“Top B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I can only repeat what the recent reviews have already said.
Donna is a fabulous host, from the minute we arrived until we departed after her fabulous breakfast she couldn't have done more for us.
The rooms are super and the whole house is tastefully decorated.
If you want a plain motel , fine but if you want to visit Luray and experience some tasteful unique accommodation, stay at Woodruff House.

I can't say enough about our stay. The house is beautiful and full of charm. It is located within 5 minutes if the caverns and truly is within walking distance of downtown. Donna is a wonderful hostess and her breakfast is amazing. Everything was clean and offered more than expected!

The Woodruff House B&B is an amazing place! The rooms are all different and each has its own personality. The innkeeper was absolutely wonderful; she made us feel so welcome and offered ideas and suggestions for dinner. She even has menus from some of the local restaurants. But as amazing as all this was…breakfast was nothing short of spectacular! Everything from fresh fruit to omelets, sausage, potatoes and … a huge cinnamon bun. I will definitely stay there again.

Woodruff House was very nice! HUGE tub for my super-tall spouse to take a luxurious bath; very comfortable bed for us. Donna was also very very sweet and cooked us a huge breakfast with local eggs and bacon.

Only caution: restaurants in Luray close early, so make plans accordingly.

This was our first B&B experience, so all I knew was from movies and whatnot, and Woodruff House surpased all of our expectations. Donna was super friendly and gave some very good suggestions on local foods and activities. She made us feel at home, inviting us to make full use of the multiple lounge areas both in and outside of the home. She had some local wines to choose from, and we had two bottles (honestly, a little pricey, but for the convienence of it being right downstairs, well worth it.) There are also some board games in the sitting room, which added a sence of home for us. We stayed in the Dorthy Loft above the kitchen and were greeted by the smell of bacon in the morning (always a beautiful thing to awake to.) The breakfast was Amazing. Ask for the stuffed strawberry shortcake. There is a nice deck with a hot tub out back, as well as a gazzebo and a quaint garden area. We went to Luray for the caverns and the zoo, and Woodruff House is conviently close to both. Less than a 5 minute drive. If you plan on going to Luray (which is most likely anyone reading this) stay here. Its more than worth the value.

Room Tip: All rooms have jaquzzi tubs, but dorthy's loft is for one, while the rest are for two. Other tha...

stayed here a few weeks ago, the owners (John and Donna) are super nice, and the hot tub and garden area is beautiful...sat back on the deck on a nice spring day, and had some drinks at the outside bar which John recently constructed...again, two thumbs way up!

Woodruff House was easy to find once in Luray, and Donna was very accommodating. She gave us historical background on the house & Luray, and she very kindly purchased turkey sausage for breakfast as my boyfriend does not eat pork. This gesture was greatly appreciated, and the food was excellent! There were also "treats" in the dining room for guest access -- the chocolate chip cookies were yummy. The only change I'd make upon visiting again would be booking a different room--we stayed in Dorothy's Loft as it was the only one available. There's no shower in this room, so you must use the bathroom off the kitchen area. The toilet is under a sharply raked ceiling with a makeshift door, so this was a little hard to use due to our height. Donna told us of renovation plans for this room, which would be a good idea. Overall, this was a good experience and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Preview the individual rooms well ahead of time because they're very different.
