Stay at The Storefront

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

With Christmas days away and so much talk of holiday travel, it makes me think back to our road trip taken 2 years ago this week from GA to CT. Jim and I opted to drive the 15+ hours, in part to get away from the craziness of airports but to also have the ability to bring back with us some larger items from my parent's home. We left on the 23rd and drove 8 hours from Atlanta to the Blue Ridge Mountains area of Virginia, allowing us to bypass the hectic I-95 corridor. As an alternate to spending the night at a typical roadside hotel, before we left town, I had researched a couple of smaller spots to stay. We settled on making a reservation at The Storefront in Staunton, VA. If you should find yourself on the same travel route, I highly recommend booking a stay.

The Storefront is a quaint old 2 story building located right in the heart of town, walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The exterior of the building retains its classic architecture, but the interior has been renovated with a contemporary feel. You enter right off the street into a small living area with TV and a bar (stocked with complimentary drinks & snacks). There is also a bathroom on the 1st floor. Up the staircase, you'll find a full kitchen, 2nd bath, and queen bedroom. The space is very clean and particular attention is paid to offering eco-friendly soaps & detergents (W/D provided) and recycled paper products. Breakfast at one of the 2 nearby cafes is included in the daily rate. We walked across the street and had breakfast (and picked up provisions for the road) at Cranberry's Grocery & Eatery.
