With an unmatched mountain view, off the beaten path - what could be better! Made the years fade away!

We really enjoyed our stay with Helen and James. They were the excellent hosts and we really enjoyed chatting with them over breakfast. The room was great and the view of the Shenandoah Valley is the best I've ever seen!

Wasn't quite the best fit for out plans -- which had changed recently, so we never got to really take best advantage of this B&B - one of which is outdoor activities. On the other hand the owners are fantastic as are the rooms. Good location if you are going to both Staunton and Harrisonburg as we were on this trip

Great secluded location; Grottoes is a quiet small town. Very easy access to hiking and all sites near the I-81 and I-64 intersection. Hosts Jim and Helen are a delight, and very accommodating. Rooms are very nicely appointed, each with a private "mini-deck". After visiting many small B&B bathrooms, you will find this one modern and perfectly spacious. Hot tub is an ideal way to end the day, and refrigerator stocked with water is a very nice touch. Great place!

Tucked away just out of the town of Grottoes, High Laurel is the perfect headquarters for sightseeing, winery-hopping or enjoying the attractions of Staunton or Charlottesville. The rooms are quiet, spacious and secluded, and most of the attractions, Skyline Drive, Staunton restaurants, the Blackfriar, etc., are all within an easy drive. For pilots looking for a fun weekend cross-country, High Laurel is 10 minutes from Shenandoah Regional (SHD). Jim and Helen are gracious and attentive hosts, and were wonderful about adjusting for dietary needs. Visiting High Laurel is like staying with friends, and they made our 27th wedding anniversary a wonderful weekend. Thanks to you both, and we'll be back!!!!
