“Great place ... Relaxing...Touring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2010

Hosts Sally and Paul Edwards welcomed us and shared their knowledge of Luray, tourist sites and restaurants, with us. The Mayneview's central location to Civil War sites in the Shenandoah Valley was our main enticement and we discovered that Luray Caverns with its superlative auto and valley-life museums are a definite stop. Restful nights and ample breakfasts with early morning walks around the property made for a very enjoyable stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2009

I visited the Mayne View with my two dogs. The innkeepers were very accommodating to both my traveling companions and my arrival schedule. The Pen Dragon was a charming room with a comfortable bed. We enjoyed the company of the other guests. And breakfast was bountiful and delicious. I just have nothing negative to say about our visit!

I've stayed at some fabulous Victorian B&Bs in Cape May and always mourned the fact that I couldn't enjoy that experience with my dogs. But the Mayne View is wonderful Victorian home with Victorian furnishings and a Victorian feel that not only allows dogs, but welcomes them. It's rare to find a true B&B that allows you to enjoy the relaxed and social vibe that you go to a B&B for, plus allows you to enjoy it with your four-legged babies. We'll be visiting the Mayne View again!

Extra special thanks to Molly the cat who gave up the free reign of her home to allow my dogs to sniff and investigate and enjoy their stay.

We stayed at Mayneview for 2 days. Paul was very friendly and accommodating. Sally was very nice even though we didn't get a chance to talk to her allot. From what I hear, she doesn't really come out and mingle with the guests. She is constantly busy trying to help with the inn and make breakfast in the morning. They have two sons who help out with the inn and are very friendly. The inn has a cat(Molly) Great cat. There are a few stray cats outside also. But they aren’t allowed in the house.

BREAKFAST: Overall the breakfast was nice but a little bit too formal for me. We all came, sat and ate at 9am. The table was set up nicely and Paul served us one course after another. We would have preferred the food laid out for us and we can pick and choose what we like.

PROS:
Owners- nice, friendly and very accommodating.

Location: The inn has a great view, small deck and a hot tub.

CON:
Rooms -
I think the rooms needed to be updated! Especially the bathrooms. We stayed in the
Merlin and it seemed to be bigger than the other rooms. It was a nice room but we
wished the bathroom was just a little cleaner and little bit more updated. One
downside, was that the bathroom only had a tub and toilet. It was a little cramped. The sink was outside in our
room! Some might like that, but we didn't. We would of preferred everything in the
bathroom.

No TV in room: I wished we had a small TV in the room but we didn't. They had a nice TV downstairs but I didn't want to go downstairs at night to watch TV.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and we would recommend this inn. But be warned, don't come with high expectations. Another reviewer said that the room was "perfectly adequate" - he/she was correct.

Mayneview, owner at MayneView Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, November 13, 2009
We appreciate the feedback from the T family as we are always seeking ways to improve our accommodations and service. However, some of the comments made were not appropriate because the family knew in advance that the room was set up for double occupancy and might be a little cramped with rollaways in it to accommodate all family members. They also knew that this room did not have a TV in it and the sink is in the room as the photos on our website clearly indicate the bathroom configuration and other features in the room. Again, thanks to the family for the review. This room will be updated over the winter with TV and newly glazed bath tub. The T family might have chosen our B&B because we are the only one in town that accepts young children.

The owners were very knowledgeable and gave us a brief history of the surroundings as well as points of interest for our visit. It felt like home away from home.

Check in and out was quick and easy. The property was perched up on a hill so the view was nice. There were snacks and beverages available at all times to guests. There were also board games.

There was a hot tub outside but I'm not sure if it was out of commission or if they just didn't want it going that particular weekend. Lots of friendly cats roaming the yard.

We stayed in the Pendragon. There was a king sized bed which consumed much of the room. There was a bathroom in the room which consisted of the toilet and sink. The shower was in the room, not the bathroom, but the bedroom. It did get warm in the room but luckily it cooled off at night so we opened the window to allow some circulation.

Breakfast was good. It was something served in a ramekin and piece of fruit. It was tasty but I'm used to a big, hearty breakfast when I stay at B & Bs.

PS. They have the cutest movie theater in Luray.

The MayneView B&B was an absolute delight. The Edwards are friendly from the moment you enter the yard, and the accommodations are well-kept, comfortable, and beautiful. They extend a level of courteousness beyond the norm, and the perks of staying there include a hot tub, free snacks & drinks, board games, and TV. The Edwards are very personal and invite you into their family during their stay, and were also very accommodating to our dietary restrictions. We loved our room (The Pendragon) and had a great time!
