Our daughter, who went to college nearby, discovered this place, and we stay there every time we're in this area. Unfortunately, since she graduated, we haven't had many opportunities; but one just presented itself recently, and our hosts made us feel like returning royalty. It was even better than we remembered! The lovely breakfasts and cozy accommodations are wonderful, but the innkeepers know that making their guests feel welcome is the secret to keeping a loyal clientele. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Came to Mast Inn for our 15th anniversary. Was upgraded to the best room on site for no extra charge. Breakfast was mind blowing, and the ambience could not have been more romantic. Most memorable trip my bride and I have ever taken.

Room Tip: We got the Loom house. fantastic privacy. Gorgeous views of the property and a tub plenty big for 2.

We were amazed by the atmosphere and hospitality, but the FOOD and DRINKS were so incredible. This was most likely one of the best evenings my wife I have had in our 25 years. Seriously, I know that sounds "over the top", but we really had a delicious meal and a fun experience. Highly recommend! Danielle, Velva, and Rebecca were all so cool and fun, and somewhere behind the scenes, there was a chef who deserves major cudos. The scallop appetizer was incredible, I loved my steak, and my wife devoured her crispy duck. Really great food and a nice night!

Spent a couple days in late October at the Inn. The staff was most welcoming and accommodating - especially Rebecca and Danielle, one of the owners. The Mast Farm Inn is lovely, very nicely restored with a gracious feel. The main building does sit right on the road and the farm, gardens and barn are just across the road . We stayed in Nell's Room, which was was sunny and spacious - very charming. As they clearly mention on their website, the home is historic and has no soundproofing - we found it to be a bit annoying at night. . If that is an issue for you - choose one of the cottages instead. Several are rustic, historic buildings on the property and 5 are new and a short walk or drive up the hill.

The meals were awesome! Simplicity, the restaurant in the Inn, is a farm-to-table restaurant with a fabulous chef who creates a gourmet dinner based on what is freshly available. Don't miss an opportunity to dine here! Breakfasts were bountiful and equally delightful - Danielle's oatmeal is made with star anise and lime peel and is just divine! It was fun to meet and chat with other guests as well.

The countryside is beautiful and there are many sights to see and enjoyable activities nearby. Rebecca and Danielle were both quite helpful with directions and recommendations on the area, and the Blue Ridge Parkway is only 5 or 10 minutes away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return for another visit - will try to book one of the newer cottages next time!

You MUST take the opportunity to dine at the Inns Restaurant called Simplicity. It is AMAZING. We did not stay here BUT we ate here on at least three different days during our stay at Valle Crucis Farm. The chef is spectacular, everything is delicious. The Sunday Brunch was soooo delish! Danielle and her staff are so sweet and accommodating. She can make a mean Daiquiri and my husband loved the "Moonshine". Fabulous food, great history, amazing Inn Keeper and staff and a 5 star chef. Thank you for a great time and we will be back for more divine dishes that inspire our taste buds.

We were a pair of sisters travelling together for a brief get away. We were so happily surprised with the warm, friendly greeting and the beautiful grounds. There was a wedding album there that had gorgeous pics of brides standing in front of the rustic, cute cabins. We were upgraded for free to the Gazebo cottage and it was heaven! The thermostat was connected to the little iron fireplace and it would go on and off as needed according to the temperature we set- so comfortable and charming! We stayed up and played games in the sitting area near the fireplace. There was a hot tub we braved, even tho we hadn't brought swimsuits (shhh!) and in the morning we had coffee on the porch in the rocking chairs.There was a king bed with a dreamy thick feather comforter. I loved the cute, yet tasteful decorations- not too country/antiquey. Really a special getaway. We had the breakfast of course, offered between 8:30 and 9:30. The oatmeal was truly a foodies delight, had great texture and flavor, obviously cream was involved and topped with cooked apples for a sweet , tangy counterpart. The eggs were not especially warm, the sausage a little tough. My sister loved the grits saying they were the best she's had, I however who live in the midwest could take a pass. The biscuit was light and needed no butter (which is saying a lot). Coffee was full-bodied sold up the street by "bald guy".

Room Tip: Probably you'd have a better chance for an upgrade travelling midweek. But the cottages are wort...

Husband booked romantic weekend in one of the free standing buildings. We stayed three days. Excellent service. Excellent atmosphere. I am not sure how you can make oatmeal in the morning taste so good but it was amazing. The hostess even gave me the recipe. Who knew you could put star anise and lime in oatmeal? The surrounding are is lovely with many places to shop, eat, stroll, etc. We are able to walk the grounds and look at the gardens that provide fresh food to the kitchen. Scenery is beautiful. This place is a perfect getaway for couples - special occasion or not. Loved it. Loved it more that he surprised me with it.

Room Tip: We did not stay in the main house.
