was a very restful weekend... Just what we needed. Thanks to Troy and Kathleen for sharing their lovely, historic, beautifully decorated bed & breakfast!

We can't wait to return!

5 on January 16, 2012

We really appreciated their hospitality and the beautiful home. Their service, food, wine, hospitality and charm rival most of the high-end resorts that we've stayed at in the past. We can't wait to go back and we'll miss Oliver & Nikki!! Craig & Firouzeh

Amazing Return Visit

5 on January 05, 2012

For New Years Eve we returned to Chestnut Hill for another fantastic stay! From our brewery tour (5 breweries with a driver) to wonderful accommodations and food, we found ourselves already planning another trip to Chestnut Hill. We love the house, Troy & Kathleen, the food and the surroundings - we will be back!

Over the top Fabulous!

5 on January 05, 2012

Hands down best weekend at any B&B we've been to! Kathleen & Troy are so gracious and welcoming we felt like we were at home away from home. The decor, food and hospitality was over the top fabulous. We will definitely be back! Wherever the house may "move," we will come! Happy New Year! Sinclair & Jonathan

Fabulous New Year Weekend Getaway

5 on January 05, 2012

Chestnut Hill is the No. 1 Traveler's Choice B&B for a reason - it is truly a Fabulous 5 Star Bed & Breakfast with the highest quality amenities. Gorgeous Room and Top Quality Linens & furnishings, ambience of having a Fireplace in the Room & the Bath was outstanding, absolutely delicious breakfasts but most importantly was the hospitality and friendliness of the Innkeepers - Troy and Kathleen. They made our stay even better!! As seasonsed B&B travelers, we can honestly say that this is really an oustanding Bed & Breakfast - from the accommodations, to the food, to making you feel like you are at home with old friends. Thank you for making our New Year Weekend Getaway a memorable experience. We shall return. Rob and Ruth Ann

New Year's Eve

5 on January 04, 2012

What an amazing and memorable weekend and New Year's Eve. It really was a perfect way to bring in the new year. The decor and attention to detail was unparalleled and their gourmet breakfast each morning was a great way to start the day. Their story is beautiful and inspiring. They allow guests to be at home, not just guests in their home. Hence, it was wonderful getting to know Troy and Kathleen and I'm sure they'll see us again! Jessica & Michael.


5 on December 31, 2011

Excellent place. Homey, clean and the hospitality was outstanding! We would recommend it to our friends.

Honeymoon in Virginia!

5 on December 23, 2011

Exceeded our Expectations!

5 on December 19, 2011

What a wonderfully relaxing weekend we had at Chestnut Hill! Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. The only thing that got me out of the most comfortable bed I have EVER slept in... Was the culinary delight that they served for breakfast!!! We truly appreciated their hospitality. Staying at Chestnut Hill was like visiting with old friends. We will definitely go back in 2012. Rob & Laura, Gainsville, VA

Perfect Amount of Charm, Hospitality and Relaxation

5 on December 05, 2011

Troy and Kathleen were amazing hosts. We immediately felt right at home when we entered Chestnut Hill. The Alexander Daley room was perfect for our weekend getaway.

Wonderful Luck!

5 on December 02, 2011

What wonderful luck to find this beautiful and outstanding bed & breakfast on the WEB. It truly lived up to and exceeded all of our expectations. Troy and Kathleen helped in so many ways to make our anniversary celebration one we will never forget! We are looking forward to returning in the future. Our heartfelt wishes for their continued success. Joel & Glenda

Over the Top!

5 on November 27, 2011

What a wonderful B&B experience. The accommodations were beyond luxury and their hospitality was so over the top gracious! We benefited from their knowledge of the area and attractions and found some awesome haunts we would have otherwise missed. Thanks to Troy and Kathleen for providing this oasis!

Phenomenal B & B

5 on November 21, 2011

Troy and Kathleen welcomed us into their beautiful home with smiles and hospitality, this was our first B & B and my husband and I had no idea what to expect, we were pleastantly surprised. The inn is georgous and the rooms are to die for. Breakfast was fabulous every morning and Troy makes the BEST spring rolls we have ever tasted. Needless, to say Troy and Kathleen became great friends over the course of a 48 hour weekend. Words cannot describe their hospitality and kindness. My husband and I will be returning to Chestnut Hill. Shelia & Angelo


5 on November 08, 2011

Fabulous! The most gracious hosts and the best food around. We will definitely go back to enjoy the beautiful scenery, hospitality and luxury that Chestnut Hill has to offer.


5 on November 07, 2011

This place is #1 for a reason! Beautiful, historic facility. Delicious food, immaculate rooms and, most of all, friendly innkeepers beyond compare. We really appreciated everything Kathleen and Troy did for us during our stay. We hope to see them again soon.


5 on November 07, 2011

My new FIANCE and I had a wonderful stay at Chestnut Hill! Troy and Kathleen provided a very warm, welcoming environment for our romantic engagement getaway. We're already planning on returning for our future anniversaries!

Chestnut Hill B&B Everything Advertised and More!!!

5 on October 29, 2011

This was our first stay at a B&B and we had conducted much research before choosing Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast in Orange, VA. It was a great experience and Troy and Kathy were wonderful hosts. They made us feel welcome from the time we stepped foot through the door. They were never too busty to chat and provided great recommendations (and directions) for sightseeing and restaurants. This stay has made us believers in B&B, vice hotel stays. We recommend Chestnut Hill to anyone looking for a get away for some rest and relaxation!

A gorgeous house house overlooking a cute town

5 on October 23, 2011

Troy and Kathleen welcomed us into their beautiful home with smiles and hospitality. Every morning we awoke to a gourmet breakfast in a lovely dining room. They were always helpful, from suggestions for fun day activities to fantastic dining experiences. We were never disappointed. The wineries were exceptional, so many flavors and choices. Lovely Montpelier only a short drive away. A cute little bar with live music just down the street. Kathleen always smiling, and Troy always helpful. We thank them both for a lovely honeymoon week and we will be back!


5 on October 23, 2011

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was amazing and the owners were very attentive to our every need. We will be returning! Brelee and Cain Anderson

Best B&B Ever!

5 on October 17, 2011

Outstanding Hospitaity

5 on October 15, 2011

This was our 2nd week-long stay at Chestnut Hill. Staying there is like staying with friends. Kathleen and Troy offer a warm and welcoming visit from their genuine interest in our daily activities to the delicious breakfasts and evening appetizers. They exemplify southern hospitality. We're already looking forward to visit #3

Honeymoon Stay

5 on October 15, 2011

From the first view of the inn as we drove up the steep driveway, we knew we were in for a treat... and we were not disappointed. The innkeepers treated us like very special guests but made us feel like family. The room was spacious and well appointed. The food was delicious and the ambiance was first class. We WILL return!


5 on October 12, 2011

We had an outstanding time at Chestnut Hill. It was beautiful, the food was excellent and Troy & Kathleen really went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating.


5 on October 11, 2011

This was a fantastic four-day weekend. It was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday with plenty of rest and relaxation! The house is a beautiful place and our room was gorgeous. The breakfast every morning was delicious and such a special way to start the day. We are already looking forward to going back again soon! Laura & Tony. Williamsburg, VA.

Annual Fall Getaway

5 on October 10, 2011

Our annual fall getaway at Chestnut Hill just gets better and better! I think the reason for that is that we not only cherish the weekend with our friends of 45 years but now we count Kathleen & Troy as our friends as well. We're privileged to have been their guests for each of the three years they've been open and plan to return year after year. They share themselves so generously and genuinely. The spirit that abides at Chestnut Hill is a very special one.

Chestnut Hill

4.8 on October 10, 2011

We absolutely loved our stay at the Chestnut Hill B&B! The innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen, were so charming and informative. The inn itself was so much more lovely than we had expected. The pictures online, while great, did not do the Inn justice. The house is immaculate, cozy, beautifully decorated and well appointed. Our room, the bridal suite, was like our own little apartment--I hated to leave it! WE will definitely return to Chestnut Hill.

Top Notch in Every Way

5 on October 08, 2011

From the first step into this luxurious Inn, we felt welcome. The hosts, surroundings, food and fellow guests were outstanding. We can't wait to return!

Beautiful B & B

5 on October 08, 2011

This was a very beautiful B & B. the couple, Kathleen and Troy, who run it went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. The food was over the top. The room was very comfortable and the decor was lovelly. We enjoyed meeting the owners and their other guest.

Wonderful Weekend

4.8 on October 03, 2011

The scent of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies wafted over us as we entered Chestnut Hill, signifying that this was not only a beautiful place to stay (we had seen the photos online after all), but also a place filled with warm hospitality. The attention to every detail did not go unnoticed. The grounds including a fire pit, waterfall, patio, koi pond and garden were as impressive as the rooms inside. This is the prettiest bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in, as well as the cleanest. Chestnut Hill sets a high standard of luxurious living. I did not feel like I was staying in someone’s home, but in a five star hotel. Yes, you should visit here.

