Nine Loudoun County, Virginia Bed and Breakfast hostelries will be open on Sunday, April 24 for public tours as part of the organization’s annual open house.

Visitors will be able to view the houses and sample attractions offered by some of the county’s top restaurants, caterers, wineries, musicians, florists and artisans.

Not only is the open house free to the public, but many of these Bed and Breakfasts will offer raffles, free overnight stays, gift baskets and many other prizes.

The B&Bs represent a range of accommodation and settings. There will be historic homes with two to three guest rooms, like George’s Mill in Lovettsville and Fieldstone Farm in Hillsboro, and an elegant modern home – the Mews, north of Purcellville.

Simpler buildings include the Cottage at Dunthorpe Farm near Hillsboro, and Airwell B&B, south of Purcellville, which is also artist Lucien Powell’s restored cottage.

Some of the larger historic buildings are represented by Stone Manor and Silverbrook Farm B&B, near Hillsboro, also Briar Patch B&B between Aldie and Middleburg on Rt. 50, and Serene Manor, south of Round Hill.

Many of the participating B&Bs are sought-after wedding and event sites.

The open house brochure includes a map, address for participating B&Bs and a list of all participating wineries, restaurants, caterers, musicians, florists and others who will be part of the open house.
