We chose Killahevlin for a quick anniversary get away and we really enjoyed our stay. Tom was very welcoming and helpful in guiding us around the area. He suggested a very nice restaurant, hikes, wineries and many other activities. We stayed in the Raspberry room and really loved it. It's very large and comfortable with a big bathroom. The bed...

Tom and Kathy were wonderful. Tom was there to welcome us. He gave us a map and suggested places to eat and things to see. We stayed in the guest house and it was beautiful. The antiques in the room really gave it a charming feeling. Everything gave a an old world feel.

My husband actually found this wonderful B&B and made all the arrangements! Tom greeted us and gave us the 411 on all the amenities including the quaint bar, tasty Harp's Lager on tap! He also gave us recommendations on what to do and where to go in the area. Great choices, thanks Tom! We absolutely loved the breakfasts! A word... More

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
