Beth and Spencer,

We’re finally settling down from all the wedding chaos… just in time for the holidays, right! We wanted you both to know how much we truly appreciated all that you did for us for the wedding weekend. The B&B was beautiful and you both were so hospitable. Our families were completely taken with the place and it made things so enjoyable for Ben and me. Beth, you really put me at ease even when things got stressful on Saturday (I’m sure you could see how worked up I got). If you weren’t there to help out I don’t think I would’ve recovered and been able to enjoy myself. Looking back on everything, it really was one of the best weekends of my life – although I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. We had so many people tell us that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and I think they really meant it. Thank you so much for making that possible.

Much love and many thanks,
Kristin and Ben

Dear Beth & Spencer,

Thank you SO MUCH for taking such great care of me & Jackie during our DC to PA bike ride. Of course, The Stone Manor was our favorite overnight stop, and we’ve been telling everyone how great you two are! I hope to come out for a longer, more relaxed stay with my husband next time!

Hope to see you again soon!
Pam Semanick & Jackie Perchinske

Dear Beth & Spencer,

Bill and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your home while on vacation. You have a lovely home, and you were perfect hosts. Your home is beautiful and so are the both of you. We couldn’t ave had a more special welcome from the both of you. We don’t know if our lives will ever cross again, but we will never forget you.

Pat & Bill

Dear Beth & Specer,

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your gracious hospitality. We especially enjoyed the wonderful goodies at breakfast and the chance to sit around the table a bit before setting off to busy days.

The rooms and the whole property are just beautiful.

Thanks so much,
Merry Ellen & Lou Theodore

Dear Beth & Spencer,

Almost two months have passed since my girlfriend, Pam and I stayed with you, but we still think of your kindness. We often recall your gracious and sincere hospitality. We thank you for making our short get-away a special and memorable retreat. Both of you treated us as very important guests, yet we felt as if we were staying with our new-found family.

I believe you guided Pam in after a long drive, mellowed her with merlot, pampered her with pasta and comforted her with your company. Thankfully, you both insisted on picking me and my bicycle up at the train station so that I could join the memory. Truly, we are thankful.

John & Pam, Philadelphia

Dear Beth and Spencer,

Thank you for allowing us to have our wedding and reception at Stone Manor! You were both wonderful to work with and were so accommodating and we are truly grateful. Stone Manor is an amazing place. I can’t wait for our pictures to be done so I can send you a few. Thanks again!

Best wishes,
Jason & Rebecca

Dear Beth & Spencer,

Only by the grace of God could we have been guided to Stone Manor. The pictures – though beautiful – can not possibly do this Virginia Manor house and gardens justice. I still dream of the food! You were right about the food coma from that five course breakfast! Karen said to thank you for the bath salts you designed for her. They completely healed her psoriasis and made her skin feel wonderful! You were right about the dead sea salt and magnesium sulfate mixture!

Thank you for teaching us about Sustainable Agriculture and companion planting. Thank you for showing us that simple animals like chickens can cuddle and give love. I never even imagined chickens who answer to their names and run into your laps for cuddling! The night we spent strolling through your gardens, eating dinner in the twilight in the terraced rock gardens and watching the stars come out (while cuddling a chicken!) was truly a life experience for this city boy.

Next time we come, Karen wants to try the Manor Suite! She loved the Turret Suite with the ten-spray shower for two but has been dreaming about that sumptuous hand-carved canopy bed!

Karen & Rick, NYC

Dear Beth and Spencer,

I would like to thank you for all you did in making Aimee’s birthday weekend so special, it is truly a memory that we shall cherish always.

The love and care that you show to your guests make a stay in your beautiful home more like visiting loving family than visiting a B&B.

Your attention to even the smallest of details all goes towards making a stay with you a real ‘life experience’.

I have already recommended a visit to Stone Manor for several friends, and Aimee and I will return.

Chris Taylor

Stone Manor is a vibrant and warm bed and breakfast, that balances beautiful classic decor with modern colours and amenities such as cable tv and jacuzzi tub. We deeply enjoyed the creative food pairings and interesting ingredients in the breakfasts prepared by Spencer and Beth before we hit the trail for some fantastic wine tasting.
Our only regret is that we could not stay longer, but we will be back!
Thank you for your great hospitality.

Warm Regards,
Benita and Brian

Dear Spencer & Beth,

Stone Manor is breath taking! The food was fantastic! But the true beauty lies not in the manor and not in the food. The real beauty lies in you. Your genuine kindness, generosity and going above and beyond the call of duty truly sets the bed and breakfast apart! Our 24th wedding anniversary will always be memorable and special.
I recommend it to everyone who will listen! We hope to be back soon!

Terry & Jill

Dear Beth and Spencer,

Herb and I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful weekend. What a way to bring in the New Year! Your warmth, food AND signing were so wonderful! Your generosity so heart-felt! We have truly been spoiled! We pray you a VERY prosperous New Year and look forward to seeing you again soon!

