We stayed for one night in September. The house has been beautifully restored and the welcome is very warm. The personal touches are great and breakfast was the best we had during our two week tour. The room and bed were very comfortable and were individual.

Pricey for what you get. The Inn is in an awkward location out of town and there is no way to walk into town without going through heavy traffic and construction. So so breakfast quality. Stained linens and bathrobe. It was a mediocre experience that I won't repeat.

charlesVirginia, Owner at Lackawanna B&B, responded to this review

This is a most unfortunate review as it certainly is not a truthful one. It is hard enough being an innkeeper and offering a pleasant experience to guests without the occasional unhappy customer writing a review that is not an honest evaluation of our b&b. I know for a fact that the sheets and robes are not stained as the... More

Our hosts were welcoming and informative without being intrusive. The location is pretty, in a lightly developed area with some historic structures, about 5 minutes north of the historic center of town. The home is large and impressive; the decor reflects the personal interests of the owners. I thought it was pretty and charming, and not frou frou. We appreciated... More

Lackawanna welcomed us on a hot fall day with the beauty of the Italianate mansion it is, but with full updates of central air, great water pressure, and wifi. Hosts Phil and Sandy thoughtfully provided an open refrig stocked with beverages and snacks on the second floor and on the first floor, wine. Breakfast was great but even better was... More

Phil and Sandy made us most welcome in this beautiful period home. The central air conditioning was most appreciated on a hot summer day. Phil is an excellent resource for local history and places of interest. The B&B is very tastefully restored and decorated to what it must have been originally like. I wouldn't have been surprised to see General... More

Phil and Sandy were gracious hosts who offered wonderful breakfasts and snacks and wine in the afternoon. They have a great knowledge of the area and gave helpful hints about what to see from historical sites to vineyards. The Rose Room was delightful. The historical building dates to 1869 and exhibits beautiful woodwork. We would stay here again.

This B&B has been restored by Phil & Sandra to be like it was when originally built. Fantastic location on the edge of Front Royal. Rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. Lovely front porch with rocking chairs. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

My partner and I stayed at this warmly welcoming inn for a full week. Sandy and Phillip felt like family and were so informally gracious. We really did not want to leave. The place is magically home-like, the breakfasts are delicious. We enjoyed conversing with the other guests who also seemed to be charmed by this solid and beautiful place... More

We came upon this sweet BnB last week while traveling through the area and were very happy that we did. The hosts were amazingly nice, the breakfast was delicious and the sounds of birdsong and distant train complemented it all!! Thank you for a great stay!! If we are ever in the area again, we will stop in for sure... More

We are a family of 4 from California who decided to visit Virginia over spring break to soak up some of its beauty and amazing history. After flying into Dulles, our first night was at the Lackawanna B&B. It was an easy drive from Dulles to Front Royal, and then the perfect launching point the next morning for our drive... More
