We went to the Inn last weekend. Stayed in the Butler's Cottage, which was beautiful and charming. Walked around the grounds, which were just lovely, set on rolling hills. We've stayed in some very nice places and this ranks among the top. The cottage was 3 rooms and had 2 porches (one covered), amazing desserts appeared each night in our cottage and each morning delicious, warm beignets appeared. Everything was so tasteful -- large bathroom with heated floors, towel rack, wonderful linens, etc.

When we wanted to venture out for a hike, the staff couldn't have been more helpful in pointing us in the right direction, looking up maps & trails in Shenandoah National Park for us, providing water, etc. And then they even remembered to ask how our day was later.

We had dinner in the restaurant one night and the food was delicious. The staff could not have been more accommodating -- bringing an alternative amuse bouche when I said I didn't eat meat. I overheard them make other, more complicated dietary accommodations for another guest. The waitstaff was warm and friendly without being overbearing. The restaurant is very cozy. We ended up getting dessert later in the evening in the bar area which is also charming.

Would love better outside seating near the firepits -- there was no seating for two. And would have loved a real, wood fire rather than the electric fires, but if that's my biggest criticism, I'd say they're doing pretty darn well!

I'd definitely go back. Also, can totally imagine the place as a setting for a destination wedding or other type of celebration. The school house is beautiful and we saw them taking down a tent where they'd had something shortly before we arrived.

Room Tip: Didn't see the rooms in the main inn, but Butler's Cottage was amazing!

We’re so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The Butler’s Cottage is a special spot for a quiet, romantic getaway a deux, but you really can’t go wrong in any of our luxurious accommodations. Whether in the Manor House or in any of the surrounding cottages, you will be sure to find elegant, comfortable, sumptuous furnishings with whimsical touches and breathtaking scenery! Our three gas fire pits are surrounded by comfortable outdoor “arm chairs”, which couples are welcome to pull together for a romantic snuggle by the fire. While we agree that the snap and crackle of an outdoor wood fire has a special charm, for reasons of fire safety the gas fire pits will have to do for now. Thank you so much for taking the time to post. We hope to have you back again soon!

Everything is top drawer: room, butler service, restaurant, pub, breakfast service, and views. We have stayed in many B&Bs and inns throughout Virginia, and there are several excellent places; the Inn at Willow Grove was a wonderful surprise and a top contender. We will definitely go again.

Absolutely exceeded our expectations. Very welcoming. Staff was knowledgable, helpful and put the customer first. We enjoyed delicious room service upon arrival, pub far and dinner at Vintage. Room was immaculate and comfortable. Diana, our bartender, and servers Amy and Brianna were great! Our butler, Stephen, offered activity suggestions and took care of any request we had. Nice to try a new place, especially with their weeknight specials. Definitely going back!!

This review is about the Willow Grove restaurant - Vintage. My review of the Inn was misfiled under the restaurant. Too much trouble to get it straight. We had the fortunate opportunity to enjoy the Wednesday tapas that allowed us to sample the chef's various full course selections. Two couples enjoyed a variety of tastings. Our favorites were the baby spinach- orzo salad, strip steak, crab cake, halibut taco and mac & cheese accompanied by a great bottle of Pinot Noir. The second night we all had the pan seated chicken with an unbelievable cauliflower casserole that could have been a meal by itself. A friendly and accommodating staff made it that much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Cottage versus an inn room.

Your review may have been misfiled, but it is deeply appreciated! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Tapas Wednesday is such an incredible opportunity to sample the wide range of Chef Daniels’ mouth-watering cuisine, and at $5 a plate it is such an amazing value. Come back and see us again soon!
