Bed and Breakfast...

This week was my spring break...hard to believe it's almost over! Thursday was also Lew's last day working at Covenant Life Church (he starts his new job at CSA as a Content Analyst on Monday....prayers appreciated!) Either way Friday was a day off for both of us so we left Thursday night for good old West Virginia to a bed and breakfast called the Carriage Inn by the recommendation of my brother Jeremy and his wife Rachel. It was so wonderful! The innkeepers are a very sweet husband and wife, and are truly the best hosts I have every encountered. The husband Donn was a pastor for many years and then they came upon this opportunity to run The Carriage Inn and him and his wife Marie have been doing so since 2004.

The Inn has a lot of history behind it. You can find out more about it on the website, but it's been around since 1836. We stayed in the Garden View room where apparently Ulysses S. Grant had stayed. It was a nice relaxing get away for a night, but unfortunately due to the yucky weather outside we decided not to stay during the day on Friday because most of what there is to do down there is outdoors. But we plan to return soon. For those who are interested we highly recommend it for a romantic get away! It was affordable and so worth it. The food was great and the room was very large (but still cozy) with a nice fireplace. There are lots of good restaurants nearby but we chose to go to Three Onions in Shepherdstown, we also recommend that...the food was great! So, the only pictures we really got to take were of our room...but here ya go!
