Recommendation: Nearby B&B

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need.

I can recommend George's Mill Farm B&B in Lovettsville, VA. It's a great location right near the Maryland and West Virginia line, so you can be in three states within minutes. It's a short driver from Harper's Ferry and Charlestown, WV. So far I've stayed there twice. The Civil War-era stone house is very comfortable and has been in the family for generations. There's a barn on the property (run separately) where I keep my retired horse. Fran, the proprietor, is a warm and welcoming hostess who makes a great breakfast. She spoiled us with fruit salad, blueberry and plain pancakes, slices of cooked ham and fresh eggs from free range chickens just up the road. There is plenty to do in the area, including an upscale farm to table restaurant that I'd like to try. At night you can choose from a good selection of games and books/magazines. Also, the B&B is both kid and dog friendly! Abby, the house golden retriever, welcomes visiting dogs and is great with kids. If you go, tell her I sent you and feel free to visit my horse Hobbes (he loves carrots and apples). George's Mill Farm Bed & Breakfast: 11867 Georges Mill Rd Lovettsville, VA, 540-822-5224
