"Wow. The Play Garden in early spring: there never was such a sweet place, clad in the fragrance and soft beauty of mid-April in the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Valley. It was cold when we arrived. No matter. We felt warm and loved. We watched as winter was shed a little more each day, and wild flowers bloomed and trees greened. There was much to do around the neighborhood, and we especially enjoyed several visits to Art at the Mill (Burwell-Morgan Mill in nearby Millwood). Old and new friends joined us during our ten-day stay, and they promptly fell in love with The Play Garden. Who can blame them? We will return."

"We gathered family from Texas and from The Netherlands to celebrate my son's wedding in Fairfax VA. The home was perfect. There were 12 of us staying in the home and we had plenty of room to be together and plenty of room to spread out and find our own quiet spots as needed. My 86 year old mother took the downstairs room which had a futon in a room next to a full bath as her domain. It was perfect as she did not need to climb the stairs. The back door had only one step which also made it easy for her to come and go. The home was beautiful, immaculate and provided just what we needed to have a family gathering to celebrate. The neighborhood is lovely with nice, quiet and friendly neighbors (one who was playing on the street with her family took a family pic for us!) Many thanks to the owners. Their correspondence throughout the reservation process, as well as their quick responses to emails when we were on site were very much appreciated. This was my first attempt at using HomeAway. It was such a pleasant experience, I can't wait to use the service again. Highly recommend this beautiful home!"

"This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for a backwoods country "get away from the city" experience. The house is in great condition and I have yet to come across a more fully stocked kitchen. Our hosts were fabulous and did not complain when we got locked out and had to knock on their door at 11 pm at night. There is a new hot tub, which was perfect after a long hike on a trail right outside the door. The nearest grocery store is 30 miles out, but we didn't mind the drive into town to pick up supplies. We found the Griffin Tavern in Little Washington to be fabulous! I am not a big fan of Virginia wine, but there is plenty of great beer to be found and the people in the area are so nice. It was about an 80 minute drive to DC. Highly recommend this spot!"

"We had a delightful visit to Front Royal for a nearby wedding. "The Nest" was the perfect comfortable home away from home for the 2 of us (although the house has 3 BR), tucked into a tranquil forested hill. Lee is the consummate hostess, leaving us thorough information about the house/community, wine/snacks in the frig, and an open invitation to enjoy their lovely property. Very clean and well-furnished with all you need. Location is near north entry to Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park where we enjoyed hiking."
