My husband is a train buff and chose The Hummingbird Inn for a weekend away from our busy, chaotic, demanding schedules. The Inn is situated in a very small town across the street from an active railroad. It is located within 30 minutes of Staunton, Lexington and Hot Springs, VA. This location lends itself to peaceful driving through farmland and mountains. The gorgeous Goshen pass is 5 minutes away from the Inn. We stayed in the Allegany room. This is one of the largest rooms that includes an antique canopy queen sized bed, sitting area, electric fireplace, and writing desk. The room has an en-suite. The large 3 piece bathroom has a jacuzzi for two as well. I was pleased to find luxury toiletries, makeup cloth, soft robes and big thick bath linens. The rooms here do not have TV's! This was the best part. I enjoyed walking into our room and hearing the internet radio playing soothing music. We were also supplied with wine glasses, corkscrew, matches, a picnic bag full of snacks and little scrubs and lotions. The room was immaculate and all in working order. I have stayed in several B&B's and found our hosts, Patty and Dan friendly and unassuming. They were there to greet us upon arrival, give us information and actual maps for our day trips. One night we were sitting quietly on the veranda and out of nowhere comes Dan with a plate of chocolates, strawberries and wine. There we enjoyed our treats while listening to the frogs and stream. I love that they have thought of everything. There is a private deck next to the stream and barn where you can build a fire and sit for a spell. All the supplies needed to build the little fire were there should one be inclined. Coffee, tea, snacks and drinks are provided. They have negotiated substantial discounts at area businesses and give you a card to use during your stay to receive the discounts. Breakfast was good each day. A word about the train- I was aware prior to our stay of the active trains close to the inn. I admit I was a bit uneasy about the train roaring through the first night. By the way, earplugs are provided in each room. By the second night, I was excited to see and hear the train come by and dare I say disappointed that I wouldn't hear the trains anymore when we left. I am happy to say this Inn is pet friendly. A welcome surprise and good option for some folks with well behaved small dogs. We wished we had booked at least 3 nights at this inn. We didn't have time to enjoy reading a book in the solarium. Thank you to Patty and Dan for a lovely weekend.
