Nice quite place with web access but no wireless phone service. Bar, restaurant food, and staff are just fantastic! I like to do two holiday a year at least. You just cannot beat the price and resort services with close proximity to DC. Great for couples and friends that just want to spend some time together.

Room Tip: Call about pet room, there are few restrictions.

We have been heard such good things about this place for years, but never followed through and booked a room. A last minute desire to head out of DC for Labor Day, I checked out the website and booked two nights. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. Intimate setting tucked into the mountainside, cozy room and relaxing atmosphere. Met a lot of new people from all over the area. Liked it so much, we booked another stay over the Columbus Day weekend. Totally different group of people, different vibe, but still wonderful!

Somewhere early on (like about an hour after we arrived) we realized we were probably going to be one of a only 2 straight couples. We'd not done a lot of extensive research and we are now glad we dind't because we might not have gone, and that would have been truly a shame. Bob, David and Tammy are the most gracious, accommodating and fun-loving innkeepers we've run across in a very long time. The clientele, at least during our stay, was a wonderful combination of overnight guests are folks around the neighborhood who call the Guest House their watering hole. Mostly DC weekenders and without exception wonderful people. Have at least one dinner in the dining room. Outstanding cuisine and service. You'll spend a couple of bucks, but youre on vacation...save somewhere else. The property is absolutely beautiful. Our room was small and rustic, which we liked. The real charm is all of the common areas with great sitting rooms, game rooms and the warm lodge feel to it all. We will be back soon and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our hosts and the community feel they have created at the Guest House.

Room Tip: If you're into tv and technology check in advance. Good wireless service but not tv in every room

We stayed during the labor day weekend and had a wonderful time. Very secluded resort, well maintained, with a very friendly hosts. Kind of isolated with no TV and no phone in the room but we spent the time mostly outdoors.

A great weekend retreat get away from bustling dc metro living. We'll be back hopefully during fall foliage.

We spent just one night to get away from the worst effects of Hurricane Irene, and enjoyed the exceptionally friendly welcome and the excellent, fairly-priced dinner in the very comfortable dining room. Despite the wonderfully out-of-the way location, there’s a lively bar area, and the largest count of guest lounges I’ve ever come across. But the bedroom, in the Guest House itself, was in comparison a little disappointing, and in need of some updating; and I guess some might find the ‘family-style’ breakfast (summoned by a gong at 9am sharp!) rather too regimented, and the range somewhat limited.
