Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8, max 6 adults)

Fantastic house for a family or two to enjoy the area. Our resort is great for tons of family fun. From hiking, bicycling, and fishing, to golfing, high ropes adventures, and indoor water park fun. Come and enjoying the outdoors. Our house is within walking distance to a park for kids, complete with a sweet little fishing pond.

Summertime offers chairlift rides, zip line tours, frisbee golf, fling golf (super fun), fantastic hiking, world-class mountain biking, golf, motorcycle touring, children's programs, canoeing and tubing trips on the Shenandoah River, and more.

The cottage is located at Massanutten Resort near Harrisonburg, Virginia. It has both easy access to the ski area and to the water park. We have wireless internet access and a computer for guest use. We are happy to advise you about our favorite local things to do including restaurants, outdoor activities, and shopping.

Massanutten Cottage has three bedrooms and two full baths. Upstairs, there is a queen-size bed in one bedroom with a small couch. In the other upstairs bedroom is a full-size bed with a full-sized futon. The downstairs bedroom has a queen.

The cottage has a full kitchen and all the pans and utensils that you may require. A large combined dining and living area makes for a comfortable area for all to relax. The house is equipped with 3 cable televisions (living room, upstairs queen room, downstairs bedroom) and a DVD player (living room). The TV in the living room is a flat screen and is equipped with Roku for streaming. We have an electric wood stove in the fireplace that adds to the ambiance and keeps the room toasty warm. We don't allow real fires in the fireplace anymore. The house is immaculate and very comfortable.

Our guests have truly enjoyed the use of our hot tub. A 4 person hot tub graces our back porch overlooking the woods. It is great for unwinding after a cold winter day or a day of hiking or biking. Please note that there are quiet hours posted for the hot tub, as we have full-time neighbors.

We have had great feedback from our previous guests and enjoy opening our comfortable vacation home to others when we are not using it. We are able to be a little bit more choosy about our renters because of our reputation. Our max number of adults is 6, but we can accommodate groups of 8 when children are involved. We prefer renters that enjoy and respect the quiet neighborhood in which our house is located. We do not condone the use of our house for parties and raucous gatherings. We also prefer that our guests have no more than three cars in the driveway. We hope that you will enjoy the cottage as much as our family and repeat guests do.

Please bring your own linens or ask for rental of ours for an additional $50 (no laundering required).

About Amanda Brookman

We are the Brookmans. We have two grown children and a THird Grader between us! All of us love our time at Massanutten, and we get there as often as possible. Our permanant home is across the mountain in Orange County, Virginia. We purchased our home in 2002 when we discovered what a jewel Massanutten Resort was. We had often skied there as a good local mountain, but when we discovered the mountain biking right on the property, we were sold on the place! In fact, we were riding in Colorado, and met a man who said his favorite place to ride was a little resort called Massanutten! We were floored, but we completely agreed. We bought the house with the intent to use it ourselves as much as possible. The decision to rent was and effort to offset some of the costs of the home. We are happy to continue to own it, rent it, and share it with our family and friends. We are constantly upgrading and updating as financing allows. Repeat renters often find many changes in between stays. Some of our more recent projects have been redoing the stairway, repainting the kitchen cabinets, and remodeling the downstairs bathroom! We have many more projects on the horizon!

Why Amanda Brookman chose McGaheysville

Our house is located just inside the gates of the resort. We love the location of the house because it is quick and easy to get in and out. We are about a mile from the water park and 3 miles to the ski area. The neighborhood is quiet with little traffic, and we are walking distance to some short trails, a fishing pond, and the playground.

What makes this house unique

We try to make the house very comfortable for our guests. Our beds have quality bedding, our kitchen has needed supplies, and our home is spotless. We also love sharing all the area has to offer as well. We give lots of advice to our guests about local activities. At the house we have a computer that has internet access and we also have wireless access for your own computer. We do our best to accommodate folks. Because most families like access to pools in the summer, we have purchased a guest pool pass that is good for admittance to the property owners' pool with a $5 per person fee (free for children under 5).

Perfect setting for a low key getaway

Our family gathered from up and down the East Coast for our daughter's JMU graduation. The Cottage was a perfect place to relax between events and celebrate. Would absolutely recommend this spot to others!

Clean, great location! Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was close to the water park and easy to get to local restaurants. We had two families of 3 and had the perfect amount of space. Owner was very responsive and place was very clean.
