The property is beautiful! The rooms are charming and filled with character. Very clean and comfortable. Love, love, love the owners, Deb and Mike. Clearly they have never met a stranger. They both go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and special as possible. They have wonderful recommendations of things to do in the area. The breakfast is off-the-charts delicious to the point we thought Mike had been a Professional Chef by trade. Nope! But you wouldn't know it! First B&B experience but can promise it won't be our last and certainly not the last with Deb and Mike. Already recommending this getaway to others!
My wife and I planned a getaway for our anniversary. The Orchard House in Lovingston, VA was the perfect place. Spacious indoors and out with a lovely vineyard, pond and a fire pit making cuddling up with special someone a total delight. Our hosts Mike and Deb were great and always willing to engage in friendly conversation that included plenty of recommendations for local fare, breweries, wineries, and hiking adventures. Accommodations were comfortable and homey. But, the real treat is in the creativity by our hosts of wonderful breakfasts each morning. Delectable gourmet, two course meals were simply killer and full of surprises. The Orchard House presents as a rural late 18, early 19 century farmhouse with folksy accoutrements in each well decorated room. The front porch is accommodating with rockers and a porch swing to sit and view the vivid fall colors. The location sits in the midst of the Blue Ridge mountains along with a myriad of vineyards and breweries. Hiking trails abound and some trails intersect in some way with the Appalachian Trail. I’m a runner so the Blue Ridge Railway Trail nearby in Piney River was a favorite of mine. It offers a flat, wide and well maintained converted railway bed laying alongside a flowing stream through woodlands for a seven mile stretch and 14 mile out and back run, hike or bike. Our stay was for 5 nights and honestly all our expectations were exceeded. I highly recommend the Orchard House for a quick Virginia getaway for couples, families and group events. Check it out!…
It was my first visit to Orchard House, but certainly not my last! Deb and Mike were gracious and delightful hosts. They helped us organize a fabulous wine country weekend. Breakfast was a delicious feast. All in all a fun filled weekend!
I recently visited Orchard House and was amazed by the quiet and peaceful nature of the property. Deb and Mike are wonderful hosts and made us feel like family. There’s nothing better than sitting on the front porch and enjoying the view with a great glass of wine. For those looking for a great getaway during these crazy times, I highly recommend Orchard House.
I cannot say enough good things about the Orchard House! My husband and I booked the Empire room for a lovely weekend in historic Virginia. Deb and Mike have truly thought of everything to make a getaway weekend special. From the delicious breakfasts to relaxing by the fire pit, there is something for everyone to do. The rooms, bathrooms, and inn itself are incredibly clean and COVID safe. Deb and Mike offer incredible suggestions for things to do that make this history teacher very excited to tour. If you are looking for a a relaxing and friendly getaway, Orchard House is the place to be. 10/10 would recommend.
