The Cottage at Ravens Roost Farm
Ranked #7 of 14 Luray B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 April 2013

We visited during the beginning of March, where snow still blanketed the fields. Betsy was extremely thoughtful in emailing us ahead of time to let us know to bring boots for our weekend stay. The view was stunningly beautiful when we pulled up to Ravens Roost Farm. Edgar was great showing us around, and Betsy left us the most amazing breakfast treats for the morning! They were also very welcoming for vegetarian/vegan food preferences, and the food was absolutely delicious and so fresh. We tried to visit the Shennandoah Skyline Drive, but instead ended up doing the wine tour loop, which we found in the tour guides Betsy put in the Cottage. Our stay was extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. We loved the Cottage at Ravens Roost Farm and would not only recommend it to others, but will definitely be visiting again soon!

This is a lovely property, and the space is cleverly laid out so you have everything you need. We thought the breakfasts were wonderful, and it was nice to have them any time we want. The hosts were very nice, and we enjoyed the area - hiked each day in Shenandoah National Park (about 10 miles away from the entrance), and had multiple options for dinner in Luray. Just drive up and down Main Street, and you will find good places. The Cottage is a great place.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Cottage at Ravens Roost Farm. It is so helpful to me the Innkeeper to know what people think so that I know if there is something else I need to do to make my guests comfortable. It is also nice for new potential guests to see how folks felt about their stay. Have a great Spring!

The Cottage is a great place for a weekend getaway. Betsy and Ed are friendly hosts and the cottage is very comfortable and clean and in a beautiful area. Breakfast is delicious and on your own schedule. We look forward to returning soon.

We had an amazing weekend at The Cottage. The cottage is amazing and perfect for a couple looking to get some rest and relaxation. The views were spectacular. If you love the outdoors, this is an ideal location for exploring near by hiking trails. The town of Luray is also super quaint and neat. Can't speak highly enough about our experience.

Beautifully situated, and exactly as pictured. Perfect for an overnight or weekend getaway for two. Lots of animal friends, a stunning view, a comfy bed, a hot tub... what else could you ask for? We will definitely be back.

This cottage as billed as a B&B and the bed was sooo comfy and the breakfasts that Betsy provided were delicious and very filling. Betsy brings the food over the evening before and just leaves it in the fridge and you can help yourself when you are ready the next morning. My husband and I would eat what we wanted and then either take the rest for lunch or eat it for dinner at some other point. This is a great couples location, but could probably accommodate one child too. There are several websites with cottage photos and they are an accurate reflection of what we found...in fact, things were probably BETTER than we saw on line.

Ed and Betsy were so nice and we enjoyed sitting with them watching the sunset over the mountains. They have a historic farm where the cottage is located--the cottage is a revamped meat house!--- and Ed gave us a great walking tour of the barn and surroundings. These guys are so nice and will give you as much "space" as you want while you are on their property. Dogs, horses, chickens & cats are all there for your viewing pleasure too. Betsy has some great landscaping items and the plants and garden were just getting started when we visited in mid-May.

Everything you could need is in the cottage and the location for day trips is great. We went to Manassas one day and explored some Civil War battle sites, took a drive on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park the next day and then went over to New Market and saw a Civil War Reenactment the next day (THE SOUTH WON!). I am a part time photographer so everywhere we went was a photo opp as far as I was concerned.

The town of Luray has every modern convenience so you know that means a dang Walmart.....but my point is the cottage is only a few miles from town so don't feel like you have to bring everything with you.

From central SC the drive is about 7 hours, but we left on Wednesday and the traffic was not a problem driving up and only a little heavier driving back on Sunday. This is definitely a location we will visit again.

The Cottage at Raven's Roost offers a unique approach to the B&B experience. Located on a farm with exceptional views in every direction, it is a extremely well appointed studio cottage. Betsy and Ed are warm and inviting. The Farm has a civil war history and is an interesting spot to hang out. Ed offered us "free range" to look about the place. It currently is home to friendly dogs, cats, roosters, chickens and horses. We came to see Luray Cavern's but I left feeling that the cottage and Raven's Roost were indeed a destination of its own!
I say that Betsy's breakfasts were incredible. She brings you food to stock your fridge and our breakfasts were so bountiful that we didn't eat lunch either day. In fact I ended up taking some of her homemade bread into work the following Monday. She provides both a hot meal that you can heat up in the oven, fresh fruits, and her homemade breads. I popped a dish in the oven and went out to enjoy the farm to return to a delicious homemade meal. Russ chose to remain in the luxurious king sized bed.
Sunday morning I fed the horses some carrots and apples. They were instantly my pals and proceeded to follow me about the farm behind their fence but ever present. This was an exceptional weekend getaway!
Thanks for everything Betsy and Ed we hope to see you again in the spring
