While we enjoyed our stay we felt that we were mislead about what to expect. First of all we were expecting to enjoy the beautiful pool shown in the online brochure. It was not operational and we were not warned in advance. Also, we imagined sitting on the front porch

We are very aware of the unpleasantness of false advertising. Therefore we try to cover all bases and our website does note that the pool is closed for maintenance. We are in the process of updating our webpage and the house does overlook the Shenandoah River, however, because the trees have gotten so big in the front and the River is not visible during the Summer, we are going to rethink how we present the fact that Lackawanna overlooks the Shenandoah River.

The B&B is in a very quiet and secluded area with a campground just below it. The porch is spacious with lots of rockers, a swing, and benches. The inside woodwork is original with the dining room to the left of the front door and a sitting room to the right. Red and white wine

We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Sandy and Phil as they provided a relaxing retreat in lovely area. Super breakfast and free wine. In fact only sort of complaint was didn’t have air conditioning on as our upstairs room was warm when temp hit 90 degrees.

After making an on-line reservation for a room at this bed & breakfast I unfortunately had to cancel. I sent the innkeepers an e-mail explaining this, well within the 7 day cancellation period. I sent them a copy of my cancellation email and I was still charged the full rate

My response was not that I did not open the cancellation email but that her response was sent on the copy of her room reservation confirmation and the subject line read “your reservation has been confirmed”; so I would not have opened that email as it appeared to be a copy of a reservation confirmation which we already had in our records. I explained to the customer she would have received a cancellation for the reservation had we received her note and if she did not receive a cancellation notice it was her responsibility to follow up on her request. I also explained that we waited up until 11pm for them to arrive, thinking that they had gotten delayed in their travel. That coupled with the fact that it was our busy season and we could have rented the room several times, we did not feel it was our responsibility to refund the charge. We have been in business 20 years and our policy clearly states that there is no charge if room is cancelled up to 7 days before reservation. We do not charge any fee if that is done and room is cancelled. We try to accommodate guests the best we can and with bad weather, family health or crises we often waive the charge if we can rent the room after the 7 days. The customer must be aware that a cancellation is not in effect until they receive a notice of cancellation.

We had a very pleasant stay for one night in this beautiful B&B. The house is very quiet and comfortable. There are a complimentary wine bar and cold beverages for the guests. the house is perfectly located for trips to the Shenandoah state park and the G. Washington Forest. We

The Rose Room looks dark in this photo, but that was just my camera - it was bright and spacious
The Rose Room bathroom was wonderful!

Front Royal (if you have a car) is about as close to the Shenandoah Valley as you can be, without your actually being there. There are, of course, B&B's in the Valley itself (near Stevens City, for example). But Skyline Drive entrance may well be closer to Front Royal.
