“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

My wife and I highly recommend the Mayhurst Inn. Jack and Pat North offer a warmth of welcome and a great deal of helpful information about the fascinating vicinity surrounding the Inn. Exploring local historic sites and terrific scenic drives gets off to a great start each day with a delicious and hearty Mayhurst breakfast!

We stayed for two nights and wished we had booked for longer. Next time we will for sure.

Wonderfully historic accomodations! Perfect host and hostess full of history and local information. Beautiful landscape and superb layout. Stayed in the old schoolhouse with my wife for the weekend and they gave us one night free for being U.S. Army veterans. Unbelievable wine and cheese every night and breakfasts were awesome. Listen to their recommendations for eating, sightseeing and shopping. Or just hike and enjoy the grounds of Mayhurst. Will definitely go back. And climb all 65 stairs to the top of the cupola! Thanks!

Jack and Pat are the owners and simply a great spot. If you are a history buff this is a must. An authentic 1860 built house that hosted civil war generals. Awesome stay. This is a great spot for a getaway or visiting Woodberry Forest and the price was reasonable. Very welcoming.

We stayed at the Mayhurst Inn for two nights in late September, as part of a touring holiday of Virginia. The beautiful house has an interesting history and is set in extensive grounds, complete with a multitude of birds. A lot of thought has gone into making the rooms very comfortable and welcoming, and Jack's wine and cheese tastings are not to be missed - he is an extremely generous and knowledgeable host. Last, but certainly not least, Pat's delicious home-cooked breakfasts are guaranteed to get the day off to a superb start. Many thanks from two very satisfied guests.

Get away for the weekend and visit the Mayhurst Inn! My husband and I got married at Mayhurst and try to go back down every year on our anniversary. It’s a beautiful area and the Innkeepers, Jack and Pat are wonderful hosts and always have wonderful stories to share. All of the rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is always delicious. We’re already looking forward to our next visit.

I believe that the Mayhurst experience has ruined us for all other B&Bs. The accommodations are luxurious and imbued with a rich history. The innkeepers not only pamper us with their hospitality, but take the time to visit with us and other guests in their elegant library each evening, while together we sip wine and snacks and share interesting stories.

A totally lovely experience! We love to stroll the grounds of this former plantation, gazing past the woods and out over the lake, enjoying the subtle music of leaves wafting to the ground in the autumn breeze.

And oh, the breakfasts!

This is a gorgeous Italianate designed plantation home that has been lovingly restored to provide travellers with every comfort. Big clean rooms decorated in antique style with spotless functioning bathrooms, plentiful clean and fluffy towels, air-conditioning, and comfortable beds. The grounds are large and sprawling with path ways and walks abounding. Jack and Pat are wonderful hosts ready to cater to your every need. Wine and cheese is served in the evenings and it is a lovely way to share travel stories with other guests. Jack serves only the best local wines and Pat prepares different cheese platters each night to delight the palate. Pat's breakfasts are amazing with a different treat each day. A wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room which suited us as we had a lot of luggage. Other rooms are up the ellipt...
