Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • excellent place for a family long week end

    "All amenities were working as described on the website: AC/hot tub, canoes, bikes, ... In addition, the kitchen is well equipped and all was made to have a nice stay there. We went there with another family for a long week end. The place is large enough with two aisles, each with bathrooms and bedrooms: one for each family. Also, the managers were very flexible, allowing for a change in the dates/place just one day prior to arrival, at no extra cost. We could also benefit from a late check out, as no other guests were expected on that day."

  • Gorgeous view and cozy living space!

    "Every year we have three families meet up for a fun weekend of snow skiing and adventure!! This year we had the luxury of staying at the Drake Lodge and was very impressed with the amenities, view, and location. In talking to the owners you can tell they want their guests to enjoy their stay and feel at home. Each room had a tv and full bathroom which was great for 11 people plus the dining room table was large so all of us could eat as a family!"

  • Return visit to Overlook cabin, 2014

    "We enjoyed Overlook cabin so much during our October 2013 stay, we wanted another visit this fall, and for a longer period of time. We saw no one for 5 days, except birds, deer and owls.....we walked for hours, talked, read our books in front of the fireplace........The cabin is lovely, warm and provides every comfort. The woods, trees, streams, vistas.......perfect beauty and peace!"

  • Spring Easter/ Birthday Weekend!

    "My family had a lovely time on our 3-night stay at Quietude. The weather was cooperative, so my nine-year-old daughter and nearly four-year-old son spent much of the weekend playing outside. My daughter romped and frolicked all over the property, making full use of the many varied outdoor spaces (hammocks, trees, gardens) and letting her imagination run wild. My son greatly enjoyed playing with the outdoor toys (tricycle, little tyke car, and all the trucks in the sandbox). It was Easter weekend, and Quietude was a fantastic spot for an Easter egg hunt! The house was comfortable and we had everything that we needed. We were thankful for the beautiful scenery (rolling hills and farmland), the soothing gardens and water features, the time spent with nature, and especially for the location, which was convenient for many day-time excursions - to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park, Waynesboro, Staunton, PolyFace Farm, and so much more! When we left, my son cried and was already asking when we could come back again."

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.
