Comfortable Luxury

5 on November 24, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for our 1-year wedding anniversary and it was all we could hope for! The Turquoise Room was beautiful and so comfortable and welcoming. The owners were so friendly and offered a great German much food that we had no room for lunch. Little touches here and there, like a wine hour, chocolates everywhere, water, sodas and treats in the room, and the guest names listed on the chalkboard out front made us feel special and welcome during our entire visit.

Amazing getaway!

The owner was completely wonderful. Best breakfast. Comfortable beds and so clean! Would definitely come back. Came for a wedding and they made the bride feel and look amazing. Took great Photos and held a great ceremony. Best bed and breakfast!

Last minute get-away better than if we'd spent months planning

My boyfriend and I decided on a Friday night, after a hard week at work, that we wanted to get out of DC and head down to the Shenandoah Valley for a weekend getaway. We booked South Court Inn for Saturday night and jumped in the car early Saturday morning. This was our first B&B and it was a wonderful experience! Everything was clean, beautifully furnished/ decorated, which Anita did herself. The breakfast was much fancier and high-end than we were expecting. Tom and Anita gave us history lessons on their plate ware, old-time etiquette and drew their menu inspiration from actual historic menus. The descriptions enriched our experience, and maybe even made the food taste better! The room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. We had a great night's sleep! Overall- we really couldn't have planned it any better if we had spent more time.

A nice place, very pretty location, friend service.

The Susie Hodges Cottage

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was the perfect balance of comfort and privacy. The breakfast on both Saturday and Sunday was amazing; I have tried and failed to make the pumpkin spice french toast at home. Tom and Anita went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make sure our trip was perfect. We decided to try the wine trail, and we had an wonderful time relaxing at the different wineries. We will definitely be staying at the South Court Inn again. We cannot thank Tom and Anita enough for making our first vacation so wonderful!

I could not have asked for a better place to have my intimate wedding! The staff is great and really personable. They are also very knowledgeable about the house which makes for quite interesting discussions! Make sure you ask about how the basement was put in!

We got married here 12-18-2011. Everything was awesome. The innkeepers, the room and the ceremony. We were extremely comfortable and couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be back every year for our anniversary.

Thanksgiving in Shenandoah Valley

Superb quality in all aspects. Quality food, comforts, setting, and hospitality. Definitely our destination when back in this area. Close to local activities and in a safe, peaceful setting. The hosts are experts innkeepers; they provide great value for guests.

Perfect Thanksgiving Getaway

4.8 on November 28, 2011

Tom and Anita are fabulous hosts. The room was comfortable. A welcome snack basket and mini fridge with sodas and water were nice perks we've not experienced before. Meals were FABULOUS -- looked great, tasted great, and were unique. The Thanksgiving package included dinner at the Mimslyn Inn in Luray. It was a delicious dining experience. Tom even made us pumpkin pie and yummy apple pastries for our second dessert! Great coffee to drink with the BEST PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST made with croissants. Every course, from fruit to dessert, was what I would expect from a fine dining establishment. Tom and Anita have all the bases covered for a marvelous B and B experience. We've been going to B and B's for 10+ years for birthdays and anniversary, and South Court Inn with Tom and Anita Potts rates in the top 3 of all times.
