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.
We wanted a short getaway after the Holiday activities. We enjoyed the B&B tremendously. The accommodations were comfortable and beautiful. I felt like I was home. Service was very good and the breakfast in the morning was very good. Would highly recommend.
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.
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!
The place was very clean and beautiful. Troy and Kathleen were very helpful in finding what to do in Orange Virginia. The room was comfortable, and the complimentary drinks and snacks was very pleasant.
This was a perfect place to meet family in Charlottesville. We had the 2 room suite (Room 20) so had a great living room to hang out with family, and then it converted into a pull out bed. Wonderful service and attention. Like coming home to people happy to see you. Wonderful cookies, and loved the wine and cheese evening treat.
The Inn was beautiful and very clean. We arrived late but Jack was there to greet us and settle us in. We had a great stay and an amazing home cooked breakfast in the morning. We wandered around the grounds before departing. Jack and Pat were gracious and inviting hosts and made us feel right at home.
Elizabeth and Jay are terrific innkeepers. They have created a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing environment that quickly melts away tension and stress. The farm house itself is nicely updated with excellent rooms and bath facilities. The countryside is lovely as are the afternoon beverages and snacks. In sum, a great place to stay.
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Mayhurst Inn. Jack and Pat were very friendly and helpful.The historical house has so much detail and quality workmanship! The breakfasts were delicious and presented very nicely. Some nice added touches like bottled water and chocolate truffles and evening wine/soda and cheese!
When our hotel plans fell through, we needed to scramble to find new lodgings and were lucky enough to find the Inn. The setting is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The home is lovely, large, and solid feeling, with gorgeous interior and exterior spaces. The rooms are so well spaced and private that we thought we were the only guests until breakfast arrived. Speaking of which, the food was delicious, fresh, and satisfying. Our temporary innkeepers provided us with friendly and accommodating company. We're looking forward to returning in the future.
Jack and Pat are excellent hosts! They are engaging and welcoming. This was our second stay, and just as enjoyable as the first. Jack and Pat recommended places to have dinner, and we went to both! Delicious meals at La Finca, and The Pomme.
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at the Mayhurst Inn. It is a beautiful property and so well kept by Jack and Pat! We stayed in the General's Room, which was perfect size for us, but I believe the smallest in the house. They weren't completely booked so we got to see the other rooms and they all looked lovely! Jack and Pat make a WONDERFUL breakfast for us in the morning, and we would return just for that! Wish we had a longer time to stay, but I think we will definitely return if we get the chance. Jack was very helpful with directions and advisements for dinner. Lovely stay with lovely hosts.
My husband and I decided to try out a bed and breakfast for the first time for our second wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed! We didn't know exactly what to expect but it was above and beyond anything we've experienced before. The property manager Eric was extremely nice and accommodating. When we arrived he gave us a tour of the house and it was spectacular! There are so many amenities that we were sad to only be there for 2 nights. We stayed in the thoreau room with its own private porch and jacuzzi tub. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable and the whole house was open for use. Eric was extremely available but not at all bothersome. He cooked is an amazing breakfast 2 days in a row and humored our weird dietary requests (my husband won't eat cheese or veggies mixed in eggs and I won't eat pork or beef) with patience and kindness. It was some of the best breakfast we've had.... my husband was OBSESSED with the coffee glazed bacon that Eric surprised him with on our second morning. We'd also chosen the mimosas in bed package but Eric let us choose where we wanted to have the breakfast and we chose to have it on the private porch. He sat up the most elegant table outside with everything imaginable for breakfast! It was so relaxing to sit in the rocking chairs on the porch and have a 5 star breakfast, French pressed coffee, and mimosas! Our absolute favorite part about Walden Hall though was the clubhouse on the lower floor of the house. There is an amazing game room, pool table, air hockey, gym, basketball hoop, and a fully functional home movie theater with complementary popcorn! We spent both nights down here and had a blast! We can't wait to go back and are already planning to bring our best friends! This place is amazing and I'd be scared to even try another b & b for fear it wouldn't live up to this same experience. One piece of advice....Stay here!!!
This was by far the best B&B we have stayed at. We were in the pool suite for two nights to celebrate an anniversary and attend a nearby wedding. Wish we would have had more time to enjoy the property. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a full kitchen. The salt water pool was fantastic and just outside our door. Eric was a great source of information and offered recommendations for dinner among other things. Loved sitting out on the large front porch. Happy hour was an added bonus. They have thought of all the little extras to make your stay special. Breakfasts were delicious. We will return again so we can take advantage of all the amenities they offer. Culpepper is only 10 minutes away with plenty of dining options and cute shops. Lots of wineries to visit as well.
It was a nice stay, I would have preferred a TV in the room but a nice room overall. The grounds were nice and the dog enjoyed them. The restaurant was good, but seemed to have issues at dinner without super advanced notice. We requested to eat there the day of our arrival and apparently the Chef couldn't handle less than a 12 hour notice.
My family and I have stayed at the Inn at Little Washington, Wedmore and other highly rated facilities in the area. This was our favorite. Charming property with very gracious owners. Super location and property with a real Chanticleer to wake you up in the morning. Great cinema room, arcade and game facilities, star gazing telescopes, a heated pool and forest trails.The one area for improvement was the food. I would have given 5 stars for value if the breakfast had been anything more than extremely pedestrian. Not a huge issue because of wonderful restaurants like Fotis near by, but something a property of this caliber should improve on.
We loved Walden Hall! What a hidden gem! The owner's have invested their heart & soul into this place and thought of all the "little things" - gorgeous view, beautiful Pool we did not get to try, movie theatre, Ms.pacman, beer on tap! The home itself and rooms are impeccably decorated. The only glitch is if you care about noise do not stay in the main level room - you can hear every clank of a spoon or the doors opening and shutting as well as the people above (they tried to lessen the noise by setting the dining room table up the night before which was really nice but it still was bothersome). My one other piece of advice- you say happy hour is on the "weekends" but do not consider sunday the weekend but you do friday? It would be better to say "happy hour Friday & Saturday" We will definitely return but will stay on the top level! This place is worth checking out - and they are opening a brewery a few miles away!
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay. Very large and comfortable room with great breakfast! Innkeepers, Sharon and Sam, were super helpful in pointing us to and arranging our visits to nearby attractions. Look forward to staying again and seeing more of historical sites and wineries in central Virginia!
This is a great place to stay! Room/suite was large and very comfortable and breakfast was wonderful. Inn was very convenient to historical sites and wineries in central Virginia. Innkeepers, Sharon and Sam, were great hosts and went all out to make our visit great!
