“We will be back!!! Fabulous B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2011

I have stayed in hotel and B&B's all over the world. I can honestly say this was the best B&B that I have experienced.
The rooms are clean but best of all they are Dog friendly. Colonel was so happy and he became the Kilmarnock Inn dog being spoiled by all who saw him.
The Innkeepers and staff are so friendly. Cheryl is the best Chef every and if you are a bacon snobb like me you will love this place.

Just returned from a stay at the Kilmarnock Inn -- it really is in a nice location in the center of town so if you like to go somewhere and park your car for a bit, really do have quite a few restaurants close by -- nice ones as well -- we would recommend the ThaiPot and Town Bistro. Plus the Inn serves dinner, and if anything like the breakfasts, the food will be really outstanding.

We stayed in the Tyler room, very nice. Comfortable. Sun bears down o the porch in the evening, so if you like to sit out, would recommend choosing another room. They do have an outside courtyard, very nice, however, they do not keep the furniture cleaned off. I have been to other B&Bs where the furniture is wiped down daily.

We would stay here again and probably will... Just need more time for getaway weekends!

I stayed here in connection with a family reunion and was very pleased. The core of the inn is a lovely old house on a side street, but the owners have taken the area behind it to build a cluster of cottages surrounding a tiny lawn, with a sidewalk around and through it, and most of the space filled with flower borders. Each cottage has its own little porch. My room was very comfortable, and the bath was nice as well. Breakfast was either from a menu or from the buffet; I chose the latter because the foods were less elaborate. This inn is of a size where you will have more contact with the staff than with the owners, but all the staff are very friendly and helpful, so I did not feel like that was a problem. I asked the night before if they could possibly make me a sandwich to take with me the following day, as the drive home was going to be a long one, and they were very agreeable. They thought ham and cheese on homemade bread was nothing special, but I thought it was delicious! I would recommend this inn without reservation.

A set of rooms named for VIP's - Virgina's important people who went on to greater things, namely the presidency. The buildings and landscaping are beautiful. The room we were in for one night, The Berkley (don't know the Virginia connection) was fine - it had everything you would expect in any hotel room, plus a balcony that looked out onto the courtyard. The personnel, especially the proprietor and town police chief, Sean, was very kind and obliging. The breakfast -served to the public in a lovely front dining area in the main house - was part of the daily rate and quite tasty. We had the option of ordering off the menu (which we did) or taking part in the very southern Sunday brunch. Though I would have loved to viewed the other rooms, we did not, though I believe there are tours of the rooms if requested. While our stay at the hotel was positive - though I think at $195, the price was too steep . . . I would suggest a price around the $130 range - the surrounding town wasn't much to write home about. We did get to dangle our feet in one of the nearby rivers and, on our way out of town the next day, stop off to wade in the Chesapeake Bay. So, to summarize, the hotel was probably the best and nicest part of the town. While I wouldn't stay in Kilmarnock again, I would consider staying at the Inn again - if the price were reduced and they had moved to the coast of Virginia.

Do to limited accomodation space most B&B's cater to individuals & couples rather than groups but Sean McDonough and his staff went beyond my expectations in making our mixed group (sixteen rooms, 32 guests) feel welcomed and appreciated. The rooms are clean, comfortable and gorgeous and face a beautifully kept courtyard, the breakfasts fantastic and ALL the personnel friendly and hospitable. We spent our four days sightseeing in Northern Neck but returned in the evenings for delicious dinners and entertainment provided by Sean and his crew without having to leave the Kilmarnock Inn. If you are a couple or family or friends just wanting to get out of Dodge for a few days this is the place. Or a tour operator or meeting planner with a small group and wish to provide your clientele with a delightful experience call Sean. A great INN in a great section of Virginia. I can only imagine it on Sanibel Island!
