“The Inn at Vaucluse Springs just doesn't disappoint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

Our stays at the Inn continue to be delightful and stimulating. The owners, Barry & Neil, provide opportunities to meet the other delightful guests, but ensure that we have our privacy and opportunities to relax. We didn't think it possible, but the meals were off the charts this year, both in taste and presentation. The staff is accommodating and friendly. Coming to the Inn has become a yearly habit for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at this comfortable, charming Inn and vowed to come back sooner next time! To anyone planning a visit, you must plan to enjoy their fantastic dinner (Saturday night or Friday night's more casual supper). There is no reason to go out when you can dine right there and simply retire to your room without driving afterward. Saturday evening's leisurely 5 course meal was outstanding! The chef's use of local, in-season ingredients and warm, and always friendly servers made the evening memorable. Enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness of the property - the pool was so relaxing and refreshing. Hiking is nearby but this time our focus was simple relaxation and touring some wineries in the area that we missed last time! Looking forward to our next visit!

Nestling in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, the Inn at Laucluse Springs is a wonderful place for a short break from life in a big city. The Spring, the pond, the rolling grounds, and the pool, all make it a truly restful and relaxing place. We stayed at the Hite Suite at the Chumley Homeplace, and recommend it highly for the wonderful log cabin ambience. Breakfast is just right and the staff is friendly and cheerful, and go the extra mile to meet your dietary needs - my wife is diabetic and a vegetarian and she was very pleased with the food. The Inn is a good base to explore Winchester (do visit the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley) and the vineyards - we visited Linden and Narmada. We dined at the Violino Ristorante and the Sona Restaurant in Winchester, and would recommend both very highly.

Finally, Barry is very helpful and we loved his dry sense of humor! We may stop by sometime for a Friday supper or Saturday dinner one of these weekends.

I chose The Inn at Vaucluse Spring based solely on other visitors' reviews. There wasn't one bad review (or even moderate one) among them and now I know why. This place is truly special. The beautiful, serene location combined with tasteful, comfy rooms makes a perfect combination. I can't wait to go back and try out some of the other buildings. This time I stayed in The Chumley Suite in the Chumley House. It's a big room with lots of natural light and a two-sided fireplace that opens to the bedroom and the bathroom - must be perfect in the winter! The swimming pool is just a few steps away from the Chumley House and it was deserted most of the time. Each time I went for a swim I was the only person there. The water temperature was pleasant - not too cold or too warm. Breakfast is yummy! Each breakfast includes a homemade baked good, mixed fruit and a hot entree. I only ate one additional meal the rest of the day since breakfast was so filling. The staff is friendly and everybody went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed. In addition to all of the above, this place is amazingly affordable! All I can think about is how soon I can go back.

This is a charming inn nested in the Shenendoah valley. It offers great surroundings, and is close to a number of outdoor activities (canoeing, hiking), wine tasting, antiquing. There is a very well organized extensive list of possibilities described in the welcome package in each room. There are a number of good restaurants in the area (including one in the inn itself).

The staff was exceptional--so friendly and attentive. The food (both dinner and the breakfast) were wonderful. The rooms were adorably charming and super clean. There are lots of fun wineries nearby.

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway over the July 4th weekend. This was the first time we had stayed at an establishment that was a member of the Select Registry (check out their website) and it certainly was a cut above other B&Bs and Inns we have been to. Rather than repeat what others have said I would like to point out some things that are rather extraordinary about this place.

We stayed in the lowest price room the Thornton Room. This room is in the main house and is on the lower level and I had concern about possible noise from above. I was assured when I booked the room that would not be the case. It was quiet and much to my surprise for the price it was quite large with a large bathroom too. I loved the lighting package, many recessed overhead lights and good lighting in the bathroom too. We had a fairly good size window. I suspect that the room is not as fancy as some of the more expensive ones but it was great. The bed was comfortable and the two chairs in front of the fireplace were also very comfortable. There was wifi internet access on the main level of the house as well as the dining room. We spent time on the lovely porch in the back and enjoyed talking to other guests. It was extremely hot during our stay but the Thornton room was always very comfortable.

Barry and Neil are warm and welcoming without being intrusive. We opted for Saturday night dinner which was truly spectacular, the chef is world class. Breakfasts were also very good with a special bread of the day, fresh orange juice too, coffee or tea, and a main course -- one day it was crepes, the next day a delicious strata with mushrooms and other vegetables. Dining is done at a leisurely pace which is very relaxing and nice. What is special is the personal attention given to the guests. My husband had a special dietary request for meals, and they went out of their way to meet his needs. This was really appreciated. The staff is exceptional in all respects and they go out of their way to be helpful. While at breakfast, our room was made up, we really appreciated that. It seems that Barry and Neil have the running of the inn down to perfection now. Oh the inn is just immaculate too. They also seem to attract a nice group of guests that we enjoyed interacting with. Quite a number of the guests have been to the Inn multiple times.

We are going back too, but this time it will be for both the Friday and Saturday night dinners. Do that if possible. Although there are good restaurants in the area, we found that on Sunday night none of them are open, making dinner options somewhat limited.

We found it very hot while we were there so for our Saturday escapade to beat the heat we visited the Museum of the Shenandoah in Winchester as well as taking a tour of the gardens and the Glen Burnie House first. It is a very interesting museum, worthwhile and we are not particularly "museum people". I read the review first on tripadvisor.com and decided to go.

All in all, we found staying at the Inn to be just what we wanted, a relaxing destination in and of itself with plenty of options nearby for adventure.
