Member Feature: Steeles Tavern Manor

Once upon a time in the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was a countryside bed & breakfast. The idyllic setting was enhanced with a babbling creek, a glistening pond, and a lush, mountainous view. Think this is a fairy tale? Nope, it’s BBHSV member Steeles Tavern Manor Bed & Breakfast.

Owned and run by Ray and Melissa Alexander, Steeles Tavern Manor and its sister property Alpine Hideaway Cottages are a serene retreat in a busy world. The bed & breakfast dates all the way back to 1916, a manor home that has since been converted into a cozy yet modern inn. Rest at ease in one of the vinously named B&B rooms with their flat screen, HD TVs, fireplaces, fuzzy robes, and free WiFi. Choose the Cabernet Franc Room, the Viognier Room, the Norton Room, the Petite Verdot Suite, or the Chardonnay Suite.


If you’d like something a bit more secluded, then the aptly named Alpine Hideaway Cottages are at your service. You have three cabins to choose from—Ivy, Sunset, and Pond View—and each offers brilliant views, luxurious amenities, and peaceful surroundings.


And then of course, there’s breakfast. What would a B&B be without its morning meal? “The coffee starts brewing just before 7:30 AM every morning. Inn guests come down to the Dining Room starting their morning with a hot cup of coffee or hot tea and a sweet surprise.” Feast on French toast soufflé, blueberry pancakes, Southwest quiche, sausage, frittata, bacon, and more.
