For two tired parents, this was a perfect getaway. We booked the Water Lily Suite at last minute, and it was just what we needed. A relaxing and comfortable room, beautiful views from the porch of the pond, and a delightful rain shower added to the getaway weekend. We enjoyed our breakfast delivered to the door each morning, and the...

Positives: The suite was amazing, very comfortable bedding, and the view outside the B&B was beautiful, overlooking a pond. It was also very close to downtown and great eateries. There was also an outdoor market going on that morning so we stopped by. Although it's a small area, there is plenty to do during the day. I also loved that...

So much better than a hotel/motel. Porch swing was so relaxing. The only problem was getting up and down the front porch stairs. Thankfully my room was on the first floor. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in.

We had a very relaxing stay, the Bergey Cottage was very romantic. The furnishings were very nice and the pictures didn't do it justice. We loved the fireplace in the wall between the bathroom and bedroom and the jet tub was quite large and very romantic.

This was our first stay at a B&B, an experience we'll not soon forget and one we will certainly repeat. We stayed in the 1790 Suite, which was the perfect setting for celebrating our 20th anniversary! You can browse the accommodations on the site, so we'll focus on our experience and how we felt instead. The suite was historic, warm,...

This is a high end Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. They think of everything from bath salts for the whirlpool tub to a delicious hot breakfast. Wonderful experience and a relaxing get a way!

My boyfriend and I decided to plan a weekend getaway to celebrate Valentine Day. I wanted to go somewhere local but I wanted it to seem as if we were far away from home. By The Side of the Road Inn & Cottage was the perfect spot. We really enjoyed our time and we will return in the near future....

My wife and I stayed in a private, quiet, charming, well equipped, and maintained B&B cottage on the premises. Enjoyed glass of complimentary sherry upon arrival; then turned on gas fireplace for some warmth and ambiance. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and gourmet. Very comfortable bed enabled us to have two good nights sleep. The innkeepers were very attentive and...

My husband and I seldom stay at B&Bs, but this wonderful Inn is the exception. We stay in one of their beautifully appointed cabins and find the exact measure of solitude and care that we desire. With an unmatched attention to detail, the room gives all the pleasure of a home, with it's open design that still manages to convey...

Harrisonburg is very quaint, not much shopping, but a lot of restaurants. We enjoyed the scenery and it was a bonus to have a little snow to make everything beautiful. The room was very nice and quiet. The breakfast was great!

Our downtown has so many dining and brewery choices but retail stores struggle to succeed. Shared biking and foot paths are on the horizon which should improve downtown foot traffic. Should you choose to honor us with another visit, we hope our shopping will be better😊 Best regards, Janice & Dennis
