We enjoyed our stay in the green room with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Breakfasts were delicious, the bar with complimentary beer and wine was a plus, and the owners were very helpful. It is a great location near the Skyline Drive, New Market Battlefield, Luray Caverns and other sites in the Shenandoah Valley.The only drawback was noise at... More

My husband and I had a great time at Killahevlin. The minuses would be that the huge tub in the blue room needs some no-slip treads on the bottom. It was very slippery in there. Plus the absolutely beautiful porch was shared with the room next door and made for little privacy. Other than that it was really good. The... More

Safety and comfort of our guests are, of course, prime concerns for us. The Blue bathroom has a rubber bath mat that can be used to ensure that slips and falls don't occur. We hang it next to the tub so that it dries and doesn't mildew, but it may not have been obvious to this guest. For that we... More

My wife and I loved every minute of our stay. Tom & Kathy took great care of us. The breakfast each morning was amazing. We loved the house and everything about it. The town of Front Royal, and surrounding area was also great. It offered more things to do and places to eat than we had time for. We cannot... More

Tom and Kathy were wonderful hosts, as they go out of their way to accommodate guests questions and special needs. The breakfasts are splendid, with the complimentary bar in the lounge a huge amenity. Really enjoyed the whirlpool tub in the blue room! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this place for everyone!

Outstanding experience. Tom and Kathy treated us to First Class hospitality, wonderful food, and grand accommodations. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We stayed in the Tower which included a porch for enjoying morning coffee or an evening glass of complimentary sherry. Kathy's breakfasts always started with an eye-popping dessert followed by a hearty entree. The small pub was... More

The house is lovely, and Tom and Kathy are wonderful, gracious hosts! We stayed in the Plum Cottage Suite, and the accommodations were splendid. Plenty of space, and an excellent soaking tub. The breakfasts were delicious and the in-house pub is a great place to sit and relax. We will definitely be back!

Bought a Groupon for this B&B and discovered we were so very lucky to have happened upon this place! From reservation to final breakfast, Tom and Cathy were exceptional. Tom was quick to reply to an email I sent regarding a little fan in the room (there is one if you need white noise). Once we arrived we were shown... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend to get away from the hectic day-to-day. It is a wonderful B&B. Tom and his wife, Kathy, are super friendly and recommended so many fabulous places to eat. The location has beautiful scenery and is warm and welcoming (the chairs in the living room are SO comfortable). I loved the tub in... More

My husband and I stayed at Kilahevlin in the Jade suite and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The main house is unique and beautifully decorated. Tom was a wonderful host and very kind to us. I cant say enough about the food expect I usually dont eat like that but couldn't help myself to all of it. Our room... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tom who showed us around this GORGEOUS B&B and gave us recommendations for places to eat in town (all of which were amazing!). Our room, complete with jacuzzi tub and private porch, couldn't have been more perfect. Between the room, the charm of the whole B&B, the delicious meals - homemade apple crisp, biscuits... More
