We absolutely loved our stay at By The Side of the Road! From the moment we arrived, we were treated as family house guests. Dennis, Janice and Anna made us feel welcome and we loved visiting with them. Our room was beautiful. The feather bed was so comfortable, the jacuzzi bath was perfect and the fireplace was inviting. All the small details made us feel special - plush bathrobes, decanter of bourbon, bath salts, etc. The breakfast was delicious and it was especially nice having this delivered to the room so we didn't have to rush to get dressed. We will be back!
Our stay at By the Side of the Road was absolutely amazing! I book this place for our anniversary and it was the first time I or my wife stayed at a bed and breakfast. The cottage was well decorated, the staff had music playing when we walked in the cottage (this caused my wife to breakdown in tears), and breakfast was served in a picnic basket every morning and delicious, simply amazing! Additionally, Janice and Dennis were very welcoming and friendly, which added to the warmth of the atmosphere. I highly recommend this place for a nice, romantic, and relaxing getaway. My wife and I plan on returning very soon!
The coziest of setting, in the heart of one of Virginia's natural wonders. Surrounded by all comforts, in the capable hands of friends and treated to delicious breakfasts and desserts, impeccably delivered to you--and which you will need, if you plan to enjoy the Appalachian Trail!... Wiley and Hank are the perfect hosts. Thank you for an unforgettable stay! P&R
My girlfriend and myself stayed here the other weekend. Our trip was planned last minute and we had no idea what to expect. When we arrived Misty greeted us and gave us a tour of the house. Breakfast both days was delicious. No complaints about Daughter of the Stars at all.
We enjoyed our lovely stay in the Water Lily cottage. The room was beautifully decorated and most importantly, clean. The porch with pond view was wonderful. I would recommend this establishment to family and friends.
There are not enough good things I can say about The Piney Hill B and B! The owners are wonderful, helpful and kind. The cottage we stayed in is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. Delicious breakfast delivered to your door every morning. The area is quiet, peaceful and a beautiful landscape. There's plenty to do in the area or a perfect place for a relaxing, "lay around" kind of getaway. We can't wait to go back!
In over 40 years of staying at B&Bs around the country we have never had such a great experience. Hank & Wiley spent a lot of time making their guests feel welcome and, most importantly, well informed about the local attractions and dining, with the all merits and demerits of each. Breakfast was wonderful. We'll be back!
A wonderful stay in the beautiful Manor House. Suite was spacious and attractive and had many amenities. Bed was especially comfortable, and everything was very clean. Delicious breakfast. Lovely, peaceful setting.
Everything was as promised, the location is great near the caverns and the Skyline drive. The air there is crisp and the hosts are lovely. Great attention to details: Chocolates everywhere in the common area, lovely scented soaps, snacks and drinks provided in the dining area after hours as well as books for reading and travel guides. They have discount vouchers for visiting the Luray caverns and the Antique car museum. It is a great place for a stopover on a family vacation or a lovers getaway.
WOW! Where do I start! Hank and Wiley are the best! Their hospitality is over the top! I should say Piney Hill is over the top as well! We felt right at home at Piney Hill. We stayed in the Rosebud cottage and just loved it! Super clean and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast....was AMAZING! It was delivered to us in a cute little picnic basket every morning and was delicious! The snacks were wonderful as well and were waiting for us when we got back for the day. Hank and Wiley are full of information and are eager to answer any questions you may have. When we arrived they went over the area and restaurants. So, if you are thinking about staying here...Think no more...Just do it and you won't regret it a bit! LOVED IT! We will definately be coming back!! They surely have a Lil' bit of heaven in Virginia!
We spent 2 nights at the Charlet and absolutely loved it! It has 2 bedrooms and a loft, 3 queen size beds. AC, heaters, electric fire place, hot tub, grill and a big table on the deck. Kitchen has everything needed for cooking. In general very clean house. Skyline drive hiking is only 10-20 mins away. Definitely recommend this place.
We stayed in the Mountain Laurel Suite in a separate small building by the side of a beautiful pond. This must be a new build because everything is pristine. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Room has everything you could want and where the owners really excel is in their attention to detail and in providing a plethora of thoughtful extras. It's as though someone sat down and thought to themselves "hmmm…how can I make this even better?" I thought the room was a bit pricy for the area but it really is an outstanding room. A delicious breakfast is delivered right to the door. Absolutely first rate. I would definitely stay here (and nab this very room) if I were ever in the area again.
