Troy, Kathleen & Wedding Team,
Troy, Kathleen and their wedding team have this entire wedding thing fully and completely wired for sound and that's not an understatement! They were there for us during the entire process. Bonnie and I labored over what wedding experience we wanted to have and narrowed our choices down to about five venues in the Shenandoah mountains. Ten months before we were hoping to have our wedding we visited the Chestnut Hill BnB to sit down with Troy and Kathleen to begin the selection process. The venue was perfect! Troy and Kathleen were super receptive to what type of experience we were hoping for and they knew exactly how to tailor our wedding to make it the most special event imaginable. While there we sat down with Troy to discus our wedding and this is where we immediately saw how genuine Troy and Kathleen are with their operation. The only options they suggested were meant to ensure mine and Bonnie's wedding was perfect for us. There was never an up-sale or pressure to be overly extravagant; only what Troy and Kathleen thought would be best for us.
We didn't even consider another venue as we knew Troy and his staff would provide us the perfect wedding day. Communication throughout the entire process was prompt and very concise. Bonnie and I are both excruciatingly busy and having the peace of mind that the Chestnut Hill staff was taking care of our wedding was so comforting.
When the day came it couldn't have been easier! The staff took outstanding care of our guests as well as covered every detail.
Thank you again for a flawless wedding weekend! Seriously, the wedding experience so far exceeded our expectations for what we had hoped our wedding day would look like. You guys are really performing a huge service to couples yearning to start their marriage out right. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We loved helping make all of your wedding day dreams come true! Your ceremony was incredibly heartfelt, and your sparkler send-off was one for the books! We hope that you and Bonnie will come to stay with us again soon!
Chesnut hill B&B is a GREAT place. We had our wedding there. Not only did we get to take in the breathtaking views of the venue, but we also had the experience of staying in the hotel itself. The chestnut hill team is nothing but welcoming and professional. They did such a wonderful job with our wedding and we received so many compliments. Troy and Kathleen were awesome and so are their coordinators and staff. We had staff on the premises during the entire wedding. We stayed in the bridal suite, but other guests loved how comfortable but also historical the rooms looked. They cook a breakfast in the morning and it is delicious! I cannot thank everyone enough. I would highly recommend not only getting married here, but also enjoying a mini vacation at this wonderful place!
Thank you so much for your kind words Rachel! We all loved working with you and Tom throughout your planning process! We can't wait to see your photos, and we hope that you come back to visit us soon!
Chestnut Hill B&B was the perfect place to have our intimate wedding. From the moment I saw pictures of this place, I knew it was going to be exactly what I wanted, and my now husband and I were not let down when we went to visit. Troy and Kathleen were so sweet and inviting, even offering out pup some water on our visit. For a bride who was working full time as well as attending grad school full time and didn't take any time off for her wedding, I can not emphasize enough that this process was completely stress free! I gave them my ideas and they put them into action just like that. The day of the wedding was no different. Our guests were treated with respect and everyone raved about the venue, food, and service. Kathleen and Troy were even sweet enough to entertain our puppy when we went to dinner that night and we came back to her snuggled in bed with them. For animal lovers, like myself and my husband, this was priceless. The bedrooms were gorgeous, breakfast was great, but the experience is definitely what made it all worth it. I would not have wanted it any other way. I wish I could do it every weekend! Thank you so much! :) With love, Kati, David & Lima Bean
Thank you so much for your kind words, and for you and David's willingness to share Lima Bean with us for the day! Your wedding was so much fun to plan, and we always love having visits from our animal friends! We hope that the three of you will come back for a visit!
Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast is elegance at its finest. I knew from the very first time we laid our eyes on the house this was THE place and ONLY place to have our wedding! The owners and staff at Chestnut Hill put us at ease for the biggest day of our lives from the very beginning of the planning process. They never made us feel as though we were asking too many questions. If anything, they welcomed our questions and concerns. They treated us like family! The day of our wedding they WERE our family! Kathleen, one of the owners even took our four-legged daughter, Paris for a walk!!!! Simply put Chestnut Hill was our "Paris" in the summer time. Thank You so much Troy, Kathleen and Lea for your professionalism, your responsiveness and most importantly, your quality of service. Chestnut Hill is in our opinion a Five Star Bed & Breakfast!
