A Message from our new Owner!

Dear Friends,

It’s truly a privilege and honor to be writing to you as the new owner of the Iris Inn. This is a new venture for me, and was born from my interest and passion for travel, and the experience of how hospitality can truly enhance and uplift the experience.

I have been fortunate to be able to travel to very interesting places both domestically and globally over the years, sometimes for business reasons, and sometimes with my wife, Yelena, and some or all of our five children.

There is no better feeling than arriving at your destination to find your accommodations are all you dreamed they would be, or better yet, even beyond your expectations. My interest and passion for travel turned to an interest in becoming part of the experience and over the recent years I began researching aspects of the hospitality industry and looking into specific properties.

On my first visit to the Iris Inn I was amazed by the beautiful views out over the Shenandoah valley towards the Allegheny Mountains and the clean and modern appearance of the buildings and guest rooms.

As I spent more time at the Inn over the last months I also became impressed with the personal care and touch that Dave and Heidi had as owners and the team they had assembled along the way. The Iris Inn is a great team, they all share a heart for hospitality. I couldn’t be prouder to be partnering with them.

Although we respect and honor all the great things built along the way, the Iris Inn team is looking into ways we can enhance the guest experience even more. We want you to experience the beauty of Virginia with our nearby scenic wonders and abundant attractions.

Your comfort is just as important to us while you are on-site. With that in mind we will add some common area features on the grounds like hiking trails and outdoor patios/fire-pits, along with added areas inside the main Inn such as an exercise room, additional lounge space and common area seating.

We are excited about these additions and know they will add to the already wonderful experience that exists at the Iris Inn.

It’s a great time to be part of this special place and we can’t wait to share this with you. We hope you will always let us know how we are doing and most importantly what can we do to enhance your experience.

Hope to see you soon!

Brad Dickerson
