"What a glorious home away from home! We wanted to stay in a couple of rooms inside Shenandoah National Park, and calculated that this home was only marginally more expensive but included 4 bedrooms/2baths, and had such comfortable beds and seating all over property inside and out. Enjoyed quiet, lazy morning reading under the shade of glorious tree and took a nap on most comfortable outdoor furniture ever. No bugs--or at least very few compared to Chicago mosquitos! Sauntered into town for superb iced soy blueberry latte at "Before and After" which also had fabulous mini quiches made from eggs laid day before. Bakery further along that road served best donut of my life! I don't normally eat donuts. These were special! Also from that bakery, a loaf of black bread that was heavenly; my daughter said it tasted like cake! (Spread with blueberry jam Owner of house kindly supplied.) Owner also so sweet and came to house helping us plan our special hiking and nature trips. A gem of a vacation spot--one of the best of my life. We have lived in England/Surrey, and this was the first time I ever saw an area that rivaled its beauty. Sunshine too! Can't say enough also about proximity to so many things historic and cultural,obviously the park, and also just the restful feeling of staying put and relaxing at the house, or going for a very challenging hike. Friendly folks at pub! Great pool tables, food, drinks, educated bunch of down to earth people. Fun and beautiful trip. GREAT beds!!!! GLORIOUS GARDENS!!!"