Not only is the venue absolutely gorgeous, the team at Chestnut Hill was the best hands down! The ceremony, reception location and guest rooms are all beautiful. Anything we needed help with the Chestnut Hill team was there to lend a hand. If you're looking for your typical, run of the mill venue this is not your place. If you want to wow your guests and have the best wedding weekend call the team at Chestnut Hill. I promise you wont be disappointed.
My husband and I are very happy with the quality of the service we received at Chestnut Hill. The wedding was very stress free and fun. We loved having Troy & Kathleen to touch base with throughout the planning process and with any questions that arose. Chestnut Hill is beautiful - exactly what we were looking for!
Elegant, intimate, romantic elopement. Kathleen and Troy sure know how to make a couple feel special. We enjoyed a two night stay in their beautifully appointed home, Breakfast was served in the elegant dining room and was heavenly. We dined each morning in candlelight after descending the stairs to the sound of beautiful music. Kathleen is a beautiful gracious hostess. Friendly, helpful and fun. Troy is a fantastic chef and Katrina provided wonderful service. The facilities are top notch. Their attention to detail apparent. We contacted Troy 3 weeks prior to our wedding. We decided to elope after a 5 year engagement. Troy was very accommodating. Kathleen is also an officiant. She created such a meaningful ceremony. Her words touched our souls. She and her assistant Kinsley provided unexpected a rose petal path for me to walk on. Kathleen displayed the cake we brought so beautifully. She served us complimentary champagne and shrimp cocktail. Their kindness and the special touches they provided were unexpected and so nice! If you are looking for a beautiful elopement, this is your place! If you are having a traditional wedding check out their unique glass tent in their beautiful yard. Serious WOW factor. The Bridal Suite is off the hook!!! Book this venue!!! If your wedding is somewhere between elopement and traditional full blown wedding please book this place. The possibilities at this gorgeous venue are endless. The wedding of your dreams is waiting for you at Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast. A huge sincere thank you to Kathleen, Troy, Kinsley and Katrina for being a part of our wedding and making our stay so memorable.
From the moment we met the inn owners, Troy and Kathleen, my (now) husband and I felt comfortable and well taken care of. Troy and Kathleen conduct many weddings in the year, but they both made me feel like I was their only bride. They responded to emails well within 24-hours and even made sure we were accomplishing everything that needed to be taken care of for the wedding. Nothing was impossible and it was obvious that their sole goal was to make sure we had the wedding we dreamed of for us and for our guests. Their genuine honesty shone through in each of their responses and was much appreciated throughout the process of planning. Additionally, they were ready and willing to help out with any personal touches needed in order for our vision to become reality. We had the pleasure of staying in the bed and breakfast for two nights and I cannot say enough good things about how luxurious yet comfortable our stay was. Our breakfast was delicious and we felt pampered during our stay. I will be forever grateful to Troy, Kathleen and their team of wedding coordinators who made our day and the process of planning a wedding nothing short of blissful.
Kathleen and Troy made our fancy elopement perfect! Everything from the pre wedding details all the way to the cake cutting went flawlessly. The day of they were both there to help coordinate and made us feel calm and comfortable that everything would be perfect. The room was beautiful and comfortable and the breakfast was phenomenal every morning. They remembered us by name every time and treated us like family. We will definitely be staying there again for future getaways!
Kathleen, Troy and their entire team were phenomenal! Words can't express how perfect everything was! They made our wedding an amazing experience. Kathleen paid great attention to detail and was always a step ahead, I didn't have to worry once about anything. From start to finish everything was beyond what I could have expected. Breakfast was fabulous, as well! The whole experience was relaxed and stress free!
