Over the past twenty five years Michelle and I have stayed at probably a dozen or so B&Bs from Gettysburg to San Diego. We visited a few multiple times. Some had great hosts; others had great food. A few had both but simply put, our weekend at Piney Hill has been our most enjoyable B&B stay to date.
Hank and Wiley are amazingly organized without being regimented; we felt more like family friends than first-time, weekend visitors. They suggested a few restaurants (Thornton River Grill in Sperryville was excellent!) and arranged for an in-room massage (which was outstanding, also) and provided complimentary wine-tasting cards at Gardino Cellarson on our way home. We were looking for a relaxing Anniversary weekend and it was beautifully delivered; though, I'm sure that if we wanted a weekend of hiking and ATV or horseback riding, that would have been delivered just as completely.
The location is relaxing; the food, tremendous; and the hosts are a blast. Every detail of our stay was polished and perfect. I highly recommend Hank and Wiley's Piney Hill Bed and Breakfast for a decadent escape to the Shenandoahs. Our only regret is that it took us seven years to find this gem only two hours from home!
Oh yeah, don't forget to take home a cookbook! (and ask about the second edition...)
