I had visited Barboursville last year and had a great lunch in the Palladio so I decided to stay this year with my husband. We stayed in Sangiovese cottage which is cute, and when we asked about what time breakfast was served the next morning, they told us it was already in the refrigerator in the room (we checked in at 3pm). We were disappointed that we would not be having a hot breakfast as this is part of the b&b experience. We walked to the Palladio to have dinner and found a note on the door that it was closed for the day. I wished Lisa, the inn keeper, would have let us know before we booked the cottage that it was closed. In the morning we microwaved our now day old 2 very small slices of quiche that we heated up in the microwave, no toast, and sliced fruit that was wilted and moldy strawberries. I opened the yogurt to find it was rancid and out of date. Very disappointed in this inn. Maybe if you stay in the main house it might be a different experience.

Don't be surprised if Thomas Jefferson stops by your room to ask if all is well. The 1804 Inn (vintage Jefferson) consists of a main building with three to-die-for suites (we prefer the Octagon Suite) plus other rooms in other historic buildings. The suites in the main building are midbogglingly large, well furnished and comfortable. The price for the night includes a daily bottle of Barboursville Vinyard wine, a cheese plate and a full -- an unlimited full -- breakfast in a communal, formal dining room. Lunch becomes unnecessary. Lisa, the Inn Keeper for Barboursville Vinyard, treats the Inn as her own, and we all benefit. And the views from the large plantation porches! Lakes, cows, vinyards, and hills. The world class Palladio restaurant is a few steps away, and some other very good restaurants are a short drive away. Don't miss this one.

We love visiting Barboursville Winery and have been visiting for a few years so when we heard that they had an Inn we had to go and stay, we were celebrating our Anniversary and we stayed in the Phileo Suite in the 1804 Inn and it was just amazing, lovely brick floors, beautiful antiques and bed linens very comfortable surroundings indeed
You can walk to the ruins and walk to the winery for your complimentary wine tasting and the grounds are just beautiful for a long walk
They have wine of your choice and a cheese plate on your arrival, a fridge in the kitchen to help yourself to drinks and cookies
We had dinner that evening in the Palladio Restaurant which was just amazing complimented with wines with each course and the breakfast the next day was a great selection of fruit or yogurt to start then eggs, bacon, sausage with lots of coffee, perfect to start us off on our trip back home
We will be back very soon

We stayed in the moscato suite. It was gorgeous. We had a sitting room, kitchenette, the bedroom and bathroom were upstairs. We stayed the last weekend in February for my husbands birthday. We had two couples with us who stayed in their own separate suites. One of the couples asked for a red bottle of wine and got a white. The gas fireplace was very nice, and the cottages were well heated. The wine left in the refrigerator for us, a prosecco was delightful. It was a relief not to have to shop for a place for breakfast, as it was included, fruit, coffee, tea, quiche, pastry, etc. They even left a birthday cake for my husband. Definite time for couples only, no TV in the cottages. Very relaxing, we had an amazing time.

Room tip: If you dont like stairs, dont stay in the moscato suite. There were small flights in other cottages

Spent a wonderful mid-January weekend in the Barbara cottage and found it beautifully rustic, comfortable and romantic. Both architecturally and texturally interesting: softly aged and worn marble tile floors, rough-hewn white washed wood beam ceiling, traces of stone foundation visible in the interior walls - all nicely restored and up-dated for comfort – creating an interesting juxtaposition between rough and plush.
The staff is friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The room presentation is impressive and every consideration appears to be taken: a small table is set with a bottle of wine a small cheese plate, crackers, fruit, fresh muffins and two wine glasses, etc .
Wine tasting is included.
A mini-fridge is stocked with quality drinks, snacks and other goodies, including a sweet little surprise birthday treat. The fridge also contains breakfast items for the following morning. The breakfast is offered in a rather unique style, which seems to elicit variable reviews. For me, it was perfect: wake up late, lounge in front of the fire (albeit a single compressed wood “log”), and prepare our little meal at leisure.
Walking to/from the ruins and winery is a perfect chance to enjoy the larger surroundings. The grounds are beautiful in winter, revealing the contours of the land and un-obstructed views.
I find the information, descriptions and virtual tour video on the website to be honest and accurate. Advance knowledge of the breakfast arrangements will help to alleviate disappointment. There are other cottage arrangements on the property and, of course, more luxurious and traditional rooms if the quiet, simplicity of this particular cottage is not your thing.
