About Judy K. Peabody

Owner Judy Peabody was born and raised on the Peabody family farm in Upstate New York. As an adult, she was privileged to enjoy many years living in the deep south before relocating to the east coast. A spontaneous family vacation brought Judy to the Shenandoah Valley. Her love for the Valley kept her coming back. Years later it became Judy's full-time home.

Judy uses her love for reuse/recycle to convert her already lovely home into a relaxing oasis she has welcomed many. Often she has given out keys to share what she refers t as a gift. There is no doubt this home is uniquely blessed.

As a multi-degreed professional in the D.C. area, Judy most previously worked in the insurance industry as an employer advocate. The travel on the east coast giving presentations to many offered the opportunity for Judy to meet many people and have wonderful experiences. This year when "blessed" with a layoff, Judy used her time and talents to put together this unique oasis to fulfill a dream she was encouraged to pursue for quite some time. Judy hopes many will get to visit Luray and enjoy her VA Green Travel Leader Award Winning 5-Star Rated B&B full of sunshine!

Judy K. Peabody purchased this house in 2014

Why Judy K. Peabody chose Luray

The path to this property for Judy was a smooth one blessed with many twists and turns. In 2012, having made the decision to find a temporary and part-time place in Luray to spend long weekends, Judy began the pursuit of a home. With a visit to "Shenandoah Moon" on Mother's Day set the pace. On this ladies' weekend the road to the East Main Street home was found. In 2014, upon prompting from the awesome owner (for whom without I would not be here today), Judy made the decision to buy this sunny oasis and closed July 1, 2014.

What makes this house unique

"Warm" and "inviting" is how it is described by others. From the instant you walk in, you will see the uniqueness of the environment and the views of the little town and it's mountains. I guarantee you will fall in love with this special home.

Your SUITE is all yours! ALL of it! For as long as YOU want it! It will be all about YOU! You will not be bothered, except for a tasty breakfast brought to your door unless you buy up to one of our features or need assistance. I promise this will be a fun and relaxing experience to remember.

The "lobby" features "The Unique Boutique" with artist and artisan finds from Maryland and Virginia not duplicated in the area. This came about to help budding entrepreneurs like myself get a start. Besides, don't you like a gift shop when you travel right in your lobby? Each artist and artisan has his or her own personality and gift sure to add personality as a gift to your life!

While here choose to plant a perennial in "Peabody's Community Garden" so your plant can grow along with the spirit you have left when you choose to leave (if you can!). You are invited to decorate a rock from my original home "The Peabody Farm" in Upstate New York to accompany your plant. Fun!

Peabody’s Hip Little Stay exceeded my expectations!! We will be back! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

This was a quaint, charming place that made us feel warm and cozy. Breakfast and coffee were outstanding and the owner made us feel very welcome! She arranged a picnic and hike for us and it was quite an adventure!

Loved her little house mascot Helen the dog :)

Five stars for the bed; sheets were soft and the pillows comfortable. A must if you come to Luray!!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to meet Judy, Dorothy and Miss Helen. Having the entire second level of this home was extremely spacious and more than enough room for my husband and myself. All of the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the many recommendations given to us by Judy and she was absolutely right in reference to all of them. We especially enjoyed the coffee delivered upstairs at 8:30 AM and the delicious, extremely satisfying breakfast delivered at 9:00. We also did the "farm to table" breakfast one morning and that was an absolute feast. The fire pit and hot tub in addition to the relaxing porch are just added bonuses to this lovely home.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and I hope it helps others to be blessed like you were. Mom, Miss Helen and I hope to see you again! Hugs!

My favorite activity in the summer is kayaking the Shenandoah. There are a variety of outfitters to meet this need or bring your own canoe or kayak!

For every season there is an activity suitable for you and your family. From an indoor water park to underground caverns to high top mountain views we are lucky enough to have it all and want to share it!
