“Fantastic B&B!!!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

From the moment we walked into Holladay House, we fell in love with the place, and the Innkeeper, Sharon! The house is tastefully filled with antiques, the room was perfection, including our own private covered patio. We were pleasantly surprised with the 2 course breakfast (the best Blueberry Crumble - all homemade - we've ever had, and the quiche truly superb). Sharon made our stay so much more enjoyable just by the friendly energy she possesses and the interest she showed in us! If you ever get to Orange, VA, this is a must.

Wow! What compliments! We're so excited you enjoyed your breakfast - we have to give lots of credit to the local berries and eggs - they sure do make stuff taste better :) We hope to see you again soon - we had a wonderful time hosting you :)

Unfortunately, we only spent one night here whilst on a bicycle trip. This is an historic, traditional and well appointed house. Sharon, one of the innkeepers, is a delight. She is charming, helpful and effervescent. She immediately makes you feel at home. After getting us settled in our room she asked about our breakfast preferences and said she would make a different hot breakfast for each of us since my husband likes sweet stuff and I like savory things in the morning. The breakfast was delicious as was the coffee which is roasted specially for them.
Our room was clean and comfortable with nice bath supplies and a comfy bed.
This is THE place to stay in Orange. Worth a detour if you are visiting the Virginia Piedmont.

We love having bicyclists stay with us - you all have such a great perspective of the gorgeous countryside in this region - what a great way to experience this area! Maybe during your next visit we can get you going horseback riding :D

We have stayed at the Holladay House twice, and loved it both times! This charming 19th century house is cozy and inviting, with warm decorating and atmosphere. The character of the place is delightful, thanks to the positive energy of the host, Sharon, and her father in law, Darnell, and mother in law,
Cathy. (sp)
Breakfast is a masterful treat created by Sharon's gourmet hand. Fresh locally sourced ingredients are presented beautifully for a wholesome and satisfying meal, punctuated by lively conversation with the hosts and other guests. We love this place, the people who run it, and recommend it most highly to anyone!

This was our first time here. We really enjoyed it. What a great find. The accommodations were delightful and comfortable. Also very clean. Sharon's breakfasts were amazing. She was very gracious. She gave us recommendations for dinner and also a suggestion of where we might go to get something we could bring to our friends' gathering. We will definitely be back. .

My husband and I just got back from a fabulous romantic weekend spent at the Holladay House in Orange, Virginia. We stayed in the Garden Room, which has a king sized bed, and a chromatherapy whirlpool tub big enough for two.

This room is on the lower level and feels very private and secluded. It is underneath the kitchen, so you won't have anyone directly overhead at night. And in the mornings, we only heard the least little teensy weensy bit of creaky floor above our heads as they prepared breakfast.

The room and the entire B&B was immaculate. Every single detail has been attended to and everything is sparklingly clean. The bathroom in the Garden Room has been recently renovated and it has a pleasing cottage style. Overall, the Garden Room is decorated in soft olives and rich plums, and was very relaxing.

The shower has a rainshower shower head that is mounted as close to the ceiling as they could and it was fine for my hubby who is 5' 10". There is room in the shower for two and there is a bench seat at one end.

The mirror over the sink is somewhat small but big enough to work in and the lighting is excellent for shaving or applying or removing makeup. There is another full-length mirror just to the left of the chromatherapy whirlpool tub that was also welcome.

The lighting over the tub can be adjusted. It can go full strength bright - bright enough to clean by, or to use the nearby full length mirror. Or you can adjust it low for mood lighting.

The Holladay House arranged a couples massage for us, in our room. Robyn and Alice were wonderful and the massages were very relaxing.

For breakfast, we were treated to honey carmelized peaches with handmade whipped cream as the first course, followed by creme brulee french toast as the main course. I cannot even describe in words how scandalously yummy it was! So delicious!

Sharon was also very gracious in accommodating our specific food issues and needs.

The Garden Room has a private porch and a small sitting area. The wicker chairs in the sitting area are very comfortable. There is a TV and DVD player - and plenty of movies to choose from in one of the common rooms - but we didn't even turn it on.

There were soft, thick terry robes, a tea bath if you'd like one, a gorgeous matelasse coverlet, battenburg lace style shower curtain, cherry scented shampoo, cucumber olive oil body bar, lavender olive oil hand soap, complimentary makeup remover, and more.

We mainly interacted with Sharon and Darnell, and both of them were delightful. Very warm and personable. Great sense of humor. You can tell that they truly take pride in what they do and that they pay attention to everything. Thank you for a fabulous stay!

The Holladay House B&B is the perfect place for a quick get away from the big city. Very quaint, warm & charming. Being first timers staying at a B&B, the Holladay House was the perfect choice for us. I loved the little touches such as the make-up remover facial wipes (Not just 1 but 2 are in the bathroom!); the free lip balm with their logo on it; to the modern self-serve coffee & tea service.

Sharon is the ultimate hostess! She makes you feel right at home. There is nothing like being greeted with freshly baked homemade cookies! Sam & his Dad are great too! They are full of local visitor site seeing information.

The location is close enough to visit wineries and Montpelier. Not to be missed is the George Gilmore cabin across the street from Montpelier.

The Holladay House B&B has set the bar high for our next B&B experience.

We are so glad you tried out a B&B - and we're even more glad you enjoyed it so much! It's true we're not that far from a few major cities - a short drive takes you worlds away! We're all about the "little touches" throughout the inn - it's fun to pamper our guests :)

Just stayed here overnight before picking our kids up from camp on Saturday morning. We had five star service all around, from the cleanliness to the food to the warmth in the inn itself. We had our "mini-cation" as our kids had theirs!