I absolutely loved Chestnut Hill. I originally visited on a gray day and even then it was beautiful. It was even more beautiful on the sunny wedding day. The biggest reason I chose Chestnut Hill was all they offered for the cost rather than having to get everything piecemeal. Linens, tables, chairs, the tent, wedding officiant, and other things were already included. I would have paid significantly more for everything they provided. All I had to find was the caterer, DJ, photographer, and hair and makeup person. They had a wide list of suggested vendors and even the vendors that I went with that weren't on that list and I found on my own had worked there and really liked the venue.
The tent wasn't your average tent with ugly grey poles, much more high class. They had the fancy portapotties which my guests were impressed by. Everyone there was very nice and flexible for my needs. I discovered last minute that I needed an extra table to be able to fit my guest gifts and they quickly brought in another table and linens.
My bridesmaids and I chose to spend the night before at the Inn and they had everything set up even though we arrived late at night due to the rehearsal dinner elsewhere. My husband and I and a number of the bridal party/family stayed the night of the wedding as well. The rooms were comfortable and very nice. I'm not normally a fancy food person, but the breakfast the morning of the wedding and day after tasted amazing.
The only thing of note is that there are train tracks nearby and occasionally we could hear the train. There were parts of the house where the train couldn't be heard (the lower rooms especially) for those who might be bothered by it. I personally don't mind the sound of trains and I only heard it once or twice during the day, so I didn't mind. It was a small inconvenience (and nothing in life is perfect, but Chestnut Hill came close), and it's unlikely to be an issue for people just coming for a one-day wedding event.
As a professional cake designer, I have delivered wedding cakes to a variety of locations. I can say that without a doubt, Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast has been one of the most accommodating, organized, and beautiful venues I have had the pleasure to work with. The staff was incredibly helpful, the house itself is absolutely gorgeous, and the grounds are immaculate. This would definitely be a venue I would be happy to work with again!

Troy is as invested in your wedding as you are (sometimes it feels like more so!) and his team is incredibly helpful, flexible and accommodating. We were long distance and not always in VA, so their team helped make the planning process go smoothly. We had an excellent time working with them and all of our guests loved the venue. Highly recommend them!
Booking our wedding at Chestnut Hill was the best decision we could have made. As soon as we visited the property we knew that that was where we wanted to get married - and we even visited on a day when it was raining! Troy (the owner) just made us feel so comfortable and we could tell right away how knowledgeable he was about hosting a wedding. Troy and the wedding coordinator, Leona, were wonderful during the planning process. Leonna handled more of the details - making sure we thought through various items and provided all the information we needed to - while Troy would call just to check in on us and see how all the planning was going. The day of the wedding everything went off without a hitch. Chestnut Hill was very flexible, the property looked absolutely beautiful, the staff was so helpful and friendly, and thanks to Troy and his wife Kathleen's organization and experience the ceremony was perfect. So many of our guests came up and told us that it was one of the nicest weddings they'd ever been to and so much of that had to do with Chestnut Hill. When you book here, you're not just booking a venue, you're enlisting the help of some amazing wedding professionals who know how to help make your day everything you want it to be.
I don't even know to begin to describe our amazing experience that we had with Troy and Kathleen. Let's see, first off, the grounds are IMMACULATE and so is the inside of the house. Their customer service is top-notch. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and when I tell you STUNNING, there is no comparison. I've seen many bed & breakfasts while searching for a venue for our nuptials and none of them compared to Chestnut Hill. They put a lot of thought into the details of your stay. Various lighting choices, multiple pillow sizes with squishy and firm choices. The bathroom is GORGEOUS! A claw foot tub and a glass-enclosed shower made for 2. They even have all-natural soap which was perfect for us because we only use natural products at home. The food was delicious! We had an organic parfait, Grand-Marnier french toast and they provided us with turkey meat options when we told them we don't eat pork, very accommodating! After our ceremony we had shrimp scampi over linguine, so good! They also gave us fresh fruit and cheese, and I mean FRESH! Everything was so good. I'm pregnant so no alcohol for me, but they still gave my husband a choice of champagne for him and cider for me. Kathleen was our officiant and she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I would absolutely recommend her! Leona, the wedding coordinator was great too. Since I'm pregnant my emotions and decisions have been all over the place. But she was very patient and very helpful. I'm not the type of bride that dreams of weddings so I didn't have an idea of what it is that I wanted and all my husband asked for was that I wear a veil, lol. You will have absolutely no regrets in having your wedding at their venue. It's beautiful and intimate enough for a wedding for just the two of you but also large enough for a grand wedding. Their staff was very kind, helpful, and attentive. We have ZERO COMPLAINTS and wouldn't change a thing!
