Speakeasy provides everything from casual fare - Cheeseburgers and Fish and Chips to more formal Steak and Seafood dishes.

I had researched the Mimslyn Inn before and even recommended it to some friends as one of the better places in that area. What I didn't consider was that the living social offer was that successful that...

We stayed 1 night at the Mimslyn on our way to Charlottesville. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Everyone was friendly and the room was great. The bed was very comfortable, yet the pillows were too firm for me personally.... The Speakeasy bar was very nice... everyone was friendly. We ate there for dinner... enjoyed the live music. No...

I saw the Mimslyn on livingsocial. We've been wanting to take a trip to Luray Caverns, so I bought it. The property is beautiful! We stayed in a standard room. It was clean and very cute... Tad small, but it worked. I really wanted to try the Circa 31 restaurant... But it was late. We went down to the Speakeasy...

The Mimslyn Inn is great getaway. From the cozy sitting area to the beautifully furnsihed rooms, everything is well maintained and neat. A first class inn. The chef at the SpeakEasy provides culinary delights for his guests. The atmosphere at both the inn and restaurant is very relaxing. A great place for a weekend away.
