Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • Great Cabin on the river

    "We were travelling back to Williamsburg from Indiana and were looking for something secluded but also close to Luray Caverns and Skyline Drive. We were able to schedule a last minute mini vacation at the cabin and it was everything we were looking for. The owners were very accommodating and the cabin was very comfortable (I couldn't get my grandson off of the very large bean bag chair. We couldn't see or hear anything except for trees and water. It is a cabin and not a hotel so don't expect perfection as the cabin water did have a sulfur smell but overall it was great place for a vacation. It was well furnished and had the extras to make it comfortable. My grandson was happy that he didn't have to live without the internet or DirecTV in the evenings when we were done touring and canoeing. We hope to return again soon for a longer time period and spend more time relaxing and less touring."

  • family get together

    "Several members of our family met here. The house, amenities, and location were terrific. we were wanting for nothing. After 3 days we were sorry that we weren't staying longer. Plenty of activities in the local area, and the house, yard and barn had kept the adults and kids thoroughly entertained. We will definitely be back!"

  • Perfect Farmhouse overlooking stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains

    "We booked this as a stop off for our long drive from Washington DC to Dollywood/Nashville. We arrived early evening and the farm house was lit up and welcoming. Barbara called to see if everything was ok and it was lovely to hear the history of this gorgeous Farmhouse. The Farmhouse was stocked with everything you could want tea/coffee and a selection of herbs and spices for cooking. Our teenage children were happy being reunited with Wifi while we enjoyed the stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the lonesome pine in the garden. After a great nights sleep we awoke to see a Ground Hog running through the garden. We loved it some much we stayed for one more night on our return to Washington Airport. If your looking for a peaceful haven and stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains this is the place for you. We were sorry we were not able to stay for longer - thank you Barbara"

  • Perfect Wedding Weekend!

    "We recently had the good fortune of spending the week at Marksville Manor. Joanie and Arthur are both amazing. I mainly worked with Joanie prior to our arrival and she was always so friendly and kind. It felt as if I were making plans with an old friend. When we pulled into the driveway I thought the place could not have been more perfect for the small family wedding we were going to have the following day. The outside of the house was impeccable. The yard was freshly mowed and the flowers looked gorgeous. We couldn't wait to unload and start getting everything set up. We first entered the house through the side door which led into the mudroom and kitchen. It took my breath away. The pictures do not do this house justice. The house has an amazing layout and you can truly tell that Arthur and Joanie put their hearts and souls into this place. After walking into the kitchen we noticed a freshly made cake with a heartfelt note from Joanie. The cake was wonderful and you could tell it was made with love. There was also a lovely gift basket on the table that was perfect for our needs while at the house. Later that day we got to meet Arthur. He was unloading some firewood for us and while talking to him he mentioned they had an arbor we could use for the wedding. It was the perfect finishing touch that we had needed for our big day. Everyone had a great time while we were there. They all talked about how perfect the house was and how beautiful it was. They also wanted to know how we found this wonderful gem. We are hoping to be able to make this a regular family vacation. It was the perfect weekend in the perfect place. Thank you Joanie and Arthur for sharing your beautiful home. We also want to say thanks for the part you played in our wedding going so well. We wish you both the best of luck."

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.

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.
