We have made the difficult decision to close the Mimslyn Inn on March 22 due to the coronavirus pandemic. We did not make this decision lightly. Based on the current information we decided we could not provide for the needs of social distancing within the lobby, guests rooms and restaurants.

Cottages and Manor House
The Cottages and Manor House are unique and have been sanitized from top to bottom. The Cottages and Manor House provide a safe and social distancing from other guests and are self-contained with all the luxuries you would expect in a first class hotel. Should you decide to travel and enjoy a respite from the hectic world, even for one night,I assure you will be able to do so in a safe environment.  Once you watch the birds chirp, spring flowers bloom, and the Dogwood burst into full color from your own front porch, hopefully, you will have less stress, even for just a day.

The Bridal cottage does offer a private hot tub and will be sanitized and the water changed between each guest visit.

The check-in process is fully automated so that human interaction has been eliminated. Please call our front desk 9am – 5pm 540-743-5105 x6102 to make arrangements.

We rent cottages and annex apartments daily, weekly, and monthly. Call for rates.

Our first priority is to keep our employees and guests safe. We will open in phases.

As we open in Phase 1, what are we doing in hopes of ensuring your safety?

  • Re-arranging furniture to social distance in our space
  • Installing no-touch items like faucets and paper towel dispensers
  • Creating no contact check-in process for the rooms and cottages
  • Consulting with experts on new cleaning protocols and products
  • Creating signage to direct the flow of traffic – how to enter and exit common space

Under current restrictions, we are able to open the Cottages with no touch check-in process. The grounds are ready for you to explore. The flowers are blooming, birds chirping and the view from our front porch is always beautiful. Open spaces are ready for you to relax and enjoy.
