About Scott and Vivian Dahl

After 30 years, we are almost ready to retire. We have two kids to get through college and then we are done! We just purchased this beautiful home and hope to live here someday. My husband grew up in Wisconsin and is a reverent Packers fan. I am from New Jersey and a Giants fan. We have had many fun games at the opposite side of the room of each other. We worked together in Washington, D.C. for 10 years until we moved to work at our training center in Georgia. We hope you love our home. And, please let us know what we can do to improve your stay.

Why Scott and Vivian Dahl chose McGaheysville

This is our first adventure in renting a home. This house has been well taken care for. We loved this house since the minute we seen it. This house has beautiful curb appeal. Front deck is perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. The raised ceiling draws you into this adorable cottage. There is tons of character everywhere you look. This home is perfect for a large family spending a holiday, special event or just a perfect weekend.

What makes this cottage unique

The wood work in the house is what drew me to this house. My family is from Norway so I can't wait to add some Nordic touches to the home. The loft is very cozy with places to sleep and play. There is also a bedroom upstairs and a half bath. The bathroom has a unique window to holler down to below.

The master bedroom is nice and quiet. We had several college kids here that were pretty rowdy. But we barely heard them from this large master bedroom. The master bath has been recently upgraded.

Perfect Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage over Easter weekend and used it as our home base to visit colleges with my son. It was the perfect location to not only visit several colleges, but also to take in Luray Caverns. The cottage itself was very cute and extremely well maintained. The biggest issues we had were figuring out the wifi password and not wanting to leave!

This little cottage was perfect. The house was clean and was very spacious. The kids had their own loft while the adults could chill on the main level. The one thing that I think was particularly noteworthy was how clean and organized it was.

We will definitely be coming back!

Perfect family cottage for all Massanutten has to offer

  • 5 of 5

It is very close to the resort but given the sub zero temps we spent a lot of time cozy inside and it was perfect for our 2 families (4 adult, 4 kids plus baby) Kids loved having separate space to play in the loft, including lots of places to hide. Scott warned us and he was right -the loft stairs are steep for young kids though, so bring a gate if you have under 3's. We stayed in the Master with baby which meant no one else was disturbed at night (it is nicely secluded on one side of the house). Very comfortable beds. Sun-room was chilly (obviously) but having that room and the living space meant all TV tastes could be accommodated and no one felt on top of each other. It has all amenities you need.

My only suggestion is to leave a list on the fridge with details of things like WiFi password, who to contact in event of x, whether to put sheets and towels in the washer on check out, any house quirks etc -would help renter and owner alike!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A family getaway for 8 adults and two toddlers. The cabin was great. The beds were very comfortable. It snowed during the night which caused me some anxiety about getting down the street the next day but it was unfounded fear. The streets were salted and mostly clear by the next morning.

Very nice and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was really good. Price is reasonable and the cottage was very cozy and location is great. We had all amenities needed.

If I was to make any complaint, the only downside is that at night time, it got really cold inside the bedrooms. Upgrading the windows would make this little place just perfect!

Quaint Cottage, perfect for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Vivian and Scott's cottage. The cottage was beautiful and perfect for our large group. There were enough beds/futons to sleep our group (11 adults) comfortably. All the bedrooms had adjoining patio overlooking the woods, it was a beautiful sight to wake up to. Additionally, the cottage had all the amenities like dishwasher/kitchen utensils/laundry etc. Overall, we would strongly recommend this place.
