We visited this charming hotel as part of their annual "Oysterfest" weekend package. Oysters in Luray?? Absolutely and some of the best we've had! The gracious staff was warm and accommodations wonderful. The room was a tad on the small side, but the great view, efficient layout, really comfortable bed and beautiful mountain view more than made up for that....

Enjoyed another amazing stay at the Mimslyn Inn. For all the times we have been there I realized I haven't reviewed this place. This is a very charming inn, renovated with modern conveniences but maintaining the original charm. There is so much history at this Inn that was built under the direction of a woman, during the depression era, on...

First recognize that the Shenandoah Valley, in midweek mid-January, is very quiet. So was our two-night stay at this classy older inn. Okay, so the Mimslyn is dead, as is the town of Luray, but it's still a fine hotel with an attentive staff and excellent restaurant, the Speakeasy Inn, downstairs. Rooms are comfy, and offseason rates are affordable. Without...

So charming and comfortable... the Mimslyn was nothing short of spectacular! Our weekend of wine tasting with friends was unforgettable... we stayed in the newly renovated Manor House that had enough space to comfortably sleep 16 people, a giant kitchen with snacks waiting for us on arrival, multiple fireplaces and plenty of parking. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and...

This is a great Inn: clean, comfortable, with a great staff. It was recommended by a local and it was everything they said it would be. I could have done without the same Frank Sinatra recording being played over and over during breakfast but that is a minor complaint when all is considered. The staff didn't know how to change...

We had a ladies weekend getaway at the Manor House recently and it was nothing short of exemplary. The service was more than I could ask for. Steve was very attentive and always made sure we had what we needed. Beautiful property and everything you need is on site. I will definitely be coming back!

The Mimslyn Inn is a quiet three story hotel with all the amenities and a wonderful dining room with gracious staff. Located in "downtown" Luray, it is convenient to the Luray Caverns and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a health club and outdoor swimming pole.
