The Iris Inn is a hidden gem that is perfect for a romantic retreat or a base of operations for local exploration.
The Inn offers 9 very spacious rooms and suites, some with fireplaces, whirlpool baths, and private porches, one with a kitchenette, and all with king sized beds, refrigerators, wifi and beautiful views.
Six new Couples Cabins are also available, with full sized kitchens, washer and dryer, and hot tubs on a screened porch with expansive views.
Each day brings a multi-course breakfast and a complimentary evening wine tasting.
The inn feels remote, but is only minutes from Interstate 64 and offers easy access to the Shenandoah Valley, Central Virginia, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Shenandoah National Park and some of Virginia’s best wineries.
For a wine trail trekker in search of the best of what Virginia has to offer – both in wine and tasting room aesthetics – you can’t do any better than the Iris Inn as a base of operations for a good sampling tour.
