About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, spacious home w/ 2 stone fireplaces & views

*** The Aviary was completed in December 2014 -- book now to secure your vacation stay at the newest luxury rental home in Massanutten! ***

Enter this luxury home from the lower level deck into the spacious rec room with full-size pool table, a couch area with large screen, smart TV, a PS-4 game system, and a wet bar. This room was built for fun, and you'll find a closet stacked with board games for hours of entertainment.

On one side of the rec room is a large bunk room kids will love, featuring two sets of bunkbeds (4 beds total, 2 fulls and 2 twins). On the other side of the rec room is another large bedroom with 2 queen beds. A full bathroom off the rec room is shared by both bedrooms. A reading 'cave' for kids is tucked under the stairwell.

Head upstairs to the main room in the lodge, featuring a floor to ceiling stone fireplace (gas), 24' vaulted, gorgeous tongue and groove ceilings and beams, tons of sky high windows, and a kitchen with granite countertops, copper sink, and all new appliances, cookware, and dinnerware.

While the chef cooks, keep him company on the leather stools at the granite island, or lounge on the comfy sofas in front of the fire, then sit down all together as a big group at the huge farmhouse style dining table.

On either side of the main room of the lodge are two master bedrooms, each with vaulted ceilings, king beds and full baths. One features matching tongue and groove ceilings as in the main room, plus a huge all-tile master shower. The other full bath features a bath/shower combo.

Off the living room and off of each master bedroom, you'll find a large second floor deck with great views of the mountains, a sleeping bed, and a seating area inside a screened in porch with a huge stone fireplace (gas). Sit outside at night with the fireplace and enjoy the sounds of the mountain!

Off the kitchen, in the backyard, you'll find a covered patio with a large gas grill, and a wooded hill that kids will love to explore.

The house backs to a national forest, so there's nothing behind it but trees, deer, and adventures in the making.

This home is located inside the Massanutten Resort and very close to many of the activities and amenities -- you can be at most activities within 3 minutes by car.

We provide linens/pillows for all beds. When you arrive you will find they are all made up for you, ready to go, unlike many rental homes in the resort. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and serve meals -- just bring your food.

We also provide a pack-n-play and a high-chair in the house for those with babies (bring your own linens for the pack-n-play).

In the summer, we provide a Guest Pass so that our visitors can use the private Owners' Swimming Pool in the resort - just up the road.

Occupancy: 12 persons (all adults and children in the home count towards this limit). As our occupancy is limited to 12 persons at any time, we do not rent this home for parties or events.

Non-Smoking, No Pets Property: This is a non-smoking property. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property (outside or inside). And although we understand that many pet lovers travel with their furry friends, this home does not allow pets.

Minimum Age of Renter: Primary renter must be 27 years of age or older, and the majority of guests must be at least 25 years of age. A list of guests must be provided as part of the rental contract.

About Monica

The owners are natives of Texas and California, but have lived in Virginia long enough to fall in love with its mountains and wanted a second home to enjoy and share with friends and family.

Monica purchased this house in 2014

Why Monica chose McGaheysville

The owners love this lot, because it is so private at the end of a cul-de-sac. It has great views of the mountain in the front, and backs to a national forest.

What makes this house unique

The owners selected this floor plan for the home because of its beautiful main room with high, beamed ceilings, the fact that all 4 bedrooms are totally private from each other, and the great living, rec, and outdoor spaces that it provides for families and friends to gather, relax, and have fun.

Less than 5 minutes to almost any resort activity. Only a mile from the Fareways Restaurant/lounge, one of the golf courses, and only a little further to swimming (at Stonewall Terrace outdoor pool- summer), ski lodge, go-carts, mini-golf, tubing, zip lines, adventure park, ropes course, bumper cars, and tennis. The waterpark is about 7 minutes away. The Massanutten Resort is very close to Skyline Drive, Luray Caverns, vineyards, Lavender Farm, Harrisonburg (James Madison University) and lots of other hiking, touring and shopping opportunities. Charlottesville, Harper's Ferry, Lexington, Richmond, Roanoke, Staunton, and Washington D.C. are all within a 1-3 hour drive. So much to do, one visit just won't be enough!

average rating of 4.86 based on 50 reviews

Perfect for our group of 12. Beautiful, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing getaway for our group. We had eight adults and 4 children. The house is much larger than we expected. It fit all of us comfortably. The kitchen is stocked very well. We cooked a large dinner every night and had exactly what we needed for cooking and serving. We had movie nights and worked on puzzles. The kids loved the reading nook, pool table and games. They also did some exploring up the hill behind the house. We'll plan our timing a bit better next time we come back. It was the end of winter season (No snow tubing) and summer stuff wasn't open yet. We still found things to do but had to get a bit creative.

Beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Six of my friends celebrated my 40th Birthday and we had so much fun. The Aviary is beautiful and very spacious. A very open floor plan and enough room for everyone. We were able to go out on Sunday and take a 5 mile hike and the cold and wind wasn’t too bad. A lot of beautiful scenes. I would recommend this house to anyone. Thanks again Monica!

More than we expected

  • 5 of 5

Our visit December 24- December 28th 2017 -The house was beautiful. The tree was beautifully decorated. My family were very impressed with the location . We were in reach of whatever we wanted to do . We went tubing and it was the most fun we had in a long time as our family gathering. The bedrooms very spacious and the bathrooms were on point. OMG the kitchen was the best because we all were able to sit together to eat . Spacious kitchen where my daughter enjoyed because she loves to cook. The best Christmas we had in years. The Kitchen was fully stock only thing we had to bring was food and drinks. When I say fully stocked they had everthing down to the tooth picks. We truly enjoyed our stay and will be returning soon. I really love this place. We had blankets for the kids to wrap in, the reading nook under the stair case was a big HIT for my two granddaughters age 19 and 21.My family had the best time . And to top it off my son proposed to his fiancee' during this time and they celebrate their birthday a perfect setting . We had the best time. This place is GORGEOUS.

The picture shows well but seeing it in persons is better. I love this place. Indeed a place for family gathering. LOVE IT

Amazing Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this beautifully furnished clean house with everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen.

I especially enjoyed the view from the second floor and every day on every porch.. cozy indoor and outdoor fireplaces were the best!
