Property description

Stylish and hip, The Nut is nestled in “the kettle” of Massanutten Resort, surrounded by mountains offering privacy and serenity. Treat yourself to an escape from urban crowds and pressures, and come unwind in Virginia's Beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

Our cozy home features a main level great room with floor to ceiling windows, gourmet kitchen, spacious dining area, TV nook, and deck overlooking woods with babbling creek. The three bedrooms (linens and bath towels incl) offer the following configuration: main-level, king-bedded master (1 K) and two upstairs bedrooms (1Q and 2T).

The upper deck has seating for 6 and a Weber grill (propane provided). The lower deck features a huge outdoor hot tub completes your visit. With views of the slopes, it's a perfect way to end a day of skiing and tubing!! Comfortably seats 6 adults.

Our home is very warm and inviting, with comfortable furnishings offering a classic retro mid-century modern decor. We have had a great time traveling to estate sales for authentic and whimsical pieces that continue to delight our guests. But we have not forgotten modern conveniences...free internet, cable flat screen TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer, air conditioning, DVD player, iHome, etc.

The kitchen boasts anything a chef could need - offering both Keurig and drip coffee makers, toaster oven, blender, ice maker, microwave, and Henckel knives. And we make it easy: house includes all the “under the kitchen sink” necessities*. Just pack your clothes and food, bring a book, and you are all set. Don't forget your bathing suit for the hot tub!

Ideally located in the resort, inside the guard dates at the top of the mountain, less than 5 minutes from on-site resort amenities: skiing, year-round tubing, zipline, ice skating (new!) spa, indoor/outdoor waterpark (biggest on the East Coast!), terrific hiking, golf courses, horseback riding, skateboard park, fishing, mini golf, bungee house, racecars, playgrounds, outdoor pool, summer concerts and festivals, etc.

We have over 100 positive traveler reviews! Please read them - folks love the attention to detail and excellent customer service we provide our guests. We have set this up to be our vacation home as well as a vacation rental. 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 The Nut!!

*We believe in making it very easy for you to get away. One component is not having to pack all the boring stuff. So we keep stocked for our guests: dish soap, scrubbies/sponges, brillo pads, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, paper towels, napkins, trash bags, cleaning spray, coffee filters, tin foil, saran wrap, ziplocs, spices, cooking spray, salt/pepper, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, and laundry detergent. This is in addition to linens, pillows, bath towels, and extra blankets.
