If you are looking for a unique, romantic and restful getaway near Shenandoah Valley National Park, you've found it! After a day spent hiking in the icicle-laden park, we enjoyed warming up in the outdoor hottub at subset, gazing at the stars (a rarity for us city dwellers) and waking before first light to hear the wind blowing through the valley. Staying here means having a luxuriously appointed, free-standing studio all to yourself. The horses, chickens, dogs, and cats on this working farm are friendly and fun to observe. A plate of home baked cookies was awaiting us when we arrived, as was the next day's breakfast, a full pan of quiche, homemade zucchini bread, yogurt parfaits and orange juice. Great food. We left with two dozen fresh eggs from Betsy and Ed's productive hens. Wish we'd had more nights to explore the history of the place and its owners, including ties with the better known Edgar Allan Poe. A truly special experience!
