About the property

Three BR/2 Bath Cabin, Sleeps 6 w/Hot Tub and Mountain Views

Secluded Get-Away from the weekly grind, this cabin is very new and open for business! Warm, inviting, spacious with all the amenities of a luxury hotel right in the shadow of the Shenandoah Mountains, this cabin is ready for up to six guests at a time. Fully furnished, with a fabulous 8-person hot tub, super deck, screened-in-porch, grill and one gas fireplace, you will enjoy nature, peace-and-quiet as well the comforts of “A Buck's View.” Outfitted with flat screen televisions, DVD/VCR and DIRECT TV, come and enjoy the Shenandoah Valley during the day and unwind by the fireplace with a movie at night. Yes, we have a great fire pit outside (wood not provided) and a dog run for those guests who have their best friend by their side (yes, there is a pet charge)!

This three-bedroom cabin brags two king sized beds, and one queen sized bed. Two full baths (one master suite bath and one full bath in the hall) , sile-stone countertops, stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, fridge etc.) and plenty of room for your group of up to six person makes this the ideal weekend get-away. No internet connection and no WIFI for guests but there is spotty service for your smart phone (Verizon is strongest signal). Sure, there is a washer and dryer in the unit for the guests who want to make more than a weekend of it!

Gadino Cellars offers reduced pricing on tastings to any guests of “A Buck’s View,” and downtown Luray is a quaint town with antique shops, craft stores and super restaurants. Luray Caverns and zip-lining are great for the kids as well as a day on the Shenandoah River (call Luray Chamber of Commerce for more details at 540.743.3915). Lake Arrowhead is less than three miles away for a day at the Lake to swim, boat or fish etc.

'A Buck's View' is about 90 minutes from downtown Washington, DC. Escape the crowds and the bustle for the mountains!

5% Teachers & Military discount with ID. If you are a repeat customer, let me know for another discount! You must request the discount at the time of reservation or prior to confirming the reservation.

Located East of Luray, Va. 22835 off of Rt. 211, bordering the Shenandoah National Park. You can expect an 8 -mile drive to downtown Luray. Check in is typically at 3 p.m. and check out is at 11 a.m. sharp. Come and enjoy this great all-log cabin!

Finally, we are excited about our new concrete driveway up to the cabin - installed Dec 2016!

Of note:

- Early check ins or late check outs are an option pending the guests coming or going before you. There is a $40 charge for both early check in and late check out if it is available.

- Firewood is stacked by the handyman but not a guarantee. We recommend bringing your own firewood or checking the cabin out first and then purchasing it if is not there when you arrive.

- Charcoal is not provided for the grill and the gas grill is generally ready with a tank but if you run out or there is little in the tank, you are on your own to refill the tank.

- Dishes, cooking utensils, pots, pans, silverware, glasses etc. are in the cabinets. However, if you need a special utensil to cook a favorite meal, bring it.

- There are some games there at the cabin but bring your own playing cards, favorite games etc.

- Coffee pot is there with filter - bring your own grounds, creamer and sweetener.

About Carl S. Ey

The owners are a retired military couple but they lease their cabin to a limited liability company to manage 'A Buck's View.' Your host for your stay at the cabin is Ey Man Enteprises, LLC. We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to your review. Thank you.

Carl S. Ey purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carl S. Ey chose Luray

This cabin came available to Ey Man Enterprises, LLC in 2005 and was redone in 2014. Looking for a place to let our clients hang their hats on long weekends that took them away from the DC bustle, Ey Man Enterprises, LLC was fortunate enough to acquire 'A Buck's View.' It has been a main staple of many vacation plans ever since. Please enjoy our favorite wineries - 'Little Washington Winery,' Gadino Cellars and Chester Gap Cellars. Dinner is super at Thornton River Grill in Sperryville but you need reservations typically!

What makes this cabin unique

The most unique benefit is that you are away from everything - it is quiet at 'A Buck's View.' This cabin was completed in July 2014 and ready for guests - serene and ready for you to relax i.e. no internet, no wi-fi, your cell phone may get connectivity but even better is that it will likely NOT get service ;)! Drive into town (8 miles) to get connected with your smart phone - other than that, enjoy the peace at this great cabin.

Please remember, the hot tub is serviced regularly. To that end, all clients MUST SHOWER BEFORE ENTERING THE HOT TUB. Additionally, if the hot tub becomes inoperable during your stay, it will likely not be repaired and the owner will not authorize a refund of any kind if the hot tub becomes in operable. Since the hot tubs are maintained/serviced regularly, we rarely have an issue but again, refunds for hot tubs that break down during your stay are not provided. Lastly, please keep all drinks away from the hot tub; the tub is checked after you leave and we will charge for a water change if the H2O is murky or the handyman finds bottle caps, cups etc. in the tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We took a family trip to Buck's View in early September. This was a perfect place to relax away from the city. Will definitely think about going again during the winter. Five- plus stars!!!!!

