About Lynn Jones

I'm a retired woman who loves the Shenandoah Valley and especially Massanutten. Having been born in PA in the mountains, this area in the mountains (Blue Ridge, Massanutten and Allegheny mountain ranges) is perfect for me. I also love people and owning vacation rentals is the perfect way for me to be able to treat others to what I love and offer them unforgettable vacations.

Lynn Jones purchased this house in 2012

Why Lynn Jones chose McGaheysville

The Crow's Nest is the most unique house I have seen in Massanutten. It almost looks like a house from a movie scene with a European flare, two sets of hand-welded spiral stair cases, warm knotty-wood pine walls in the great room and hall ways, hard wood doors and moldings and views of the mountains I love the out-of-doors and this house has about 1,000 square feet of beautiful covered decking with lots of wicker furniture and views.

What makes this house unique

This house makes you feel 'one with nature.' There are two large walls of floor to ceiling windows and approx. 1,000 sq ft of Trex decking and rails all covered with lovely roofing. The most unique aspect is the crow's nest atop the house for viewing the mountains.

Beautiful Cozy Pet-Friendly Home for Multiple Families, Highly Recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to go to Massanutten for our annual family reunion because they have snowboarding/skiing for the adults & an indoor waterpark for the kids. The house was perfect for multiple families & pet-friendly. There was plenty of room to park several cars, it was close to the resort, the kitchen had everything needed to cook huge meals, the rooms were very cozy, & there were different areas to hang out, so you could spend time together or escape for a little alone time. My daughter especially liked the "crow's nest". Hanging out in that room at the top of the house made her feel like a princess. It also didn't hurt that there was a hot tub!

The owner Lynn was very welcoming & wonderful to work with, communicating throughout the entire process & providing great recommendations for activities & places to dine.

We highly recommend this house & will be back!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Massanutten for the first time to celebrate a birthday and a JMU alum mini reunion. The house was perfect for multiple families. Everything we need to cook over the weekend was provided. Rooms were comfortable and there were different areas where kids, teens, and adults could hang out together or separately. We loved the hot tub and outdoor balcony to enjoy the unusually warm February weather. Would definitely return here!

We absolutely loved this home! We had five couples go for 3 nights and the house was set up perfectly! Plenty of space for the group we had!The parking was perfect for five vehicles! It was close to the resort we didn't have to drive far! Lynn from day one was wonderful to work with answering all our questions! So many extras were included making it so nice! We will definitely choose this house again!

Well appointed, comfortable home with plenty of room and awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Crow’s Nest for a long skiing weekend. It was clean, comfortable and very well appointed with all the comforts of home. Massanutten mountain activities are just a few minutes drive. The views are awesome, especially from the crow’s nest where we enjoyed watching the sun rise with our morning coffee! Lynn was amazing-very welcoming and communicating frequently throughout the entire process! We highly recommend this pet friendly Home for families/groups and are looking forward to returning in the future!

Wonderful mountain resort!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay! Everything was very clean and ready for our arrival. We especially enjoyed having the Christmas tree and decorations. The grandkids loved the bunk bed room - all 5 boys slept there! We also appreciated all of the games that were provided. The kitchen was well supplied and we made good use of the big dining room table. The location of the house was wonderful and very private. It even snowed our last day to make it look even more beautiful. Thanks for a great stay at Massanutten Resort!
