I lived in the cottage for 4 months during an internship in Bedford and I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay. Ellen and John's hospitality were second to none and they were always available to lend a hand with anything I needed. As an elite cyclist I especially loved it here for the cycling terrain; the proximity to the mountains is unbeatable! Speaking of the mountains, the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the Vanquility Inn is absolutely breathtaking - especially in October when the leaves are changing. Bedford itself is a charming small town with a nice downtown with shops and great food. I will miss living here, and I hope to stay here again sometime down the road!
In short: wonderful people, unrivaled cycling, and spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. What's not to love?
