The Inn at Willow Grove • Kath Eats

Right here’s a recap of our romantic go to to The Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, Virginia. 

A fast one-night getaway

I instructed my mother-in-law some time again I don’t need any items apart from essentially the most treasured reward of all: time! So her Mom’s Day reward to me this 12 months was an evening with our boys so Thomas and I may escape for the evening. We had been so grateful! It’s wonderful to “simply” be grown-ups for an evening. 

We researched all the same old locations to remain inside a 1-2 hour radius of Charlottesville and determined upon the Inn At Willow Grove. My sister, who’s a journey agent, did all of the reserving for us. This was our first go to and we hope to return! 

The Inn At Willow Grove

Nestled on 40 acres in the course of Virginia countryside, the Inn at Willow Grove is positioned in Orange, Virginia (additionally house to Woodberry Forest Faculty should you’ve heard of it!). It was a few 45-minute drive on winding roads from Charlottesville to Orange. 

The grounds are anchored by the principle home – a restored historic house courting again to the 1770s. It homes the reception, Classic Restaurant & Pub, and a few of the inn’s rooms. 

Be careful for the butler! 

There are 25 rooms complete between the principle home and cottages throughout the grounds which are named for what I imagine they initially had been: the Butler’s Cottage, the Smokehouse, the Schoolhouse Cottage. Some are registered historic landmarks. 

Our room: Creekside Cottages

Our room was Creekside Cottage East (no. 6) and was shiny and ethereal with a beautiful king-size mattress and balcony. We beloved the view! 

The Rest room

The Mill Home Spa Pool

We didn’t have time to do something enjoyable on the spa, however we did get to sit down by the pool! The climate was simply heat sufficient.

Whereas the pool is marketed as heated, it was not very heat. (It was additionally not freezing). Thomas did a pleasant chilly plunge! They’d a bar by the pool the place you possibly can order snacks or a drink, which was a pleasant contact. 

Dinner at Classic Restaurant

We modified for dinner and headed over for a drink on the bar earlier than our reservation. You’ll undoubtedly need a reservation at Classic as a result of people from the group come too. Our journey was considerably final minute and we virtually didn’t get a reservation, however we lucked out.

The Pub

We each RAVED about our cocktails. I had a Bourbini which was bourbon, vanilla bean syrup, orange, and Prosecco. Thomas had a margarita-style drink with tequila. 

We additionally shared a cheese board which was generously adorned! 

Dinner was wonderful 

We had been seated in a personal room with a view of the entrance garden!

The bread with salted butter, amuse bouche, and entrees had been all great. I had a crab cake with carrot ribbons, greens, and fava bean hummus. 

Pleased Anniversary

Everybody stored wishing us a cheerful anniversary and we simply rolled with it. I figured my sister had checked that field when she booked the room. Once I despatched her an image of our dessert, she jogged my memory that it WAS our anniversary – the anni of our engagement! We had each forgotten – haha! 

This chocolate mousse with caramel and peanuts was sooooo good! 

French press + beignets

A plus of the Inn is they create you French press espresso (or tea) and beignets for breakfast proper to your room! How pretty. 

Breakfast at Classic

We went again to Classic for omelets and extra espresso earlier than heading again house. 

The Inn at Willow Grove is an attractive escape from Washington, DC, or Charlottesville, and there’s lots to do within the space from vineyards to mountain climbing to James Madison’s Montpelier to the cities of Orange and Culpepper. We might completely return for one more keep – hopefully an extended one too!
