“Such a unique and beautiful place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend in August. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Caledonia Farm and with the host, Phil. We were in town for an event, so we didn't get to spend as much time at the Farm as we would have liked. We were disappointed that we didn't have a chance to tour the whole house or even see the infamous trains.

We arrived VERY late on Friday night and Phil was very gracious to greet us that late. The house is fascinating, with so much history. It felt like taking a step back in time. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and Phil paid attention to the details in serving us. Eating breakfast in the sunroom with a grand view of the mountains, apple trees, and hummingbirds was a great start to our days, for sure. Phil is incredibly knowledgeable about the area of VA and is very active in preserving the county as a piece of history with as little change as possible. As someone who grew up in a small town, it is always very refreshing to spend time in places where life is much simpler and not affected by the pace of today's crazy world.

If you like to experience history while you're traveling, then Caledonia Farm is a must! If you like to truly "get away" and be refreshed/renewed/relaxed, come to this part of VA!

Caledonia Farm was a true delight.My gentleman friend, Wim, and I spent this past weekend at the farm along with Wim's brother and sister-in-law. We spent two nights in the two bedrooms located on the second floor of the original building with a shared bathroom.
Both rooms were spacious, clean, and well appointed. Sharing the bathroom was not an issue for us. Phil was a charming, pleasant host, who provided us with a wonderful tour of the grounds, and offered much information about the area and activities available to us. We were visiting for a family reunion and therefore did not have much time to spend exploring the area and enjoying the farm house. We would gladly go back again and make time just to rest and relax on the grounds. Breakfast was included in the price both days of our stay. Phil personally cooked and served us, and the meal of a ham and cheese omelet, fruit and breakfast cake, was filling and delicious. We opted not to have breakfast the second day as we were attending a family breakfast for the reunion.
All in all, you will not be disappointed in staying at Caledonia farm. it is a lovingly cared for property rich in history, gorgeous views and a relaxing atmosphere.

What a beautiful and genuine country B&B! My fiance and I stayed at Caledonia Farm this past January upon celebration of our engagement.
Though the weather was cold, the atmosphere in the house was warm, and the surroundings breathtaking. The house itself has a cozy kitchen, with letter magnets on the fridge, and the odd newspaper clipping here and there. Phil, the host, is a nice and very interesting man: very hospitable, and quirky: truly a character, as others have noted. His demeanor brought a smile to my face that would not leave.
We stayed in the honeymoon suite, a two-story structure attached to the house that was once the servants' quarters. It was extremely romantic, private, and comfortable. There were glasses and plates available to us, as well as a wine key! In the morning we enjoyed delicious (award-winning!) Eggs Benedict, with great coffee and a gorgeous view from the breakfast nook.
The house, and its surroundings are steeped in Blue Hills farm land, and the view from the rocking chairs on the breezeway by our suite, was peaceful and calming, and the same as it was 200 years ago.

...Oh yeah, the rates for the service and surroundings are the absolute best you'll get in that neck of the woods!

We had a wonderful, unforgettable stay there, and we hope to return again, very soon!

Absolutely authentic experience of a 19th century living. Almost like living in a museum. The house which is 200 years old is very well maintained and beautifully decorated. A great weekend destination or a place to bring friends (especially visiting from the overseas as it is makes it a great and very unique cultural experience). We stayed there 3 or 4 times over the period of 2009-2010. In fact it is perfectly suited for two families who don't mind sharing bathroom as it makes it very very affordable then. Alternatively, there is a separate suite in a historic separate part of the building, which is a more expensive option for a romantic weekend.

The beds are less comfortable than usual as they are relatively small (I believe full size) but again it is compensated by a historic feel and touch on every piece of the furniture.

The owner is a very interesting individual with a rich past and cool hobbies. You will definitely feel as his personal guest (especially as he serves you breakfast -- and it is a CEREMONY that you should not disturb))). You should ask him for a tour of the property and to show you a passion of his life: a model railroad running through a 3' think wall in the basement of the building. If you have kids, they wont want to leave! Check youtube presentation on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EiIXUGTsF0

The inn is 5 min drive away from the historic town of Washington VA and its Inn in Little Washington (http://www.theinnatlittlewashington.com/), which is a high-end gastronomic restaurant, and if you cant book a dinner there, it is worth visiting just on an improvised walking tour (including various properties around it). It is also 15 min away from Skyline Drive, which makes it a perfect base for exploring Shenandoah.

I give it overall 4 stars just to set your expectations low so you can be impressed in your own way. And of course it is not a conventional 5 star place. But for what it is (its authenticity, uniqueness, tranquility, value for money, location, etc), it could well qualify for a 5 star experience!

A charming host, Phil, at a very historic 1812 farm. More than 2 miles of stone fence surround a beautiful setting.
I recommend this B&B because Phil goes out above the call of duty to make your stay a great one.

Caledonia Farms in Flint Hill, Virginia was absolutely gorgeous! We loved our stay. Phil Irwin was a wonderful host, and directed us to many memorable events. He also pointed to some wonderful restaurants, and provided us with a personal breakfast each morning. The breakfast was provided in a cozy nook overlooking the farm and its breath taking mountains. We traveled to Flint Hill in the Fall of 2010 and had a wonderful time. If you are looking for a quiet and romantic get away, this is the place. The Inn is absolutely gorgeous and filled with history. Phil can tell you everything you would like to know about the area. Will go back again.

During the month of December 2010 we drove from New Jersey to Louisiana and on to Arizona to visit friends and family. We decided to stay for a couple of nights at the Caledonia Farm 1812 Bed and Breakfast Inn. This would provide us with an opportunity to see and experience the local area, including the various caverns. We did not regret our decision thanks to Phil Irwin, the Inn’s proprietor who made our stay a true experience. The BB was well kept and provided a 1800’s ambiance. The breakfast had a special touch with a rustic setting, providing a beautiful view of Virginias pastures and rolling hills. Phil has a wealth of knowledge and cheerfully shared this with us while providing some unexpected but pleasant surprises. We were reluctantly to leave early and continue our trip using country roads. With the moon still shining on the snow covered fields we looked back on a highly recommended Caledonia Farm 1812.
