“Great Place! Excellent Food!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

The Wife and I went here for a weekend getaway. This place exceeded my expectations. The room was great, service was awesome, and the food was one of the best I ever had. I have been to many different places and this is one best. You will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Master Suite is where it is at!

Just about the most fabulous Inn we have ever been to. We went with another couple to visit some wineries, and arrived late (although I wish we arrived earlier). Every corner was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Our butler Steven was wonderful, great personality and very professional. Everything was great down to the last detail. Can't wait to return and spend more time. We also had dinner with our own room in the restaurant. Both delicious and original. What a find!

What a beautiful Inn! My sister, who lives in Orange, and I, a Richmond resident, have wanted to visit the Inn for quite some time. We watched the renovations taking place and found it truly was a transformation! We arrived on Sunday, December 9th, wanting just to look around and have a glass of wine in the Pub. Upon arriving, we found the Inn about to close, they had a special visitor that day! Seems Santa was in town. The staff graciously allowed us to sit by the fireplace and order a glass of wine - while the Redskins won over the Ravens (sorry Niki, my Baltimore loving daugher!). We finished our wine and Lisa, the wonderful bartender, asked if we wanted a tour! We are still reeling over the wonderful rooms, the beautiful landscaping, the great hospitality! We are coming back for more! Lisa, thank you for the great tour!

Room Tip: Lisa was an excellent tour guide! We could tell she was so proud to be a part of such a wonderful f...

After visiting for business on a couple of occasions, we were eager to stay at the inn for a little time away from it all. Because of our familiarity, it was hard selecting the room we'd want (they're all great in their own way), but ultimately decided upon the Master Suite (why not go big?). The on-call butler Steven helped us with our luggage, and got our preference for when we'd like our complimentary beignets to arrive the next morning. I had sent ahead flowers for my wife earlier that day, and the staff graciously unpacked them and placed them on the bed for when we arrived.

We enjoyed drinks with other guests we had just met in the cool night air by the awesome fire pit prior to dinner. Dinner itself was amazing. Creative, yet tasty, our tapas-style meal hit all the right notes and finished with fried pie of the day, in this case apple & cheddar. Too often you find creative chefs who make dishes for creativity's sake and less for the taste. Here it was in perfect balance. As if that weren't enough, upon returning to our room we found a sweet treat, along with Forte tea and hot water in a thermos waiting for us.

The next morning right on schedule Steven delivered several beignets covered in powdered sugar in a brown paper bag along with coffee and green tea for my wife. We requested the green tea the day prior when we were asked what time we'd like our beignets and coffee, and it was a great wake-up. The only way this could have been better the second morning is if they had remembered that and delivered green tea again with the coffee, but we had to ask for that separately. Even better will be if they keep our preferences on file for an inevitable return visit. Every single staff member was very gracious and professional.

The staff alerts guests to available information only when that information might be needed. This is helpful to avoid information overload, trying to remember everything told all at once, but at the same time we didn't realize the kitchen was open for a full breakfast if we wanted it. After asking, and not yet wanting to get out of our PJs, we eagerly took advantage of room service.

We had dinner off-site our second night and while the meal was fine, we immediately regretted our decision, wishing we were back at the Willow Grove Inn. So we did the next best thing and, since the pub was pretty crowded when we arrived back, ordered dessert for room service and ate it on the leather rug (seriously, you need to see this thing) next to the gas fireplace. The fireplace did a good job of putting out adequate heat, but not so much that we felt overheated.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and, because we didn't really want to leave, had a lunch of burger and battered (yes, battered) grilled cheese, tomato, and bacon sandwich. Decadent? Yes. But that's what the Willow Grove Inn is all about and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Loved the Master Suite, especially with the private access to the entire 2nd floor porch. One tip fo...

This was our first trip to Virginia and had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this amazing inn. The owners have gone to great lengths to make this a world class Inn, they are truly amazing people. The attention to detail in every aspect is mind boggling. Wed. evening was Tapas night . This was a super way to get an idea of the kitchens capabilities. Wow!!! what ever we tasted was superb.
The staff were first class and attended to ones every need. The coffee and beignets served in our room in the morning was a crowning touch. We will tell all our Canadian friends and we will certainly be back. Ron and Christine

The food and service at the restaurant is fantastic. The burger is a main favorite and is reasonably priced. The bartenders Cody & Lisa are friendly, sincere, and are just great to converse with. Always a great time. We visit once or twice a month. Try the Sunday Brunch!

The ambience and the staff at the Inn at Willow Grove are by far the best in the Piedmont. If you are nearby and do not take the the time to stop in you will have missed out. A shout out to the bartenders Cody and Lisa! Top notch. Oh yeah thier cave aged cheddar burger is a must. Enjoy !!!
