  • Beautiful Home, Friendly Owner, Lots to Do!

    "Our three generation family recently spent a wonderful week together at Drake Lodge. The house was beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, everything imaginable in the kitchen, and new furniture and rugs in the main living area. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures you see on the VRBO site. The owner definitely knows what a family might need to be comfortable, was prompt at responding to questions, and made several excellent suggestions as to what our family might enjoy. There is so much to do both on the mountain and in the surrounding area! Our grandchildren (two grandsons age 5 and granddaughter age 8) loved the water park, the go-carts, and the pets at the Lavender Farm; our children enjoyed visits to JMU and UVA campuses and the sunset tour at Monticello. Luray Caverns was also a big hit. My husband and I enjoyed the sunrises, the fresh mountain air, and the joy of being together! We usually go to a different state each year, but the house is so perfect, and there’s so much more to do, that we’re going back to Drake Lodge in 2015. It’s THAT good!"

  • Simple pleasures

    "We love it!!! From the beginning the owners (Christian) was in good contact. He was polite and sent over information as needed and required. From the outside the home is simple but the inside is just what we loved. There is nothing extravagant about the home but the layout is made for vacationers and the space is absolutely plenty. The option to watch the game in one living room and play games in another is absolutely A plus! 14 ladies went and we had a fantastic time. The home is more than enough for such a large group. The seclusion is just enough for the laughter and loud outburst which came out of playing taboo; yet close enough to not feel alone!!! The cool thing about the house is that many basic necessities were included. Such as dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, toilet paper. Even though we brought some it was nice to have that available. There were minor issues which are repairable things but they in no way hindered our vacation. Things such as slow bathroom drains. Actually that was it!!! The steep driveway was a bit scary to myself and some but we made it work. Thank you Christian and the other owners for allow us to stay. The best part was the rate! I absolutely recommend this home."

Massanutten Resort Travel Tips

Massanutten Resort Vacation Rentals are Close to Harrisonburg

The Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia is one of the most picturesque in the state. Massanutten Resort vacation rentals are close to many of the outdoor activities that make this a holiday paradise. The views of the Shenandoah River, Lake Shenandoah and Silver Lake can be seen from many of the VRBO rentals. The homes are surrounded by National Forests so there are many opportunities to go hiking or biking. The terrain is rife with caverns, national parks and wineries so everyone that accompanies you on your vacation will find something to do. Since you will be staying in someone’s home, you can expect to find many amenities that you will not get in a hotel. The rooms are spacious and the bedrooms are luxurious. The rentals also come with great kitchens so that you can do your own cooking. Choosing this type of vacation rental ensures you can find just the right property to fulfill all your travel expectations.

Approaches to Massanutten Resort Vacation Houses

Guests relaxing at Massanutten Resort vacation houses can reach them by flying into the Harrisonburg airport and renting a car to get to their vacation destination. All it takes is for you to get on I-81 or, if you are coming from Charlottesville, I-64 to I-81. This scenic trip brings you through the rolling Virginia hills and into the heart of history.

History and Caverns Near Massanutten Resort Condos

Several battles of the Civil War were fought in the area of the Shenandoah Valley. It is also filled with the rich history of the Brethren and Mennonite settlers that came here from Pennsylvania. Today, guests of Massanutten Resort condos can take tours of the Hardesty-Higgins House, Valley Brethren-Mennonite Heritage Center or the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg. If guests would like to take a driving tour of the area, they can pick up audio CDs at the visitor center in Harrisonburg.

Spelunkers can enjoy the Endless Caverns in New Market which features chambers such as Snowdrift, Grand Canyon and Fairyland. Guided tours here last about an hour and a half and picnicking is encouraged. You can pack yourself a lunch from your condo’s kitchen and savor a day checking out the various caves. Other caves in the area are the Shenandoah Caverns that have been open since 1922. This cavern area also has many chambers to explore as well as fault lines in the ceilings because they were formed by earthquake movement.

Shenandoah National Park extends along the Blue Ridge Parkway for about 105 miles and is open all year long. Visitors to the park can hike, ride on horseback and picnic while taking in the fantastic scenery.

Restaurants Along With Shopping by Massanutten Resort Homes

Visit the many wineries in the Shenandoah Valley to choose a wine that will complement your dinner entrée. In the area of Natural Bridge, you can stop by the Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery or the Wintergreen Vineyard & Winery. If you would like to pick up something you may have forgotten before you left home, there is the Valley Mall in Harrisonburg just off US 33 for department store and other retail store shopping.

The best places to pick up reminders of Virginia though will be at the smaller villages where you can browse antique stores or specialty shops that offer handmade crafts such as quilts. In the general area of the resort, you will find a General Store, the Market at Woodstone, Teddy Bear Factory, Merchandice Retail Store and Piney Mountain Gifts. Whether you need supplies or souvenirs, you will be able to find it in the resort area.

Dining by the resort will give you many offerings for every discriminating taste. You can dine while overlooking the golf course at the Fareways Restaurant or dig into a hand-tossed pizza at the Woodstone Deli & Pizzeria. If you are at the resort in the winter, cruise by the Ski Lodge Cafeteria for some delicious food to energize you. There is also the family-style Blue Ridge Buffet, Snackers for a quick burger and fry lunch, or a nighttime libation at the Encounters Lounge.
