About Anne

Anne Ulrich - I live in northern Virginia with my 2 daughters.

Anne purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Anne chose Shenandoah Valley

We bought this property so we could spend time here and share it too! Our kids are growing up fast and we realized the need to show them more than the suburban environment they live in. Luray has so much to offer: Luray Caverns, hiking, tubing, kayak/canoeing, mountain biking, campfires, Skyline Drive, not to mention all the stars! It's truly a great way to reconnect with your family and yourself.

What makes this cabin unique

There is not one home on the rental market in Luray that has better river views than we do. Our house is 30 feet from the river's edge. Step out the door and you are there!

A wonderful stay at Luray!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house and a wonderful property. We had so much fun relaxing and enjoying the river. The kids enjoyed the changed pace and scenery! This trip is one we will talk about for a long time! Too bad we weren't able to take a longer vacation! I highly recommend this rental and we hope to be back again.

Great mini vacation at the River House

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described and very well stocked with everything the guest needs. We were a group of six adults and spent three nights in June 2017. Loved the river and tubes and the fishing was fun. Thank you Ann.

Coffee or wine on the screened porch listening to the river and birds..a slice of heaven.

Definitely get your groceries before arriving. Food Lion & Walmart are approximately 14 miles from the house.

Yet another fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

I returned for another stay at Anne's wonderful home. This time, I had my very chic friend with me. In all honesty, I was convinced she would be whining the entire time, lusting for Saks and Bloomies.

Not even close. She loved the house, loved the river, loved everything - and we actually ended up extending our stay.

Anne was, as always, very gracious and helpful. As great as the house and location is, Anne's hospitality and personality makes it that much better.

The river crested when we arrived - which is a bit scary for city girls - but Anne kept track of the river for us and was constantly in touch, so I actually had fun (especially scaring my friend and telling her we're getting flooded with no way out hee hee).

Thank you, Anne! I will be back every chance I get.

Wonderful Week away from it All

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two small boys to the River House for spring break. The house was more spacious than the pictures let on, and it was nice to have a "home base" from which to visit other sights. The hot tub was wonderful for after the boys went to bed, and we appreciated having the river literally steps from our door. Our meals were enjoyed on the screen in porch where we could watch the water. Anne attended to all of my questions and concerns and answered in a timely manner. Would advise any staying here to make sure to get your groceries on the way in (we went to the Wal-Mart in Luray), as it is a bit of a hike down a dirt road to come back into town. Highly recommend!

Wonderful tranquil getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Anne is so easy to deal with. We were due to stay at the Riverhouse when the winterstorm was to hit the Virginia area. Anne called us before we had even left for our trip and we agreed to play it by ear. Communication was fantastic and we delayed our visit by a day due to the snow. When we did finally get to the Riverhouse we were delighted! The photos don't do the place justice, it's so spacious! We had more than enough room for the four of us and the kids loved the garden, or meadow as our little girl called it. The house has a lovely family feel, it has everything you need including lots of games, and is in such a beautiful spot. Anne has a great binder of information and we enjoyed doing a couple of the suggested walks in the snow! We really enjoyed our stay, and would thoroughly recommend the River House.
