Two years ago, my wife and I stayed in two separate chateaus in Bordeaux to tour the vineyards and generally spoil ourselves. We spent a fraction on our trip to Virginia wine country and had as fantastic of an experience. The Chestnut hill B&B was a big reason for this.
The B&B itself is located 40 miles northeast of charlottsville and provides a great jumping off location to tour approximately 40 vinyards, Montecello, Montplier and several quaint towns scattered through the rolling Virginia hills.
The property itself is located on a secluded lot that overlooks the town of Orange and houses several newly renovated rooms in addition to a “pub” that serves as a common room during evening appetizers.
The property alone would make this a good B&B, but Troy and Kathleen set it over the top. They were very helpful in planning outings, recommending restaurants, and suggesting wine tastings. The food served at the B&B is the highlight. Each of the three appetizers we had could have been on the chefs tasting menu that at the nearby restaurant (nothing to sneeze at itself). Will recommend and hopefully return.
