Nine Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild hostelries will be open for public tours Sunday, April 24 as part of the organization’s annual open house.
Visitors will be able to view the houses and sample attractions offered by some of the county’s top restaurants, caterers, wineries, musicians, florists and artisans.
Not only is the open house free to the public, but many of the B&Bs will offer raffles, free overnight stays, gift baskets and other prizes.
The B&Bs represent a range of accommodations and settings. There will be historic homes with two or three guest rooms, such as George’s Mill in Lovettsville and Fieldstone Farm in Hillsboro, and an elegant modern home—the Mews, north of Purcellville.
Simpler buildings include the Cottage at Dunthorpe Farm near Hillsboro, and Airwell B&B, artist Lucien Powell’s restored cottage, south of Purcellville.
Larger historic properties are represented by Stone Manor and Silverbrook Farm B&B, near Hillsboro, also Briar Patch B&B between Aldie and Middleburg on Rt. 50, and Serene Manor, south of Round Hill.
Many of the participating B&Bs are sought-after wedding and event sites.
The open house brochure includes a map, addresses for participating
B&Bs and a list of all participating wineries, restaurants, caterers, musicians, florists and others who will be part of the open house.
