We discovered the Hummingbird via LivingSocial, and having stayed in B&Bs before, our expectations were high. Those expectations were exceeded. Dan and Patti take care of each and every guest with a level of service that will impress you, and knock it out of the park by tying in other vendors in the Lexington/Staunton area. We had a delicious dinner at brix, tasted wine at a winery, and ended up at a wine festival in Staunton that we heard about from a fellow guest over breakfast. To us, the integration with area activities made the stay extra-enjoyable.
- Dan presents a daily Things To Do briefing at breakfast, and detailed event/location information is stocked in each room. Super-easy to see the sights.
- The beds at the Hummingbird are so comfortable, and the sheets so soft, that you can buy them (the sheets). You will struggle to think of a reason not to.
- Eleanor Roosevelt stayed at the property during a visit to the area, and historical documentation of the stay makes you feel like you are a part of history.
- The inn sits beside a train track, and some amazingly long empty coal trains pass through a few times a day. The Hummingbird is so great that no one seemed to mind - it certainly didn't affect my sleep.
We would love to go back, especially in springtime.
