This is a great little B&B in the wonderful town of Middleburg VA. Rooms are old and floors squeak, but it feels like your grandmothers house and that is how a B&B should be.
With that said, service and details have the "local feel" as well. "Charlotte" was quick to snap at me that I was three hours early to check in when I was simply walking the grounds looking for staff as there is no real arrival process.
The housekeeper upstairs recovered from the above abrupt welcome with a warm smile, a magnificent lunch recommendation at the Market Salamander downtown Middleburg and excellent wineries to visit. I would also recommend the Fox Inn for dinner.
Breakfast in the morning was late (again - you get the non resort experience here) but the food was very good. Coffee ran short all morning as they tried to keep up with the volume and pulled it away far to early for our wedding group who all needed some caffeine.
The beds and room were clean and comfy, but while the internet is free...it is also very slow. The grounds are a highlight at this B&B. Great pool, horses to feed, an expansive lawn and a wonderful porch to hang out at all day and night.
