“Can't wait to return!”
Reviewed 5 July 2009

A short 1/4 mile drive from the highway and you are in a different era. A beautifully restored home for a vacation retreat. Several tempting packages are offered to tour the era but Mayhurst could easily be the destination itself. We choose the Presidential tour and Jack's knowledge of history really helped make our visit special. We especially enjoyed the wine selections and the chance to sample local wines. We toured two of the wineries to purchase wines we were introduced to. Menus of local restaurants are available with Jack and Pat's personal recommendations. Pomme was our choice and it was a wonderful intimate dinner. A stay at Mayhurst is personal and gracious . Jack and Pat make you feel like you are visiting good friends. We plan on returning in the spring. Thanks, Rhea and Kay

My husband and I stayed three nights at Mayhurst. It was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts, daily wine and cheese served to us on the outside porch or library and many extras. We were in the area for Bike Virginia. We were given a ride when it was needed, ice to fill our camelback and water bottles and reservations were made to local restaurants. The Inn has copies of local restaurants to choose from for delicious dinners out in the area. Service was beyond the call of duty. One night my husband left his credit card at a restaurant and the owner picked it up the next day while we were out bicycling. You will not be disappointed staying at Mayhurst Inn.

We spent two nights in the "Southern Charm" room at The Mayhurst while attending a family reunion. Our room was a true step back in time while enjoying all the modern conveniences of a first class hotel! More importantly, however, was the wonderful treatment we received from Jack and Pat, the proprietors of The Mayhurst. They could not have been more friendly, helpful or made us feel more special! The breakfasts prepared by Pat were absolutely incredible and the presentation was first class!

We are already looking forward to our next reunion to return to The Mayhurst.

Two sisters and two brother in-laws enjoyed our stay at the Mayhurst to the upmost. Jack and Pat stayed up and greeted us after we arrived late. There was wine and cheese waiting for us in the parlor. The library is great for history buffs and the breakfasts were fantastic. Pat made us some special breakfasts and the tea and coffee were great. Jack is great with advising where to visit, where to eat. He always has his map and yellow hi-liter ready to give directions. The prices also were very reasonable. Just a wonderful, relaxing time.

My husband and I took a weekend to celebrate our 20th Anniversary in this charming B &
B. Arriving after a grueling drive to get out of the DC traffic, we were met with smiles, wine glasses, and scrumptious cheese. After visiting with the owners, we tried their suggestion for a local pizza place that hit the spot. Our hosts knew that we hoped to cycle that next day and had a wonderful album of possible bike routes for our pleasure. When we realized that our water bottles were moldy, not only were they replaced with cold water bottles from the host's fridge, but our own soiled bottles were thoroughly washed for our use upon our return. The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful; the Inn utterly "homey" and elegant; and the owners warm and friendly. This place is a gem in a bucolic setting. We went there to celebrate (and, that we did) but also found the afternoons spent reading on the back porch and naps in the hammock helped restore our spirits.

The Mayhurst Inn showered our extended family, ages ranging from 16 months to 94 years old, with the utmost care from the beginning of graduation weekend on Thursday until we departed on Sunday afternoon. Not only was the Mayhurst Inn able to provide excellent customer service, they were well set-up to handle handicapped-accessible accommodations for our 94 year old great grandmother in the Garden Room, and provide a quiet haven in the Schoolhouse for my brother-in-law's small family that included a 16 month old daughter. If that was not enough, we also hosted a cocktail party at the Mayhurst Inn on Thursday night for the parents of our son's graduating class. The Mayhurst Inn made a beautiful backdrop for such a lovely nighttime event. The Innkeepers, Pat & Jack North, could not have been more gracious. All in all, the Mayhurst Inn is what every B & B should be - well done in every way!

Spent 3 nights at the Mayhurst with family and friends and could not have asked for a better respite from the busy times associated with a wedding which was also held on the propery.. The food was excellent , the property was gorgeous and the owners of the Inn could not have been more accomodating. We will definietly rerurn again when we have a chance to relax and enoy the beautiful setting. The town of Orange is quaint.
I highly recomend this Inn as a must , if you are looking for a great and peaceful getaway. in Virginia.