Paul and his wife provided a very comfortable BnB experience. Breakfast offered our choice of two hot entrees and second helpings! The room was comfortable but cramped (one chair too many). Upon arrival, Paul met us and gave an orientation walk through and accurate tips for dinner in town. The hilltop locale offers a pleasant view across the town. Would definitely stay here again!
Hank and Wiley really have the Brest B&B we have ever stayed in. We were celebrating our birthdays and anniversary and they made each special. The food was wonderful and plentiful also. The mid morning snacks were great. Make sure to get their cook book. We will return
We cannot say enough about our stay at Piney Hill. The Rosebud cttage was wonderful and cozy. Wiley and Hank were superb hosts. The breakfasts we had were fantastic. Our little friends the kitty cats especially Precious made our stay even better. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have asked for a better one. We highly recommend Piney Hill and we know we will be back. Ray & Yvonne
Imagine trying to plan a vacation with your husband and adult daughters. Not an easy task! Piney Hill was a hit with the whole family. We stayed for several days. We loved the rooms (our family was on the second floor), the food, and their cats. It was like staying in a farm house. Wiley and Hank treated us like part of their family. Everyone agreed it was one of the best vacations we have had. It was a great stay. Kathy and Family
Wiley and Hank were just brilliant. They made us lovely breakfasts, gave us great recommendations on where to go out for suppers, sorted out horse riding for us, and lent us maps for hiking in the mountains. The room was spotless, the setting wonderful, and we had such a great stay. I would recommend anyone to stay at Piney Hill, and should we return to the area we would definitely want to stay thee agin.
This bed and breakfast is by far the best vacation ever! it was so romantic, from the soft music playing when you enter to the candles already waiting to be lit by the jucuzzi tub. Oh did I mention the fireplace. I didn't even want to leave the room. They bring you breakfast every morning at 9 am in a cute picnic basket. I am already planing to stay for our first anniversary. Love love love this place!!!!
Very nice stay at Mayneview. Enjoyed the private bathroom in "Merlin" and loved the breakfast! Bed was comfortable and ad a nice chance to sit out on the front porch for breakfast and enjoy the long views to the blue ridge.
My friends and I stayed in the Huguenot Knight Suite on the top floor and it was a ton of fun. The owner is very nice and made sure we were comfortable and knew where everything was. He recommended a great restaurant that we ended up walking to in the town of Luray. This place has great views, is walking distance to town, served a great breakfast, and was clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a nice B&B.
We bought a groupon to check in to the water lily suite. It was a very modern suite with a huge walk in shower and modern shower fixtures. The bed was very comfortable with a down-feather pillow topper as well as feather pillows. It had a small kitchenette area with a microwave and fridge as well as a sink and dishes. There was a dining room, kitchen and entertainment area were all in a 12 sq ft area of the room directly behind the bed. There was a partition wall separating the bed from the dining area which made it feel like you were entering another room. They had a very nice setup with a electronic fireplace with colorful lights resembling a fire. They also had a small patio just outside the bedroom that overlooked a pond and beautiful wheeling willow tree. My only regret is that I wish it would have been more cozy like the original B&B where you feel like your staying in someone's home. This particular room felt more like I was in a condo. They deliver breakfast each morning which is truly exception. The owners are very nice and allowed us to tour the main house where the you get the real homey feel. All in all I enjoyed my stay but next time I'd prefer to stay in the main house.
My husband and I hit the jackpot with this first ever B&B experience. Though surprisingly close to the city of Harrisonburg (great for tasty dinners), our beautiful accommodation in one of the "Spring Water cottages" called Mountain Laurel felt countryside peaceful and secluded. We loved sitting on our private porch and enjoying the scenic spring fed pond, green lawns and huge trees. All the interior appointments (bed, bath, AC etc) were luxurious, clean and in perfect condition. The design of the cottage is amazing, as it is cozy yet has distinct areas for sleeping (great bed), eating, and enjoying conversation or TV. The hosts were kind yet unobtrusive, and Janice's breakfasts were exquisitely prepared and presented. We felt truly well cared for, and at the same time, as introverts we appreciated the full measure of privacy we found there. We highly, HIGHLY recommend By the Side of the Road.
Our first trip to Virginia, and the Mayneview was just lovely. The room was beautiful, the bed really comfortable, and the housecat Molly so friendly! Paul referred us to the restaurant at the hotel up the street, and the food was delicious! And the view was outstanding!
We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. Sally and Paul could not have been more accomodating. We loved being able to bring our dogs. Breakfast was fine. The views from the Inn were so relaxing. There was a hot tub but we forgot to bring our bathing suits! It would have been lovely to sit in the tub and watch the sun go down. Maybe next time.
