“Vaucluse - June, 2014”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The sound of the water cascading over the stone wall next the Mill House is just part of the pervasive peace and proximity to nature, that Vaucluse offers. When we drive through its gates, my husband always says, “We’re almost home honey, home to Brigadoon.”
We curl around the gravel path, past five homes, each with its own character, layout and approach to charm, something that imbues every aspect of Vaucluse. When you reach the graceful brick Manor House, you are welcomed by Barry or Neil, the inn’s owners, into a sanctum of warmth, golden light, floor to ceiling windows, and stately rooms that invite you to read, enjoy Neil’s homemade cookies, (served at “tea” from 3-5p.m.), enjoy the fires when it is crisp outside and to wonder at the richness of the colors that surround you.
When we return to the Millhouse, Bob naps and I walk the path parallel to the fence. The cows roam, looking for tall grass and then fall into painterly poses against the bounder strewn slopes. I startle a baby fox, crouched practicing its hunting manoeuvers, who races across the street.
My walk ends in circle eights around the pond and clearing, seeing the minnows leap skyward from the water’s edge and the hill bordering the pond, imbedded with trees and boulders, leading up to the Chumley house, typically filled with families, groups of friends or wedding parties seeking to share time and fun events together.
Dinner and breakfast at Vaucluse are wonderful experiences. Even without the pleasures of exploring the surrounding towns, (Winchester, Shepardstown, Middleburg and Sperryville), the immersion in nature and the delight of savoring exquisite food served in the subtle, calm, beauty of the Manor House, would be more than enough to warrant a stay.
Adam, the chef, brings excitement to carrot soup and makes a mushroom cannolini that almost brought me to public moaning. A pork medallion, suffused with oils, was the best I’d ever had. Every dish was a delectable gift. Neil is in charge of breakfasts, each one beginning with a delicious muffin, scone or cake, followed by a jewel of a fruit presentation, and closing with an egg offering which make me begin to think that a person could create a constantly changing, sumptuous diet based on eggs alone.
The last day always comes too soon. We pull out onto the super highways and gladiator driving, missing Vaucluse already, but knowing that during each visit we are enriched by its beauty, peace and delightful experiences for the senses and the soul.

The "Brigadoon of Virginia" -- we love it!! It's just how we feel about it, the many mornings of driving through the grounds shrouded in mists coming off the spring. It truly is magic and we love being able to share it with all our wonderful guests. Thank you so much for your thoughtful description of your stay!

Turning into the drive, we knew we had reached a unique destination to which no website could do justice. The impression of the Manor House was so warm and inviting that we changed our earlier booking to stay there and enjoyed thoroughly our accommodation in the Strother Room. Dinner that evening was more than memorable as Chef Adam and Corey prepared and served a five course tasting menu with paired wines that will not soon be forgotten. Breakfast was equally special, as was Neil's visit with each of her guests at table - she made all feel welcome and comfortable. While my wife and I were journeying from TX to NY and had only planned the one night at Vaucluse we were very tempted to alter the schedule and stay another day...we are already planning our next stay!.

Room Tip: Manor House second floor accommodations are highly recommended!

We enjoyed a one night stay in June, 2014. The innkeepers were warm, friendly and helpful. The location is just beautiful! I can't think of a better place to escape the city. The food was amazing!! We truly enjoyed the personalized service of "Dinner With The Chef" . The breakfast was equally delicious. Thank you, Barry and Neil, for you hospitality and support of the local community. As a local educator, I truly appreciate your generosity.

We are senior citizens (well over 70) and experienced travelers. We spent two nights here mid-June 2014 on our 50th Wedding Anniversary road trip in Northern Virginia. Our chosen room reportedly had AC problems, so we were bumped up to the cabin nearest the main house. It was cozy and totally quiet. We had a rich breakfast next morning, but it was in the evening (Thursday) that the five-star chef du cuisine put on a show: amazing cooking, four courses, all original, complex, and about as delicious as it gets. Perfect portions, nothing overdone, and nothing in the least ordinary. The following morning's breakfast was also completely satisfying. The premises are a kind of estate, and its buildings and landscaping are kept up to a fare-thee-well. Neil and Barry host and manage a great and beautiful place, and everything is done to be helpful and useful to the guest (such as, e.g., maps and area guides). We've come here before, and our impression of excellence remains happily unchanged.

Room Tip: I doubt there are any rooms that are not desirable, but we've have only stayed in the main house...

For us, this beautiful inn is more of a destination than a place to stay. With many places to sit and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery, my wife and I love to come here just to decompress. The breakfast is a gourmet delight always served with fresh local fruits and vegetables and fresh herbs picked from Neil's garden. Your hosts Neil and Barry Myers obviously work very hard to make your stay the highlight of any visit to Virginia. We highly recommend it and look forward to our next visit.

The Inn and Innkeepers are absolutely wonderful! We stayed only one night en route to a beach vacation and loved every minute of our stay. The owners have paid attention to every detail. A quiet and peaceful getaway at which we would have liked to stay another day or two. Book this place; you will not be disappointed!

After arriving there, the owner greeted us personally and gave us a small tour around the property. They had gluten-free cookies ready for my fiancée as I had previously mentioned that she had dietary restrictions. The chef is extremely talented and we experienced the best meal of our lives later that evening. The area is beautiful and the cabin itself was exceptional. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
