About Jeff and Kristin Gaulard
Jeff and I have lived in Luray for about 10 years and we love the area. There are gorgeous views everywhere you look. We love the quiet area, no hustle and bustle, no traffic! We love the small town feeling! We have owned SmileInn Over the River for about 4 years. It is nice when you hear that guests had a wonderful time and were able to come out to Luray and get away from it all. I am retired from the fire department in Fairfax County, VA and Jeff left his job in insurance to open and run our new store in Luray. We own a business where we repurpose wine barrels, bottles and corks. We make furniture and other various unique items from all of them. We also bought a store on Highway 211 recently, formerly White House Antiques and Souvenirs and renamed Massanutten Country Corner. We plan to promote made in the USA and anything made and grown locally. We are in the process of working on renovations. Our plans are to have a garden shop, farmers market, cafe and our main store featuring Cork to Barrel and other unique gifts and home decor. We live near the base of Massanutten and our home is also the home for 5 dogs, 3 cats and 7 goats and we have 2 horses that are boarded nearby at River Hill Stables. We love and enjoy all of our 4 legged family! Please stop by our store while visiting the area and anyone interested in visiting our goats just let us know and we can make arrangements for you to visit.
Jeff and Kristin Gaulard purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Jeff and Kristin Gaulard chose Luray
We loved the peaceful and quiet area where the cabin is located. There is a wide, open field down by the river a large amount of river frontage. Lots of room for kids and dogs to run around and play.
What makes this Cabin unique
One thing that is nice about this property is that it is located beyond the route for drop off and pick up for all the river outfitters for tubes and kayaks. During the season there are buses constantly driving all up and down the road past most of the rentals on the river. SmileInn Over the River is beyond their route so you have the peace and quiet all day long!

We had a great time, the cabin was cozy and relaxing and we enjoyed tubing and swimming in the river and so did the dog! Kristin and Jeff were great and we loved the country store and meeting them, the kids really liked feeding the goats. I'd recommend this cabin anytime!
If you need time to unplug from life, I highly recommend this cabin! Amazing time with my friends. Fishing, Camping, Tubing, Grilling, and above all.... RELAXATION!
Two thumbs up!
The cabin and property are great. Everything was neat and clean and there were clear instructions. Communication with the hosts was excellent. We highly recommend staying here and will be returning.
Lovely relaxing long weekend
Very comfortable dog friendly house on the Shanandoah river.
2nd Visit was Wonderful
This was my wife and I second time at the SmileInn over the River. It was as perfect as the first. When we arrived the cabin was clean and ready. there was a problem with the wireless but once we informed Jeff and Kristian it was fixed very quickly so quickly I was amazed at how they were able to do it. The dogs loved the river and yard and their new 2 best buds the puppies down the road who stopped by for play time twice a day. We will return again even though we have purchased a new RV.
Thanks once again,
Harry & Janet
We really enjoyed the cabin. It sleeps 6 very comfortably. The house was clean and the owner was really kind and helpful. The river was too high and rough to canoe or productively fish during our stay. However, we found a great pond about five miles down the dirt road that was great for fishing.
Located in Luray outside of town in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley. Luray Caverns, Shenandoah National Park/ Skyline Drive, Massanutten Resort, Mimslyn Inn, and Wisteria Vineyard are all located within and hour from the cabin.
