My husband and I stayed at Laurel Lodge for our 36th wedding anniversary in July. The beautifully restored house holds many interesting stories, which innkeeper Chris is happy to share with you. The house even smells like my grandmother's house, very comforting, evoking pleasant memories. Every room in the house is stately. The house itself is perched overlooking the Shenandoah River, and there are aspects of the river that elicit even more stories. Chris and Ed are wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming. There are so many homey and helpful touches to be found from the very particular appointments in the lodging rooms, to the music books stacked on the piano bench in the living room, lots of information on the area, and so much more. And the breakfasts! They are unparalleled in quality, fresh ingredients, and uniqueness. Chris and Ed make it a point to use local produce, fruits, honey and even bacon in their morning offerings. Our stay at Laurel Lodge was perfect, and we hope to return.
