We were in the area for the Sweet Briar college graduation and I was so pleased with our decision to stay. The house and grounds are amazing, love the peacocks! We had eight family memebrs so we took up all but one room in the shouse. It was fun. There is a small guest house that would have been availible as well. The breakfast cooking was really special and staff very professional. No TV though so plan on relaxing on porch for your evening chat.
