We decided to spend a few days in Luray so we could go hiking in the Shenandoah mountains and visit the Luray Caverns. A huge snow storm was predicted one day prior to our arrival and were concerned we may have had to cancel our trip. Several days prior to our check in, Mike emailed us with the option to cancel our reservation with a FULL refund if we chose not to come. He kept us updated on the weather conditions (predicted 6-12" of snow on Wed) and indicated we had until Thursday 3 PM to cancel without penalty. The day after the storm, he emailed us again and indicated the roads were clear and the Inn had power. To say the least, we were very impressed with Mike's personal attention to our situation.
We stayed in the Turquise Room which is located on the first floor by the front porch. In the warmer months privacy may be an issue because the wrap around porch has extensive seating and looks directly into this room. The room was a nice size and although the bed has a beautiful canopy top, it was very dusty and needs to be cleaned. The rest of the room was spotless. In the common areas, we enjoyed reading on the sun porch and warming our feet in front of the fireplace. The breakfast was excellent and the coffee was superb!
Unfortunately, we were unable to do much hiking in the higher elevations because Skyline Drive was closed, but Luray Caverns was really fun. We will definately go back to hike those trails and we will stay at the South Court Inn!
