"Today is our anniversary and it couldn't be better than here at Briar Patch! We've enjoyed our stay very much and hope that the next visitors enjoy themselves as much as we did. As we are city folk, being in the country is a blessing. Lying out at the pool, barbequing in the back, sitting on the front porch, enjoying a trail ride on horseback, and seeing the Aldie Grist Mill is priceless. We thank Briar Patch for giving us a little precious vacation."

What a beautiful, relaxing place!"
