Our first review! Sarah's house is a beautiful, recently-renovated hidden gem near the Shenandoah national park. It's spacious yet cozy for our group of 7. We really enjoyed our time there. Highly recommended for any groups who are in town for a weekend of hiking. Did I mention that there is a pond within their 8-acre compound? A lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of city life just by itself! John from New York City, NY. ( near to middleburg)
