The inn was a perfect place to unplug and get away from the city. Nestled amidst rolling hills, the B & B grounds were stunning. We spent hours walking the nature paths, admiring the stunning 360 views of the Shenandoah.
The breakfasts were delicious and wholesome and Chris and Linda were excellent hosts. They seemed to strike the perfect balance between being there to help us with any questions or requests we had while also giving us privacy.
We stayed in the Quilt room which was pretty spacious and cozy at the same time. We were there in the summer so we spent a good deal of time in the pool, if we were to stay there in the colder months we would definitely try to get one of the rooms with a hot tub.
We also went on their llama trek which we highly recommend. It definitely added that little something extra to a weekend getaway that made it that much more memorable.
