About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Quiet Location, Mountain Views, Great For Biking or Hiking.

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

Gorgeous views, enjoyed the hot tub. Good location to explore Luray, Front Royal, and Winchester. We took our ATVs to Edingburg Gap/Traskers Gap/ Potter's Mill Run and had a wonderful experience.

Perfect cottage for fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was excellent with all the amenities you need. The place was clean and spacious for our family with the grandparents. The owners had wood ready for us to use in the firepit and the jacuzzi was a hit with my son. The location was awesome close to shops in Luray and Shenandoah park. The quite open field in a country setting with a barn made it feel relaxing, peaceful, and scenic. The train, which came one or twice a day was not really an issue in making loud noise and was exciting for my son. The owner, Gerald was responsive and called to see if we needed anything else during our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and would probably bring extra pot if you are planning to cook. All in all our stay is great. I would recommend the cottage for any family or couples. We will certainly come back.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with some friends for the weekend. The house is very nice. The train can be loud, but definitely adds to the experience! It is a perfect getaway from the city, close to Luray and Shenandoah Park. The hot tub feels amazing after a long hike. The owners are accessible if there are any problems or questions, but otherwise do not interfere. There is a full kitchen - we made dinner and had all of the tools we needed. Highly recommend.

Shenandoah National Park hiking trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two year old pup stayed here while we explored SNP. The house is very comfortable and clean. We found everything we needed down to the bug spray. The trains that others mentioned were not a problem for us. A train whistle is a lullaby to me as I lived my first three years about ten feet from the tracks. The laundry facilities were convenient and the hot tub welcome after a long day of hiking. Our pup loved the yard for play. The farm scenery is beautiful. Gerald was helpful but not intrusive. We would highly recommend this convenient location for park visitors.

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.
