  • Connecting the Dots

    "Today we traveled to Etlan, Virginia where we spent the weekend at Sun Dancer. The property where Spirit Dancer, Sun Dancer and Star Dancer Lodges are located borders on the Shenandoah National Park. This weekend we had no cell phone or Internet connections. These days, we are all used to instant connection via mobile phone or computer. It is technology that makes this possible but when technology is unavailable, we are forced to connect in ways that rely only on face-to-face time where spaces are filled with hugs, discussions and actually doing things together. At night I went outside, listened to the silence above, and saw more stars than I could count. Looking up, I felt a connection to these distant bright balls of gas that inspired people long ago to create pictures and stories by connecting the dots in the sky. Other humans far away also look up at these distant points of light and, like me, are awed. In a way, during our lifetime, we are all our own stars secured to the earth by gravity and given the task of connecting the dots, the spaces among ourselves. My father once asked my husband about his philosophy of afterlife. My husband told him he believes we are made of stardust and that when we die, we become part of the universe. "The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” ~ Carol Sagan What a gift we had this past weekend--millions of points of light."

  • What a fantastic place!

    "What a gem this place is! Bonny was extremely responsive throughout the booking process, and greeted us when we arrived to have us sign her guestbook and showed us around. After her greeting we had the whole place to ourselves (though Bonny was only a little ways off in case wee needed her). It is a perfectly isolated little spot in the woods, with a comfortable cabin (AC in August was important). We loved that there was no wifi or cell service (but there is just ways up the road if you need to connect now and then). The best part is that we were able to bring our two dogs--who LOVED it! The cabin is close to a couple of cute little towns and only about 15 minutes from Front Royal and the entrance the the Shenandoah National Park, where we went on a few hikes and even ran into a black bear on one of the trails. We saw deer in the creek one of the nights we were enjoying the fire pit, and were serenaded by chirping crickets and frogs. I can't wait to go back!"

  • Wonderful

    "Had such a lovely time in this beautifully-decorated and restored home. It was perfect for a girls weekend getaway! The owner greeted us personally, showed us around, and told us about the history of the home. She even put fresh flowers out for us to enjoy in the bedroom. The house is located in direct proximity to all the attractions in historic Sperryville, including the Stonewall Abbey yoga studio (most relaxing yoga class I have ever taken, and I don't usually like yoga), the Hopkins Ordinary Aleworks, Rudy's Pizza, Thornton River Grille, Copper Fox Distillery, Headmaster's Pub, etc. A ten-minute drive to the Thornton Gap Station entrance to the Shenandoah National Park, where we were dazzled by the leaves changing for fall. Great trip, would definitely go back!"

  • Perfect escape from the city..

    "Couldn't have asked for anything more than what we received from Dick and Judy's guest house. Farm fresh eggs were awaiting us in the refrigerator. They have a little piece of heaven out there in sperryville. Being as close as you could possibly want to be to any of virginia's wineries and the quaint/cute town of sperryville. Would gladly stay again. Foot steps to hikes right down the driveway as well a short car ride away to white oak canyon and of course old rag which you can see from the front porch. Whether star gazing or vineyard touring or just flat out relaxing. It's a great place to call home away from home. Thanks Dick and Judy!"
