    September 2021 wedding - Luray Caverns and the Inn & Barn at Shawnee Estates

    We reserved the Inn at Shawnee Estates for our daughter's fiance's family (16 people) since we booked their wedding in Luray Caverns and reception at the Shawnee Estates' Barn. The inn is beautiful decorated, comfortable, and very clean. Perfect for wedding guests, family reunions, ... The barn is perfect for a reception! Our Venue Director, Katherine Spain, was terrific to work with! She listened to what we had in mind, and offered ideas and suggestions. She and her team worked their magic from organizing the wedding itself, to decorating the Barn, and making sure the reception was memorable! Everything was so very beautiful! Every guest commented how lovely this venue was!

    Shawnee Farms Estate's reply:

    Rose,

    Thank you for the marvelous review! It was such a pleasure to be a part of Laurel & Lance's special day! It was so sweet to see how the couple blossomed throughout the evening as excited newlyweds. The festivities were so dreamy and effortless throughout the whole day & it was so much fun for us and our staff to create a look that matched their personalities so well. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed staying in the Farmhouse over the wedding weekend.

    We would love to see you all return for another event in the future or just to come stay with us again at the Airbnb.
    Thank you again and we are glad we could be a part of the experience! 馃槉

    Our Best Day

    We found Shawnee Farms Estate while looking for a wedding venue in the Shenandoah Valley. As we pulled up and saw the 360 views of mountains we knew we found a special place. The estate house was perfectly maintained with old fashioned luxury and the property offered so many diverse ceremony sites. Our wedding turned out to be our best day ever. Guests loved the scenery and charm from another time. The staff was so easy to work with from day 1 and did everything possible to make this day so special for us. We wish we could do it all over again.
