Angie and Shep Nance, Innkeepers


Business has steadily been growing since Woodberry Inn, Restaurant and Bar reopened on May 1, 2010 under the ownership and management of Angie and Shep Nance. The Nances, both retired from telecommunications with no prior background or experience in hospitality, spent a couple of months prior to the opening making considerable improvements, hiring staff and getting to know the community.

The Woodberry Inn is situated in an ideal spot just 200 yards off the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 174.1 in Floyd County about a quarter mile from the Patrick County line.  Local and weekend residents from surrounding towns and counties as well as Parkway travelers continue to discover the friendly environment, comfortable lodging, delicious food and refreshing beverages to be found here. Guests and locals have been known to spend a leisure afternoon fishing in the pond and watching the antics of Woodberry’s 2 male mallard ducks, Andy and Barney.

The Inn has 16 rooms, 4 with 1 queen bed and 12 with 2 full beds, each equipped with private bath, color television with 50+ cable channels, free WIFI and new remote-controlled heating and air conditioning units.

The guest list includes motorcycling and bicycling groups, international visitors from 12 countries, wedding parties, Floyd Fest and Chateau Morrisette concert attendees, locals returning to the area for high school and family reunions, couples looking for a romantic retreat and Blue Ridge Parkway tourists.

Guests now have the convenience of online reservations at, in addition to photos for viewing, a list of upcoming area events and our weekly restaurant specials.

Since last year, the Woodberry Restaurant has steadily become a local and regional favorite due to a top-notch kitchen staff headed by chef Shaun Sager, quality ingredients, a friendly, efficient staff and a pleasant dining environment.  Some of the favorite menu items are crab cake sandwich, 8 oz. beef tenderloin, shrimp and grits, Shaun’s meatloaf and freshly made burgers. The chef also prepares a wide range of weekly specials that have included steak Oscar, low country boil and fresh fish. The homemade desserts include bread pudding, key lime pie and fruit cobblers and are not to be missed!

Our restaurant is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, to go out with family and friends or for a quiet dinner.  The patio, which seats 24, offers the perfect setting for a delicious meal. Reservations are recommended for parties who prefer to sit on the patio and parties of 5 or more.

The Bar at Woodberry Inn is an informal, impromptu meeting place for friends to meet or for making new friends.

The bar offers a wide selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. Locally produced wines from Foggy Ridge Cider, Villa Appalaccia and Chateau Morrisette are available by the bottle and glass. Several local musicians, including Bill and Maggie Anderson, Scott Perry and Marcie Horne have performed during the past year.  The fall and winter will bring more musical events and the addition of a dart board. The bar has also become the place to watch special sporting events such as major golf and tennis tournaments, NASCAR races, thoroughbred horse racing and soccer world cup.

Contact us if you are looking for an ongoing or one time meeting location for groups of 10 or more; book club, civic or social gathering, birthday party, rehearsal dinner, baby or bridal shower.
