Family visit

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I traveled with our dog Kama from Maine to Virginia to visit family. We stayed at Traveler's Rest and it was absolutely wonderful. It was so nice and peaceful and they had everything we needed. It beats a stuffy hotel room any day. The owners were very friendly and made us feel right at home. We will definitely be back.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Traveler's Rest was beyond peaceful. The home was lovely and Agnes was totally accommodating. Our horseback riding lesson with her was great. She really took her time teaching us about the horses. The other animals on the farm were also fun to be around. We hope to be back soon for another horseback riding adventure! I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone interested in a relaxing getaway. Thank you, Agnes!

Christmas Surprise

  • 5 out of 5
The vacation experience was better than what we had expected. The owners decorated the house in Christmas lights, a beautiful tree and had chopped wood for the fire place. The home is absolutely charming and the farm is beautiful. We enjoyed petting the horses and walking the grounds. The beds were very comfortable and we felt completely at home. We will be visiting again for sure.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 out of 5
Charming weekend get-away. Agnes allows for privacy while also offering horse back riding and floral classes if interested. Her floral work can be seen throughout the cottage. Beautiful views at sunrise and sunset. My Husky dog did not want to leave!

Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful stay at Travelers Rest over the Thanksgiving weekend .My wife and I along with our dog met up with my son and his wife and our two grandchildren. We hiked,played a family football game,met the horses and of course the wonderful family dogs. This was such a unique Thanksgiving. My son called last night and said this was the most memorable Thanksgiving ever! And we can't forget the multitalented Agnes She and her lovely family could not have been more accomodating.
