A Shenandoah Valley tradition since 1931.

We are known throughout the Shenandoah Valley for our gracious atmosphere, personalized service, and picturesque surroundings.

Our historic setting features expansive lawns peppered with gardens, oversized patios, landscaped terraces, and tasteful stonework. We are within walking distance of historic downtown Luray, and can be found between the famous Luray Caverns and scenic Shenandoah National Park.

Catch our colonial vibe as you are greeted by a circular drive leading to a portico supported by high columns. Enter our gracious lobby: a real feast for the eyes, complete with hardwood floors and a winding staircase that will transport you back to the days of the Old South.

In the lobby, curl up by a large fireplace and sample a bottle of wine or our signature Moscow Mule made special by our lobby bartender.

If you smell a deliciously savory aroma, you may be heading toward the main dining room, Circa ’31, where our chef prepares seasonal dishes daily. Hear sounds of live music and the laughter of happy patrons enjoying drinks and dinner specials from our Speakeasy Bar and Restaurant menu.

The Mimslyn has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation. We invite you to sample our room selection and enjoy a welcoming atmosphere complete with traditional architecture, grand textures, and down-home comforts.

Our distinguished makeover has brought the Inn back, full of life and with many extras like a boutique spa, fitness room, business services, and elegant event spaces.

Enjoy full-service meeting/wedding packages and venue space for rehearsals, ceremonies and receptions.
