Nice spot to spend a night

3.4 on April 27, 2018

Stayed with Sam and Scott while traveling through VA during garden tour week. Their home was comfortable and Sam was particularly accommodating. I was surprised they did not have a room with 2 beds as an option for people traveling together who do not want to share a bed. Sam did allow me to bring my own air mattress (which I use at my own B&B for extra bedding), and provided sheets/blankets for me to use. All-in-all it was a comfortable home to spend a night.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you guys had a great time! Garden Week was a ton of fun and we hope to see you guys again next year. So sorry the Cranborne was already reserved, that’s the room we normally uuse for folks in your situation. Thank you though for understanding! Garden week

Girls Winery Weekend

5 on February 23, 2016

The perfect choice for a winery weekend away! The owner's are beyond friendly, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect. We had so much fun, being able to just relax at the B&B and explore local wineries (with complimentary tasting tickets as an added surprise). Turn on the record player, explore the game trunk, and relax by the fireplace!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review and we are so glad you and your friends had such a nice weekend! The wineries around here are just fantastic and we are so happy you got a chance to relax.

Generally, this B&B was an excellent experience, full of little niceties and surprises the whole time we were there. We went to a friend's wedding, and came back to a room both cleaned up and a bed turned down! Definitely full of charm.

Birthday Getaway

5 on February 11, 2014

I chose to stay here with my boyfriend and surprise him for his birthday in February of 2014. I emailed Lynn about a possible stay and she was quick to respond. When we arrived both ladies were very nice and gave us a nice tour of the house. Once in the room there was a plate of goodies on the bed and a small box of extra goodies for my boyfriends birthday. Lynn gave us nice suggestion for a place for dinner, Pomme, and they had 3 vouchers for us to visit wineries. Lynn even had a little map of wineries for us to tour. We really enjoyed the cheese and fruit tray in the evening and my boyfriend loved the sherry. The breakfast was extremely good and very fulling. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and it was just enough. There was no TV in our room but that gave us a chance to talk before bed. I really loved the night cookies on our bed when we returned from dinner. We would recommend this place in a heartbeat and would stay again, hopefully with warmer weather next time!!!

Great Find!
