The Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild is pleased to announce that its annual Open House Tour will be held this year on Sunday, April 30, between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. Twelve of the Guild's most charming bed and breakfasts will be open for tours. Each B&B will also offer delicious appetizers, wine tastings, music, or other attractions, by some of the County's premier restaurants, caterers, wineries, musicians, florists, and local artisans.
The Open House is free of charge! Not only that, many of the participating B&Bs will be holding raffles, giving away free overnight stays, gift baskets, and other prizes to the lucky winners.
The participants represent all types of accommodations and settings, ranging from historic homes with two or three guest rooms, such as George's Mill in Lovettsville and Fieldstone Farm in Hillsboro; to farm cottages (WeatherLea Farm and Vineyard near Lovettsville), to elegant modern homes (AltaTerra in Hillsboro, and Loudoun Valley Manor in Waterford). Ginger Hill Adventure Lodge in Bluemont, one of the Guild's newest members, offers spectacular views of the Appalachian Trail. Hillsborough B&B provides charming guest rooms, and a gorgeous swimming pool, in a rustic log cabin setting. Springdale Village Inn, in the Quaker village of Lincoln, was originally a prestigious girls' boarding school that later served as a Civil War hospital (and may have been a stop on the Underground Railroad!).
Stone Manor and Silverbrook Farm B&B, both near Hillsboro; Briar Patch B&B Inn near Middleburg, and Serene Manor, south of Round Hill, are larger properties with beautifully restored historic homes.
Many of the participants host weddings and other events.
The Open House brochure is posted on the Guild's website: LoudounBandB.com. The brochure includes a map, addresses for the participating B&Bs, and a list of participating wineries, restaurants, caterers, musicians, florists, and others who will be part of the Open House.
