My husband and I attended the Apple Festival 2016. It was a very nice festival but it rained the entire day making it quite messy for the craft vendors. We would love to come back another year and hope for better weather. We did not stay at the Lodge but stayed in a motel in Culpepper and enjoyed the beautiful... More

If you are looking for fine, luxurious accommodations and fancy cusiene, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking to go back in time and enjoy a beautiful setting in the country and be served 3 plentiful country cooking meals a day, then look no further. We have been there twice in the fall, wrapping our... More

I stayed at the main hotel during 2016 Apple festival weekend. Accommodations are old and dated. A bit rustic for many travelers with cell phone communication here all but non existent. The town of Syria is very remote nestled in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If a 7-Eleven were opened here it would be the biggest store in... More

I have lived 2 hrs away from Graves Mt Lodge and never visited until this past weekend for the Apple Festival. It was amazing. I loved every bit of it. Have made lodging reservations for 2017.

After a couple of rainy weekends, we decided to hit the road for the (what we thought) was the last weekend for the apple festival. Saturday was a beautiful day and we knew it would be busy.

I get old and rustic and quaint. I too am old and rustic and quaint, but even I have moved beyond the 1940s, which was the vintage of our old cabin, which had bugs, dog scratches on the doors, ripped furniture, and no shampoo in the bathroom.

I stayed at Graves Mountain Inn Aug 19-22 in connection with an organized group event. Inside, it has the feel of a 1950's motel. That could be a good or a bad thing depending if you have nostalgia for the 50;s. A clear plus is the location, set on a hillside with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valley....

Dear Larry, It is always unfortunate to hear one of our guest had a disappointing experience.
