This 100+ year old home was perfect for our girls' getaway. We stayed in a room with 2 beds, but had to use the communal, top floor, bathroom. Normally, that would make me feel uncomfortable, but this bathroom was very clean and the whole stay felt like being at Grandma's house! Miss Ginny cooked a delicious breakfast and even commented...

This really is a taste of the South. Miss Ginny is a gracious and lovely host. Her house is wonderful inside and out- there are hammocks and swing chairs by the river. The rooms are chintzy and comfortable. But the best thing is you get to have her breakfast. Miss Ginny gets up at 5am to start preparing the feast... More

There is no better place to stay to rest up and fuel up for the Virginia Creeper bike trail. We found the Lazy Fox Inn to be inviting, cozy and very homey. Miss Ginny has stories to share and is the epitome of southern hospitality. We stayed in the downstairs room where we had a private bath with a claw... More

This is an amazing property. They are very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. The location was just perfect. We are going to go kayaking the next time we stay. We will definitely be staying at this location. Just perfect.

The rooms were attractive and there was a big claw foot tub, plus a shower in the shared bathroom. Some rooms have their own bath, but I stayed in off season, so I only had to share with the friends who came with me. The inn is right on the river, so bring your kayak or tubes. It is a... More

My wife and I were running an ultramarathon in the Blue Ridge Mountains and stayed in Damascus the night before the run began. The house was very quaint and cozy. Its location along a gentle creek/river was beautiful. The owners were kind and cooked a wonderful breakfast for us. Although most of us didn't touch the meats, there was plenty... More

We stayed in the lower level bedroom (with the private bathroom). Really nice appointments, well kept . . . it was apparent they had tried to think of everything to make a guest comfortable (even bathrobes in the bedroom for guest use). We did have difficulty finding the B&B (don't use a GPS or ask the local bike shop--neither were... More

Ms. Ginny has created a warm cradle of hospitality in the heart of the small town of Damascus that will make you feel like you've arrived at grandma's house. Her historical Victorian home, built in 1904, is large, spacious, and authentic as she has been in this house for many years and the rooms are perfectly appointed for a weekend... More

I can't say enough good about this place. Just like Grandma's house of yesteryear with Grandma there to take care of you. I will start with the best first: the breakfast, it was like the Thanksgiving feast of breakfasts. We had rode the VA Creeper that morning and told the shuttle driver where we were staying and he told us... More
