“Lovely time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

quiet out of the way home, lovely room and great breakfast! Train tracks are a little too close for comfort. The coffee was weak and luke warm. It's a shame that there is no where good to eat in Goshen. Would be great if owners had an evening meal option. The bed linens were soft and comfy!

Room Tip: route 39 is scenic and filled with s curves. Don't go this way if you get car sick!

Thanks for the insights. The train is indeed close, but we like to think of it as part of the county charm. Good news about the availability of food in Goshen....the Mill Creek Cafe, is set to re-open by the end of August. And are we happy! The Inn has been specifically prohibited from serving any meals other than breakfast, but many guests do enjoy our Picnic Basket . Thanks again.

The hosts are the nicest people and can't do enough for you.
The grounds are large and beautiful and are easy to enjoy from the wraparound porch.
Our room was large and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable with the best linens I have ever slept on !
Breakfast was super and different every day .
The deck overlooking the river with the fireplace is a great place to spend the evening.
They seem to provide everything you will need snacks, bug spray,bedside flashlight, you get the idea !
They are right next to a fairly active train track while I am a semi Rail-fan it didn't bother me or any of the guests we shared the time with, potential guests should be aware of this. .
I would return for a second visit and enjoyed our stay with them !

Room Tip: The Eleanor has a king bed

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the Hummingbird Inn. We had never been to a bed and breakfast before, and I'm happy to say that we had a wonderful experience. This place is very quiet and the house is beautiful. The breakfast was amazing, and we couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts. We are so impressed with our stay---we definitely recommend this place to anyone seeking a relaxing time away from the daily grind. It's in a very scenic region of Virginia and just a short drive from several notable locations (Natural Bridge, Lexington, Staunton, James River, etc.). If you are going to stay at a Bed and Breakfast, we definitely recommend this place. We wished our trip didn't have to end!

The Hummingbird Inn is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast. The inn keepers Patty and Dan ensure you know the history of the house and provide you with information on any and all area attractions. The breakfast is fabulous and there are always some kind of snack or drinks available. On our trip we received a hikers pack with food, bug spray, lip balm and discount card. Pretty nice!
We stayed in the Franklin room - poster bed (very comfortable) and jacuzzi in the bathroom.
The yard is very large, nice deck with fire pit on the water. Wrap around porches and sunroom. All rooms have window A/C's.
Overall we loved it.

Room Tip: Goshen Pass is a must see and you can swim there also. Lexington and Stanton are both about 20 mile...

From the moment you arrive at the Hummingbird Inn, you are infected by the heart-warming charm and sincerity of this bucolic retreat in western Virginia. Patty and Dan have built a comfortable paradise in quaint little Goshen, and it's the perfect home base for all kinds of exploration in Lexington, Staunton, Hot Springs, Natural Bridge, etc. But we didn't even want to leave! You could while away an entire day reading and dozing in the sun room, or when the weather's nice head to their deck to sway on the hammock to the soothing sounds of the stream at the back of their property. You will not find better hosts than Patty and Dan, who have gone to every effort to make the smallest details of your stay absolutely perfect. We traveled with our young dog, and upon arrival our room was already equipped with dog bowls, a towel in case she got damp/dirty outside, treats, plastic bags, cute books about dogs, etc. And they know how to make us humans feel at home too! The sheets are luxurious, the rooms are impeccable, and the breakfast is a delicious, jovial, and oft-informative way to start the day. Patty & Dan know everything about this historic home and the surrounding area, so they're a great resource for all your questions and curiosity. If you're traveling to Shenandoah, you will not find a better place to stay!

Room Tip: If you're traveling with a pet you'll be in the Teton-Woods room on the first floor -- it...

My husband and I stayed at The Hummingbird Inn in May 2011 and enjoyed it so much we returned again this May. Patty and Dan are wonderful hosts and are so helpful planning your day(s) in the area. The Hummingbird Inn is centrally located between Lexington and Staunton and if you love wine, this is the area to come to! We love touring the local wineries and taking in the breathtaking scenery. A must stay when in the area!

Room Tip: We have stayed in a different room each time and have loved them both.
