Guest Comments
"One never knows who they will meet 'By the Side of the Road'!  We so enjoyed our brief stay with you in your charming house.  It was only too short..."
Corine & Colin

"This is our first B&B visit and it was wonderful!  Thank you for the recommendations and the wonderful breakfast!  Both days exceeded my expectations." Tonya & Shane 

"What a wonderful place to celebrate our twelfth anniversary!! Your home is not only cozy but welcoming, as well. We felt very pampered throughout our stay-the featherbed, the gourmet breakfasts, the comfortable sitting room, the private porch with the most glorious shade trees, the swing on the back porch-all together made for a terrific and romantic 'home away from home'. Thank you for your graciousness and hospitality. We look forward to staying with you again." 
Mary & Jim, Chesapeake, VA

"We had a wonderful getaway. We spent more time here than we had planned, due to the rain and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. Love the porch swing and the beautiful garden and the fire. We have a tradition of staying at bed & breakfasts going back to our honeymoon (almost 22 years ago) and yours ranks right up at the top! You are very gracious hosts and the food was superb! Thank you." Alex and Mark, Richmond, VA
