About the property

5 Bedroom / 3.5 Bathroom Sleeps 10

Treat yourself to an escape from urban crowds and pressures, and come unwind at The Tree House, centrally located in Massanutten Resort, Virginia.

The Tree House is very warm and inviting, with comfortable furnishings offering a classic retro mid-century modern decor. But we have not forgotten modern wifi, 52' cable flat screen TV, Blueray DVD, stereo with aux cord, dishwasher, washer/dryer, air conditioning, hairdryer, iron, etc.

Main level offers a spacious great room and a dining area that seats 10 (a vacation home should offer a dining table that seats everyone!). Outdoor amenities incl a lovely screen porch, hot tub, Weber gas grill (propane provided), and expansive decking. It's a perfect way to end a day of skiing or golf!!

Sleeping for 10. The 5 bedrooms each sleep 2 and offer the following configuration: Top floor has 3 bedrooms: 2 queen rooms and 1 room with 2 XL twins; lower level offers 2 spacious king-bedded rooms. The beds are all made up with fresh linens and ready for you - we take these extra steps to make your stay be the best it can be!

The kitchen boasts anything a chef could need - offering both Keurig and drip coffee makers, toaster oven, blender, ice maker, and microwave. And we make it easy: house includes all the “under the kitchen sink” necessities. We keep stocked for our guests: dish soap, scrubbies/sponges, brillo pads, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, paper towels, trash bags, cleaning spray, coffee filters, tin foil, saran wrap, ziplocs, cooking spray, salt/pepper, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, and laundry detergent. This is in addition to linens, pillows, and extra blankets.

Ideally located in the resort, inside the guard gates less than 5 minutes from on-site resort amenities: zipline, indoor/outdoor waterpark (biggest on the East Coast!), terrific hiking, golf courses, driving range, horseback riding, mini golf, Euro bungee house, racecars, bumper cars, playgrounds, outdoor pool, summer concerts, skateboard park, skiing, year-round tubing hill, ice skating, and more!

We have purchased the Pool Guest Pass for the homeowners' outdoor pool. Not all homes offer this, so be sure to ask if this is an amenity you plan to use. Open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

One final benefit of renting from us is our 10-page "House Info Sheet." It details everything about the house, resort, restaurants, shopping, wineries, emergency locations and even where to buy the cheapest gas! Whether you have been to Massanutten or not, you will find all sorts of insider information on how to get the most out of your vacation!

We have established The Tree House as a premier vacation home. No detail has been overlooked. We do not rely on a management company with lots of homes, instead choosing to manage it ourselves and visiting monthly (lucky us - JMU alumni with 2 kids currently enrolled!) to make sure things remain fresh and in top-notch condition. We strive to make this the best vacation house you have ever stayed in! Come enjoy our little slice of paradise at Massanutten!

Wonderful choice!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we needed for a full family celebration for Thanksgiving! Jo met our needs in every way. The kitchen was one of the first I have rented that the knives and utensils did not need supplementation. Great quality. The lower level with 2 bedrooms and sitting area give great getaway for nursing moms and children. The first floor had wonderful room for all to be comfortable and any activity we desired. The driveway is steep, but you drive down to the garage and then a level walk in to haul luggage or groceries!

The petting farm was wonderful! The only disappointment was that when we went to "hike", trails were closed due to hunting season. However, a walk around the lake was just the ticket!

Thank you, Jo for a wonderful stay. We highly recommend the Tree House!

Love the Tree House!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Treehouse! The home provided ample room for our entire family & our relatives. We stayed for 5 days, each day after snowboarding, skiing, tubing, go-carting & waterpark adventures we enjoyed coming "home" to the Tree House for big family dinners around the table followed by games, movies and hot tub! The home is clean & well maintained. The neighborhood is quiet, scenic and within just a few minutes of all the fun at the resort! Looking forward to booking this house again in the future! Thanks for a lovely stay!

Most Awesome Dining Room Table!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house was perfect for our weekend getaway with three families. The location was great - so easy to get to the water park and ski resort. It was so clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, and our favorite part was the big, round dining table where we could all enjoy meals together. It's great to finally find a rental that can fit everyone around the dining room table. Jo was a great host, making check-in and check-out so easy and clear, and providing an extensive and extremely helpful house guide. We would absolutely stay here again and again!

Tree House Extraordinaire!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well in a word: WOW!!! Just got home from our four day getaway in Massanutten with our kids and grandbabies. We have stayed in many many homes over the years (mostly in the OBX of NC), for our family vacations and family reunions, and the Tree House makes the top of the list for one of the VERY nicest! Beautiful, stylish, clean and very well cared for - and lots of personal touches that truly made it a warm and inviting home (vs. like a sterile hotel room!) It is SO beautifully decorated - which as a Realtor & Professional Stager is a biggie for me. LOL, NOT pretty is NOT negotiable! 2nd and just as important - it was so well stocked with every thing you can think of, all the annoying every day things that you have to either pack or go purchase after arrival, were already provided! Like toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, coffee filters, hand soap, dish soap ... on and on. Then things that indeed are typically provided in any house like dishes, pots and pan, cutlery and so on, were all so lovely and top quality - not cheesy selections to just fill the need as is often the case. I can best sum it up by saying I felt like I was staying in a friends' home, vs. a rental. The owner was also very responsive from my first inquiry regarding the property before securing - to my last in thanking her after we left. And, OH YAH - she provided us with the handiest document that she has created, telling us about all that was available, things to do, places to eat and shop and so on - things you really appreciate from an insiders vantage point (vs. typical touristy info -- lol is that a word?) .

THANK YOU ma'am for a wonderful experience - we will be making Massanutten a new destination for our family, and one of your homes will be the first place we look!!

A great getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Treehouse for a family vacation. The house layout was great. Our adult children enjoyed the lower level rooms while the grandchildren occupied the upstairs bedrooms. The upstairs suite was perfect for us grandparents. The house was well stocked with paper products and hand soaps. It was nice not to have to travel with these items. The decor was inviting. The big dining room table was a nice gathering area. The children and the adults enjoyed the reasonably priced summer activities this mountain escape had to offer. Of course the waterpark was an added treat for all as well. The owner was very helpful and easily accessible. The house and the mountain were a beautiful and relaxing location.
