Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape to the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the sounds of the Shenandoah River. Located just 75 minutes from the Capital Beltway, The Chalet is the perfect getaway for couples, families or a small group of friends (2-6 people). John Muir wrote 'I am in the mountains and the mountains are in me.' That is exactly how you will feel when you step onto the wrap around deck with one of the most spectacular views in the Valley. The Chalet is designed with the mountains in mind. From most of the living areas in the Chalet, including the main bedroom, you can take in a postcard view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Chalet offers two bedrooms upstairs, both with Queen beds, as well as a double futon downstairs, and two full baths. (one on each floor). The kitchen is fully equipped and is only a step away from either an 8' x 39' outdoor deck or your own spacious 10' x 20' screen porch. On the screen porch you will find a table and chairs for outdoor dining and a hammock where you can lie back, relax and listen to the s ounds of the Shenandoah River. For more relaxation step into a Brand New 4 person hot tub under the stars and watch the full moon rise over the mountains. The interior of the cabin is accented with rustic knotty pine trim and abounds with natural light. Enjoy all the beauty and authenticity of a fireplace with the convenience of a gas log fire situated where you can view it from the dining and living areas. For those who would like to have a real fire or want that camping feeling there is an outdoor fire pit.

Our river access is only a 1/2 mile walk from the chalet. We are also within a half an hour of many popular attractions such as canoeing or tubing on the historic Shenandoah River, hiking in the Shenandoah National Park, horseback riding, or fly-fishing on a mountain stream. You can take a drive along the Skyline Drive, explore the depths of Luray Caverns, or just browse for antiques in downtown Luray. For children there is Jellystone Park with miniature golf and the Luray Reptile Center and Petting Zoo. Massanutten Ski Resort is only 45 minutes away.

The Chalet is a great base for year round activities in the mountains of Virginia. Come enjoy the privacy of your very own cabin in the woods.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was the perfect place for me and my husband to stay for a weekend away from DC. It had beautiful views, the surrounding area had amazing hikes, and the property itself was very cozy. The fireplace is great for Smores. We brought our puppy with us and he loved it too! I'd recommend the Chalet to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy being away from hustle and bustle.

Perfect place to stay while enjoying Shenandoah

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting the Shenandoah National Park area for the first time over a long weekend and this cabin was perfect. We did a lot of hiking during the days we were there, and the hot tub was amazing to come home to at the end of the day. Also enjoyed grilling out for dinner each night. Luray has a couple grocery options that have pretty good selections for most food choices.

The cabin was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Very cozy and quiet. We also enjoyed just sitting around the kitchen table at night drinking wine and enjoying the cabin life. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice weekend at the cabin. The view is lovely and it is very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the hot tub both nights we were there, and had a campfire one night as well. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of cooking utensils, but you should bring any seasonings or things like oil if you plan to use them. Upstairs was nice - great view from the bedroom - although the bed wasn't the most comfortable. I would also recommend bringing your own pillows if you are at all picky. Overall, we loved it! We also drove out to Muse Vineyards, which we really enjoyed and recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about the Chalet. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time there. We are sorry that you did not find the beds comfortable. We just replace both beds last year with new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. We make every effort to update our properties and strive to make your stay as comfortable as we can. We hope this did not detract from your stay. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will come stay with us again in the future. Thank you, Derek Goebel/Owner

This was the perfect place for us!

The cabin was well kept and had a beautiful view from almost every room. The location is close to many caverns and Skyline Drive.
