I recently dined at the Joshua Wilton House. Mark Newsome is the Executive Chef and did a fabulous job. We were with a rather large group but everything was excellent. The appetizers were spot on and flavorful. The mini tomato quiches were fantastic. The salad I ordered was I believe the house salad but had a perfect mixture of flavor... More

Simply, it was phenomenal. I reserved a room there at the B&B for mine and my girlfriend's four year anniversary. My girlfriend called them up (secretly from me) to decorate the room and surprise me with it. They immediately were ecstatic to allow her to do so (of course with the condition of no open flames). When we arrived we... More

I love staying at the Joshua Wilton whenever I am in Harrisonburg. My daughter is a student at JMU and she loves staying there with me when I visit. The lavender roomis our favorite. The breakfast is always delicious. The fruit parfait with homemade yogurt and homemade granola is particularly special!

The room and accommodations were lovely. The hosts were accommodating and helpful. The diners at the restaurant were a bit loud on saturday...however-they didn't go too late and I had my sound canceling headphones which worked perfectly.

We really enjoyed our stay here. However--our room was very, very chilly as the cold February air really blasted through the original 19th C. windows in our room during our stay. We were shocked that apparently no one had taken the time to weatherproof the windows. Someone had stuffed some toilet tissue around the windows, but this wasn't helping. It's... More

Great place. Learned of it from a friend and a group of us stayed. Accommodations were excellent, rooms and property beautiful. As usual, the people made it great. The owner booked us in, led us to the room, explained all and said to come to him if we needed anything. Later that night we needed a few incidentals and extra... More

The Joshua Wilton House was very reasonably priced and in the most convenient location for my business trip. The management was very helpful and open with communication. The rooms and amenities were quite nice and the food was excellent. We were on a business trip and could not stay for the full breakfast but the "continental" breakfast consisted of homemade...

Although it was a beautiful setting, there was no hot water available for each of the two nights we stayed; it was noisy in the evenings with the restaurant guests; and the parking was limited. However, the breakfasts were good!