Wonderful stay

4.8 on October 03, 2011

I had a wonderful two nights at Chestnut Hill B&B. Kathleen and Troy were wonderful hosts and so helpful. I cannot wait to return.

First B&B Experience

5 on September 25, 2011

This was our first B&B experience and it was just perfect. The individual attention was superb and the atmosphere could not have been warmer!

Three Wonderful Days!

5 on September 25, 2011

We spent the last three days at Chestnut Hill. With their talents and their open hearts they have created a place with an unforgettable atmosphere! This B&B is the Best of the Best of the Best!!! We travel a lot (including Europe) and tried many different hotels, inns, etc. This is beyond any comparison! Charming, fantastically decorated (with great taste, design, etc.) And the food will definitely please the kings! We felt like royalty there. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We are so happy we chose Chestnut Hill to stay for our friends wedding. I hope their enthusiasm will keep them going for a long time so many more people can enjoy their stays. Elena & Sergey, Lexington KY

Fantastic Experience

5 on September 24, 2011

I cannot begin to describe what a fantastic experience we had at Chestnut Hill. Our last holiday was three years ago so my expectations were very high. They way surpassed them all. Not only is their home beautiful and luxurious, it is also warm and inviting. However, the hospitality and friendship they've shown us exceeds even the home! They are the perfect hosts (and cooks!) and I'm looking forward to our next visit! Debi & Ed, Queensville, ONT. CANADA

Beyond our Expectations

5 on September 24, 2011

Our visit to Chestnut Hill was beyond our expectations. The combination of the "old" and the "new" environment was spectacular. We have been to The Inn at Little Washington and feel that Chestnut Hill is far superior. God willing, we hope to return for our 55th wedding anniversary next year. P.S. Don't fire the chef; his culinary talents are superb.

Wedding Weekend

5 on September 18, 2011

What an exceptional venue and, by far, the most professional, accommodating and genuinely friendly hosts one could hope for. They obviously have perfected the wedding event experience and they make their guests feel like they are part of their family. It could not have been a nicer weekend!

Wonderful Hosts

5 on September 16, 2011

Kathleen and Troy were wonderful hosts. Their inn is by far the most comfortable and relaxing B&B we have experienced. Breakfasts were unique and delicious. It is a beautifully decorated inn and their meticulous care shows through.

Outstanding Bed & Breakfast

5 on September 13, 2011

We had a fantastic stay the this beautiful Bed & Breakfast! This was our first stay at a B&B but Chestnut Hill rivals the best hotels we have stayed in around the world. Kathleen and Troy Ayers, the owners and operators of Chestnut Hill are so warm and hospitable that they made our 42 anniversary stay a very memorable one. We plan to return again in the near future.

A First Class B&B!

5 on September 13, 2011

It just doesn't get any better than this! Situated on a beautifully landscaped hill, the decor was both charming and elegant. The innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen, are warm and gracious and have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable and special. The breakfasts were truly exceptional! Our stay was delightful and memorable and we'll definitely return!

Wonderful Accomodations!

5 on September 12, 2011

Great bed and breakfast. The rooms were spectacular, comfortable, beautiful with d noticeable attention to detail. The owners were friendly and hospitable. We were impressed by their individualized recommendations for restaurants and local attractions.

Great Experience

4.8 on August 24, 2011

The atmosphere and inn keepers were extremely friendly and helpful. They went beyond expectations in assisting us with things we wanted to do and how to get to the attractions we wanted to see. They also went beyond expectations in making our 48th anniversary special.

Absolutely beautiful in every way!

5 on August 14, 2011

The house is absolutely beautiful! The hospitality unbelievable - We felt like part of the family. Anything we needed, they were both there to help. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to spend our 15th anniversary. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Wonderful Experience

5 on August 14, 2011

This was a wonderful experience for us. We could see why they love this place and what a wonderful job they did to conserve a piece of history. The house is beautiful and we hope they keep up what they're doing!

A very special B&B

5 on August 14, 2011

Just making the reservation at Chestnut Hill starts a very special relationship with Kathleen and Troy. But, that's only the beginning. Your time at this magical inn just continues to be more special at every turn. The house is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful and the friendship is a treasure that we will keep for a long time.


5 on August 11, 2011

This was our first stay at any B&B. It was terrific! Troy and Kathleen couldn't have been more accommodating. Would certainly go again. `

Simply wonderful!

5 on August 11, 2011

Simply wonderful! Great hospitality - great getaway - luxurious. Quiet, quaint, a home away from home. We will be back!

A lovely b and b in a quaint town

Wine Weekend

5 on August 01, 2011

A few months back some friends and I decided we needed a wine weekend. We found Chestnut Hill and it was the best choice we could have made! Troy and Kathleen were amazing from the very beginning - making sure they had everything we could want and need and making sure our friends felt welcome and they also set up massages and vineyard tours for us. Best of all, on by their beautiful fountain, my boyfriend ended up proposing to me!

Good times

5 on August 01, 2011

Outstanding hospitality and accommodations. Troy and Kathleen have created a wonderful space to relax and enjoy while doing their best to personalize it to make their guests as comfortable as possible.

Opulent and Outstanding

5 on August 01, 2011

An absolute oasis - while we went to enjoy wine country, we ended up enjoying being at the B&B as much or more than any activity. In fact, next time (and there will be a next time) I plan to cut back on activities in order to spend more time simply relaxing at Chestnut Hill.

Lovely Vacation

5 on July 27, 2011

We had a tremendous time at Chestnut Hill. Troy and Kathleen made us feel right at home and comfortable. The food was incredible and the room was absolutely beautiful. We would love to return there with our children and have them experience such a lovely vacation.


5 on July 26, 2011

Top-notch accommodations, great customer service. Great location for activities and shopping.

an excellent stay

4.0 on July 24, 2011

This bed and breakfast was an amazing stay. I travelled with my daughter and we absolutely loved the story of the beautiful home, the welcome platter of cheeses, crackers, and wine, the amazing bed, the beautiful garden, and the yummy breakfast. The owners, Troy and Kathy were so hospitable and helpful. My only regret is that I never did get that picture of the beautiful cardinal coming up to the bird feeder. I would definitely stay here again!

Outstanding Hospitality

5 on July 20, 2011

The owners make you feel like you are family. Very comfortable setting. Wonderful house. Grounds are beautiful.

Wonderful Experience!

5 on July 20, 2011

The minute you arrive at Chestnut Hill you are welcomed like old friends. The home and surrounding grounds are beautiful and relaxing. It is appropriately decorated for the era of the house but does not feel like a museum. Guests are encouraged to get comfortable and enjoy their stay. We would definitely recommend this B&B!


5 on July 18, 2011

Troy & Kathleen could not have been more accommodating. The breakfasts were excellent and the snacks and appetizers served as lovely additions to the wine we purchased in the area. We highly recommend Chestnut Hill to any traveler and will deinitely be staying there again. The only down side - Orange and it's surrounding area do not have many kid-friendly attractions. This is definitely an adult-only vacation area.

Wonderful experience.... again!

5 on July 18, 2011

Chestnut Hill is the most beautiful bed & breakfast! Troy and Kathleen are wonderful hosts and chefs! The grounds and rooms are well kept, clean, and beautifully decorated.


5 on July 15, 2011

Troy and Kathleen are the best at everything they do. I felt like I was in the lap of luxury! Beautiful, amazing, wonderful hospitality and first class accommodations. I highly recommend them to anyone because they won't be disappointed.

Five star experience

4.8 on July 08, 2011

Wonderful BnB. Truly a five star experience. We stayed in the Alexander Daley suite and it was heaven. The food was delicious and Troy and Kathleen were wonderful hosts. There service was through the roof with every detail thought of to make our stay wonderful. They helped us find wonderful restaurants and activities to make our stay very memorable. We highly recommend Chestnut Hill.

Warm, gracious hospitality

4.8 on July 06, 2011

The inn is s beautiful as it appears on the website. The innkeepers go out of their way to make you feel welcome and your stay as comfortable as possible. The inn exceeded our expectations. We had our vow renewal ceremony at the inn and everything was beautiful!

Amazing weekend!

5 on July 05, 2011

We had an amazing weekend. The breakfast each morning was outstanding not only in presentation but taste as well. We felt as though we were queen and king each morning. We truly appreciated all that they did for our little Miss Lilly. They made our weekend possible by caring for our crazy puppy. She loved hanging out with them all day and the loved the long walks they took her on. Their food recommendations and travel spots were dead on. We loved the sky diving and Restaurant Pomme in Gordonsville.

Our first stay at a B&B

5 on July 03, 2011

This was our first stay at a B&B. It will not be our last. We were treated like family in a beautiful home. We are already planning to return soon. As wonderful as the home was, the proprietors were more so. Go relax and enjoy this wonderful place!

Best B&B Ever!

5 on July 01, 2011

Words cannot fully describe the gracious hospitality of Troy and Kathleen. They are two of the most thoughtful, generous and kind hosts. They both went way above and beyond to enrich our visit here. The home is opulent, the furnishings are elegant and the bed linens were the highest quality thread count I have ever slept upon. They created an unforgettable and magical get-away that my friend and I will never forget. The food was healthy, plentiful and scrumptious tasting. I can't wait to return to this blissful, positive-energy filled home for further pampering. We are forever grateful.


