The Inn itself is comfortable, especially considering the history it has, and the hospitality is unparalleled. We stayed in the Autumn room, which had a private entrance that we loved. The room itself was more than adequate and had the historic ambiance we were looking for. The breakfast is EXCELLENT! Anne, the innkeeper is very caring and accommodating and was... More

Had the choice of two different rooms...one in the inn and one in the house in the back. The suite in the small cottage in the back of the property was perfect, but it didn't have wifi. It was modern with a small kitchen and a large deck. We chose the room in the inn because of the availability of... More

We stayed there two nights. There were six of us. Conveniently located so you can get to the Luray Caverns within a few minutes and even the distance to the Shenanadoah Park entrance is not terribly far. The Inn itself is comfortable and the hospitality is great. The breakfast is EXCELLENT! Anne, the innkeeper is very caring and accommodating. Celeste,... More

The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was reasonable (choice of eggs Benedict or eggs Florentine), but the room was old-fashioned and you're likely to have trouble sleeping at night. The pillows were so uncomfortable that my wife tried sleeping without one. A light switch in the bathroom also turns on a particularly noisy fan. If you're used to... More

Clean and welcoming. 15min drive to Mary's Rock, a 2.5h hike that's a great Shenandoah immersion. Located on Main St allows for leisurely walks to shops, restaurants and bars. Would stay there again any time.

Anne, Celeste and Larry were wonderful. Rooms were extremely clean and felt very homey. Jacuzzi in all the rooms. Breakfast was delicious and they specially made food for me because I was lactose intolerant, I was very appreciative of this special touch. Location is a short walk from downtown, Luray caverns and trails. Loved it.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It was the perfect place after spending a day in hectic DC. Ann is a lovely innkeeper. She contacted us before to ask about any dietary restrictions we might have. This told me that they are very tuned to guest needs. Breakfast was delicious. The most airy waffles you can imagine...

I booked the willow room. It looked nice in the pictures but was much different when I got there. There was no headboard on the bed. No beautiful quilt the antique night stands were replaced with old painted yard sale tables. The bedside lamps were different too.The nice upholstered chair in the pic was also missing.IT WAS NOT THE ROOM... More
