We thank Mike and Deb so much for sharing their home and property with us during an unexpected trip to Lovingston for a family funeral. The room was great and the food was delicious! We were able to reflect on our loss in an environment that was so pleasant and welcoming. I highly recommend the Orchard House for any trip... More

My bride and I decided to get away for Veterans Day weekend and get our mountain 'fix'. We live in eastern NC where everything is flat so it is nice to go west and enjoy the mountain views. We picked Orchard House due to its central location in Nelson County. Mike and Deb were very friendly, accommodating hosts. They are... More

Thank you for the wonderful review and observations! We thoroughly enjoyed having you here and are excited for your return this spring. We promise the bunnies will be plentiful again when the spring season arrives. And we are confident we have the whole temperature thing figured out now that the chillier mornings are upon us.

The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast was our very first B&B experience. They set the bar extremely high for the next one we go too. The room was warm and cozy, the food was outstanding and the hospitality is something we will never forget. We cannot wait to go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mike and Deb! The location provided an easy drive to Appomattox and to Charlottesville, and is just a half-hour north of Lynchburg.

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
