Decorated with soft Irish green ribbon wall paper, this east room is bright and comfortable. Its windows provide sunrise views above the Blue Ridge Mountains. The bathroom's sea-foam green whirlpool tub inspired the room's name. Other delightful features include the handpainted headboard and fireplace mantel, the bathroom's unique window and ceramic tile treatment, and an antique oval pedestal sink-original to the house.
Named for the Victorian bathroom's white and gold fixtures and antique claw-footed tub and sink, this room specializes in elegance. An antique 4-poster cast iron and brass bed faces the fireplace.

My wife and I celebrated her 30th Birthday at Killahevlin last weekend. What a wonderful experience ranging from the atmosphere to the quality customer service provided by Tom and Kathy. Oh, I need to mention the fabulous breakfast for both mornings too. One of the notable experiences that we had is that we were not treated like customers, but like family instead. Again, can't say enough good things about this place, will certainly pass on our recommendations to our friends, and we will be back. Thanks again, Tom and Kathy!!! Take care, Sam and Sara

My Wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary this past weekend at Killahevlin and had an absolutely wonderful experience. This was our first trip since being married to a Bed & Breakfast. We were struck by the hospitality, the cleanliness of the entire home, the beauty and history of the home, the beauty of the surrounding area, and the pure relaxation and peace we found. The breakfasts were to die for, and Tom and Kathy were very gracious hosts. We plan to make Killahevlin a regular stop for us in the future! Thanks Kathy and Tom for a wonderful weekend!

It has been almost 11 years since we stayed here. I still tell everyone I know that is looking for a b&b to consider staying as well. We were married in 02', May 4th. We were gifted this as a wedding present from a group of friends. AWESOME GIFT!!!!!!!! We stayed in the raspberry room. Everything was stellar. We will come back one day. We have two children now, and are raising them. One day we hope to celebrate and re-join Tom and Kathy for a stay! 5 stars across the board!

A beautiful historical home, exquisitiely decorated with much Irish charm down to the smallest detail. Tom and Kathy are wonderful hosts attentive to every detail. Located in one of the most beautiful settings with excellent views of the Shenandoah Mountains. Tom's knowledge of the history of the home and the region was very educational and enlightening. Words cannot describe experiencing an early morning stroll around the property and enjoying the crisp morning air. A true gem of Virginia!

Innkeepers Tom and Kathy were more than accommodating, friendly and helpful. The Raspberry Room was beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. The entire property, especially pub, was just amazing. Breakfast was delicious as well. My fiancee and I are already looking forward to our next visit!
