Air port sitting

A travel blog entry by mompoole


... no fuss. Even the security people are joke steers. Dad and I are sitting and waiting, using our iPads like we know. What we are doing . There are a few things I still can't figure out on this . Wondering when I send this if I am sending double copies?... Next communication will be from the hotel. Love. ...

The extended crush debacle

A travel blog entry by thythekat

"It was awkward. It was like I've got to call Sarah and see you at 5.15pm!" Kasper rightly calling me out. Didn't realise until it was said. "She's one to take advice from?!" Sarah and her Lee situation despite her encouragement to the Kasper. Needed this push in that direction "Can I have a hug" it happened twice. That as a bit awkward tbh ...

The dare scenario. Shit

A travel blog entry by thythekat

"Aww that's so nice!" Kasper's reaction to the dare. Could have been worse "I wish you had told me earlier" This got me in a huge tizzy. Hated it. Didn't ask the question at the time to confirm what exactly that meant "I just thought you were thinking we wouldn't leave as being good friends" because of the way he put it down or so he thought although I didn't receive it that way at all. Still good friends yes ...

One More Down and A Lot of Driving

A travel blog entry by dblegldave


... on a hill (formerly called Signal Hill) and the property was once owned by Johnson himself. It's now run by the National Park Service. Johnson was what Constitutional scholars called a "strict constructionist." That is he loved the Constitution of the US and believed in a strict interpretation of the document rather than implying powers that might not be there. There is a large marble obelisk marking his grave and that of his ...

A Special Shout-Out to Civilian Conservation Corps

A travel blog entry by garylesser


... Conservation Corps did not construct the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. The final stretch of the Parkway was completed around Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina, in 1983. The Parkway is entirely in two states: Virginia (our ride today) and North Carolina (our ride tomorrow). Its highest point is 6,053 feet on Richland Balsam Mountain. The speed limit is never above 45 MPH, which is a good way to guarantee a leisurely and safe ride.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Iris Inn Waynesboro

    Iris Inn the perfect getaway!!


    Our stay at the Iris Inn was fabulous. Heidi and Dave really know how to "take care" of a couple. They made reservations at the South River Grill, their recommendation just perfect. Arranged theater tickets and a couple's massage in the room. The breakfasts, hospitatlity, and amenities were top notch. The decore was fabulous, finding a new painted creature you hadn't noticed before. We visited the inn for our anniversary, and would highly recommend it to any fellow traveler!!

    Absolutely Wonderful - Stay Here!


    My now-husband and I stayed at the Iris Inn during our mini-honeymoon in November 2007. This place is simply the BEST. Dave and Heidi are wonderful hosts, and the property is gorgeous. There are little touches everywhere - we were always noticing another little detail painted on the walls. Breakfasts here are delicious - each day started with a fresh fruit cup and then we had eggs, waffles, pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, you name it! Dave was always there to answer any questions we had, from where to go for a run to where to taste wines to where to eat dinner. They even made a restaurant reservation for us and called that evening to personally confirm with the maitre d that he'd take care of us - and when we got there they'd sent us champagne! When my husband mentioned that he likes chocolate chip cookies, a fresh batch was waiting for us in the morning. Some B&B owners still seem to be figuring out how much to talk to the guests vs how much to leave them alone, etc ... Dave and Heidi really strike the perfect balance. They even seated us with another young couple we'd enjoyed talking to the day before at breakfast and reminded us where to sit so we wouldn't miss out on talking to them again. There aren't enough good things to say about the Iris. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

    An Wonderful B&B


    Stayed here for two nights in early October in between longer stays at the Greenbrier, Keswick Hall and Inn at Little Washington. It surpassed our expectations in every way. We stayed in the spacious, private Garden Path Suite and enjoyed the breakfasts, wine tastings and generous hospitality provided by Dave and Heidi Lanford. Definitely the place to stay when sampling the area's many wineries.

    Just About the Best


    New owners Dave and Heidi Lanford had no previous B & B or small inn experience, but they seemed like old pros to us. The Iris Inn was spotless, our room (the Wildflower) was large and comfortable. The bed was excellent. The common area had a nice ambiance, and we enjoyed chatting with Heidi over glasses of wine. She made reservations for us at the Staunton Grocery restaurant, and it, too, was excellent. Iris Inn breakfasts were also excellent, thanks to the hosts and their reliable assistant Cindy (Heidi calls Cindy her "angel").

    Nice Getaway


    My husband and I and my in-laws enjoyed a night at the Iris Inn this past Sunday night as a belated Christmas present. The rooms were a nice size with lovely furnishings.

    We appreciate that they went out of their way to make a gluten-free breakfast for my in-laws. We enjoyed the pumpkin pancakes very much.

    The Inn is on 11 acres yet very convenient to I-64.

    The owners were very hospitable and friendly. The South River Grill they suggested for dinner was a very good choice.

    I wish the owners success in their endeavor.

    Loved the Room


    Great secluded inn but close to many area attractions. Innkeepers and food were great. Best of all room was spacious and had a great private hottub. Great for a romantic weekend. Have been twice and definitely plan on going back.

    Excellent Stay


    We have just returned from a tour of the Virginia area and this included three nights at the Iris Inn. We were well looked after by the hosts Bob and Barbara who helped us to find local restaurants and perfect our daytime schedule.

    The hotel is in secluded grounds but not too far from the highway and town. The rooms were scrupulousy clean and tidy and have all the extras you require.

    Although the hosts are leaving and have sold the inn the character of the rooms should remain and the inn is an ideal base for the Skyline and Blue Ridge Parkway.

    Great Stay!


    We were given a stay at this B&B as a gift. We have stayed at several other B&B's in the Shenendoah valley, and we were very pleased with our visit here. The rooms were very comfortable, and Bob and Barb, the owners, were very gracious. The property is a little larger than your typical B&B, which in some ways was nice providing a little more privacey than some. They took the time to show us the property, and many of the enhancements that had been made.

    Nice little inn


    Lovely room, friendly owners and a fabulous breakfast.

    A Wonderful Mountain B&B


    After a day of hiking in Shenandoah National Park or touring in the Valley, the Iris Inn is a wonderfully quiet place to unwind. The inn is meticulously maintained and the breakfasts are delicious. The owners, Bob & Barb, are eager to help you enjoy your stay in the area. Perfect for a weekend or a week. One of the top B&B's in which we have stayed.
