The Porches, a writer retreat, is best described by the comments of those who have stayed
"The perfect place--exactly what I was looking for: a beautiful spot
to contemplate, to get away, and to write. The Porches has a grand history
and lots of personality."
"What a glorious week! Writing, relaxing on the porch with a good
glass of Virginia wine, hiking, reading, revising, reading some more, and
writing, writing, writing."
"A quiet beautiful writers retreat--a setting to relax in and at the same time to accomplish
"Hummingbirds, the distant rush of the rapids, a train winding its
way through the valley, a full moon over the historic church and old graveyard.
Not the usual writers retreats, Porches has a special kind of solitude."
