Sweet Dreams

4.4 on November 24, 2015

We made this last minute reservation so we could attend a local wedding. This was a perfect stop for us. The room was clean and sweetly decorated. Breakfast was delicious, right before we made time to hike Skyline Drive. The owner kindly mailed me the scarf I left in the dining room. Sadly, we did not have time to enjoy the hot tub with the great mountain views. Next time!


Great Time

My girlfriend and I decided to head to Luray for the weekend to see the caverns. We stumbled upon this place online and booked a room. The service was outstanding and the suite we reserved was amazing as well. Breakfast was buffet style since all the rooms were booked but that did not degrade the quality of the food and service. The B&B overlooks the town and is a great place to stay. If ever we visit Luray again, we will surely book here.


Best home away from home!

What an amazing stay this was! Much less expensive than most in Luray and centralized to all major attractions. Staff was very friendly and most helpful. Breakfast was very good and quite filling. Overall this was the best experience with a bed and breakfast that my girlfriend and I have had. Would definitely return in the future!


Good place to stay on short notice

3.0 on November 03, 2015

Everything was good. No "WOW", but it was all nice. Rooms were ok, didn't like the tub with a plastic liner around it, made me feel like I was in a horror movie... Bed creaked, pillows flat. Owner/manager lives off site. Breakfast not all together with others, which I liked, didn't feel pressured to get up as early. Traveled on short notice, so didn't have a lot of options, but was still a nice place to stay.


Wonderful stay at the Mayneview Cottage

4.6 on October 22, 2015

We had a lovely time at the Mayneview Cottage - in fact it exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, clean, filled with anything you could need (pots, pans, towels, space warmers, etc.), and had a beautiful view. We especially loved that we could bring our dog for the weekend instead of having to leave him with a sitter. He, too, loved to be able to run around in the open yard and then snuggle up on his pillow by the heater on the brisk October mornings we were there. Donna was friendly and welcoming when we arrived. We expected that we wouldn't be provided with any food, as we were not staying at the main house, but we were pleasantly surprised to find coffee, creamer and sugar available for us to use. And there were plenty of dining options available close by. Overall, we loved our stay and even talked about our next visit to Luray and Mayneview before we even left. You won't be disappointed.


Shenandoah Valley gem

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.


Disappointed

1.8 on May 29, 2015

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.
