The Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild will hold its ninth annual Open House Tour on Sunday, April 30, between 1 and 5 p.m.
Twelve of the Guild’s bed and breakfasts will be open for tours, each offering appetizers, wine tastings, music, or other attractions presented by some of the county’s top restaurants, caterers, wineries, musicians, florists, and artisans.
The participants in the free tour represent all types of accommodations and settings, ranging from historic homes with two or three guest rooms, such as George’s Mill in Lovettsville and Fieldstone Farm in Hillsboro; to farm cottages (WeatherLea Farm and Vineyard near Lovettsville), to modern homes (AltaTerra in Hillsboro, and Loudoun Valley Manor in Waterford). Ginger Hill Adventure Lodge in Bluemont, one of the Guild’s newest members, offers views from the Appalachian Trail. Hillsborough B&B provides guest rooms and a swimming pool in a rustic log cabin setting. Springdale Village Inn, in the Quaker village of Lincoln, was originally a girls’ boarding school that later served as a Civil War hospital and may have been a stop on the Underground Railroad. Stone Manor and Silverbrook Farm B&B, both near Hillsboro; Briar Patch B&B Inn near Middleburg, and Serene Manor, south of Round Hill, are larger properties with restored historic homes.
