“Wonderful Friends Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

We just can't say enough about our stay at the Orchard House. The innkeepers are so warm and friendly - I know they would do anything for you. We went to many restaurants and wineries in the area and we were quite impressed with the high caliper of wine and food. The breakfasts were out of this world - especially the egg crepes with hollandaise sauce. We are already planning our return trip!

Room Tip: We loved the decor in the Black Twig Room; every room is named after a type of apple.

We were visiting our son for a week who goes to college in Lynchburg who wasn't coming home for the summer. We wanted to stay in a "house" like setting so we could cook our meals and be together. Even though it is a 45 min drive into Lynchburg it was the perfect place for our family to be together for a week. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need to cook with. The family room is large and has games and a TV. The bedrooms were beautiful with their own bathrooms. They brought a grill down for us to grill our dinners. We were there a week and they stocked it at the beginning of the week with cereal, english muffins, juice and milk. The grounds are beautiful as you sit outside and look at the mountains surrounding Lovingston. The small vineyard on the property is also very pretty. We thoroughly enjoyed being together and having this home for a week to reconnect as a family.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our first B&B experience at Orchard House and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. The service was amazing and the accommodations were perfect. We will definitely be coming back in the fall with more friends and would recommend Orchard House to anyone.

Also, we highly recommend Richard's wine tour!

Thanks for a great weekend and see you in a few months!

We stayed at the Orchard House to celebrate our anniversary. The property was amazing and offered a variety of places (hammocks, chairs, front porch, etc) to relax after a day of hiking and visiting breweries and wineries in the area. Richard and Deb did a fantastic job of making us aware of the activities in the area and how to get there. The room was incredibly clean and comfortable.

My partner and I planned a trip to attend the King Family Vineyards Pig Roast which happened to be the same weekend as the UVA Graduation. All of the hotels in and around Charlottesville were booked so I decided to try a Bed and Breakfast. It was our first time in a Bed and Breakfast and Deb and Richard the owners made it a memorable one. They were extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions on things to do during our trip. The room we were in was the Black Twig. It has a private bathroom which is rather large for hotel standards. The views from the window overlook the vineyard they have onsite. Breakfast was amazing both mornings and the portion sizes were more than generous.

I do not recall where I found the Orchard Inn, but thank God I did. We were seeking a place to stay for the weekend of our son's graduation from Univ of Virginia (UVa) as all the in-town and nearby hotels were either full, charging premium rates, or demanding 3 night stays. I was intrigued by the various rooms on their website,and the hardest decision was which one. We chose the Northern Spy,which I recommend most heartily - spacious, lots of windows so very bright, great bed, very comfortable, nothing to mar our enjoyment. The grounds too were terrific - altho there are no truly spectacular views, the gardens are just so welcoming that you are drawn to the front porch chairs, hammocks, etc, just to listen to the many birds singing their heads off. What bliss! So inviting! The decor in all the BRs as well as common rooms was excellent - very elegant without seeming pretentious, very comfortable and truly inviting. The hosts too were simply terrific. We have stayed at hundreds of B&Bs around the world, and very few have had as charming, friendly and helpful hosts as Deb and Richard. They really made you feel they valued your friendship, and wanted you to enjoy their home - not just their business. Never intrusive, but always there if needed, and ready to socialize if you so chose. We were especially impressed with their breakfast offerings. Not only extremely unique (and delicious), but served in a most convivial manner,with particular attention to individual needs. We for example cannot eat pork, so they very subtly substituted turkey sausage and turkey bacon for all guests at each weekend, making us feel even more welcome and valued. My only regret is we only discovered this superb venue on our likely last visit to Charlottesville. Although the Inn is nearly 30 miles from downtown Charlottesville, the drive is very easy, and it actually took us far less time (35 minutes) to get to UVa from that distance than it would have coming from any other direction (especially from the northern side of town). It truly is an ideal base for a weekend trip to the University,or to Monticello, local wineries, etc. Even the local restaurants had very good food,equal to Charlottesville restaurants, at prices substantially lower than the premiums charged in town. My only (constructive) criticism is that the hosts should warn guests of the potential speed traps on Rt 29 in the early morning. The road is full of hills, and therefore very easy to exceed the limit when coming down a very long and steep hill, but very hard to see the hidden police cars and their radar devices. I might have been more cautious had I been forewarned. But that was just a minor cloud on an otherwise perfect horizon.

Room Tip: Our Northern Spy room was great, though the York Imperial and the Gala looked equally attractive, an...

Our quilting group visits orchard house twice yearly and we're never disappointed. The innkeepers couldn't be more accommodating. The food is delicious,coffee and tea stations are provided,as well as soft drinks. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a private bath in each bedroom. Oh, and did I mention the scenery,you can't find any better.

Room Tip: The rooms are named for apples. I stayed in both the black twig and the gala. Both are good rooms.
