Our stay at Ray & Melissa's wonderful boutique B&B was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. After a long day driving from DC, through the Shenandoah National Park, we were hoping our chosen stop would prove a relaxing and enjoyable 2 days and couldn't have asked for more.
As soon as we walked through the door and saw the 'Welcome' board with our names on, we felt at home. Ray was very friendly and walked us around the property showing us our room and explaining the amenities available to us. The room was lovely and the whole property had been restored very tastefully. What makes this place so special are the little touches that are so well thought through - the delicious home made cookies, wine social hour each evening and complimentary water/sodas, tea & coffee and snacks. The pool area was really relaxing and overlooked the spacious gardens so a great place for chilling out.
The breakfasts were great as well - each morning a different combination - I wouldn't normally order something like French toast with bacon but Melissa's version was absolutely delicious, not forgetting the home made Granola!
Ray and Melissa were perfect hosts and by the time we were leaving felt like old friends, a truly memorable experience. Don't miss the wonderful Rockbridge vineyard, only 5 minutes drive away - free wine tastings and a lovely picnic/seating area.
