“The Retreat was fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

I recently had the privilege of staying at The Farmhouse for the retreat. What a great experience. The accommodations, the staff, the food, etc, etc was all top notch. They did an excellent job of planning a week full of fitness, relaxation, and fun! I would recommend anyone looking for a way to jump start their health/fitness to attend a week here. But, if you are just looking for a getaway this is also a place you don't want to miss!

I stayed at The Farmhouse at Veritas for its Retreat, a 6-night program devoted to hiking, yoga, healthful--yet still delicious--dining and of course, wine! Professional guides led the hikes, tailored to the group's abilities, on the area's beautiful trails. Two yoga classes a day worked out any kinks of either mind or body. Plus, there were cooking and wine tasting classes, horeseback riding, and best of all, massage! It was very low key and designed for people of all ages and fitness levels. I left relaxed and 5 pounds lighter. It was a welcome retreat for both body and spirit!

Room Tip: I stayed in Nottingham, a large room with sitting area and dressing room. I felt like a queen!

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at Veritas just after Independence Day, 2013. We arrived in time to enjoy tasting some fine wines at the family-owned winery which is on the property (complementary to guests at the farmhouse). There is an informal gathering in the afternoon with hors d'oeurves and more wines, served generously by a family member. Breakfast was prepared by a gourmet chef and served (with champagne) on a verandah overlooking the working vineyard. Excellent..

We chose The Farmhouse at Veritas because we liked the reviews but especially because of the location: just below the Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah N.P.) and close to Charlottesville, Montecello and many nearby wineries. We were not disappointed in the Inn or the attractions. Having stayed in B and B's, home stays and Boutique Hotels all over North America, several in South America and many in Australia and New Zealand we count Veritas among the very best!

In short: friendly, helpful staff, great food, fine accommodations and of course, location. Did I mention we liked it?

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room just off the library/common room. It was comfortable, convenient and we...

We visited in January to celebrate a birthday. The accommodations were wonderful-very pretty, and comfortable. We had dinner at the restaurant which was delicious. The innkeeper, Chloe, was especially accommodating and friendly. We would love to return in the spring or fall when the foliage is in color!

To use words to describe our stay would not do it justice. You must experience it for your self.
From the well built and decorated rooms to the location and the food, wine and the staff. We were met by the smiling face of Jose Hernandez Salazar and later Chloe the manager. They both provided to a wonderful stay. Of course there is the Chef, Andy Shipment who used his knowledge and creativity to prepare a sweet or savory breakfast menu that was excellent and well presented. The other people who were there also contributed to a very pleasent stay. I will not tell of the little surprises you get there so you can do your own "aah isn't that nice and aah look what they did".. So relax, smile , eat and sip the great wine!

Room Tip: We would stay in any of the four rooms on the second floor for they all provided space with great fu...

My wife and I had our wedding and reception at Veritas and loved going next door to stay at The Farmhouse. It had great service, nice rooms, and amazing food the next morning! The bacon jam omelette was phenomenal!

This is our second stay at the Farmhouse at Veritas and the fifth year of attending their NYE celebration at the Veritas Winery. The Farmhouse is wonderful. Breakfast is a four start event with sweet and savory options and the evening wine tasting is equally wonderful with Veritas award winning wines. We look forward to our next stay and partaking of the wine paired dinner. The most marvelous part of the Farmhouse is how involved the owners are in your visit. The setting is country elegant and the owners, Patricia and Andrew, are friendly, excellent hosts. They are ever present, turning up with the vineyard manager, to share the wine tasting, play a game of pool and visit with each quest. It is a spectacular place to visit with great food, wine and hospitality. We love attending the NYE and valentine events. They know how to throw a party!
