On our first visit to a B&B, the Chester House in Front Royal VA in 1991, we were relaxing in the hammock, daydreaming about our future, At the time we were newlyweds with two small kids. The dream of owning an Inn seemed just that, a wonderful dream. Over the next ten years, we stayed at many incredible B&B’s meeting wonderful people both innkeepers and guests, every inn was unique. We always felt fortunate to experience the differences and hoped to bring our own unique personality and what we learned to the Inn on Poplar Hill.
We set out to create an environment where our guests felt pampered and were able to escape the stress and pressure of day to day life. To create a “Special Place” where guests felt comfortable and pampered, where they can kick off there shoes, play a game or two and recharge their batteries.
As we started our journey in 2002 we did not know what to expect. We had never owned an old house. We lived in a typical suburban DC neighborhood on a 1/3 acre lot. Now nine years later, we have met so many interesting people from around the globe, and made life long friends, burnt a few dozen batches of cookies, mowed about a thousand acres of grass, witnessed over 50 weddings, solved the crime at over 60 “Murder Mystery” dinners, and so much more….
Today we spend many lazy afternoons day dreaming in the hammock. We know that dreams really do come true, we live our dream everyday. Our wish is that our guests will find a quite corner during their stay, so that they too can dream.
