Photos and Description of this Luray holiday cabin

Cabin - 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed - 1 Bath - (Sleeps up to 5)

Secluded along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains we have the ideal vacation getaway. This unspoiled paradise is perfect for a romantic rendezvous or a family retreat. With 10+ acres there is plenty of space to soak up the crisp, clean mountain air and enjoy the great outdoors. Walk, hike, or visit the nearby creek. Catch a glimpse of wildlife roaming the area. Play outside on the large front lawn and fire up the BBQ grill for a picnic on the covered patio. At the end of your day, watch the sunset from the porch swing, curl up by the gas fireplace or roast marshmellows around the campfire area. The cabin is located just outside Luray in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, minutes from Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns. Open year round.

About Erik

Fox Den Cabin is a family run vacation rental in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Our entire family was born and raised in Luray, Virginia. We take pride in providing you with a great vacation experience and a clean, cozy place to call home whenever you visit the Shenandoah Valley.

Erik purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has a rustic feel, but is just modern enough to provide you with all the amenities of home. The property is bordered by rock walls dating back to the late 1800's. Years of hard work was put into rebuilding the walls as you see them today.

Great owner, property, and location!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Erik (the owner) was so accommodating to our needs and questions. Really went above and beyond to help me organize our weekend trip!

The cabin is so wonderful! Easy to find, easy access to food markets, gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, but you still feel like you are in a private secluded area. Very quiet and relaxing. Upon our arrival we heard charming singing bells far off in the distance, right before sunset and that was just magical! The front porch is huge, with a delightful swing to enjoy your morning coffee while you gaze over the well maintained front yard! The side porch provides a charcoal and gas BBQ pit and large picnic table. There is a nice size stone fire pit behind the cabin! Our dogs loved running all over and fetching on the huge grassed yard!

Inside, the cabin has brand new upgraded wood flooring in the living room, with brand new sofa and reclining love seats to enjoy the view from the huge picture window overlooking the front lawn. Our favorite feature was the record player with the fantastic selection of vinyl country classics. We played some great classics while BBQing outside, or getting ready in the morning! The kitchen was well stocked!

The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water and clean towels and linens. The cabin is heated by baseboard heating, which has individual controls for the living spaces, which was nice, and a wonderful gas fireplace in the living room for added toasty warmth for the evening! The entire cabin was superbly clean, and lots of useful travel and sight seeing information.

Location was great for all the entertainment the National Parks had to offer, and every single local we met was so friendly. We hiked the White Oak Run Trail, which had multiple waterfalls, great riverside places to relax, and breathtaking views! I have to say this little cabin was just the perfect get away for us and our dogs! Thank you Erik!

Clean, peaceful, and exactly as advertised

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay, having decided to make a weekend with the family out of the Luray Triathlon. The cabin is very close to Lake Arrowhead, the race site. Whether you are there for the races or just enjoying the area, it's a great park. The cabin was clean, plenty of towels, and as advertised. The brook was fun for the kids to play in as well. My only bit of feedback for the owner is that it's probably time to invest in some new pillows as they are all quite thin! Clearly a minor comment overall. We will be back.

Cozy cabin, good location for hiking

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Fox Den for a week with my husband, adult son and our dog. The house was clean, comfortable and as described by Erik and in the pictures. There was ample room for all and the covered outdoor area, with a picnic table and grill, was great for dinners and morning coffee.

We had rented so that we could explore both Shenandoah national park and parts of the George Washington national forest. This cabin was very centrally located for hiking in both of these parks, which was ideal for us. Stores were close. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to explore the area without the hassles for camping.

Perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin, the location and the fact that there was no cell phone or internet access. We were a short drive away from the Shenandoah National Park and so we would spend several hours hiking the trails, then return to an air-conditioned home. It is a quiet location with lots of amenities. We are used to hiking in the fall so hiking in July ( and likely the hottest week of the year) was an adjustment. My only suggestion would be to put a fan on the front porch. We ended up buying one at the dollar store. It not only helped cool but it helped with the bugs as well. I highly recommend this cabin to everyone. We are all ready talking about returning in the fall. We were also able to bring our dog, Rilee, which was a huge plus.
