"We had a group of 10 guys getting together for a relaxing weekend and this house was perfect. Plenty of space outside for beer and horseshoes, and a huge kitchen for making big meals. The house wasnt cavernous but there was enough space to sleep us all and for us to all hang out comfortably inside or out. Didnt hurt that the weather was perfect, either. We plan to make this an annual trip and we will definitely be staying at this house again."

"From the time we booked "A Above the River Cabin" to the moment we rounded the bend in the gravel road and the cabin came into sight we knew we had chosen the perfect spot. What a beautiful cabin nestled in the woods between the river and pasture but yet closed to so many attractions and amenities. From seclusion and privacy to Luray Caverns and Super Walmart to many close by towns and wineries and cradled in the Blue Ridge mountains it was near perfect. The beautiful interior décor and lay out of the cabin to everything a couple or family would need to have a wonderful vacation. Tucked into to nature and it's surrounding with little intrusion. From relaxing and de-stressing to sightseeing the area, from the cows in the pasture and deer that came to visit to the bear across the river and the bald eagle that came to fish with us on a couple of occasions. To enjoying the outdoor fire pit to spending the day fishing for sunfish in the "honey hole" just off the left side of the dock, to catching catfish, carp and small mouth bass and to the lone coyote who visited the river one night to howl as if to let us know he loved the property "A Above The River Cabin" also. There is so much to do surrounding this cabin and there is so little to do surrounding this cabin all depending on your frame of mind. The "A Above The River Cabin" seems to present itself as a place to relax, take a load off your feet, get back to really "vacationing", surround yourself with loved ones, and calm your soul. Many thanks to Becky and her husband for not only creating such a beautiful place but to allowing others into this "Slice of Nature" and creating our own memories."

"I have many, many great things to say about this cabin. We had a group of 6 adults, a 3 year old, and a 7 month old. The house was updated, very clean inside, had the perfect amount of space for our needs, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Being right on the river was lovely and the grass had all been mowed before we got there. There were two fire pit areas that were great (one by the house and one right on the river). Perfect distance to the mountains, town, and river activities. It was great that there were some toys and books left in the living room for my two young children!! And even better there were some birds that had nested around the house. I miss waking up and sitting on the deck or the bench by the river with my cup of coffee!
I did not give this location 5 stars because we experienced lots of spiders (I know..I know...we're in the woods). Maybe the deck and around the house had been cleaned of spider webs before we arrived, but it did not seem to have been. I didn't expect to be bug free, but there were a lot of BIG ones hanging right outside all the doors and windows (luckily only two harmless daddy long legs in the house). We couldn't find a broom to wipe away the webs outside, so we bought one and left one for the next guests. Once we removed the webs, there were fewer, but they were still around. Add to that there were wasp nests above the sliding glass doors, which is probably a bit more serious of an issue. The other issue was the grill could use to be replaced, but it works.
I would definitely recommend this place and will book this place for future trips!!!! Just wipe down the house of all the webs when you arrive if they haven't been already!"
