"My husband and I and our Cocker Spaniels rented this cottage for a week at the end of August. The location was fabulous. Days spent hiking the Shenandoah National Park along Skyline Drive. Words cannot describe the beauty of this area. Also, hours spent sitting on our tubes in front of the cottage. Jan was kind enough one day to drop us off with our tubes so we could float down the river to our cottage. It was heavenly. Jan and John go out of their way to ensure you have a fabulous vacation and we surely did. Also, there was an issue with the water pressure, which they addressed and fixed immediately. We cannot say enough positive things about this property and area. Our dogs were able to run free in the large yard. Being from Baltimore, this was fabulous to watch them play off the leash with their balls and also be able to swim, which was a complete surprise when one day our dog jumped in behind us. I would recommend this vacation property to anyone and we will definitely be coming back next year. The firepit was also a great way to end a perfect day each of the 7 nights we were there."Guest: Kim Higley-Diehl Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 2, 2014View listing
"We rented this home with 5 couples who were there for the purpose of riding motorcycles on the wonderful Virginia/North Carolina roads. We stayed for 5 nights and did 4 day rides out from here. We had 7 couples in total and 2 couples stayed in their sister home, Shady River Cabin. The home met our needs very well and the owner was very kind to us and even drove us in to town to pick up pizza. He also built us a bonfire. One helpful hint if you are traveling as friends/couples: There are 3 full bathrooms,2 of them are inside of bedrooms, (the couple in the master bedroom said "we are living a dream" so put your early risers in those two bedrooms. Great home! We had a lot of fun."Guest: Babz Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 6, 2014View listing

Virginia Travel Tips
Seasons to Visit Virginia Vacation Rentals

Perhaps this is because of the beautiful beaches, the extensive mountain trails, or the many musical events that happen throughout summer. Along the coastal regions, it can get particularly humid during July and August. Further inland and in the mountainous areas, the air is a little drier and the temperatures milder. This is ideal for outdoor activities and explorations. In effect, Virginia has almost five different climatic regions. In the wintertime, you may be skiing in the mountains one day and playing golf the next in another part of Virginia. In general, there is about a 10-degree temperature difference between the coastal and mountain regions.
