The Farmhouse at Veritas

Reviewed 9 August 2014

Just completed our third stay at "The Farmhouse" and I can only say it continues to be a better experience than the last stay.... which was very good. The Hodson family, who own and developed the vineyard and their former homestead, show a refined taste of rural living with linen service and good organization. We had two chefs plying their art for us, one of which just returned from a years study of the culinary art in Italy, and they both provided a wonderful touch of class. The difference, to me, between refined and simply very good, is the attention to the "small things". The Farmhouse achieved refined during our last stay and thusly earned an excellent rating from us. If one would appreciate casual refinement, book a room and enjoy!

Room Tip: The Derby room is a great room, but only if there is not an issue about climbing circular stairs to...

My fiance and I spent the weekend at the Farmhouse and we couldn't be happier with our selection. The farmhouse is perfectly located in the heart of VA, surrounded by mountains, wineries, and brew houses. We spent the weekend hiking, going from brewery to winery, and stuffing ourselves at the farmhouse. Each mean comes paired with wines from Veritas vineyard, and tastings at the winery (~10 min walk) are free. The staff were warm and accommodating and the food was incredible! We are already recommending this to our family and friends as a must visit!

Room Tip: All the rooms were large and offered great views of the surrounding countryside. We stayed in one o...

If you're looking for a restful stay in a bucolic and verdant setting nestled among rolling hills with views of the vineyard from almost every window, you've found the place! My wife and I stayed in the Devon room for a couple nights and knew we were going to come back even before we unpacked our bags. From the updated farmhouse, to the views, to the excellent breakfast prepared by one of the Veritas' chefs (we had the executive!), to the wine hour, to fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, to romantic walks in the vineyard, to wine tasting, to sitting out on the porch, to the sheep grazing in the pasture, to having breakfast outdoors under their covered patio with sparking white wine... I could go on! The only unfortunate thing for us was that our stay didn't coincide with their dinner service at the end of the week and during the weekend. The staff were extremely friendly and we were fortunate to enjoy wine hour with Patricia, one of the owners. Overall, a very well done inn - we'll be back!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of the rooms, as they all seemed nice. We stayed in the Devon upstai...

This was our first stay at The Farmhouse at Veritas, and we were completely satisfied with everything. The property is beautiful and well-maintained. The staff was attentive and gracious, and we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food. We would love to return for another visit!

Fabulous accommodations. The farmhouse is updated without losing its charm. We stayed in Devon which was very spacious - watch your step down to the bathroom :) The entire house is well laid out so noise from other guests is minimized. I love to eat outside, so definitely loved breakfast every morning in the veranda. The 9-11am breakfast hours were great as we enjoyed the extra zzzs. I highly recommend the Farmhouse dinner which we did upon arrival on Friday and once again ate outside, on the back porch. It’s convenient and better than other restaurant choices nearby, so worth the splurge. The wine hour is just beforehand and you can’t beat the complimentary glasses of Veritas wine. The chef/food was fantastic and kudos to the service staff!
One more outdoor lover tip: Have your morning coffee outside on the screened-in balcony on the 2nd floor, overlooking the vines.

This was my second stay at The Farmhouse at Veritas and everything was perfect. From breakfast, to the room, to the daily wine hour, I have absolutely no complaints. Chloe at Veritas is not only an incredible manager, but is a truly consummate and attentive host. The entire staff is friendly and the food... Simply incredible. I will definitely be going back soon!

First, it is on the BEST winery in VA, which is not an easy accomplishment. Second, the staff (from Chloe to Leticia) are gifted and focused on making your personal experience the best it can be. Third, the FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. Period. Breakfast and Dinner are always a pleasant adventure. Fourth, each room is unique and elegant while making you feel like you are the only guest at the Farmhouse. The overall experience is classic, understated, rich and very, very personal. We have stayed three times and each time the Farmhouse has deepened the offerings while maintaining the "British Family" atmosphere that makes it our very favorite home away from home. We'll be back every year, FOREVER!

Room Tip: Look at the floorplan, if you want a bigger bathroom or a better view of the Chardonnay vines, you w...
