Step back in time with a stay in the historic, completely renovated Peter Miller house, built in 1802. It is like having the run of your very own Bed and Breakfast in the heart of historic Old Town Winchester, just steps from restaurants, museums, shops, concerts, farmers markets and more! The home has been restored and furnished with antiques and artwork, plus all the modern conveniences.
This home is two blocks from the pedestrian mall which is the heart of Old Town Winchester that featuring many unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, museums, outdoor concerts, and a farmers' market. Also, minutes from George Washington's Headquarters, Shenandoah University, the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, the Discovery Museum and Handley Library.
The home features three full bedrooms on the second floor: one with a king bed, one with a queen bed and one with a full/double bed. There is an additional full/double in large landing area. The kitchen is completely updated and features upgraded appliances and everything you'd need to prepare meals. Also on the first floor is a formal dining room, living room, laundry room and full bath. Step outside and enjoy the bricked patio and fenced backyard. One bedroom features a half-bath and all bedrooms have ample closet space.
Winchester is located at the northern tip of Virginia in the naturally beautiful and historic Shenandoah Valley. The area is known for its important role in the Civil War, as the home of Patsy Cline and the Apple Blossom Festival. There is much to do and see in Winchester and the surrounding area, including lots of hiking, antiquing, and historic exploring. www.oldtownwinchesterva.com
You are close enough to Washington and Baltimore to explore the big cities and return to the house. There are many caverns in the area and Skyline Drive is just minutes away. You are a short drive away to many sights in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia and western Maryland and southern Pennsylvania, including many Civil War sights of significance: Harpers Ferry, Antietam, Gettysburg and more.
Jonathan is a master woodworker/furniture maker and jazz musician. His many talents help us to furnish and restore the home. To see some of his work, google him (The Building Arts Co). He's also runs The Fret Shop at 201 S Braddock St - that repairs, sells and consigns fretted instruments (from guitars to dulcimers.) Justine works for the local public school system helping to support kids and families. Our family loves history and being outdoors - our vacations often feature trips to National Parks and historic sites. We live in a restored farmhouse outside of Winchester with our dog, cats and some chickens.
Justine Beck Rose purchased this house in 2004
We love old historic homes and purchased this house from friends. Although we live in the country, we appreciate the time we spend at this house in Winchester - what a treat to be able to walk to restaurants, parks, concerts or so much more.
Even though you're staying right in the historic district, right 'downtown' the house is quiet and the yard has been described as an oasis.
Really enjoyed our stay -- Winchester was a delightful surprise! The house is great -- nice work! We'll be back.

We had a great time at this beautiful old house. So much room (we all had our favorite places to hide out in :) and every possible item provided making it a true home from home. This was a great base for day trips to the amazing caverns in the area and also for D.C. The homeowners went "above and beyond" to be friendly and helpful. Hope to come back someday and will definately reccommend to others!
We were in the area for a November wedding. Three generations stayed in the home very comfortably, using three bedrooms but not the extra bed in the hallway. We loved having books and a crib available for the two-year old. Being able to walk easily into town was a real plus for us as we had only one car for 7 people.
We stayed here for a week and loved it. We had our family out here for a wedding and it was a perfect location to stay. The house is better than advertised and would stay here again definitely as it had everything you could imagine including great Wi-Fi and Netflix! Not to mention a very completely furnished kitchen. Everything was just spotless. Plenty of spacious room, nearby parking and lots to do and good places to eat in Winchester, VA, a historic town that changed hands over 70 times during the civil war. Owners are great to deal with and good communicators.
My sister and I did our annual extended weekend visit in Winchester this year and were lucky enough to be the guests of Justine and Jonathan Rose in the Peter Miller House. The house was easy to find and there was plenty of parking right outside the door. Justine and Jonathan were very friendly and helpful, both during the booking process and as hosts. The house was sparkling clean and cool when we arrived (It was 86 degrees and humid outside, but really comfortable inside). The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. There were plenty of very clean new looking towels and everything worked well. The house has comfortable furniture and plenty of seating in the large living room.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is 2 blocks south of the Old Town walkway and and easy walk to all the restaurants and shops. We ate at the Union Jack, Brewbakers, Cajun, and the Dancing Goat. Service and food were excellent in all restaurants. Dining is casual and waiters were all friendly. I highly recommend the Peter Miller House and the hospitality of Justine and Jonathan.
We rented this house for a job we had in Winchester for 2 days. It's a neat old historic house with many neat touches. Rustic charm with updated amenities! Fantastic location right in the center of town, only 2 block from the shopping/dining district. Wish we had more time to enjoy it!
This is just a quick note to express how much my family of five adults enjoyed staying in this beautiful historical home! Even though it was established in 1802, it has been renovated with a modern kitchen, etc. The owners were great to us and made our stay very enjoyable. In fact, we liked it so much, that we decided to stay extra night! We are history buffs, and this was a great launching pad to see the sites of Winchester and the upper Shenandoah Valley, as well as places like Antietam National Military Park and Harper's Ferry National Park. Being in the heart of Old Town Winchester meant that were close to history and shopping. We were able to walk to a great Italian restaurant in the close-by Pedestrian Mall. I would highly recommend staying in this home!
