The Inn at Vaucluse Spring
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We found the Inn rather by accident - and it turned out to be about the best travel accident we've ever had. As previous reviewers have said, the grounds are lovely - and one can walk, sit at a pond, sit on a lawn under trees or lounge at the pool (or swim of course!) The rooms are excellent and the food is outstanding. It is also excellently located and we did a good hike on day and went to a concert at the Castleton Festival the next. We rarely go back to the same place as we want to try different things but the great accomodation at the Inn is a reason to break this practice.

Room Tip: Some rooms in the main house are in the basement - they're fine and comfortable but if you want...

The B&B is a perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend. The land and different buildings are beautiful. There is lots of wildlife and a swimming pool !!! Located less than an hour drive from the DC area is a plus. We like going to a show at the Conservatory or Wayside one night. Barry and Neil are wonderful.

Room Tip: we traveled with 3 other couples and we chose the Chumley house with 4 rooms (but NO king size beds...

Whenever I write a review, I try to give a full picture. The Inn at Vaucluse is an elegant getaway, especially for couples, with beautiful grounds, welcoming hosts, and attention to detail. We stayed over a Saturday night and enjoyed the six-course meal prepared by the chef, who gave us an overview of each course while we had drinks with the other guests on the back porch. There are many positives, and I definitely would recommend the Inn. However, in the interest of full disclosure, I would add a few minor negatives: while the presentation of the dinner was excellent and a couple of courses, in a particular the black drum, were unique and memorable, the meal as a whole didn't have the "wow" factor; the Inn's wifi doesn't work except in the front hallway, and the bed in our room sagged in the middle, which presents issues when its a queen-sized bed rather than a king. That said, the positives far outweight the negatives and we intend to return to the Inn in the future.

We discovered The Inn at Vaucluse Spring online while searching for a relaxing and elegant B&B trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We currently live just outside of Pittsburgh, but miss our former residence in the DC area, and have always felt more at home in Maryland and Virginia. After a 4 hour drive down into gorgeous countryside, we were warmly greeted by Neil, who gave us our key to our room in the Chumleigh home. Our room (the Zane Room) was clean, beautiful and inviting. My husband loved the fact that he could fetch his coffee each morning downstairs in the keeping room and enjoy it with other guests while relaxing on the screened porch. Breakfast both days was a gourmet treat - as was dinner on Saturday evening. We highly recommend making reservations for the dinner, as it was amazing food and service, plus wonderful company with the other guests we enjoyed getting to know. I enjoyed swimming and sunning at the beautiful pool that afternoon. The gardens, the views, the innkeepers and staff - it all made for a memorable experience on our special weekend. We will definitely return :)

What a lovely, quiet inn in the northern Virginia countryside. Hosts Barry and Neil were charming and gracious. We were in the Strother room with it's king size bed and plenty of room for a most enjoyable stay. Saturday night dinner and Sat & Sun breakfasts were excellent. The hospitality was superb and the environment delightful. Close to Shenandoah National Park and many wineries, there is much to do in the immediate area. The great thing about it all, though, was the immediate and welcoming warmth we felt on arrival. We were truly treated like guests in a home. We already have reservations for a return visit.

Our experience at the Inn at Vaucluse Spring will not be forgotten soon. We were blessed to meet and visit with your amazing hostess Michelle, who treated us like family during our entire stay. What a wonderful respite, nothing less than fabulous would describe how we felt during our stay in the Strathmore Room. The room was vastly spacious with warm colors, a huge fire place and large windows that provided spectacular views. We look forward to our next visit this fall for another reunion with the Vaucluse Family.

Best Regards,
Howard & Cynthia

We stayed here twice - on the way out from Dulles and on our return from North Carolina. The website provides a very accurate representation of the inn, but even so, when we actually woke up to the beautiful view in the morning, it was spectacular. This is a perfect place for rest and relaxation.

We stayed in the Chumley Homeplace. We had a very spacious room with nice sized bath and Gilchrist and Soames amenities. As it was summer, we didn't need to make use of the fireplace.
The bed was pretty comfortable, my only complaint would be that there was some noise from the air conditioning unit located outside the building. If you're a heavy sleeper, you probably wouldn't notice it.

Breakfast in the morning was great and the innkeepers made us feel very welcome. A late check in (after regular hours because of our flight) wasn't a problem, they left us a note and the room was unlocked.

We enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend to anyone considering a visit to this part of Virginia.

Room Tip: Check the website to help make your choice - very accurate descriptions of accommodations.
