Luxury Shenandoah Valley Secluded River Cabin with all the amenities you need for “Rejuvenating Your Body and Soul. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains this elegant yet warm and inviting log cabin was carefully custom hand-crafted with rough pine boards cut at the local saw mill located in Shenandoah, Virginia. All the care and attention was given to detail with guests in mind for providing all the comforts of home away from home.

The cathedral ceilings will give you that romantic feel with the open floor plan and the warmth of the large stone gas fireplace. All of the interior decorating has been chosen with the natural surroundings of the outdoors right down to the designer quilts. The master suite offers its own private bathroom with a corner jacuzzi tub along with a step-in shower for complete privacy. All three bedrooms are equipped with 42” HD TV’s and DVD players and the Great Room with a 56” HD TV and DVD player.

The full length front and back covered porches provide great areas for relaxing, enjoying cool evening breezes and viewing the wildlife from birds, squirrel and deer. We provide rockers, wicker club chairs and dining table with chairs for the porches. Also, don’t miss out on the views of the river from the hot tub on the back deck area.

Hike down the path to the river for direct river access where you will have free use of kayaks, canoe, paddles, life jackets and fire wood for enjoying some marshmallows or smores. Benches are provided along the way for you “Daydreamers”. Don’t forget to bring your fishing poles, there is some great fish to be caught from the private dock at the river.

Centrally located with great attractions to the north and south, Luray Caverns and the George Washington National Forest is only a 10 minute drive with the Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park 20 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you soo much for sharing this lovely cabin with us for our 24th wedding anniversary. This is a peaceful, beautiful retreat which we enjoyed very much. My husband needed a stress relief and this truly ha been just that for him. Every time I couldn't find him I new to go right to the hot tub! Although it rained we still have enjoyed our time here just for the peace. We would love to return and have already talked about another trip here.

Another great visit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I first stayed at the cabin in August. We had such a great time we made a second trip last week but this time brought some friends along ! With the leaves gone for the winter we were are to see the river right from the deck. We enjoyed smores by the fire pit and loved that the cabin was decorated for Christmas. I'm sure we'll be back again!

Amazing time at A Above the River Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet, relaxing two night stay at the cabin. We had no complaints and only wish we stayed longer! The cabin was well equipped with everything we needed to truly unplug-- from the hot tub to a leisurely paddle on the river-- we enjoyed every moment of our time in Shenandoah. I would highly recommend visiting in the fall- the leaves were gorgeous. :)

In a cabin by the woods.....

  • 5 of 5

In case there are any former Girl Scouts out there, we modified the old Campfire song to "in a cabin by the woods, Golden Girls by the window stood....saw a rabbit hopping by..." The cabin is absolutely perfect in every way ..... very clean, beautiful and comfortable furnishings, and very private. We can't wait to return.

Another nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very nice and just the right size for 2 couples. Any more and it would be tight. The only issue we had was the view to river is blocked in most cases, no real view from cabin. Its not like it shows in pictures. Also it is a VERY steep walk up/down to the river. It really didn't explain that and the pictures make it look much easier and closer. The deck, firepit, and grounds are beautiful...just like we had hoped for. It is very private and close to a beautiful winery and of course Skyline Drive. All in all very nice.

Luray Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is nestled in the woods with a walking trail (walking sticks provided) leading to a private dock on the river. The cabin is cozy and nicely appointed, with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable living room furniture. The deck is perfect with half of it under roof so we were able to enjoy being outdoors even during the intermittent rain that we had during our stay. This is a property that we would consider renting again. Close to Luray Caverns and Shenandoah National Park. The owners were attentive and welcoming.

A true getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the cabin and we could not have been more pleased with our choice! The cabin was beautiful, very clean and had everything we needed. Other than a quick trip to the grocery store (only a 15 minute drive) and spending the morning at Luray Caverns we stayed at the cabin and did not see another person the whole time! The solitude was a refreshing change to our sometimes hectic lives. We took the canoe out multiple times and caught fish, saw a deer by the bank, plenty of eagles and even a bear swimming across the river! We enjoyed cooking on the grill, making smores at the fire pit, soaking in the hot tub and just relaxing! Would definitely love to stay here again!
