We've found it.
We've found the perfect inn in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley foothills. It is perfectly sited for autumn vistas from every room and is owned by personable, charming, gracious hosts. The absolutely beautifully restored house (an early 19th-century farmhouse on a bluff overlooking a stunning view of the opposite ridge) is a model of genteel living; one could be forgiven for thinking that--as other reviewers have noted--that you've returned to a country home owned by generous family members. It was our first time there, and by the time we left, we felt we'd made new, genuine friends.
We were there last weekend, and happened to watch the October snowfall from our breakfast table (and breakfast is outstanding, by the way). I couldn't think of a better way to spend a relaxing, tranquil weekend.
Treat yourself; join the Millers for a memorable, rejuvenating weekend.
