Perfect Getaway

4.8 on November 02, 2016

Donna was on site when we arrive and showed us to our room and then gave us a tour and brief history about the house. She gave us recommendations for dinner (which were both excellent). Donna was extremely friendly and helpful--she respected out privacy and told us to let her know if we need anything. Breakfast was HUGE and delicious! I didn't need lunch either day we were there! We absolutely loved the jacuzzi tub in our room, but were also very thankful for a separate shower as well. I loved the decor of the room and house--you could feel its history. We will definitely be going back in the near future!

Loved It!!

Valentine's Day at Woodruff House

5 on July 30, 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed at Woodruff House for Valentine's Day this year. It was so romantic and quiet and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic and cozy place to spend the weekend.

Lovely, romantic Inn...

We hike Old Rag each fall, and come from PA. We enjoyed this B&B immensely. The wonderful, kind welcome from Donna, the farm fresh breakfast, our cozy bedroom with whirlpool tub, and the location in downtown Luray. The deck outside was great, too, for some work on the computer. This place fit us just right. We hope to come back!

Country Charm

We stayed at the Woodruff House for a short get a way. What a great time we had. You get the warm welcome and the country charm as soon as you walk in. Breakfast is fantastic and large so make sure you are hungry. We were close to Main Street where all of the shops are at and was able to walk to the local favorite restaurant "The Speak Easy" Everything was perfect

"Amazing Experience at the Woodruff Inn"

Donna at the Woodruff Inn did an amazing job making our trip to Luray special and memorable. She was very accommodating and friendly. The rooftop suite was wonderful! I would definitely recommend the Woodruff Inn to anyone visiting Luray!

Most Romantic Trip of Our Lives !!!"

We were met at the door by Donna, she welcomed us, and was very professional. She cooks a fantastic breakfast and the smell filled our room!! We stayed in the Rooftop Suite at the Woodruff House. The room was quiet, quaint, inviting. Romantic!! We had the jaccuzi, dimmed lights, candles and champagne. We toured Luray, barbbq at Shenandoah. It was the perfect weekend and I recomend to any couple looking to escape to stay here and be spoiled. This by far was the most romantic, beautiful trip we have ever had and the accomodations at the Woodruff House made the difference ! Thank you for an amazing weekend !

We were only there for one night, but it was delightful! The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Our breakfast was huge....eggs, potatoes, sausage, and homemade waffles. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Our DE FACTO B&B for Luray

5 on March 23, 2014

Where can I even begin. My husband booked us for the weekend here so we could visit Luray Caverns but, by our second day, the history of the area and the warmth of our hostess forced me to decide we would be coming back more than just this once. The room, and house, is impeccably laid out and Donna (the hostess) is lively, funny, an awesome cook and wonderful conversationalist. You don't feel like you're at a B&B. You feel like you're visiting a friend for the weekend. She gave us great recommendation for restaurants, provided a fantastic breakfast (seriously, I could give two less craps about calories if it's coming from her kitchen) and was brilliant and charming company. I kind of feel spoiled since any other B&B we stay at will be weighed against the Woodruff. We stayed in the Leisure Suite, made use of the wonderful hot tub after days filled with long walks, and settled down into the peaceful room for reading and watching a bit of Netflix on the laptop. Wi-fi was just another perk on this trip. We're already planning to head back in the fall. The town of Luray has many little spots to stay and I almost don't want to share this place since I want it to be available. LOL! But if you'll be in this area I'd recommend this place without second thought.
