Shenandoah B&Bs?
September 12, 2011 6:54 AM   Subscribe

Help. Mrs. McMurphy's birthday is this weekend. We've been planning to go out to a nice (you know, "cute", but not crushingly frilly) B&B in the Shenandoahs. Of course, last minute planning is constraining our options. Airbnb has been good to me in the past, but whats available now seems to have more of the "extra room at my house" kind of vibe than "remote romantic spot in the country" vibe that we're looking for. Any suggestions or experiences with nice, interesting places to stay - not necessarily strictly bed and breakfast, even - in the area? Bonus points for other activity suggestions in the region.

I didn't go to this one, as we opted for the coast of the Northern Neck instead on our anniversary last month, but I had identified The Frederick House in Staunton as a possible destination.

A coworker runs High Laurel Inn, between Staunton and Harrisonburg.

Caveat: I have never stayed there.

Forgot: there is a chili cookoff/blues festival going on in Waynesboro this weekend.

I got married and stayed for several nights at The Inn at Old Virginia. The folks there were really great, and it's a beautiful place just north of Staunton. They have a second building that's not in the main house with some very nice suites. The food was excellent as well. This was almost 8 years ago, so things may have changed, but it's worth checking out.

Sorry for the double post, but I remembered something else I wanted to say. It looks like it's going to be a bit cooler this weekend, so unless it rains, you're going to have fantastic weather for doing outdoor things. The National Park is always a good bet for that. It might be fun to walk around and see the shops in downtown Staunton too, or go see a show at the American Shakespeare Center (also in downtown Staunton). Hope you have a great time!
