Cider Mill House is as welcoming today as it was 200 years ago. Then, as now, it sheltered family, friends and travelers in need of rest and renewal. The carefully restored, original stone farmhouse is the heart of Willow Run Farms, an historic working farm with 200 acres of fields and forests for guests to roam and relax. Here you can enjoy the quiet and beauty of nature with a touch of the past. We have restored and decorated Cider Mill House to reflect the 18th C. farmstead lifestyle. Where guests can choose from four unique rooms and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature and awakened by bird call.

A beautiful place to get away from it all - serene, quiet, relaxing, incredible, beautiful, creative breakfasts too. Very close to D.C year "FAR AWAY".

What a beautiful place! We so enjoyed our 3-night stay at Cider Mill House in September 2013. The room was cozy and had all the comforts of home. The bountiful breakfasts were unbelievably delicious from beginning to dessert (Yes, dessert for Breakfast!). This was our very first stay at a B&B. All others will have to measure up to this one, because our entire experience was excellent! Our hosts were so friendly and informative, and we felt they went above & beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend this one!

Fantastic experience. Loved staying on the farm. The Cider Mill House accommodations were charming and very comfortable. Breakfast - superior and loved the history from the Owners Kat and Ed.

My husband and I came here for a weekend away from D.C. to celebrate our recent marriage. It was an amazing place to take in nature--the farm is immaculate and perfectly quaint--and we fell in love with the goats, chickens, and guinea hens. Ed & Kat were amazing hosts--super friendly, laidback, and great storytellers. The breakfast was magnificent: zucchini broccoli frittata, potatoes, sausages, and more! We also browsed Kat's beautiful artwork and bought a couple prints as souvenirs. We definitely recommend this place and hope to return one day.

I first discovered Cider Mill House in 2010 as I searched for places "off the beaten path". What a great find it was! While it is somewhat off the beaten path, there is so much to see and so many places to visit in just a short drive. It was fabulous to take in the history and sites of nearby towns and then return for a relaxing evening on the front porch at Cider Mill. I just had a second stay at the house, and it was just a wonderful the second time! Patty SC

My wife and I stayed at the Cider Mill House in Hedgesville, WV on our way home to Georgia from a visit to New England in June. The accommodations were wonderful! The room was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, and offered a lovely view of the picturesque farm on which the house is situated. Our hosts presented us with a warm welcome, a hearty fresh-cooked breakfast, and pleasant conversation. The B&B is a little off the beaten path but not inconvenient and certainly well worth the side trip if only for the scenery. We would recommend the Cider Mill House as an excellent choice for anyone visiting or passing through the area!

That says it all! Royal treatment abounds. The food and service were outstanding and we ate on the patio which made it even better! Thanks.

Welcomed and enveloped by nature. This location takes you away from your busy life and pushes you to relax, be still and be at peace. Great getway just a short drive from DC or Baltimore. Breakfasts were huge and covered us till dinner. We hope to get back there again. Thanks Ed & Kat (and all those farm animals!)

Ed and Kat treat you like family - family that they like - a lot! A stay at Cider Mill House is peaceful, relaxing and low key. Kat and Ed fuss over you when they feel they need to and give you all the space and freedom you need the rest of the time to come and go, or to stay around and roam their land. You immediately feel like you're home and totally relaxed. If you like quiet, rural, country life, but comfortable accommodations this is the place for you. Everything you need is there. The bathrooms are renovated, luxuriously tiled and spacious - quite a surprise in an old house like this. It was Kat's childhood home and her pride in it and her family provide the inspiration for many wonderful stories of life growing up at Cider Mill. It's a truly special place and a privilege to be there. Ed and Kat both appear in the house kitchen early each morning to prepare your fantastic, (personally tailored if necessary) breakfasts (even when there's only two of you). Ed is the master chef! No hurrying here - they totally devote themselves to your needs with little surprises and personal touches and wonderful conversation you wouldn't get anywhere else. My gluten free, dairy free cookies and treats were delicious and created specially for me! I didn't expect that. Fresh farm eggs - yum! You can meet the chickens that provide them and call them by name. Love it. This is not your run of the mill B&B. Can't wait to go back.
