My girlfriend, Jane, and I were here to visit my parents in New Market for Christmas and family recommended the Jacob Swartz House as the perfect B&B. Robin and David Gilbert, who took over the property a year ago, have thought of everything. You actually stay in the cobbler shop next to their house and they deliver breakfast to you... More

What an amazing property. You have an entire cottage to yourself as you are the only guests! Inside there are many rooms to hang out in. A full refrigerator and kitchen if you would like to cook, or bring food. You can even barbecue! Off the main bedroom is an incredible screened in porch that overlooks the Shenandoah River, it's...

Jacob Swartz House gives you an entire private cottage for the price of a hotel rom. The cottage itself is beautiful--2 bedrooms, 2 baths, LR, kitchen, screened in porch, sunroom and terrace. It is very private and in a lovely setting. It is rented as a B&B, so the owners (who live next door) bring you a wonderful breakfast (at... More

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend stay in the quaint, private guest cottage of the Jacob Swartz House Cottage B&B overlooking the beautiful North Fork of the Shenandoah River. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and the cottage is about as charming as one could ever imagine. Pictures can't do this gem justice, but know that you can watch... More

We had the best time staying in Jacob Swartz House. Robin and Dave were delightful hosts, and our breakfasts were so good, and very generous!! Two of our 3 mornings we had breakfast on the river bluff terrace overlooking the Shanandoah River, well how fabulous is that! The other morning we ate inside because it was raining a little, but...

We spent a delightful four nights at the Swartz house and enjoyed every minute. Having the entire cottage was unique and so comfortable. It is beautifully decorated with antiques and has amazing views of the River and grounds. Virginia had fresh flowers from the grounds around the house. The bed was soft and comfortable with skylights above the bed for... More

We rented the cottage for a reunion with old friends. The 2 bedrooms and 2 baths gave us our private space. The kitchen and dinette are the perfect size and the kitchen large enough for us to cook together. Virginia thinks of everything! When we arrived there was milk, ice cream and half and half in the refrigerator. She had... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in this very charming cottage! The proprietor, Virginia, only books one party at a time, so you aren't sharing the space with strangers. Everywhere you turn you will see how lovingly the cottage has been decorated: understated and tasteful. Did you forget something? No worries because Virginia has stocked the kitchen and... More
