“A fascinating place to visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to Belle Boyd Cottage. Our guide was very interesting and knowledgable about Belle Boyd and the house. Her enthusiasm for the topic was very evident and she took the time to answer all our questions. The tour took about an hour. The only disappointment was that the house doesn't contain any original Belle Boyd artifacts - it has nice period pieces, but that's it. Overall, the Belle Boyd cottage is worth a visit. It's good value and Belle Boyd's story is a fascinating one.

“Worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

The docent was very informative about the history of both Belle Boyd and her part in the Civil War. Even though the furnishings are replicas, they were very well done.

“Historic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

It is one of the oldest houses in Front Royal. The staff was very friendly when we toured the house. The history and stories that go with it are very interesting. Many Civil War officers had meeting here.
