We were desperate to find a place at the last minute. Ellen was very accommodating and had a wonderful comfy room available. It is very tranquil and quiet. The view of the mountains is superb, with the pond a nice contrast. Enjoyed the home made breakfast, especially the veggie frittata made with fresh eggs from her hens. Very close to the Blue Ridge. Highly recommend to travelers from the Hampton Roads area as the four hour drive can't be beat getting there.

Coming originally from California and living in Hampton Roads currently, this was a breath of fresh air, literally. Situated in the rural residential community of Bedford, this is a peaceful and beautiful place to stay. Fairly easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and near some of the more remote historical sites of Virginia, the location is great. The accommodations are top notch; guest rooms are spacious and comfortable. The Vanquility Suite where we stayed was complete with a sink and mini-fridge, enclosed porch and open porch, view of the open land and mountains in the background, easy hot-tub access, and most notable an immensely comfortable king size bed. John and Ellen are very nice, and when other guests are present offer the opportunity to eat and commune with others. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, but especially those looking for a more peaceful and communal type of stay.

From the moment we stepped on the porch and were greeted by Ellen we knew this was a special place. Ellen, her husband and her son made us feel like family. The rooms were clean and comfortable and even had reading material. The view of the mountains can't be beat and closer to home the pond, hearing the frogs, the chickens, and seeing the goats all added up to a feeling of relaxation and contentment. Ellen and her family couldn't have been more helpful and we were surrounded by beauty - what more can you ask! Suffice it to say, we'll be back!

This is a wonderful place to visit. We loved our large, comfortable room, and the great view of the Peaks of Otters, the pond on Vanquillity's property, and the Nubian goats frolicking in the fields or crossing their bridge. The breakfasts were outstanding all three days we were there. It was near the lovely town of Bedford, which has a couple of terrific restaurants, and not far from the historical sites we wished to visit. Also, it is very close to some beautiful trails in the Blue Ridge Mts. Ellen and John indeed treated us like family, and we enjoyed meeting Ellen's son Brian as well. We highly recommend this B&B!

We stayed here for one night on a trip from Washington to Florence SC with my American cousins. We chose it from the internet back in the UK and as it was my cousins first real dip into the world of B&B's I wanted it to be good.
I can say the stay was everything I had hoped it would be, the innkeepers John and Ellen were very welcoming and their home was made to feel like ours. We stayed in the The Blue room and The Garden suite and both were very comfortable with a great view over the lake from the garden suite.After cocktails on the terrace we went into Bedford for dinner at Liberty Station a recommendation of Ellen's which was very good. On our return we noticed the back lawn covered in fire flies which was amazing.
Breakfast was excellent with scrambled egg and bacon, then pancakes with syrup and home made jams but Ellen's apple butter was the best.
A great introduction to B&B's for my cousin and I am sure they will do it again, we will certainly be back next time we are in this neck of the woods.

We stayed here four years ago while traveling to a hiking program in Pembroke, VA. This time we were traveling to New Orleans for a wedding. Ellen and John are simply wonerful hosts; it feels like you are staying with relatives. The setting is beautiful with Peaks of Otter rising in the background along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Ellen prepares a wonderful breakfast and they sat with us to chat over breakfast. If you like a cozy, comfortable Bed and Breakfast that is immaculate clean, this is the place!

This was our first visit to a Bed & Breakfast and it well exceeded our expectations. Ellen and John are very gracious hosts and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. We stayed in the Garden Suite which is very nice and spacious with a comfortable bed, electric fireplace…and for the guys it even has a TV. The adjoining sitting area overlooks the beautiful scenery with a great mountain view. Many of the reviews mentioned that you are treated like family. This is very true, as we enjoyed simply having good conversation with Ellen and John. We have already told many of our friends about the wonderful experience we had and look forward to visiting again.
