Southern Living Magazine's October 2019 issue features a four-page spread on the Virginia Foothills. The "Virginia Foothills" are what we here at the Inn define as “an undiscovered oasis of rural sophistication and gracious living” located between the hubs of Washington, DC, Richmond and Charlottesville, Virginia. The Inn at Willow Grove is a proud founding partner of the Virginia Foothills, in concert with other local businesses including Barboursville Vineyards, BBQ Exchange, James Madison’s Montpelier and the Market at Grelen. You can read more about the Virginia Foothills at vafoothills.com and follow the coalition on social media @vafoothills, #vafoothills.
Southern Living Magazine highlighted the beauty of Virginia’s fall season, which residents and natives herald as Virginia’s finest season given the cooler temperatures and beauty from the changing leaf colors. The article guides readers through our small town of Orange, Virginia, calling it a “little hamlet with all the charm and character you could hope for.” The Inn at Willow Grove is pictured several times and mentioned as “one of this area’s most striking inns.” The author, Julia Rutland, goes on to share the story of our owners, David and Charlene Scibal, who stumbled upon our “fixer-upper estate” in 2008 and reimagined it to the current state after extensive renovations, completed in October 2010. The Inn’s history is briefly detailed with mention of Orange County’s original schoolhouse, which now serves as a cottage on-property that overnight guests can select for their stay. David and Charlene were interviewed for the article and they highlighted our two restaurants, Vintage and Forked on Main. Our culinary team changes the menus at each location seasonally, but Shrimp and Grits and Mac & Scratch fried chicken are staples... as you would imagine here in the Virginia Foothills.
