If you like antiques and pottery, you will love a visit to Strasburg and a stay at the A.C. Stickley B&B. We stayed at the inn after a visit to Washington DC, as it was on our way home. It's a beautiful Victorian inn with three guest suites. All are well appointed with beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, and spa-like bathrooms. There are dvd players and flat-screen tv's in each room also. Strasburg has a huge antique emporium, and we spent some time there. The inn is full of Strasburg pottery, and Donna, the owner, told us a fascinating story about finding many buried pottery pieces in a house they rented when they first moved to Strasburg. She even showed us around her family's living quarters, which are beautiful. Wine and cheese are offered in the afternoon, and we enjoyed the front porch with a glass of wine while watching the sunset on a warm January day. There's self-service coffee, tea, and even ice cream downstairs. We highly recommmend the A.C. Stickley.
