My boyfriend Mike and I stayed on Friday (10/26) and Saturday night (10/27) in a Blue Ridge suite (Room 303). This was our first visit. We really enjoyed our stay! Being from DC, we loved that there was free parking. We had the prix fixed dinner at Circa '31 with the wine tasting. The server (Stephanie?) and the guy who kept my water glass filled were great. We really enjoyed our entrees (duck and the butternut squash risotto) and pumpkin cheesecake. After dinner, we explored the inn a bit, walking around, then ended up in the Terrace Room. My boyfriend said he wanted to go back to room for a jacket before exploring the balcony area off of the Terrace Room and I went with him then he PROPOSED!!!!! Later, he told me that we had so much fun at dinner and having an enjoyable evening in general that he decided to propose that night instead of Saturday while on Skyline Drive. The rest of the stay was fantastic with great service. Our meal at Speakeasy wasn't anything special but we liked the convenience of having it downstairs. There was a wedding taking place on Saturday, which raised our interest in having our own wedding at Mimslyn Inn. We'll definitely be back and, who knows, perhaps for our wedding.
Room 303 is in the front and looks out at the town. We really enjoyed the tub with jets and big win...
