We chose this B&B out of several others based on their amenities for an elopement, location, and most of all-- reader reviews. I could not be happier with our experience there and Sharon was nothing short of wonderful in helping me make our wedding just what we envisioned and more. The house was impeccable and beautifully decorated for the holidays.... More

My husband and I had our wedding here in December. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We couldn't have picked a better time. The flowers Sharon had for us were beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We had so much personal attention, and the gourmet breakfast she prepared was amazing.

My husband and I got married at the Holladay house and Sharon went above and beyond in all aspects! Sharon handled my many changes wonderfully! The officiant she works with was great and the flowers, cake and champagne she coordinated were great too. Last minute, she got the restaurant to hold our large dinner reservation when we were running behind.... More

After a year of planning, we altered our dates and celebrated our wedding at the B&B. Sharon was more than accommodating. She changed our arrangements and restaurant reservations several times. She recommended numerous restaurants that were vegetarian-friendly and even called the locations to check to be sure that they were open on Mondays. On our last day when we were... More

I'll start with "secondly": I'm so glad you made it to Elmwood at Sparks for that pumpkin ice cream - woah, that local stuff is NOT to be missed! And "firstly": it was an honor to help craft your special day. You both made for a beautiful bride and groom with a beautiful ceremony - congratulations! We look forward to... More

We stayed 4 nights at Holladay House in October and our family filled every room for 2 nights. The historic house is immaculate and cozy.Breakfasts are outrageously tasty!

We spent our honeymoon here and it was the most pleasant experience from the moment I made the reservation. The owner Sharon Elswick is pleasant, funny, hospitable, knowledgable and an awesome cook! The food is farm to table fresh. She is great at helping you plan your day. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast! The Urbina's

I'd never stayed at a B&B before, and was a little nervous about what to expect. We were attending a football game at JMU, and since it was family weekend, all of the hotels within an hour radius were booked months and months out! We happened upon this B&B and booked it, thrilled that there was a room available! The... More

What a treat to spend time with you and your daughter! And we love to host folks going to JMU - we're only 1.15 hours away which makes us a "best-kept secret" if the Harrisonburg area is full. And being JMU grads ourselves, Sam and I enjoy hosting a Duke every now and again ;D We're excited you enjoyed your... More

Having been unable to get away at all for a couple of years, we wanted a place where we could just relax and feel a little pampered while we celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. Holladay House totally filled the bill. It is a charming, well maintained property, a beautiful home dating back to the 1830's. The Garden Room was spacious... More

We stayed here for one night and wish it could have been longer. The home has loads of character, the rooms are comfortable and spotless. Sharon is the best amenity - her hospitality and cooking make this B&B a memorable experience.

We LOVE helping our guests squeeze the most out of their time with us - whether is absolutely nothing to a jam-packed weekend of activities based on their interests.
