Why Eugene Christopher chose Luray
This property is private yet close to town.No one is directly behind, to the left or front of cabin. River is on the right with direct walk out access.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin is our special spot at the river. Just a walk through the yard takes you directly to the Shenandoah river where you can swim, fish, tube, canoe, kayak, while enjoying wildlife and the views. Take in the peaceful relaxation and mountain views all while still being close to our quaint town.

Modern chalet in a rustic, quiet setting
Beautiful hardwood cottage with a top-notch, full kitchen and three comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom has an awesome jacuzzi tub in its bath, which was great. The master bedroom overlooks the living area and isn’t behind closed doors, so keep this in mind for privacy. The owner was very responsive to any questions.
Just steps away from the river, we saw many deer 🦌 during our stay. The night sky was beautiful, with little light pollution. Luray is just a few minutes away. I’d recommend taking a higher-clearance vehicle or 4-wheel drive to get to the property, as a few miles of the road are unpaved and a small part is, essentially, dry riverbed.
The only recommendation for the owner is for pillows to be replaced. While the decorative ones, in shams, are nice, the “real” pillows are very flat. Otherwise, this place is darn near perfect! Thanks for a wonderful long family weekend.
Thank you! We do appologize for the "dry riverbed" at the bottom..It is normally not like that.it is normally gravel covered..It has been redone several times this year but with recent flooding and the large amount of rain we've had since the beginning of fall 2018, the river has been swollen and higher than normal forcing the water to overflow in at the "bottom". This has caused it to wash all those river stones into that part of the road.That just happened again a couple weeks ago. We do try to keep the road up to par but we are among the few who share the road with several other privately owned rental cabins that don't do much to contribute to road maintenance. As soon as we have repaired it, the rains come and wash it back out..well for the last 6 months we have had over triple amount of rainfall in our area..Thanks for letting us know about the pillows. We do agree that they need to be replaced as well..Thanks for staying with us and do come back again!
