Why Stay at the Iris Inn
Heidi and Dave Lanford invite you to experience the Iris Inn. Relax, refresh, and renew yourself in a modern, 1991 purpose-built Virginia retreat that overlooks the Shenandoah Valley from a 12-acre Blue Ridge mountain top.
Enjoy wine tasting at any of the 28 wineries within 30 minutes of the Iris Inn. Learn from history while visiting the homes of four former U.S. presidents, all within a one-hour drive from our bed and breakfast.
Do you enjoy the outdoors? Explore hiking trails and overlooks at Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway, only 3 miles away.
How about theater? Take in a show at one of the many nearby theater productions. Try out delicious cuisine at restaurants that exemplify the farm-to-table revolution in today’s dining.
After enjoying area attractions, return to the inn for a complimentary wine and cheese hour with your fellow guests. Partake from the “bottomless” cookie jar for a sweet treat.
Celebrate your anniversary or birthday with in-room champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Surf the web with our free Wi-Fi, while unwinding on a deck swing. Soak your cares away in a two-person Jacuzzi or an outdoor hot tub, or relax with your own in-room massage.
The next morning, awake refreshed to a hot cup of tea or coffee while observing the wildlife that finds its home in the surrounding forests.
Play catch with our in-house border collie, Katie. (Just don’t say “tail,” or you will wake up the entire house!) From 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., enjoy a full service breakfast beside the crackling fire of the 28-foot Great Room. Depart rejuvenated and renewed with memories you can share with loved ones for days to come.
