“Excellent Country B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Belle Meade is a beautiful property nestled near Shenandoah National Park, pleasantly situated in the country. The guest quarters are well-maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The owners, Susan and Mike, are exceptionally hospitable and helpful. Susan was proactive about asking us if we'd like reservations for popular restaurants, any allergies or personal preferences we might have, and any activities that we might be interested in in the area. The hot tub was a highlight for us, along with the thoughtful touches like matching his-and-her towels and bathrobs, comfortable chairs on the patio to take in the view of the mountains, and (given our Dec visit) the gorgeous holiday decor throughout the main Victorian house. We enjoyed the peaceful location, Sharp Rock Winery and Thornton River Grill nearby, and friendly conversation with the owners. We highly recommend this property and plan on coming back again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms here are beautiful; they allow dogs in their small cottage just to the side of the...

Green Features: Belle Meade is about as earth-friendly as one can get; most of the food was grown onsite.

I have stayed at Belle Meade B&B several times before.
It is set in the middle of an organic farm.Much of the breakfast is "farm to table"
The house is charming with several choices of rooms/prices.
There is a swimming pool of good size in the back and I am able to swim before
breakfast which for me is a real treat.
The owners are wonderful!!

I just hosted a Mom-Daughter Retreat at Belle Meade, and got nothing but rave reviews from my participants (besides a few insect sightings from a couple of the young girls!). The location is absolutely gorgeous; and the farm makes an outstanding place for kids (and kids-at-heart). We all loved petting the pigs, gathering eggs from the chickens, seeing the cows, and picking veggies from the garden; and we especially loved Susan and Mike's warm hospitality. They were so generous with sharing their time (giving us a farm tour), sharing their space (letting me do cooking classes in the kitchen), and making sure the breakfasts met our food-allergy needs! And those breakfasts...delicious homemade waffles (Susan grounds the flour herself!), very local bacon, delicious frittata made from farm-fresh eggs, yummy muffins...
The schoolhouse was perfect for our group gathering, including a yoga class, a massage workshop, art projects, and meditation. Everything is clean, well-kept and inviting!
I can't wait to come back - both with my family and for another retreat!
Thanks again, Susan and Mike, for sharing your beautiful farm and B&B with us!

We were excited to finally get to enjoy our stay here after having it postponed by snow storms twice this winter. It was worth the wait! The home is lovely and well looked after on beautiful farm land at the foot of Old Rag Mountain. Great place to stay if you want to hike and/or relax and explore the local area. Generous breakfast from the working farm and Susan and Mike are great hosts! Thanks - can't wait to return!

Green Features: locavores with many food items from their own farm, organic toiletries, etc.

Belle Meade is not only a bed and breakfast but a working farm. In addition, the hostess apparently is fully involved in the nearby school. As a result, other than at breakfast, we had virtually no contact with the innkeepers.
The inn was clean and nicely decorated, and the breakfast served was pleasant if unremarkable.
The price did seem rather high for what Belle Meade has to offer.
By the way, there seemed to be a lot of insects in our room, but they were not a especially annoying.

Room Tip: We stayed in the oak room. It costs more than the others, but its size and view more than justify th...

We stayed at the Belle Meade during a weekend of biking and hiking in the local area the weekend of Jan 12-13. The B&B is located a few miles outside of Sperryville on a lovely farm and is a good location to explore the area between Sperryville and Luray and the Shenandoah. You don't have to worry about street noise here! The property also has a huge outdoor pool and a hot tub that is not used in the winter, but would be nice to use in the summer after a long hike. The rooms are very clean, meticulously renovated and elegantly decorated- "no country clutter". We stayed in the Dogwood room, which has a comfortable antique poster bed, 5 large windows with wood trim and a private bath. The bathroom, while small, was functional and very clean.The "breakfast" the next next morning was far beyond what we expected. Susan asked us the night before if we had any dietary restrictions. We requested no meat in the breakfast and was given a truly amazing breakfast. We started with a generous fruit plate of citrus, kiwi, banana and pears. The next two courses came one after the other, straight from the stove or oven, still sizzling. Susan used eggs and greens from the farm in our frittata that also contained mushrooms-deliscious! After, cranberry ginger muffins with flour ground on the farm were brought out. They were light, delicate and melted in our mouths. We took the last two for our hike later in the day. Decaf and regular coffee are available and come from a local roaster. Susan spent time after breakfast conversing with us about the farm and the local community. For a quiet, relaxing weekend getaway, this was exactly what we were looking for.

We have been to Belle Meade a number of times, most recently this past weekend for a family celebration, and each visit has been great. The B&B is pleasing and comfortable, the atmosphere relaxed and the setting--with a view of the top of Old Rag mountain--gorgeous. Susan and Mike are perfect hosts: friendly, interesting and accommodating without hovering. We're city folk, and when we dream of living in the quiet and beauty of the country, this is the place we dream of.
