This is a lovely small B&B with three rooms for rent. The house was built in 1869 and nicely restored, and has recently joined the register for National Historic buildings. The location is quiet and has beautiful gardens, in triangle of land between the north and south branches of the Shenandoah River. The town center is a five minute drive... More

We stayed only for one night but really enjoyed this B&B. The welcome was warm and friendly. The room and the house were very comfortable. Nice big garden. The pool wasn't open yet. Location on the edge of Front Royal was quiet but close to the highway and the village

We came in after 9:00pm, and were warmly treated by host and hostess, and were given a tour of the wonderfully restored mansion by Philip Charles, who has had several lifetimes of worldly experience. We retired to a fine room, and next morning took on a satisfyingly large breakfast at a common table (with fellow guests) in elegant surroundings, and... More

Enjoyed it so much we're already booked in on our return through the area next week! Wonderful house with lots of charm and thoughtful extras like a free wine bar and puzzles in the living room. Great breakfast.

An amazing house - it's actually on the historic register. Be sure to ask Phil about the house's history. The house is very cozy, charming, and oozes character. And it's very comfortable. As for the location, very close to Skyline drive and other great mountain attractions.

We stayed here several years ago but the hosts were just wonderful and so were the accommodations. We enjoyed the pool and the close drive to the Inn at Little Washington for dinner. We were greeted at the door with a glass of sherry and had great wifi the entire time. I highly recommend. Small details really make the difference... More

I've taken my wife to stay with Sandy and Phil at the Lackawanna B&B 3 times over the years and we consistently have a great time there. If you have the opportunity, I would highly recommend staying with them.

The hosts were friendly and inviting. The house itself was a lovingly restored period building. The room we stayed in was lovely and every effort had been made to make our stay comfortable. However breakfast was a disappointment. For the price we paid to stay here, we were expecting a more gourmet breakfast. It was a buffet breakfast of scrambled... More

The house is a labour of love and Phil and Sandy make you feel totally at home with great hospitality and a delicious breakfast. The fact that the other guests were returnees says it all. Skyline Drive had been our target but any disappointment was more than made up by staying in such a wonderfully restored and evocative B&B
