There are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen (including icemaker, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, crock-pot, etc.), a washer/dryer, and fireplace*. Linens, towels and soap are providedǂ. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.
On the large deck, enjoy the hot tub and fire cauldron (wood supplied) with tables and chairs, and both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.)
Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive. Find local attraction and event info on our Rainbow View Cabin website: http://rainbowviews.wordpress.com
We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.
Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: The last mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.
We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. We are sorry that we had to implement this fee, but people were not abiding by the previous policy. If you don't advise and pre-pay for pets, we will deduct the fee during the refund of your security deposit. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.
We welcome well behaved children. You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .
Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.
In winter 4WD or AWD is required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm.
ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.
* Fireplace is for ambiance only. Continual use will cause bedrooms to become cold. It is for burning Duraflame-type logs only, and only one at a time. During cold weather, one log (a 3 hour burn) is furnished for each day of your stay. For a longer burn than that you should bring your own. (Due to past issues, burning regular wood is allowed only in the cauldron on the deck. Filling the cabin with smoke may result in your security deposit being withheld.)
ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 4), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming. We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and retirees. Please advise us at the time of your request and please be honest about your status. We have had issues in the past. Please access and like our Facebook page - Rainbow View Cabin - as that is where we post info about local restaurants specials, events, info about Shenandoah Park and any discounts we are offering on the cabin.
There is a County leash law. We also expect you to pick up all droppings and will adjust the deposit refund if not done. Please advise us and pay the pet fee if you are bringing a dog(s.) If you don't and we find evidence that a dog was on site, we will deduct the pet fee from your deposit....moreless
A Duraflame log (3 hr burn) is provided for each night of your stay in cold weather. For longer burns, you will need to bring more. Due to past issues, burning regular wood is permitted only outside....moreless

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We live just down the road a piece.
Why the Owner Chose Front Royal: We've lived in this little rural mountain community for 30 years, and we've long admired the view from this particular property, so when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we jumped at the chance!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: From the world's largest concentration of wild trillium to the abundant wildlife, whether sledding the hills, or just whiling away a lazy afternoon at the winery, we always enjoy each and every day on this mountain. Now you can also enjoy the view from the expanded deck and the hot tub.
