What can I say? The Apple Valley Inn is a treat like no other; and not just because of the many treats in Candy Apple Shop they have on the property.
First, the owners of the Inn, Lauren & Leigh, are just so very kind and should be proud of their wonderful Inn. They really make you feel like you are part of their family and my wife and I could not have asked for better hosts. It is easy to see why every review on this site is exceptional. Everything is exceptional from the rooms to the scrumptious breakfasts made every morning. I especially appreciate them accomodating my wife who has certain dietary needs. They made my wife quite happy which of course, made me equally as happy.
Secondly, my wife and I really enjoyed walking the beautiful grounds which are meticulously landscaped. We particulary enjoyed relaxing on the two seat swing chair that overlooked the running brook in the back of the Inn. You are surrounded by many types of beautiful flowers and all the splendor that nature has to offer.
We loved the area; especially the Appalachian Trail nearby. It was such a pleasure in being able to soak in all the great views during our hike on the trail. We have already booked our return this fall to not only enjoy the Inn again, but to enjoy the great fall foliage that the area is known for.
There are so many great things I can say about the Apple Valley Inn as the list is endless. I do know that it is one the best places my wife and I have stayed at and should be rated as one of the better Inns around; hands down.
And before I wrap up the review, when visiting the Inn, one must stop by the Candy Apple Shop that Lauren & Leigh run. Lets just say I enjoyed all the samples I had the pleasure of trying and I guarentee that you will be hooked :-) I brought home a caramel apple and dark chocolate covered pretzel with caramel, but they didn't make it past the first day we got back. Talk about heavenly!
If you want a vacation of total relaxtion, fantastic hosts and so much more, this is a can't miss.
