We stayed here on 8/4 & 8/5/14. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Tom. We had chosen the Blue Room again for our stay, and it was very comfortable, with a roomy Jacuzzi tub and a relaxing front porch. Another feature of Killahevlin is their Irish pub, with complimentary beer, wine and snacks. Once again Tom prepared delicious hot... More

Breakfast was a disappointment compared to what was pictured on their website. Noise in bedroom from the hot tub in the adjacent room was bothersome. No television in the room. Room was extremely cold, even though the window A/C wasn't on; had to turn on electric heater to get warm House had too much furniture; felt cramped. Free drinks in... More

We always try to use negative reviews as a learning experience and try to make changes to improve things so that future guests don't have the same issues. In this case, the only thing we can say is that Killahevlin, like so many B&Bs, is an historic old house. As such, the structure has certain limitations and certainly many benefits.... More

Killahevlin was a joy! The house if beautifully appointed, the grounds gorgeous and Tom and Kathy were lovely. The food is outstanding. As we are "cat people" and missed our kittens, we really enjoyed Bits and Gracie. This was our honeymoon and our stay made it a memorable and romantic one! FYI, Front Royal "rolls up the streets" on Mondays... More

Just came back from Killahevlin on our first B&B trip and boy did it ever live up to our expectations. When you go to a hotel you are customer but at Killahevlin we felt like special guests. We stayed in the Blue Room. It had the biggest jetted tub we had ever seen and we totally enjoyed it. Right off... More

We loved this place. We have written over 200 reviews and a lot of them are B&Bs and we have tried to be more discriminating but we had to give this B&B a 5! First, our hosts were wonderful. Tom made sure we were familiar with the area and things to do and Kathy made some lovely items for our... More

My wife and I celebrated our 44th anniversary with two nights at Killahevlin. The beautiful setting of this historic B&B is surpassed only by the warmth of the hospitality and the comfort of the lodgings. There is an open pub to the left of the spacious entry way with a selection and wine and beer. Each room also has a... More

We had a most enjoyable time at Killahevlin! The breakfasts were fabulous. Tom and Kathy are creative chefs and wonderful hosts. They were both a tremendous help in providing suggestions and directions. The pub was a really nice touch. The Inn was lovely as well. We would stay there again!

Well maintained, clean, comfortable. Warm hospitable host and hostess. Very knowledgeable of area. we could not have asked for a better experience or place to spend time. We could easily have stayed several more days and had plenty to do... or not do anything at all.

We had such a wonderful time at Killahevlin. The owners are such nice people and great cooks. Really enjoyed each day's breakfasts. Having a pub in the B&B with a "help yourself" style of serving was great. We loved sitting in there with other guests and just talking. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
