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!

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...

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...
