What first got my attention when I was booking a place, naturally, were the llamas. The drive from Lexington to the inn was short but beautiful, particularly when you turn off route 11 and onto the gravel road to the inn. There is a lovely creek and forest along the way and you are likely to see deer and rabbits... More

I'm in a quandary as we want to keep the newly-opened cottage all to ourselves forever and I realize if I say too many great things about it then we may get shut out sometime in the future!!! Oh well, the truth will come out sooner or later so here goes....our experience was so great we were blown away. OK,... More

Carl, thanks so much for all you kind words. Not that you will need to know personally, but the twin bed in the second BR has a trundle underneath so it sleeps two in addition to the Master BR. More

When we first turned off the main road to begin the final drive to the inn, we were daunted by the narrow gravel road that went on and on and on. But very quickly we were enchanted by the sights, sounds, and smells of the woods and the creek. It became a favorite part of our day as we drove... More

The Applewood Inn is a great place to go if you're looking to get away from it all. It's remote, quiet, and has beautiful scenery. We stayed in the European room, which had a separate inside sitting area, hot tub that opens to the outdoors, and a patio just outside where we ate takeout dinner and had wine. There was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Applewood Inn in mid-April. We had a lovely time. Chris and Linda are great hosts. The property is large and full of beautiful plants and rolling hills. The llamas are fun to watch and going on a hike with them is pretty cool (Striker is the best ;) ). We stayed in the... More

We had an excellent stay at Applewood Inn. The hosts were very helpful. We had a flat tire when we were leaving and they helped us unloading our bags (we had a lot of packages since we were moving furniture from Atlanta to NY!!) and they helped us fixing the tire. The hosts had also really good stories about passing... More

We love Chris and Linda and the llamas! The grounds are beautiful, they are so hospitable and Chris is a great conversator, while Linda isn't as social we adore her art work, her obvious love for their B&B and her company. We feel at home here and really enjoy the hilltop views of the Shenandoah Valley while getting close and... More

What a wonderful experience! Chris and Linda are the most lovely hosts we could have asked for! They provided stimulating conversation, AMAZING food (fantastic pancakes and THE best omelet I've ever eaten), and the llama trekking was just...perfect. Our (very reasonably priced) room was lovely as well. (We loved the hot tub!) And the scenery, both at Applewood and the... More
