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 home, beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came from 5 states to celebrate Thanksgiving together. The Crow's Nest is a beautiful family friendly home and we could not have been happier with the home and the area. Lynn was so wonderful and responsive before and during our stay and more than accommodating with any questions and requests. The house is very clean and very private as it is nestled in the trees in a beautiful scenic area. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub on the deck when we we decided to kick back and relax after the holiday festivities.

Thank you Lynn for wonderful memories..we had a great time at the Crow's Nest!

Fantastic Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin: The house was great; working with Lynn was great; the weather was great. We were having a short family reunion and the house was just perfect. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, plenty of towels provided, a great kitchen, a grill and a hot tub. The large dining room table was perfect - we could be working on a jigsaw puzzle, and eat a meal at the same time! The house was very clean, smelled good, and the furniture very comfortable.

From the beginning, the home owner, Lynn, was so easy to work with. She responds quickly to emails/questions. And when we had a problem, she was very gracious to us.

Being at the Massanutten Resort was fun. We played mini golf and did the Escape Room (if you are into escape rooms, this one is worth doing - fun). Some of us went running every morning and the roads, while hilly, are well lit with relatively few cars. Some nice hikes (and geocaches) are nearby.

The house itself is quiet and laid out well. Big enough to hold everyone in one spot, yet offers places to get away and chill out. We had a wonderful time there and would definitely rent the house again if we were in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Kit. I'm so glad you had a wonderful reunion with your kids in our home. It was a pleasure having you and we hope you will be able to stay at our place again someday. Have a wonderful year ahead, Lynn

Fabulous Fall "Homecoming" to the Crow's Nest

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth visit to the Crow's Nest! Our group of seven look forward to our Fall Vacation at Massanutten, and the Crow's Nest always feels like home.

Lynn has added something new to this vacation home each year, so we always have a new added comfort. The Crow's Nest is spotless, has an everything-we-need kitchen, comfortable beds, TV's in every room, games, puzzles, and movies!

We love the two covered decks that overlook the trees and mountains, not into someone else's windows or backyard. There are plenty of outdoor seats, end tables and coffee tables, and two picnic tables. We use the gas grill every year!

There's always something to do while at the Crow's Nest! Some golfed, others shopped, and three generations went fishing. The grandkids love the water park, bungee jump, and bumper cars. Thanks, Lynn, we look forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this fabulous review. I have loved having your family stay at our home every October and look forward to having you again next October. You have always gone over and above with taking care of our home and keeping in touch. It's an honor that you, a wonderful military family, have chosen our home! See you next year. Lynn
