“Wonderful place to visit, stay and get married!” Reviewed April 26, 2013 NEW
My husband and I recently got married at the Conyers House Country Inn and we could not have picked a more perfect spot! The location was excellent, the view of the mountains was beautiful, the house was over 200 years old and had so much history it was amazing and the owner was awesome :) We had never been there but after reading about it online and talking with Saundra (the owner) on the phone we knew this was the place to go. This was not our first marriage for either of us so we just wanted some place quiet, beautiful and special and that it was. The Inn itself is so beautiful and has so much history~we stayed in a room that the sink in the bathroom had once been in the white house!! Saundra graciously showed us around and told us to look in all the rooms as we were the only guests the first night. She recommended a restaurant to eat at and the food was really good. The next morning the breakfast she prepared was delicious and we enjoyed eating in the kitchen where we could talk with Saundra and her helper. The wedding itself was outside and she had lots of flowering shrubs and trees that made for a beautiful backdrop and she performed a nice, simple, meaningful ceremony and both of us ended us with tears in our eyes. She recommended another outstanding restaurant for us to eat at after the ceremony and they even made a little wedding cake for us. We also had a massage therapist come to the inn and give us massages in the afternoon before the wedding and she did an excellent job. The next morning there were 3 other couples for breakfast so we ate in the formal dining room and again the food was great! We are already talking about going back to visit again and a lot of that has to do with Saundra's great personality and job as a hostess:)
Room Tip: Ask to get a room with a porch so you can sit outside and enjoy the view!

What a lovely surprise to find this enthusiastic review on my screen. This couple enjoyed everything I suggested and certainly added to the success of the restaurants in the area. Friday night they went to The Madison Inn, Saturday night after their massages here followed by the wedding here (and honoring me by asking that I conduct the ceremony), they had cocktails at Blue Rock restaurant to enjoy the glorious view (grazing horses, overlooking the pond, overlooking the vineyard, with the Blue Ridge foothills in the distance) then dinner at the Thornton River Grille where a wedding cake for dessert awaited them. The only thing they didn't get around to was a trailride which is beautiufl beyond measure. I bet I'll get them to ride the next time they come. And the groom promised to play his guitar for me the next time he comes. Matter of fact I bet he takes his guitar to Madison Inn the next time, too. to join the others who pick and sing on Friday nights.
