“The Perfect Week-end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This, past week-end, October 18 thru 20, 2013, we spent another wonderful three days at the Inn at Narrow Passage. Such a wonderful place to relax, meet new friends, have a GREAT breakfast and most of all, have delightful conversation with the Innkeepers, Ed and Ellen.. They are the best. We look forward to our next visit as soon as possible. YOU NEED TO GO AND ENJOY

On our first stay at the Inn we found a delightful location, rich with history, and innkeepers who made you wish you could stay longer. Our room was very comfy, breakfast was very special, and the overall experience one of the best B & B experiences we've ever had. I'm already thinking of what adventures we can fit in on our next stay---canoeing? Luray Caverns? definitely Joe's Steak House again, fishing? unwinding.....

My wife and I introduced two of our closest friends to Ed and Ellen this weekend past, as we spent a beautiful Fall weekend at the Inn. When you have read a great book, seen a wonderful movie, eaten a superb meal at a new restaurant, or viewed a breathtaking view for the very first time, you want to share that experience with those you care for and admire...at least I do. The thrill of watching their reaction makes your original experience deeper and richer. And that is what it was like this visit to Narrow Passage as our friends spent two days with our hosts, and saw, heard, smelled and breathed in the mountain air suffused with smoke in the early mornings at this most tranquil of getaways. The quiet moments on the veranda with a fresh cup of coffee...the laughter and conversation in front of the stone hearth and the warming fire...the breakfast of just the right combination of light and hearty fare...all reflected the same wonder and satisfaction that I had felt on our first visit. Ed and Ellen, thank you for such kindness and consideration extended to our friends, who have now become members of the family of the Innkeepers at Narrow Passage. It is a wonderful comfort to know such a place, and be able to pass it on to your friends and family. Steve Roberts

There are not words in the English language to adequately describe the absolutely wonderful time my wife and I spent at The Inn at Narrow Passage. We stayed three nights at the Inn while taking in the sights of Shenandoah National Park and the Shenandoah River valley. You are literally a stone's throw away from the north fork of the Shenandoah River. History and Civil War buffs will certainly enjoy the Inn, as the original structure was built in 1740 and, during the Civil War, served as "Stonewall" Jackson's headquarters for a time during his "Valley Campaign". Our room was clean, cozy, and comfortable, perfectly furnished with a queen size, 4-post bed with canopy, a couple of wing-back chairs, a refrigerator, and a fireplace (used October through March). We slept well each night. The best part of the stay for us, had to be Ed Markel, the Owner and Innkeeper. He was a delight and gave us his personal attention throughout our stay. He gave great suggestions as to where to eat and places to visit. He told us to "make yourselves at home" and it felt like he had had invited us into his own home. Ed and the staff did all the "little" things (such as a bedtime snack of brownies and strawberries) that made staying at the Inn a vacation unto itself. Breakfast was always very good and filling each morning. We especially enjoyed the "French bread" French toast and the wonderful bowl of mixed fruits and berries. The Inn is near Woodstock, Virginia, and we enjoyed our forays into town for dinner. I highly recommend traveling US Hwy 11 to visit many of the towns and sights along this very historic route. We are already planning our next visit to The Inn at Narrow Passage.

Room Tip: Rooms that were part of a later addition to the Inn have a covered porch that overlooks the grounds...

This isn't your typical bed and breakfast. More like a bed and breakfast - "cabin style". Loved the historical building and the history - Ed is full of great facts. The grounds are beautiful and were great for visiting with our friends that came with us. My husband loved that the Shenandoah was within walking distance so he could fish. And there is a great 2 mile road that you can take a lovely stroll to the base of Massanutten mountain. The location is right off of Route 11. It is very loud with traffic during the day - but was very quiet in the evening. (I admit I was concerned at first about that.) Breakfast was delicious and everyone we met there were very nice people. We spent the weekend visiting vineyards in the area and this was a great spot to stay. We hired a driver which worked out great as he took the back road so we could enjoy the scenery while staying safe too. Would definitely stay here again if back in the area...

My husband and I have just spent two truly lovely nights at the Inn. Ed is a fountain of knowledge and nothing is too much trouble. The weather was superb so we really enjoyed sitting on our porch overlooking the beautiful gardens savouring the peace and quiet. On Ed 's recommendation we tried several vineyards and drove a chunk of the skyline drive which was an unforgettable experience. Woodstock cafe is great for lunch and the margaritas at las trancas are incredible but the restaurant itself lacks atmosphere. An amazing end to our holiday.

My husband and I surprised my sister and her husband with an overnight at this B&B and a hot air balloon ride. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed this Inn and especially the proprietor ED! I had read the online reviews; but then the balloon company sent us a list of accommodations and this one was mentioned first. I took that as an omen and booked it. We were NOT disappointed. On a Sunday night, we practically had the place to ourselves. We took Ed's suggestions: Joe's Steakhouse -- an amazing meal I will remember the rest of my days; and the hike on the suspension bridge over the Susquehanna's North Fork river. Since the balloon ride was at dawn, we returned to the B&B around 9:30 in time to enjoy Ed's delicious breakfast -- sitting in the same dining room as Stonewall Jackson. AWESOME!!!
My only recommendation would be different pillows -- felt like I had a rock under my head! LOL
