We headed to Luray on a whim with no reservations, saw The Mimslyn and immediately fell in love. Situated on small hill, it is lovely to look at and has a great view. Although the room is smallish (particularly with king bed) as it is an historical inn, it was very comfortable and well-equipped. All the staff are attentive, helpful...

The Hotel is exquisite and the view is outstanding and memorable. This is somewhere I will always come back to. Rooms were lovely with a nice view. Everyone at the hotel was more than willing to help you. We had Crystal for our wine tasting experience and she was wonderful and answered all our questions. The other employees most helpful...

I held a Surprise Party for my husband's 60th. this past weekend in the Blue Ridge Room. I can't say enough about the staff, the food, the beautiful room.....Sherri ( & Jessica :) ) were extremely helpful in the planning & implementing of the evening. Always cheerful - they gave some good ideas - right down to "where" to surprise...

Approaching and entering the beautiful Mimslyn, you're tempted to look around for Jay Gatsby. The period building and decor is lush and inviting, with a pianist playing the grand piano in the lobby every evening adding a classy touch. The lobby staff is friendly, though the staff in the two restaurants tend to make themselves scarce. Our standard room was...

We stayed at this hotel last week for a friend's wedding. The couple had reserved the hotel including its banquet facilities, for their ceremony. The food was good. The setting is quaint. The building is lovely though a bit worn (some chipped paint in our room, thin walls making it easy to hear neighbors, etc). The hotel staff was very...

Mimslyn Inn is located top of small hill & is impressive as you drive up the curving drive. Nicely landscaped, nice views of surrounding area. Lobby area is beautiful with "Gone with the Wind" staircases cascading into the lobby. Main dining room is off the lobby. we were there with "Groupon" coupons that included $10 discount on dinner. but restaurant...

Perfect for a weekend romantic retreat! My girlfriend and I checked in on Friday afternoon and left on Saturday. She told me a hundred times how much she loved the place and that she will remember it for her whole life. And also the main course of the dinner was "the best steak she's ever had". No wonder they apparently...

We stayed one Saturday night at the Inn, basically because both lodges in Shenandoah park were full. We got the last room at the Mimslyn, too so you can see how popular this area is during the fall. The Mimslyn is beautiful. It's small but everything is really lovely. Our room was nice. We had two double beds, which we...
