Great stay and great host

Recently, my husband and I stayed at the Woodruff House when we were in town for a wedding. Donna was a wonderful and thoughtful hostess. She made a great breakfast in the morning and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway

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

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

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 !
