Stayed at the Inn for two nights and had one dinner. Location is beautiful - very nice surroundings. The rooms are OK, but nothing special. For example, our cottage had a small closet and no dressers for clothes. Not necessarily a big deal -- but for this price, there should be more storage space. And it's the little things -- like ceiling molding that does not go all the way to the end of a wall, bed linen that is just average quality, a window a/c unit that had to be left on all night, or an entrance driveway that is in desperate need of repair -- that start to add up.
Dinner was good - and the wine pairings were excellent - but dinner was overpriced. Elmwood at Sparks in Orange was much better.
Felt at times like the staff -- especially at meal times - was just going through the motions. And, again, it was little things that left a less-than-high-quality feel. For example, I had a very hard time getting confirmation back from the Inn for the reservation and dinner. Took three calls and an e-mail. And breakfast is served at a single time -- you also couldn't go in to the dining room for dinner or breakfast until serving time. Not very accommodating.
Not trying to be a diva or a real complainer. The Inn not a bad place at all. It's just that we've been to many inns in Virginia for roughly the same cost and have found the rest of them to be of higher quality. At these prices, a B&B or inn should deliver high value. There are simply better Virginia inns at this price level.
