One of the strangest but most welcoming and truly lovely bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed in! amazing food, free beer and a stepladder to get up to bed! It was beautiful and bob and Joan are the best hosts. Book it, you won't be disappointed!

This was absolutely delightful! Spend a coulee of days here, and enjoyed it mightily. From the cheerful greeting of the innkeeper through the goodbye breakfast, it was an experience to remember. Joan and Bob are both pleasant , helpful, interesting folks, and they really strive to make their large house a home to all. We had ( and i can't... More

My fiance and I stayed here two nights on a trip to Shenandoah National Park. The town of Front Royal is a great base for exploring the entire Shenandoah Valley area, including wineries, the park, and other small towns. We had planned on a full day of hiking and sightseeing... but ended up snowbound for half the day during that... More

We LOVED Woodward House. My husband and I have stayed in many Hotels and B+B's all over the world, we are now sailing around the world and wanted a very homely place to stay for a few days after a hectic UK visit before returning to our boat. We got homely in spades. The website that Bob has put together... More

I cannot say enough about how wonderful my stay(s) have been at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast. When I first arrived last year, I had been on the Appalachina Trail coming from Harper's Ferry. I never expected to be treated with such warmth and hospitality. Bob and Joan are two excellent inn keepers and their accomations were far superior to... More

My wife and I spent our first ever night at a B&B and absolutely loved it! After a full day of visiting wineries, sightseeing, and scenic drives in the Shenendoah Valley, we checked into the Woodward House around 4PM. Our welcome by Joan was so warm and inviting, and we immediately felt right at home. We were upgraded to the... More

We stayed here two years ago, so when we returned to VA, we wanted to revisit the Woodward. Joan remembered us and gave us the warmest welcome, making us feel like we were visiting a long lost friend. From the nice snack basket in the room to the free guest bar and fantastic breakfast, there's nowhere that makes me feel... More

Innkeepers Bob and Joan Kaye are the most welcoming and gracious folks imaginable. The rooms at the Woodward House are charming, cozy, and clean. Attention to your comfort is number one --from the comfy bed to the extraordinary breakfast. Speak of breakfast, if you like breakfast- thick and yummy french toast, country fresh omelettes, blueberry pancakes, you will be more... More

For our one-year anniversary we took a getaway from D.C. and traveled to The Woodward House in Front Royal. Our hopes were high, due in part to positive word-of-mouth read at sites like Trip Advisor. The Woodward House lived up to, and exceeded, our greatest of expectations. We were greeted by Bob immediately upon our arrival and told we had... More

It's been a few months and we've travelled to many places around the world since our stay at the Woodward, but I still remember it as one of the best places we've stayed in the US - and definitely the most memorable. Joan and Bob really make this place a very special B&B. I'll never forget the chats by the... More
