The Inn was comfortable and a good choice for our extended weekend. Unfortunately the restaurant and the pub were not open during our stay, but we were given gift cards to use at the Art of Coffee each day. The Art of Coffee had a nice variety of omelets and other food options. The rooms were nice and the ability to control your room temperature was a plus. Other items of note: the Inn offers free WIFI and ample parking. However, the room did not come equipped with a TV or a fridge. This was fine for our purposes, but may be problematic for others.
We were travelling during the Covid shutdown to visit family who were camping nearby at Westmorland State Park.....we are not campers! What a charming place in this fairly remote location! The owner Beth was so helpful and charming, and on a Tuesday night we were alone at the B&B. The rooms are charming and spacious. It was sad to see the lovely downstairs areas all empty since the restaurant and Pub are not open now. Our stay included a gift certificate for a great breakfast across the street. Hope their business comes back when this pandemic is all over!!
We went to the Inn for dinner last weekend. We had an excellent meal with outstanding service, good wine and the ambiance was beautiful. Saturday night at 7:00 and No One else there. This beautiful place served us 4 outstanding entres, a bottle of Pino Noir, 3 mixed drinks and unlimited, melt on your mouth rolls...all for less than $40.00 per head. I hope this place makes it. They are putting out a great product, they just need more activity. I’m definitely going back. Fingers crossed for u guys.
Around the back of this place is The Pub. A nice little bar with a decent food menu. They have specials through the week, Thursday was Taco night. Several options for the tacos and they were good. I also had the sliders. Three choices with cheese burger, bbq pulled pork and fish. Draft and bottled beer options as well as mixed drinks. Small town atmosphere with decent prices and service. Clean place and would visit again if in town.
We had a great time at the Inn! Our plan was to do a mini-vacation/get away. The Inn at Montross was a perfect choice. Bob, the owner is very friendly and personable. We really enjoyed talking with him. The Inn was the perfect launching point for many area wineries. Unfortunately, most antique shops were closed and appear to open only on the weekends. But with the State Park nearby as well as many historic landmarks (e.g., George Washington's birthplace) there was plenty to do. Our room was spacious and comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast is made to order! We highly recommend the Inn and plan to return next year.
This is really a great B&B, We went mid-week, were warmly welcomed by Bob and shown to a beautiful room. We went to the small but interesting museum next door, then drove into the countryside and got to a winery just before closing. Not many restaurants are open mid-week and we wish we had eaten pub food at the Inn rather than where we did eat. Meals served Thurs thru the weekend in the dining room sound great. The bar upstairs is charming and the pub downstairs is humming. After our morning breakfast, we even got to meet Max. The B&B and restaurant are elegant, but the atmosphere is casual and friendly.
My wife and I only live an hour away but decided to go down with another couple and hit a few wineries and then stay at the Inn and enjoy the Pub that evening. It is much more laid back then any other B&B I have ever stayed at. The owner Bob is easy to talk to and carries on an easy conversation. I can't remember her name but staff member from Demark was very nice. Our room was large including the bathroom. Very clean except for the blow dryer was sticky. The Pub was full with locals to see a very good band but Bob made sure he reserved us a table and even helped serve us dinner and drinks personally. The food was very good but then again I am easily swayed with tater tots. The breakfast the next morning was prepared to order and enjoyable. A very nice and relaxing place.
We went for a special dinner with my mom and stepdad before Thanksgiving, and we've enjoyed meals in the Inn's charming rooms before. So it was a bit of disappointment that we were taken out of the cosy lounge and put in the chillier front room. My duck entree was okay, but my boyfriend's steak was rather tough, with relatively uninspired vegetables with it. It seemed the chef was trying to hard, without getting the elements to hang together. We look forward, though, to giving them a try again to see if they'e found their stride.
We just spent a relaxing weekend at the inn at montross. We checked in early and despite the full house we were promptly shown to our room, the general Washington. Nicely decorated and comfortable with a good size bathroom. We took at walk around town and drove down to westmoreland state park for a kayak paddle. The park is only ten minutes away or so. Check out fossil beach while you are there to try finding some sharks teeth. Be sure to check out the montross brewery a quick walk from the inn. They happened to be closed while we were here because of an unexpected sell out of beer during a fund raiser the weekend before but we hear great things. We wandered to the basement to try a few beers at the pub and enjoyed visiting with the other patrons. Taylor was our bartender and she did a wonderful job. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much we decided to stay for dinner. The lobster bisque and roasted red pepper bisque were delicious. As was the homemade ravioli and rock fish bites. Be sure to stay for Sunday brunch. You will get to not only enjoy delicious food but you can visit with Taylor, zach, and Helen while you enjoy your meal. The owner, Bob, was delightful. So friendly and warm. He made a point to walk around and visit with everyone. The whole place had a real loving family feel. Keep up the great work. Give this place a try. If you like great food, comfortable lodging, and friendly staff you won't be disappointed. …
I was invited so was unable to make comment on the evening, which is a shame, because I always like to speak personally when things could so easily have been corrected. The front room, requested by our host, was uninviting and cold, not a good start, particularly as this is America and I usually swelter. The waitress was very good and made us feel at home, which is what this place is or should be about, its in a beautiful colonial style setting. The menu, from first glance, was good, short but to the point and covering all that is required. The wine menu, again not vast, covered more than the essential and was reasonably priced. A glass of local wine surprised me with its flint dryness, a delight. But the food, it was fresh is the best I can say, it had pretensions of being good but it never quite got there, it was a jumble of colours and textures squashed helplessly together on a plate that was too small to offer any chance of being an appropriate canvas. My fish was perfectly cooked but was lost in less than good acompanients, that, if served in less mass and proximity may have complimented rather than detracted. Its an easy fix; the chef needs to get out of the kitchen and look at what has and is happening in the beautiful world of food, the price point remains the same but the quality is enhanced. We will be back in few months for a further visit on business, we'll try again.…
