Milling About visits Acorn Hill Lodge in Lynchburg, Virginia. Driving up the path you're greeted by a family of Shih Tzus, followed by their jovial smiling owners Wanda and Robert Crocker. A great couple, their relationship began in 1992 with a chance meeting at Valley View Mall in Roanoke.

Nineteen years ago they bought what was to become Acorn Hill Lodge, a 1910 home sitting on five acres. Intending it as a medical massage therapy center, the lure of a B&B was hard to resist. Plus hospitality runs in Robert's family as his grandmother had a boarding house in Brooklyn. A former hospital worker specializing in massage therapy and a talent for construction, he rebuilt the lodge and spa from the ground up.

Accented with acorns everywhere, there are 11 suites with a European flair as Wanda was a former nuclear energist who spent time abroad. Wanda and Robert urge New Yorkers to visit as it's a short train ride away. During hurricane Sandy 16 dogs and 35 people did just that!
