What a lovely stay! My boyfriend and I chose Killahevlin for a long weekend in the Shenandoah wine country and we couldn't have been more satisfied. Tom and Kathy were excellent hosts, the room was immaculately clean and welcoming, and we felt like home as soon as we arrived. Great breakfasts, too! I believe we may have been the last...

Anniversary Weekend...beautiful, scenic inn that has aged and requires a little bit of upkeep. Tom has decided to sell the property. Its nice to Have Harp on tap, and a nice big sauna to relax in. Tom indicated there was a TV in this room, but when we arrived, it was not, or it was broken. Not a big deal,...

Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control are forcing us to sell the B&B. The television in the room had been working, but when I checked it out the day before this guest was to arrive, I found it was not working. Rather than try to act surprised, I told him truthfully that it had given up the ghost and I hadn't...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Killahevlin. Tom and Kathy are great hosts! The room was clean and breakfast was delicious! Tom is very creative with his fruit dish and everything was fresh and delightful. The house is historic and provides a great atmosphere to step away from the modern world for a bit.

We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years but have never had a more delicious breakfast than the ones Tom prepared. We spent two nights in the Blue Room and it was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed soaking up the afternoon sun on the sleeping porch. It was truly a wonderful getaway!

We were able to get a last minute reservations here for a Sunday night and it was the most relaxing 24 hours we've spent anywhere in a long time. Spent the afternoon at a winery and then checked into the Blue Room--very cozy, clean and comfortable, even with the freezing temps outside. Tom is a great host--made sure we had...

We just spent Valentine's Day weekend here and loved it. It was exactly what we need to disconnect from the everyday and enjoy some peace and quiet. It was located near half a dozen local vineyards. Definitely recommend Naked Mountain. Loved the porch for reading, although it was a tad cold. It would be a great addition to add a...

Great experience! Tom was a wonderful host. We stayed in the green room and loved it. Tjere is a great view of the mountains. Dont miss a oint of Harp beer or a glass of wine. We would recommend this b and b to everyone. Front Royal is a great get away from the DC area.

We only spent one night a Killahevlin but would love to go back again some time. The little Irish pub for guests is great. We were the only guests that particular night, but feel it would be great fun to interact with other guests. The room was comfortable and clean. Loved the history of the house; would highly recommend it.

We returned once more to Killahevlin for a weekend stay. Just as wonderful as last year. The bar is a wonderful gathering place. Each year we meet the nicest fellow guests. The food is also delicious. Tom is a great chef. Local dining options (arranged by Tom) are great and reasonably priced. Located in the heart of wine country, it...
