Massanutten Resort house description

Reserve your family ski vacation now in the mountains. The snow has been great with all of the cold weather and the fresh snowfall.

Reserve your time now at The Retreat at Massanutten, an upgraded seven bedroom, three bath home, with over 3,300 square feet of living space. Tastefully decorated, The Retreat provides ample room for the family to gather, with an open kitchen and a large kitchen table upstairs, and a separate family room with full-size stand-up Nintendo video arcade with 11 different games, foosball, dart board, board games, kids games and toys, bookcase stocked with novels and books to read, two (65 and 55 inch) HDTV large screen television, and couch and loveseat downstairs. There is also plenty of parking with a two-car garage and additional room for up to six cars in the driveway.

The Retreat at Massanutten is nestled in the rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley, an area rich in Virginia history and easily accessible by Interstate I-81 or I-64. Guests may ski, fish, canoe, tube, bike, hike, hunt, or just relax and unwind to the soothing murmur of the Shenandoah River and cool mountain breezes. Other popular pastimes within easy driving distance include Civil War battlefields and museums, national parks, caverns, wineries, golf, tennis, horse back riding, and the many specialty and antique shops. Located within the Massanutten Four Seasons Resort, and with great views of the ski mountain from the front deck, The Retreat is a rewarding base for those who come to enjoy the many pleasures of Virginia's Valley of the Shenandoah.

The Retreat backs to the National Forest, with hiking paths and hunting within easy walking distance, and great views of the Massanutten Mountain and the Shenandoah Valley.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About: We are a family of nine, with seven young kids age 15 and younger.

                          Why Massanutten Resort:
                          While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and used the resort for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. We now live in Idaho but return often to The Retreat and Massanutten as one of our favorite vacation destinations. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added three additional Massanutten homes to our inventory and rented to more than 700 families. We hope you will enjoy The Retreat at Massanutten as much as our family and our guests have.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          During the summer, we purchase the 'pool pass' that allows our guests to use the private outdoor pool. This is much more private and avoids the hustle and bustle of the crowded indoor pools.