Thank you so much Yolanda for your kind words! You and Justin were a dream to work with and your photos turned out amazing. We are always happy to accommodate brides who are expecting and wish you and Justin both health and happiness as you embark on this new journey together. We can’t wait for you both to come back and visit us here at Chestnut Hill!
If you want a beautiful outdoor venue, this is the place! The tent is included along with attentive owners and staff.
We at Chestnut Hill really enjoyed having you stay with us! You were awesome and we’re happy to know that we’re able to make a good impression for Holly and Brian’s wedding. The entire bridal party was absolutely phenomenal and we hope that you come back soon to visit.
When Brian and I walked through the door at Chestnut Hill we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding! Once we met Troy & Kathleen there was no question. The entire staff at Chestnut Hill was amazing. They did everything to make our weekend and wedding stress-free, and it honestly was....stress-free! All of our family and friends complimented how wonderful the venue was and how impressed they were with everything!
Brian and I are truly blessed to have shared our wedding day with such wonderful people. We both thank you (Troy, Kathleen, and Leona) so very much!! We cannot wait to come back and visit :)
Thank you so much Holly for this kind review! You and Brian’s wedding was absolutely magnificent and facilitating your wedding was as stress-free for us as it was for you. We genuinely enjoyed having you both at Chestnut Hill and can’t wait until you both return for a visit!
Troy and Cathleen are amazing people with an amazing Bed and Breakfast! We fell in love with Chestnut Hill the first time we arrived on site. We knew it was the place for our wedding. Once you go to the top of the hill and see the grounds you will have no idea that you are in the middle of a little town, it feels so secluded. The fountain was the perfect site for our ceremony and the tent was exactly what we were looking for, the location was perfect for our outdoor wedding vision.
Troy and Kathleen worked with us through the entire process and were always responsive and accomodating. They helped coordinate vendors, held meetings onsite, and helped us wirte our ceremony. They catered to our every need and made sure our wedding was perfect. We had our Rehersal Dinner at the Inn also and they arranged for the tables and chairs to be ready for that. All of our guests that started at the Inn received 5 Star treatment and are still talking about what a wonderful time they had at Chestnut Hill.
Troy and Kathleen thought of everything..they organized last minuet Valet service for the Rehersal Dinner, made special arrangements for my husband and me to have Gluten free foods, lead the Ceremony, and ensured that everything went smoothly. I honestly can not say enough about Chestnut Hill and Troy and Kathleen. Would make the same decision to have our wedding here again and again.
You will NOT be dissapointed with this venue!
Thank you so much for choosing Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast as the venue for your wedding. Your June nuptials were amazing we and are glad to know that we provided you with the best service possible that made your wedding a dream come true!
We had the wedding our dreams!!! Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast exceeded our expectations. The food, accommodations, and staff were exceptional! I would highly recommend to anyone!
Thank you so much! We at Chestnut Hill always strive to go above and beyond for all of our ceremonies and your's was no different. We hope to see you again soon!
When a place is a nice and wonderful as the Chestnut Hill Inn Bed and Breakfast, 5 stars are not enough. We booked this place sight unseen for our April 25th, 2016, elopement, it far exceeded our expectations. We live in NJ, in addition my husband works outside the country so we were not able to visit before the event. Kathleen, Troy and their wonderful staff went above and beyond to make this day amazing and special. They made sure even the smallest of details were attended to. The grounds were gorgeous and the food was delicious. We only had about 13 people and all of the guests were equally impressed with the professionalism, friendliness of the staff, you felt like a friend not a guest. We had our ceremony at 12:30, our dinner reservations were for 6, so we needed to fill time. At Chestnut Hill not only do they help plan a memorable day but they also help plan anything you need outside of the wedding, so we had them book a limo that took us to a winery for a few hours, then from there to dinner. I can't praise the inn and it's staff enough truly making the day perfect!
