In order to support local growers and vendors, the inn attempts to buy ingredients for meals, and other products from local sources. This keeps business in the area flourishing and the inn gives back to its community.
Iris Inn has several package options which guests can book to enjoy various activities or attractions. There are even guided tours arranged of shopping districts, historic sites and wine tasting rooms. This gives guests a chance to explore the local area without having to plan it out themselves. There are many hiking trails surrounding the inn for guests to explore the region and enjoy the Blue Mountains. Within an easy driving distance is the birthplace of four presidents—Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and Woodrow Wilson, as well as various historic military sites. Guests will also never go hungry because there are plenty of eateries within Waynesboro, Charlottesville and Staunton.
While there isn’t a spa at Iris Inn, there are packages which can be booked where guests can enjoy in-room massage treatments. This also includes couples massages, perfect for that romantic weekend getaway or anniversary celebration. Massages need to be pre-arranged before arrival.
Within a 9 minute drive, guests can access public play at the semi-private Waynesboro Country Club. They feature an 18 hole course which accommodates all skill levels. It is a par 72 for the gentlemen and 73 for ladies. The scenic views of Blue Mountain Ridge create a peaceful, gorgeous experience. There are several water hazards and out-of-play areas which gives players a challenge to be as accurate as possible. Guests should contact the club for tee times.
If guests are looking for a casual golf experience with other activities such as mini-golf or night golf, they could head to Waynesboro Golf and Games. There is a par 3 course, mini golf, night golf, and arcade games indoors with food options on-site. This golf center is about 10 minutes drive from Iris Inn.
