Day 5, Charlotte to Baltimore drive

A travel blog entry by rmadventures

We left Charlotte around 8am with our shortest drive yet, ~7 hours if straight through. The drive up I77 has been beautiful through the mountains but the kids had a rough morning, they were probably tired. We stopped for lunch in Roanoke Virginia and checked out the second biggest man made star and a great overlook of Roanoke valley! Afternoon has been better and less than 160 miles to Baltimore! So far 1610 miles + (we started the odometer in Brenham, TX) and 9 ...

The Poker Game

A travel blog entry by debandbets

Ryan has a once a month poker game with several guy friends and it was his turn to host it. It was held in the big tree house that he built. Since he knows that Betsy plays Texas Hold'em on occasion, he asked her to join them. They have a local rule that the game goes until one person has finally won all the chips. I think the buy-in was $10 or 20 dollars. Betsy said that the men were very solicitous, patiently telling her about big and little blinds and all the ...

This hike also had a momma bear and her cub. We had an extended viewing time of the mom trying to get the cub out of the tree. Finally, she went up, grabbed the cub's tail and pulled it down.

We had a day of recovery and then went on a five mile loop on a Nature Conservancy trail. Wild life on this trail: ...

We toured through the many rooms in the Manor House and skimmed through the document submitted to obtain Virginia Historic Home status. While waiting for more family arrivals, we drove into Charlottesville to checkout the historic area and the University of ...

    Perfect Romantic Getaway

    from

    We enjoyed a lovely mid-week romantic getaway... the inn-keepers provided us with a list of things to do in the area, and we had a wonderful time hiking, and exploring wineries and orchards in the area.

    A Truly Wonderful Inn

    from

    I, and my cousin and her husband, stayed at Orchard House B&B and found it to be so warm and welcoming and spotlessly clean. This was my first experience of staying at a B&B...and, it was at a time of bereavement -- the funeral of my brother. As soon as I drove onto the property, I felt a peace and serenity. The charm of the home with its inviting front porch and secluded, quiet surroundings with large shade trees was a God-send and I stopped and thanked Him for directing me to this comforting retreat. The room I stayed in -- Northern Spy Room with a wall of windows -- was lovely and I enjoyed it. Breakfast food was so-o-o-o-o good and Deb's home-made cookies were heavenly!! But, why I rate Orchard House Inn 'excellent' is because of the owners and innkeepers, Richard and Deb Bulissa, who are easy-going, gracious, attentive and sincere folks whose desire is to make a stay at their Inn a memorable one -- So much so...that you'll want to return again and again and again !!

    Awesome way to forget things

    from

    Me and my wife, never thought to stay at a B&B to attend a funeral. As it turned out God directed us to the Orchard House. As a retired navy sailor, I had my filled of traveling thru Europe and parts of South America in many B&B's. This place is a great and awesome bed and breakfast. I truly believe that a house cannot reach its pinacle of greatness without the people who work,run or take care of. The owners of this bed and breakfast go beyond in making the stay a memorable and fun visit. My wife,her cousin and myself felt very during this time of grief. Richard and Deb made us feel like family. The rooms are exquisitly arranged and clean. The whole house is very tidy and clean. My experience. The house a 10

    A Party to remember

    from

    Having never been to Livingston I was charged with planning a baby shower for my cousin and finding a place to stay for the eight of us that were coming from out of town. The Orchard House could not have been more ideal. The house itself was beautiful and spotless. I got to see all the rooms and each one is airy and bright. The room I stayed had a wall of windows that faced a huge tree (it felt like I was in a tree house).

    Even better than the house itself was the service. Deb and Richard made sure I had any information I needed about the town before and during our stay. We held the shower Sunday afternoon in the dining room. It was the perfect mix of privacy and a helping hand. It truly felt like a family home away from home. I couldn't recommend it any higher.

    We didn't want to leave............

    from

    We were enjoying our stay so well, we wanted to stay a few more days! It was our 10th anniversary and Richard took wonderful care of us. The flowers, the wine, the Saturday afternoon cheese and fruit were more than we imagined when we opted for the lover's package. Bravo!~

    So peaceful, so clean, so wonderful!

    from

    Everything about our stay was so wonderful - I just don't know where to begin! The house and grounds are picturesque and the hosts, Deb and Richard, are so friendly and accommodating. The furnishings are exquisite and the minute you walk through the front door the sweet country scent permeates through the air making you feel so relaxed and 'at home.' Personal touches throughout the home add to the ambience making it very difficult to leave! I LOVED the journals on the night stands for guests to write an entry about their stay. We also loved the hot tub and of course - the breakfast! W@W! I just can't say enough. :o)

    Thank you Deb and Richard for making our 10th anniversary so special and so memorable. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

    A Great Get Away

    from

    Richard and Deb are great Hosts and really made us feel welcome. The Northern Spy room is a wonderful room. Both breakfasts were fantastic. When we wanted to go to a lawn party, they provided us with lawn chairs. This is the place to go to rock on the porch, swing in the yard, or just wander across the rolling lawn. We loved it! Will return as fast as we can.

    If your looking for a great place to stay during UVA football season, this is the place.

    Model B & B

    from

    I have a lot of B & B experience, as a customer and an inn-sitter, and the Orchard House was one of the best experiences I have had! The hosts are so accommodating, whether you want privacy or if you want some social time. They went above and beyond for any requests we had, and even anticipated what might be helpful to us. I am planning another trip to that area just so I can stay there! There is so much variety of things to do in the area, that there is something for everyone: nature-lovers, antiquers, wine-tasters, history, small town or city life. But the hosts Richard and Deb make it what it is; they really know their trade. And the grounds and house can't be beat. Writing this, I really can't wait to return!

    Awesome B&B

    from

    This is the best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at. The owners are nice, the beds and pillows were so comfortable that we didn't want to get up, everything is new and clean, and we enjoyed our time there. There is even bottled water in the hall outside the rooms in case you get thirsty at night. There was a hot tub too! In the morning we came down to a hot breakfast and fresh coffee. We will definately go back the next time we're in the area.

    Peaceful Fall Retreat

    from

    My husband and I visited the Orchard House B&B in November of 2004. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and we couldn't have been more pleased. Upon arriving, we were greeted at the door by the owners and immediatly felt welcomed and at home. Check in was quick and easy. We stayed in the York Imperial room which was absolutly gorgeous! The decor is simple yet beautiful and comfortable. The spacious room was very clean as was the bathroom. A basket of snacks was even set on the bedside for our enjoyment. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. There is a nice pond and walking trails. The covered porch with swing was a nice place to relax. Breakfast was fantastic and served family style in the magnificent dining area. We enjoyed watching the squirrels play in the trees as we ate our breakfast. Richard and Deborah (the owners) take great efforts to pay attention to details and went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Nothing was overlooked! We enjoyed our stay so much we will be returning for a longer visit later this summer. If you wish to stay in a place that is beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing this is the place for you. The owners are wonderful, friendly people and I am certain you will enjoy your stay.
