Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Away from it all

    "My family was looking for a place to get away from it all and enjoy some quality time together. We absolutely found it at Olde Surber. We were amazed at how clean and all the extras Olde Surber provided. The well stocked and labeled cabinets made cooking a breeze. Each night we sat in the parlor playing cards and listening to the radio. In the morning my husband and I enjoyed various hikes from the property, two of which are the swinging bridge and the trestle bridge, while the 3 teens slept in. Once everyone was up and fed tubing commenced. We especially loved launching from the fishing spot right across from the driveway and tubing for almost 2 hours and getting out at the swinging bridge. The walk back to the cabin on the creek was only 20 minutes. Our family was amazed at the amount of stars we could see in the evening as we roasted our marshmallows. You couldn't ask for anymore amenities then Olde Surber provides. Hiking, fishing, tubing, cornhole, 2 firepits, lots of wildlife, and a warm comfy home. Thank you for sharing your property with us."

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.

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.
