“A wonderful B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2006

My wife and I have stayed at the Grey Horse Inn 4 times now, and it's time to write a review to share this wonderful experience with others. It's a lovely place with spacious and impeccably clean rooms, a very accommodating staff, and a relaxing atmosphere.

The owners, John and Ellen are delightful, and they know how to make their guests feel at home. The breakfast room is sunny and bright and the food has been excellent. And for dinner, a very good restaurant is a 10 minute walk to the main street of town.

Our rating for The Grey Horse Inn is 5 stars in all categories and we will definitely stay there next time we are in the area!

My wife and I have stayed at the Grey Horse Inn at least twice a year for the past three years. we found this Inn three years ago and were so impressed by the professional staff, warmth of the rooms, hospitaility, and willingness to assist in any of our needs.

We have recommended this Inn to all of our friends who travel to Virginia and we intend to continue to stay at this fine establishment when attending the Spring and Fall steeplechase races and Great Meadows Park.

The willing staff will make reservations at the area's numerous restaurants and attractions. If you require special attention, again the staff will attempt to meet evry need. we have never felt rushed, pushed, or imposed upon during our past seven visits.

If you are seeking a loveli Inn situated in one of the most beautiful villages in Virginia we highly recommend the Grey Horse Inn. I have included my e-mail address if you wish to have further comments regarding this terriffic Inn.

My husband and I stayed in the spacious and beautifully-decorated John Marshall Room (my husband's namesake). Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the wonderful aroma of homemade cookies, which Melissa immediately offered to us. She then gave us a tour of the B&B, and a view of all the rooms (as we were the first ones to check in). They were all so beautiful. Complimentary port, sherry and wine available for the guests, as well.

With innkeepers like John and Ellen, and help like Melissa, who were all so eager to help us and make us feel so welcome, as well as the delicious breakfasts and other goodies, we left this charming place spoiled, satisfied and eager to return. Hospitality is a gift, and we thank them for sharing it so freely with us. We give this B&B a five-star rating!

There are wonderful area restaurants, such as, The Rail Stop (previously owned by actor, Robert Duval, who still visits frequently, especially for lunch, when in the area; Frogs and Friends in Marshall; The Red Fox Inn, Middleburg.

A visit to this lovely B&B is a MUST!
