After a couple of days of searching for a good B&B in the Shenandoahs, I found Piney Hill's website and thought it looked good. I wanted somewhere central to Skyline Drive so we could hike and see the sites.
We were more than pleasantly surprised -- the B&B is in a perfect location -- surrounded by farmland with mountain views all around. It's just a gorgeous area. The B&B itself is great - the main house is charming and wonderfully restored. It's a great old house, modernized and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the new cottage out back, which is a couple dozen yards behind the house, along a winding path and garden, just past the jacuzzi and outdoor seating area. The room's great - large, with a kitchen and large bathroom, and very, very comfortable.
The owners, Hank and Wylie, are great, and experts on the area, and know where to suggest hikes, dinner and other sites. (By the way -- the stay is worth it for the breakfast alone.)
The day we left, I asked for a stack of business cards. I've already told my friends and co-workers about Piney Hill, and they'll all be planning trips soon. I can't wait to return myself.
