My husband and I spent three nights at the Joshua Wilton House Inn back in May. We loved it and would stay again. The room was clean and the Inn overall was well-kept. The food was excellent. Breakfast every morning included homemade items (yogurt, granola, pastries, etc). We had dinner at the Inn one night which I would also recommend.... More

Joshua wilton house was A wonderful place to stay and relax. The room was clean and just as we expected. Lots of fun to explore Harrisonburg's wineries and restaurants, and of course JMU. We'll definitely come back again.

We arrived just before 3pm and found the key under the front mat. We were given room 5 which was newly renovated. It had a 4 poster bed, fireplace, antique dresser and small table. The bathroom was dated but clean. No hair dryer and the mattress has seen better days...not at all comfortable. Unfortunately there construction across the street and... More

The inn was light on staffing the weekend I stayed, so I'm unsure if this common during late spring. The breakfast service was slow even though the inn was not full. The same meal was served Saturday and Sunday and was quite good, if minimal. Monday's breakfast was bagels served by one of the owners who said no one did... More

We stayed a Sunday night in mid-June. I had lived in Harrisonburg and been in the restaurant for the house, but had never stayed in a guest room. The restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday, which was a disappointment. We arrived after 4:00 p.m. so our key was left for us with no one to meet us. We had been... More

Love Joshua Wilton House in Harrisonburg. Have been staying in nice chain hotels while my daughter attended James Madison University - really felt like I missed out on a treasure. Room was lovely, bed comfortable, bathroom modern - everything spotless. The service was friendly and welcoming. And the food! Breakfast was amazing, locally grown and deliciously prepared. We also enjoyed... More

We are from Harrisonburg and, therefore, know about the outstanding reputation of Joshua Wilton House. It was a hands-down choice when our daughter and her new husband were searching for wedding venues. At first I was a little apprehensive as I remember when this lovely house was the "TKE Fraternity House" in the 1970's. After visiting last year, we immediately... More

We really love this place. Ann Marie made us feel so welcome and room number 4 was perfect. Charming AND comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and dinner was fabulous--really! We loved the outdoor patio around the side to relax and the front porch rockers. Great location as we walked to Ricks cantina at night for a lovely sunset dinner on the... More
