Quiet Retreat in Wine Country

Going for long stretches of time without a vacation can be challenging, so we try to go on short getaways to break up the work grind. Why is it sometimes more relaxing to take a couple of days off in a hotel rather than in the comfort of your own home? I’m sure it has a little bit to do with having someone make your bed, clean your room, and cook your meals!

Last spring, we took a chance on a Living Social voucher to stay at the Stone Manor B&B in Loudoun County, Virginia, and we were pleasantly surprised! A very short drive from DC or Baltimore lands you in a completely different world… a quiet, peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The owner/operators of this bed and breakfast were kind, charming, and keen to provide their guests with every amenity possible to ensure a pleasant stay. The area itself is surrounded by lush hillsides, small wineries, plentiful hiking and biking trails, and all-around great hospitality. It’s not overly commercialized (which we liked), so don’t expect much glitz and glamour… but if you want a nice place to relax, this might be a great option for you!

About venesueca

Have you always wondered if you should buy that product you saw on TV, visit a restaurant or city you’ve heard about, or hire a particular vendor to help you with a project? Maybe you want fresh ideas to inspire your daily life or to make the daily grind a bit easier. At venesueca.com, you’ll find the answers to many of those questions! I love to travel, see new places, try new things, and meet new people… along the way, I enjoy writing about my experiences so that others can benefit from my reviews. During my inaugural week, I will be focusing on local vendors that I’ve worked with extensively and who have a lot of talent, expertise, and value to offer their clients. In the following weeks I will be posting on travel, products, and more. Stay tuned!
