My husband and I loved the Orchard Inn, and we plan on returning in the near future. Marc and Marianne are the perfect host and hostess, personable but professional. The food was to die for, and our room was very nice and clean. The views are wonderful as well, and we were entertained by the birds eating right outside the... More

We had a relaxing, enjoyable get away during spring break. We enjoyed beautiful views of the sun rising over the Warrior Mountains. Marc and Marianne offered gracious hospitality and scrumptious breakfasts. A remarkable inn!

I recently stayed at the Orchsrd Inn for my birthday. Marianne and Marc were the perfect hosts! My room #1 was cozy, welcoming and inviting. Upon arrival there was even a plate of homemade cookies and a muffin and candy on my bed. I went on the nature walk in the morning before breakfast with Marc and his two wonderful... More

Marc and Marianne make guests feel like dear friends, who are welcome in their home. The inn has such a warm and inviting feel w/ a huge fireplace in the main room, and spectacular views of... More

Our family was welcomed by Marc and Marianne and the wonderful staff to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday in the relaxed atmosphere that abounds in the Orchard Inn. The entire stay could not have been more perfect. Each meal is meticulously prepared. Delicious. We will be back!

I have known the owners of the Orchard Inn since I was a child. As a good friend of their sons, I visited their home in Florida more times than I can ever remember. I always said that they should go into the hospitality industry because they are the most incredible hosts. I had the pleasure of visiting them this... More

We returned for the first winter stay. The main house was beautifully decorated and the fireplace was lite. A warm cozy atmosphere even if the outside was cold and rainy. We stayed in the Laurel Cottage which had a comfortable homey feel with all the amenities . As usual Marianne and Marc were the perfect hosts tending to our every... More

The Dickens Dinner - 5 courses accompanied by readings from A Christmas Carol by a Dickensonian costumed gentleman - was a perfect Christmas gift to ourselves. The food was excellent and the guests all quite interesting. Although we live only 20 miles away we took advantage of the special room rate and spent the night. A lovely corner room, comfy... More

This was our first visit to Orchard Inn. We stayed in Paulownia Cottage. I recommend it, plenty of space, comfortable king sized bed, spacious bathroom, and a fireplace that we enjoyed every morning and evening. Large deck overlooking the orchard and down the valley with a lovely sunrise view. The food was delicious. Thanksgiving dinner did not disappoint. Dining room... More
