This was our second time in this B&B and we really liked it in both occasions. It is located in a wonderful spot perfect for someone who is leaving DC and wants to spend a night in rural Virginia on his/her way towards the mountains, like we did. Hosts are nice and friendly, the building is old and wonderful, and...

The Grey Horse Inn is a very nice old home nicely situated in The Plains, VA. We found the house nice and clean with plenty of charm. We have an expectation of very good service and warmth when staying at a B&B versus a hotel. Sadly, we did not find those things at this Inn. Administratively, the owner John does...

EllenHearty, Owner at The Grey Horse Inn, responded to this review

We do not normally respond to reviews whether good or bad. We appreciate all reviews even those that are not necessarily "positive." We appreciate any feedback because it helps make us better. However in this case (Just OK), we feel that some explanation is necessary because the issues were with me and not specifically with the rooms or the Inn....

My husband and I stayed one night at The Grey Horse Inn. The inn itself is impressive if you are looking for charm. The house has been decorated with antiques and provides a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. We were the only guests (I think) the night we stayed and it felt like we were at home! The room was clean...

My wife and I , unfortunately, had only one night to spend at The Grey Horse Inn. We frequent B&B's often and we both rate Bryan's inn at the very top. Beautifully decorated, wonderful background music, large, comfortable rooms and wonderful sitting rooms with WiFi. An absolutely fantastic breakfast sent us on our way. We'll be back and we've highly...

We've stayed here many times for family gatherings over the holidays. This Christmas was extra special with the arrival of our first grandchild. John and Ellen were warm and welcoming and made us feel right at home. They were selfless in seeing to our comfort and making sure we enjoyed the very best from the kitchen (I especially enjoyed the...

I had the most wonderful time when I stayed at the Gray Horse Inn in The Plains, VA. I was welcomed by one of the owners, John when I drove up to this beautiful Victorian home. He took the time to show me around the house that had this wonderful delicious smell of fresh baked cookeies that made my mouth...

I am a landscape photographer who loves to photograph out of the way places. The Greyhorse Inn is particularly interesting to me because of its close location to Shenandoah and Great Falls National Parks. I also enjoy photographing the many local wineries. I frequently visit this area and would never think of staying somewhere else. On occasion I bring my...

I had a business trip to The Plains in November and stayed in the Shenandoah room which has a lovely and comfortable four-poster bed. The inn is nicely decorated and very clean. John and Ellen are thoughtful and gracious hosts. Morning breakfast was wonderful - strong coffee, fresh canteloupe with yogurt, homemade scones and quiche. Yum!
