Innkeepers Heidi and Dave Lanford preside over the immensely popular Iris Inn, a modern, purpose-built retreat that overlooks the Shenandoah Valley from a 12-acre Blue Ridge mountain top.

The inn seems to grow larger and more beloved each year. In addition to the half dozen large rooms in the Main Lodge, the inn now offers treehouse cabins with personal hot tubs on the deck, and large private cottages (nearly 800 sf) with small kitchens and fireplaces.

Amenities include evening wine tastings, bottomless cookie jar, free WiFi, and full breakfast.

Iris Inn is well located for exploration, including 28 wineries within 30 minutes' drive. Also nearby are homes of four former U.S. presidents, hiking trails and overlooks at Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway, and farm-to-table restaurants.
