June weekend at the Ascot House

5 on July 05, 2014

My husband and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at the Ascot house. It was our first stay at a B&B and from the time we made our reservations, Wendy was helpful sending us info regarding restaurants in the area. Wendy was the consummate host from the time we stepped foot in the door. The house was beautiful, as was the garden out back. We enjoyed wine and cheese both evenings with the option to be ourselves if we wished or enjoy the company of the other guests, as well as Wendy who is a most gracious host. We were greeted both mornings with a beautiful breakfast starting with fresh squeezed, juice, coffee, fresh fruit and as well as a beautiful served breakfast. It was one of the most enjoyable weekends we have had in a long time!

Worth Going Back!

5 on June 28, 2014

My wife and I arrived to find Wendy (owner and consummate hostess) and some of the other guests for the weekend enjoying the Spring evening together on the back deck. The hospitality and socializing was refreshing! The room was very nice and the building and garden beautiful. Breakfasts were excellent, as was afternoon/evening wine and cheese that grew into a small party with Wendy, ourselves, and a number of the other guests sharing wine and stories for hours into the night on the deck. Wendy can tell you all about local places to see and things to do, and even wandering the streets of Mechanicsville itself was enjoyable. We've stayed in a number of B&Bs over the years, but Wendy and Ascot House is the first that I really would like to go back to and visit again and again.

Wedding Weekend

4.0 on June 19, 2014

We spent a lovely weekend at Ascot House when we were in Pennsylvania for my grandson's wedding. The house is stunning, and Wendy is a terrific hostess. Breakfast is a feast. We were impressed to find that all the other guests were visitors who had been there before. We sincerely recommend Ascot House.

Great town, great house, great hostess!

4.6 on June 15, 2014

We were thoroughly impressed with the Ascot House. Wendy, the hostess, was incredibly kind, generous, and pleasant. Our room was beautiful and very clean. We will definitely be recommending this place to our family and friends!

Innkeeper Response
thank you so much for such a nice review

Escape Weekend

5 on June 11, 2014

By far, The Ascot House is the most relaxing B&B you could ever escape to. Wendy, the proprietor and most gracious and elegant hostess welcomes you with wine and cheeses on the patio overlooking a beautiful garden. The house has a welcoming and homey atmosphere from the minute you enter till the time you leave!! The rooms are all different and have their own personality. There isn't one you wouldn't enjoy! Wendy is at your beck and call and has the best stories and recommendations for dining, places to go, wineries, etc. We stayed for two nights, but it is never enough time to fit everything in. That's why we will DEFINITELY be going back!! Thanks for everything Wendy! We love you!! Ann, Marianne, Chris, and Nancy
