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 Shenandoah Valley

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.

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!

What a special place with something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous home. Everything was in place and in working condition. We choose this area over staying in Harrisonburg for JMU parents weekend and made the right decision. The drive into the campus was a bit more then we liked but the home more than made up for it. All details were cared for and the home was extremely clean upon arrival. Would highly recommend and will consider staying again next year for Parents Weekend!

Beautiful home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Crow's Nest for a week to use as a home base for hiking Shenandoah National Park. It was a perfect place to come home to after a long day on the trail. The hot tub was fabulous and the house had everything we needed. The Massanutten resort setting was definitely a perk and we made use of the water park and mini golf course to give the kids a break from hiking one day. Restaurants, grocery stores and other amenities were very convenient. Although we didn't need anything, the owner checked in on day 2 of our stay, which was very nice. Thank you, Lynn!

week in the Shenandoah mountains

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, comfortable and well appointed home in the Massanutten resort. The owner provided every comfort imaginable. The home was clean and rustic with beautiful views and secluded in the mountainside. We had a great time enjoying the surrounding amenities in the resort and would definitely come back this way again. Great house!
