The House on Water Street, Sperryville

Your private vacation getaway in SperryvilleMy girlfriend (now fiancee) and I stayed at this spacious converted farmhouse, www.thehouseonwaterstreet.com,  while touring the Rappahannock wine country. We instantly fell in love with the house and wished we lived there! Moreover, Barbara bent over backwards to make the weekend as perfect as possible, arranging for a chauffeured tour to a great sampling of local wineries. We always felt that Barbara had our own comfort in mind.

We also hired a local Provencal chef, Sylvie from Laughing Duck: www.laughingduckgardens.com - for a personalized, private dinner with a custom wine list. The entire weekend was a magical experience that made us want to leave the city for Sperryville!

Given the size of the house, we look forward to enlisting our friends for a weekend of hiking, horse-riding, dining, and wining! (We also recommend wandering around the stores of Sperryville and “Little Washington,” picking up local cheese to accompany charcuterie for an oenophile’s dream night.

As for restaurants, Thornton River Grille provides delicious dishes, an impressive list of drinks, and friendly service. (The Inn at Little Washington is our next target.)
