White Fence Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 2 Stanley B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 21, 2008

We were married in June at the White Fence Bed and Breakfast. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. I ordered wild flowers for my bouquet and they were very beautiful. We were looking for a stress free wedding and it fit the bill without losing the intimacy of a ceremony.

We then stayed in the English Ivy Cottage. The cottage was also very nice. Our bed had a pillow top and was comfortable. The entire Inn was also clean...which is a must. The breakfast at the main house each morning was amazing too. Just when you thought you couldn't eat any more delicious food, a better, tastier dish was presented. The breakfast was also a great mix of healthy foods. We had a fruit and yogurt mix one morning that was to die for.

Last but certainly not least was our host and hostess. Sally and Mike did everything they could to make our stay a pleasant one. Family and friends have raved about our wedding pictures. We look forward to returning.

My new husband and I were married at White Fence on June 7, 2008. Mike officiated and Sally took pictures. We got married near the large magnolia tree on the grounds, and our wedding was everything we wanted. Mike and Sally were amazing hosts, and our accomodations in the Blue Ridge Carriage House were well above our expecations.

The Carriage House is really a private cottage. It was spacious and clean with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and a little kitchenette. Even the mini-fridge was stocked with some cold sodas! The cottage was definitely beyond our expectations and we were blown away by how nice it was.

Mike and Sally were so friendly and so interesting to talk to, and they had some great recommendations for places to eat in Luray (which is only a short drive away). Breakfast was delicious -- we loved the breakfast basket delivered to our door.

We will definitely return!

My husband and I wanted to find a Bed and Breakfast for our 4th anniversary instead of a boring hotel. The White Fence Inn had been recommended to us by friends of ours, so we decided to stay there for 2 nights.

The landscape was beautiful; I can see how it's a popular wedding site. The hosts were very gracious to us and accommodated our every request, such as an earlier check-in, our wish to view the other guest quarters (before the others arrived), and they even provided us with breakfast earlier one morning so we could start our day earlier. The food was delicious and they kept offering us more!

The jacuzzi was a neat experience to have, and we were very pleased with the French Lavender suite that we chose.

We found lots to do in the area, such as berry picking, flea markets, hiking, the Caverns, and cute little restaurants in Luray. The entertainment book provided in each room was very helpful to us, as we hadn't researched activities to do in the area.

Mike and Sally were gracious hosts and we enjoyed talking with them about the history of the inn. We would definitely stay here again!

We wanted to get away from the city and looked at several Bed and Breakfasts online. When we finally decided on the White Fence, we were pleased. We communicated with them through e-mail to set up a couple of extra treats for us - and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful.

The breakfasts were delicious - and more than one little plate of food! We were served promptly and even though we were there for three days, each breakfast was different. We enjoyed spending that breakfast time with two other couples and enjoyed talking to both Sally and Mike. They had helpful hints about the area as well as good directions.

The room was so nice - and yes, they do live directly below the Shenandoah room - that's the way B&B's are. The family lives in the same house. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were NOT old - but rather crisp and they felt wonderful. We had our own AC controls and were quite comfortable the entire time.

We were asked if the cats bothered us - which they didn't - but they made it quite clear that they would keep them out of our way. At no time were they in the dining room. Yes - they were outside and oh my goodness, not in the way at all. We spent a couple of evenings out on the front porch watching fireflies and we appreciated the quietness. The lawn was well manicured and just beautiful.

In no way did we feel micro-managed at all. We were given a tour of our suite and then really just left alone. There were a few instructions around the room including a caution about being careful about red wine and instructions about using the jacuzzi which I very much appreciated.

I saw that someone in a previous review couldn't figure out how to use the "old fashioned key". Well my goodness - this is a Victorian house and that is the type of key they used. We had no trouble using the key and I'm sure if we had have, we could have easily asked Mike and Sally and they would have helped.

There were movies and books available, a CD player with a couple of relaxing CD's provided, a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, robes, TV etc. etc. Sally made a wonderful picnic lunch for us one afternoon - I was amazed how much was provided for us! It was delicious.

I'm so sorry to see the previous post with a bad review. I know you can't please everybody - but we had a wonderful time at a beautiful B&B and we will definitely return as well as recommend it! Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Just married, we drove down to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley for our week long honeymoon. As we drove up the road and turned into the driveway, we were greeted by quaint landscaping and a charming house. We opted to stay in the Blue Ridge Carriage House which exceeded all of our expectations. Cozy and quiet, we spent much of our time just enjoying each others company in the peaceful atmosphere. The cottage was even stocked with a great selection of movies! Mike and Sally were every bit as charming as the cottage. Both were very informative of the area and made very good suggestions. The food was exceptional! We ate something different every morning and the warm, flaky croissants were a favorite! We got the breakfast basket two of those mornings which was a nice option if you want to spend the morning in bed. They were left on the front step after a knock on the door. Privacy was very much respected. If you are looking for a bed and breakfast experience, this is the way to go. Don't come expecting a hotel, because its not. If you are not willing to be personable and relax in a family type environment, we saw a few motels in Stanley you could stay in, but you simply will not get the excellent service and hospitality we very much enjoyed during our stay at the White Fence Bed & Breakfast. We look forward to our anniversary there!

For Valentines Day my boyfriend suprised me with a weekend getaway at this charming Bed and Breakfast. I was a bit nervous, having never experienced a place like this before, but upon entering I felt completely at ease. We were welcomed with open arms by the owners and by the most adorable puppy you have ever laid eyes on! We already knew about the pets in the house since my boyfriend always does his research and we were happy to be in such a loving environment.

We were guided to our room and to my surprise and delight it was decorated in my favorite color (which you will have to experience to find out). One of the most romantic aspects of the room was the double sided glass fireplace. We could relax in the sitting room or enjoy the view from the plush sleigh bed in the master bedroom. We were impressed with the spacious bathroom and the private Jacuzzi which was perfect after a long day of exploring the beautiful Shenandoah National Park.

Breakfast was served sharply at 8 am where we met the other young couples, one of whom had just gotten married the night before. It seems as thought the White Fence attracts easy going, kind people. It must be the owner’s great hospitality and the positive energy that is clearly felt about the place. All three couples were completely smitten.

As far as adventures go, the Shenandoah National Park is roughly a 30 minute drive through some of the most awe-inspiring landscape. If you 've never witnessed what this park has to offer start making plans today :) Also the neighboring towns have plenty of eclectic shops, galleries and don't forget about the array of caverns that are available to visit.

I would highly recommend this cozy getaway to any couple with peaceful hearts, who love to enjoy life’s simple pleasures and great hospitality.
