Property description

The best log cabin in Jewell Hollow, Luray Virginia and yes it is ADA compliant! Located near the peak of the Shenandoah Mountains/Skyline Drive, “A Buck’s Peak” is a quiet hide-away that accommodates peace and tranquility to help you and your family relax and “re-charge” the batteries. Four master bedrooms – 3 king beds and 1 queen, “A Buck’s Peak” sleeps 10 (with built in bunk beds) and brags the best views on the mountain. One jet-soaking tub in the upstairs master bedroom and the queen bedroom has an ADA compliant bathroom and shower. Both basement bedrooms have full baths! Hot tub (8-person, 120 jets), 55-inch Sony television with DIRECTV, stainless steel appliances, DVD with DVD library, screened-in porch, jet bathtubs upstairs, and a game room complete with a shuffleboard table, dart board and a Sony Play Station 1 (with games) are just some of the amenities that will ensure you and your family enjoy your stay. We have a super large fire-pit and wood is provided. Additionally, we have two grills; one charcoal and one propane gas (propane is provided; charcoal is not). Kitchen has granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and plates to cook your meal and enjoy it! Sure, you can do your laundry at the cabin - full washer and dryer units are located next to the game rooms. Wi-fi/internet is NOT available; some guests use a cellular device with personally-owned hotspot - dependent on your cellular carrier. Verizon seems to be best. Pets are certainly welcome and we have a fenced in pet run for exercise. The pet fee is $35 per pet up to two pets – add $15/pet after two. Gravel road takes you up the mountain to this quiet hide-away. Four-wheel-drive highly recommended between Thanksgiving and April; front wheel drive the rest of the year is recommended. Wounded Warriors should ask about a special discount. Discounts are offered to either military (retired, active, Reservists) or teachers – ask for your discount up front to figure pricing; please do not expect more than one discount - either military or educator (both are equal). Also, please do not request discount after first communication - tell me up front you are military or an educator; thanks. Have a wonderful stay and please leave feedback at www.vrbo.com/438245 to help us make “A Buck’s Peak” the best Luray cabin. Book today at: RENTBUCKSPEAK@yahoo.com.

Right in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountain, A Buck's Peak is less than five miles off of the Skyline Drive. Biking, antiquing, wine tasting, zip-lining, Yogi Bear Park, Luray Caverns, whiskey tours, ATVing and the coolest movie theater on the East Coast are just a few of the attractions. Recommend you partake in Wine Tasting at both Gadino Cellars (Washington, VA) and Chester Gap cellars in Rhappahanock. Enjoy the antique shops in Washington, Virginia as well as Luray, Virginia. The Luray Movie Theater is a refurbished mansion that shows first-run movies. Finally, you can simply enjoy the 120 jet, 8-person hot tub on the log cabin's huge deck!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 'A Buck's Peak' is owned by a military family. However, they lease the property to a limited liability company to run all rental business. Your host for your stay at 'A Buck's Peak' is Ey Man Enterprises, LLC. Thank you for choosing 'A Buck's Peak.' We look forward to your review after you stay! Please review the cabin after your stay at www.vrbo.com/438245. Friend us on Facebook by searching for "A Buck's Peak."

Why the Owner Chose Luray:
A Buck's Peak resides in the Cabin Capital of Virginia. It is a brand new log cabin in the middle of nowhere but close enough to enjoy the fun stuff like Luray Caverns, Arrowhead Lake (3 miles away), canoeing and rafting on the Shenandoah River, zip-lining, wine-tasting, hiking (yes, you can hike right outside the cabin up to Skyline Drive), antiquing, all types of biking, great restaurants and nature enjoyment. This cabin will take your breath away with all of the accommodations from a super hot tub to a fully equipped kitchen to a large screen t.v. and incredible game room.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is one of a VERY few ADA compliant log cabins in the Virginia's Cabin Capital, Luray, Virginia! Additionally, you can tell people you stayed in 'the holler!' A Buck's Peak is located in what Luray citizens refer to as Jewell Hollow or 'the holler.' We offer either a military discount or an educator discount (not both). Please tell me up front that you are an educator or an active/retired/reservist/former military member. This cabin is quiet and private - all of your distractions are removed; no internet option, cell service is practically non-existent as you are enjoying the middle of nature!
