My wife and I visited Harrisonburg recently, staying in the 1790 Suite for the 2nd time. Room was extremely comfortable, though a severe storm did expose a few minor leaks and drafts in the otherwise charming late 18th century house. The inn is quite convenient...More

Thanks for taking the time to review your visit - stormy & leaky as it was. Alas, a 1789 house will spring leaks in a storm like the one you experienced. We do apologize for any inconvenience. Can't wait to see you again in May...More

Good morning! Thank you for your question. The Ardor of Hope Suite whirlpool tub is a one-person tub rather than two. The Bergey, Quill and Fitzgerald Cottages have whirlpool tubs for two. Thank you! Hope to have you!
