We just got back from our 12 year anniversary getaway stay at the Orchard House, and boy were we sad to leave. If I could give it 6 stars I would. We only had a short stay, and Deb and Mike helped make it memorable. The room was immaculate, we stayed in the "Winesap" room and it was very comfortable....

First, the disclosure: the Orchard House is owned by a former colleague and his wife. Part of my visit was a social catch-up and part was simply to patronize their new enterprise on my way to the shore. And I'm glad that I did! The Orchard House has all the lovely amenities that you expect to find at a quality...

Thanks, Janice, for the wonderful words! I am so sorry that I missed meeting you in person, but Mike said it was a great visit. We would love to have you come through and stay longer again soon, we need to explore a couple of the wineries with you! Thanks again for making the effort to stop through our area.

What a wonderful place. My husband and I went for a weekend getaway for our first anniversary. We stayed in the Northern Spy room, which was lovely, but we checked out all the other rooms- equally impressive. The bed was fantastic and the breakfasts were amazing! Each night the hosts left us a sweet treat to welcome us home. They...

The Orchard House is the perfect place for a weekend getaway! Tucked away in the Virginia mountains, it is within 20-30 minutes of tons of wineries, breweries, distilleries, outdoor activities, and more. We were catching up with some college friends at some of the local wineries and breweries and decided to stay at the Orchard House instead of driving several...

My fiance and I had been searching for a few months for a nice "elopement" location for just the two of us to exchange our vows. We looked at beach packages, but ultimately didn't like the thought of strangers wandering by during the ceremony. We also searched out garden or specialty locations, but quickly discovered they were not interested in...

With it's beautifully maintained grounds, the country-elegant decor theme, and incredibly welcoming innkeepers, Deb and Mike, we felt both special, pampered AND at the same time, relaxed and at home. The entire house is carefully and well-appointed; you can see the level of consideration put into each piece of art and every furniture placement. It's well thought out and lovely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Orchard House B&B! An historic farmhouse built in 1874, it was once the location of a thriving apple orchard for many years. Start your visit with a glass of wine and homemade cookies on our front porch. Stroll around our picturesque 14 acres and watch for the resident bunnies scampering across the lawn. While at the Orchard House, you can choose to be as busy or as relaxed as your mood decides. Enjoy our chauffeured wine tours, hike the famous Crabtree Falls, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, tour Monticello, explore the various antique shops nearby, visit the local orchards or swimming quarries, check out the multitude of wineries, breweries, and distilleries. Or choose to lay in the comfy hammocks gazing up at the endless skies, take a dip in the pool, stroll through our one-acre vineyard, relax in the new gazebo, listen to the frogs chirping from the pond, identify the beautiful birds that flit from one birdfeeder to the next, read a book in one of the many Adirondack chairs that grace the front lawn, rock on the sprawling front porch while soaking up our amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. No matter what you choose to do while visiting us at the Orchard House, we guarantee your time will be rejuvenating, memorable, and filled with good food, good memories, and new friends. Relax and rejuvenate in an elegant country atmosphere. Leave feeling better than when you arrived! ... more   less
