This is our second stay at Caledonia Farms. Our first one was 26 years ago, we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Inn at Little Washington and we stayed overnight at Caledonia Farms. These many years have gone by and this last Christmas our children gave us dinner at the Inn as our gift - so... More

We stayed at the Caledonia Farm for Valentine's Day with another couple. Due to unexpected traffic, we arrived 2 hours later than planned. Additionally, there had been a mix up with our reservation- he had us down for 2 people while we thought we booked for 4. Phil was gracious about the late arrival and adjusted the mix-up quickly.

Like some of the other commenters this is a difficult experience to review. On the one hand, we did not have extremely high expectations per say. However, even our lowered expectations were not met. To preface this review, we have restored and live in a house that is 130 years old. We understand firsthand the delicate balance of preserving history... More

Caledonia Farm-1812 B&B has always enjoyed flawless inspections by the Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia, health department and thousands of guests over the past 30 years. We do not impose internet postings on our many repeat and referral guests but almost all do leave a complimentary comment upon departure. It is hoped that anyone deciding on a venue based... More

It has been months since our visit to Caledonia Farm and I too like another reviewer have struggled with writing my review. There is no doubt that the Inn is historic and that Phil is an interesting host. The setting is amazing and Phil needs to be commended for his work in preserving its beauty for generations to come. We... More

Stink bugs are inevitable twice yearly everywhere in this area, Deep cleaning is professionally performed between each visit. New sheets and towels are provided regularly. Décor might appear to some folks...clutter. Caledonia Farm-1812 "Farmstay" is up to snuff More

This is truly a special place, a refuge of exceptional natural beauty and refinement. It is no accident that this charming B&B—recognized by the national historic registry—sits in the midst of unspoiled scenery of such beauty, since the proprietor, Phil Irwin, has donated vast expanses of surrounding land as conservation easements. Phil is a leading citizen of Rappahannock County, the... More

We are delighted that our guests, now friends, think highly enough of the Caledonia Farm-1812 B&B experience to regularly return and to bother to write a review...no such requirement is needed to enjoy either of our 200 year old suites and 30 years of hospitality. More

I feel conflicted writing this review. On the one hand, I feel a certain amount of pity for the innkeeper, Phil, and therefore feel bad writing a review that could harm his business, but on the other hand, I feel an obligation to warn people of what you're getting into if you stay at Caledonia Farm/BnB-1812. We attempted to stay... More

Since I am a sole proprietor, reserving guests are asked to predict an approximate arrival time and if more than an hour early or late to please call. Appropriate welcome hospitality awaits all those showing such basic courtesy. Caledonia Farm-1812 does not have a front desk. Guests expecting a delightful farmstay at an historic 200 year old landmark are invited. More

We were in the area for an event and decided to stay at the B&B versus a generic chain hotel. There is a 2-night minimum due to leaf-peeping season so we decided to make a weekend out of it. We were met by the charming host who showed us to our second floor suite: creaky stairs, 'house mouse' toy, small... More

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend in August. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Caledonia Farm and with the host, Phil. We were in town for an event, so we didn't get to spend as much time at the Farm as we would have liked. We were disappointed that we didn't have a chance to tour the... More

Caledonia Farm was a true delight.My gentleman friend, Wim, and I spent this past weekend at the farm along with Wim's brother and sister-in-law. We spent two nights in the two bedrooms located on the second floor of the original building with a shared bathroom. Both rooms were spacious, clean, and well appointed. Sharing the bathroom was not an issue... More

What a beautiful and genuine country B&B! My fiance and I stayed at Caledonia Farm this past January upon celebration of our engagement. Though the weather was cold, the atmosphere in the house was warm, and the surroundings breathtaking. The house itself has a cozy kitchen, with letter magnets on the fridge, and the odd newspaper clipping here and there.... More
