Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • Stunning views, secluded cabin

    "Our stay in Deer Haven could not have been more perfect. We loved being in such a remote spot away from all traffic noises (we live outside of DC), with only the stars and wilderness to keep us company at night. The views of the valley below made for incredible sunrises and sunsets! The area is perfect if you're into hiking, too, which we are. This time of year the trails were not crowded at all and the leaves were still turning at lower elevations. Check out Kennedy's Peak, Tibbet Knob or Big Schloss which are only 20-ish minutes away from the cabin and have gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains! Soaking in the hot tub after a day of hiking was one of the highlights of the trip. We'll be back!"

  • It's called Lazy Acres for a Reason!!! :)

    "This quaint little place was just perfect for our get-away weekend while visiting our son at VMI. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, and was the perfect size for what we needed. The owner, Amber, could not have been nicer, and was extremely accommodating. We played cards, cooked dinners, sat out on the porch, played football, took walks, took LONG naps (hence the ref. to LAZY) and enjoyed the lovely weather and the beautiful scenery. We will DEFINITELY be back! Another great thing about Lazy Acres cabin rentals is that there are two of them about 200 yards from one another, so if you wanted to rent with family or friends you could do so, without being on top of one another. My husband liked it so much, the first thing he said the second day we were there was, "I could live in this place"."

  • Perfect spot for team outing!!!

    "We, a group of people with family working together, chose this place for team outing. I'm always very picky in what i select. So before choosing this place, i have gone through each reviews one by one. Then i started emailing Carol, the owner, to know more information about the stay place and the facilities available. I was a little concerned about the drive way which one of the reviewer mentioned. But there is no worry of concern. Its all manageable. The house was beautifully arranged and was all clean. Instructions has been kept everywhere. I read in a review that the fridge is old. Might have been old before, but not now. Its a new good fridge. Beautiful scenery from the deck upstairs and downstairs. Bedrooms are good. There are 3 normal bedrooms and 4 bunk bedrooms with enough quilts and sheets. Bathrooms has everything - toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, towels and tissue. Games like puzzles are available if you would like to do it as a team building activity. Kids activities/games are available. Fooseball is a good addition. One suggestion would be that if we can have some new non-stick pans it would be great. Apart from that, we really enjoyed and amazed with our stay there, house being surrounded by beautiful fall colors. We could even meet some deers outside our resort. Kids had so much fun. You will have to follow the instructions mentioned in the house as well as in the contract. If you do that, you are all good. Would highly recommend and go there if we get another chance :)"

  • Great for multiple generations. Relaxing.

    "A beautiful home with plenty of space for visiting or just porch rocking. Our four generations enjoyed our together time as well as a 500 piece puzzle. The kitchen truly had everything we needed. This house is a step back in time with all the modern conveniences. We had a great vacation!"

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.

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.
