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...

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

My husband and I traveled to Virginia with my sister and her husband. We stayed at the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast for three nights. Our visit to Virginia was to take in some fall colors and also to visit Monticello and the "Walton's Mountain Museum." We found Richard and Deb to be very friendly and hospitable. They were very...

So very charming and quaint. My wife and I spent three nights here for our 25th anniversary. Richard and Deb went out of their way to make us feel at home. The Gala room was spacious and comfortable. Loved the maple egg cups for breakfast. A true original!

I have stayed at many B&B's, and one aspect that makes a B&B excellent are the owners who are outgoing, personable and truly enjoyable to be with. At Orchard House, Deb and Ron met those requirements, as well as providing very spacious and accommodating rooms along with fabulous breakfasts! We picked the Orchard House as it was somewhat centrally located... More

You and your friends that came with you were like old friends to us the minute you walked in the door even though we never met. Just clicked right away and we so enjoyed visiting with you. Maybe we'll see you in Richmond in December! We'll bring you a bottle of Trump. More
