Luray cabin description

This comfortable, country home and cabin is located at the foot of a mountain overlooking the famous Shenandoah River known for its fishing and beauty.

CABIN AND MAIN FEATURES

The home has a large deck from which you witness the spectacular view by day of the Shenandoah River and Shenandoah Valley, which is surrounded by mountains full of forests. On the same deck by night you witness the starry night seeing the sky full of stars and planets! Also you can appreciate of all of these marvelous views while enjoy being in a nice hot tub. The home is locally known as “1 Little Vineyard by the River”, since it has a small and developing vineyard and as a result you will see this theme reflected inside the home through its decor. The kitchen, remodeled with marble counters, comes with most of what you need to cook or simply to serve prepared food you bring from area eateries. The living room has a nice flat screen TV and surround sound system where you and your kids can comfortably enjoy different shows or movies or simply play some nice music while you cook or enjoy conversations with your family and friends.

ACTIVITIES AND CONVENIENCES

Guests come to either rest or to enjoy the many activities the area offers, which include fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, mountain climbing, swimming or kayaking or canoeing. Those into the civil war will find many important historical sites or battle locations very close by. Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across from the home. The home is easily accessible from Washington DC or from Northern Virginia. Flights from anywhere in the country are usually reasonable so travel cost should not deter you. Those coming from outside the area will find it easy to travel to the area, since you have three major airports serving the area: Dulles International Airport, Washington Reagan Airport or Baltimore International Airport.

Come and enjoy the peaceful environment here at the home and at the same time have easy access to such notable places as the Smithsonian Museums, Capital, and the White House. Alternatively, you can simply drive down the famous and breathtaking Skyline Drive operated by the U.S. National Park Service, which is minutes from the home. The town of Luray is also an easy 15 minute drive from the home and there you will have access to shopping, restaurants and to the renowned Luray Caverns.

LAYOUT OF CABIN

The cabin sleeps up to 12 persons. For those wanting to know how private the bedrooms are, here is a description of cabin’s layout.

Keep in mind that the cabin is an A-frame cabin with a loft. The cabin has four bedrooms; two bedrooms have total privacy with doors, one that is the loft and offers some privacy and a smaller bedroom with no doors and therefore with little privacy. Here is a further description.

On the main floor is the master bedroom with a door that closes making the bedroom private. It has a queen size bed. You will find the master bathroom right in front of the master bedroom at the end of the hallway.

Also, on the main floor is a smaller bedroom that is between the A-frame portion of the home and the living room and kitchen area. It has three twin size beds, which are ideal for children, teens or single adults. This bedroom does not have a door.

The bedroom in the loft does not have doors, but yet the area is relatively private, since you have to be on the top floor to have clear view of the main bedroom. The loft has a full-size bed and a queen size futon.

The basement is finished and it has a private bedroom with a queen size bed and it has a door that closes with a living area right outside with a couch that converts into a full-size bed. The basement is not closed in, but rather is at the level of the driveway. It has its own private entry and sliding glass doors. So it’s not claustrophobic.

The kitchen is a large kitchen with all the basics provided for doing basic cooking (micro, dishwasher, fridge, dishes, pots and silverware).

The main living room is next to the kitchen and there is where you will find one full bathroom. The living room has a fireplace, flat screen TV (50') with cable and surround sound system.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I grew up on a ranch in a rural part of California. Traveling often to Washington DC I found it was a perfect place to stay in touch with nature and to be in a peaceful environment far from the busy urban world. Yet I liked having access to Washington DC, which has all the entertainment one can possibly have from any large city.

                  Why the Owner Chose Luray:
                  I chose this place because it is full of nature and beauty, which it affords access to the nation’s capital. Whether one wishes to take it easy and just let time stop or be active in water sports or hiking, this place is ideal for both. I cannot think of a more beautiful home for getting away from it all!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across the home. The area was recently designated a national landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior because of its beauty and historical importance. In particular, a favorite activity is to take the Skyline Drive, which is operated by the National Park Service. Alternatively, visit the Luray Caverns, which is just a 15 minute drive from the home. Shopping and restaurants are just 15 minutes from the home.
