About The Owner

Larry, a native Washingtonian grew up in the Maryland suburbs and worked for many top organizations including years at Marriott executive headquarters. The hospitality business came natural to me. I took the leap to go back to Culinary School, and wanted to put my skills to work in a business that was fitting to my personality. Since moving to Luray I have been working with many of the top Inns, Bed and Breakfast, and Spas in Little Washington and Luray, Virginia.

Janine, a world traveler and a native New Zealander came to the Washington area over 15 years ago. She works in a top law firm in Washington, and spends her weekends in the Shenandoah. Always up for the adventure of travel and her love of great wines is a wealth of information on both in the Shenandoah and around the world.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Shenandoah Valley

This little house in the heart of Luray had so many redeeming qualities, and we just loved it. The house was centrally located to everything in the area. We loved cabins, but found them a little too isolated. We wanted to find things to do after a day at the vineyards, in the mountains or on the river. It was perfect for having a great evening out at one of the local restaurants or events and could easily walk back being just minutes away. The house offered a perfect mix of country and town. Our goal was to bring amenities to the house that we sorely wanted while we were traveling. A place to relax, a place to enjoy with friends, and a place we could enjoy together. We hope that you will find that here and that you will love it too.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there for 2 days and it was awesome! Larry was more than accomodating! He was extremely nice! We would definitely stay there again. We stayed in the bottom suite which when you walked in there was the living room with electric fireplace and 2 very comfortable chairs and couch. The bedroom has a huge queen sized bed with an armoire equipped with 2 complementary bathrobes and extra blankets and pillows. Once you go through the bedroom to the left you have the spa room and bathroom. The spa room has a wonderful Jacuzzi tub and 2 chairs to relax. You go through the spa room to get to the bathroom with has a nice sized shower with rain showerhead. The kitchen was decent as it came with complementary chocolates, assortment of tea, creamer, and coffee. He also provided us with a few sodas and waters as well. The backyard is very relaxing as well. I would definitely stay there again! Enjoy your stay!(:

Excellent accommodation in Luray!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Garfield Guest House was fantastic. Just the respite we needed after a long day of hiking. The suite on the top floor where we stayed was spotless and spacious, with a full kitchen and large bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub. Larry, the host, was very accommodating and provided some great suggestions for local restaurants and wineries.

The only downside was that the mattress was too soft for my preference, but we had a great stay nonetheless.

I have been at many places at air bnb and vrbo. By far the best host I ever had was Larry. He made us feel the place as our home. Suggested us with places to visit.provided with information about everything happening around this place .It was my girl friends birthday and Larry got a cake for us and kept it as a surprise for her. I had the best stay ever. The place was very clean and beautiful. Larry and his wife were very welcoming. l would defnetly come back pretty soon.👌

Cozy tranquility at the Heart of Shenandoah

  • 5 of 5

Larry knows hospitality. He made sure we felt super comfortable from beginning to end. He checked in on us before we got there, was waiting for us when we arrived, and gave us great recommendations. You can tell he takes pride in what he does. The accommodations had everything we needed. Wifi was reliable, kitchen well stocked, bath was luxurious. After a day of hiking in the Shenandoah National Park, soaking in the huge jet tub was absolute heaven on earth! This was part of our yearly anniversary trip after a week in Manhattan, so it was definitely a wonderful way to reset and unwind. Definitely recommend!
