Fifteen years ago, I visited the Conyers House for the first time. It started with a lovely horseback ride through the fall foliage of the mountains and ended in front of a crackling fire with hot apple cider and cookies - a much-needed respite from the hectic pace of life in Washington DC. From that day on, The Conyers House became my haven and I've returned season after season. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the property sits off a quiet country road, free from the sounds of cars, planes, shopping centers or people talking too loudly on cell phones. Innkeeper Sandra Cartwright-Brown has created an atmosphere of rustic elegance throughout the inn. Each room invites guests to slow down and relax, Sandra's vast collection of country antiques bringing character to every room - my particular favorite has always been The Old Attic. I love falling asleep to the sound of rain falling on the tin roof. And for horse-lovers like me, the equestrian touches throughout the inn, remind you that you are in the heart of Virginia horse country. Sandra is the ideal innkeeper. Warm and welcoming, she is always ready to answer questions and provide ideas for adventures of all kinds in the area. The best way to get a sense of The Conyers House and Sandra's own delightful personality is to watch the brief video on The Conyers House website. It introduces you beautifully to this inn which I have come to think of as my Blue Ridge sanctuary.
