We were so incredibly fortunate to book this last-minute, as this and other local B&Bs were booked for a wedding, but the Schoolhouse room (separate from the main house) was available! We were thinking we would need to board our dogs, but with encouragement from the innkeepers, we brought them along, as the property has a few miles of walking trails and the Schoolhouse is pet friendly. They even provided dog bowls, treats, towels, and blankets!

Mayhurst Inn is the perfect place to stay if visiting Montpelier (main item on our weekend to-do list), and there are plenty of activities and restaurant options nearby in Orange and historic Gordonsville. Be sure to have BBQ at the BBQ Exchange! (The breakfasts at the Inn were generous and delicious - we didn't want to miss them...and the Inn offers discounts and passes for local activities.)

Next time, we will need to bring our bikes, as the innkeepers put together a nice binder full of cycling routes to get out and enjoy the countryside. Also, we would hope to book a kayaking expedition at Rapidan River just to the west. As it was, we were able to take a country drive to the Shenandoah and hike the White Oak Canyon trail with the pups on our last day. Beautiful, demure waterfalls and moderate hiking in perfect Spring weather.

Thanks for all you did to make us feel at home and comfortable with our little getaway, Mayhurst Inn!

Room Tip: B&B schoolhouse is THE choice for introverts with dogs

The hosts were very helpful in suggesting wineries and restaurants in this historic area. They provided discount passes for the wineries and for Montpelier. The inn'a architecture and decor was outstanding, especially the 11 foot arched windows. Breakfast was delicious.

Mayhurst Inn is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Monticello, Montpelier, Ash Lawn, wineries and civil war sites. Innkeepers Pat and Jack are the best hosts I have experienced. Rooms are large, inviting and fully equipped. The grounds are beautiful. The history of the house is part of your stay. Breakfast was delicious and not overly gigantic. We loved our stay here and hope to return!

We stayed for a weekend and has a very comfortable room with a wonderful breakfast. The owners were very helpful in giving us suggestions and providing free coupons for wine tastings in the area. They also had wine and cheese offered in the evenings.

Room Tip: The grounds were pretty

This is my second stay and the Mayhurst Inn visiting a nearby corporate client. Its a charming and large place. What stands out is the host and hostess. They are remarkable catering to your every need. The breakfast was great.