5 on June 13, 2011

Great comfort. Great hospitality. Very elegant yet extremely relaxing. If we're ever close to Orange, we would definitely stay again!

The Best Bed & Breakfast In Virginia

5 on June 09, 2011

I found this lovely place online. I was impressed with all of the great reviews. I'm more impressed and beyond pleased after staying there for my birthday. This B&B is a piece of Heaven on Earth. I will recommend it and go back again in the future. It really felt like home. I fell in love with everything, their hosts kind spirit, charm and their beautiful home. I really appreciated them making my birthday so special.

Luxurious and Decandent

5 on June 06, 2011

This was perhaps the most luxurious, decadent and relaxing weekend getaway my husband and I have ever had. The owners, Troy and Kathleen, went above and beyond to pamper and accommodate us with a gorgeous suite and exquisite dining. The only sad part was that we had to leave! We would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

5 on June 04, 2011

This being our first B&B we really weren't sure what to expect but Kathleen & Troy really made this experience a great one. Everything about Chestnut Hill is first class from the rooms to the gourmet breakfast. It has a very welcoming atmosphere and we will definitely return.

More than Outstanding

5 on May 31, 2011

From the drive to get there, the location of the B&B on top of the hill, the view from all the rooms, the gardens and the decor, it's so much more than what you expect. Breakfast was amazing and the owners make your stay incredible!!! We will go back for sure.

Stunning Venue for Important Events

Amazing Experience!

5 on May 26, 2011

My husband planned a weekend at Chestnut Hill to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. The weekend could not have been more romantic! One of the owners was at the front door to greet us as soon as we arrived. We were shown to our beautiful room after a short tour of the historic mansion. The room was beautifully adorned with luxurious amenities and decor. From the gourmet breakfast to the exquisite wine and cheese platters served each evening, the staff at Chestnut Hill offers a perfect balance of historic country living accompanied by luxurious elegance.


5 on May 26, 2011

Absolutely stunning! Gorgeous and romantic inside and out. Easy to get to. Fabulous food. We arrived very late and they left us a rose petal path to find our room. How romantic! They even held breakfast for us until later so that we could sleep in after arriving so late. They made sure we had cookies when we returned at night. And, did I mention how beautiful and romantic this place is? Wow!

Everything We Hoped For

4.8 on May 23, 2011

We enjoyed staying in the Four Quarters Room this past weekend. Everything about Chestnut Hill is well done. The house is beautifully decorated, the grounds impeccable, and Kathleen and Troy are fabulous and attentive hosts. Everything was organized - including directions printed to restaurants, the winery we toured, and the horse back riding facility that we enjoyed. They know the town well and were able to point us in the direction of a beautiful children's clothing shop, antique stores, and recommend wonderful restaurants to try during our stay. We so appreciated their flexibility with our breakfast time and they even set up a separate table inside of our room for us to enjoy a private dining experience. No detail is left un-done. Truly, this is an outstanding Bed and Breakfast.

Great Weekend Getaway

4.6 on May 18, 2011

We had a fantastic time in Orange, VA. Troy and Kathleen are great hosts, helped us get around the area and took really good care of us. The B&B is fabulous, quiet and easy to get to, great breakfasts. Much recommended, but watch out for the city taxes on restaurants.

A "must" stay !!!

4.0 on May 16, 2011

Chestnut Hill B&B features beautiful grounds and an outstanding home filled with lovely furnishings. The Innkeepers, Kathleen and Troy are knowledgable and caring. Breakfast is catered to your personal taste and complimentary wines and bottled water are provided as well. In summary, you are made to "feel at home" .... truly the art of the Innkeepers.


5 on May 15, 2011

We have stayed at many other bed & breakfasts and this is our new favorite from the food to the hospitality. We will go back for sure! We loved the landscaping and the gardens were great! We LOVED the fire pit on the rear patio too.

Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay

5 on May 15, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Hill. From the moment we arrived, we felt very well taken care of. Troy & Kathleen and their staff went out of their way to make sure that we had a great time and helped us find things to do in the area and told us about great places to have lunch & dinner. Our room ( Emily Macon's Suite) was fantastic and the well-stocked fridge in the room was a nice touch. Highly recommend!

Montpelier Wine Festival

5 on May 15, 2011

We Felt Like Royalty!!

We stayed at Chestnut Hill for our anniversary and could not have asked for a more friendly, elegant and inviting place. Kathleen and Troy were the best hosts. We felt like we were staying with our own family. Our room was outstanding and the bed was amazing! All the common areas were cozy and luxurious. Kathleen and Troy ensured that we had evening snack trays before our dinner reservations and quality bottles of wine to pair. We felt like royalty during our stay. A must have while at Chestnut Hill is the Grand Mariner French Toast. We definitely recommend Chestnut Hill and are even considering the inn for our wedding!

From the moment we walked in the door, Kathleen & Troy went above and beyond to make sure our stay was unforgettable.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay and we will be back!


5 on May 01, 2011

The difference between a good B&B and an exceptional B&B is the people. Troy and Kathleen love what they do. They helped make Erin's wedding an exceptional event. The place is exceptional but the innkeepers make it over the top!

My Daughter's Wedding

5 on May 01, 2011

This was my first experience at a bed & breakfast and all was wonderful! We were here for my daughter's wedding. From our arrival, things went smoothly. The rehearsal and dinner were great.

Elegance with a Smile!

5 on April 16, 2011

Imagine listening to inspiring opera in common areas of an uncommon luxuriously decorated mansion on the National Register of Historic Places while tasting culinary delights artistically designed for the palette. Imagine checking in on WiFi in front of one of your own fireplaces while in the bathroom your spouse is luxuriating in the Jacuzzi in front of his own fireplace. Imagine perfection in every detail. Imagine a host and a hostess who are attentive, interested and clearly eager to attend to your every need with a smile. Unless you visit Chestnut Hill, you will have to imagine it. For me, it is a memory.

Great Stay!!

5 on April 16, 2011

This was my wife and mine's first stay at any bed and breakfast. Apparently we picked the best one to stay at! There is nothing but good things to say about Troy and Kathleen and their home.

Repeat Luxury & Relaxation

5 on April 13, 2011

We went back a second time to this luxurious, yet quaint bed & breakfast and again felt right at home.

I knew when I first spoke with Troy on the phone that this was the B&B where we would stay. Great company, excellent food and an ambience that made us feel as if we were in our own back yard. So much thoughtfulness and attention to detail. They made our anniversary weekend a memorable experience

Chestnut Hill

5 on November 09, 2010

What a beautiful week at a very special place. I only needed somewhere to sleep while I was volunteering at Montpelier, but found a second home at Chestnut Hill. Yes -- the house is beautiful and the breakfasts are delicious but Troy & Kathleen made me feel at home. Their kindness and attentiveness was greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing them again next year!

A very special visit

5 on November 09, 2010

This home was the home of my great grandmother, my grandmother grew up in this home and my mother spent many Christmases visiting her grandmother & grandfather. They have done such a fine job putting this whole home together again and their personalities are a great glue to hold it all in place!

Classy, Gracious - FABULOUS!

5 on November 04, 2010

From the moment we stepped on the porch, we were treated with warm, gracious hospitality. The house is simply stunning, and we loved the story behind it! Meticulous attention to every detail, inside and out. The grounds are gorgeous, filled with class and whimsey. We were shown all the rooms, and had our 'pick'. We chose "Ask Anna", delightful, spacious and cozy, and adjacent to the huge room appointed with everything to satisfy a hungry, thirsty traveller. You will want to take the whole bed home! Simply like sliding into an envelope of pure comfort. Breakfast was better than a much more expensive B&B, fresh, local, and thoughtfully prepared. Who knew a grilled grapefruit was so delicious! Highly recommend - I can see were it would be everything and more for a wedding also. We will return! David and Lauren

We loved it!

5 on October 13, 2010

We were so spoiled after staying here. The house and grounds are gorgeous. The grounds have a grecian temple, patio with pavers and a koi pond. Our hosts so friendly and accomodating. We had the appetizer special, which is really a meal in itself. Troy is such a good good, we were surprised that he hadn't gone to chef school. Our hosts even called us at home before our trip to see whether we had any dietary restrictions or preferences. We were given mapquest instructions to all of our destinations (and back!). We just loved this place, were spoiled by it and want to go back!

