Luray cottage description

Once you get here you won't want to leave the Knotty Pine...maybe it's from exhaustion because you just had fun canoeing, hiking, fishing, golfing, or had some other outdoor adventure, or maybe you don't want to leave until you etch the peaceful moments in your mind as you are relaxing in the Knotty Pine's outdoor six-person hot tub viewing the stars and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This three bedroom cottage with two full baths can accommodate six people comfortably, & up to eight people using the new futon. Dine inside or outside: There is a fully equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, and dining area, two couches (one a futon) in the living area with a woodstove insert in the fireplace. This is a great place to get cozy on cold nights, or on nice summer evenings sit outside on the large deck, cook on the grill, have a fire in the fire pit and listen to the sounds of nature and the Shenandoah River running, if the water's not low. Bring your IPod or MP3, & great sound w/ Bose SoundDock.


Enjoying the Shenandoah River....: A canoe and four tubes are available for you to play with in the river, in the summer. The Shenandoah River Outfitters is just 1 mile from the cottage, if you need a shuttle for the canoe, or need to rent more canoes. Walk out the door of the Knotty Pine & you can hike the George Washington National Forest. It's a short 10 minute walk down hill to the river, or drive, plenty of free parking. Walk for more than a mile along the river on George Washington National Forest property from #8 to #9, stop & fish, or just sit & listen to the sounds of the river. Enjoy all this area has to offer, but also relax and do nothing at the Knotty Pine Cottage.

Exploring Luray.....: Just 10 miles from the Knotty Pine to Luray Caverns, Luray Airport, & Caverns Country Club Resort Golf Course, (there are many other Golf courses in the area too.) Luray Zoo has exotic animals & a petting zoo which is a favorite with children. Stop by the Art Warehouse in Luray. Visit Shenandoah National Park & drive Skyline drive. Hike in the park to see waterfalls & wildlife. Appalachian Advantures offers ATV's & Jet Ski's rentals, guided fishing trips, hunts & more. Fort Valley Stables offer guided trail rides, & is only a 20 minute drive from the Knotty Pine. Sheandoah Speedway is a 30 min. drive, but worth it for the racing fans in your family! There are endless activities offered in Luray: concerts, art shows, etc..check the Visitors Guide and/or with the Chamber of Commerce, of which I am a member.

Luray is the Cabin Capital of Virgina: I had a wood sign at my home 'The Knotty Pine' before I ever considered renting it out as a vacation rental. I started renting 'The Knotty Pine Cottage' to guests before Page County became the Cabin Capital of Virginia. I think somehow this was all in the cards....I love the Shenandoah River, the Mountains & enjoy helping others have a great experience when they come to the Luray area; by sharing my home & providing them with a comfortable & fun place to stay! Welcome to the KNOTTY PINE & LURAY, VIGINIA!

                          Location

                          Car: Necessary

                          The Knotty Pine is 10 miles north west of Luray (apx. 15 min. drive). The Knotty Pine is up a steep, unpaved, hill off South Page Valley Rd. & about 1 mile before you come to the Shenandoah River Outfitters. We maintain the road, so most times a 2 wheel drive car can get to the Knotty Pine, however in bad weather, it may be necessary to have 4 wheel drive. If considering a canoe trip, keep in mind, you will need a vehicle to haul a canoe, tiedowns or bungies to secure it. A shuttle another 'pick up' or 'put in' can be arranged @ Shenandoah River Outfitters if you have only 1 vehicle. They shuttle canoes only -NO TUBES. You may want to check with the Staff @ Shenandoah River Outfitters, about river conditions before you go down the river!

                          It is a short, 10 min. walk to the Shenandoah River, #8, public boat landing.Free Parking. A mile of George Wash.National Forest property along the river, to walk, fish,swim or ride the river with the tubes. Get a fishing licence on line from the Fish & Game Comm. I am happy to help you plan a river trip, using the Knotty Pine's canoe & tubes, provided for guests. Also you may want to plan a river trip with the Shenandoah River Outfitter's. Reserve several canoes/tubes, & add on to meals that they have planned - Lunch on the river - Then back to SRO for Steak & Music, & 1 mile back Knotty Pine.

                          Of course Luray Caverns is a big hit, as well as, fishing, & hiking in Shenandoah Nat. Park or Goerge Washingtion Nat. Forest.

                          Other Activities: Art Gallery Warehouse, Theater, Luray petting zoo, Antiquing, horse back riding, tour a winery, take a scenic drive on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park; or just relax, get a massage, soak in the Knotty Pine's deluxe Hot tub!

                          Golf: Luray Caverns Golf Course, is close to Luray Caverns & the Knotty Pine Cottage. This beautiful golf course is surrounded by mountains!

                          There are many other beautiful mountain view golf courses in the surrounding area for the avid golfer to try out as well.

                          Ski: Massanutten Resort offers Skiing & other Winter Sports. Also check out the Indoor Water Park! About a 45 min. fr. KPC; just south of the town of Shenandoah.

                          Skiing at Bryce Resort is closer to an hour drive, past historic Orkney Springs.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1987

                          About the owner: I came to Luray, Virgina looking for a place to live because I got a teaching job nearby. I found so much more than the Knotty Pine, as it was named long before it was ever considered to be a vacation rental. My family helped my buy & fix up the Knotty Pine as I lived & worked there for 18 years. I enjoyed many adventures with my life long friends from the Outfitters, who adopted me as family too. I miss living there but enjoy visiting now & hope to return living there someday with Chuck. Until then, I wish many guests a wonderful vacation at the Knotty Pine.

                          Why the Owner Chose Luray:
                          I first arrived at the Shenandoah River Outfitters, & knew I wanted to live in that area. The people I met working there were great, & they offered me a job too. I love the outdoors, paddling or floating the river, hiking the mountains, and enjoy the peacefulness of the woods. I looked at many cabins, but finally decided on the Knotty Pine, because there is a beautiful view, it is a short walk to the river, & it is on the edge of Page Valley Estates, with the George Washington National Forest just out the door.
