Fantastic location for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Le Petite Chateau met all our expectations and more! From preparing dinner in the exceptionally well-fitted-out kitchen to stargazing on the balcony, everything we wanted was close at hand. Our family of five adults and a young child had room to roam and plenty to keep everyone occupied. We'd definitely stay here again!

French Chateau? - yeah, I'd say that.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean house inside and out. It sleeps four comfortably, plus a fold out sofa. Only five minutes from the Shenandoah National Park and the Appalachian Trail. Privacy and a view too.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up to Petite Chauteau, we knew our stay would be perfect.

From the decor, to the beautiful views, to the cleanliness of this home; I would not only recommend this home to others but this is the only place I would stay when we are in this area.

Excellent enjoyable property

  • 5 of 5

First rate property in great location with similar nice properties. Plenty of parking. Clean and well appointed. Huge open space on first floor with well appointed kitchen. Separate dining room with comfortable table and lots of elbow room. Plenty of bedroom space with attached bathrooms having large walk-in showers. Sun drenched deck with nice view felt great in April with an umbrella for later in summer. Grill on deck with a second propane tank. Seamless rental process. Highly recommend! I want to go back.
