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.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Janine are exceptional people who care deeply about pleasing guests and making sure guests have everything and all information they need. Their guest house is quaint with a private and peaceful back deck. Rooms are quite roomy and have all guest need. Bathroom sink and shower are very small but otherwise everything is great.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay. The owners have made this house into a comfortable home away from home. The attention to detail is marvelous and we loved staying here. Additionally the owners were very friendly and helpful with other suggestions about places to eat and see so that we should really enjoy our trip to Luray. Highly recommended.

Victorian Stunner in Luray

  • 5 of 5

Imagine being surrounded by beautiful art, pampered in sumptuous linens, charmed by a happy garden, and supplied with all the modern amenities (and likely more) that you need for a home away. Add a gregarious, accommodating host, and you have the Garfield House.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Garfield Guest House while exploring the Shenandoah Valley. The home is immaculate and conveniently located in Luray near the Skyline Drive.

As others noted, Larry personally showed us around the home and recommended local eateries and sights. He also gave us the bottom apartment, which opened onto a beautiful deck and garden off the kitchen in the rear of the home. Talk about smelling the roses over breakfast!

The first floor home is easily accessible for those with mobility issues. However, the small step down to the kitchen and another to the bathroom, plus narrow doorways, are issues for wheelchairs. Also not suggested for active young children who do not mix well with Oriental rugs and antique furniture.

We adored Garfield House and the Shenandoah and are eager to return.

The perfect cozy getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the Garfield Guest House - Hawksbill Suite. From the warm welcome we got on arrival, to the charming, immaculately maintained apartment, and the lovely town of Luray, this was one of our favorite VRBO stops. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful. Comfortable. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for visiting nearby Luray Caverns and Skyline Drive. House is beautifully appointed yet comfortable with a homey feel. We appreciated the complimentary snacks and beverages. The brochures for local attractions and restaurants was especially helpful. Would definitely recommend the Garfield House for a peaceful getaway.
