By the Side of the Road Getaway Lodging was originally established in 1999 as Harrisonburg, Virginia’s first 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. As lodging trends evolve, By the Side of the Road does too. As of June 2022, By the Side of the Road is under new ownership. Jesse and Anna Bergey saw an opportunity to continue the business as Dennis and Janice (Anna’s parents), were ready to step back. They plan to bring new ideas and updates while providing clean, comfortable accommodations to those who visit. Our cozy cottage accommodations, which include all the amenities you expect, have been enhanced to offer amenities that enable guests to prepare light meals during their stay, in line with vacation rental properties in high demand by today’s traveling public.
