The grandest visions start small.
In 2003, Troy and Kathleen Ayers saved a historic house in Orange, Virginia from the oblivion of a wrecking ball for the price of just $1. From that humble beginning through its extensive renovation, Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast has emerged as an internationally recognized Inn, picking up prestigious awards globally.
The bold endeavor continued with the expansion of wedding and event services to meet the rising demand for quality escapes in the Piedmont Region. One consistent request from guests has always been difficult to satisfy: the desire to explore the local vineyards, distilleries, and breweries, without hassle of driving or hiring a private chauffer.
Determined to maintain this holistic vision of southern hospitality, Virginia Sips provides an exciting, affordable, and safe way to take in the beautiful countryside of the Piedmont Region while enjoying its burgeoning tasting room offerings.
