Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • Great Cabin for R&R

    "Stayed with family members for a week of park time, historical visits, and local activities. The cabin is beautiful and quiet time on the full deck was much appreciated. We grilled often and enjoyed using the fire pit to roast hot dogs & marshmallows. The remote access made for a couple of long days when we ventured to Gettysburg, etc., but it was a very good location for visiting Shenandoah N.P. Recommend floating by tube or raft on the nearby river. Downriver Canoe & Raft did well for us. Tom Gordy & helper, Brenda, were quick to respond to cabin needs & both were very nice. Thank you for a terrific place for our family to spend precious time together."

  • Quiet retreat

    "After several hectic weeks of work the two night getaway really recharged our batteries! The cabin is so clean and quiet and remote enough for complete privacy. We cooked, hiked, soaked in the hot tub, and completely relaxed. Thank you, we're hoping to get back in the fall."

  • 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 :(."

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.
