Photos and Description of this Shenandoah holiday cabin

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located South of Luray off of RT. 340 near Shenandoah, Va. 22849. Only 20 miles to Massanutten resort and 15 miles to the town of Luray.

350 ft. trail from cabin to private river access

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. Massanutten Resort “A Four Seasons Resort”, Massanutten WaterPark, and the Massanutten Ski Resort are only 20 minutes.

We look forward to your visit and hope you enjoy making many wonderful vacation memories with us!

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.

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!

Really Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the cabin. The home is beautiful, clean, and quaint. The beds were great, the rooms and baths very nice, and the porch was good. We loved the location and especially seeing the cows when we came back in the evening. The river was lovely but the walk down is steep. Thank goodness for the 2 benches.

We did not find a good restaurant around but the closeness to Skykine Drive and Luray made up for that. We hiked then came home to cook a nice meal.

Wonderful Get Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a true destination cabin. Once you are there you do not need to leave. The cabin is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures. Great seating areas inside and outside make it perfect for family time together. There is a path from the cabin down to the river. The area at the river is like your own private park. It is grassy and just beautiful. Canoes, kayaks, paddles, life vests, picnic table, dock, fire ring and fire wood can all be found by the river. It is beautiful. There is a sign that the property sits 900 feet from a 24foot drop dam on the river. The river is not rushing hard so my kids had no issues getting ashore in the canoe or kayak but this is something to know. We saw 2 bald eagles fly by the first morning we were at the cabin. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. The kitchen knives are a bit dull and could use sharpening but that is my only negative in the kitchen. All kitchen appliances, casserole dishes, pots and pans, etc are available. The cabin is equipped with plenty of bath towels and towels to use at the hot tub on the deck. The cabin was also very clean and looked almost new. I will note one more negative. The beds were fairly uncomfortable and all in our group commented on this. I think most of the mattresses are in need of being replaced fairly soon. However, everything else was simply spectacular and I would return to this cabin for another stay even if the mattresses were the same. There are several attractions in the area if you do decide to venture away from the cabin. We enjoyed Wisteria Winery and Skyline Drive. We stopped by the local Walmart for general groceries and headed to Martins Mkt for a seafood department. We had a very enjoyable long Easter weekend at the cabin and would love to visit again in the future!

Relaxation in Picturesque Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely adorable. I went with my husband and 15 month old son. We both just enjoyed getting away from it all and relaxing. The atmosphere of the cabin just makes you immediately carefree. Everything is so comfortable from the beds to the couches. We also had fun just exploring around the grounds. I highly recommend this to someone who wants the perfect cabin to just relax.