Daughters Wedding Day

4.8 on October 12, 2010

My daughter came to me today to thank me and say that her wedding was the most beautiful she has ever seen and she wouldn't change a thing! She was so happy with it that she would want to do it all over again if it were possible! What more does a parent want to hear from her daughter! She went on and on about how much everyone enjoyed the grounds, the atmosphere, access to the house - and she was so excited when she saw couples walking hand in hand and asking others to take their picture in front of the beautiful fountains or flower beds! It was such a romantic setting that it affected everyone! After the wedding she and her husband stayed the night and said that Troy, the owner, just took excellent care of them making sure they had everything they needed! She said in the morning the breakfast was unbelievable and she found that she didn't want to leave! I know that everyone was amazed at the beauty and fantastic atmosphere Chestnut Hill B&B has! I couldn't have done this wedding without the enormous advice and assistance that was given to me by Kathleen and Troy! They truly set the pace for other B&B's to try to match! The care they took, and concern they had for each detail of the day's event, making sure everything ran smooth, would have made you think that this was their own daughter's wedding! It is truly "the spot" for a fantastic wedding - and for that romantic get away! Both my husband and I thank you Kathleen and Troy at Chestnut Hill B&B. You are on our "very short" list of places to return to!

Wonderful stay

5 on October 11, 2010

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was so wonderful! Aside from the beautiful suite and fantastic food, the extra personal touches just completed our perfect weekend away! Their hospitality made us feel relaxed and welcome more so than some friends' homes we've stayed with. We will always remember laughing out by the little koi pond watching the fish eat right out of Kathleen's hand. We will be back!

Second to none

5 on October 11, 2010

Chestnut Hill B&B is full of charm & their attention to detail is second to none. We truly had a memorable experience as the owners make you feel warm & welcome from the moment you arrive.

Extraordinary Hosts

5 on October 11, 2010

We had such a wonderful time here at Chestnut Hill. The entire house is so beautiful and well-maintained and clean. The breakfasts were excellent each of our four mornings, to the point that they just seemed to top each other, and were a great start to each day. Kathleen & Troy were extraordinary hosts. We wanted for nothing. Their hospitality, friendliness, warmth and attention to detail are terrific. From recommendations of restaurants, to directions to the local attractions, to umbrellas for that rainy day, to their help celebrating my wife's birthday with rose petals, cake and champagne, Kathleen & Troy went beyond what I could have expected. It was a great pleasure to meet our hosts, to chat with the other guests and enjoy our luxurious rooms. Thank you for a perfect time and we hope to be back soon.

My favorite B&B

5 on October 11, 2010

This is the best B&B that I have ever stayed at. Our gracious hosts spent so much time with us. Their attention to every aspect of our comfort and preference was so astounding.

Wonderful hospitality!

5 on October 11, 2010

The hospitality was just wonderful. They went above and beyond our expectations. The home is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We truly enjoyed our stay and your outstanding cuisine.

Experience of a lifetime

5 on October 11, 2010

This has been the experience of a lifetime! We have never seen a B&B with such interesting history, top-of-the-line management, beautiful furnishings, magnificent decor -- all with a very warm atmosphere. The constant attentiveness to our needs was above the bar -- way above! The breakfast and evening appetizers were beautifully presented, exceptionally delicious, and interestingly put together. The chef, Troy, has quite an imagination. We loved our room, the downstairs den and living area. We're thankful they had the vision to create the gorgeous Chestnut Hill -- We can't wait to return!


5 on October 03, 2010

Wow! We have had the opportunity to travel to many places in the world, however, we must say that this is the best experience we have ever had! The home is beautiful and they made us feel as if we were at home, but this was much better. The breakfast, home, atmosphere and just their overall pleasant personalities - beaming! We will certainly return and will recommend Chestnut Hill to all of our friends. This was such a warm, beautiful weekend.

What a wonderful experience!

5 on September 29, 2010

We loved getting to spend not only our honeymoon here but our first time at a bed & breakfast. Everything was so above and beyond anything we could have expected. We felt like we were staying with good friends. Troy & Kathleen were wonderful hosts and the food was amazing. Wonderful job on the house as well! We look forward to coming back many times.

Dream wedding

5 on September 28, 2010

Our stay at Chestnut Hill was absolutely magical. Every room at the inn was exquisitely designed with its own individual historic charm. The wedding was more than I ever dreamed for my brother and sister-in-law. Kathleen and Troy, the owners,were fantastic hosts and great company. there is a heaven on earth and it's at Chestnut Hill!

Fairytale wedding!

5 on September 28, 2010

We could not have picked a better place to have our wedding! Chestnut Hill is a beautiful mixture of historic charm and modern amenities. You cannot truly appreciate the beauty of this B&B until you visit in person. Troy and Kathleen were amazing hosts, so much so that we feel like we have become family over the weekend! We love this place and are already talking about coming back for anniversary #1.

Mother of the Bride

5 on September 28, 2010

i wish to thank you all for making my daughter's special day more magical than I ever could have imagined. The accommodations were rich in history and very beautiful. The innkeepers, Kathleen & Troy, were very welcoming and paid such attention to the small details that it was very east to relax and feel confident that everything would run smoothly. I would most definitely recommend this inn for any special occasion or even a weekend to get away. Thank you all, we look forward to staying with you again.

Puts every BNB I have ever been in to shame

5 on September 14, 2010

They went above and beyond my expectations. I really appreciated them helping me celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. We will never forget all of the delicious food (Grand Marnier French toast and fabulous ribs - amazing!), the beautiful home and outstanding service. We truly felt we were at home. We can't wait to come back!

There Are No Words!

5 on August 31, 2010

Seldom have I found a place to live up to its marketing promotion, however Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast exceeded my expectations. Kathleen and Troy have done a fabulous job transforming this residential property into a luxurious "home away from home" premier destination. The food, luxurious surroundings, premium decor and atmosphere has you wanting more. I'll definitely be back!


5 on August 25, 2010

What a treat! We have never been to a B&B and we didn't know what to expect. What a surprise! The house is gorgeous and they made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We loved the outdoor patio as well. The food and entertainment were wonderful. We will be back!


5 on August 19, 2010

The rooms were wonderful and the food was amazing. The fully stocked bar downstairs and the extra appetizers were above and beyond! We will definitely recommend Chestnut Hill to friends and family.

The Coolest Time

5 on August 16, 2010

We had the coolest time this weekend. As soon as I saw Chestnut Hill on the B&Bonline website, I knew this is where we wnated to stay and exactly what we were looking for, even without the hot air balloon ride! (Which was awesome!!) The accommodations are top notch, and your hospitality is what made the weekend truly enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable. You both went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect weekend and made it clear our satisfaction and enjoyment were your top priority! I was especially impressed when you called in advance to check on our eating/drinking preferences so you could go out and purchase exactly what we wanted! That is a first for us when making reservations at a B&B - so thank you! We could not have asked for anything more - and were pleasantly surprised by the extra attention from you. In addition, your attention to every little detail in making your inn cozy, comfortable and accommodating did not go unnoticed. All in all, one of the best getaway weekends we've had - thank you for making it so pleasant.


5 on August 16, 2010

This was our 1st experience at a B&B and we were so pleased! Troy and Kathleen are generous, gracious, vivacious and welcoming hosts. We felt so at home and so relaxed. The home is exquisitely decorated and lovely to experience! We enjoyed every moment, every meal and every opportunity to chat with Troy and Kathleen. We recommend CH to all and we will be back!

Exceeded Our Expectations

5 on August 12, 2010

Thank you for the wonderful experience and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Suggestions given for meals and activities were fantastic! You all also were able to cater to our dietary preferences in a fabulous way. The room was gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. Thank you for an experience that we will not forget!

Our 20th Anniversary

5 on August 10, 2010

Thank you so much for making it possible for my husband and I to celebrate our 20th anniversary in an absolutely phenomenal setting. Your offer through our Barter association came at the exact time when I was wonderful if we were going to be able to afford to do anything, and I truly believe that it was not a 'coincidence'! You both have gone above and beyond to help me surprise Rob everyday, and you were so generous to allow our friends to visit and surprise me! Three nights turned out to be the perfect amount of time to be spoiled with your fabulous meals, luxurious room and perfect suggestions on how to spend our days. Thank you for sharing your lovely home, gracious hospitality and expertise in the kitchen. You have truly been a blessing to us on our anniversary and we will definitely tell everyone we know that they must come visit Chestnut Hill!

Wonderful Experience

This truly must be what royalty feels like. We had the most spectacular stay at Chestnut Hill that we are going to recommend it to everyone and definitely come back. Troy and Kathleen go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome and happy. They are two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Lastly, the beds were an absolute standout to this Inn. We felt that we were sleeping on little pillows of clouds and did not want to get up and leave the bed! We will always remember this fabulous weekend with our friends.

On a Scale of 1-5, It's a 10 PLUS!

5 on July 22, 2010

Most amazing B&B, Kathleen and Troy are totally awesome. We loved everything about this B&B it is top notch and first class all the way, but yet we felt very welcome and at home during our stay. They assisted us with everything from directions to local wineries, to dinner reservations and our hot air balloon ride. The worst part about the trip was having to leave. We LOVED it and will definitely be back!

Outstanding Service!

We had never been to a bed and breakfast before, and we came to Chestnut Hill for our anniversary. It completely and totally exceeded any expectations we had.

Fantastic Wedding Weekend!

We could not have picked a more amazing place to get married. Troy and Kathleen are pheonmenal hosts and went above and beyond to make every detail perfect.

