Pack Like a Pro

Packing a bag takes skill. To many people it can be a work of art. Utilizing space and being spot-on about what items to include can take years to perfect. Below are a few tricks of the trade to help you become a Master Packer!

Consider the weather and what kinds of activities you’ll be doing: Visit weather-related sites to check out how the weather will be at your destination. Ski trip? Pack thermal underwear, wool socks, ski clothes and ski goggles. Beach-bound? Pack a swimsuit, sandals, hat and sunglasses.

Buy travel-size containers for your toiletries: You can always drop into a local shop to restock if you run out. Seal up containers in airtight plastic bags to prevent contents from leaking into your suitcase.

Coordinate your wardrobe with pieces that mix and match: Choose 2-3 color schemes (neutrals are always a safe bet) so each item can work with more than one outfit. Dress in layers so you can adapt to changing temperature.

Call the hotel prior to leaving home to inquire about items that come with the room (hair dryer, iron, robe, etc.): Otherwise, pack travel-sized items. If you’re heading overseas, don’t forget to bring the right plug adapter.

Pack clothing using the “roll” technique: Lay two or three items on top of one another, smooth out and then roll them up like you would a sleeping bag. This saves space and helps prevent wrinkles. Always zip zippers and button buttons.

Organize your suitcase: Place your garments in the order in which you plan to wear the items. Wrap breakable items, like jewelry or glass, in socks and tuck inside the shoes in your luggage. Fill corners and edges with shoes and other cumbersome items. Top off with lighter items.

History of the Bed & Breakfast

The Bed & Breakfast was originally built in 1880 and served as a private residence to Dr. Cunningham, who later served as President of the college (1887-1897) which at that time was called the Female State Normal School.

The house was later purchased by the University for the president, Dr. Jarman, and served as the home of Longwood Presidents until 1969. In 1969, President Dr. Willett moved his family to the current presidential home, Longwood House.

The house then became work space for the Alumni Office and later transitioned into overnight accommodations for faculty/staff, alumni, parents, and friends of the university.

Today it is known as the Longwood Bed & Breakfast open to the public to use and enjoy.

Jarman Room

This is the only bedroom located on the first floor and is the most handicap accessible with a private bathroom.

Dr. Joseph L. Jarman served as president of the university and lived in the house from 1902-1946.

The room features an elegant, hand carved, mahogany furniture set that is crowned by the canopied full bed. On the wall of the room is a painting of Mrs. Jarman, the wife of the former college president resident of the house. This room also has a private bath.
