Great Stay!

Had a great stay at the Burgundy Lane B & B this past weekend! The inn-keepers were so nice and welcoming. You could tell that hospitality is a genuine passion for them. The breakfast was delicious and accommodations were excellent. So many wineries and orchards close by...was the perfect weekend get away from the hustle and bustle of DC. Will definitely return :-).

Perfect location!

We stayed at the Burgundy Lane B&B during our recent anniversary trip. Our hostess, Margaret, was gregarious and friendly. She had great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We enjoyed being able to walk to the restaurant and to the movies. We usually don't stay in "urban" B&Bs, but this one was perfect. We stayed in the "Out of Africa" room. All of the rooms had themes and were tastefully decorated. Our breakfast, an egg sausage quiche and homemade apple pastries, was scrumptious. We enjoyed learning the history of the house and of the business. Margaret's Corgi, Sunny, entertained us with his antics. We would definitely return if we are in the Waynesboro area. BTW, Margaret, we did stop at the Fayettesville Antique Center and found some wonderful items at reasonable prices! Thank you for the recommendation!

Great Choice, So glad we stayed here!

Innkeeper Margaret and her doc were amazing. We did not have the chance to meet her husband. She was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. She had great stories about the house and local history and was very informative. Our Room was clean and quiet, everything we needed was there and then some. Price was spot on for the area. Her breakfast was very amazing! The food was delicious, timely and thoughtful service. We did manage to have some nice conversation with other guests. The off-street parking was so nice to have and the innkeeper was ready to help us out with Stand Plates for our Motorcycles. Most of the restaurants within walking distance close about 8 to 8:30 you may want to plan ahead. This B&B centrally located with easy drives to Gettysburg, Sharpsburg, Frederick, and Hagerstown. So many attractions in the region and she has a great understanding of the AT if you want to spend some time on the trail. Top notch place to stay!!! Liz and I enjoyed our stay very much and may have to come back to hit some other place and this would be a wonderful place to stay again!

What a wonderful B & B!! Very charming house with rich history. Margaret was very accommodating and her dog Sonny was a cute dog. Plenty of off street parking. Located close to Antietam Battlefield and quick expressway access. Margaret was also a wonderful cook!! We hope to see her again!! Bill and Tammy Lind

I truly enjoyed Burgundy Lane B&B

Innkeeper Margaret lives in the House. She is very friendly and helpful. I especially enjoyed her stories about the house and local history and life in general. My room was clean and quiet and had everything that I needed. Bathroom was small with a stall shower but clean with plenty of towels. Price was a little less than other similar B&Bs in the region. Breakfast was very good...Delicious food, timely and thoughtful service, and pleasant conversation with other guests. Resident canine “assistant innkeeper” Sunny was a little hyper at first meeting, but quickly settled down and was quiet and playful from then on. In. Has very convenient off-street parking. Unfortunately there are no good restaurants within walking distance in town for dinner. Drove about 10 minutes away and had a good dinner. Inn is centrally located with easy drives to national parks, state parks, Gettysburg, Sharpsburg, Frederick, and Hagerstown, and to many other attractions in the region. Overall....A very nice place to stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your very comprehensive review. We hope that you will choose us again if you are in the area. We continue to work with the Main Street development organization to bring more dining options to the town, but haven't quite been successful. Try, try, try again.

Great Breakfast

We stayed at the Burgandy Lane Inn for 1 night on a trip to Blue Ridge Summit. Based on the reviews on-line we decided to book our stay. We had a wonderful time. Our hosts, Dave and Margaret, immediatley made us feel right at home. The next morning for breakfast we were served eggs benedict; what a treat. My husband had never tried before; he is now hooked!

Innkeeper Response
We're glad to have been able to extend his breakfast tastes with Margaret's Eggs Benedict! We had a wonderful time chatting with you over breakfast and hope you will come back to stay with us the next time you are in the area.

And charming. All rooms have their own theme. We stayed in "Out of Africa". Bed felt like new, decor authentic with a warm and cozy feel. Location great for Cunningham Falls (about 25 min). The next day we traveled about an hour to Harper's Ferry. Also close to Gettysburg and Antietam, plus the Appalachian trial. If you have any questions about history and things to do in the surrounding area the owners are extremely knowledgeable! Delicious breakfast in the morning. Excellent price and far superior to the average hotel and breakfast.

I stayed here during a section hike of the AT. They are lovely people to visit with and their services are excellent. I'm sure I'll hike through this area again and would definitely stay with them again. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!

Can't wait to come back!!

My first B&B experience, but it won't be my last!! I plan on making this a Mother's Day tradition - leaving home, staying with David, Margaret & Sunny, and soaking in the beauty of the landscape and antique shopping! Everything from their gracious patience as I showed up VERY late Friday night to checking in with me on Saturday night (after a marathon 6-hours of shopping and 4-hour nap!) to know what time I'd like breakfast, everything about my stay was warm, inviting, and satisfying!! The breakfasts were phenomenol, the bed so comfortable it was hard to leave...
