Hawksbill Greenway, the Speakeasy at Mimslyn, and Skyline Drive. A beautiful B&B in a delightful setting.

Awesome experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mayneview Bed and Breakfast! The managers made us comfortable and the breakfast was out of this world delicious! What I like best was the view of the mountains. We sat in rockers on the porch and just looked at the mountains. It is quiet and relaxing and beautiful. You will not be disappointed.

Looked forward to staying at a B & B. It looked great online and had good reviews. However, the furniture and decor was mismatched and the housekeeping was not up to par. The "king" bed was two twins pushed together with a hump between them. Felt uncomfortable as the owners, who we didn't meet, did not live there and no staff was on site at night. This was the first B & B that I had to make the bed myself. Breakfast was good but had to wait until 8:30 for it. The view of the Blue Ridge mountains was awesome. The MayneView B & B has a lot of potential, but it is not there yet. L Nash

Innkeeper Response
We're sorry these guests' stay did not meet their expectations. However, most of their concerns were actually either addressed at check-in or could have been addressed by viewing our website. They were told about the 8:30-10 breakfast time as well as the innkeepers living off-site a few minutes away. They declined the innkeepers offer to refresh their beds in the morning. The twin beds were not simply pushed together as they are securely attached with cushioning in between to create a comfortable king bed. The furniture in our B&B is typical of older Victorian homes and thus is not intended to match. After 10years of inn keeping experience and subsequent record of 4.5 out 5 reviews we believe this guests experience is an exception to what most guests experience.

Historic B&B

4.4 on May 20, 2015

I enjoyed my stay, only complaint would be not enough bright lights in the room, but it is a historic B&B!

Comfortable and cozy, but expected better for the price

3.2 on May 18, 2015

Pros: Location is great for attractions in Luray. Staff is pleasant and kid friendly. Rooms are spacious, the suite on the top floor is comfortable for a family to stay. The view is beautiful and the late check-in was easy. They will accommodate special dietary needs for breakfast. The house feels cozy, like staying with a relative instead of a sterile hotel atmosphere. Cons: The hot tub smelled really strong of mildew - still can't get the smell out of my bathing suit. The rooms could use a deep cleaning, most surfaces were clean, but things like the window sills, molding and the bathroom floor needed a good wipe down. Although the breakfast was good, It was items that I would make at home, I don't think much was made from scratch, more of a heat and serve kind of breakfast. I would expect better quality of food for a bnb in this price range.

Innkeeper Response
We'd like to thank this guest for their review of our accommodations as we are always seeking ways to make our guests' experience as pleasant as possible. The remarks about the cleanliness of the room and the condition of the hot tub have been passed on to those responsible for those areas and they have been addressed. Our breakfasts have consistently received positive comments so this guests' experience is an exception.

Heaven on the hill

Loved the Mayneview B&B. The rooms were great, breakfast was excellent, and sitting in the hot tub on top of the hill overlooking Luray Va. Was the very best part. Good cookies too!

Charming B&B

4.8 on March 27, 2015

This was the first time my sisters and I stayed at a B&B. I wanted to go to Luray Caverns (it had been about 25 years since the last time I went) and I found the Mayneview B&B online. It was a wonderful experience! My sisters and I stayed on the top floor in the Huguenot Knight Suite. Donna was there to greet us and take us around the place. The house has tons of character, charm and great views. We stayed for 2 nights and each breakfast was very tasty and plentiful with fruits, eggs, bacon, Belgium waffles, French toast, eggs, juice and coffee. Everyone was very friendly and helpful suggesting places to see and places to eat. If you go, I suggest dinner at MOK N SHES Restaurant - great food and service. The Luray Caverns are spectacular and go see the Luray Rescue Zoo. It will be an unexpected treat! The owners are very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions and tell the story behind the animals. I would not hesitate to recommend the Mayneview to friends and family.

nice getaway

My husband and I really enjoyed our long weekend stay in Luray, VA at the Mayneview B&B. The Luray Caverns is awesome to see. The accommodations, cleanliness, intereaction with the Donna (owner) and the food were great! We had the 3rd floor suite which was really nice. One minor thing is that the jetted tub takes way too long to fill. The hot water runs a lot slower that the cold.Overall, I would highly recommend this B&B!

Excellent vacation

Paul and Sally were wonderful hosts. They were very helpful at suggesting hikes along Skyline Drive, nearby restaurants (there were surprisingly good options in Luray!), and things to do. The breakfasts were buffet style and were excellent. They provided some interesting options beyond your typical scrambled eggs, and always included excellent vegetarian options. The room was nice and cozy, and the house was quiet at night. It was really nice to have the hot tub available too, the view over the town up to the mountains was quite nice. All in all an excellent vacation, and we'd highly recommend Mayneview!

A weekend of beauty and relaxation!

4.8 on January 22, 2015

The staff were professional, friendly and very helpful. The house is beautiful and filled with history. There are so many rooms (quiet sitting room, media room, our own well apportioned bedroom/bathroom), we were able to find our own space even though we were there with relatives and other guests. The food was fabulous! Delicious breakfast, coffee on early, snacks available when we arrived, and little chocolates available everywhere we turned. The mountain view is perfect. I rose early and watched the sunrise every morning while others slept but everyone enjoyed it at some point. We chose this B&B as a halfway meeting point so no one would need to travel more than 4 hours, but it was more than we had dreamed of. This was a luxurious and relaxing weekend away with family while being served by caring staff. We do plan to return and would highly recommend this home to anyone!
