The Inn was a beautiful location, surrounded by Mountain Laurel (in bloom) and mountains. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed the amenities. Breakfast was sub par through, and the room temperature was impossible to control.

We stayed for 2 nights towards the end of October and the views were absolutely fabulous. Each room has its own balcony that looks over the valley and you can get an even better view from the front porch of the main house. In addition to the views, Helen and Jim were great hosts who provided a lot of information about the area and suggestions of places to go and eat and things to do. The breakfasts were delicious and they were accompanied by great conversation. The rooms were large with high ceilings which made the room appear even more spacious. We will definitely go back again!

We were really only looking for a place to stay for the night and we ended up finding a hidden gem and adding to our list of places to come back to. Jim and Helen were fantastic hosts, informative, and very accommodating. The room was very clean and cozy with a great view. We will be back to enjoy a full weekend and all the area has to offer.

Thank you Jim and Helen for a wonderful stay at the High Laurel Inn. We're keen walkers and the B&B is situated on the very edge of Shenandoah National Park so we could start our day walks from the front door of the cabin. The room was very comfortable and the views from the balcony were fantastic. Breakfast was delicious and hearty and set us up nicely for the day's walk. We will certainly be back in the future and will recommend to our friends.

All aspects of our stay were truly outstanding - reservation, welcome, friendliness, the room, the view, the food. We were even late getting gone because of visiting with hosts.
