Recent Shenandoah Valley reviews

  • Great getaway

    "Home is very well equipped for entertainment and relaxing. Hot tub was perfect in the cold weather. Loads of space in this house. Great loaded kitchen for any cooking you may want to do. Convenient to town but far enough to be away from it all too. Very quiet neighbors. Owners were easy to contact and work with. Very good value."

  • Delightful place for the family to stay

    "We were in the area for a November wedding. Three generations stayed in the home very comfortably, using three bedrooms but not the extra bed in the hallway. We loved having books and a crib available for the two-year old. Being able to walk easily into town was a real plus for us as we had only one car for 7 people."

  • Comfortable and convenient

    "Our group of 3 couples rented this house for a weekend in Feb and the property was a perfect fit. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and offered us the privacy we wanted, while the kitchen, dining room, and other living spaces were great for hanging out. The owner has done a fantastic job restoring the property - tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. The location of the property was also excellent - we never had to fight for parking when going to dinner or breakfast. Everything, including W&L, was within walking distance. Definitely the best rental in Lex. I look forward to booking again the next time I visit."

  • 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."

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.
