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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Luray

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.

Great stay in a beautiful unit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Garfield Guest House. Larry knows the area really well and was able to provide great advice on local activities and restaurants. The unit itself was clean, updated, and very comfortable. Luray was a great gateway into Shanendoah National Park - would definitely stay again!

Garfield Guest House

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for six nights in the Garfield Guest House. This property is a quality rental. The place is kept in excellent shape and is nicely decorated. Larry checked in during our stay to make sure everything was OK and responded quickly to a couple questions we had. Luray itself is quiet, had the services we needed, and is very convenient to Shenandoah National Park as well as a number of other area attractions.

Great visit at the Garfield Guest House

We had a great visit at the Garfield Guest House. It was very nicely arranged, with a lot of nice amenities. Larry and Janine clearly put a lot of effort and care into the house, which made for a really nice stay. Highly recommended!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

First of all thank you to Larry and Janine for their hospitality they showed us on our first visit. The property was everything Larry and Janine advertised. Very clean, very comfortable and very spacious for a couple getting away. We enjoyed the small town feel of Luray and because of the close proximity to Shenandoah National Park we were able to hike,enjoy beautiful scenery and head back to the house for R&R. Really recommend it and hope to be back real soon.

Adorable, clean suite in a cute town!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cute and located in a convenient spot to walk to town. The suite we stayed in was so clean and perfect for us (one couple). Larry and his wife met us to give us a tour of the suite and recommendations on the town which was so sweet. We would've loved to have stayed longer!
