Highly recommend. Lovely experience in the Water Lilly cottage. Porch overlooking pond. Beautiful decor. Special touches - don't want to ruin the surprise! Fabulous breakfast brought in a picnic basket.

During our trip to the Shenandoah National Park we stayed for three nights at this B&B. Nice accommodation and excellent service in a relaxing atmosphere. Don't miss the Virginia Quilt Museum in downtown Harrisonburg.

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!
