My husband, myself and my parents spent 2 nights at the Mountain Laurel Inn over Memorial Day weekend to bike the VA Creeper and catch a show at the Barter Theater. The house itself is full of interesting things and we loved learning about the history of the property from Ms. Nathalie. She is one of the most interesting people... More

Beautiful Inn and grounds. Clean, comfortable, and full of charm! Nathalie, the hostess, is a collector of beautiful things from all over the world! We stayed 2 nights in the sister room and woke to bacon aroma...just beautiful!

Came here for race weekend. Nice find. Natalie was a wonderful hostess with a great history and stories to tell. Good location if you are here for biking, hiking, racing or just want a nice place to visit.

We recently had the pleasure of biking the amazing Virginia creeper trail. Our icing on the cake was our beautiful bed and breakfast. The Mountain Laurel Inn is over 100 years old and filled with beautiful antiques and wood. Very charming, but the beds and baths are comfortable, clean and up to date. Jim and. Nathalie are so gracious and... More

We stayed here with a large group and took up most of the house. The decor is old fashioned, but that's what makes it quaint. There are a lot of interesting pieces and the owners are happy to share stories, but don't hover. Our kids had a lot of fun playing in the back yard. We had two breakfasts, the... More

Our group visited Damascus to ride the Virgina Creeper trail and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. We stayed at the Mountain Laurel Inn for two nights this past weekend. Jim, the owner, greeted our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) when we arrived and gave us a tour of the inn before we settled in to our rooms.... More

We stayed here for our anniversary after biking the Creeper Trail. First problem was that they said we could have Rambo Suite and we paid extra for it b/c supposedly it was "full occupancy." When we got there they said that we were the only ones staying there and that bathroom in Rambo was out of use. The house was... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in June. The hosts are very hospitable and provide a good breakfast. OK to lounge around around during the day, and yes they do have internet. The host has done some singing during his long career, so he will likely serenade you over breakfast. We'd be happy to go there again.

The hosts at the Mountain Laurel Inn are delightful, but the inn is dark, dusty and cluttered with too much stuff. Breakfast was dreadful. We missed the amenities we like at a B&B - ice, microwave and sink in kitchen, afternoon snack, good reading lights. The website makes this inn look like something it is not.
