Nominated-The Inn of the Month

February 16th, 2009 by Mariah

The Stonewall Jackson Inn has been nominated as the Inn of the Month by Mariah Morris CEO of Bed and Breakfast Guide. Please read below some history of the Inn, its Owner and other people’s opinion as too why this Inn should be noticed and appreciated….The Stonewall Jackson Inn, as a (circa 1870) Queen Ann mansion, sits on “Nob Hill” overlooking the Historic District of downtown Harrisonburg. Historically called Rocktown, the city played a central role in the Civil War as it was the supply stand distribution depot for General Lee’s major campaigns. General Stonewall Jackson was on the faculty of the famous Virginia Military Institute, knew the Valley well, and was General Lee’s first choice to be the “Valley’s Defender”. There were 11 assaults on the City, but it was never taken until he was killed. His Headquarters for his brilliant 1863 summer campaign was just outside the city at Elkton. Review’s for The Stonewall Jackson Inn

Rated 5.0: Staying at the Stonewall Jackson Inn is like being at home and being treated like royalty. Wayne Engel, owner, welcomes each guest and goes out of his way to personalize their B & B experience with warmth, humor, good service, and delicious food. Rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious with individual bathrooms, and the sheets are heavenly. We highly recommend the Stonewall Jackson in Harrisonburg, VA. Goodmans Roanoke, VA

Rated 5.0: We’ve stayed at many of Va.’s B&B’s and this was one of our favorites. Just came to the area for snow tubing at nearby Massanutten. We also visited the historic area, which consisted of shops and great restaurants. The Stonewall Jackson was extremely clean(which is a must for me) and the breakfasts were delicious and filling enough to hold us through lunch. We’d highly recommend this to anyone!

Rated 5.0: Enjoyed a two night stay celebrating our anniversary and New Year’s Eve. Breakfast was great both days. Looking forward to returning when the weather is warmer and the grounds are green and flowering.

Rated 5.0: Our recent stay at the Stonewall Jackson Inn located in Harrisonburg, Virginia could not have been better. The Inn was immaculate and our hosts were gracious, helpful, accommodating and in every way eager to please. The breakfast was, indeed, one to remember, but that can be truthfully said of all aspects of our time at the Inn. We highly recommend the Stonewall Jackson Inn and plan to stay there on future overnight visits to Harrisonburg.

Rated 4.5: Absolutely delightful in every way! My college roommate and I were in Harrisonburg for a college reunion and wanted to stay in a charming location. The Stonewall Jackson Inn exceeded our expectations and Innkeepers Wayne and Debbie could not be more welcoming. Wayne is a fabulous cook and we loved the breakfasts both mornings. The Belle Boyd room was perfect for us with beautiful antique furniture and two marvelously comfortable beds. It was convenient to both James Madison University and the nearby shops and restaurants of downtown Harrisonburg. I would go back in a minute!
