I have been blessed to travel all over the world and stay at amazing hotels, eat great food and have experiences that a person from central PA would never have thought possible. Next to the Emirates Palace (literally a 7 star hotel) in Abu Dhabi, Chestnut Hill is the best place I have ever visited. You have to go there!

ABOUT Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast
The Inn at Chestnut Hill was built in 1860 by a local tanner named Alexander Daley, who was one of the founding members of the Town Council here in Orange, Virginia. The name Chestnut Hill came from the abundant Chestnut trees located on the property. Unfortunately, those trees were destroyed during the blight of 1910.
In 2003, the home was sold by way of absolute auction to Troy & Kathleen Ayers. One of the terms of the sale was that the new owners must move the house to an adjoining piece of property to make way for an access road to ease traffic congestion for the new Prospect Heights Middle School. With renovations finally complete, we are honored to announce that Chestnut Hill has been placed on Virginia's Register of Historic Places.
Upon your arrival at Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast, you'll immediately embrace the southern charm and welcoming greetings from the Innkeepers, Troy & Kathleen Ayers. Join them for a glass of wine from some of Virginia's award-winning wineries at our evening wine & cheese tasting before heading to dinner at one of the local restaurants. Or, just relax and unwind with an interesting book from our well-appointed library or watch a movie on the 62-inch plasma television in our entertainment area.
