Got away for the first night without kids and this was a great retreat. Hornsby House was comfortable and relaxing from the moment we walked in. The house has an old charm but the rooms and bathrooms are perfectly updated with amenities (in room air conditioner that we controlled in July was wonderful! iPOD docking station / alarm clock). I loved the views of the Yorktown Monument from our room. Wine and Cheese happy hour was great, and David also was willing to accommodate if we preferred beer or something else. I needed to use the fridge to store somethings and that was no problem.
I wasn't sure if I would want to wake up for breakfast (like I said - first night away from 2 kids - sleeping in is a luxury!) but breakfast is a must! The egg and sausage casserole was fantastic, my husband is still talking about the blueberry and raspberry muffins, and the grits were so good.
We left feeling relaxed and refreshed!
