Strasburg cabin description
Welcome to a wonderful waterfront home situated within feet of the Shenandoah River. It is located only 10-15 minutes from Strasburg/81/66 and is situated at the end of a gravel road that parallels the river. You will have a feeling of complete seclusion and privacy because the house is surrounded by trees on 3 sides and the river on the other.
When you stay at our fully-furnished, well-kept home, you will find many conveniences for a romantic getaway for two or a vacation for the whole family. Inside the cabin you will find 2 bedrooms (2 queens), 1 bath, a loft above with a 2 single mattresses with a TV/DVD for the kids, W/D, and a fully equipped kitchen. Outside on the largest deck there is a 3-person swing and a 6-person table overlooking the river.
You and your guests will have your own private access to the river, a hammock to relax on and an outdoor fire pit to enjoy s'mores if you like. Also, a Canoe, and many tubes and rafts for you to enjoy the river, and yes, you can see the bottom! The river is crystal clear, bring your fishing poles!
Strasburg is known for it's pottery, antiques, civil war history, and breathtaking views, and if you desire to visit downtown historic Strasburg, there are many attractions to explore and great restaurants to dine in. (Crystal Caverns, Stonewall Jackson Museum, The Hotel Strasburg restaurant, and multiple Antique Shops)
**Please bring your own linen, thank you**
Be careful driving, you will see deer, rabbits, turtles among other animals walking across the road. Have a great time!

This comfy cabin is right on the river - Sept. was a great! time to be there - water was clear and easy to paddle and fish.. The owner to great to deal with - accomodating and very responsive via text, email, and voice- fair and concerned for your comfort and privacy. Place was clean and well cared for. The accommodations were great and as described. Plenty of kitchen wares, two good queen beds plus a loft with 2 singles (bring sheets, towels), good appliances, wifi, cable. We enjoyed our stay very much and wish we could have stayed even longer. Lots of wildlife to see from the decks and river, private location but not too far away from town. Highly recommended and thanks Bill!

We were looking for a riverfront cabin near our grandchildren for our vacation. This property was everything we had hoped for and more! The owner was extremly helpful as we made our plans. The kids were able to visit us every day and thought they had their own private playworld. They loved the river and all the river toys. They loved the trampoline, swings, horseshoes and volleyball net. They loved cooking out on the grill and eating at the big table on the deck. We loved the quiet mornings on the deck with a cup of coffee! Enjoying the beauty of this area with our grandchildren was priceless.

awesome place to stay
awesome place to stay
This is a wonderful place to stay!! We enjoyed the tubes and kayaks!! So much to do without leaving the house which is great!! Beautiful view of river from the porch.. And did I mention sitting on back porch in morning watching fish jump out of the water and turtles laying on rocks.. Our 4 teenagers had a great time.. Going down river in kayaks and seeing the mountain views were spectacular! They said they miss it already. We would definitely stay here again!! Bill made sure our stay was wonderful!! Great person to deal with...

We spent a nice warm Thanksgiving at the cabin. The house was clean and well stocked. Spent the evenings around the fire pit over looking the river - very peaceful. The front yard is huge and the kids loved running around. Large decks over looking the river are great. We plan to return in the summer to swim and tube. Will recommend to our friends.

Everything about this place was perfect! The house was clean and comfortable. The amount of deck space outside was more than enough. The yard was large, well kept and private, but did not feel too secluded. The location is convenient for exploring all sorts of tourist attractions such as Skyline Drive or Washington D.C., or just sitting back and relaxing. We enjoyed it, our dogs enjoyed it. We could not have asked for a better vacation. Thank you so much!

The Perfect Getaway

We've been using VRBO for several years, and I would rate this home as one of our favorites...clean, quiet, and very private. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be! There's all kinds of toys at the house for playing in the river and on the grounds, but we spent a lot of time just enjoying the screened porch and deck overlooking the river. There was a festival in Strasburg the first weekend , plus we visited some of the many fine wineries in the area, went to vintage car races, and won a little money at a casino about an hour away. It was a perfect week and we look forward to visiting again.

We enjoyed this cabin had everything that we needed. It was very clean. Very private away from it ALL. I am so grateful that you allowed me to bring my two Big German Shepherds, Sturm and Fantom. They lived in the river for 3 days they love swimming. Had a few days of bad weather it rained but that was ok still enjoyed being there. Slept so good. We will return again.

This was the most relaxing vacation that we have every had. The house was the perfect size for us and the yard was very large. Our dog Molly loved it! Great access to the river, we were able to go tubing, sit by the river and use the fire pit. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. This is the perfect location, very secluded but close enough to town and other attractions. Thank you for sharing your rivercabin with us!

We had a great time at this lovely cabin. Nice location, very quiet and secluded. It was very well represented in the description but the pictures really don't do it justice. It is perfect for a family vacation and we loved that our dog could join us for the fun! It was very clean too and had any amenities we could have needed, thankful for the wifi for occasional contact with the outside world. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had prior to, and after booking. We all loved the river, the views and the the stars at night. Close to a lot of historic sites and Skyline Drive is just a short drive away. We really enjoyed the small town atmosphere. Very relaxing vacation!
