we've stayed at the grey horse 4 or 5 times over the last 2 yrs. each time has been great. we are not high maintenance people but certainly have reasonably high expectations. in terms of value for the area they can't be beat. so worth it. we really have no complaints. having stayed in many b&b's over the years (some...

My wife and I stayed with friends at this cozy and quaint country Inn. John was a superb host and the breakfast was delicious. Can't wait to return!!

Our trip to The Plains was delightful. We were pleased with our accomodations at The Grey Horse. The Hearty's went out of their way to assure our reservations at the wonderful restaurant, Girasole, were in place and they even made sure the hostess and staff provided great service. We plan to stay again at The Grey Horse Inn.

I had to travel to The Plains, Virginia (forty miles west of Washington, DC) for two nights on business. The Grey Horse Inn was the perfect place to stay. It has all the plusses of a B&B (atmosphere, decor, peace and quiet, scenic views) plus all the amenities of a hotel, especially cable TV and wireless internet. It is conveniently... More

We we were a party of 10 looking to celebrate a special occasion. We contacted the inkeeper, John, who was very helpful. He not only offered us an early check-in, he assisted us with a little "surprise" for some of our friends! The inn was lovely and I would go back tomorrow just for Ellen's scones! We have already planned... More

The Grey Horse Inn sits on a charming property, rooms are clean and well porportioned and the house is filled old world charm. What is lacking was a sense of warmth and level of service that was not close to or on par with service received at B&B's we have visted in the area over the years. Having stayed in... More

We stopped in town and the Grey Horse Inn was recommended. A call was made to John to let him know that we were coming and interested in staying over night. When we arrived, John greeted us and took us on a quick tour of the rooms available. John was obviously distracted and did tell us that he had dinner... More

I just got back from the best get-away. The Plains, Virginia has a real jewel of a bed and breakfast, The Grey Horse Inn. The innkeepers were very helpful to make sure we had a good time while we were there. They offered suggestions of activities in the area and gave great directions. The accomodations were very comfortable and clean.... More

John and Ellen, the Inn keepers, are hospitable and warm. Their knowledge of the surrounding area, and willingness to share it, make it all the more fun to explore the beautiful country side where this inn is located. This is a horse lovers paradise. (and anyone else who appreciates the outdoors.) The inn is relaxed and comfortable, and feels like... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing mini-vacation away from our kids and work stress and found exactly what we were seeking at the Grey Horse. We were only able to get away for one night but after spending time relaxing and enjoying this beautiful B&B, we found that's all we needed. Upon arrival, we were given a... More
