International Guests love The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast
We have been fortunate to have hosted guests from around the globe. Most of our international guests have been from Europe and include people from England, France, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands and Spain, but we have also had several from Australia. Some come to visit the wineries, others to explore the outdoors, but the vast majority come because this area is rich in history to include Appomattox Courthouse, the site where our Civil War ended almost 150 years ago.
It’s interesting to get a different perspective on life in the US from those who are visiting from different countries. Things that we seldom think about intrigue some of our guests, such as how inexpensive our gas is, how big our cars are, how wide our highways are or the interesting bugs and insects we have. Of course ever once in a while politics come up or other serious topics.
One thing we have started doing when we have guests from different countries is flying their flag. Everyone has loved pulling into our driveway and seeing their country’s flag. Recently the stays of a family from England and a couple from Italy overlapped and we had their two flags flying (above photo).
Typically we have two American Flags but if you drive by and you see one or more flags from different countries, you know we have international guests staying with us. When you do see our two American Flags, one is our current flag (it has 50 stars) and the other one is the flag that would have been flown when this home was completed in 1878 (it has 38 stars).
If you will be visiting this this country, or if you are already here, consider booking at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast. The area is rich in history and there is so much to see and do. Don’t make the mistake many of our guests do and book a two or three night stay, we can keep you busy for at least a week. Give us a call at 434.846.1388 or book on line.
