Great stay! Susan was there upon arrival and had great suggestions for the area. Beautiful apartment in the center of town. Can't beat the location. Looking forward to coming back
The Bard's Nest was charming, comfortable, and perfectly located for the American Shakespeare Center, downtown shops, and restaurants. Susan was a terrific host and really made us feel welcomed. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.
Susan is truly a nice host. Thoughtful, prompt, and professional.
The location was immaculately clean and well arranged. It was safe and quiet despite being right in the heart of downtown Staunton. It boasted amenities that I have never experienced before such as heated bathroom tiles.
Literally right across the street is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at (Zynodoa) and a block away, just around the corner is one of the best theaters I have ever stepped foot in (American Shakespeare Center / Blackfriar's Theater).
I would not recommend any other lodging for anyone looking to visit Staunton.
So nice to meet you!
Susan has a great place here -- couldn't be more convenient to the great things Staunton has to offer downtown. Literally steps from the world-class Blackfriars Theatre, and just as close to some excellent restaurants, bookstores, and other shops. The Nest is extremely clean, well-furnished, and comfortable, with heated floors and other amenities you don't often find in this category. We'll be back.
Susan provided an excellent accommodation once again for our second stay at The Bard's Nest in two years. The space is a great place to rest and relax after a day watching Shakespeare and exploring the developing culinary talent across Staunton! We appreciate the kitchen, living room, and bedroom -- making it far more comfortable than a hotel. The room gets a little cold in mid-winter, but a few minutes of running the two units and space heater (and heated bathroom floor!) more than makes up for the minor inconvenience. We loved our stay and would definitely come again!
Susan made my first experience booking with airbnb a very pleasant one! She was very prompt at responding and her husband, Steve, was very friendly when we met.
The Bard's Nest exceeded my expectations! I booked one night as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend, despite the fact that we both live in downtown Staunton, for a night away from home. It's the perfect location! Right in the middle of downtown, steps away from incredible restaurants, bars, and entertainment. The decor is lovely and cozy, the cleanliness and spaciousness was impressive, and everything we needed for our stay was provided. Though we only stayed one night this would be perfect for a longer stay as The Bard's Nest includes a washer/dryer, full kitchen with cookware and kitchen necessities, and full bathroom with toiletries (the heated bathroom floors are awesome!)
Our experience was so wonderful that we will certainly be booking with Susan again and very much look forward to future stays at The Bard's Nest!!
P.s.- Check out Susan's boutique Pretty Pretty while visiting! :)
Susan met us at the property when we arrived in town and the Bard's Nest is better than described! The apartment is very clean and has everything you'll need for a stay in Staunton. The location is perfect, the amenities are excellent, and Susan's recommendations on restaurants in the area were exactly what we were looking for. The heated floors in the bathroom and washer/dryer were nice extras. The Bard's Nest is definitely a "home away from home" in Staunton.
We love staying at the Bard's Nest. This is our third visit. The Bard's Nest is the most comfortable, well-appointed and interestingly decorated little apartment. It's only an hour from home, but it feels like an escape into a hipper, quieter, character-filled alternate reality. Staying at the Bard's Nest and having dinner at the nearby Shack (excellent service) was a memorable, rejuvenating experience.
Upon our arrival, we were met and greeted by out host, Susan, and given a tour of the apartment. She showed us how to operate the heating system, where the lights switches were, etc. My husband and I were very impressed with its convenient location, all the amenities of home, and its cleanliness. It was so nice to get there and be able to have a cup of coffee or tea which Susan provided for you. The apartment is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Susan is very accommodating and we would not hesitate to come back to The Bard's Nest.
Lovely stay ... cozy, exactly as pictured! Right in the middle of Staunton, with close proximity to fine dining and artsy shops. Thanks Susan!
Great guests !
Susan and her husband, Steve, were delightful guests. They were very communicative regarding their arrival and departure times, respectful of the space, and a genuine joy to talk to. We loved hosting them and they are welcome back anytime.
