By the Side of the Road Inn and Cottages Review

This 1789 home features four luxurious suites and three intimate cottages overlooking the rolling hills of Harrisonburg. The inn combines 21st-century amenities with the Old World elegance of featherbeds and fireplaces. The three cottages feature whirlpool spa tubs set in front of the fireplace and 4-inch-thick featherbeds. All rooms and suites are furnished with period antiques and reproductions from Colonial in the 1790s main house to Victorian in the 1840s addition.
