Vanquility Acres Inn

Reviewed January 7, 2014

I lived in the cottage for 4 months during an internship in Bedford and I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay. Ellen and John's hospitality were second to none and they were always available to lend a hand with anything I needed. As an elite cyclist I especially loved it here for the cycling terrain; the proximity to the mountains is unbeatable! Speaking of the mountains, the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the Vanquility Inn is absolutely breathtaking - especially in October when the leaves are changing. Bedford itself is a charming small town with a nice downtown with shops and great food. I will miss living here, and I hope to stay here again sometime down the road!

In short: wonderful people, unrivaled cycling, and spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. What's not to love?

The perfect place to stay for a cycling adventure on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Plenty of room and a great Jacuzzi to rehab your legs! Even a room that is perfect for storing rigs. Stayed here 2 years in a row and don't plan on visiting without staying here.

Room Tip: Just ask Ellen.

We visited Natural Bridge drove about 45 mins mostly on Blue Ridge with best fall leaves to here.
It is a 14 year old ranch house built as a B&B, with wonderful views of Peaks of Otter near the nice town of Bedford. Greeted warmly by John and shown around. Our well equipped room had a sun porch enclosed with views. Chilly enjoyed the electric fireplace. Ellen prepared a wonderful breakfast enough to more than get us started. She is a great hostess and innkeeper enjoyed talking with her. We arrived on a Sunday evening not many dining options open in Bedford other than chains, ate at Ruby Tuesday On the road Monday we paid our respects at the Bedford D Day memorial, well worth visiting.

Room Tip: Garden suite with enclosed porch with views of pond, goats and Peaks of Otter.

You could not ask for a nicer place. Ellen and John make you feel like family from the first step in their beautiful home. We had a great time, great food and delightful conversations with all. I can't think of anything else they could do to make it any better then it was. This is a place that makes you want to keep coming back too, time and time again.

I was in a pinch as I was in town for a funeral and all of the local hotels were sold out. Fortunately I found this B&B an am so glad I did. The view if the mountains is so beautiful and automatically relaxes you. Very tranquil setting and the el

We had a large group with unusual needs, and they went well out of their way to accommodate us. Very courteous, friendly, and the food was excellent. There was a nice view of Peaks of Otter and even had an evening goat crossing. Will be back if in the area again.
