  • Ramana and John are really nice folk and the cottage was perfect for a week relaxing and exploring the surrounding area. I would highly recommend here as a place to relax and rewind amid beautiful gardens and plentiful organic vegetables. Close to main roads to explore and shops etc. thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • What a wonderful, relaxing retreat! This cozy carriage house definitely is just like heaven, surrounded by beautiful gardens and the hum of wildlife (birds chirping, bees buzzing, even rabbits nibbling!). Don't be put off by this location being somewhat residential, it feels like you are in a secluded, private getaway. Thanks Ramana and John for a much needed vacation, and for all of the lovely plants from your garden! We can't wait to come back.

  • My husband and I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. When we were within a block or two of the location, we thought we may have made a mistake. I was a little nervous because Tod had really wanted to be in the mountains, but had agreed to the Carriage House when I had been lured to it by all the pictures of the garden on airbnb. But as we drove through the hedges at the entrance, we began to see beautiful informal gardens all around us. Our hosts, Ramana and John greeted us and led us to the Carriage House. Every inch of the house is charming and immaculate - so tastefully decorated and refurbished. Our hosts had provided us with so many lovely touches from lovely fresh flowers, a homemade card, organic fresh fruit and coffee and more. John and Ramana then took us on a tour of all the gardens on the ground, welcoming us to return to them and to sample the many fragrant herbs throughout our stay. They made it very clear that we could call on them for any needs or questions, although they seemed to have covered everything and everything worked so smoothly.
    They gave us great tips for visits into historic Winchester which we really enjoyed. There are plenty of wonderful shops and restaurants.
    The bed was very comfortable with very cozy linens and the bathroom was lovely and had everything we needed including a shelf to place all our toiletries.
    Ramana and John's commitment to the environment was evident in a variety of ways both inside and outside.
    We spent the majority of our time on the screened-in porch - a perfect place to relax, enjoy the beautiful zen garden right outside or watch the birds bathing in the bird bath, squirrels scampering around or a humming bird feeding on the roses. When it got dark, we were delighted by an artificial butterfly (fiber optic?) that continually changed colors throughout the night.
    Both when we met people in Winchester and when we returned home to DC, we have been telling everyone about our stay at the Just Like Heaven Carriage House and we feel confident we will return to it again. Tod had no regrets about not staying in a mountain cabin!

Toward The One Sacred Ceremonies, Orchard Hill Healing Center & Tea House for the Soul
-I have been in the healing arts field for over 25 years, and enjoy helping others feel better through massage, CranioSacral therapy and Yoga. It has been a blessing for me to live in the small town of Winchester, Virginia in a 1920's era house on a lot of over 2 acres. The Guest House on the property was originally a carriage house, which my husband and I converted to a tranquil place for guests to stay among beautiful zen gardens and flowers. While the setting is country, one is literally minutes from historic Old Town, restaurants and sight seeing spots.