5 on May 21, 2010

We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived! All the rooms are decorated so beautifully - we were absolutely awestruck. Troy and Kathleen, you made us feel so welcome - like old friends who have come to visit! Our cocktail hour was fabulous - plenty of wine, cheeses, and the shrimp was delicious. Our room was so cozy, and a treat to come back from dinner and have our bed turned down. All of the accommodations were outstanding, from the towels, candles, tub and firelaces and most especially - the sheets and bedding - aahhh! Breakfast was superb - all the fresh fruit was perfect; loved the asparagus w/ lemon zest and the French toast was a special treat. We will be raving about Chestnut Hill Inn for years to come and will certainly plan to return!

The Gorgeous Old Face of Chestnut Hill

Realizing What It's All About.

5 on May 06, 2010

We came to Chestnut Hill B&B for some tiem away and to reflect on the year we had been through. A life-threatening illness can make you see every step you take in a different light. From the call to make our reservation, I knew you both had to be special people. We can never thank you enough for all your efforts to have the room ready for us, even with all of the obstacles that fell your way. When we saw the room with the PINK roses, balloons and champagne, tears came to my eyes and we knew this was a beautiful place. We have many special memories of our weekend here and look forward to visiting again. You both have a special talent for all you do and we can't thank you enough.

We Couldn't Have Asked For a More Wonderful Stay

5 on May 06, 2010

We are so glad to have met you both and to have stayed as a guest in your beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful stay. You both are very gracious and great hosts. We hope to stay again very soon.

The Texans Come to Chestnut Hill

5 on May 06, 2010

My daughter and I were here for a Montpelier archeology excavation for six nights. Eah morning, Troy and Kathleen greeted us warmly, even though it was 6AM, with a gourmet breakfast. Each evening after a long day, we were welcomed back to the porch and they spent time with us discussing finds at Montpellier. They spoke with us like family and seemed genuinely interested. The breakfasts were delicious and the evening appetizers a delightful treat. Our favorite news channel was even on for us in the bar area. We had a very enjoyable visit and look forward to coming again.

Our First B&B But Not Our Last!

5 on May 06, 2010

This was our first experience at a B&B, but it will not be our last. Every aspect of our stay has been absolutely wonderful. Your thoughtfulness, and attention to detail has been outstanding. Never has breakfast tasted so good. The inn itself is beautiful, warm and exceptionally clean and sunny. We will definitely return and recommend you highly to our friends.

Great Choice

5 on May 06, 2010

With all the Bed and Breakfasts to choose from, we were thrilled to have made this choice! Troy and Kathleen are warm and friendly, making us feel right at home. They are very accommodating, taking time to give us information of places to visit on our trip. The food and accommodation are outstanding! A plus for us were the heavy hors d'eouvres which served as our evening meal at the end of a busy day. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to friends and family.


5 on May 02, 2010

This was by far, the best experience my wife and I have ever had. Troy and Kathleen were excellent hosts and made us feel at home instantly. There isn't one negative I can say about our stay. Go there! You won't regret it!

Our Fairytale Wedding Night

5 on April 28, 2010

This was our first bed and breakfast experience. We came here on our wedding night. When we arrived, we were greeted by Kathleen and Troy, and immediately felt "at home". They had made a path of rose petals all the way to our room, on the bed, and into the bathroom. They had even begun running a jacuzzi bath for us. It was absolutely perfect. Kathleen and Troy went above and beyond in everything they did during our stay. We were completely amazed with the quality of the house itself, the "at home" feel, and of course, the food. We could not imagine a more perfect place. We will recommend Chestnut Hill to everyone, and we look forward to returning soon. Thank you for making our wedding night and weekend a perfect "fairytale".

5 on April 07, 2010

The house is beautiful, the hospitality superb, and the food is excellent. A perfect weekend!


5 on March 30, 2010

Thank you for such a wonderful weekend! Everything about our stay was perfect... The incredible breakfasts, the wine and cheese in the afternoon, the amazing accomodations - luxurious bed linens, towels, etc... The house itself is so warm, cozy and inviting, as are the grounds and setting so high in the hills. But, above all this, it is your warmth and caring personalized service that exceeded all other factors. You both made us feel so at home and welcomed during our brief visit with you that we look forward to coming back again as soon as possible. We will certainly let our good friends know what a great place Chestnut Hill is and urge them to experience it for themselves ASAP!


5 on March 30, 2010

Chestnut Hill is absolute perfection from the food, beds and atmosphere. We truly felt at home in the beautiful B&B, thanks to a great host and hostess who anticipated our every want and need.

Outstanding Birthday Weekend

5 on March 30, 2010

Outstanding weekend getaway for my husband's birthday. Kathleen and Troy took care of everything. My husband was very pleased and surprised; everywhere we went he was wished a 'Happy Birthday'. The horseback riding was great, followed by an in-room massage. We couldn't have asked for more. Great hosts that make you feel at home. Will be back!

We are back again!

5 on March 30, 2010

We loved our first stay so much we came back to celebrate our anniversary. We rave about this place to many. We often refer to it as bed, breakfast, dinner lodging because the "happy hour" hors d'ouevres are impeccable! The house is beautiful nad the innkeepers really are hosts with the mosts! We will definitely be back again.

We Can't Wait to Come Back

5 on March 17, 2010

A wonderful B&B. Beautiful home, great service, and a fantastic breakfast!

Great Experience

5 on March 17, 2010

From our arrival on, we had a great experience. Kathleen and Troy are everything you would hope for in hosts. The house is beautiful and has a great story to tell. The food was very good, both breakfast and appetizers in the evening. I would recommend Chestnut Hill to anyone looking to get away and experience truthful hospitality.

First Class

5 on March 17, 2010

This is the most fantastic Bed & Breakfast in which I have stayed. There is no comparison to those in Europe. This was definitely a first class/premium experience to rival any five-star resort. The best part is that one can relax and enjoy the many sitting rooms filled with exquisite decor. After a long day driving and touring, we were welcomed with a bottle of Cabernet and a pitcher of homemade Margaritas. And then, the most fabulous fajitas filled with shrimp, filet mignon and chicken. In addition, there was marvelous brie topped with raspberry, in a phylo crust plus a chocolate torte! The wonderful German lady who decorated this splendid house has a truly creative, wonderful style. Every space is beautifully renovated and eye catching, but in keeping with the 100 plus year old house, built in 1860. To reach Chestnut Hill from Monticello, one drives through the magnificent Virginia countryside with beautiful horse and cattle farms. It would also make a wonderful respite from all the hectic activities and crowds at U.V.A. Kathleen is a warm-spirited hostess who is devoted to making your stay memorable.

For the 'Falling out of Love' Couple

5 on March 09, 2010

The amazingly charming Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast is only six months old, but you’d never know it. In what is an amazing story, innkeepers Troy and Kathleen Ayers purchased the property for one dollar after no other bidders showed up to the auction of the now restored house. This little hideaway in Orange, VA took me by total surprise when I was ushered into my room on the top floor named “The Bridal Suite." I didn’t know what to expect, but when Troy opened the door, I just about burst into tears. The room was decorated with a delicate bridal color scheme of sexy champagnes and traditional oak fixtures. The tub, which is big enough for two, is a lavish claw-foot tub with a separate glass enclosed shower. I definitely recommend this suite for the couple that needs a boost in the bedroom. After a romp in those quality triple-sheeted cotton sheets and deluxe down pillows, Troy and Kathleen will treat you to a gourmet breakfast of something like a sunrise bake with sausage, egg, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella. In the quiet elegance of Chestnut Hill, frivolous arguments practically melt away. You can expect to re-ignite even the coldest fire. Run, don’t walk. On my flight back, I thought to myself, "Virginia is definitely for lovers."


5 on March 04, 2010

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast and I must say we will be back here again and again. The accomodations are breathtaking and Kathleen was such a sweetheart. The food was truly A-W-E-Some!! Thank-you for such an amazing weekend.

Great place, great people, proper seclusion

Friendly people, great service and a lot of fun. Good wine and alcohol selection and great rooms.

Wonderful Food and Beautiful Amenities

5 on February 17, 2010

Thank you for a pleasant stay. Wonderful food and beautiful amenities! Easy access to wineries and interstates. Thanks for the dinner recommendation and reservations. I've enjoyed hanging out at the bar and soaking in the whirlpool tub! Nightly apps were above and beyond as well as the fresh squeezed orange juice. Would definitely stay here again!

Truly Outstanding!

5 on February 17, 2010

Thank you so much for the fabulous hospitality! Everything was truly incredible. The room was comfortable beyond imagination, and the house is beautiful! The appetizers for happy hour were great and breakfast was awesome. I can't say enough about how wonderful, luxurious and welcoming it was here. Kathleen was an ideal hostess. She made sure that all of our needs were taken care of, adn she was freindly and open as well. I can't wait to come back!

It's an amazing story!

