My family and I decided to stay in Luray for our 2021 family vacation, and settled on this property. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and the house itself is AMAZING! It's wonderfully designed, spacious, and full of amenities. I will say that we noticed some things weren't super clean when we arrived (we fully disassembled the fridge shelves/drawers and washed everything out), but I think that really falls on guests not leaving the space better than they found it (or as nicely as they found it). We have to work together to make the space clean and cozy for each other; it doesn't all fall fully on the owner.
Communicating with Ben was very easy, and he's a very nice man. Be sure that you check your email inbox (spam folders, too) for an email directly from Ben before your stay. It will have all of the information you need upon arrival. And VERY important information, too. SO READ HIS CORRESPONDENCE!!
We had such a wonderful time and had the pleasure of meeting Ben during our stay. I felt comfortable reaching out to extend our stay by one day, and he was gracious enough to accommodate our request.
Easy access to local attractions, but also a wonderful place to just rest and relax in/around the home. There were so many places to enjoy the outdoors (multiple decks/balconies, a large patio, and sprawling grounds). Stargazing, fire pit s'mores, outdoor dining, sunrises, and sunsets -- you should definitely schedule enough time to enjoy everything the home offers. A week felt like too little for us; I wish we had reserved the home for two weeks!!
Side note -- my family and I always travel with a million supplies. We try to clean and disinfect every space (even pre-Covid), and we travel with our own linens, so I don't have any information about the sheets or bedding, which I've noticed in other reviews. We also do a LOT of cleaning when we first arrive to a vacation home and upon departure. Other people might not be so keen to do that, so what I see as a normal "sweep" of a rental property others might find cumbersome.
Just know that the home is beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would go once a month if I could!
