A Perfect Place to Unwind!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This secluded cabin retreat is nestled between the George Washington National Forest; offering private access to the legendary Shenadoah River.

Picture yourself in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley relaxing in a hot tub under a canopy of majestic oaks listening to the sounds of the forest and the nearby Shenandoah River.

Our cozy 2 bedroom cabin with private loft offers all the comforts to make your stay a memorable experience and quiet respite from the stresses of life. Sleeping 2 to 6 people, it is the perfect honeymoon getaway or the ideal location for a family escape.

With two queen sized bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, a sofa and rocking chair, it is the perfect place to find repose in a welcoming and relaxing environment.

This beautiful cabin has a little something for everyone. A quiet walk in the woods, reading in front of the fire, small mouth bass fishing from the river's bank, roasting marshmallows around an outdoor fire pit, or renting a canoe from nearby Shenandoah River Outfitters.

We're just a Cast-a-way!

Pictures Don't Do This Place Justice!

  • 5 of 5

I came here with my girlfriend for the weekend as a getaway from the stress and noise of the suburban life. It is perfect if you really want to be somewhere secluded and away from it all. The only noises we heard were the animals at night. In terms of the cabin itself, the pictures really don't do it justice. Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. Also, there were many kitchen utensils for use which made things easier for us in terms of packing.

We already really liked cabins and now we want one for ourselves.

Overall we had no complaints at all.

Many thanks from the owners!

This was a wonderful place to spend a weekend. The cabin was beautiful and our dog loved being able to run outside off leash. A great location for hiking and just enjoying the outdoors.thanks!

Thank you so much!


If I have any suggestions it would be to add dimmer switches to the lighting.

Perfect "Cast-Away" Cabin 9/16/17 - 9/24/17

  • 5 of 5

I don't believe I've ever been in a cabin with a layout better than this one. As previous reviewers have stated, the photos don't really do this place justice. Just an absolutely fantastic place to escape the craziness of the world. Eight nights didn't seem like enough, but alas, all good things come to an end whether we like it or not :)

Perfect Location

Just the right amount of privacy

Spacious property

I will definitely be staying here again!

Thanks Angela and Christian!

About Angela & Christian Goebel

Christian and Angela Goebel live in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley with their four outgoing children. As part-owner of Shenandoah River Outfitters, they are accustomed to spending their days immersed in the beauty of their natural surroundings, canoeing, tubing, rafting, or fishing. Their mountain paradise also offers them the opportunity to hike, horseback ride, ski, hunt, or soar over the ridges as autumn colors turn to snow capped peaks.

Desiring to share a rich heritage with others, they purchased two plots of land surrounded by National Forest and began construction of Cast-A-Way Cabins. In 2008 they started with Cast-A-Way cabin and in February of 2009 Reel-It-In had its grand opening. They are thankful to have a place where couples and families can enjoy a secluded spot, as they take time out to slow life's pace.

The Goebel Family has been on several missions trip to Nicaragua and they are very involved in their local church. Christian is a builder and flight instructor and Angela is a nurse and a leader for Weight Watchers. They enjoy every opportunity they have to gather by the river at the cabins with their children, to soak in the hot tub, relax with a good movie, share a family meal or sit around the fire pit under the open sky.

Angela & Christian Goebel purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Angela & Christian Goebel chose Luray

Being in a family of cabin owners, after many years of hearing what a wonderful opportunity it would be for us to start our own cabin business, it has been a blessing now six years later to have met so many people with similar interests as ours! We have appreciated the opportunity to share a little bit of this beautiful county in your 'home away from home!' With our two boys now in college, the cabins are helping us provide an education for our kids and also giving them an opportunity to help out with the family workload whenever they are home with us. Those who visit often return and we are blessed to have met so many that become like family! Rather than leaving the lights on, 'We leave the key in the box for you!'

What makes this cabin unique

Unlike many vacation properties in our area, our cabins are not located in a development. The cabin has its own private driveway, is walking distance to the Shenandoah River and is in a very tranquil and peaceful setting, which lends itself to relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you so much for a fantastic weekend....It was more than we

thought! This was a dream I personally had imagined for a long time. I have

no complaints and will recommend this cabin, the beauty of the mountain, all

of nature at it's best to everyone and anyone wanting to spend time alone, in

thought, or with a special one. It was all we wanted and much more than

expected. We especially loved sitting out on the deck with our hot apple

cider talking and laughing, while the moon and stars kept us company.

Thank you again!
