My wife and I recently took an overnight trip to go to a concert in Charlottesville and to visit the area. Our stay at the Holladay House was a highlight of our trip. It is perfectly located to accommodate visits to some great local wineries, do some antiquing, and make stops at Montpelier and Monticello. We stayed in the Oak...

We stayed in the John Madison suite for 3 nights in March, 2017. We very much enjoyed our stay. The suite is generally spacious and has a separate sitting room with a couch and chair for watching TV. We also enjoyed spending time reading in the library downstairs. Breakfasts were tasty and nutritious and varied from day to day. We...

You all "squeezed the juice" out of Orange during your stay! Not everyone gets to Four County Players, the longest running local theater in the region at 42 years! I grew up near Broadway and the DC Theaters, and my picky-self is ALWAYS impressed with the level of productions Four County Players puts on. Just another reason to visit this...

I planned a surprise wine tasting trip for my boyfriend and I and The Holladay House helped make our first vacation together relaxing and enjoyable. The hosts, Sam and Sharon, were extremely personable and accommodating. They emailed me to confirm the reservation in the Ivy Suite and ask if I wanted to add-on any packages or relaxing services. Sharon worked...

Sharon and Sam are great hosts in a beautiful home with rich history! We stayed in the Madison room and were very comfortable. We had a great time and hope to have opportunity to go back! Breakfast was amazing - Creme Brûlée French toast, local bacon, juice, great tea and coffee. It was a perfect stay for us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our host on arrival offered us an upgraded room at no additional charge. She also provided guidance to local sights and restaurants for dinner. The public rooms were pleasant, and we were offered a choice of music. The room was spacious and immaculately clean and had a modern private bath. The room temperature was comfortable,...

We picked the Holladay House in Orange based on its excellent reviews and location. Sharon was very helpful ahead of time in recommending stops and buying/sending discounted tickets to James Madison's Montpelier and providing passes to various wineries. Her efforts optimized our time in the area. Accommodations and breakfast (creme brulee french toast) were excellent. Highly recommended for a relaxing...

I hadn't been to the Holladay House in a while. The house was decorated so elegantly for the holidays, and it was as welcoming as ever.
