Over this past weekend of Columbus Day 2017, My wife and I and many of her family members all came to The Orchard House B&B in Lovingston, VA for a family wedding in the area. We could not have imagined such a wonderful stay at such a gorgeous place. The Orchard House stands head and shoulders above all the rest. Our hostess Deb has a very careful, quiet, gracious manner and expert taste in everything accommodating that shines through everywhere. It truly made the weekend an even more special memory Deb’s husband Mike's Breakfasts are so delicious and uniquely varied with fresh fruits, home made pastries, several delicious ways to prepare and serve eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, you name it and they'll have it. The surrounding property of the historic 19th Century main house is just amazing. If you’re interested in this period of architecture, this has all the hallmarks of a by-gone era with beautiful rooms, exquisite furnishings in comfortable rooms that make you want to linger just a little longer over one of the fresh brewed coffees. You can laze around sitting on the porch swing while gazing out on the beautiful Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. Mike is well versed in all the local sites to see from scotch whisky distillery museum to many wineries within a short drive. Needless to say we absolutely loved it there and will be surely coming back for more!!
We recently spent a weekend at the Orchard House with friends to visit the local wineries. The B&B was lovely and Deb and Mike were wonderful hosts! Each day started with a home cooked breakfast in the beautiful dining room. We followed breakfast on Saturday with a personalized wine/brewery tour with our chauffeur Mike. They really know the area....this is a must do on your trip! The first evening we went out for dinner at one of the local recommended restaurants nearby. The second evening we picked up food and enjoyed beverages around the cozy fire pit. A perfect ending to a perfect day. We really had an amazing experience at the Orchard House B&B. We're already planning another trip with more friends. Don't wait...book your room/trip now!
My husband Gregg and I had a fantastic long weekend away for his birthday/labor day. Wendie and Jay were great and always treated us like family. They even lit a fire for us one evening. Such a homey atmosphere and the breakfast was superb, especially the Mexican breakfast!! Thank you for everything :)
We were in Charlottesville on business and wanted to stay at a B&B to relax and enjoy the weekend. We found Orchard House on line and called and spoke to Deb. What a lucky call for us. Deb and Mike could not have been more accommodating. What a lovely place to relax and enjoy. The room was meticulously done and so comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. We will go back again and again. Great B&B and wonderful owners. Can't wait to see you both again. Will recommend Orchard House to everyone we know. Harry and Christine Chilcot.
What a wonderful experience! Home away from home! Its a friendly, comfortable, very clean environment to spend lots of quality time. The breakfast is amazing! They really spoil you! The care takers are awesome and we are very grateful to have meant them. Faythe and Francis
I thoroughly enjoyed my week in Virginia. From the wine tasting tour guided by Mike to dining and sightseeing in Charlottesville and cycling to the nearby music festival then cooling off in the pool at the Orchard House. Deb and Mike have made our two visits so far feel like a friends house with great breakfast. The only hard part is leaving at the end of our stay! Thanks again Dean
We recently spent a weekend at Orchard House, and it was wonderful. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the Inn is very comfortable and welcoming. They had wonderful amenities, Mike and Deb were amazing hosts. They've worked with local businesses to develop a "VIP" program for their guests, and they went out of their way to be helpful and assist us in having a great weekend! The breakfasts and afternoon goodies were good, and the atmosphere was really lovely. Would definitely stay again.
A nice relaxing and beautiful site. Good location for visits to wineries and breweries in the area. Good local hiking and within a day trip distance to Montecello and Charlottesville.
My wife and I recently spent two nights at Orchard House while passing through Virginia. Orchard House is located between Lynchburg and Charlottesville in beautiful Lovington, VA. This B&B came highly recommended by several people we know, so we felt fortunate to be able to get a very nice room on short notice. To do justice to describing this property would require far too many paragraphs. I will simply say, my wife and I were so impressed by this home, it's decore and the entire property. The owners of Orchard House have done such a nice job of making their guests feel at home. From the warm welcome you receive upon arrival, to the over-the-top breakfast each morning. I would be remiss if I didn't also make note of the warm cookies that mysteriously appear in the sitting room as you enter the home in the evening. We could not have asked for nicer accommodations for our stay in Virginia. I will add, Lovington, VA is located in Nelson County, best know for its vineyards, craft breweries and independently owned distilleries. In addition, Nelson County is filled with gorgeous and challenging hiking trails. The Blue Ridge Mountains are all around and make for a stunning view as you relax around the fire pit in the evening at Orchard House. I can't recommend this B&B enough!
The mountain views were lovely, as was the vineyard, beautiful historic home, and furnishings. Our wonderful hosts were one of the main reasons we came back. Last, but not least, we have stayed at many bed and breakfasts , but the gourmet breakfast we had here was by far the best.
Wendy and Jay were just great hosts. They made us feel welcome from the time we arrived until we left. The room are large, comfortable and well appointed. the breakfasts were large portions and delicious. Our hosts knew the area well and could help us with all of the information we needed to tour the are. Great people coupled with a good location made this a most enjoyable stay.
We spent a most pleasant 2 days with the folks at Orchard House. This was out second visit and we plan to return. The area offer wonderful scenery, great vineyards and wine tasting, positive dining experiences, and a relaxed environment. The new pool if great as well.
Mike and Deb were the perfect hosts at Orchard House, a beautiful, quiet property just south of Charlottesville. My sister and I loved the comfort and charm of the Apple Blossom farmhouse, and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! We both highly recommend this tranquil B & B. When you visit, make sure to watch for the bunnies that hop around the lawn at dusk!
I stayed at the Orchard House Bed & Breakfast with my girlfriend for a quick weekend getaway. I found the B&B by pure happenstance on Google and I could not have been more pleased with the establishment. The grounds are beautiful, the service from Michael and Deb Verplank was friendly and welcoming, and the room was gorgeous and well-supplied. It's a wonderful home-base as you tour local breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries. We will definitely be returning.
