- A One-Night Stay for Two in a Standard Room
- Two Tickets to Luray Caverns
- Two Souvenir Wine Glasses
You can get your kicks on Route 66, but the scenery pales in comparison to traveling down I-81 as it winds through the Shenandoah Valley. Hit the road with this Escape to The Mimslyn Inn in Luray, Virginia, less than two hours from Washington, DC.
The historic Colonial property recently completed a multi-million-dollar tune-up to keep its spa, fitness center, and grounds polished. Its guest rooms feature pillow-top beds fitted with 300-thread-count linens as well as wireless Internet and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.
The inn is situated between Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest, so you won't be spinning your wheels in search of entertainment. Cruise along Skyline Drive to admire 105 miles of mountain scenery, or go underground to explore Luray Caverns. "In addition to monumental columns in rooms more than 140 feet high," says Frommer's, "you'll see beautiful cascades of natural colors."
If you're not the outdoorsy type, check out the many wineries and whisky distilleries in the area. You can refuel with gourmet Southern cuisine at the upscale Circa '31—open daily for breakfast and lunch and Fridays and Saturdays for dinner—or park yourself at The Speakeasy Bar & Restaurant for a nightcap and more casual fare like baby back ribs or pan-fried trout. At the end of the day, feel free to sit back in a rocking chair as stars sparkle against the clear mountain sky.
Consider this Escape your green light to hit the road to a Shenandoah haven.
