Old Mine Cottage is outfitted with quite a few amenities that will make your stay very enjoyable! A 5 person hot tub is always a hit with younger and older guests alike, and for a perfectly relaxing experience, the outdoor fire pit is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, golfing, or however you choose to spend your time in Luray! The kitchen is beautifully designed and comes complete with every appliance needed, including a dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer on site as well for those who wish to use them. Every few hours the train comes through, and the property is just the right distance from the tracks for it to be charming. There is a brand new TV in the living room, with a DirecTV package, and a DVD player. The inside of the cottage has a very rustic feel to it. Everything is completely new, but was carefully crafted to feel very comfortable and unique. The property sits at a convenient location to get to, with only a 10 minute drive to nearly everything you could need to do.

About Gerald Dovel
We have lived in Luray, VA our entire lives, and have always loved it here. My wife and I both hold public positions; her with page county schools and myself with the page county health department. 20 years ago after our home was paid for I bought our first monthly rental property on High Street in downtown Luray. It was a big investment, and lots of long nights after work were spent there to bring it into the condition I wanted, but it turned out great. A lot has changed since then, and 1 monthly rental property has turned into 26. Two years ago we decided to expand our horizons and move into more than just monthly rentals, which ultimately led to Old Mine Cottage. It took a two year process to get to today, but the result is a gorgeous property that is ready to be utilized. As we continue to grow in the business world we invite you to come and stay with us. Let us know how we did. We think you will be impressed.
Gerald Dovel purchased this Cottage in 2012

Very nice, relaxing, quiet environment.
The cottage was great. It had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the hot tub. Gerald was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed.
I thought that this was a beautiful piece of land with everything that we needed for a nice weekend getaway! The hot tub and fire pit were our favorite parts! Thank you to Gerald for a great stay and checking to make sure our stay was perfect!
We enjoyed the peaceful countryside and the wildlife that visited the yard. Great access to town and Skyline Drive.
Our little cabin near Shenandoah - easy access to park, hiking, & caves
Very responsive owner. Cabin was clean, awesomely stocked with literally everything we could need - shampoo, oil for cooking, COFFEE!, games, cornhole game in backyard, firewood for fire ring, etc. They exceeded my expectations! It is on farmland so you might see tractors, smell farm smells, see cows in the distance, and there is a train nearby. Husband heard train in early morning, I did not hear it. We really enjoyed our time. Quiet, private, & close to the Shenandoah trails which brought us there. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends and family!
Great place we really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful and the people are friendly
We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was charming sourrounded by mountain views and fields. The deck made for beautiful star gazing and the hot tub was fantastic after long day hikes. The location to town and the park entrance was great as well. Overall my only complaint was that we didn’t get to stay longer. 🙂
Beautiful secluded cottage
We came here for a week while visiting in the Shenandoah Valley. The cottage is beautiful and well made. The wood work is neat and cozy. The central air was wonderful as we came during the 90 degree weather! And the hot tub was very relaxing! We also experienced some awesome thunderstorms during our stay and enjoyed watching the wildlife. I personally loved the trains passing by. Go see the caverns if you're here, you won't regret it!
My cons were the dead bugs and dust piles in the corners. Also when I cleaned the toilet before we left it was very dirty and was obviously not all from our stay. So a little more housecleaning prior to another visit would be great.
An FYI for others, there isn't many different pots and pans, cookware, or measuring cups and spoons to use so I had to be creative.
Overall It was a wonderful vacation and I'm very thankful we stayed here.
Old Mine Cottage is less than three miles from the main highway, (US-211) yet it is a world away from the norm. If you want a quiet setting with beautiful views, Old Mine Cottage will more than meet your needs. We are located close to the downtown area of Luray, with its' quaint shopping, restaurants, and the iconic 'Pink' movie theater. We are within 10 miles of a wide variety of activities, such as Yogi Bear's Jellystone park, which provides mini-golf, an arcade for kids, and a water slide. The Caverns Country club is a very short drive up US-211 and provides a beautiful and competitive challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The Luray Caverns are a 5 mile drive away and are a world famous, must see attraction. If you like to bike you will find miles of paved country roads with very little traffic. If you like to hike there are miles of trails close by. If doing nothing sounds good you will be more than happy at the cottage as well! You can relax on the decks, enjoy the hot tub, the fire pit, the ten acres of property or the cottage itself. We bought the property in 2012 and have carefully returned it to the time period of its construction. It has been a labor of love and we believe that you will love it too. We welcome you to come and experience it.
