We are frequent visitors at the Lafayette Inn. This time we brought three other couples with us to help celebrate several birthdays. It was a perfect evening spent with friends enjoying a delicious 10-course dinner with specially selected wines prepared and served by Chef/Owner Alan Pyles and the always friendly staff. Everyone appreciated the comfortable (and clean) rooms and being... More

We had a amazing nights stay at the Lafayette Inn for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We had Alan's amazing 10 course meal and stayed at Dicey's cottage. It was more room than we needed but was wonderful to have the in-room fireplace, King size bed, and a huge jacuzzi tub. The meal Alan prepared was to die for, wine parings... More

Couldn't be nicer hostess and server but the food was average at best. The three of us had a uniform reaction, no need to return. The dining room had lots of potential but it was not realized. Burned out light bulbs in the chandelier, chipped paint everywhere. Sorry really wanted to like this place with such great history.

We had a wonderful one night stay at the Lafayette Inn and Restaurant. The day we were arriving we found out that the restaurant was closed to the public. We received excellent customer service from the Pyles (the owners) when they found a way to accomodate our desire to eat at the restaurant. They came up with a creative way... More

My wife and I did a weekend away at the Lafayette Inn and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Our room was clean and cozy with a personal gas fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed the Chef's tasting paired with wine and highly recommend it to food and wine enthusiasts. Chef and Owner Alan Pyles provided a personal touch/feel to the entire evening...

For our anniversary, my husband surprised me with a 10 course tasting paired with wine. Each small portion of food that was brought out was delicious and satisfying and the wine pairings were superb. With tastings, you get just that.....a taste. But at the end of 10 courses you have a satisfied belly and happy palate. Also, the wine is... More

We stayed one night (Saturday) and had booked online about 2 weeks prior. We intended to drive 3/4 of Skyline drive and then do the remaining 1/4 Sunday morning and needed lodging close to one Skyline's exit stations. This inn was exactly what we were looking for. We stayed in the Washington (which had its own outside entrance). The room... More

This was our second stay at the Lafayette Inn and we loved it again. It is a hidden gem so close to an entrance of Shenandoah NP and only 30 minutes to our daughter at UVA. We find the accommodations charming and well appointed, the breakfasts scrumptious, and the hospitality of the hosts and servers excellent! Real value for your... More
