A quiet getaway situated on 23 acres of sprawling green land, Nellysford Country Inn is a cozy oasis for anyone visiting Central Virginia.
Owners Richard and Mary Tousignant have dreamed of starting an inn for years. The Vermont-natives fell in love with Virginia’s picturesque mountains and friendly people. They wanted to create something that would be relaxing but also healthy and organic. We’re happy to say the guests at this inn sleep on Savvy Rest organic mattresses (so we know they’re treated quite well).
Read our interview with Richard and Mary to learn more about this tranquil Nellysford getaway.
Why did you want to start an organic and eco-friendly Inn?
Richard: It’s how we live. It’s our lifestyle. We looked for a Bed & Breakfast for five or six years and we couldn’t find anything that really jumped out at us and then we came here and it had everything we were looking for: area for the horses, beautiful building, beautiful grounds. We thought it was a perfect spot to set up our inn.
Mary: The great thing about having to start with nothing was we got to make all of our own personal choices. And the beds were a big part of that. We wanted to give our guests the best bed we could.
R: We shopped for mattresses for about eight weeks and looking at all the different types. Nothing compared to Savvy Rest.
