The Porches 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 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.
A unique retreat!"
