The Inn at Vineyards Crossing

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

The Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia welcomes the Inn at Vineyards Crossing to its list of inspected and approved members! Built in 1787 as Barbee’s Tavern, the B&B originally served as a haven for Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War. This Tavern Building remains a unique element of the Inn at Vineyards Crossing as it features original chestnut logs and stone mortar along with three original fireplaces.

The Inn at Vineyards Crossing was open in order to “provide a superior B&B which entails tight partnerships with local wineries, hunt clubs, and other local attractions.” These partnerships allow the Inn at Vineyards Crossing to serve guests with not only an upscale stay experience but with amenity options that turn the area from a ‘place to stay’ into a ‘destination.’

A BBAV membership allows Vineyards Crossing’s innkeepers to “comply with a set of basic standards, which are all minimum basics in the hospitality industry,” thereby “giving the consumer confidence in booking a stay.” In other words, membership with BBAV allows Vineyards Crossing to provide guests with the best experience possible, helping Innkeeper, Josh Haugh to provide a superior stay experience.

“Having the ability to interact directly with our guests, building relationships with our guests and creating memories for them, giving them a reason to return.” And so, the Inn at Vineyards Crossing provides the ideal destination for those looking for an interactive, welcoming, and memorable experience away from home.

Welcome to BBAV, The Inn at Vineyard Crossing!

New Year’s Eve in Virginia

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010
Lets cheers Happy new year 2009

Spend New Year's Eve at a Bed and Breakfast Virginia.

Consider spending New Year’s Eve in a Virginia Bed and Breakfast. Inns have a much more intimate feel than large, corporate hotels; you won’t have to worry about landing next to a huge hall party and not getting any sleep (as regretfully happens from time to time). Instead, you may relax in common areas, toasting the New Year with a handful of other guests, or welcome 2011 privately in your room after an evening out.

Several Bed and Breakfasts Virginia offer New Year’s Eve Specials. Some provide dinner or arrange for guests to dine at a nearby restaurant. Many provide hors d’oeuvres, Virginia wine, and champagne toasts on the 31st, and at least one goes all out and puts on a masquerade ball.

Outstanding breakfasts become brunches on New Year’s Day. Enjoy the first meal with coffee or a mimosa. Sleep in first, or get a good start on those resolutions and walk or run before heading to the table.

Whether you like to be in the city or the country, with friends or with strangers, there is a Virginia Bed and Breakfast just right for you.

Virginia Bed and Breakfasts are Romantic

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

It’s true. Whether you are drawn to mountains or the sea, urban areas or the country, you will find Virginia bed and breakfasts ideal for romance. We are not limited to romantic getaways, but we do excel at them.

Right off the bat, you’ll find Virginia Bed and Breakfasts romantic. Our member inns exude warmth – something that instantly sets us apart from corporate hotels. Charming settings, unique furnishings and unparalleled hospitality greet couples as they enter their home away from home. In the winter, roaring fires crackle invitingly in hearths. During warmer months, the cool shade of porches is irresistible. The inns foster relaxation, quietude, and good humor – all essential for romance.

Many Bed and Breakfasts Virginia offer romance specials and packages to help set the right mood. Share champagne or wine in your room, accompanied by rich cheese plates or decadent chocolates. Treat yourself to a couple’s massage. Sink into large jetted tubs. Some inns offer dinner by candlelight, while other innkeepers may partner with the most romantic restaurant in the vicinity.

The perfect romantic getaway is different for everyone. There are couples who find nothing more romantic than a long hike through the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, while others prefer urban areas and an elegant dinner at a four-restaurant. No matter what defines the ultimate romantic weekend for you, there is certainly a Virginia bed and breakfast that will make your dreams come true.
