"Quicksburg" is literally in New Markets backyard, a short drive through a corn field, left past the train tracks (look both ways) zig then zag in quicksburg, cross the tracks again (look both ways) and you'll find yourself at a B&B so close to all Shenandoah county has to offer your take out food is still hot, but feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. Perched above the river, dinning on the large deck or rocking on the covered porch of this recently remodeled log cabin is about as relaxing as it gets. It's easy to fall in love with this place, FAST. Inside, every modern convenience has been added, while staying true to the original buildings historic character, in what was a well done, extensive renovation. Based on another reviewers tip, we chose the Shenandoah room, which boasts a view of the river and a two twins into a king bed. The bath, features a beautifully crafted live edge black walnut vanity made by the owners son and a single corner shower. The two other rooms feature queen beds and large double showers. There is also a loft area, rumored to be the favorite place for kids to sleep, when the whole house is booked. The place oozes rustic elegance. Walking down to sit by the river, take out the canoe or hiking up to the top of the bluff for a sunset/sunrise view, your home away from home becomes very comfortable very fast.
If the close proximity, beautiful grounds, extensive amenities don't amaze you, then the hosts, Donna and Matt and their amazing food will. Friendly, warm and inviting, without being "too much" you'll instantly feel like your visiting old friends. And their breakfasts are AMAZING! Weather permitting, served out on the deck overlooking the river, peach cobbler (peaches grown on property) blueberry French toast casserole, homemade sausages and the best (sugar cured?) bacon I've ever had! Having stayed at several Shenandoah valley B&B's and small hotels, we can positively say, this was our favorite stay, by FAR!
