We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain Rose Inn Oct. 30-Nov. 2. Not only is the Inn beautiful, but the location is breathtaking! The the large stream in front of the Inn is a great place to relax and unwind while watching Maggie (the Inn's golden retreiver) and Cat play. Dora and Mike are fantastic and see that you have everything you need and more. The breakfast is amazing - you find you don't even need lunch. Our room "Pride of Virginia" was cozy and spacious with 2 private balconies. Several of the couples we met were on return visits to the Inn, and we plan to do the same. Enjoy!

We spent a night at the Mountain Rose Inn passing through from the Greak Smokies to Washington.

It's a beautiful, tranquil place. The room we had was fantastic, decorated to the highest order and with a gas fire to take the early autumn chill off. The innkeepers were first class in their service and the breakfast was brilliant.

It's only minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so a perfect stop off spot. We got some cheese and wine from Chateau Morrisette for supper and ate it in the cosy front room.

Make sure you take a walk in the extensive grounds.

This was our second stay to Mountain Rose Inn. We stayed earlier in the year (Easter Weekend) before the trees had opened. The setting was beautiful both seasons. With warmer weather this trip we were able to enjoy sitting by the river at the end of the day reading a good book. The B & B has several porches where you can enjoy star gazing in the evening, find a quiet spot to read or spend quiet moments, visit with loved ones or new friends, or just enjoy the frolic of hummingbirds. Dora and Mike are the perfect hostess/host and have taken much TLC towards caring for this beautiful historic home and those who stay with them. We look forward to our next trip to Mountain Rose and would definately reccomend it to our friends and family.

Dear travelers:

We greatly appreciate the kind comments that our guests post after staying at the Mountain Rose Inn. It is aways a pleasure for us to have guests that visit us more than once. Many of them become a part of our extended family.

As mentioned by this guest, all seasons here at the Inn are quite beautiful. It's one of the many reasons that we too love this area. It is a delight to hear that the Inn and surrounding beauty has worked its charm on yet another visitor to these parts.

Happy travels to all of you,
Mike & Dora Jane Barwick

My husband and I needed a short vacation and I wanted a B & B with a pool that was also in the mountains. We love staying at B & B's - but I had never had a 4 course breakfast before. It was fantastic! Dora Jane and Mike are wonderful hosts. The house is right on a creek and the humming birds will entertain you! It is located where you can visit some local wineries. We felt refreshed and relaxed.

The first rule in being a gracious host is to overcome personal angst and observe the situation. The innkeeper, Mike failed in greeting us after a long day and despite my restraints went on and on with his smart-mouth remarks towards me and my wife which were totally unnecessary. We decided not stay as I value my money and if the we were to be greeted in such fashion who knows about the rest of the stay. The inn itself is average with small, cramped rooms. It would be okay for short stay, but the website is prettier than the real thing.
Anyhow, my advice is to keep Mike in the background and let the Mrs innkeepr take care of the guests.
Overall, there are better lodgings close by for the money with much better service.

Dear travelers:

We read this review with much dismay as we were unaware of any guest who had visited the Inn and left displeased with us or with the accommodations provided. When concerns are expressed, we always do everything that we can to meet guests’ needs and rectify any potential problems. We certainly regret that we were unable to meet this traveler’s needs, however it is somewhat difficult to correct problems that we do not know exist.

The writer mentioned that he thought the rooms were cramped. The Inn is a 100+ year old home. The average size of our guests rooms is 250sq.ft. Many of our previous guests have commented to us on how spacious, relaxing and detailed they find the guest rooms to be. The rooms are furnished with the comfort of our guests in mind.

We have in the past month had a couple who made a reservation, stopped by for a visit with large dogs in tow in spite of being informed of our no-pet policy, left for the kennel that we located for them and for dinner and did not return. We assumed that they reneged on their reservation without so much as a considerate cancellation call because their reservation was held with a stolen credit card. It is doubtful that they would have posted this review but we wanted to mention the one and only possible problem that we have known about in the time frame that this review was posted.

The old adage holds true – you can’t please all the people, all of the time. However, as shown by our many other reviews, we do please the majority of our guests who come to experience this wonderful Inn and our Southern hospitality. We are committed to caring for our guests and ensuring that their getaway is wonderful in every way.

Happy travels to all of you!
Mike & Dora Jane Barwick
