  • Whole family loved this house!

    "We rented this chalet for a week at the tail end of ski season (family of 5). We lucked out, as there was a ton of snow on St. Patrick's day this year! The house is about a mile from the ski resort. I walked back and forth a couple times. The roads up to the house are pretty steep. If there is snow, I would take 4-wheel drive if possible. My husband thought his BMW all-wheel-drive could handle it, but no. We got him out eventually, though ;). The owners have arranged for snow removal, so it was a nice surprise when a man with a plow and shovels came by in the afternoon to clear the driveway and walkways. From the pictures online, it's hard to tell if the layout would be convenient or not. In person, it is awesome. The fireplace area is sooo nice, and we had no trouble whatsoever getting a fire going (make sure you use DRY wood, even if you have to pick some up from the 7-11). There is a notebook in the house with directions on how to work absolutely everything, so no worries. I loved that there was a mudroom. I made my kids leave their boots in there so as not to track snow all over the house. It also kept the house warmer because you could close the door to the mudroom and not have a breeze every time someone came inside. The kitchen was on the small side, but well stocked and labeled so you didn't have to open door after door to find something. We had no trouble cooking family dinners. The dining table is a nice size. The bedrooms are spacious. The master bedroom was very comfortable. The showers have decent water pressure. Everything works as it should. The basement is a nice recreation room. The kids loved the ping-pong and darts, and of course the TV. It was great to have a selection of dvd's to choose from. The basement is finished, warm and inviting, and has its own bathroom, so it is a nice place to hang out. It was especially nice that the owners allowed us to bring our little dog. He was overjoyed to finally be able to come with us on a vacation. He was so excited to have a change of scene and be able to explore someplace new. It make it more fun for all of us to have him there. Angie the owner was very easy to work with, no trouble at all with payment and refund of deposit. She was even able to accommodate our request for a late checkout - much appreciated! By the end of the trip, my 19 yr old daughter asked if we could buy the house! Had to say no, since it's not for sale, and we are tuition-poor :(."

  • Wonderful!

    "I recently stayed in the smokehouse. Very warm and homey! I'm so glad I stayed here rather than a hotel. The property is just gorgeous and our greeters, Chester and Dozer, gave us a grand tour! Would definitely stay here again."

  • Honeymoon location

    "Gorgeous view every morning, soothing hot tub, EXTRA large shower for two, fully furnished house with washer/dryer (a major plus). It was a great honeymoon location and it was near so many fun things like Luray Caverns, the picturesque town of Luray, Canoeing, and many other things. My wife and I highly recommend it and hope to come back to it again someday!"

  • "Relaxitude"

    "We orchestrated a last-minute perfectly relaxing family get-together at Quietude cottage with our adult sons. Elizabeth is a wonderful hostess, and is good with communications. The house is well-equipped and comfortably furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a nice home-cooked meal. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the back patio with its hammock and listening to the water garden. Watching hummingbirds and goldfinches from the patio and front porches was an added bonus. We went to a play at the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton (20 mins away), bicycled on the Blue Ridge Parkway, fly fished in a small stream outside Waynesboro (30 mins away), and played board games from the well-stocked game library. We will return to Quietude, but the next time we plan to stay a little longer just to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the house. Thanks for a great weekend!"
