By the Side of the Road Getaway Lodging was originally established in 1999 as Harrisonburg, Virginia’s first OFFICIAL bed and breakfast business. Founders Dennis and Janice Fitzgerald wrote the City Ordinance that defined the services of a fine B&B establishment in the region.
Now, By the Side of the Road is once again leading the way to 21st century vacation lodging as Harrisonburg, Virginia’s first OFFICIAL Getaway Lodging accommodations. Our original City Ordinance now references “short-term rental” rather than simply “bed and breakfast,” and we are on board! Our luxurious cottage accommodations, which include all the luxurious amenities you expect, have been enhanced to also offer mini kitchens, enabling guests to prepare light meals during their stay, in line with vacation rental properties in high demand by today’s traveling public.
A minimum two-night getaway or longer vacation rental is now available and affordable at By the Side of the Road Getaway Lodging. This award-winning lodging business, with twenty-years of successful operation, will maintain its five-star level of service in its new identity. Dennis and Janice Fitzgerald welcome you to be their guests now and in many return visits in the future.

We spent our honeymoon in this romantic cozy little cottage. The bed was warm and so comfortable. The fireplace and Jacuzzi was awesome. It is a rustic cottage with all the modern conveniences. The owners were so easy to work with and made our stay the very best. The details to comfort and romance were perfect. It is only 10 minutes to beautiful downtown Harrisonburg which has some great places to eat. Massanutten Resort is only a short 20 minute drive away. We drove to the top of the mountain which had great views and then went to the spa for a massage and facial. Massanutten is a four season resort so you can enjoy it year round. Bryce Resort is only about 45 minutes away which is also very nice. I loved our stay and will book it again for our 1st anniversary! I highly recommend this place. They also have a large manor and several other cottage on the property as well.
