Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • Peaceful, cozy cabin in the woods

    "My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend and we loved every minute. The cabin is in a great spot for exploring Shenandoah National Park. The cabin is wonderfully maintained the fireplace and hot tub are wonderful after a cold day hiking. I imagine this would be a great spot to stay in the summer months too! I will definitely be back."

  • Raining weekend in Spring was wonderful!

    "It was a last minute decision to get away for the weekend to the mountains. We found this lovely property (Bear Valley) and were lucky enough to secure a reservation. We arrived on Friday and it was raining for most of the weekend. It's funny how that doesn't bother you when you are sitting in the hottub and enjoying watching the river go by! This was a wonderful property that relaxes you and gets you back to nature. We will be back to use the Canoes and mountain bikes."

  • Magical!

    "We've stayed in many great cabins throughout VA as we love to pick a new area to explore each year. Having said that, it's rare for us to both agree that THIS cabin will see us again! The quiet solitude with nothing but the sounds of nature cannot be matched. We live in a rural, country area that's very peaceful anyway and even so we found this stay to be the ultimate retreat. When not relaxing on the screened porch overlooking the creek (side note: the ceiling fans make it incredibly comfortable!), we visited Roaring Run, Fenwick Mines, Paint Bank, and Fincastle Vineyards, as well as tons of driving through scenic areas. We spotted bald eagles, otter, turkey, and deer. Fishing is abundant if you find the pocket. If anyone ventures into Daleville we recommend Three Little Pigs BBQ. We would love to come back for a stay during the autumn months in the future."

  • Tranquility!!!

    "We were originally getting away for a graduation ceremony at Virginia Tech. Motel rooms were limited, so we looked elsewhere for lodging and fell in love with Overlook Cabin. With only a 45 minute to an hour commute to VT, we decided to make this an extended vacation. If you are looking for a quiet get away with limited access to the outside, Overlook Cabin is the place to be. You can sit back and relax, knowing that there is a good chance of no interruptions from a phone call or e-mail notification. The only sounds you will hear is that of a wild turkey, owl, or the wind rustling the leaves of the trees. At night, you can settle in beside the fireplace while looking up at the stars. This is definitely unlike any place I have rented before."

Shenandoah Valley Travel Tips

Shenandoah Valley Vacation Rentals Offer Scenery, History and Great Recreation

The scenic Shenandoah Valley is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Alleghany Mountains, both known for their natural beauty. The valley extends for 200 miles from Harpers Ferry to Roanoke and includes the Shenandoah National Park, and the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. All these areas offer a host of outdoor activities and places to visit.

Shenandoah Valley Lodging Offers Plenty of Nearby Attractions to Visit

The picturesque drives around the Shenandoah Valley are the main attractions of this scenic area. Explore Skyline Drive or the Blue Ridge Parkway on foot or by car. The area is exceptionally breathtaking in the fall when the trees become a flaming mass of red, gold and orange. The two-lane highways have a maximum 45 mph speed limit in most places, and there are frequent viewpoints for taking great photographs of the surrounding hills, river valleys and small farms. Stop for picnics or take a hike in this beautiful area.

The area is also known for its Civil War battlefields and there are many museums dedicated to the history of the area. One of the best is the Shenandoah Museum in Winchester.

Caverns and natural attractions are other aspects of a visit to the Shenandoah Valley. Small towns, such as Front Royal with its historic downtown, Roanoke, Salem and Waynesboro, remain in a time warp with antique shops to browse around and plenty of small cafés and restaurants.

Shenandoah Valley Cabins Make Great Bases for Virginia Vacations

Your own cabin surrounded by beautiful scenery in the Shenandoah Valley is the best way to enjoy this lovely area. With plenty of space and all the comfort and amenities of home, Shenandoah Valley cabins are an economical option for a vacation, especially in the off-peak season or when sharing the cabin with friends or family. Children can make as much noise as they like and even the family dog is welcome.

Things to Do Around Virginia Vacation Rentals

Hiking, biking and exploring the area by car are the main things to do in this scenic area. Horseback riding, fishing, and antiquing are also popular. The rivers are ideal for canoeing, kayaking or tubing, and boats can be hired to explore the local waterways. Golf is available at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club and Jackson's Chase Golf Club, among others. The Appalachian Trail runs through Virginia and offers a range of challenges for hikers. Those wanting a bird's-eye view of the area will enjoy a hot air balloon ride or a trip in a small plane over the area.

The area is known for its great wine and a tour of a winery followed by a tasting is a fun way to spend an afternoon. Follow the General's Wine and History Trail which links 10 great wineries, or head for the Chester Gap Cellars at Front Royal or the Fox Meadow Vineyards at Linden.
