Circa 1739. This 23-acre estate offers scenic pastures with grazing horses in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Peter Ruffner, the first settler of Page Valley and Luray, built the inn, a stately manor. Ruffner family members discovered a cavern opposite the entrance to the Luray Caverns, which were later discovered. In 1840 the house was sold and no Ruffners occupied it until this year when an 8th-generation Ruffner purchased it. The inn offers handsome antiques, two parlors and two enticing porches. Guest rooms feature a selection of amenities including some with fireplaces, Victorian tubs, ceiling fans and pastoral views. Afternoon tea is offered. A gourmet breakfast is served in the manor's elegant dining room and will provide sustenance for a full day of recreation. Visit wineries, battlefields, the Shenandoah National Park and Luray Caverns or enjoy horseback riding, canoeing, cycling, golfing or browsing the antique and boutique shops.
