Despite Covid-19 restrictions & some less than stellar weather (it was winter), our stay @ Hope & Glory was awesome. Our only regret was that the neighboring vineyard was closed for the season. With that said, our hosts Peggy & Dudley were incredibly accommodating & served a delicious breakfast to our cabin door each morning. The evening meal we enjoyed compliments of Chef Meseret (maestro of the kitchen!) was nothing less than spectacular! I could go on but simply put if you are considering a stay here, just do it! We are planning a return visit in the Fall...and take your dog with, our boy loved it there too!

A long overdue thank you Kev, the etiquette experts say it okay; but, I apologize. You were extremely complimentary and we are grateful to have guests like you. We value the adjectives you used to describe us as they are superlatives: awesome and spectacular. Thank you! We look forward to your return Fall visit. Dudley, Peggy and Meseret

Peggy and Dudley Patteson are wonderful owner/hosts and their H&G Inn reputation is well-deserved. From the tasty home-cooked breakfasts to the fire side cocktails late at night. Highly recommend their wonderful boutique Inn for taking a break from whatever ails you. Can't wait to return during the Spring and Summer in the Northern Neck. Thank you for your sincere hospitality. Peace+ Dan & Nell Heneghan

We had an absolutely delightful experience at this Inn. The owners and staff were all so welcoming, attentive, helpful and accomodating! The personal attention was truly appreciative and definitely exceeded our expectations. Chef Meseret's level of customer service was outstanding. Her culinary talents made our anniversary weekend a fabulous gastronomical event! Peggy really took the time to provide us with excellent recommendations. We also really appreciated the COVID preventative measures and compliance that they took, as that is a primary concern for us at this time. The breakfast delivered to the door of our cottage every morning was such a nice touch. We loved having the bikes to use around town and used them to travel to the vineyard which was just down the road. The staff at the Dog and Oyster were also so friendly and down to earth. Just an all around nice place to have a special get away!

EKJ Thank you for your flattering review. Hospitality can be demonstrated in multiple ways and your description of us as “welcoming, attentive, helpful and accommodating” made us feel we succeeded in showing you true hospitality. Breakfast delivered to our cottage doors has been a great success and we are likely to continue it post pandemic. Who can complain about our version of “room service”. You too appreciate our Chef and we appreciate you describing our dinner as “ a fabulous gastronomical event”. We hope you will decide to return. We embrace change; and, we are likely to offer you some new experiences. Dudley, Peggy and Chef Meseret

We've been to Hope & Glory several times through the years, and with each visit we are greeted as if we are beloved family members! We especially love the two story cottages with a living area below and bed & bath above. The gardens are always lush and beautiful, no matter the time of year. Peggy & Dudley know how to give visitors a lovely and welcoming experience, even in these days of COVID. We had a most delicious dinner, prepared with TLC by Chef Meseret (a more lovely lady you'll never meet!). Each bite a taste sensation! All the dinner guests were socially distanced on the beautiful patio, and warmed by not only patio heaters, but the good spirits of the chef and staff. Every morning a delightful breakfast was delivered to our porch at 8:30, to be accompanied by in-room coffee. One of our favorite things to do in Irvington is grab a Hope & Glory bicycle (free to all guests) and explore the lovely little town. We had (and have always had) a memorable time at this warm and beautiful B&B!

TerriB_12, , We consider your review a “warm and beautiful” depiction of the Hope and Glory experience. Staying with us several times is quite the compliment; and, we truly thank you. Our beautiful patio and Chef Meseret does make the dining experience memorable; and “each bite” is “a taste sensation”. Peggy, Meseret and I look forward to your return. Dudley, Peggy and Chef Meseret

My kids gave me for my 75th birthday gift, two nights at the Inn. When my husband and I arrived, we were met by Chef Meseret who told us about the history of the Inn and our offerings there. She took us to our two story cabin and we fell in love with it immediately! Unfortunately, because of the chilly temperatures, we couldn't take advantage of our private patio or sit on the front porch. Peggy and Dudley the owners, were so gracious and welcoming to my husband and me throughout our short stay. The breakfasts were yummy and delivered by a staff member or Dudley both mornings. The second night, we ate inside the Inn and had one of the most delicious dinners. Chef Meseret prepared an amazing dinner that consisted of two of our favorite foods which are oysters and crab cakes. Her crab cakes were by far, the best we've EVER eaten!!!!!! Chef suggested a perfect wine that complimented our outstanding meal. We are hoping to return next summer to go for a tour on Dudley's boat, enjoy the beautiful pool and of course, have some more exceptional food.

G60260Kthomasb, Saying Chef Meseret’s crab cakes were “the best we’ve EVER eaten!!!!!!” was an accolade that stands on its own; one that Peggy and I cherish; and, Meseret earned. Delighted to see we will see you next summer. Thank you for choosing us during this pandemic. As you experienced, we are truly COVID safety sensitive. Dudley, Peggy and Chef Meseret
