We booked a last minute weekend at Settlers Crossing B&B, (not your traditional B&B though) & were not disappointed. When we saw our cabin, the Kusenberger (built 1850) all I could say was "wow". It is a teeny tiny cabin (so if you want space & ultra modern amenities this is not for you) but has everything you need...including the most important, peace & tranquility.
The weekend turned out to be cold & rainy but when we got the fire burning it was bliss & we enjoyed every minute of it & only a short drive to Frederickburg for all the amenities. I originally wanted to stay in F'burg but I am so glad that we didn't.
Perhaps a couple of things could be improved on. It is advertised with 'continental breakfast delivered to your door". In fact 3 muffins were already in the cabin when we arrived...in a zip-lock bag..I didn't find this very appealing & not the best breakfast for such a highly rated b&b. I know that privacy to guests is one of the attractions but surely there are better ways to provide breakfast. This cabin is also advertised as having a jacuzzi tub with hand held shower. This was not the case, it is a fixed shower over a bathtub. Perhaps the info needs to be updated. We also found the bed to be a little small (more a double than a queen) & quite soft. However these things didn't distract too much from our stay as we still had a great time.
My advice is to sit back with a glass of wine, soak up the history & enjoy the setting. We wanted to stay longer. Oh & say 'hello' to Bob the dog.....& the donkey & the pony & the sheep & the deer...
