“Simply great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We are a family of 4 and were looking for somewhere to stay near The Shenandoah National Park and Woodward House was recommended in a Lonely Planet Guide. After seeing the rave reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to book - and I'm so pleased that we did! Everything said in the reviews here is true - Bob and Joan really are the most generous hosts. The breakfasts are amazing, the rooms are charming. Just by way of saying something different - the location is great too!

Joan and her husband made us feel at home from the moment we stepped in the door to the moment we left. The atmosphere was perfect as we looked out over the Blue Ridge. The breakfast was excellent. Thanks for the wonderful time.

Joan and Bob are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is freshly baked, even the butter was homemade. It was the best breakfast we have had since arriving in the US a week ago. Woodward house is family orientated and warm and welcoming. They offered complimentary good quality wine and beer and were very friendly, warm and generous hosts.
The location was perfect for our trip along Skyline Drive which commenced a few minutes away.
Thank you Joan & Bob.

We have the pleasure of staying at Woodward House 2-3 times per year, and after every visit we begin to make plans for our next trip. We have been staying with Joan and Bob for many years. They are fabulous hosts! Whether you need a few quiet days away from Washington, DC or if you are just passing through Front Royal, you MUST STAY at the Woodward House. Every room is beautifully decorated and each has a private bath. There are two detached, huge cottages just steps away from the B&B, and they have gorgeous accommodations with private baths, kitchens and porches. Joan's daily to-order, skip-lunch breakfasts are First Class, and prepares you for a day of hiking, canoeing or walking around town. Enjoying the evening complimentary beer and wine is a perfect way to complete a peaceful day.

Room Tip: Splurge and reserve a suite with a fireplace. The two cottages are really fun, too, with a fireplac...

We have stayed at the Woodward House on three occasions and can honestly say that you cannot ask for better hosts or accommodations. The rooms are immaculate. The breakfast is amazing and our hosts are a delight. I particularly enjoy wandering around the house examining all the great objects they have collected over the years. You will feel completely at home.

Room Tip: We like Nancy's Perch. The cottages are quite nice though we have not personally stayed in them...

After driving the entire length of the Skyline Drive we arrived at the Woodward House to be welcomed by the warmest of hosts. Our cottage was fantastic, breakfast as truly "no lunch necessary", and we will definitely return!

We went on the advice of friends and had a lovely time. The b&b is quaint and charming, the breakfast was DIVINE, and the hosts are wonderful. If you are in the area and looking for a b&b, you will like this place.
