We have stayed here twice in the past six months, most recently this past weekend. The Inn offers a beautiful, historic home with contemporary comforts, which can sometimes be a difficult combination to find. The innkeepers are helpful and accessible, but not intrusive. The gardens are very nice, as are the balconies that overlook the grounds in some of the... More

We have just returned home to NH from another stay at the Grey Horse Inn in The Plains, one of the sweetest little villages in all of Virginia and once again we found it a difficult place to leave. Every year we try to visit nearby Manassas Battlefield at the time of the anniversary of the 2nd Battle and every... More

Please if you want to have a relaxing nice time and get some rest do not stay here. Staff was inappropriate. Made you feel unwelcome. Rooms were noisy. Couldn't sleep all night.

My wife and I were looking forward to a bucolic respite at the Grey Horse after going through some serious health issues. We were assured, after making three phone calls, that the Grey Horse was a quiet, charming place. What we found couldn't have been further from the truth! The rooms were not well maintained and the staff and owners... More

We regret that “Richmond, VA” had a negative experience at the Grey Horse Inn. However, we would like to address some of the statements that he posted on TripAdvisor. Our Inn is a small, upscale six room establishment. We serve a gourmet, country breakfast to our guests but do not serve dinner. We are fortunate to have three excellent restaurants... More

My wife and I had two wonderful visits to the Grey Horse Inn and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The Heartys were great hosts and have created a bed and breakfast spot that is outstanding in every respect. The amenities are luxurious and comfortable and superior to any five star hotel. And it would hard to beat the attractions... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Grey Horse Inn 4 times now, and it's time to write a review to share this wonderful experience with others. It's a lovely place with spacious and impeccably clean rooms, a very accommodating staff, and a relaxing atmosphere. The owners, John and Ellen are delightful, and they know how to make their...

My husband and I stayed in the spacious and beautifully-decorated John Marshall Room (my husband's namesake). Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the wonderful aroma of homemade cookies, which Melissa immediately offered to us. She then gave us a tour of the B&B, and a view of all the rooms (as we were the first ones to check in).... More
