My wife and I stayed at the Hope & Glory for the 4th weekend. We were told there was a cancellation, and that a cookout was planned for Sunday night. We traveled there -- we'd never been to the Northern Neck before.
Let me say the Inn is indeed terribly romantic, as they say. But....
-the cookout was apparently cancelled
-our cabin ("cottage") had a tiny shower, no bathtub, for $250 per night...
-we were never told about the existence of a pool (2 miles away) until the subject came up by accident the day of our departure
-the neat "outdoor bathtub" enclosure was overrun with insects.
All in all, we had a nice stay, the breakfast was fine (certainly not tremendous), etc. For the price we paid, we think we did not get good value. Much more TLC vis a vis the clientele is, we think, needed.
