"We had a delightful visit to Front Royal for a nearby wedding. "The Nest" was the perfect comfortable home away from home for the 2 of us (although the house has 3 BR), tucked into a tranquil forested hill. Lee is the consummate hostess, leaving us thorough information about the house/community, wine/snacks in the frig, and an open invitation to enjoy their lovely property. Very clean and well-furnished with all you need. Location is near north entry to Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park where we enjoyed hiking."

"My husband and I visited with our two dogs. The owner Lee took great care to ensure we had everything we needed to be comfortable for our vacation even leaving coffee, fresh eggs, wine and chocolates for us.
The house is very clean and spacious with a really nice master bathroom. Towels, sheets etc. were all provided and of a high quality and spotless. There is also a large collection of DVDs, several large TVs, comfy chairs for reading and a hot tub where you can star gaze and relax your muscles after a hike. This is definitely the rental if you want to get away from it all and relax. Also if you like wildlife, this is the rental for you! So many butterflies, humming birds, deer, all kinds of birds, rabbits and the local cows. We stayed for a week so we went out nightly to different restaurants in the area. We enjoyed several excellent meals. There are also many wineries nearby if you are into wine.
For us, the highlight was that this rental is perfect for dogs as we have two medium sized dogs. There is a large tiled utility room for dog food and water and even a dog door. Our dogs usually don't settle well in new places but after 1 night at the cabin, they were happy and relaxed. It helps that there is a great (and challenging) hiking trail nearby and an alternative fire road which is a bit less steep to tire them out. But the dogs really enjoyed the large grassy yard and the freedom to safely run around.
I would definitely recommend this rental and plan to return myself later in fall."

"We stayed a week in Peyton's charming cottage in The Plains while we came to town to visit our families. The location was ideal for us, but even better, the cottage was a warm and welcoming place for us to return to every evening. Peyton has decorated it with every thoughtful detail in mind, and we loved her use of fabrics to create a delightful space (no surprise, given that she runs a home decorating shop next door!). It really felt like a home-away-from-home for us. The Plains is our favorite town in the area, with three outstanding restaurants just around the corner, though it was wonderful to have a kitchen in the cottage so we could prepare our own breakfast. We will look forward to returning!!"

"We are a family of four (4) ... two children and we were very reluctant to stay somewhere other than an Hotel. Did we ever LUCK OUT! Jack's Cottage is so clean; comfortable; and inviting. My wife and I slept upstairs, while our two boys slept downstairs. We all LOVED it. The outside Patio and garden is just beautiful. At night, we grilled on the Gas Grill, while soft lights lit the patio area. NO MOSQUITOS!!!! We were in awe. Hats off to Jack for baking Chocolate Chip Cookies for our children. Again, VERY COMFORTABLE/CLEAN/WELCOMING accommodations. Thank you, Jack."
