If you are looking for an enjoyable escape from the DC area, this B&B is perfect if you are looking for something a little more secluded yet with all the charm. Krista is a great host and the conversation over breakfast was engaging and delightful. We stayed in the Princess on a Pea suite and loved it. The hottub outside... More

Loved everything about this B&B. Our room was large and so very comfortable, AWESOME view! Christa is an amazing woman and terrific hostess - so warm and friendly, with lots of suggestions and ideas for activities. Great breakfasts! And, we loved the other guests - two young newly wed couples - a great counterpoint to our celebration of my husband's... More

Christa is a gracious and hospitable host at a lovely, secluded bed and breakfast with a gorgeous view of the mountains around the Shenandoah Valley. My wife and I stayed in the Queen’s Suite for our honeymoon recently and could not have been more pleased with our stay. Well-decorated, clean and spacious, with a comfortable common area. The outdoor hot... More

Neither my husband nor I had ever been to a Bed & Breakfast before staying at Once Upon a Mountain. What a wonderful experience! From the beautiful view, coffee in the morning, sitting on the deck right outside of our room, to the fascinating conversations with Christa and the other guests, cleanliness of the entire home, delicious food, and comfortable...

We really enjoyed being outdoors, despite the cold weather- the hottub waswell maintained and always kept at 104 :) The sleeping beauty room was beautiful and spacious- perfect for... More

A last minute invitiation from a friend landed me at Once Upon a Mountain last weekend. Barring a late arrival that had us attempting to navigate the mountains in the dark (save yourself from this and arrive in the daylight), we were overly pleased to find a gorgeous lodge-style facility with 3 suites for guests. We stayed in the Princess... More

It was such a nice place to stay for a weekend away. The Inn keeper was so sweet and very helpful with suggestions for what to do around the town. The room and amenities were very nice and made for a great overall experience. Best of all was the mountain view.

Once Upon a Mountain was the perfect weekend getaway from start to finish. The House is gorgeous, and our room, the Princess on a Pea suite, was cozy and comfortable. We stepped out onto the patio to a stunning view of the moon over the mountains. It was great to sit in the hot tub with a chill in the... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in the Queen's Suite and had a fabulous time from start to finish. The view from the inn was absolutely incredible. The suite was spacious and clean.
