Beautiful inn and close to Harrisonburg
Marshall G. · July 22, 2014
The innkeepers were so warm and welcoming. The historic nature of the inn. The beautiful room, and the welcoming touches of robes, drinks, etc.
Ann · June 10, 2014
Everything! The room was lovely and spacious, and it was so nice having a breakfast tray brought to our door each morning. We had a fabulous porch to enjoy, and the common areas were comfortable and homey. Will definitely return here again!
