After hiking along skyline drive we decided not to make the long trip back to DC and used the IPhone "around me" application to find a place to stay. We took a chance on Killahevlin, and encountered wonderful hospitality in a beautiful and historic home. Thanks especially to Tom for making this a memorable stay. We will be back for... More

Innkeepers Tom and Kathy were more than accommodating, friendly and helpful. The Raspberry Room was beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. The entire property, especially pub, was just amazing. Breakfast was delicious as well. My fiancee and I are already looking forward to our next visit!

We went here for a weekend getaway with another couple. It was a beautiful place. The rooms were nice, temperature control was a bit of an issue and our fireplace did not work but we got by. We spent some time at the Pub they have and what a nice touch! The breakfasts... oh my the breakfasts. They were delicious... More

The fireplace didn't work?? I'd gladly have relit the pilot light if I'd known. I'm so very sorry. As for the heat, that was one of those weekends we get this time of year when it is warm (too warm) during the day and cold at night. Unfortunately, the cast iron radiators get hot at night and stay hot during... More

Not happy at all with the customer service. My husband and I had friends coming in from out of town and we called to reserve a room for a Saturday night, Feb 19th. I was told to call back in a week and if rooms were still available they would book us (we are all in the military and couldn't... More

We are truly sorry that we couldn't work with this potential guest. We have a two-night requirement on weekends and holidays that is clearly published on our web site. The weekend they wanted to stay was a holiday weekend. Giving them two rooms on a Saturday night would pretty much have assured that we would get only one night's revenue... More

For the second consecutive year, eight of us enjoyed a relaxing New Year's Eve at the Killahevlin B&B. We booked all of the rooms in the main house for easy access to the Pub and to enjoy the fantastic smells that emanated from the kitchen. Kathy and Tom are outstanding innkeepers and we are also pleased to count them as... More

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
