Don't believe the photos or any positive reviews. We arrived at 5pm and were eventually greeted by a sweet dog. The owner showed up later and tried to give us a bill for $498 for the "Wellness Center" and said we had booked it with her on the phone and that we had arrived earlier than we had agreed upon....

We stayed for one night in May because of the proximity to Old Rag Mountain. When we pulled into the drive, it felt a bit isolated and creepy. We were immediately greeted by the owner, Shauna, who is an older, bohemian/hippyish woman (she later told us that she is clairvoyant). Our room was located in the same area where they... More

This place is magical! My significant other surprised me by bringing me to the Inn on Thistle Hill after a day of hiking at White Oak Canyon. We got in late, but our hostess, Shauna, greeted us with immense hospitality and charisma, guiding us to our reserved cottage. The Azalea Cottage was private, cozy, and elegantly decorated - very romantic.... More

We booked a room at this place in mid September having been 'impressed' by the idyllic and glowing details of it on Expedia. In no way did it match the description. When we arrived 24 hrs after making ( and paying for) the booking, the place appeared deserted and in darkness at 6 pm. Finally a dog appeared, followed by... More

We visited the Inn on Thistle Hill for a weekend getaway from Washington DC. My husband booked the vacation as a surprise for my birthday. When he told me where we were going, I looked it up online and was kind of worried after reading some of the reviews. Turns out there was no need to worry - the weekend... More

I don't know what all these negative reviews are about... Stayed at thistle kill last weekend and very much enjoyed the experience! I didn't do it to be cool. I didn't do it to make a statement.

Deep in the woods of Rappahannock County lies Carcosa. Look for the yellow sign and turn up the driveway and you will find yourself in the realm of the King in Yellow. The property looks abandoned and overgrown, but enter the main house and you will find the keepers of lost Carcosa. There is no cell phone service, no telephones... More

My fiance and I just had a nice weekend away with his parents at this B&B. To start, if you are looking for frills and fancy, look elsewhere.
