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!
