Luray was recently ranked the number two most beautiful wedding location in America. We are proud of this designation but we are not surprised. Luray is nestled between the Blue Ridge and Massanutten Mountains in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Grand mountains, idylic farms, gorgeous sunsets and a rustic charm make Luray a truly wonderful location for a destination wedding. 

This is the view from the Pavilion... including a sweeping panorama of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley. Joseph House is just across the field. The view is facing southwest, sunsets here are an event. The Pavilion at Shenandoah Woods is a covered, open-air structure purpose built for weddings or any social event. Photo by Natural Bliss Photography

Please know that our rental properties are available for anyone to rent and not all properties may be available for every date. Please see the Pavilion calendar first to determine if the Pavilion is available for your dates. We will be happy to let you know which of our properties are also available.


Rehearsal Dinners

We have two unique venues for rehearsal dinners or other gatherings. Somerset has plenty of yard space, a covered porch, a large deck, fire pit and a covered hot tub deck. Joseph House has a huge yard and a 360 degree view of the valley and mountains.


Shuttle Bus

Our 14 passenger shuttle bus is available to transport your guests between the Pavilion, vacation properties and local hotels. The shuttle bus may also be hired for excursions; take a group to a winery, Skyline Drive or a bachelor/bachelorette party. The shuttle bus is priced at $75 per hour.



There are several options for music and entertainment. Bands are welcome or you may hire a Disc Jockey, they can bring their own speakers or they may use our professional 3,000 watt sound system and light show. Another popular option is to bring your own music on an iPod or laptop to use with our PA system.  Our sound system is not a wimpy hotel PA. It is a professional system designed to sound clean and powerful. Every DJ that has plugged in has been impressed. Loud music must end by 10pm.
