What a delightful place to stay! Deb and Richard were great host/hostess and gave us good information about the area, etc. I just loved the front porch and would have used it more but rain and wedding activities were in the way. I definitely would recommend the Orchard House to my friends and we hope to visit again. Thanks for... More

Great place to stay, hosts Richard and Deb were extremely helpful and attentive. Rooms were great and lots of extra detail has gone into them. The house is comfortable and the front porch is a great place to relax in the evening. Breakfasts were imaginative but not quite to my English taste! For me some sides of cereal or toast... More

Thanks for your response. We really enjoyed visiting with you and your friends. Sorry you were disappointed in the absence of cereal and toast at breakfast. Had you asked, we would have been happy to accommodate. For our first few years we always had cereal on the sideboard but because we fix such large breakfast's, no one ever ate it... More

There is a vineyard on site, and Richard, the host, offers illuminating and fun info about grape-growing, making & drinking wine. The owners' recommendations re things to do were spot-on. (check out Bold Rock cidery nearby). Warmth and interest in their guests' satisfaction were obvious in Richard and Deb. Breakfasts were sensational, especially the Croissant-Apple French toast, puffed and crusty... More

Deb and Richard are wonderful hosts. This vintage home is comfortable and charming. The front porch is a lovely place to relax and unwind. In the evenings the fireflies make the trees appear as though they are covered in twinkle lights. Breakfast was very good. There are plenty of wineries to explore nearby.

We really enjoyed our stay at Orchard House. The house was lovely with some interesting history; breakfasts were delicious - just right. The proprietors really had just the right amenities without spoiling a lovely country house with an overdose of technology. It also seemed to be surrounded with the things we wanted to do - biking, hiking, good food, and... More

My husband & I stayed here three nights. The owners, Richard & Deb are friendly, gracious folks. They both share in the daily routine of making a scrumptious breakfast, cleaning the rooms & enjoying interacting with their guests. We stayed in the EMPIRE room, which is on the first floor. It had a fireplace & when we returned during at... More

This was our second time to this wonderful bed & breakfast. Our first trip was back in November 2014 for our 1st anniversary where we stayed 2 nights. We had such a memorable experience (awesome breakfasts and a fantastic private wine tour with Richard) that we came back for another night! Deb and Richard, the owners, are friendly, social and...

Traveling in February, we were snowed out of our intended destination, so tried this B&B (away from the mountains) and were delighted with our luck. The farmhouse is quite lovely and the rooms well renovated. We were the only guests and the owners graciously upgraded us to a warmer room. Again, as we were the only guests, the owners offered...

My girlfriend and I were looking for a weekend getaway in the Virginia wine country. We elected to stay in the Apple Blossom Farmhouse as we were unsure how late we would be checking in on Friday evening. The instructions on how to gain access to your room in the Farmhouse were precise and clear, we had no trouble at... More

My husband and I decided to do a weekend getaway for our 23rd anniversary, and we've always wanted to stay in a B&B and enjoy the local wineries and breweries. There are so many B&B's so it was tough to decide, but there was something about Orchard House that attracted me. So glad I chose it! Richard and Deb are... More
