We purchased an overnight stay on Groupon. The Inn was nice and relatively well maintained. The front desk staff is very helpful. This is a good location if you want to visit Luray Caverns. The only negative is the restaurant wait staff. We thought our waitress for dinner was not great and the breakfast service was very slow.

We stay here during a 7 day road trip from New York thru Gettysburg, Luray, Montecello, Williamsburg and back to NY. This was our 3rd B an B and it was just terrific! Staff was great and the hotel was beautiful. Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed just relaxing there. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

We stayed at this hotel in October 2013 for a long weekend. The rooms were very efficient and comfortable. A little historic charm, but we had a Groupon so our room was very simple with no bells and whistles. The atmosphere on the front porch was great! You could sit on any number of benches or rocking chairs, and there... More

The hotel is very picturesque and a beautiful restoration. Our room was very homey and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and also helpful at all times. We traveled with another couple and really enjoyed a cocktail hour outside on the front deck overlooking parts of the town of Luray and the mountains. The food was reasonable in the Speakeasy...

Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Rooms were pretty nice, ours had a fireplace and tv. Bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub which was kind of gross, we turned the jets on and brown chunks game out, as if water and who knows what else sat in there forever. We didn't get to enjoy the jets which was disappointing. Overall it... More

What a beautiful place. I would stay there again if visiting the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The dining room was so elegant. My favorite place was on the big front porch sitting on a glider chair overlooking the mountains. It is hands down the best place to stay in Luray.

We stopped here while touring the Shenandoah Valley without a reservation and what a pleasant surprise. The entire staff was so attentive. We were given a nice cornet room with a good view and very well appointed. The garden was so relaxing in a rocking chair with a good glass of bourbon. The front porch offers rockers with a view...

After driving on the Skyline Drive, dusk arrived and we decided to leave the Skyline and find a place to stay overnight. The town we entered, Luray, has a few options that are uninspiring, but then we drove by this lovely inn on a hill that literally and figuratively was above the rest in the vicinity. The Mimslyn Inn may... More

Life at a gracious lower pace awaits the traveler who will venture 15 miles off the interstate. Wonderful front porch with big-fanny rockers... and even meals may be shared on the porch. Food was wonderful, service exemplary... absolutely no complaints. We happened to stay early in the week when the well known restaurant was surprisingly not open for dinner... but... More

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Mimslyn Inn. It is a beautiful historic property. The room (a Blue Ridge Suite) was fantastic - beautifully decorated, comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Staff were very accommodating and wonderful. I loved the grounds and the 3rd floor Skyline Terrace for relaxing. Wonderful, beautiful hotel!!
