“Wonderful weekend getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this place! Absolutely beautiful surroundings, great food, extremely nice proprietors and staff - I'd go back any day. It would be a great place for couples as well as friends.

Where to begin? What a peaceful, relaxing, beautiful Inn. The room was tastefully decorated, clean, and airy. Chef Adam cooked an exquisite meal, taking into account our strict dietary restrictions. Neil and Barry are kind and gracious hosts. We are already booking our next visit. The only reason we are hesitant to write this review is because we don't want the secret to get out! Absolutely perfect. That's really all there is to say!

Room Tip: I don't think will go wrong with any of the rooms!

I cannot say enough good things about The Inn at Vaucluse Spring. During our recent two night stay, my wife and I enjoyed the gracious hospitality of Barry and Neil, the absolutely delicious five course Saturday night dinner prepared by Chef Adam (including consideration for dietary issues) and the usual sense of feeling as welcome guests in someone's home, not just a customer. This was our fourth visit to The Inn and there will be many more. It has easily become our Northern Virginia home away from home.

Room Tip: We love upstairs rooms in the manor house.

Each time we return, this was our 14th year, we are struck by the number and types of choices available at Vaucluse. We usually opt to stay in opulent splendor in an upstairs room of the manor house. But for those who want a private get-away, the rustic (still pretty opulent) cabin or the magnificent Mill House next to the stream are unique experiences. Although we've stayed in several wonderful rooms and houses, we're wedded to just ascending the stairs at the end of one of Chef Adam's fabulous meals. It just doesn't get any better than this, and we're already booked for next year.

Room Tip: There are many different types of accomodations available so I would suggest reading the website car...

On the drive back home from our four day stay at the Cabin at the Inn, my wife Linda turned to me and said simply, "Perfect". And it was. The Inn, which includes the historic manor house and a number of other out-buildings, is perfectly maintained. The grounds are beautiful. Perfectly maintained gardens are everywhere - especially the numerous herb gardens used for their impeccable meals. Even the huge pasture where the herd of cattle graze has a wonderfully maintained path that takes you to the top of the hill where you can look down on the Inn and then back down to the natural spring. A falcon greeted me at the same time each morning on my walks. It was perfectly quiet and that's why we chose the Cabin with its covered front porch and rocking chairs. We did the 5 course dinner Saturday night for our anniversary. After a wonderful three hour experience, including a trip to the back porch to see the super full moon rising, it felt like we knew everyone in the Inn as friend, especially Neil and Barry, your hosts. So welcoming, and they know how to run an Inn. Between the delicious farm to table breakfasts and our gourmet dinner on Saturday night, we could not have been more satisfied. Wow! On our last day, I had the best breakfast I have ever had in all my years. Even though you are out in the middle of "quiet", you are close - a nice easy drive to - the National Park, great wineries (Linden and Glen Manor are great), Winchester (do the Museum of the Shenandoah) and Front Royal. Like I said, "perfect". The Inn at Vaucluse Spring has a warm and friendly atmosphere, the comfortable Cabin was perfect for our needs, and we look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Room Tip: The cabin - the front porch is wonderful. You are by yourself, but next to the manor house, pool ho...

We are local and did not stay, but had a wonderful dinner on a Friday evening. From our initial phone call through the entire evening, Barry was delightful and accommodating. Their chef adapted the menu to make vegan options for me. Their setting is absolutely beautiful- the home is beautifully restored. We cannot wait to return.

This was our fifth stay at the Inn and as we had a friend in from out of town we booked the Mill House for the three of us. It was divine. This was our first time in the Mill House and we loved the space it offered and the setting next to the spring. When having drinks by the spring one evening, our friend remarked he felt as if he were in Giverny, France. As if we needed any added bonus to what the Inn at Vaucluse offers the weather was superb.

We chose to dine Friday night and dinner was, as always, excellent with the most delectible salmon dish. It was also memorable as it made a convert out of one of our party who usually does not eat fish.

Barry and Neil made the entire stay so relaxing (as they always do). They are consummate Innkeepers. We are fortunate to be local (in nearby DC) and we count it as our fortune to have such a wonderful place as the Inn at Vaucluse Spring in order to have a nice weekend away from home.

Having stayed at the Manor twice, plus the Gallery and now the Mill House, we look forward to our next stay being in the cabin which we know to be a favorite of many. But no matter where you stay at the Inn, you cannot go wrong. It's all excellent and first rate!

Drinks and conversation beside the spring on a summer evening, watching the sun go down over the water-- one of the most memorable perks of staying at the Mill House Studio! We're so glad you got to experience this with your friend, and are sure you will really enjoy a stay in the Cabin on the Pond on your next visit.
