This B and B is in rustic area outside Luray with lots of farmland and unspoiled views. I found the hosts very gracious but somewhat inflexible with regards to food. As a lifelong weight watcher, I was keen to go on long hikes and eat healthy food. The hosts take pride, rightfully so, in their sumptuous breakfasts. Everything is very high in sugar and fat: a typical breakfast contained granola yogurt parfait, banana bread and pumpkin cream cheese French toast. When I asked for some egg whites on the side, I got a funny look and was basically told "no". The rooms are smallish, and one has a bathroom that requires crossing a public stairway. That said, this is a lovely location, and if you don't mind unhealthful food, it's a great place. Personally I'd prefer plainer dietary options. Because I was limited in what I ate, I had to go out for a second breakfast so I could make it on long hikes.
