We were travelling to Raleigh,N.C. from Ct. and had planned to stay at a Hampton Inn in Winchester,Va,but having arrived at 2P.M. on Feb.20 we decided it was too early to stop.for the night. We picked up some literature in the Va. Welcome Center to check out BandBs.(On our trip South last year,the description of theFrederick House piqued our interest,but the timing didn't fit our travel schedule.) We called from our car to make inqueries for that nite and Karen was most helpful in helping us to make our decision on a room selection. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Denny ,who obviously takes great pride in this charming,historical little city.He pointed out areas of interest,recommended several restaurants,explained the breakfast detail and took us to the room Karen had recommended----she was right on target--a lovely room with king bed and sitting area. The decor was a perfect blend of antiques with .modern amenities.We never had to get in our car again until we left the next day as everything is within walking distance. We had a fabulous dinner that nite at The Dining Room. Have you ever heard of Sea Scallops dusted with cocoa sitting on a bed of white chocolate risotto?It was absolutely delicious!!! Breakfast is not the typical 1 option menu,but rather offers quite a nice variety. Again,have you ever heard of Apple Raisin Quiche? Try it--you'll like it!! Check-out is a leisurely 12 noon at which time we departed, promising to stop on our way North from Myrtle Beach at the end of March.If we continue to come South in ensuing years,you can be sure this will be a stop for us.
