Welcome to South Court Inn! Spring 2009 was kind to us, just enough rains to keep plants growing and no late frosts and the garden really put on a show for us. We picked this photo not just because of the flower display, but because it also gives a good view of how large the house is. Built in 1875 as a farm house on the front of a 400 acre farm, a major renovation 1938-1940 saw it gain even more rooms, a sun room, the wrap-around porch and a brick veneer. Two parlors combined to make the 15x30 foot living room, the dining room expanded to 18x23 feet and two full baths upstairs made it an exceptionally luxurious house, well ahead of its times. Come visit today and enjoy the gardens and the grand refurbished interiors as part of you elegant getaway here in Luray, in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley...only two hours from Washington but a whole world of less stress and slower paced life away.
This is the Ruby Room. It is elegant and quite Victorian with a unique four post bed and canopy! We've upgraded this, our largest private bathroom with a 6-foot 2-person whirlpool tub, new lighting and décor. There is no shower in this room; just a great big whirlpool tub for the two of you to enjoy! The tub is set in a candlelit nook and invites guests to take a lingering soak before afternoon massages.
The Turquoise Room.
This is our largest and most sumptuous bedroom…one especially designed for a special getaway! It features a King size bed and the largest room we offer. Simultaneous 'Couples' massage is available in this room. It is on the main floor as well so there are no stairs to climb and you are always only a few steps from the popular Sun Room along with a variety of snacks and the ever-ready Keurig!
Mary Kennard Room
Featuring a King Canopy Bed, Electric Fireplace, Seating Nook and Shower for One...or for Two Very Good Friends!
The Edith Hayes Room
Edith Hayes has jumped from the 19th to the 21st century. She now sports a one-person whirlpool tub with shower! That makes this room a must for newlyweds or romantics wanting to celebrate in elegance and style! Imagine moving from the whirlpool tub directly to the massage table for a relaxing in-room massage.
The Susie Hodges Cottage is a delightful country cottage in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley!

This photo shows the 200 feet of lawn between the cottage and the garden pavilion. Guests who choose the cottage enjoy the reverse view from the private patio and pergola at the back of the cottage. Elopement, wedding and vows renewal couples can enjoy the privacy of a separate cottage all day and then join everyone for breakfast in the main house, seen here to the left of the cottage, each morning.
Roses, Godiva chocolate and spa gift box invite you to use the Susie Hodges Cottage whirlpool tub as often and any time you'd like. The 4-room private cottage invites couples wanting total privacy, but still wanting the B&B experience.

Spring is a great time for elopement and private weddings and vows renewal ceremonies in the garden, or for just a tet-a-tet for the two of you. Daffodils are just breaking the ground right now, but 3,000 will be waving hello by mid-March. Come and enjoy!
