Our family traveled to Rawlings, VA to fulfill our daughter's requirement to do her open water dives for her certification. Because we were bringing along our Yorkie, we required pet-friendly accommodations. It turns out Brunswick Mineral Springs allowed pets in their guest house (Sammie's house) and it was perfect for our needs. The grounds and house are historic dating back to the Colonial days. Driving through the entrance and approaching the main house, many mature oak trees dot the property giving the property a feel of colonial era grandeur. Even though our time was very short, David was very accommodating, allowing us to check-in early. The guest house was very clean and comfortable and well taken care of.
David had breakfast ready to go early in the main house. Servings were very generous and well prepared, omelets, pancakes, potatoes, coffee and juice. You will not go away hungry! My wife and I enjoyed talking to David over breakfast, he has a cheerful, friendly way about him and will definitely make you feel at home. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to tour the house and grounds in more detail. We will definitely want to comes back though!
