Shenandoah house description

Clean & Comfortable! This property is truly special.

VRBO 'BEST VALUE' : River Views

The Riverhouse sits on a quiet, wooded stretch of the Shenandoah River. It's inside a rustic, gated community on it's own private lane.


Located just 15 minutes from historic Middleburg, Virginia, this cottage retreat on 8 acres of property is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors and enjoys real privacy.

Turn Key: We provide all fresh linens and towels, paper & plastic goods, spices, condiments, kitchen ware, etc.

Feel free to use the washer/dryer. Your getaway should be carefree!

You'll truly escape. Blue herons, bald eagles, owls, wild turkeys, jays and cardinals call The Riverhouse home too.
Don't let the dirt road fool you, this is a private, gated community and the home sits far back on a secluded lane.

Just over an hour from D.C./ 45 minutes from Dulles Airport.

Enjoy our community's beautiful swimming pool during summertime, but you may be all alone, as the few locals who live here tend to favor the river.

In The Heart of Wine Country: Vineyards and wineries host seasonal festivals, tours, tastings and live music. Families, parties & children welcome. Many are pet friendly too.

Host a gals weekend, summer vacation, quiet get-away, family gathering or a Thanksgiving celebration. Grab our kayaks, canoe or tubes and find the waterfall and rope swing near the community swimming pool. Sink into the cozy couches and steal an afternoon nap. At night, sit by the fire pit under the stars.

Romantic for two...too.

The cottage has a quaint loft, sunroofs, ceiling fans and two decks overlooking the Shenandoah River. Spring, summer, winter or fall--when the leaves are on fire-- this spot is a simple slice of heaven. Many repeat clients, so book early, especially during peak and holiday weeks.

                      Why the Owner Chose Shenandoah:
                      We can breathe here! No traffic, no neighbors and a world away from DC. We bought this 2nd home for our family and children. We're now putting 3 through college!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The cottage is also 20 minute drive to the Appalachian Trail. A hiking paradise! Middleburg offers great boutique shopping. From fine clothing & jewelry, to fancy toiletries, gourmet meats and take-home meal, visit this lovely town on the way to some of the wineries. There's even a special store for the furry member of your family. Berryville is a step back in time. Grab an ice cream cone or a latte.
