Both the “Main House” and "Cabbin" at Mountain Home B&B are open for guests! Everyone is welcome at Mountain Home!
The Cabbin is a small brick building that looks like a cottage now, but still as logs in the walls. It is set up with 4 twin beds upstairs and 2 full-sized futons downstairs, a shared bathroom at the head of the stairs, and a small kitchen on the first floor. It is generally used by hikers and other travelers as shared space, but can be rented out in its entirety as well. We are just 120 steps east of the AT off Route 522 near Front Royal, VA and have hiker-friendly rates. Scott "Possible" Jenkins hiked the AT as a SoBo in 2012, and Lisa supported his adventure, so we understand what thru hikers need. Look for us in the AT Guidebooks. It's best to contact us ahead of your visit (especially for weekend stays) at 540-692-6198, via e-mail at MountainHomeAT@gmail.com
, or by Facebook messenger. Drop-ins are welcome; we always do our best to accommodate folks whenever possible.
The Main House has 3 private bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. Rooms are simply but beautifully appointed with plush rugs and decorative fireplaces. Annie’s Room and the Gardners Room each have a full-sized poster bed and a day bed with trundle, as well as historic, built in closets with lovely faux-bois doors. Rebecca’s Parlor, on the first floor, is handicap accessible and has a queen sized cabinet bed and private, accessible bathroom with ADA compliant vanity and toilet and roll-in shower. In addition to the lovely tile in the bathroom, historic touches include the stately fireplace, very high ceilings, antique furniture, and even a vintage Edison hand-crank phonograph.
The Main House also has a game room and fitness room that can be used by guests.
Breakfast in the Main House is included and is always offered to all guests staying in both the Cabbin and the Main House. The food is simple but fresh, and is organic and sourced locally as much as possible.
We also look forward to having groups use the parlors and dining room in the Main House for personal events (weddings, receptions, etc.), business events (retreats, meetings, celebrations, etc.) or small community activities (e.g., quilting groups, book clubs, teas, scout groups, recitals, yoga, first aid training classes, etc.). Because Mountain Home is a B&B, you will need to bring in your own food, or have it catered by a local restaurant or caterer. Contact us for suggestions and to work out the details. We can provide china, silverware, placemats and table cloths for your event.
We try to manage Mountain Home in a “green” way, including reducing, reusing and recycling as much as possible. We try to host “green” events that minimize waste. We serve organic milk in reusable, glass bottles, buy organic and locally-sourced foods as much as possible, and serve only real maple syrup. We make food from scratch or from minimal ingredients as much as possible, including our own jams and jellies (in many cases from berries grown on family property or apples grown locally). We work with our guests to meet all their dietary restrictions and can easily accommodate guests who need to stay gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegetarian, or vegan. Our kitchen is not set up as strictly Kosher or Halal, but we will do our best to accommodate all dietary needs.
Meanwhile, we are working to rehabilitate the 5 other buildings on the property. We are working with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the National Park Service to ensure we are making repairs and improvements in line with their standards. Stay tuned for more information as continue our efforts to bring Mountain Home back to life.
