“Best B & B I've stayed in in a long time!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I travel solo all over the world for business, and really appreciate it when I find a nice place to stay every once in a while instead of the typical soul-less chain hotel. The owners of this B&B go above and beyond to make this happen. Breakfast every morning was amazing - homemade jams and honey from their beehives, fresh fruit, oatmeal berry pancakes, homemade granola, eggs, quiche, turkey bacon, lots of coffee, and more! There were also delicious cookies around for quick snacks. I stayed in the Garden Suite, which I think is perfect for a solo or couple staying for more than one night. It has its own entrance off the back porch if you want to use it. It's a nice big room with a fairly large bathroom. Queen sized bed and a great wifi connection. It also has its own sunroom where you can make coffee before hitting the big breakfast, a microwave, and a fridge. The view from this room, like the dining room, is straight over the Peaks of Otter and in the mornings you can look down over the pond and spot the huge grass carp in the shallow water. The goats are super cute and I visited with them every day! I also checked out the beehives and looked in vain for the wandering chicken on the property. I even got to go next door (the owners also own this property) to check out the pool. There is a jacuzzi on the B&B property that looked like fun just outside of the Vanquility Suite downstairs. The owners were amazing - I sat up and talked goats and medicine with John, and Ellen wouldn't let me clean up my dishes once! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back in 6 months when I revisit my new client in the area. I can't recommend this place enough!!!

We spent a delight couple if nights here - very comfortable & quiet, but close to the Parkway AND some decent restaurants for dinners. The owner is charming and serves a great breakfast! We are planning to go back & take friends!

My husband and I stayed here in August, having spent 6 weeks around the Norfolk area of Virginia. This is a little piece of tranquility, a real home from home. We were given a very warm welcome, had lovely accommodation with fabulous views and a super all home cooked breakfast. They use all their own produce, including homemade breads, cakes and jams. We couldn't have asked for anything better. It is in a great location for visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains and we did some great walking. We will definitely go back. Thank you.

Why stay in a “never-knowing-what-you’re-going-to-get” hotel when you can experience the wonderful accommodations of Ellen & John’s Vanquility Acres Inn? As part of a recent vacation, we wanted to tour Bedford’s D-Day Memorial. For an overnight stay, we liked what we saw on the Vanquility Acres Inn website. We chose the extremely comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated Blue Ridge Room. Ellen has thought of everything!! Her personal attention to detail matches how she “would want to be treated” herself. The bedroom and private bathroom are immaculately clean, with lots of conveniences. Before it got dark, we took a stroll around the quiet and peaceful neighborhood, enjoying the beautiful view of the mountains. For breakfast the next morning, we devoured Ellen's scrumptious homemade breakfast. On the dining room table, we discovered a bottle of John’s outstanding fruit-flavored honey, which came from his own bees in the backyard. During our meal, we enjoyed fun and interesting conversations with other guests and Ellen. If you have any special dietary needs, you only need to let Ellen know in advance. After enjoying more delightful conversation with Ellen, we packed up to leave for our day of touring. We both left the Inn feeling like we’d found a brother and sister, and would love to have stayed longer. Later that afternoon, we drove to Bedford’s Liberty Station restaurant for a tasty lunch. The restored historic railroad-station-turned-restaurant was highly recommended by Ellen and other locals. We already have recommended Vanquility Acres Inn to co-workers, family, friends, and neighbors. After such a positive experience, we both agree that when in the Bedford area, we wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else. -Debbie & Ronnie (Ashland, Va.)

Any accomodation limitations (shared shower facility with our travel friends next door) were more than compensated for by the excellent breakfasts (best of our trip during our stay at various hotels in six US states ( our first US visit !!)) ) and the considerable friendliness of our hosts (and other breakfast guests).We had excellent views of the countryside, the lake and the goats meandering to and fro across the bridge . All provided for an enjoyable final two days stay prior to our flight back home to the UK .A big thank you once more to our hosts!!

We were desperate to find a place at the last minute. Ellen was very accommodating and had a wonderful comfy room available. It is very tranquil and quiet. The view of the mountains is superb, with the pond a nice contrast. Enjoyed the home made breakfast, especially the veggie frittata made with fresh eggs from her hens. Very close to the Blue Ridge. Highly recommend to travelers from the Hampton Roads area as the four hour drive can't be beat getting there.

Coming originally from California and living in Hampton Roads currently, this was a breath of fresh air, literally. Situated in the rural residential community of Bedford, this is a peaceful and beautiful place to stay. Fairly easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and near some of the more remote historical sites of Virginia, the location is great. The accommodations are top notch; guest rooms are spacious and comfortable. The Vanquility Suite where we stayed was complete with a sink and mini-fridge, enclosed porch and open porch, view of the open land and mountains in the background, easy hot-tub access, and most notable an immensely comfortable king size bed. John and Ellen are very nice, and when other guests are present offer the opportunity to eat and commune with others. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, but especially those looking for a more peaceful and communal type of stay.
