Foursquare Tips

  • ** 1/2 stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom's tip: Expect a twist to dishes when you visit this restaurant.)
  • The patio is the place to sit in nicer months, but the dining room with dark wainscoting and burnt-orange walls is wonderfully cozy.
  • Astoundingly good. One of the best restaurants in the region. Try the rockfish saviche and the smoked beef loin. Wine list is truly inspired.
  • Charming, upscale experience with impeccable views of the Virginia countryside. The patio is an excellent place to enjoy an unforgettable meal looking out into an expansive valley courtyard.
  • The Ashby Inn offers six guest rooms upstairs ranging in price from $155 to $195 a night, including a "full country breakfast" and the chance to dream on.
  • Each of the four small dining rooms has its charms; our favorite is the booth-lined, pumpkin-colored lower dining room, with alluring landscapes by local artists.
  • "You think about things here in the countryside, in an Inn with poor cellphone reception. It's gentle flavors, and tiny touches--in a touchscreen-free zone.
  • "A pale pink soup tastes more like watermelon than the watery fruit itself, and wows with its subtlety." - November 2012 Issue
  • Try the Chocolate Covered Paw Paw - Never had heard of the native North American fruit called paw paw....sort of a cross between a banana and mango. Amazing dessert!
  • Try the Pork Belly Sandwich - Absolutely Ridic. I almost ordered 2!!
  • Try the roasted chicken breast - With cabbage dose
  • Try the Brussels Sprouts - With lardo!!
  • Try the Dill Pickle Cashews - What an amazing flavor combo
  • Great breakfast, loved the potatoes
  • Kings riff on deli standards ingenuously weaves together house-cured pork jowl pastrami, caper-studded Thousand Island dressing and pickled Kohlrabi. - November 2011 issue
  • Tarver King is one of the best chefs in VA.
  • Stay in the Schoolhouse and get the seven course tasting menu at the restaurant. Then you don't have to drive after dinner!
  • The Inn is absolutely lovely - stay in the Schoolhouse if possible. Breakfast is wonderful and DO try to eat at the Inn for dinner at least one night - you will not be disappointed!
  • go hit appalacian trail at sky meadows then to ashby inn for dinner, cocktails. can't beat it.
