Chestnut Hill ranked among top B & B’s in country

Troy and Kathleen Ayers bought a historic home in Orange, Virginia for $1 at an auction in 2003. Nearly 10 years, many renovation dollars and thousands of pleased guests later, the Ayers have transformed that $1 home into one of the most highly rated bed and breakfasts in the United States.

Chestnut Hill recently received the “Top 10 Award” for United States B&Bs in the 2012 Best of BedandBreakfast.com® Awards. BedandBreakfast.com is the most comprehensive global site for finding bed and breakfast properties around the world, with more than 13,000 properties worldwide representing nearly 80,000 rooms. The Top 10 Award is based on traveler votes.

The award names Chestnut Hill one of the best in the country for travel experience, hospitality and customer service. And it marks the third time in the inn’s three years of eligibility that it has won a Best of BedandBreafast.com award—a first for any B&B in the competition.

“We are so overwhelmed to win this award,” says Kathleen Ayers. “There a lot of great B&Bs out there, and it’s an incredible honor to be recognized as one of the Top 10 B&Bs in the country.”

The accolades also are gratifying to the Ayers because of the tremendous effort involved in restoring the home. Terms of the auction sale of the property required the couple to pick up and move the house to an adjoining piece of property to make way for an access road to ease traffic congestion for a new middle school. After saving the property from being torn down, the Ayers had to renovate it—a six-year undertaking through which Troy and Kathleen took great care to preserve the master craftsmanship of the historic home, which was built in 1860 and has been placed on Virginia’s Register of Historic Places.

In addition to its history, the Ayers say their commitment to hospitality and customer service sets their Charlottesville-area inn apart. “Customer service is the most important aspect of our business,” says Ayers. “We do our best to anticipate what type of stay our guests are looking for, and then we do whatever we can to help them achieve it.”

Warm, elegant and inviting, Chestnut Hill is an all-seasons destination for weddings, vacations, romantic getaways, reunions, corporate retreats and parties and celebrations. The location in Virginia’s wine country provides a cozy alternative to “cookie-cutter” hotels as guests are treated to a charming southern experience with luxurious guest rooms, gourmet breakfasts, wine and cheese tastings and a beautiful setting.
