From the moment we arrived Ann made us feel at home, she was the perfect helpful host , helpful to the point of offering to pick us up if we drank too many tequilas at the local Mexican , but not intrusive . I would have liked to have a good chat with Ann over a glass of wine and...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It was the perfect place after spending a day in hectic DC. Ann is a lovely innkeeper. She contacted us before to ask about any dietary restrictions we might have. This told me that they are very tuned to guest needs. Breakfast was delicious. The most airy waffles you can imagine...

No beautiful quilt the antique night stands were replaced with old painted yard sale tables. The bedside lamps were different too.The nice upholstered chair in the pic was also missing.IT WAS NOT THE ROOM...

Innkeeper Ann and her staff were very friendly and outgoing. Ann had called earlier in the week to make sure we did not have any dietary restrictions for breakfast. We are early risers, so on Saturday morning we had to wait a little but the coffee was ready, and we lounged in the parlor and were not disappointed! (We had...

We stayed for a night in the garden cottage. It was very clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious! We didn't know that wifi wasn't available in the cottage but it wasn't an issue. We were also given a complementary bottle of wine which was nice.

What a find on Tripadvisor we stayed here two nights in the Willow Suite and could have stayed a week. The Inn is furnished in traditional style and the staff are friendly and attentive. We were offered a choice of complimentary wine to enjoy on our own balcony and in the shade in the garden. The bedroom was spacious with...

I just got back from a wonderful 2 night stay here while visiting the Shenandoah Valley for the first time. I am so glad I found the Inn - it is truly a gem! Everything about my stay - from the room, to the food, and especially the people - were perfect. I was visiting the area to see the...

Found this bed and breakfast just a couple of days before. They let us check in early as the room(s) were not used the previous night. We had a 3-room suite, but it only slept 2. The breakfast is amazing; the chef is top notch. Highly recommend this place.

I hesitated to write this review because Ann, the innkeeper, is a lovely person who gave us a very good breakfast. However, there are serious issues with the Inn. The exterior looks fine, but the interior needs to be refreshed, especially the Willow Suite. We were frankly surprised to find it equipped with furniture that looked like 1970's thrift shop...

Wow! What a beautiful place and perfect stay. We stayed for a night at the French Cottage and it was just perfect. The staff was so kind and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the front porch, talking with the Innkeeper. We loved that we got a complimentary bottle of wine perfect for enjoying on our private porch while...
