Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Larry, a native Washingtonian grew up in the Maryland suburbs and worked for many top organizations including years at Marriott executive headquarters. The hospitality business came natural to me. I took the leap to go back to Culinary School, and wanted to put my skills to work in a business that was fitting to my personality. Since moving to Luray I have been working with many of the top Inns, Bed and Breakfast, and Spas in Little Washington and Luray, Virginia. Janine, a world traveler and a native New Zealander came to the Washington area over 15 years ago. She works in a top law firm in Washington, and spends her weekends in the Shenandoah. Always up for the adventure of travel and her love of great wines is a wealth of information on both in the Shenandoah and around the world.

Why the Owner Chose Luray, VA, USA:
This little house in the heart of Luray had so many redeeming qualities, and we just loved it. The house was centrally located to everything in the area. We loved cabins, but found them a little too isolated. We wanted to find things to do after a day at the vineyards, in the mountains or on the river. It was perfect for having a great evening out at one of the local restaurants or events and could easily walk back being just minutes away. The house offered a perfect mix of country and town. Our goal was to bring amenities to the house that we sorely wanted while we were traveling. A place to relax, a place to enjoy with friends, and a place we could enjoy together. We hope that you will find that here and that you will love it too.
