On a recent trip to Virginia, Ann and I spent the night at a B & B in a beautiful setting. The Ward Manor Bed and Breakfast is in Independence, VA, in the far southwest corner of the state. Located in a mountain valley that is quiet, isolated, and scenic, it is a wonderful escape from the rat race.
On the night we were there, a thunderstorm moved in after sunset and lit up the valley with flashes of lightning. It was an unforgettable evening.
The breakfast was great, as was the Southern hospitality. The historic farm house is comfortable and filled with interesting antiques.
Ward Manor is closed in the winter due to the harsh weather – only the two barn cats stay there. Tough cats!
