Looking for a place to stay?

Why not try the Cornfield Inn? It is a great place to stay when visiting Valley Star Farm for Christmas as its next door to the farm — and only minutes away from all of the other great activities Luray and Page County have to offer. Visit their Facebook Page here.

There are also many other places to stay, including the Mymslyn Inn, an historic hotel in downtown Luray, and numerous B&Bs and log cabin rentals all over the Page County area.  What you will not find are any large hotel chains.  The Shenandoah Valley is a beautiful, peaceful retreat into nature.
