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 Shenandoah Valley

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!

Great experience. Especially nice if you're looking for privacy on your stay

  • 4 of 5

The private hot tub and firepit were probably our favorite. It was nice not having to share these amenities with other guests. The breakfasts were delicious, but maybe not the expected fare of a typical B&B. Location to local attractions was great, with many local restaurants within walking distance.

Very nice and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quick and quiet weekend getaway after our wedding weekend. This was the perfect place! From the moment we arrived Judy had special touches for us since we were newlyweds which made our stay even more special. The fire pit and hot tub gave just the perfect touch for our quiet weekend honeymoon. We made sure to use both and they are amazing! We will definitely be back for another weekend. Must stay at this place!

Lovely, huge apartment in Luray

  • 5 of 5

Peabody's Hip Little Stay is a fun place to rest after hiking in the Shenandoah National Park. My husband and I hike Old Rag every October, and like to find new places to experience for the 2 days we are there. This B&B is roomier than expected, with the amenities of coffee and a lighter style breakfast being brought up to your room around 8:30- 9:00 AM. The atmosphere is relaxed and Judy does a great job of giving you your space with your loved one. The hot tub with a view of the mountains was a great way to unwind after the 9.6 mile Old Rag hike! Judy and her dog, Miss Helen, are friendly, warm, and Judy gives excellent advice on where to have a wonderful meal in town. We recommend Peabody's Hip Little Stay!

Up to 5 guests should they be able to leave this 'Hip Little Stay' can walk to all monuments, stores, restaurants, galleries, the Saturday Farmer's Market (9-1 seasonal), outdoor and indoor music, a wonderful movie theater, two live performance centers, beautiful parks, the Singing Tower and finally the Hawksbill Greenway.

Within a short drive are many venues including the zoo, caverns, wineries, golf, hiking, horseback riding, zip lining and much, much more!

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!

Welcome!
