  • Coffee Connoisseur

    Price from: $49.00
      Like Thomas Jefferson, we believe coffee to be "the favorite drink of the civilised world." We take our coffee seriously. Thankfully, Orange County is the home of Orange County Coffee Roasters! Orange County Coffee Roasters imports the finest coffee beans from all over the planet and roasts them to perfection right here in Orange, only a few blocks from the Holladay House. 
      Orange County Coffee Roasters is the exclusive producer of our popular Holladay House Signature Morning Coffee, which we serve every morning for breakfast. 
      Our Coffee Connoisseur Package takes discerning coffee-lovers beyond the breakfast table. Embark on a VIP tour of the Orange County Roasters facility, where you will learn all about coffee production and how to perfectly roast coffee beans to produce the precise taste you love. After your tour, you will have an opportunity to taste several different types of coffee and you will plainly understand how regional differences affect the flavor and texture of a cup of coffee. In addition, you will have the opportunity to purchase freshly roasted beans (ground or whole) onsite.
      Depart the Holladay House with a freshly roasted bag of Holladay House's Signature Coffee and your own Holladay House coffee mug. (Please note, the VIP tour is based on the roaster's schedule.)
      24 hour advanced notice required.

  • Hot Air Balloon Ride Package

    Price from: $850.00
      In 1784, Thomas Jefferson was profoundly interested in the great new technological innovation of hot air balloons. He believed the balloon would have many uses, including transporting goods, gathering military intelligence, and discovering the North Pole. Experience the same fascination and amazement that our eminent founding father felt, while flying over the same landscape in which he felt it!
      A hot air balloon ride is an incredibly peaceful and gentle way to witness the beauty of Central Virginia. Trust us--we've flown a number of times ourselves and found the experience to be relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful. There is simply no better way to tour Virginia's gorgeous rolling hills and flowing rivers.
      The Holladay House Bed and Breakfast has partnered with Monticello Country Ballooning to provide this amazing experience to our guests.

      The Hot Air Balloon Package includes:

      • 2 nights at our historic bed and breakfast, including a delicious breakfast each morning (if you are taking a sunrise flight, we will provide a breakfast-to-go).
      • Hot Air Balloon Ride for two, either in the morning at sunrise or in the evening at sunset (flight time is about an hour, but the total event takes about 3 hours)
      • A champagne toast (a long-standing ballooning tradition)
      • Digital Photos taken by the ground crew (be sure to bring your own camera with extra batteries as well!)
      • Local pick-up and transportation to and from the launch site


      Naturally, hot air ballooning is subject to weather conditions. If your flight must be canceled due to weather, we'll do everything we can to reschedule your flight during your stay with us. However, if this is not possible, we will reduce your package cost accordingly. If you cancel your flight within 7 days of your hot air balloon flight reservation, the hot air balloon operator will charge you a cancelation fee of 50% of your total flight cost.
