Great weekend in the mountains
Great weekend in the mountains
We had 12 people staying at Hensley Hollow for the weekend and the house and setting were great. Despite a huge snowfall a couple of days before our trip, the owners made sure the road/driveway were plowed for us and we had no problem getting up to the cabin. Plenty of space and beds for everyone to be comfortable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a beatiful mountain getaway- good for large groups or small.

My husband and our friends came to the lodge this past weekend and all I can say is WOW! This lodge is pretty amazing, it has everything you could possibly need, it is huge, well kept and tons of games just in case you run out of things to do. It's only about 20 mins away from Massanutten ski resort so it was perfect for us. We had a great time here and our dog loved running around in the open area. Thank you guys we will def be coming back soon.

Our Christmas Vacation In the Mountains
Our Christmas Vacation In the Mountains
We had a wonderful time in your home! We actually got snow! We ended up having to pull my moms car and my friends van up the mountain with our Jeep Rubicon! It was very interesting as it was a mix of sleet and snow! It did a great job, I must say! ANYWAY...I do believe that if you rent this place in the winter then you will definitely need a 4 WD!! The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean! The view was beautiful! We saw deer trek through the driveway! The pluses about this place were: The scenery, the privacy, the cleanliness, well stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, dishes for the most part, dish washing soap, the pool table, and the jacuzzis. It had a large selection of DVD's and VCR tapes. The negatives were: IT was loud! It took us a while to get used to the fact that when we were standing in the kitchen and heard something like a bowling ball rolling above, it was only the kids playing and nothing was going to fall on our heads! If you wanted to take a nap during the day, then you could hear the kids playing upstairs or even the adults playing board games at the table in the dining room. This was only a slight problem for us! We had to go to the Family Dollar store at the bottom of the hill to buy a large enough stock pot and skillet to feed our crew spaghetti as we had 6 big guys with us! There was a large pot but waay to big for spaghetti..more for crab legs or something. That wasn't a big problem either. There were alot of games but they were older ones and we couldn't play alot due to missing pieces so you may want to bring your own, like we did do to someone else's comment before we rented it. Just mentioning the little things that you may not think of. We also had to change about 4 light bulbs..which the bulbs were there for us! One last thing was that there isn't much of a flat ground around the house. We had to be very careful with the little ones when they were running around..especially sleigh riding so that they wouldn't fly over the hill. It had huge boulders around the driveway that if people sat on made great pics! Overall, this vacation was very memorable and relaxing and the house is absolutely beautiful! I would definitely rent again! Oh and it is WAY to big in my opinion for a romantic getaway! lol Thanks again for allowing us to rent your home and may you have a wonderful New Year!

Graduation weekend at Hensley Lodge
Graduation weekend at Hensley Lodge
Hensley Hollow Lodge provided everything we needed for a college graduation celebration with family and friends.There was plenty of hot water, space to move around, and entertainment for the children, especially in the game room. Since we did a lot of cooking,the kitchen came equipped with everything we needed, plus more. The fire pit was great for relaxing, and catching up with all the guests, even though we got rained out one night. You cannot change the weather. The site was quite accurate in describing the lodge, and it was well maintained and clean. Just a note, follow the directions to the lodge step by step,and you will have no problems finding it. We truly had a great experience, and would totally recommend Hensley Lodge. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Wonderful place to get away from it all, peace and quiet, secluded, great views. Great as a home base to go sightseeing, shopping, wine tasting etc. in the area, or to just hang out and relax. Provides all the comforts of home, spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen, gas BBQ, fire pit etc. No internet access, which would be useful for people who need to work on their vacation. The property is well-maintained and clean. The owner is responsive, well-organized and reliable, excellent communication! We have been here several times, we call it our "home away from home". We love it!

Family gathering made perfect
Family gathering made perfect
We joined various family members from TN, FL, MD, and DC at Hensley Hollow Lodge for a long weekend. With a total of 16 adults, the house was plenty spacious! Our weekend was spent sitting by the firepit with a fire going almost the entire time, playing pool and other games, cooking big meals, talking on the porches, sitting by the firepit laughing, sitting by the firepit reading, catch a trend here? The kitchen has what you need to feed lots of people--and I am picky on that front! There are 4 full bathrooms and even with many people trying to bathe at about the same time, we had no issues with hot water. The photos simply do not show how spacious and well-appointed this house really is--although I am not sure I could do a better job. We wandered to Luray Caverns (nice!), the Wisteria Farm and Vineyard, and hiking in the mountains. The Lodge can be seen from an overlook on Skyline Road (yes, that close) and the short jaunt to hike was a bonus. We also enjoyed getting sandwiches from West Main Market and Deli in Luray--wonderful gourmet sandwiches--for a picnic at the vineyard. If I had to change anything at all, I would add two or three long classic wooden picnic tables outside below the firepit for a big picnic style lunch or dinner outside. Although there is lots of outdoor furniture, I tend to like the all-at-one-monsterous-table setup for family gatherings. This would be a perfect place for anyone with a large extended family, a church retreat, or couples gathering. I am not positive but think it is (or could be with a small one-step ramp to main level) handicapped friendly--all living needs can be found on main level and lower level would also be accessible from below. If you have fewer people--no problem: just use 1 or 2 levels and it doesn't seem massive or empty. Enjoy! We certainly did!

This is the second year we have rented this house for our men's group for a weekend retreat. This place is fantastic!!! It is very spacious, comfortable, and well appointed. We have no complaints. Hopefully we'll use this again next year.
