Killahevlin, an Irish-themed B&B, is where my husband and I went for our first anniversary. It's in Front Royal and is amazing on all accounts. We stayed in the cottage suite off of the beautiful main house. They served a gourmet-level breakfast each morning that was DELICIOUS, and the porch off of our cottage had a great view of deer...

The room was so cozy I didn't even get a chance to tap my own own pint in the pub. Oh well next time, There will definitely be a next time. It was recommended to us by friend.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending a couple nights at Killahevlin. It's a lovely B&B. Our room was very clean, quiet and charmingly decorated, as was the rest of the house. Breakfasts were very good and the owners were very nice and helpful. Beautiful views of the Virginia mountains and countryside from almost every window -... More

I've been here on two occasions, and have been impressed both times. You can reserve the room you want online. Many rooms have large hottubs, which are great after Blue Ridge Mountain hiking all day. Breakfast was great. The whole place is like a comfy mountain getaway. There's a small pub on the ground floor, with complementary beer and wine... More

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Killahevlin Inn on 3 occasions. 1st time I found the place trying to locate a bed & breakfast just outside of DC. We were living in the city at the time and needed a very brief but relaxing break from our stressful jobs. This place in about 1... More

Innkeepers Tom and Cathy are very accommodating and caring. They provide a comfortable and relaxing experience while respecting your privacy. We and our friends have enjoyed staying here twice yearly and have been doing this for many years.

Killahevlin is in a good location for visiting the Skyline drive, and Tom was a gracious host.The public rooms were cluttered and tired, the porch needed sweeping, and the cat litter tray certainly needed cleaning. The food was good and plentiful and the help yourself wine and beer was a nice touch. However overall it was overpriced.

It's said that the person who is good at making excuses is rately good at anything else. October is our very busiest month and sometimes the fine points get away from us. The rooms are ALWAYS clean, but sometimes the menues in the pub don't get put away as soon as we would like. The porch gets swept at least... More

My wife and i were accompanied by our daughter and her husband. Killahevlin far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are spacious and furnished in a very comfortable and attractive manner. Tom, the "inn keeper" was always available for conversation, advice on what to do and see, where to eat/shop etc. An elegant breakfast was served in a lovely dining room.... More

Killahelvin went way beyond my expectations and the website photos don't do the place justice. Pulling up the windy driveway and seeing the magnificent green landscaping immediately makes one spellbound and buy into the whole experience. It seems like a place where a writer would complete some great masterpiece or something like that. The room was very comfy (the green... More
