My husband and I enjoyed a weekend stay in the quaint, private guest cottage of the Jacob Swartz House Cottage B&B overlooking the beautiful North Fork of the Shenandoah River. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and the cottage is about as charming as one could ever imagine. Pictures can't do this gem justice, but know that you can watch... More

We had the best time staying in Jacob Swartz House. Robin and Dave were delightful hosts, and our breakfasts were so good, and very generous!! Two of our 3 mornings we had breakfast on the river bluff terrace overlooking the Shanandoah River, well how fabulous is that! The other morning we ate inside because it was raining a little, but...

We spent a delightful four nights at the Swartz house and enjoyed every minute. Having the entire cottage was unique and so comfortable. It is beautifully decorated with antiques and has amazing views of the River and grounds. Virginia had fresh flowers from the grounds around the house. The bed was soft and comfortable with skylights above the bed for... More

We rented the cottage for a reunion with old friends. The 2 bedrooms and 2 baths gave us our private space. The kitchen and dinette are the perfect size and the kitchen large enough for us to cook together. Virginia thinks of everything! When we arrived there was milk, ice cream and half and half in the refrigerator. She had... More

What a well appointed cottage!!!! It was such a pleasant surprise to find such a gem! We travel a lot and have stayed in many places across our great nation as well as abroad...but we have yet to find a home away from home such as this! Virginia was the perfect hostess. A Virginia native familiar with the area. Her... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in this very charming cottage! The proprietor, Virginia, only books one party at a time, so you aren't sharing the space with strangers. Everywhere you turn you will see how lovingly the cottage has been decorated: understated and tasteful. Did you forget something? No worries because Virginia has stocked the kitchen and... More

My husband found this place on Trip Advisor. We loved everything about it. So quiet, so cozy, so private, comfortable, clean and so much more. The very best part of the Jacob Swartz House is the tiny screened in deck off of the bedroom - with a view of the river. The kitchen has everything. We were there for two... More

We stayed at the Jacob Swartz House in October 2012 and were delighted with the setting and the service we received from Virginia. The cottage is like a home from home and everything you could possibly need is provided. The terrace is home to many birds, including humming birds and cardinales, not to mention the squirrels who were stealing acorns... More

We spent two nights and needed another full day just to explore this historic building and the property it sits on. Virginia has made sure that anything you could possibly want is there, anticipating every need (beer mugs in the freezer for the beer she put in the fridge, CDs and DVDs, drinks, books and magazines, brochures, and everything you...