5 on February 06, 2010

From the first moment we arrived, we were greeted with a smile and a glass of wine (which was very welcomed after a long drive !). The hosts were extremely attentive and helpful. Each morning breakfast was delicious and beautiful to look at. Every evening during their social hour they served Southern recipes for dips and desserts with a great selection of local wines. We were able to enjoy these goodies in the bar listen to personal favorite... Jazz. The room we stayed in was "over the top" and very comfortable. Everything was extremely clean and the location was perfect. Be sure to have the hosts take you on the complete tour of the entire house to hear how it was saved and restored. It's an amazing story! We feel very lucky to have found this gem for our 3-day trip.

Our New Annual Event

5 on January 28, 2010

What a treat! This B&B is an absolute gem. Modern luxury combined with the charm and essense of a bygone era. Kathleen and Troy treated us like nobility! Food was exquisite - appetizers and breakfast Yum! We will definitely return.


5 on January 28, 2010

We truly enjoyed our special time with you! Your hospitality was top notch, your inn amazingly beautiful, and your food was so delicious! We want to make this an annual event - you made us feel so at home. Thank you so much!!!

Relaxing Getaway!

5 on December 30, 2009

This B+B more than exceeded our expectations! The minute we arrived, we felt like we knew our hosts for years. With the perfect blend of classic decor and modern comforts, this B+B is the new direction of southern hospitality. We recommend this relaxing retreat for anyone looking to getaway.

May be the best in 35 years of global travels!!!!

5 on December 08, 2009

Rooms are outstanding!......very luxurious........ service is outstanding! Extremely cleanand neat. Best bed and sheets of any B&B we have evered stayed....and we stay in 4 or more ever year all over the world. Close to Montpilier (less than 5 minute drive). May seem expesive at first, but great value for the price considering the quality, food abundance and all that is included - especially considering other prices of rooms in the area. Great breakfast provided. Good restaurants nearby . Lastly, the hosts were 1st class all the way... excellent advice for what to do in the area- even if you only have a limited amount of time! We highly recommend this place!!!

Our first time

5 on November 18, 2009

Absolutely beautiful! I think I hit the jackpot when I found this place! Coming here has definitely raised the bar on standards & expectations for a B&B. The place is charming and comfortable. I appreciate the attention to detail from the hospitality to the freshly squeezed orange juice! The bar/lounge room area was definitely a plus!

Outstanding B&B from any point of view

5 on November 18, 2009

Location, decor, comfort, hospitality & warmth of hosts; everything is done in excellent taste. Elegance, luxury, kindness combine to make a perfect vacation getaway.

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

4.6 on November 06, 2009

Chestnut Hill is situated on a bluff overlooking the town of Orange, VA. Just driving up to the beautifully illuminated mansion made us feel excited to be there! The hostess/owner was delightful, obviously loving the inn, the guests, the preparation and service of the food. This was a totally enriching experience!

Outstanding Hospitality

4.8 on November 06, 2009

Thanks for the outstanding hospitality! We loved the story of the house and how you have fixed it up is beautiful! The sheets, the soap of blood oranges is wonderful! Fabulous breakfast and vegetable platter was a great tough. Thanks for everything!

Best B&B bar none

5 on November 06, 2009

Chestnut Hill is the nicest B&B we have ever had the privilege of staying at. The food was great and the hospitality even better. The bridal suite was very luxurious and every need was met. We will definitely be staying here in the future.

A wonderful experience

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 20, 2009

This was the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. We received the most hospitable service. Katherine and Troy went out of their way to provide us with the finest breakfasts and appetizers. The Grand Marnier French toast was unbelievable.

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 15, 2009

We cannot thank you enough for making our 25th anniversary one we will never forget. Your charming B&B exceeded all of our expectations and then some! The room was gorgeous, the food delicious, and your hospitality exceptional. We were blessed to be your guests and we look forward to visiting again.

A Gem of a B&B

5 on October 15, 2009

This was our first visit to the area. We are delighted that we discovered this gem of a B&B. The rooms and service were impeccable. The food and hospitality were superb. This is the first bed and breakfast we have seen with a family room/home theater to enjoy. We hope to return soon. Beautiful area, wonderful home. Thank you for a great vacation.


5 on October 15, 2009

My husband and I have enjoyed numerous bed and breakfast inns on the east and west coasts of the U.S. and British Isles over the past 25 years. Chestnut Hill definitely ranks among the best of them! From the first phone contact to the last bite of Grand Mariner French Toast, Troy & Kathleen's hospitality has been phenomenal! The impeccable restoration of Chestnut Hill beautifully combines the elegance of a by-gone era with modern day charm and conveniences and our first stay here puts this remarkable B&B on our "must return" list! Thank you both Troy & Kathleen for an exceptional getaway weekend. See you next time!

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 15, 2009

Absolutely a delight! This is by far the best B&B I've stayed in.

A new coincidence for Kate's coincidence!

5 on October 15, 2009

We are so thankful that there was room at the inn. It probably isn't a coincidence that we've ended up here. The food and service was the best, and the stories about the house are charming. We intend to return often to visit our new friends, Kate and Troy.

Thank you

5 on October 15, 2009

This was such a great second anniversary. We feel very blessed that you had availability and that we extended for three nights. We definitely couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! Everything has been great! Thank you!

Rating 10!

5 on October 15, 2009

Best breakfast, best beds, best linens, and best innkeepers! Hospitality and gourmet food abounds in the peaceful haven! We will recommend it to our friends and definitely return!

Warmth & hospitality

5 on October 15, 2009

Wow! What can we say. You've made our first bed and breakfast experience wonderful. It will be difficult for any other to match your warmth and hospitality. Your home was cozy and beautiful, and your company awesome. We hope to see you again soon.

Everything a B&B should be!

5 on October 15, 2009

This new B&B is everything a B&B should be -- hosts are engaging, interesting and anxious to make your visit perfect. Food delicious and accommodations lovely -- elegant yet comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Elegance on the Hill

5 on October 12, 2009

This property sits elegantly on the top of the hill. It's warmth and elegance is evident the moment you enter. The innkeepersare made to run a B&B, exhibiting the perfect personality to run an inn. We loved every minute we were there, and certainly plan to return many times.

What a delight!

5 on October 08, 2009

We found this B&B because it was listed as inn of the month on What a delight! The owner bent over backwards to accommodate us and our schedule. The food was fantastic -- beautiful rooms and the best shower I've ever seen. Splurge for the Alexander Dailey Room -- well worth it. Would definitely recommend this great B&B.

We knew we were coming somewhere special

5 on October 08, 2009

Tryo & Kathleen -- you have the finest B&B we have ever stayed at. We knew we were coming somewhere special when, before our visit, you asked us if er had any special requests/needs that you could accommodate. Once we arrived, the back road directions and meal you had ready for us for the concert we were to attend made us feel so pampered -- just what we had been looking for in our weekend getaway. The incredible breakfasts, fresh-squeezed orange juice, evening wine, and desserts waiting in our room were all impeccable and more than we had hoped for. Thank you for your graciousness during our stay -- we will most certainly be back, friends in tow.

Beyond expectations!

5 on October 08, 2009

Incredible! We cannot say enough! We have stayed in numerous B&Bs and Chestnut Hill is by far the most hospitable and gracious! The accommodations are luxurious, the food is on par of a 5-star restaurant and the hosts are our new best friends. Troy and Kathleen are worth the stay alone! Troy gave wonderful advice on what to do in the area, and also included customized driving directions. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will be talking about it for years to come! We will be back and we'll be bringing friends!

Pleasantly surprised

5 on October 08, 2009

We were pleasantly surprised at how gracious you were as hosts in this most gorgeous house. The house is indescribably beautiful. The moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and felt like we lived there permanently. Troy & kathleen went out of their way to accommodate us. Our room was fabulous. We had a terrific time and will definitely come back!

Absolutely fabulous

5 on October 07, 2009

The hospitality was beyond expectations. in gettinf to and from all destinations, Troy and kathleen were guiding us all the way. Our own GPS! Breakfast was exquisite and made us realize how sorry we were to have missed the appetizers the night before. The room was lovely and so comfrotable. We can't wait to come back and will tell all our friends!

A Beautifully Delicious Place to Stay!

5 on October 04, 2009



5 on October 02, 2009

We frequently stay in bed and breakfasts and Chestnut Hill is by far the most spectacular we have stayed in. It is beautifully refurbished. The food is fantastic. Troy & Kathleen are gracious hosts who make sure you are totally pampered. We will be back with friends and family.

Service outstanding at Chestnut Hill

5 on October 02, 2009

Troy & Kathleen Ayers have significantly raised the bar for service at a B&B for 21 yrs visited in the U.S. and Europe! The graciousness of our hosts is superb! The beautifully decorated rooms and atmosphere created at Chestnut Hill makes visitors not want to leave. We were blown away and words just can't describe the service, food, and hospitality. We will be back and absolutely fell like Chestnut Hills is our home away from home!

Our new monthly retreat!

