“"The perfect weekend"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We loved the Inn at Vaucluse. We stayed for two days for our 5 year anniversary and couldn't have had a better time. Because our anniversary is in February - we often wonder how much easier it would be to find a great place in the spring, summer or fall due to the weather in the D.C. area in winter. The Inn at Vauclause disabused us of this notion - it couldn't have been more beautiful, relaxing and fun. We stayed in a room in the Chumley House and it was comfortable, beautiful, and had a great fireplace. We were the only guests, so we also spent time in the common area of the house which had a beautiful sun room and a reading room with an amazing wood burning fireplace. We played games by the fire and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was wonderful, and Barry and Neil were great. We highly recommend this property.

We loved the Inn at Vaucluse Spring. The accommodations and the setting are wonderful, with the rooms elegant as well as comfortable and relaxing. The range of buildings and rooms is extremely impressive for a comparatively small place. The Saturday night dinner was delightful -- delicious, creative and perfectly sized portions. A perfect wedding anniversary. We plan on coming back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Chumley home are very nice -- get the one with the balcony.

We were "first timer's" at the Inn and our intent was to spend a memorable weekend with friends. Our expectations were far exceeded. Both Neil and Barry could not have been more hospitable, the rustic ambience soothing, and the staff simply outstanding. Special kudos to Chef Adam for his exquisite, gourmet meals.

Such a lovely two night stay at this beautiful in. The Inn is outfitted with beautiful paintings and furniture that provide a very intimate experience for the guests. The staff is outstanding, and the Inn owners are warm, humble and terrific at making you feel welcomed. My husband and I had dinner our second night at the Inn. We have had some very special chefs cook for us (a White House Chef, an Ambassadors Chef), this dinner was the most memorable of the three. Chef Adam provided a mix of flavors, a light touch with intense variation of flavors, really just a treat! The room offerings are varied and it is worth it to look at what is offered to maximize your experience! Enjoy!

Room Tip: -if you want convenience stay in the main house. Top floor is more expensive but quiet and close...

We stayed at the Inn for two nights, December 30th and 31th and had a wonderful time while there! There are a number of options for rooms in about six different buildings and all with lovely furnishings. We stayed in the Thornton Room, located in the Winter Kitchen, which shares a comfortable sitting area with two other rooms. We ate dinner there both evenings and thoroughly enjoyed them (as we did the two breakfasts both mornings).

Neil and Barry are quite the hosts and make you feel right at home the minute you walk in. The two of them make a stay at The Vaucluse a memorable experience. I would recommend staying there more than one night to fully enjoy this Inn and the dinners. They can provide you with information on wine tours, battle sites of The War Between the States, other historic sites, hiking, horseback riding, golf, bowling, etc. but you may prefer just sitting by a fire, reading a book or sitting on one of the porches enjoying the scenery.

I highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Rooms in the winter kitchen are below the main floor so you can hear noise, music etc. in those thre...

Have stayed here a few times, and every experience has been pleasant! Been in the Stephens Room (Chumley), the Hite Suite (Chumley), and the Mill House - the latter is the most spectacular, if you can ever save up enough to afford it. Every meal has been delicious, and every night has been restful and refreshing. If we could just stow away our cats, it'd feel like our own private vacation home!

Staff members are kind and efficient. The owners are as engaging or as hands-off as you wish, and since my wife & I are b&b hermits, the arrangement works well. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Fun to walk around the grounds at night, when most are asleep

With two young children we don't often have the chance to get away for the weekend, so on the rare occasions we do, we like to make it special. Valentine's weekend at the Inn at Vaucluse is the one annual trip we do everything in our power to take. If my math is correct we will be taking our 5th trip there again in 2014.

Our 2013 Valentine's day trip was equally wonderful to the previous trips we've taken. Neil and Barry are always friendly and gracious hosts and make every effort to make the stay enjoyable. This trip we stayed in the Gallery which is lovely and quiet. It has both a wood burning and gas fireplace. I had every intention of using the wood fireplace, but ended up being lazy and just using the gas one upstairs. Chef Adam always has wonderful and creative meals which usually surprise us without being too over the top. The wine selections always pair very well with the food and we really love that they carry some of the local Virginia wines, which we've come to be particularly fond of.

Needless to say we are counting the days until our next visit!
