We stayed here on a trip between NYC and Washington DC. The Inn is charming, the room was perfect and Kim was a gracious host. The Inn is perfect for a getaway. Highly recommended. The common areas and the whole building has real charm. Breakfast was excellant.

My family and I got three rooms at the Vandiver, and we very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms are full of character and charm, and many come with a small side room with a day bed, a fridge, and a microwave. The grounds are nice, and there is plenty of parking in back for guests. We were served a... More

The building needs maintenance. It is an old building which should make it quaint; but it is getting run down. Looking simply at the paint on the back of the building tells a story. Our room was quaint on the inside and the bed was fine. Bathroom facilities were adequate. One window was so dirty I pointed it out to... More

It became quite evident that their Wedding Venue business is their first concern. I caution people to not book this so-called B&B if there is a wedding reception going on. I didn't know they had this business until after I booked. At any rate, the inn itself is lovely, but my husband and I never felt we were really a... More

Dear Jeanne, While we are happy to hear that the room was lovely, clean and comfortable, and you enjoyed our little town, we are of course disheartened to hear of your customer service experience. As a boutique lodging and event center, it is sometimes difficult to balance the needs of all the different kinds of guests, especially on weekends. Over... More
