Great honeymoon spot. Breakfast was delicious and loved the door delivery every morning. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet.

My wife and I stayed in the Bergey Cottage from 29 March - 2 April 2015. What we loved most was the fact that we didn't have to get dressed to get breakfast, as it was brought right to our door in a basket. The only down side to that is, should you wake up early and hungry, you better have snacks in the room with you since breakfast is delivered at certain times. Breakfast alternated each day between sweet and savory. The cottage is cute and split down the middle where the bed/living/dining area is on one side and the bathroom/tub/shower on the other. A little too cozy with the open ceiling when you or your partner need to use the bathroom. We just turned on the music to have a little privacy. Some complained that the inn was too close to the road. Um...look at the name, should be no surprise there. We barely heard any traffic...not the busiest street. We loved the area. Harrisonburg is easy to navigate and there is plenty to do. I was able to get three rounds of golf in. The course I enjoyed the most was right down the road. My wife was able to get some much needed pampering at a local spa. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, and the cottage is equipped with a microwave and small refrigerator for any leftovers you may have. The room also has the essentials...tv, dvd player, radio w/ cd player and usb hook up, coffee maker, etc. The Inn's owners make the experience even more comfortable by littering the entire property with beautiful aspects of their family. Upon entry into our cottage, we were 'greeted' by beautiful family pictures that gave the place an even more, 'home away from home' feel. The owners and inn keepers are there if you need them, willing to give you a tour and answer any questions you might have. However if you want to be left alone, you wouldn't even know they were there. James Madison University is close by, however this felt nothing like a college town. We would definitely go back!

We love the Fitzgerald cottage. It was our second time staying in it and it was as charming as the first time. Relaxing in the two-person jacuzzi in front of the wood-burning fireplace while sipping sherry is a grand way to spend a couple of hours during the evening. The innkeepers are always so pleasant and the breakfasts are delicious. The lack of communal dining is also a plus in our book! Thanks for keeping such a delightful B&B!

My wife and I stayed for our first anniversary and loved our time at By The Side of the Road. We stayed in the beautiful and modern Mountain Laurel cabin, part of the Spring Water Suites, and loved the privacy, as well as the luxurious, roomy, and well stocked accommodations. Breakfast was delivered to the door each morning and we were able to start our days at a relaxing pace.

There is no onsite dining (it is after all a bed and BREAKFAST). Breakfast though was very good. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

It is not easy to find a B and B that allows you to bring children, and also allows you to just stay one night. By the side of the road allowed us to do both of these things. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

Passing through town and what a great place to stay. Owner and innkeeper were extremely pleasant and personable. Hot, delicious meal delivered to our room to enjoy in private was fantastic. If we ever venture that way again, we will definitely visit again. Thank you.

My husband and I had a fantastic, relaxing getaway for our anniversary. The Cottage/Suite was well equipped and beautifully decorated. The scrumptious breakfast was a special bonus.. along with the anniversary wishes and glass of champagne. We will surely consider this Bed and Breakfast in the future.

Upon arrival at the Mountain Laurel Suite, music was playing and the fireplace was lit which really set a romantic ambience. We felt as though we didn't have to leave the room for anything. The place was very clean and contemporary. The entire stay was amazing!! Key hightlights were the shower and bed. Food was unique in selection and presentation. Very delicious!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay so much! It snowed the weekend we were there so we couldn't do much as far as get out and about but we were completely fine with that because it was like our very own sanctuary away from home! We stayed in the Fitzgerald Cottage and was taken away with the fireplace and jaccuzi! The breakfast each morning was absolutely wonderful and we will be back once the weather breaks!
