The B&B was so cute and peaceful. A great value, and we were in town at the peak of fall foliage. Just gorgeous. Larry built the house by hand, and the two guest rooms are two years old, from what he told me. But they felt and smelled brand new.
My boyfriend and I got to enjoy downtown Charlottesville, Monticello & Shenandoah - they were all an easy drive from the B&B. I'd highly recommend bringing some food to eat if you want to spend the night in, and hang on the porch and enjoy the quiet.
Feeding the chickens was the highlight of my Saturday morning, of course, and everything was there that we needed for breakfast. We only had two small complaints: the first, we were only left 5 eggs for the weekend, and made the wrong assumption that we'd have some more for Sunday morning. Larry told me that the chickens hadn't been producing eggs like they used to, though, so I understood. The second was that the toilet ran a little incessantly, but again, not the end of the world.
We would ABSOLUTELY stay again (we're already talking about next year) and recommend to friends. As a side note, we had dinner on Saturday night at Fleurie in downtown Charlottesville. Incredible, fine French cuisine. Highly, highly recommend.
