My wife and I decided to elope. While we were not having a crowd (or any guests) for our wedding, we still wanted a wedding experience. After some searching, we decided to book the elopement package at the Mountain Rose Inn.

We booked online shortly after the Innkeepers switched, and were concerned because our booking had been based on reviews from the previous Innkeepers; however, Christie, the current Innkeeper, handled everything beautifully. We had several special requests, and she was able to accommodate everything we asked for. We were able to specify the type of ceremony, select our flowers, select a photographer, give preference of wine, schedule massages, schedule a dinner at the Inn, and pick the flavor of wedding cake baked for us.

The ceremony on the grounds was wonderful. The officiant selected did an excellent job, and the photographer, Robert Lipscomb, provided us with top-notch photos. Christie provided us with sparkling wine, and the assistant Innkeeper Dawn baked us a delicious red velvet cake. We definitely received the wedding experience we were looking for.

As for the Inn itself, it is a charming old house. The creek running across the front is peaceful and pretty. There were various trails through the woods around the Inn, and walking these was a source of enjoyment for us. The room we stayed in, The Pride of Virginia, was more spacious than I’d expect for a bed and breakfast. The Mountain Rose Inn makes a big deal about their sheets, and for good reason- these were some of the most comfortable sheets we have ever slept on. The room was surprisingly warm; we never had to use our in-room fireplace. The shower is spacious, with great water pressure and heat. We missed having a bathtub, but the quality of the shower almost made up for it. Having an HDTV with DirecTV was nice; however, the built-in DVD player seemed to have some problems. We were able to get movies to play, but were not able to skip scenes, pause the movie, etc. Also, if I were to have one complaint, the bathroom is stocked with one-ply toilet tissue. One-ply! Bring your soft tissue from home.

The food was great. I am a meat eater and my wife is a vegetarian; Christie and her staff were able to provide and cook a menu that accommodated us both. The dinner was excellent, as were each of the breakfasts. The breakfast buffet on Sunday had a bowl of bacon; really, what more could you ask for? We selected a breakfast in bed for one morning, which was nice, and served to us well. We also did a wine and cheese basket. This was just superb, one of the best things we experienced while at the Mountain Rose Inn. There were a variety of sliced cheeses and crackers, several types of chocolate, fresh fruit, utensils, and the wine itself. Each of the wines selected for us was good, and most of them were local Virginia wines. We were surrounded by chocolate: chocolate on our pillows, on our cups, in a bowl in our room, in a bowl by the guest book, in our gift basket, in our wine and cheese basket, and laid out for us when we arrived. Some of these were from the elopement package, but there was an overall abundance of chocolate at the Inn.

The coffee was some type of flavored coffee. Not our preference, but perhaps it is overall a crowd pleaser. Having sherry laid out in the afternoon was a good touch, and I strongly recommend sitting in the study while sipping on a glass.

I am not a fan of massages, but my wife assures me the masseuse did an excellent job.

To say we were pleased was an understatement. Christie and her staff went well out of their way to make us feel special not just on our wedding day but for our entire stay. We most highly recommend the Mountain Rose Inn, whether for a special occasion or a simple weekend getaway.

Room Tip: The Pride of Virginia is the only room with private porches. Great for a romantic getaway!

My husband and I had the wonderful good fortune to stay at the Mountain Rose Inn on a recent vacation. The Inn is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and the rooms are very spacious. Our hosts were very friendly and generous with information about the Inn and the surrounding gorgeous property. We enjoyed a peaceful walk along the river, and a late night glass of wine on the upstairs veranda, while we watched the distant cars navigate the winding mountain roads. Breakfast was a gourmet treat including baked apples, southwest egg bake with roasted corn and tomatoes, and blackberry confit. It was elegantly served by one of the hosts, who went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and satisfying.

My husband and I stayed overnight at this bed and breakfast on a fall vacation. Everything was as described on the website. The room we stayed in "The pride of Virginia" was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable, the room nicely decorated, and the wifi worked well. When we arrived a snack of a bread bowl with dip and vegetables was set out for the guests but we were going out to dinner and didn't have any of it. Drinks and other snacks were also available. There are many places to sit and relax inside and outside. The quiet location ensures a great night's sleep. Coffee was set out before breakfast in the morning. Breakfast was served at individual tables and was a three course gourmet treat. I highly recommend this inn if you are traveling through southwestern Virginia. If we travel to this area again I would love to stay again!

Mike and Dora Jane were great and very helpful for all our needs. It is a very peaceful place and very well run and maintained. Would go back again! Again we "Loved" it !!!! It is a little out of the way but that's what we were looking for. We didn't mind driving the mountain roads to reach such a beautitul place. It is a very old house but restored to the utmost.

The Mountain Rose Inn is just outside of Woolwine, and it is a few miles up and over the Blue Ridge to Clyde, Va. The Blue Ridge parkway is nearby. We arrived by driving North on the Parkway and the directions supplied were good and helpful.

The Inn is in a quiet, almost secluded location along a lovely creek. The environment is very fine, and a bright Spring or Fall day would invite lounging on the veranda or the outside decks. A BBQ might even be a good idea.

The B&B is excellent, the room we had was very comfortable. Mike and Dora may now be on their way back to South Carolina from whence they came so we don't know who may be the hosts if you go; Mike and Dora were gracious and helpful hosts. Breakfasts were fine and they gave us good tips for dining out and for hiking.

The only drawback to the location is that Dinner venues are a bit of a drive away, and the road up to Clyde is a very winding road. We had no real trouble with it but we might have preferred to be closer to a nice dinner spot.

It was snowing in late March on the Sunday we left, and we took it slow and easy down the mountain to the East. A drive to dinner in the snow on a dark night might have been troublesome, but fortunately did not have that problem.

We did encounter a block on the Blue Ridge parkway returning from dinner and the detour directions Mike and Dora supplied worked fine.

Room Tip: Ask good questions of the Innkeepers to assure you get what you want.
