... have views and lookouts on both sides. Pull into the first campsite Mathews Arm and get a really nice spot. There are warnings everywhere about not feeding animals and bear warnings and we figure SURE,, just like all the hundreds of Moose warning signs on the roads and we never saw one moose! We have lunch and go for a big hike where we go down about 1000 feet in elevation ...
Initially our plan was to come and stay with the lads for a week or so, get the car sorted and get on the road. Our first week was over before we knew it though! Emily's sister Joan was visiting from Boston, and Ian and William were both back our first weekend, so the extended family hit the country club for some tennis / golf / pool action. I've decided I life gold, but only the part where you whack it - the short game rather bores me!
... was in denial, he decided that it must be out of fuel. The tow truck he sent to pick it up an hour later would indicate that he was mistaken! Haha, gotta love second hand car dealers!
A last ditch attempt on the way home, we decided to stop and test drive the old green van outside someones house. We jumped in and headed out the road....and once again just laughed. It was perfect! Felt great from the minute we sat in ...

Everyone realizes what this means…we just rode 10 extra miles for nothing, and Mommy is already on her way to Harpers Ferry. I tell the girls that I am sooooo sorry, but I just made a mistake. I try to spin the positive and tell them that we only rode 5 miles, but that doesn’t go very far. Emma could see that I was upset about my mistake, so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews L'Auberge Provencale Bed and Breakfast Boyce
My wife and I recently returned to L'Auberge Provencale to celebrate our 1st Anniversary after having a perfect, beautiful outdoor wedding and reception here the previous year. We were greeted by Celeste and Terri and shown to our lovely room, decorated in the French country style, with a fireplace and sitting area. The rooms at L'Auberge are immaculate, spacious while being very cozy, and invite you to relax for a nice getaway. Our dinner was absolutely delicious and we marveled at the variety of fresh, seasonal ingredients that went into our appetizers, main course, and desserts. The wait staff provides outstanding service and is very knowledgeable at pairing their extensive wine list with the various entrée selections. Breakfast in the morning was just as scrumptious! Freshly baked croissants, preserves, and we were treated to an amazing quiche. I could go on and on about the food here!! We look forward to returning to L'Auberge Provencale and hope to make it a tradition to celebrate our anniversaries here for years to come.
Dinner was fantastic! The service and quality of the menu and wine are consistant with a typical $300 meal. Breakfast was excellent as well.
Getting away from the NJ/NY area is a must sometimes and we are so thankful we found the perfect spot and soon to become "our place" to go to get away. A few hour drive and your are transported to the French Countryside!
We stayed at L'Auberge Provencale for one night in Sept 05. The room, at $160/night, was nice and homey, with vibrant coral colored walls and lovely high-thread count cotton sheets. A lovely bowl of fruit and two bottles of water were waiting for us in our room. The bathroom was clean but a bit cramped. The room air conditioner was adequate but noisy. Breakfast in the morning was delightful--a creative fruit appetizer followed by a delicious entree. Croissants and breads were excellent. Overall, the room was a good value.
My husband and I stayed at L'Auberge Provencale in July, 2005. Let me start by saying that the dinner we had at the Inn was very good... so, this made up for what was lacking elsewhere; however, I do not think I would return for the night -- perhaps just for dinner. We made the mistake of staying at the Villa -- too far from the Inn. After a meal with wine, the drive back to the Villa on dark country roads is not safe -- there should be a car that takes guests back and forth from the Villa to the main Inn. When we arrived at the Villa, there was nobody around -- we had to call the main Inn after waiting around for 10 minutes. Shortly thereafter a woman appeared -- the housekeeper -- to show us to our room. She asked if we needed anything. My husband told her I was in need of a small snack. She directed us to the Sheetz gas station a mile up the road for a hot dog or hamburger?! The Inn had a nice pool. We were excited to unwind pooliside and enjoy some afternoon sun. Unfortunately, all of the lounge chairs were taken up -- there were 6 of them to accommodate the guests in the three rooms the Inn offers. We let the housekeeper know immediately that there was nowhere to sit ouside. She seemed befuddled and told us that had never come up before and she would check on it for us. We never heard back from her. This was a bit sad as the pool is one of the reasons to stay at the Villa. Obviously, there was a couple at that pool that shouldn't have been there; however, we were never given an explanation. The room we were given was quaint and had a nice view of the pool we couldn't enjoy. This may seem like splitting hairs, but, a pet peeve of mine is cheap toilet paper, and this Inn has it. Come on! Splurge on the toilet paper! We arrived at the main Inn for dinner and were sat immediately. There are three roms in which one may dine. Unfortuately, we were sat in the least appealing of the three rooms -- the front room that is rather drab. If I ever return, I would certainly request to be seated in the "main" dining room that is cheerful and has a very nice ambiance. Lastly, another disappointment was the breakfast. I had stayed at the Inn a few years ago for a wedding and had a breakfast that was very memorable. I was looking forward to another. However, we were served a fruit cup that was not fresh, and then a savory breakfast that was more like a heavy lunch or even a dinner -- mushroom stuffed chicken, and a broccoli and asparagas flan. This did not go well with my coffee. If you decide to visit, stay in the main Inn and make sure you sit in the peach-colored dining room. Although the prices do not compare, if you are looking for the ultimate experience, go to the Inn at Little Washington -- nothing compares!
We chose the L'Auberge for our stopover in May primarily because the food was rated so highly in all the guides (& also on this site). Although our room was beautiful with fruit & goodies etc. the dinner was expensively disappointing; pretty presentation but every dish was 'over ladled' with ingredients to the extent that we began to wonder if the chef had set his staff a competition to see just how many different flavours (complimentary or not) could be incorporated into one dish! And everything was delivered lukewarm in typical French tradition & not one I condone. However the real tragedy was one of the desserts - described as a twice baked chocolate souffle - but in fact resembled an overdone flabby doughnut with a sticky cherry jam base & quite frankly, was inedible. Insult was added to injury as no replacement was offered when I made these comments to our server who admitted that they were having problems with their pastry chef. At $82.00 per head, I expected better.....And certainly we had dined considerably better and more economically in some of Washington's finer establishments.
My husband and I stayed at L'Auberge for our one year anniversary.

My husband, daughter and I stayed at L'Auberge Provencale in October 2003. It was a little farther from DC than we'd anticipated, but then we did hit rush hour traffic. In any case, it was well worth the drive. We were surprised how spacious our room was, and it had a lovely private deck with teak furniture. The suite included the most perfect room for our teenage daughter, with a sleigh bed and built-in window seat. Both rooms had tall ceilings, antique pine furniture and glazed walls, and felt like the south of France. The bathroom was also nice, with a hand-painted tiles, a separate toilet enclosure and steam shower. The whole place was lovely and had a very special quality about it. After driving in from New York, we enjoyed the wonderful welcome tray that awaited us in the room: fruits, crackers, cookies, some great chocolates -- that type of thing. Breakfast was an artfully arranged fruit plate followed by quail. As someone else said, everyone was very friendly and accommodating.
A wonderful Inn for a romantic weekend close to home. Very attractive antique furnished rooms. Absolutely delicious dinner - so, so breakfast but still full from dinner. Everyone very polite and friendly, accommodating staff. All in all a great weekend. I highly recommend L'Auberge.
