Please note first that all reviews prior to 2013 are for the previous Owner's not the current Owner's! We had a couples weekend in November 2016 and decided to stay at a Bed & Breakfast. We chose this B & B because of it's proximity to Luray Caverns and the wonderful reviews we read. The cottage we stayed in was clean and quaint. There were some issues we noticed right off though that were a little concerning. There was a pile of gas cans and propane tanks in a pile next to where we parked. Also most of the light bulbs were out in the ceiling fan, bar soap already opened and used on the bathroom sink, moldy toilet and shower. In the breakfast area there were 2 croissants and a cinnamon bun wrapped in plastic, along with a few bottles of water, a banana, and an apple. We were not sure what to make of this. When our friends showed up who were staying in the other cottage we went with them to check out their cottage. Dust/Dirt on the ceiling fan at least an 1/2 inch thick. Everything in their refrigerator was expired. (My friend e-mailed the Owner about this after our weekend and the Owner actually accused my friend of putting the expired food in the refrigerator, we have this all in writing from the Owner). Friday Morning arrives and we are expecting a breakfast basket or an invite to the main house for breakfast. None comes. My husband called the Owner, no answer so he left a message. After we ate breakfast at the diner down the road (absolutely delicious by the way) my husband received a text message from the Owner stating that she was in the middle of making bake goods for her restaurant and she had planned to bring some down to us that evening. Never happened. She also left a message on my husband's voice mail stating that they no longer serve breakfast and they stopped that about a year ago. What they do offer is a continental breakfast that they bring to your door each morning. Although the website clearly states that you have a choice of a breakfast in the main house or a continental breakfast delivered to your door. Also encouraged us to go to the restaurant she owned for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and we would receive a 15% discount. Huh? We are already spending $150 a night at a B & B that does not serve breakfast! Saturday morning a little after 10:00 the Owner did come to our cottage with a basket of baked goods (looked like doughnut holes from Dunkin doughnuts and some grocery bought buns of some kind, along with 2 smoothies in styrofoam cups. My husband thought the smoothies were delicious! My husband did confront Mary about the website saying they serve breakfast in the house and she apologized and has since(after our stay) had the website redone to no longer include the house breakfast. We asked her about why we did not receive Breakfast Friday morning since we did arrive Thursday evening and she stated the 2 croissants, bottled water, apple, banana, and cinnamon bun left in our cottage wrapped in plastic Thursday evening was our Friday morning breakfast. After the baskets were delivered to my friends and us we were getting ready to go on some more adventures when my friend notifies me there was a bug crawling through her food in the basket under the plastic wrap! EWWWW!!!! If you are looking for just a little cottage to sleep in without the breakfast this is ok. But if you are looking for a real Bed and Breakfast keep looking!
