We are so pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay. So much rain this year has yielded an even more lovely landscape than usual. Knowing our guests appreciate this, is gratifying. Thanks for taking time to post your experience. Best regards! Janice & Dennis

This B&B exceeded our expectations on all fronts- it's perfectly located, rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, and the breakfast was out of this world. My wife & I were in town to experience virginia wine country, harrisonburg, and the shenendoah valley. We'll be back.More

By the Side of the Road is THE place to go for a romantic night weekend or get away. Everything in the cottage is geared towards intimacy and disconnecting from the world. You will be VERY glad yo stay here. We always are!

Good morning! Thank you for your question. The Ardor of Hope Suite whirlpool tub is a one-person tub rather than two. The Bergey, Quill and Fitzgerald Cottages have whirlpool tubs for two. Thank you! Hope to have you!