The cabin was just as advertised. Cozy, clean and neat with all the comforts of home. My wife and I had a wonderful weekend stay. We really enjoyed the hot tub and sitting around the fire pit after our hikes in Shenandoah National Park. The hike to Mary's Rock was amazing.

Cabin And Hiking Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed here in early October for a short fall vacation. The location was great, it was less than 5 minutes from the entrance of Shenandoah National Park. The convenience of the cabin's location allowed us to hike trails in the morning and come back to get our dog for some dog friendly trails in the afternoon. The cabin was very dog friendly, it was great having a fenced in area for our dog Frodo, even though he was not a fan of the fire pit when it was up and running! The back yard was great, we had a fire every night to toast s'mores, there was also and outside screened in porch you could enjoy. The kitchen had all of the essentials we needed for cooking, and having a nice refrigerator with a tap water option was a great bonus. The living room in the cabin was perfect, with a gas fireplace we sit around and watch movies at night if we wanted. The cabin has three great bedrooms and the bathrooms were nice and updated, you could easily have up to 6 people stay and not feel too cramped. The cabin felt just right and secluded enough that we were raeally able to disconnect. Yes there is no cell service or WiFi, but we really enjoyed that part. The area surrounding the cabin has plenty of wineries and craft distilleries and breweries, and the Luray Caverns are a must see. We highly recommend going to Hopkins Ordinary Ale Works if they are open while you are there, the owners were super friendly and nice and their beer was great! We were also close enough to some smaller towns to get any food or anything we missed packing before our trip as well. We really enjoyed our stay at A Buck's View, we would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area. We can't wait to hopefully come back!

Great get away for the family! Thank YOU!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been so busy with the hustle and bustle of life and with family living 12 hours away, meeting up at Bucks View was the best decision we could have made. The cabin was warm and inviting. Beautiful scenery! Quiet and plenty of room for two couples and our dog. We loved sitting around the campfire at night and eating in the screened in porch for all of our meals. We felt one with nature. If we had more time, we would have opted to stay longer. Thank you!!!

Cozy cabin tucked away in the Shendoah Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time - prior to our trip we were given plenty of information regarding the cabin and surrounding area making the renting experience easy. We had no problem with roads or directions , getting to the cabin was easy. The cabin was clean and cozy. We're very active and spent most of our time doing things in the area, hiking , rafting, caverns etc. But coming back to a warm shower , hot jacuzzi tub and clean bed after a long day was very relaxing. The cabin had all the amenities you need- so no need to pack like your going camping . We would definitely go back !!

Perfect escape to relax and unwind!

  • 4 of 5

Carl was very helpful during the booking process and provided detailed check/check out instructions and on point directions to the cabin. The cabin met our expectations and more! The perfect place to unwind and just relax. We enjoyed the Hot tub after our day exploring the Luray and Front Royal cabins. We cooked dinner on the grill and had s'mores by the campfire. This reminded me of our camping trips in the white mountains when our kids were small but even better! You know it was a great family vacation when your 16 year old son thanks you for finding this GEM :-) We will be back for another stay!

10 minutes from Skyline is this well - equipped cabin, that has more on the description suggests!

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away on its own in the woods this is is a great getaway. Don't expect immaculate outside areas because this is where wild things live. As we left one early morning, on our first turn of the road, we had to wait while a young black bear waddled off into the thick grass! Inside the cabin are all the modern comforts we needed, from good quality beds to air-con and comfortable rustic furniture throughout. After mountain walking, we spent three most restful days sitting watching the world go by!

Borders Shenandoah National Park; this cabin is literally in the shadow of the Shenandoah Mountains. This is a great area to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Antiquing is a great activity and the wineries right over the mountain in Washington, Virginia are fabulous! Visit both Gadino Cellars and Lil Washington Winery and tell them where you are staying for a nice discount on the tasting price. Additionally, the cabin is a short ride from Lake Arrowhead for swimming and fishing, Bear Mountain Zip Lining is less than 8 min away by car and Luray Caverns are open year round within a 15 min car ride. Lastly, the most unique movie theater is downtown Luray at Page Theater; playing first run movies, you will thoroughly enjoy this quaint movie hall!

Please remember to take care of the cabin as if it were your second home. The housekeepers work primarily for tips so when you get to a clean cabin, remember them in gratuity.

The hot tub is fabulous but we require all to shower before entering and no drinks on the hot tub ledge or near it.

Smoking in the cabin in prohibited. Smoking outside is fine but please clean up.

Yes, you can bring your dog (or dogs) for a fee; one dog is $40 for your stay and two or more has an $80 charge. Please use the "pooper scoopers" to clean up after your pet. Lastly, please do not leave the pet inside the cabin unless you have a crate and do not leave the dog in the dog run if you are leaving the premises.

Lastly, please follow the check in/out instructions and we will be happy to refund your deposit within 14 days of your departure.

Have a great time.
