Our beautiful home and bed and breakfast was built in 1860 and lies on almost 5 acres of land with large old trees, numerous gardens, a gazebo, and a lovely fountain in front. There are two stone porches, one facing the fountain, the other with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Out back we have a spacious deck overlooking the forest, as well as a cozy screeened in porch with an electric fireplace and lots of comfortable seating. Don't be surprised if you see deer, fox, wild turkeys or owls! Just off the deck we have a 4 person hot tub under a white pergola, with views of the stars overhead. Play a game of cornhole, then relax in the adirondack chairs while watching the sunset over the mountains. Our main level has hardwood floors and 3 stone fireplaces original to the home. Our large family room is very inviting with a sitting area and large screen TV at one end and an antique farm table near the fireplace at the other. Adjacent to this is the very spacious formal dining room/living room with a fireplace at one end. From here you can enter the office area lined with windows. Our kitchen is very unique with original pine flooring, a wooden ceiling with beams and handmade cabinets from the 1940's. Our favorite room is the library, which has the original pine flooring and paneling. It is a very cozy room in the winter with the fire going! Upstairs we have 5 bedrooms, 3 of which have fireplaces. We renovated a small bedroom and an attic space into a large master suite and updated bathroom. On the second level we also have a large two room suite with a beautiful new bathroom. Adjacent to the suite is another room with a newly renovated bathroom. These two rooms, the Ashby Suite and the Dogwood Room, are guest rooms for the bed and breakfast,and you would have the option to stay in them.

Our home is located in a peaceful, rural area in the lovely, small town of Purcellville in Loudoun County, Virginia. Its a beautiful area of rolling hills, horse farms, and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains just five minutes away. Washington-Dulles Airport is 40 min. away.The location is ideal as it is within an hour from the numerous sights of Washington DC or Baltimore. If you are a history buff you will enjoy touring several nearby Civil War battlefields including Manassas (35 min.), Gettysburg (1 hour and 10 minutes), and Antietam (45 minutes) or other historical sites including Harper's Ferry or the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum (both about 30 min.). Another fun venture in our area is visiting/touring the 45 wineries and many breweries (http://www.visitloudoun.org) all located within 5-30 minutes from our home. On the Loudoun Wine Trail you will find beautiful, unique wineries, many with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Breweries have become very popular in our area as well, many of which are farm breweries with the owners growing their own hops. Other outdoor activities in our area include hiking on the Appalachian Trail (10 min. away), canoeing/rafting/boating on the Shenandoah or Potomac Rivers, golfing at the many courses, playing tennis, or horseback riding. The WO&D Bike Path, which meanders 45 miles to Washington DC, can be accessed with a short drive into town. If you love to shop, the Leesburg Premium Outlets are a 20 minute drive. Other nearby shopping at antique and specialty shops can be found in the the quaint, upscale towns of Middleburg or Leesburg. We have numerous fine dining and casual restaurants nearby.

We love the beautiful setting with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! It is within a few minutes drive of many outstanding wineries and historic sites, and great restaurants. We love the character of our historic home with its original stone fencing, and enjoy the fireplaces and many outdoor sitting areas.
