  • 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."

  • Getaway with 16 year old grandson

    "This past week I spent four days in Mountain Whisper with my 16 year old grandson. He is high functioning asperger. We were quite pleased with our experience. The cabin was an excellent base camp as we fished, took the Luray Cavern tour, hiked, and found isolated areas to teach him how to shoot using my pellet rifle. Shenandoah River Outfitters is just down the hill from the cabin and the variety of their rentals should support most desires to spend time on the river. The cabin was immaculate when we arrived and the kitchen was very well stocked with eating and cooking utensils. It was not what I would have expected in a cabin - the appliances were in excellent condition - well honestly, i don't know if the stove worked because as two guys we didn't cook much indoors, but the microwave and refrigerator were excellent. I have seen several reviews on various sites commenting on the bed being only "full" size. The smaller of the 3 bedrooms has a full size bed but the other beds are definitely queen size. I rate my experience as 5 stars, not because it is the best cabin I have ever stayed in but because the cabin was exactly what my grandson and I needed and it met all expectations based on the various website descriptions. My grandson was especially happy having civilization (Walmart) relatively close by and he would recommend MIndi's for their chips and salsa. Jim D."

  • Beautiful & Accessible

    "We totally enjoyed our 3 nights at this unique & beautifully decorated log cabin. My daughter is wheelchair dependent and the cabin's accessibility was great. The easy access entrance ramp, doorways and bathroom facilities and shower offered NO barriers for maneuverability. The cabin is immaculate and we felt right at home. We enjoyed a campfire every night, the hot tub, walks to the fishing pond and the great view of Kennedy Peak and the mountains. The cabin is fairly secluded but close enough to downtown Luray, Luray Caverns, George Washington National Forest and Skyline Drive with there many sites and hiking trails. This is a great place to stay especially for those with a disability. Thanks Annette for paying such special attention in making your beautiful log cabin accessible."

Luray Travel Tips

Luray Vacation Rentals Are Easy to Get to and Hard to Leave

Luray lodging is found in the 314 square miles that make up Page County in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The primary roads leading to Luray lodging are US Route 340 and 211, with both Interstates 81 and 66 leading to the area. The Shenandoah Valley benefits from a subtropical climate with hot summers and cool winters and is bounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians to the north. To the south lies the James River.

Luray Lodging in an Area of Historic Natural Beauty

Luray vacation rentals are close to a number of interesting natural features, scenic wonders and heritage for visitors to explore. The US Natural Landmark at Luray Caverns is a stunning set of caverns, the largest of which is 10 stories high which attracts many visitors. Here, among the caverns, is the world’s only Stalacpipe Organ, created from the stalactite formations to produce an eerily beautiful sound. While visiting the caverns, many visitors choose to visit the Car and Carriage Caravan Museum to view over 140 transportation artifacts and the Garden Maze where children can spend hours working through the maze.

The National Scenic Byway is over 100 miles of great views over and around the Blue Ridge, woodland, farms, and orchards. Lucky drivers will spot wildlife like black bear, white tailed deer, opossum, gray fox, mink, river otter, squirrels, woodchuck, chipmunks and raccoons. Over 200 species of migratory birds also visit the area. In the Lake Arrowhead Beach area, visitors will find a 34-acre lake in a woodland setting, where visitors may hike, fish, swim or kayak on the lake. At the Belle Brown Northcott Memorial, or the Luray Singing Tower as it is known, visitors may enjoy exploring the 117-foot tower and listening to the regular recitals. The tower is known as a major carillon throughout the country. In the town of Luray, visitors will find the Page County Courthouse, dating from 1834.

Among the many other attractions here are Massanutten Waterpark, Busch Gardens, Dinosaur Land, Shenandoah Valley Discovery Park and the New Market Battlefield. Along the Cedar Creek Trail, which was used during the Civil War, there is one of the region’s hidden treasures, the Natural Bridge. This startling natural structure is some 20 stories high and a solid rock bridge. It is worth the hike just to see this unique feature. For a more modern outing, visitors will find the Shenandoah Speedway a thrilling experience for all the family. Civil War enthusiasts will enjoy a trip to the New Market Battlefield State Park; the site of this historic battle is home to a 19th-century farm, Hall of Valor Civil War Museum and much more. The park has walking trails and picnic areas.

There are a variety of possibilities for trips on the Shenandoah River, near the George Washington National Forest. Here, visitors may enjoy a canoe or kayak trip or try tubing. There is also fishing and swimming.

Even the Dining Is Historic

Even dining around Luray cabins is both historic and typically Virginian. Regional dishes served for centuries throughout the state help make a vacation experience unique. There are many restaurants serving local specialties such as country ham, grits, fried chicken, ethnic dishes of soul food and locally caught fish. Page County also has many vineyards and visitors may enjoy a tour and the opportunity to buy some of the finished product.
