Many travelers and many shared stories and memories are just a couple of reasons Harvey and Elise continue to accept bookings for their 1700’s bed and breakfast.

Desires and Skills

Their combined interests, skills and desires to restore and maintain this historical lodging, which they also call home, is there crowning jewel.

Their earlier achievements include renovating the family home in Montgomery County, Maryland, and construction of a A-Frame cabin as a weekend retreat in the mountains of West Virginia. Their daughters will vouch that there was no road to carry those 2′ x 6′x 12′ up the mountain, pure physical effort was required - preferable without any sass!

Currently, the Altergott’s are restoring/renovating another home referred to as ‘JoAnn’s’ since purchasing the property from the estate of their good friend, JoAnn Ferrell (image on the right).

Functional Artisans

Determination and lots of hard labor are not the only strengths of the Altergotts. Elise’s natural artistic abilities and exceptional eye for details brings together rather typical or usual items to combine them into beautiful and exceptional creations.

36 Years of History & Hospitality

Throughout the years, Elise and Harvey have welcomed people into their home and shared their 1700’s property with passing travelers. Perhaps the doors to the Inn may close one day, but their hearts and minds will always be open to those who pass through Vienna.

It was a good day when Elise and Harvey Altergott found Vienna when just taking the road only to see where it would go.
