Our home is located a mile outside the city limits of Winchester, VA in Frederick County. Suggested Local Attractions: Lots of Civil War history and the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley is a top visitor's spot. Visit the wonderful pedestrian mall in Old Town Winchester about 2-1/2 miles away.

House Rules

We are very meticulous about our home and yard. It is imperative that you do not drive on our yard as you maneuver in/out of the driveway. There is an irrigation system with sprinkler heads lining the driveway and curb that can easily be damaged. We have a wide, long and flat driveway that is easy to navigate. But, if you think this may be an issue please allow us to assist you to navigate without incident. The apron from the street to the entrance of our driveway is steep and most hitches drag on the driveway. Unfortunately, therefore, we can only accept motorhomes (not travel trailers or fifth-wheels) and require anything in tow be dropped at the curb in front of the house. Drop hitches will gouge the driveway so if you have a drop hitch we will need you to remove it prior to entering the driveway. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience but it's a big problem and our only recourse is to drop out of the BW program. If you prefer to not to disconnect from a towed vehicle, you may park your rig at the curb in front of the house rather than in the driveway but be aware, our street can get busy.

Location

Access Road Conditions: Long, wide, flat concrete driveway with easy access and no trees. Suburban neighborhood, 25 mph street that can get somewhat busy but I don’t have any problems getting my 35’ diesel pusher in and out. Towed Vehicle Parking Details: The apron at the entrance of our driveway is rather steep and most hitches drag and scrape the driveway. For this reason, sadly, we can only host motorhomes and fifth wheels (not travel trailers) and require anything in tow be dropped at the curb. We've been having issues with drop hitches. So, if you have a drop hitch we will need you to remove it prior to entering the driveway. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience but our only recourse would be to drop out of the BW program altogether. We've been enjoying our visitors too much to do that!

    I arrived on New Years Eve and was welcomed by the very gracious hosts. The evening was enjoyable. The host invited me to a New Year breakfast. This was a wonderful place to begin 2023. I highly recommend this location and would definitely stay again. Very grateful to have been accepted.