-Kimberly and Herbert

Dear Beth and Spencer,

What a magnificent time our guests and we had! Our wedding and reception was exactly what we both hoped for… So intimate and full of friendship. You have a wonderful B&B and your cooking is amazing! Best wishes to our new friends. We’ve bragged about you guys to everyone we know. Best wishes and hugs,

Brice & Val (Jack and Molly too! – She’s newly adopted and a great friend/companion to Jack)

Beth and Spencer were the most gracious hosts and created an elopement package for us that exceeded all expectations!Our family is still talking about the outstanding meal you put on for us. Thank you so much, we are so appreciative of everything you both did for us! We have been recommending the Stone Manor to everyone we know.

Jen & Eric

Dear Beth and Spencer,

This was our first time at a B&B, and you really spoiled us. We couldn’t have had a more relaxing and enjoyable stay. We felt right at home in the comfortable surroundings, and the food was excellent. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Barb and Tim

Beth and Spenser do a great job. The breakfasts are awesome-6 courses and the best anywhere. They made you feel so welcome and the rooms were gorgeous, clean and tastefully done. Stone Manor is as good as it gets! Highly recommended. Go and treat yourself!

Joan McQuillen

Beth & Spencer,

Thank you so much for the wonderful and relaxing weekend we just enjoyed. Your home is amazing. It was great to see Felix feeding the chickens and getting to enjoy some wine and great conversation with the both of you. Your hospitality is unbeatable and something we will never forget. You made us as well as everyone else who stayed feel like family. Thanks again to the both of you.

Felix & Lisa

I would like to express my most sincere gratitude for making possible for us to stay at your beautiful home. Rob and I rarely have time for ourselves and you made our short get away the most enjoyable time we had in many years. Beth, you are absolutely amazing, sweet, kind and generous; your house is beautiful and we can’t wait to go back. We already made it our special place! Thank you so much for everything!!

Laura & Roberto

Beth & Spencer –

What a blessing for us in the midst of the chaos of Hurricane Sandy! Thank you for not only making us feel welcome, but spoiling us to no end. The meals were fabulous, the company even more perfect. We can’t thank you enough for making my birthday even more special. We hope to visit again!

Donna & Alan

Dear Beth and Spencer,

My husband and had an amazing time as your guests and the hospitality you provided us was out of this world. Every morning I got a new appreciation for breakfast.

The surronding landscape was a peaceful retreat from the city and provided a great background for relaxing on the porch with a glass of wine. I can’t think of the last weekend getaway my husband and I have taken where we were that relaxed when we left.

Thank you Beth and Spencer for all the wonderful hospitality, food, conversation, and most of all opening up your home to us. We already want to return.

  1. Kathy Kiskis & Karl Dominique says

    Dear Beth and Spencer, Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality when we stayed at your lovely home this past weekend. This was our very first B & B experience and we were alittle apprehensive, but as soon as we arrived and met Sue, we knew this was going to be a wonderful time. She was so friendly and informative, it put us at ease immediately.
    The rooms and furniture are so beautiful and interesting. Thank you for letting us explore and see all you have to offer. The decor is just amazing and the grounds are beautiful. We so enjoyed just relaxing on the back porch.
    Beth, we only had a few minutes to talk with you but we knew in those few minutes why Spencer calls you his “sweetheart”. You really are a thoughtful sweetheart.
    Spencer, I was just a little disappointed when I came down for breakfast and you weren’t singing! Haha…But you redeemed yourself with wonderful songs after breakfast. Thank you for that amazing breakfast. Karl is still going over how to recreate those dishes you served us! We so appreciated having the time to chat with you and learn more about the history of the Manor and the unique antiques you have furnished your home with. You were the perfect host and we had a great time chatting with you.
    Your home is filled with love and peace and anyone entering those doors will feel it immediately. So happy my daughter Jenn told us about this gem. It made our birthday trip absolutely perfect!! We’ll see you again in the Fall. Sincerely, Kathy & Karl

  2. Nick and Cristina says

    Dear Beth and Spencer,
    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality during our recent stay. From the made-from-scratch breakfasts to being your guinea pigs in the afternoon trying out new recipe ideas, we felt very much at home at Stone Manor. You are such gracious hosts and we look forward to staying with you again the next time we go wine tasting in Loudon County to refill our wine rack at home.

    Nick and Cristina, Virginia Beach

  3. Ken says

    Beth and Spencer,

    Thank you for being such gracious hosts this past weekend. You handled my spur of the moment requests and ideas so well and made our first stay at your place feel so welcome and so comfortable. My sweetheart and I loved the Turret Suite, it was spectacular. As I said, this was our first time, but we will be back and be regulars as we tour the wineries.

    Again, Thank you so much,
    Karen & Ken, Reston

  4. Shannon says

    Spencer and Beth are incredibly humble and hospitable people! We stayed at the house in July for our anniversary. Shortly after arriving, we left for dinner and were hit by a deer. My husband’s windshield was shattered. They were such gracious hosts! They gave us a ride to our anniversary dinner since our car wasn’t drivable. The helped clean up our car and allowed us to stay till 3 pm the next day until we could get a ride! They continuously checked in with us, making sure we didn’t need anything. They even made us lunch while we were waiting for our ride. I would enthusiastically reccomend their home for the perfect getaway and amazing hospitality! Spencer and Beth, we are so grateful for your kindness and care for us as guests in your home! You are incredible hosts and we can tell that you love your work and the people you serve! We hope to visit again!

    Thank you for everything!
    Jon and Shannon Behnke

    Beth and Spencer,

    Thank You!
