Some people make New Year’s Resolutions. Travelers make travel plans! And there are many reasons to visit our Shenandoah Valley b & b. From the business retreats to vacations, we’ve got 7 reasons to make the Iris Inn a beautiful stop on your way to everywhere.

Business Meetings & Retreats

Iris Inn Meeting Room
It’s no secret that employees get more accomplished outside of work. Free from distractions, bring your team to the Inn to recharge and refocus.

Or host your business meeting with us. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and plenty of privacy, your employees can relax and let the ideas flow!

All it takes is about 15 minutes for us to convert our Deep Woods Cottage into a meeting room to host up to 18 attendees.





Instead of burdening a family member with the responsibility of hosting, preparing food, and cleaning up after a family reunion, why not have us do it?

You can rent the entire facility and begin your day with a warm, hearty breakfast in the Great Room and then take advantage of the many area attractions nearby! Or, relax in a rocking chair and enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
