The rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley are rich in Virginia history and easily accessible by Interstate I-81 or I-64. Guests may ski, fish, canoe, tube, bike, hike, hunt, or just relax and unwind to the soothing murmur of the Shenandoah River and cool mountain breezes. Other popular pastimes within easy driving distance include Civil War battlefields and museums, national parks, caverns, wineries, golf, tennis, horse back riding, and the many specialty and antique shops.

Why Barb chose Massanutten

While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and have used the home for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added two additional Massanutten homes to our inventory, including The View at Massanutten, and rented to more than 1,000 families. We hope you will enjoy The View at Massanutten as much as our other guests have.

What makes this house unique

The View at Massanutten is one of the best homes that we own at Massanutten Resort. Aptly named, The View provides some of the best views of the ski hills on the mountain. The View is the perfect home to accommodate family gatherings, both large and small. As with our other homes, The View is exceptionally well appointed and because of its new construction, is in pristine condition. The View is stocked with activities, such as foosball, movies, an arcade game, kids toys, and books. The View is also uniquely situated at the top of the mountain, right in the middle of all of the activities. It backs up to the George Washington National Forest and is perfect for enjoying your getaway vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The exterior pictures do not do this home much justice. It is simply gorgeous and it was too much house for us. We take a family trip together every year and vowed not to repeat any sites. My family seems perfectly willing to break that vow. LOL.

Roomy and well-located

  • 4 of 5

The house is in the Massanutten Resort, and has lots of activities and is close to nearby attractions that we all enjoyed. This was an annual family get together, parents, 2 adult kids with spouses, and their kids for a total of 6 adults and 5 teens/kids. The house is quite roomy and laid out well so we were all able to fit comfortably. The view of the mountainside from the deck was gorgeous. The house is well furnished for a large group (large dining table, sofas, dishes, etc). Note that the driveway is STEEP but we did manage to park a car (in the garage) and keep a minivan and an SUV in the driveway. The house is built into the mountainside so there is no yard - just a 10 foot wide area of rocks/dirt behind the house taken up by a small deck and a picnic table. Our little kids still managed to run around though. There were a few minor things (burned out light bulbs, one shower not working, etc) that did not interfere with our stay so we left a note for the on-site manager. There was a more serious issue with the air conditioning. We were there during a heat wave (temps in the high 80s/low 90s) and the temp in the living area (upstairs: 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, etc) was 86 degrees. I called the on-site manager and he told me to shut the vents in the downstairs rooms and make sure the upstairs vents were open, and if the unit was running then the air conditioning was working. Even after shutting the vents, the a/c never cooled the area although the outside unit was running almost constantly. Thankfully we were out of the house for the most part during the day, and by opening windows we were able to cool it down almost enough during the night.
