On our road trip around the East Coast we had chosen to stay in hotels but had wanted at least a couple of days in a more home from home and chose this B&B for its lovely looking house and grounds and from the indivdual rooms which you could select. We were not disappointed the house is beautiful and the grounds just off the main road give it alot of privacy. We were greeted warmly and offered a cool glass of wine to sit on the veranda and recover from the journey. The Blue Room was just as was pictured on their site a big comfortable bed soft furnishing and indivdual antique furniture with a very personal touch. There was no TV not that we missed it but there was a Radio/CD player. Our private bathroom just along the hall (we were given robes to wear) was lovely.
The reception room downstairs was very inviting with lots of information about places to visit and we were given lots of advice about restaurants in the area.
All the guests met together in the morning after coffee on the veranda for breakfast. It was great to meet together with everyone to discuss the days plans over the delicious and homemade breakfast.
Our bedroom upstairs was very quiet but i can imagine having a room downstairs near the reception room might be a little noisy if guests met there in the evening.
I would recommend this B&B and if in Virginia would definately stay there again.
