Mike and Deb were wonderful hosts and ensured we had everything we needed. Our stay was very relaxing and peaceful. The food was great, especially the eggs benedict with asparagus. We stayed in the Northern Spy room, which has fantastic views. We enjoyed our morning coffee sitting on the front porch enjoying the fabulous view of the mountains. We opted... More

Home from our wonderful anniversary weekend getaway at Orchard House Bed & Breakfast in Lovingston, VA. It started with our arrival at 4pm Saturday at the Apple Blossom House. Awaiting in the Cascade Room was a beautiful cheese, cracker, and grape platter with a bottle of wine and homemade banana bread. We then met our wonderful hosts for the weekend... More

This inn was suggested when I asked a friend about a nice place to go for my birthday weekend near wineries. What a find! A beautiful old home with well appointed rooms. We had a room with a queen bed (so comfortable!) and a sizable private bathroom. Out the windows we saw their vineyard and spacious front lawn. The new... More

Staying at The Orchard House was a wonderful experience and certainly one we'll repeat. It is very reasonably priced which makes it easy to contemplate a trip back. The property is beautiful and makes for quite a relaxing vacation. The owners recently bought the property, so ignore all the reviews about the previous owner and his rules. Michael and Deb... More

My son and I recently traveled from Rhode Island through Virginia as we visited potential colleges in the region, and our journey led us to a two-night stay at Orchard House. The location was perfectly situated between multiple universities, and the tree-lined drive for miles and miles was absolutely gorgeous! There were endless antique stores along the route, too, and...

The photos from the website, while beautiful, simply don't do the Orchard House justice. We fell in love the moment we turned into the driveway, saw the bunnies scampering and heard the frogs croaking. We had to arrive a bit late due to unexpected traffic, but that was not a problem. Mike answered the phone cheerily, and Deb greeted us... More

The property has fabulous views ,spacious and comfortable rooms. Your host Deb and Mike Verplank make you feel right at home while catering to your every need. The breakfast is always delicious and the evening cookies are worth the wait! Don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful front porch overlooking the vineyards.!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Orchard House B&B! An historic farmhouse built in 1874, it was once the location of a thriving apple orchard for many years. Start your visit with a glass of wine and homemade cookies on our front porch. Stroll around our picturesque 14 acres and watch for the resident bunnies scampering across the lawn. While at the Orchard House, you can choose to be as busy or as relaxed as your mood decides. Enjoy our chauffeured wine tours, hike the famous Crabtree Falls, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, tour Monticello, explore the various antique shops nearby, visit the local orchards or swimming quarries, check out the multitude of wineries, breweries, and distilleries. Or choose to lay in the comfy hammocks gazing up at the endless skies, take a dip in the pool, stroll through our one-acre vineyard, relax in the new gazebo, listen to the frogs chirping from the pond, identify the beautiful birds that flit from one birdfeeder to the next, read a book in one of the many Adirondack chairs that grace the front lawn, rock on the sprawling front porch while soaking up our amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. No matter what you choose to do while visiting us at the Orchard House, we guarantee your time will be rejuvenating, memorable, and filled with good food, good memories, and new friends. Relax and rejuvenate in an elegant country atmosphere. Leave feeling better than when you arrived! ... more   less
