“Great weekend away for couples!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My hubby and I just stayed here for an extended weekend getaway. It was an easy and scenic drive from where we lived in southern md. Upon arrival we were impressed with not only the beautiful location but also the clean and well kept property. We called ahead to notify them of my many allergies, they accommodated and I had a wonderful breakfast made for me every morning. They also took care of booking in room massages and recommended local restaurants that catered to allergies.

The cabin we stayed in was nothing short of awesome! It was private, clean, modern and packed every luxury into a loft style area-complete with kitchenette, private screened in porch with hot tub, heated floors and a lovely view. We enjoyed the options available of local destinations to visit as well- including hiking, scenic drives, national parks, charloettesville and Staunton. Plenty of dining options, shopping, galleries and the fun frontier museum. We could definitely have stayed in the cabin all weekend as well- it was so comfortable! Looking forward to making this an annual couples trip :)

Room Tip: We loved the privacy of the cabins and the hot tub on the porch:)

The Iris was a great anniversary getaway weekend. The breakfast was excellent! We truly enjoyed the views and wonderful porch to relax on. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the entire facility. The location was excellent for sampling many of the local wineries. Too bad we couldn't get any good fog reports as our planned hikes kept getting scrapped.

All the reviews are true!
We planned our anniversary weekend through TripAdvisor, and glad we did.
Our check-in with Heidi was easy and pleasurable.

Our room was fantastic, and far larger than we expected. Everything was clean, fresh and modern right down to the flat-screen -- though we didn't even turn it on as the sunset views couldn't be beat.

The main room (for breakfast and lounging) was comfortable and not tacky like some B&Bs. Plus who can beat warm chocolate chip cookies whenever ya' want.

Breakfasts: Filling and enjoyable (oh and we had a choice one morning - that was nice)
Parking: Paved and ample
Hospitality: Dave and Heidi has this down pat
Food: Yum!
Rooms: Perfect for a great weekend
Ambiance: Felt like we'd gone away for the weekend to visit our friends

Nearby: Wineries, breweries, hiking rails, cycling

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing west - unless you're an ornithologist who enjoys the woodland birds. A...

My fiance and I stayed in one of the cabins for our "mini-moon" this week. It was a very relaxing stay! The cabins are very luxurious, with amenities including a "rainforest" shower, private jacuzzi and full washer/dryer (perfect after a day of hiking!) Breakfast was delicious, and available from 8-9:30 each day. The inn owners, Heidi and Dave, are charming and gave us great suggestions (go to The Greenleaf Grill for dinner!) Overall a very comfortable stay!

Room Tip: We ended up staying in Cabin 2 because of some electrical problems with Cabin 4 (which we requested...

Iris Inn has everything going for it...spectacular views, delicious breakfasts and friendly hosts. We stayed in the Pine room...couldn't be happier. After meals at the Green Leaf and Mill Street Bistro, we sat on the deck swing and watched fabulous sunsets. Need to point out that the decor is fresh and clean. No knick knacks and teddy bears...just tasteful and stylish. Book a room here and you won't be sorry.

Room Tip: Great dinners at Mill Street Bistro in Staunton and Green Leaf in Waynesboro.

We stayed in one of the new cabins! Is was spacious and modern, and had everything we could want . The screened in porch was a great space to hang out, and there was plenty of room for our bikes. It was comfortable and very well laid out.
The breakfasts were delicous and filling, and the wine happy hour was unlimited.....my husband especially enjoyed the fresh baked cookies that were always available.
I would highly recommend the Iris Inn, everyone was friendly, and the location was great for all of the local attractions!

We very much enjoyed our stay. The hosts are very warm and attentive to the guests' needs. Wine tasting each afternoon ads a nice touch to their hospitality. The views from the property are gorgeous. The only drawback is that it's rather noisy there from the proximity to a highway.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deep Woods Cottage, and enjoyed it very much. It's very large and beautifully sit...
