  • Our Perfect Vacation

    "It will be hard to make this brief. Mitch and Bobbie genuinely love people and they love this cabin. That is reflected in your experience here. The homemade box of cookies upon arrival was such a treat and the cabin was spotless and decorated beautifully. We had everything we needed so it was very much like being at home. I even cooked 3 meals while I was there (2 from scratch) and had every size of cookware, dish and utensil that I might need. Our favorite place in the house is the Dining/Sleeping Porch (including my 173 lb Mastiff who couldn't get enough of the view). We ate all our meals there and I'll never forget eating lunch while watching a deer drink from the creek. The little trails around the property are just perfect for short walks with the dog. Oh and they have a Cornhole set in the yard. That was a pleasant surprise for us since we love that game. If you stay here DO NOT miss out on hiking the "Roaring Run Furnace trail" just a short drive away. It was better and prettier than anything we could have paid to do. I recommend taking the "Streamside" trail to the waterfall and the "Woodland" trail on the way back. Our photos from that trail walk are just magical, especially with all of the brightly fall colored leaves. Mitch and Bobbie, thank you so much for letting us and our ginormous dog stay in your beautiful cabin and for being so informative and helpful. God bless!"

  • Loved Gooney Lodge

    "I recently stayed at Gooney lodge and I couldn't say enough good things about this place. It was close enough to DC to not spend hours on the highway, but also remote enough that we felt like we were truly escaping. The lodge is very charming and I loved sitting on the front porch enjoying the sounds of the creek. I would go back any time. It was a wonderful experience to truly unplug for the weekend. No cell service was a blessing!"

  • Peaceful, beautiful country cottage

    "We had a wonderful stay in May at Seven Oaks Cottage. The facilities were just as described, very clean and comfortable, and so homely with lots of personal touches and plenty of leaflets and advice about the surrounding area. We visited Staunton, the Frontier Culture Museum the Skyline Drive and Charlottesville - all an easy drive from the cottage. We also enjoyed the fresh eggs the owners gave us from their chickens! The owners were very helpful and friendly, whilst also respecting our privacy. We enjoyed seeing all the animals, walking in the forest on the farm and sampling some of the fresh strawberries growing just outside the cottage. The fire pit was great - toasting marshmallows in the flames, spotting fireflies and stargazing over the rolling hills around us - a truly magical stay, thank you so much."

  • Best Weekend Ever

    "I rented the cabin for my girlfriends birthday earlier in the week, and for a little much-needed mini-getaway. Derek was extremely helpful in getting us there (don't use GPS) and helping us with the cabin in general. The cabin was amazing, the fireplace was used a lot and so was the hot tub. Everything was very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked with the cookware I needed to cook meals. We'll definitely be back!"

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.
