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.

Room Tip: The Wildflower room, while fantastic, is a bit pricey as it connects to the 2nd story deck and has a...

We stayed at one of the new single couple cabins and loved the experience. The cabins have a fully stocked kitchen, a screened deck and a hot tub for our personal use. The views are amazing, the breakfast meals are delicious, and the owners are so personable and helpful. It's a great getaway if you want a quite mountain retreat or if you want to do wine and brewery tastings.

Room Tip: Kings Family and Grace Estates were great vineyards to visit. Also, the Blue Mountain Brewery was g...

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Wildflower room in the main Inn. The room was spacious, had a breathtaking view of the Shenadoah Valley and the bed provided the best sleep that we have had in a long time. The Innkeepers - Heidi and Dave - couldn't be more gracious hosts and the breakfasts alone are worth the stay. We would highly recommend the Inn if you are in the area. We also enjoyed the three brewpubs that are nearby - great food and great beer.

My husband and I stayed in one of the new cabins over the past weekend and words cannot adequately convey how amazing this place is - the setting is beautiful, it is close enough to everything you want to do, but far enough away that you feel such peace.

Dave, Heidi, and dog Katie make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Breakfast was delicious and a great way to start the day.

The cabins are like adult treehouses – private screened decks looking west for amazing sunsets (including screening under the deck – whoever thought of that is a genius!), welcoming Jacuzzi, comfortable bed, fireplace, TV with Dish Network, a full kitchen and coffee maker, as well as a bathroom with heated floors. The cabins truly are a wonderful, couple-centered retreat.

We really didn’t want to leave and we will definitely be back!

Just enjoyed an overnight stay in the new Cabins at The Iris Inn. Beautiful setting in the woods, with fireplace, tv, hot tub, small kitchen and all of the modern details to spoil you! Great location for a multi-night stay to enjoy the many nearby wineries, Staunton and Charlottesville. Heidi and Dave are gracious guests so enjoy the wine social time in the main part of the inn.
Thanks again for a great stay and for tickets to the Virginia Fly Fishing festival!

We use the reviews on Trip Advisor to help us make choices about travel. It's difficult some reviews range all over the map. I have pretty high expectations so here is my review of the Iris Inn. The Iris Inn is a lovely, lovely place to stay. We stayed in one of the cabins/tree houses and thought it was wonderful. Very new modern décor. The cabins are a bit small but extremely thoughtfully designed and decorated. Even the lighting is smart and purposeful! There is a hidden washer and dryer and brand new and efficiently spaced kichennette. The bathroom is large with a heated floor (really neat) and multi shower head shower that is very open and bright. You can enjoy the great fireplace, comfy double recliners and watch a large screen TV. The entire cabin has great views of the Shenandoah Valley. You can enjoy a brand new hot tub on the front porch with cleaver access through both the living area as well as the shower. / Bathroom. An unbelievable view of the Shenandoah Valley. There is a relaxing screened-in porch with a hot tub that is perfect. An amazing breakfast is included in the main house. The only negatives we could find was there isn't a stool or step to get in and out of the hot tub. We will definitely be back. You can't go wrong staying here.

My husband and I began our 40th anniversary road trip at The Iris Inn. We were warmly greeted by Dave & Heidi and their border collie Katie. Upon entering the inn, we couldn't help but smell the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies that are available at any time of the day...or nite! Our room, the Pine Room is more beautiful & inviting that we could have imagined. We had a spectacular view of the valley and mountains from the porch right out our door. It was a bit chilly so we really didn't get to enjoy sitting on the swing...taking in the vistas...this time! There most definitely will be a next time. We've never experienced such warm hospitality at a bed and breakfast. Pleasant conversation by a warm fire with a glass of wine - it doesn't get much better than that! Breakfast was delicious as well.

We highly recommend The Iris Inn!
