The charm of the past with the comforts of the present. Jeff and Bonnie are warm and gracious hosts. The first morning i was a guest the breakfast was fresh fruit and berries, with a ham and cheese souffle, need i say more. The room was spacious,and invited quiet relaxation. It is only 10 minutes from the Blackfriars theatre and historic downtown shops and resturants. You will enjoy your stay.
A lovely place almost curated museum, but not a do not touch place at all. Well decorated with comfortable furniture, great vies and relaxing porches and decks Tasty cookies, a little wine and cheese, and great breakfasts... especially the Duch baby filled skillet pancake. Really appreciated the protein options provided, a nice variety so we were able to keep to our calories. Jeff and Bonnie are very thoughtful in this and all they provide. The location in Staunton is very peaceful, close to Mary Baldwin and to Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. Just sitting on the porch was a very nice interlude. This B&B would be a great place to gather friends before and after a Shakespeare play, a music festival or even the Harry Potter celebration. Stanton is a rich environment with plays, music, good restaurants (Emilio’s was some of the best Italian food outside of Italy we’ve had) of all types. There is good parking, and pretty much everything you want is within walking distance. Five stars to this lovely place and a thousand stars to Jeff and Bonnie who work hard to make it seem so effortlessly inviting. Linda And Erik Kjonnerod
As a father to 3 kids ranging from 3 to 11 years old I found Montfair to be the perfect place for the 4 of us to spend time and relax over spring break. The cabins were appointed with everything that we needed and the property was fantastic. We spent time hiking, fishing, and just rambling around the cabin woods. We will definitely be back and soon!
My husband and I booked two nights here for my birthday. Enjoyed our time here. The food was wonderful. The room was great. The owners made you feel like you are visiting family. It's in a small town and a couple of places we went when we told them where we were staying asked us to tell them hi. ¿¿
My wife and I met with some old friends who were visiting the area. Although we live within an hour of Harmony Hill, we decided to stay ourselves!! What a great, relaxing time! Thanks Jay & Wendy for the hospitality, fellowship and most of all the delicious breakfasts!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in one of the cottages (Mountain Laurel). The lovely breakfast delivery in a basket — with a knock to your door (but you don’t have to answer, which is nice if you still have “bed head”) — is fabulous. And the food was delicious! We hope to visit By the Side of the Road again.
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend getaway here! Our room was clean, spacious, and equipped with every detail imaginable. The staff was friendly and welcomed us with smiles and open arms. We enjoyed two breakfast meals during our stay - both were fresh, appropriate portions, and delicious! We hope to make our trip to the Inn at Old Virginia an annual event!
After staying at the Inn for many years and enjoying the hospitality of Inn owner Dr, Wayne Engles, they have announced that they are closing. Hopefully, they will reopen soon. This is a fabulous place to stay if you are a history buff or just have kids attending JMU. Best of luck Wayne! Steve and Sara
We stopped here in early January, and although we stayed only one night, we definitely plan to return in the spring or summer. We stayed in one of the "barn" rooms, and it was very comfortable, very clean ... the common area in the barn is bright and airy, and perfect for a quiet evening of reading by the fire. We peeked into the larger rooms on the upper and lower levels, and will most likely select one of them in the future as they are a little more spacious with king beds. Breakfast in the atrium was beautiful ... personally served and everything was simply delicious!! Although the rooms in the house itself might be more convenient for late night snacks or tea/coffee, those treats are available for just a quick walk ... the fresh made chocolate chip cookies after dinner in town was a perfect end to a long day on the road!
Innkeeper and owner made us feel immediately welcome. Central lounge area of bedrooms in the pre-civil war Barn remake was relaxing with on demand gas fireplace and balcony views of the cattle next door. Pleasant breakfast and easy conversation in the UK-like conservatory; movies (dvds) from an extensive library as desired. In a pastoral setting, yet less than 3 miles from Staunton, a gem of a town to explore for history and cuisine alike. Will return to this welcoming B and B!
My partner and I recently spent a holiday weekend at the Inn at Old Virginia, and it was simply delightful! The owner and staff were helpful and kind, upgrading our room and providing delicious breakfast in line with our dietary preferences. The property is completely charming, and nearby Staunton is a fantastic place to visit for the weekend. We wholeheartedly recommend!
We came for a one night getaway and loved our stay here. We stayed in the Bridal Room and it was so beautiful. It was a cold night at 12 degrees outside, but our room was warm and cozy, complete with fireplace. We loved all the history of the house. It was really interesting to read the information available. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and the price can't be beat. I'd highly recommend this B&B!
My wife and I have stayed at the Inn at Old Virginia three times and look forward to our next visit. From the moment you walk in the door you're welcomed by the staff and made to feel at home. The rooms are quiet and the owner has given each one her own personal touch. Breakfast is wonderful and is served in a beautiful glass enclosure that overlooks the rolling hills of Staunton. It's conveniently located allowing easy access to downtown Staunton and surrounding wineries, breweries, and other attractions. Next time you find yourself in Staunton, check out the Inn at Old Virginia...you'll be glad you did!
Beautiful B&B with generous size rooms. Rooms appointed very well with many antiques. Very comfortable beds and hot showers. One of the nicest B&Bs we have stayed at. Bonnie and Jeff are very gracious hosts and Jeff prepares a wonderful, delicious breakfast. Highly recommend Berkeley B&B!!
The Inn at Old Virginia is a wonderful place to stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. My husband and I were very pleased with the helpfulness of the entire staff. They all are so friendly and pleasant! I would highly recommend The Inn at Old Virginia if you are anywhere near Staunton, Virginia. We will definitely stay again!
I would encourage anyone who enjoys history, beautiful views and a friendly atmosphere to stay at Cave Hill. The owner has done a great job of maintaining the history of the house by decorating with much of the family’s original furnishings from past generations and telling the story about the property. We were there for one night and wished we could’ve stayed longer. The B&B hosts were extremely friendly and made us feel very comfortable. They served French toast with bacon and a locally roasted coffee for breakfast and everything was delicious. We certainly hope to return in the spring or maybe sooner.
I was looking for a quaint getaway for our anniversary. I read the reviews online about Cave Hill, and they were all positive, and I hereby add yet another positive review. We have been to several B&B's, and I believe this is one of the best experiences yet. It is a close drive to nearby Harrisonburg, where we spent the day strolling through the town. We returned to a quiet, well-furnished room (Bridal Room). Often times in older houses the rooms can be cold, but the in-room fireplace made the room quite comfortable. Omar and Hannah were super-friendly, yet honored our space. I highly recommend a stay here.
