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.
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 30 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. Lots of our guests are so happy to be able to arrive, park their car and walk everywhere they want to go for the entire stary.
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!
A lovely home located near the historical area of Winchester. A wonderful home to spend a couple days relaxing after having spent a busy week before with our 9 year old grandson. We met his mom in Pennsylvania to return him after our visit and Winchester was a nice place to stay a couple of days before returning home. We enjoyed the restaurants and the shops that were close enough to walk to. The weather was very warm so we spent time just hanging out in the home. We enjoyed learning about the history of the home and the old town area. Justine was a pleasure to work with and she had everything clean and ready when we arrived. The house is perfect for a larger group as it has plenty of space and nice bedrooms. I would definitely recommend a stay in this very quaint and historical home. We hope to return sometime in the future.
Perfectly suited for multi-generational family of five adults & one child in state for a wedding. The house was conveniently located to the venue in Old Town, less than half a mile away.
The home had plenty of room to roam and seating areas to relax. Loads of entertainment in books, videos, wifi, Roku, and board games - most of which we enjoyed. Towels were plenty and soft, kitchen decently equipped to cook a meal, frosted mugs in the freezer, dishwasher, washer & dryer should you need it.
Definitely would recommend to others. Communication with the owner pleasant, quick responses, and any situation effectively handled. Thank you, Justine! for sharing your lovely home with us and being such a pleasure to work with.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peter Miller House. There was plenty of room for our family of four. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. It is a 5 minute walk to the Winchester walking mall where you will find numerous shops and restaurants. Winchester is a beautiful city! They have a large supply of VHS tapes, and my teenage daughter and I had fun looking at some of the older movies that she had not seen before. We also played a board game, which they have a number of. One of the days we went horseback riding at the Full Moon Ranch, only a 20 minute drive away in Berryville.
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.
Concerts and musical events at Shenandoah University, Bluemont Concert Series, outdoor concert series by Parks and Recreation. City of Winchester's Parks and Rec department offers several parks are nearby, featuring playgrounds, year- round swimming, sports fields, walking trails. Winchester is Home to the Apple Blossom Festival Each May (special rates apply). The Museum of the Shenanodah Valley and beautiful Glen Burnie Gardens are close by.
