Wonderful getaway retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate my 30th birthday weekend and had a blast. The cabin itself is gorgeous and very spacious with tons of amenities. Some cosmetic work needs to be done around the house but nothing that hindered our good time. After skiing and snowboarding one day we went to the ski lodge at night where a live band was playing country and rock cover songs- big dance floor as well! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to host a big party/getaway/reunion. Thank you Sara and Brian!

We absolutely LOVED staying here!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on our family vacation! Plenty of space for the entire family to enjoy, whether it was pool tournaments, soaking in the hot tub after hours of sight seeing or playing cards on the HUGE dining room table. The beds were comfortable and the lodge was well kept. The only slight issue we had was running out of hot water during showers (expected when you have so many people). We would definitely stay here again and recommend it for any kind of gathering/get away! 😊

Beautiful house.

  • 4 of 5

13 adults went on our trip to Massanutten. No ice maker in refrigerator/freezer. The bedroom with the 2 beds and the bunk bed is only accessible from the master bedroom. Great room for a couple with children though. Basement has a communal 1/2 bathroom with a toilet, no shower. Neighbors are retired and the back of the house sits on a hill, a large group of people created a lot of noise outside because your voices carry in the valley. The neighbors called the police on us for noise on a Friday night at 10pm. There are quiet hours. We didn't have a radio on, we were just enjoying the hot tub and fire pit. Massanutten Police are very strict. Doesn't seem like a place where large parties can hang out outside after dark. Based on our experience we would not return to Massanutten, but would recommend the house for small families or an elderly group. Communication with owners was good.

Owner's Response: These travelers came to Massanutten with little respect for our house rules or the rules of Massanutten Resort. Their group had a bad experience with the Massautten Police Department for that reason. We received three phone calls from the police department, going on midnight, regarding the groups noise level. When asked to quiet down they were argumentative and belligerent, cursing at officers and clearly intoxicated. Incidents like this rarely happen in the 10 years we've been hosting groups and if police are called, most guests are respectful and apologetic Unfortunately this review has no bearing on the quality of our vacation rental home but rather a review based on poor choices and belligerent behavior.
