Last autumn while in Lexington, Virginia for Washington and Lee's Parents Weekend, we stopped by to tour Enfield House and meet her hostess, Becky Clarke as we had booked there for a visit in late spring. This B&B is warm and inviting, and Becky even makes her own bread, after first grinding the flour! I eagerly anticipate her hospitality, her famous breakfast made with the local harvest and the unbelievable valley view from her serene backyard! I know my shutterbug husband will snap away as I sip freshly ground local roasted coffee from my perch on a comfy Adirondack chair! I will tell you more after our visit.
