A great place to stay with friends and family
We had a great time at Cabell Cottage over an early fall long weekend that was both sunny and warm. The cottage is complete with all the comforts of home and includes comfortable seating in the living room, a nice TV, and a great kitchen. The high-speed internet was a bonus. We enjoyed relaxing with friends on the porch and down by the scenic Cowpasture River. The river was perfect for canoeing or casting out a line. The scenery at Mont Shenandoah can’t be beat and we had fun playing tennis and hiking with friends. Although it is very quiet (compared to the city noise we hear daily), Mont Shenandoah and the Cabell Cottage were easy to locate and a very pleasant drive. The owner could not have been more hospitable or enjoyable to talk with and really knows the area well. When we come back in the future, we hope the cottage will be available for us to book again for a longer stay. Without a doubt, this cottage gets 5 stars.
Coziest place to stay!
I have stayed at Cabell Cottage many times and absolutely adore it. It is so cozy and comfy with all of the amenities! I have spent many nights catching up with my family on the porch or having a glass of wine in the living room. It is a great spot within one of the best pieces of land in the world!
Most wonderful cabin ever--perfect for families!
I have stayed at Cabell Cottage for the past 4 summers and love it! It is cozy and comfortable with room enough for a family of 6. It has all the modern conveniences with the feel of a rustic country cabin surrounded by the beautiful surroundings of Camp Mont Shenandoah. Sit on the porch and enjoy bird watching or explore the beautiful Cowpasture River!
The perfect getaway!!!
I spent a long weekend there with some friends, and it was the perfect getaway. The cottage is so comfy, and well appointed - we had everything we needed. The owner was very accessible, and communication was great on all arrangements. The front porch is a great place to read or have a cocktail, and the tennis courts, walking paths, and river are right there for some additional activities! I cant wait to go back!!!
Beautiful, well-appointed, comfortable
A group of friends and I stayed here for a weekend reunion, and we couldn't have been more satisfied with the experience. The cabin is charming, clean, and well-appointed, and we had absolutely everything that we needed. Six of us stayed, and everyone had a bed -- so it fits quite a group! The setting is absolutely gorgeous, and we enjoyed walking around the camp, relaxing outside, and simply having the space to be together and catch up. We went into nearby Hot Springs (about a 30 minute drive) and enjoyed dinner one night; the other night, we prepared dinner in the cabin's kitchen, which had everything that we needed to do so. The scenery in Bath County is absolutely incomparable, and we spent some quality time driving around and enjoying the beautiful mountain views. Highly recommend this rental and will absolutely be back to repeat our wonderful experience there! Many thanks to Ann, who was available during our stay to answer questions and provide recommendations for nearby activities we might enjoy.
Bath County Shangri-La
You can tell from the minute you walk in that Cabell Cottage is a place designed and decorated for living full-time, not just some slapdash rental staged for photos. It's beautifully appointed with art and antiques, but also cozy and approachable, with comfortable furniture you sink into, plush rugs, and wood paneling in the snug family room. It feels like a real home away from your home. In warm weather, be sure to open the windows at night to hear the tree frogs lull you to sleep! Walk down the hill to swim or tube in the cool, green waters of the Cowpasture River. Play a round of tennis on the courts right outside the cottage. A little further afield, drive west and go hiking for spectacular birdseye views of the Alleghany Mountains and the George Washington National Forest. Then come back and make dinner in the kitchen at Cabell Cottage--they have everything you need if you want to eat in. Just be sure to make time to enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine on the porch--in one of the rocking chairs, as the universe intended. I can think of no finer way to unplug than to pack a bag with books and wine and comfy clothes, and head to the quiet, charming Cabell Cottage. Breathe out. You're in Bath County now.