5 on October 02, 2009

Rod and I wanted to spend our one year anniversary at a nice, quiet location. Chestnull Hill totally exceeded our expectations. Troy and kathleen were the best hosts, cooks, etc. we have ever met. As soon as we drove up, Kathleen met us outside as if she already knew us. We felt the love as soon as we hit the front door. The house was so warmning, beautiful and full of love. From the time we started our vacation until the day we left, our every need was met. We will make Chestnut Hill a monthly retreat.

Southern hospitality

5 on September 23, 2009

This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast -- We must tell you that you have spoiled us forever! We are certain that you have set the bar for innkeeps that few will be able to compare. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, the food spectacular and the ambience warm and caring. All of these comforts were out-done by kathleen and Troy's hospitality and caring nature. We are blessed to have them not just as innkeepers at a fantastic, cozy inn, we feel we have two friends that have blessed our life. We came to Chestnut Hill to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary... we will be back to celebrate many more. Thank you both and God bless! Wow! Chestnut hill is a beautiful place run by two beautiful people, Kathleen and Troy. Your warm, Southern hospitality made us feel so welcome and exceeded all our expectations. This place of breauty is a foretaste of heaven. Chestnut Hill is the creme de la creme of inns! Thank you!

A wonderful anniversary

5 on September 23, 2009

Thank you so very much for making our anniversary so special! Your genuine hospitality exceeded our expectations. The combination of Chestnut Hill's old world elegance married with a modern twist plus all of the conveniences have set the bar for all other B&B stays. We thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous appetizers, wine, creme brulee and gourmet breakfast. This home's beauty and the serene grounds are outstanding. We are leaving feeling enriched by your friendship and kindness. Best of all, we are looking forward to a return stay!

Wonderful hospitality and great food

5 on September 23, 2009

After a day of tours at the local wineries, we had the fortune of staying in the Emily Macon Bridal Suite. Kathleen and Troy were gracious hosts. They treated us to wonton scallops when we arrived, arranged our reservations at a nearby restaurant and welcomed us back with creme brulee that night. Breakfast was wonderful with Grand Marnier French toast. When we left to go horseback riding they packed brownies for us to go. The room was very nice, bath tub was huge! Kathleen and Troy were very accommodating about dietary needs/restrictions.

Mini Vacation

4.8 on September 23, 2009

Kevin and I had such a wonderful mini-vacation with you. Your home is so beautiful and you both are so welcoming. We really felt at home here! The food was amazing (and plentiful). Most of all you both were so generous with your time -- telling us the fascinating history of the house and always being ready with a great recommendation for food or sight seeing. it was also a great treat for us to be able to bring our dog, Porter, with us. Porter enjoyed his stay as much as we did! We will definitely be back and will tell all of our friends.

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on September 23, 2009

You guys were wonderfully hospitable! We came just to relax but were pampered and entertained massively as well. Breakfast was delicious and although I didn't expect any "special dirt" to be catered to, you were so sweet to offer food I just loved! The Bridal Suite was beautiful and luxurious. The bed was so unbelievably soft and comfortable and the tub was so unbelievably soft and comfortable and the tub was just amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the home's history and decor and met very lovelyguests during our brief respite from the kids. We would absolutely recommendy your inn to others and look forward to coming back again.

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

5 on September 23, 2009

Our most memorable Anniversary.

Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast

4.8 on September 22, 2009

Kathleen & Troy are such gracious hosts! There was so much attention to detail and such great personal attention. The food, especially the carrot cake, was fantastic! Even though our trip was short, it was such a relaxing stay and friendly atmosphere. We will be sending our friends this way for unparalelled Southern hospitality!

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

5 on September 22, 2009

Your house, the amenities and your warm hospitality have made our anniversary weekend hard to top -- but we hope to come back next year to try! Thank you so much for everything.

Our totally awesome B&B adventure

5 on September 11, 2009

There are many B&Bs, then there is the Chestnut Hills B&B, clearly a step above. Troy & kathleen were amazing, attentive to our every want, and consistently going above & beyond to ensure our stay would be second to none. The home, bedrooms, property, and amenities will be missed the minute we leave, but we shall return! Thank you for an awesome perfect adventure!

A gem in Orange, VA!

5 on September 10, 2009

This is a beautiful home with amazing touches. You both are incredible hosts! The food was fantastic! Thank you so much for your hospitality. You made us feel so very at home and fostered a sense of connection between all the guests. We will certainly tell others about our wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.

Absolutely Beautiful!

5 on September 10, 2009

Thank you so much for such and enjoyable stay. Everything was absolutely fantastic, from the delicious food to the wonderful conversation. Your home is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed every moment and look forward to visiting again very soon!

Heaven on the Hill

5 on September 08, 2009

If I could afford to spend every weekend there I would. The owners were amazing. The rooms gorgeous!!! The food was incredible. We had the Alexander Dailey Suite. In my opinion the best room in place. We rate our stay 10 stars. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

We'll be back for the sky diving!

5 on September 03, 2009

Troy & Kathleen, thank you both for a wonderful time. We have never stayed anywhere that we enjoyed the company as much as we have at Chestnut Hill. While the inn itself is absolutely beautiful, with all the "perks" we look for, it has been the two of you that made our stay such an engaging and memorable visit. Thank you again for the wonderful conversations and attention to detail. We look forward to seeing the two of you again...soon!


5 on September 03, 2009

We were looking for a nice one night getaway and you far exceeded our expectations! The house is wonderful, the bridal suite was fantastic, and the hospitality was fabulous. You both went above and beyond the norm and we are truly grateful. Thank you for a memorable getaway and we can't wait to come back.

Absolutely gorgeous

5 on September 03, 2009

The accommodations, food, and hospitality were way above our expectations. We has a great time relaxing and eating all the delicious food you prepared. The house is absolutely gorgeous with no place left undecorated. Thank you for your kind and generous hospitality. We had a great time and hope to come back in the future.

A Shining Star In The B & B Industry!

5 on September 02, 2009

We recently had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast. Husband and wife innkeepers Kathleen and Troy could do no wrong! The house is beyond lovely. The grounds are picture perfect. The food is mega star quality, both in taste and presentation. You never have to ask for anything-I believe they can read minds! They must be able to read each others because their individual talents come together seamlessly to provide one incredible experience. Troy’s background is real estate but we think he must be moonlighting with a Food Network chef. We literally scraped our plates clean at every meal! He also stepped in and acted as our tour guide, mapping routes for us and suggesting places to explore and dine. We arrived later than expected the first night and were quickly offered dinner. While they indicated it was no trouble because they were cooking for themselves anyhow, it was again lovely, delicious, beautifully presented and a welcome relief that we didn’t have to search for a restaurant after a long ride. Upon arrival, Kathleen offered us a much appreciated glass of wine from their extensive selection and a tour of the house to get us acquainted and wind down after a long day. Kathleen and Troy have been official innkeepers for just a few months, but perhaps they should consider writing a book or training inn keeper wannabes on how to run an inn the right way! There can be no question that they have beautifully and lovingly restored a very historic house. More importantly, they have turned it into a warm and welcoming home. In the end, it was their kindness and attention to detail that really made our stay spectacular. They are friendly and very down to earth people who love people and love to make those people smile. You quickly feel like you’re visiting old friends. And you can’t wait to visit again…and again. Bravo! Our highest recommendation!

A sip of cool water on a hot day

5 on August 25, 2009

The ebbs and flows of lifepresent challenges and opportunities along our personal journeys. For us, 2009 presented a period of challenges with work, health and general economic stresses that had prevented us from our normal carefree R&R routine. Finding your inn when we did was nothing more than fate & destiny... You were just what the doctor ordered to help bring calm and balance back into our lives. You afforded us beautiful surroundings, bountiful amounts of great food, and most importantly, new friendships that we will value into the future. Although we were here for a short visit, you offered us comfort like a sip of cool water on a hot day... Thank you! We look forward to our next visit.

A magical getaway for two

5 on August 25, 2009

The word "magical" comes first to my mind to describe the two-day getaway for my wife and me. Of all the B&Bs we've stayed at over the years, Chestnut Hill is the finest! The breakfast was world-class and plentiful! The inn is rich in history and the story of the renovation was fascinating. You really spoiled us and catered to our every whim and gave us memories we'll cherish forever! What a wonderful way to spend our anniversary!

Best kept secret in Virginia

5 on August 25, 2009

Thank you for a wonderful visit. The food and company was great. After seeing the "before"pictures, it's a pleasure to see the results of all of your hard work. The attention to detail is amazing. One of, if not the best kept secrets in Virginia. We look forward to a return visit.

Better than the Savoy in London, the Sofitel in New York

5 on August 18, 2009

My wife and I have stayed in some of the world's most luxurious hotels, including the iconic Savoy in London and the cushy Sofitel in Manhattan. None can compare with the lavish luxury, attention to detail and customer service as the Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast. Yes, I paid a little more than the average B&B to celebrate our 24th wedding celebration, but consider what I got: champagne and chocolates in the room, a free upgrade to the Bridal Suite, Beef Wellington for “hor dourves,” Kathleen's amazing skydiving video (optional) and Troy's passion for cooking and pleasing his guests (he called me three times -- including one call when my cell phone went off in church -- to make sure everything would be perfect before we arrived). I give Chestnut Hill five stars for value. It is well worth the price! I would book now before the word gets out about this sparkling new diamond on Virginia's B&B landscape. We stayed only one night (Sunday) but what a memorable stay it was. p.s. Thank you for the inspiration as I start my own communications company, Mark O’Keefe Communications. If you can do it so well, maybe I can too! Mark O’Keefe Washington, d.c.

