I took my 9 year old to the Inn for a night to help celebrate her birthday and have some fun one-on-one time with her. The staff at the Inn made everything very special for us, in every way! Besides being a gorgeous place to stay, the people at the Inn made it a truly memorable and fun experience for...

Nearing arrival through the town of Luray we wondered if the Mimslyn Inn could possibly look as grand as the photos we had seen. Before us upon a hill stood the grand looking beautiful building with the winding driveway entrance. It was beautifully landscaped but I was sad to see that although there was a wedding in progress the potted...

Spent one night here, and that was enough. While the place looks nice from the outside, and the lobby, when we got to our room we found it so loaded with furnishings we could barely move around! A King bed (in a room too small for a King bed), an oversized cabinet (for the TV etc.), a chair with ottoman,...

12 of us met at The Mimslyn Inn for my Mother's 89th Birthday. 6 of us from Northern VA, and 6 of us from Staunton. Luray is a nice mid-point. Met there at 10:30 last Sunday for the Champagne Brunch. The entire experience was delightful. The staff was/were very gracious. The views were wonderful, and the food was excellent. A...

Contrary to previous reviews read, we chose to gaze out our window to the mountain vistas which had to have been best in Luray. We've stayed in plenty of grand ole places and this place met all expectations. Nicely appointed room, comfy bed, wonderful spots to sit inside and out in the main entrance atea and enjoy the feel that...

Pros 1. The hotel staff was friendly, genuine, and polite. 2. The hammocks are lovely Cons: 1. The rooms could have been a lot cleaner - there were stray hairs in the bathroom when we arrived. 2. The bed was smaller than a queen (either a double or full - not ideal for a romantic weekend). 3. The "gym" is...

We (family of three) had booked 2 nights over the weekend at the Mimslynn, coming from a more urban region and hoping for nature, history and mostly fresh air! The area around the hotel is surprisingly unspectacular, if not quite run down. Then we saw the Inn on the hill and indeed had high hopes seeing it standing there. Inside...

We have been here before and as usual, enjoyed our stay very much. The ambiance is both very comfortable and elegant. It is a historic property, with lovely grounds to explore. This trip we discovered the lovely garden area in the back with a few hammocks and rockers under the trees. It was the perfect place to relax in the...
