About Kelly McGrory

We are Kelly, William and Trex. We live in Southeast Pennsylvania where we work as a speech therapist, tech support manager, and faithful pooch. We love the outdoors, and have a great appreciation for nature. We love to share the peace, tranquility, and romance of our cabin in the Shenandoah area. We hope you enjoy it and make happy memories for yourselves. Happy Trails, Kelly and William (and Trex too!)

Kelly McGrory purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Kelly McGrory chose Central Virginia

We chose to purchase this property, with hopes that we would relocate to the Charlottesville, VA area for its outdoor lifestyle. Our jobs keep us in Pennsylvania, but we enjoy 6-7 trips to Romance Ridge per year to take in the beauty and serenity of the mountains and hike the trails in the Shenandoah National Park.

What makes this cabin unique

Romance Ridge is located at the doorstep of the Shenandoah National Park, and is equidistant between University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and James Madison University in Harrisonburg. With two ski resorts close by at Masannutten and Wintergreen, it's not easy to choose! There are numerous, breweries and vineyards in the area, along with antique shoppes, wildlife management areas, and country roads to explore and take in the undeveloped scenery. The Shenandoah Valley is rich with history, from Civil War trails to James Madison's Monticello, James Monroe's Ash Lawn, and James Madison's Montpelier. No matter your destination, we are sure you will enjoy the peace, solitude, and serenity of the cabin itself. Enjoy your stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Romance Ridge was perfect! We made the trip to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and could not have asked for better. It was a perfect, relaxing weekend. Thank you!

Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our Post Wedding Anniversary in this lovely cabin. We were praying that it won't snow during that weekend so we can enjoy what the outdoors can offer. But I guess the good God has other plans for us. During that weekend, there was a snow storm! But the cabin made us feel at home. And staying indoors on our 2nd day was great. We loved the wood burning smell from the fireplace, the tub and the view was gorgeous! Imagine trees covered in snow! On our 1st day, went out at a local restaurant & antique shops. This trip felt like a couples' retreat to reconnect, to recharge & to relax. Will definitely come back here again in summer! Thank you Kelly!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly the get away that my boyfriend and I needed. It was so quiet and peaceful! We enjoyed the hot tub, amazing view and the wood burning fireplace. The inside and outside of the cabin are absolutely gorgeous and set the mood for total relaxation. We did not want to leave and will be planning a return stay. Thank you so much!

Beautiful cabin on a beautiful property.

This is a charming cabin with modern conveniences! We loved our time spent on the deck, in the hot tub and I enjoyed cooking while being able to see the view from the kitchen! Can't wait to return!

Turkey Ridge Road is a state maintained dirt road. While not necessary to drive an all-wheel vehicle, it may be easier in inclement winter weather. There are black bear who inhabit this area of Virginia. Please do not leave food or trash outside the cabin, as this will attract various pests from the woods. While black bears are an exciting siting, we do not wish to create a pest environment.