Thank you so much Kellee for choosing Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast for your ceremony! You and Ed looked wonderful and we can't wait to catch up with you again for your next visit to the Bed and Breakfast. Thank you so much once again and we are glad to know we made your wedding a special day!
We did the elopement package with them. Not what you would think. They take every thing that normally comes with a large complicated wedding and squeeze it all down into a short manageable event with little to no stress. They took care of the ceremony, officiant, wedding planner, cake, flowers, music, reception, champagne toast, first dance and food. Not to mention the rooms were amazing. I couldn't imagine having a better day for a better cost.
This place is a gem atop a small mountain. My wife and I had our wedding here this past weekend and it couldn't have been a better experience. The staff were very friendly and professional. The owners make it a truly personal experience throughout the entire process to make sure you enjoy not only your big day, but your everyday stay. The value you get from this venue is unbelievable. I plan on spending a lot of time here throughout my years. I cannot show enough appreciation to Chestnut Hill for their exceptional services and attention to detail that is out of this world!
Shout outs to Troy, Kathleen and Leona!
Ps. I'm going to need that recipe for the french toast that I fell in love with during my stay.
Thank you so much for this glowing review. To be referred to as a gem let's us know that the service and commitment to excellence is one of a kind. We'll continue to strive to make sure everyone's stay at Chestnut Hill is one of a kind just like yours!
We eloped at Chestnut Hill on October 1, 2015. I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had at this beautiful inn. The owners and staff made our day flawless and so very special. They thought of everything from the flowers to the cake. They recommended the best restaurants in the area, while providing the most amazing breakfasts. The inn and especially our room were immaculately kept. All in all, it was the most amazing experience and my husband and I cannot wait to return to this lovely place for our anniversary.
Kim your elopement was beautiful! Thank you so much for your kind words and we can't wait to have you and your husband come back and stay with us.
Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast was the perfect place for a wedding and reception. Troy and Kathleen are the owners of the B&B and they certainly are wedding experts. The B&B were by my side the entire time during my wedding planning process. They helped me find vendors, they gave me suggestions with things, they would get back to my right away if I had a question. And they were so nice and patient with everything! The ceremony site has a beautiful garden with a fountain were we got married and right next to it is a beautiful permanent tent to use for the reception. We received a lot of compliments from our guest on how beautiful the grounds were. There are so many awesome photo opportunities there due to all the beautiful gardens and landscapes. I felt very much at ease the day of my wedding because the staff made me certain that they had everything under control, which they definitely did! I have to say If you go with a venue like Chestnut Hill, you wont go wrong and your wedding day will move very smoothly. I can't thank Troy and Kathleen and their amazing staff enough for all the did for us!
Chestnut Hill was an amazing venue, and the owners are wonderful people. Through the planning process, Troy would call periodically to check-in and see how things were going or if we needed anything. He always had recommendations for vendors when we needed them, and everyone he recommended was awesome. Then, once the planning was done, Troy and Kathleen showed us how truly above and beyond they were willing to go to create a perfect wedding.
As my MOH and I were travelling to Chestnut Hill, they called to check on our progress and even booked us dinner reservations at a local restaurant when we were running late. When a groomsman's truck broke down the day of the wedding, they arranged for a mechanic to meet him on-site at his hotel and take care of the repairs. This was all handled quietly and behind the scenes, so I didn't even know about it until it was done. They also helped my MOH arrange a very last minute, very huge detail that truly made our wedding ceremony perfect. And as if all of this weren't enough, they breakfasts will put any 5 star restaurant to shame. Kathleen is an amazing cook with unique and creative dishes that pleased even the pickiest of eaters. There are not enough positive words to completely describe our experience with Chestnut Hill, so simply amazing will have to do.
Thank you so much Sarah for this glowing review! We always try to make sure that we go above and beyond to ensure that our bride's special day is one to remember. We look forward to having you and your husband coming back to visit!