Stop looking- Start Booking!

5 on August 18, 2009

Wow- I stopped here because another place was booked that a friend had recommended. I'm so glad I did! Now I'm forcing my friend to come back with me to Chestnut Hill because he can't believe I'm so happy with my stay and says I'm exaggerating. Both Kathleen and Troy made my evening a relaxing treat from bringing me my favorite beer that they stocked just for me, to preparing me a home cooked meal that was better than most 5 star restaurants I've dined with! I didn't get up from the most comfortable couch in the world since they offered to bring it to me in the pub/basement lounge with the surround sound and huge Tv. I came to find out later when I went to bed that there was a huge Plasma Tv in my room too (inside a cabinet, something you don't often find in historic B&B's.) The room was breathtaking and elegantly decorated and since everything is brand new, I slept like a rock in total comfort. You've gotta try these sheets too! They felt like satin or silk, but were actually the silkiest cotton you'll ever find. Even the bathtub was fantastic! Jeez, am I excited about writing this or what? I don't know how to say it other than: you need look no farther for the finest B&B in Virginia, Chestnut Hill is it! If they are booked already for your vacation getaway-- then reschedule your getaway for when Troy and Kathleen have vacancy! They have at least 5 to 6 rooms though, so you should be fine. It's really that good and worth the wait-- Chestnut Hill, Orange, VA is Five Stars!!

Best anniversary yet!

Thank you for such a breathtaking experience! I must admit, I was quite nervous in the beginning. Being as though I've never stayed at a B&B, I had no idea what to expect...but your hospitality and attention to every little detail has totally blown us away! Thank you for treating Toby as if he were your own- he may have had an even better time than us! And the food- the food was awesome! We'll be patiently awaiting the cookbook to add to the shelves! Until next time...

simply the best B&B

simply the best B&B my wife and I ever stayed at! Five stars!

David's 50th Birthday party

Kathleen and Troy, I want to personally thank you for your exceptional hospitality and graciousness yesterday at David's party. You have an amazing home and I had a blast meeting you and everyone else. Thanks again! Ciao, Bernie and Tanya

Great getaway

truly remarkable, Kathleen and Troy have perfected the hospitality field. Every room is amazing and gives the much needed relaxing feel of old world roots with modern charm. The food is perfected and words cannot describe how great our stay was. We will come back for sure in the future!

A Wonderful Stay...

5 on July 29, 2009

We had a wonderful stay! What a beautiful and meticulous renovation you did on the house. Thank you for going out of your way to meet our dietary requirements. The food was wonderful and we especially enjoyed the appetizers and Margaritas. We had a blast getting to know you and we are sure your B&B will be the envy of Orange. Thanks again for everything, And we look forward to seing you again soon.

Above and beyond expectations

5 on July 25, 2009

What you have done here at Chestnut Hill is truly remarkable. The marraige of Old World charm and new world comforts and conveniences is perfect. The Ritz Carlton was always the standard we measured against - but now you've raised the bar. The beauty and elegance of the decore is breathtaking and the comfort and luxury of the suites are unmatched. Your out-of-this-world breakfast was unique and delicious. Our day trip to the skyline drive and expecially Luray Caverns was an unexpected surprise of natural beauty. Also our trip back into history at the Montecello was a must see. But above all those things being able to spend time with two of the sweetest people in the world is what we'll cherish most

All girls weekend

Celebrating an exquisite woman at exquisite Chestnut Hill

5 on July 15, 2009

Chestnut Hill is a beautiful home that should be experienced by all. Kathleen and Troy provided a warm hospitable place to celebrate our wonderful friend's birthday. Twelve women enjoyed a fabulous time and wanted for nothing. An absolutely exquisite experience.

Celebrating Maggie-60 years old

5 on July 15, 2009

Like visiting long time friends. The innkeepers, Troy and Kathleen, were the most hospitable, caring people. The inn itself is stunning-words can barely express the beauty and detail of every room. You truly need to experience Chestnut Hill yourself!

Amazing inn

5 on June 30, 2009

The house is stunning. the innkeepers are wonderful, the food was amazing, and we couldn't be more comfortable. We will recommend Chestnut hill to all friends and family.


5 on June 30, 2009

House is beautiful and comfortable. Beds were so comfortable and breakfast delicious. The host did everything they could to make our stay perfect. One, if not the best, B&B we've ever stayed at.

Simply wonderful

5 on June 30, 2009

We came to Chestnut Hill for our anniversary; seeking some getaway time from work and family. We were pampered and treated like kings. Our host never stopped providing the best of service, comfort, dining, or smiles. Highly recommended and we would love to repeat the experience!

Incredible B&B

5 on June 29, 2009

This is the best place my wife and I have ever stayed. The only places that could come close cost three or four times as much, and I would still prefer this B&B because of the personal touch provided by Kathleen.

will recommend to everyone!

5 on June 19, 2009

Great food, great location, kind people. Outstanding!!


5 on June 19, 2009

We have stayed at many B&B's and this was superior! The inn was decorated superbly...nothing was overlooked. Kathleen, the innkeeper, was delightful and attentive...We will be back!

Best wedding EVER, thanks to your hospitality

5 on June 17, 2009

Thank you for opening your house for us. Words fail me to describe what a joy it has been for us to enjoy your hospitality. You have a beautiful home with unmatched beauty. Each part is unique. Our “suite” is so comfortable. For us, it has been like our second honeymoon! The bedroom is very comfortable with all the amenities one can dream of. The toiletries are so special. Thank you for the delicious breakfast. We particularly enjoyed the Grand Manier French Toast. It was a special visit for us to witness the celebration of wedding of my student. You were so generous to offer your lower level bar & social area for the post-wedding get together. Your constant supply of fresh spring rolls added to the enjoyment of all. We hope we can return back another time. Arun, SUNY at Buffalo, New York - May 24, 2009

Our Honeymoon Night

5 on June 17, 2009

Our experience was wonderful. Both of you made our special weekend memorable. Your hospitality is remarkable. The food was excellent and the house is just fabulous! Thanks for being super cool Kathleen & Troy! I would recommend Chestnut Hill Inn to everyone and we definitely will be back. Thank you so much! Lucas & Bridgette May 24, 2009

We didn't want to leave...

5 on June 11, 2009

Before we even arrived, we were confident that we were going to have a wonderful weekend. Just based on the telephone conversations and e-mails we knew that they were all about customer service. We were provided with so much helpful information and ideas of what to do while we were in the area. The house was amazing with so much thought put into the details. Breakfast was wonderful and we loved the Asian spring roll appetizers. Our room was beautifully decorated and exactly as the picture described. We will definitely be back!

What a weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 on June 10, 2009

Your hospitality was amazing. Your food was unbelievable. The wine, oh the wine, well, that was just fun. But most importantly, and this I want to really stress, the friendship the two of you showed my wife and I was the best. We walked into your house knowing you only through a few e-mails and a phone conversations. We left with sadness as we were saying goodbye to new found friends. And all of that happened in literally 36 hours. I have told everyone about your place. My statement to them is the following. “I have been blessed to travel all over the world and stay at amazing hotels, eat great food and have experiences that a person from central PA would never have thought possible. Next to the Emirates Palace (literally a 7 star hotel) in Abu Dhabi, Chestnut Hill is the best place I have ever visited. You have to go there!” Todd

Our 48th Wedding Anniversary

5 on May 18, 2009

When we travel, we always stay in a bed and breakfast, however, none have been as nice as Chestnut Hill. As soon as we turned into the driveway and saw this beautiful house, we knew we were in for a treat and we have not been disappointed. You welcomed us with open arms, shared the history of the house and your love for making it the wonderful place it is today. The rooms are well appointed, beautiful linens adorn the beds, the food was plentiful and delicious and the hospitality was out of this world! You have met our every need from making our dinner reservations, suggesting places for us to visit and then spending time to make sure we had directions to our destination and even your phone number should be need it. After a day of sightseeing, you welcomed us back with a hot cup of coffee, dessert and great conversation. You have truly made our "48th" Anniversary special. We consider you as part of our family. Charles & Alice, May 18, 2009

A Magical B&B

5 on May 15, 2009

We were told by the Innskeepers that this B&B just recently finished a six year renovation and WOW what a renovation it is! They weren't officially open yet when we stayed so we were very excited to be one of their first guests. The house is truly magical and has been beautfully decorated from top to bottom. No detail has been missed! The service we received was second to none and we felt so "at home" and welcome all weekend. Our bed linens and towels were incredible. Before we left, we ended up buying a set for our own personal use.
