About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Quiet Location, Mountain Views, Great For Biking or Hiking.

Old Mine Cottage is outfitted with quite a few amenities that will make your stay very enjoyable! A 5 person hot tub is always a hit with younger and older guests alike, and for a perfectly relaxing experience, the outdoor fire pit is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, golfing, or however you choose to spend your time in Luray! The kitchen is beautifully designed and comes complete with every appliance needed, including a dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer on site as well for those who wish to use them. Every few hours the train comes through, and the property is just the right distance from the tracks for it to be charming. There is a brand new TV in the living room, with a DirecTV package, and a DVD player. The inside of the cottage has a very rustic feel to it. Everything is completely new, but was carefully crafted to feel very comfortable and unique. The property sits at a convenient location to get to, with only a 10 minute drive to nearly everything you could need to do.

About Gerald Dovel

We have lived in Luray, VA our entire lives, and have always loved it here. My wife and I both hold public positions; her with page county schools and myself with the page county health department. 20 years ago after our home was paid for I bought our first monthly rental property on High Street in downtown Luray. It was a big investment, and lots of long nights after work were spent there to bring it into the condition I wanted, but it turned out great. A lot has changed since then, and 1 monthly rental property has turned into 26. Two years ago we decided to expand our horizons and move into more than just monthly rentals, which ultimately led to Old Mine Cottage. It took a two year process to get to today, but the result is a gorgeous property that is ready to be utilized. As we continue to grow in the business world we invite you to come and stay with us. Let us know how we did. We think you will be impressed.

Gerald Dovel purchased this cottage in 2012

We stayed here for a weekend at the end of October. Both the land and the house were beautiful and cozy, and the owner was polite and helpful. Was perfect for 2 people, but would be a great place for larger groups as well.

Can't wait to come back in the future.

Fantastic, secluded property only minutes from Shenandoah National Park!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and surrounding acreage provided a relaxing home for the weekend as we explored Shenandoah National Park. We especially enjoyed the huge yard and hot tub! We hope to stay here again in the future!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Old Mine Cottage. Everything we said in our first review 'Wonderful, Relaxing Getaway' was true this time, too. The cottage is secluded and peaceful, with lots to do within a short distance. Old Mine Cottage is a great place to relax and restore.

Wonderful, relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

This September was our second stay at this cabin in Luray. We love the outdoor setting - the fire pit, the quiet environment, the dark night that allows you to see the stars and the Milky Way. We live close - 90 minuted drive away - and plan to return every year.

This place is neat and clean. It is also very close to Shenandoah Park and not far from a City.

I love the location of this Cottage. It is only a few minutes away from a grocery store and a Walmart. And it is about 15 minutes away from Shenandoah National Park. The hot tub makes all the hard hiking worth it.AMAZING!!!!

So glad we found this place.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plan to come back - we loved our stay here. The house is well kept and perfectly equipped for visitors with pots and pans, towels, games, wifi everything we needed was easy to find. The hot tub and the fire pit give you great spots to just sit and enjoy the space - mountains in the distance, corn fields and forest surround the property - great sunsets and star gazing.

Old Mine Cottage is less than three miles from the main highway, (US-211) yet it is a world away from the norm. If you want a quiet setting with beautiful views, Old Mine Cottage will more than meet your needs. We are located close to the downtown area of Luray, with its' quaint shopping, restaurants, and the iconic 'Pink' movie theater. We are within 10 miles of a wide variety of activities, such as Yogi Bear's Jellystone park, which provides mini-golf, an arcade for kids, and a water slide. The Caverns Country club is a very short drive up US-211 and provides a beautiful and competitive challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The Luray Caverns are a 5 mile drive away and are a world famous, must see attraction. If you like to bike you will find miles of paved country roads with very little traffic. If you like to hike there are miles of trails close by. If doing nothing sounds good you will be more than happy at the cottage as well! You can relax on the decks, enjoy the hot tub, the fire pit, the ten acres of property or the cottage itself. We bought the property in 2012 and have carefully returned it to the time period of its construction. It has been a labor of love and we believe that you will love it too. We welcome you to come and experience it.
