"By far, THE BEST B&B I have been too. Kathleen was so warm and welcoming. Although we were only there for two nights, I felt like I had been staying there forever. Beautiful home, amazing food and just the best hospitality. I felt like I was leaving my new BFF when we had to head back home.
We will be returning and it will be sooner rather than later!"

The Mountain Laurel Inn has it all. Historic location, ambiance, yummy breakfast, charming innkeepers, spacious and well-kept rooms, free wifi, salt water pool (towels provided) and beautiful grounds. Having stayed at other B&B's in Damascus, this will be my first choice on my next visit due to the attention to details. The house has been a family run business for 18 years, and the love and care they put into their labor of love is evident. They really want to share their house and Damascus with my family, so we would have an amazing trip. I especially appreciated Kathleen's willingness to work within my dietary restrictions to create a first rate breakfast."

"The Mountain Laurel Inn is such a special place. A grand 19th Century house set back from the road in a grove of mature trees. A nostalgic wrap around porch with rocking chairs and flower pots. Kathleen met us with a smile and a heart warming message from home. Ornate American Chestnut crafted wall panels and an eclectic collection of art and objects from generations of world travels fill the large, yet welcoming house. Quiet, comfortable, private space for guests to enjoy. Bright, airy porches and common areas. Warm conversation and hospitality in the perfect doses. Abundant and delicious food prepared with expertise and care! Kathleen and Drew are masters of their craft. Anyone fortunate enough to stay with them at the Mountain Laurel Inn will be better for it."

"You won't find a more beautiful place to stay in Damascus. This B&B is over the top! From the gorgeous, beautifully maintained 100+year old house, to the amenities provided, topped off with the most hospitable hosts in the area, our stay here was perfection.
Kathleen and her mother Nathalie are such gracious hosts, and fabulous cooks, they think of everything they can to make your stay wonderful.
They knew that I was coming down to meet my boyfriend who is thru hiking the AT, and they did everything possible to make his days off the trail truly restful and relaxing. I can't thank them enough for taking care of him, and me! God bless you ladies, and Drew too!
