Stayed two nights in the Wildflower Room for my fiance's birthday. We had a great time. This was our first true Bed & Breakfast experience, and have zero regrets. The room was well equipped, extremely comfortable, and quiet. The Hosts, Dave and Heidi were very nice and welcoming. As all other guests have mentioned, the views are breathtaking. The hotel faces west, and is situated up on a hill overlooking a valley, so you can see for miles. The second level is one massive deck that's accessible by all guests, and has a bunch of rocking chairs, tall chairs, and swings, perfect for soaking in the afternoon sun and witnessing some gorgeous sunsets (porch faces west!). The room we stayed in was very large, a king bed, two lounge chairs, a small desk, and a small mini fridge. It also had a large bathroom and an additional sink that was separate from the bath itself. Very nice and I'm not sure there's anything I can say that was displeasing. The bed was very comfortable and had clean crisp linens. Also, since we're both part-time students we had to use the wi-fi on Friday night and found that it was easy to access and speedy. Not very important for a romantic B&B, but nice to have in case something comes up or you need to do some research.
The breakfasts were also very tasty. Very fresh fruit, and nice out of the ordinary meals (baked oatmeal and stuffed french toast, both very very good). I will say that in the mornings, there could be a very short wait if the place is booked up. But with numerous tables, some couches/chairs and a back deck, there's plenty of places to relax and wait over a cup of coffee. Also you can play with the cute and gentle dog, Katie.
One thing few people mention is the location of this B&B. Its right off of I-64, just over Afton Mountain west of Charlottesville, 5 min from downtown Waynesboro, and 15 minutes from Staunton (highly recommend!). Its also extremely close to the Western Monticello Wine Trail boasting numerous wineries and breweries. Its really the perfect location for those who just want to sit and relax, or those who want to discover new towns or go wine tasting. And since its right next to 64, its easy to find and access. Don't worry you dont notice the interstate noise, give the significant tree barrier between the B&B and the highway, and the fact that its up on a hill.
