Overview

About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-12)

This quaint, country home and cabin is located at the foot of a mountain overlooking the famous Shenandoah River known for its fishing and beauty. It is a rustic place with the basic for comforts, it is not a 5 star hotel that has everything perfect and super modern but more of a rustic, old grandma's home style. So please be aware of that fact so you don't get disappointed when you arrive and see that is not like a luxury resort.

CABIN AND MAIN FEATURES

The home has a large deck from which you witness the spectacular view by day of the Shenandoah River and Shenandoah Valley, which is surrounded by mountains full of forests. On the same deck by night you witness the starry night seeing the sky full of stars and planets! Also you can appreciate of all of these marvelous views while enjoy being in a nice hot tub. The home is locally known as “1 Little Vineyard by the River”, since it has a small and developing vineyard and as a result you will see this theme reflected inside the home through its decor. The kitchen, comes with most of what you need to cook or simply to serve prepared food you bring from area eateries. The living room has a convenient gas fireplace, nice flat screen TV and surround sound system where you and your kids can comfortably enjoy different shows or movies or simply play some nice music while you cook or enjoy conversations with your family and friends.

ACTIVITIES AND CONVENIENCES

Guests come to either rest or to enjoy the many activities the area offers, which include fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, mountain climbing, swimming or kayaking or canoeing. Those into the civil war will find many important historical sites or battle locations very close by. Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across from the home. The home is easily accessible from Washington DC or from Northern Virginia. Flights from anywhere in the country are usually reasonable so travel cost should not deter you. Those coming from outside the area will find it easy to travel to the area, since you have three major airports serving the area: Dulles International Airport, Washington Reagan Airport or Baltimore International Airport.

Come and enjoy the peaceful environment here at the home and at the same time have easy access to such notable places as the Smithsonian Museums, Capital, and the White House. Alternatively, you can simply drive down the famous and breathtaking Skyline Drive operated by the U.S. National Park Service, which is minutes from the home. The town of Luray is also an easy 15 minute drive from the home and there you will have access to shopping, restaurants and to the renowned Luray Caverns.

LAYOUT OF CABIN

The cabin sleeps up to 12 persons. For those wanting to know how private the bedrooms are, here is a description of cabin’s layout.

Keep in mind that the cabin is an A-frame cabin with a loft. The cabin has four bedrooms; two bedrooms have total privacy with doors, one that is the loft and offers some privacy and a smaller bedroom with no doors and therefore with little privacy. Here is a further description.

On the main floor is the master bedroom with a door that closes making the bedroom private. It has a queen size bed. You will find the master bathroom right in front of the master bedroom at the end of the hallway.

Also, on the main floor is a smaller bedroom that is between the A-frame portion of the home and the living room and kitchen area. It has three twin size beds, which are ideal for children, teens or single adults. This bedroom does not have a door.

The bedroom in the loft does not have doors, but yet the area is relatively private, since you have to be on the top floor to have clear view of the main bedroom. The loft has a full-size bed and a queen size futon.

The basement is finished and it has a private bedroom with a queen size bed and it has a door that closes with a living area right outside with a couch that converts into a full-size bed. The basement is not closed in, but rather is at the level of the driveway. It has its own private entry and sliding glass doors. So it’s not claustrophobic.

The main floor to the cabin has the main amenities needed including kitchen, living room, bathrooms and access to the main deck where the Hot tub is. There is no need to have access to the basement unless you have a very large party. Please know that most of the time, groups of nine (9) adults and (2) two children will not have access to the basement, since the main floor with the loft of the A-Frame accommodates and is able to sleep these many guests. Parties that are larger than 11 will have access to the basement, which will sleep up to four adults (has a single full-size bed in a private bedroom and has a full-size sleeper couch). Access to the basement when you have less than 9 adults and two children will incur an additional cost. Please know that at present the basement is being remodeled and painted and is not available regardless of cost. Once it is finished the policy listed will be in place.

The kitchen is a large kitchen with all the basics provided for doing basic cooking (micro, dishwasher, fridge, dishes, pots and silverware).

The main living room is next to the kitchen and there is where you will find one full bathroom. The living room has a fireplace, flat screen TV (50') with cable and surround sound system.

About Fernando & Sissy Soriano

I grew up on a ranch in a rural part of California. Traveling often to Washington DC I found it was a perfect place to stay in touch with nature and to be in a peaceful environment far from the busy urban world. Yet I liked having access to Washington DC, which has all the entertainment one can possibly have from any large city.

Fernando & Sissy Soriano purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Fernando & Sissy Soriano chose Shenandoah Valley

I chose this place because it is full of nature and beauty, which it affords access to the nation’s capital. Whether one wishes to take it easy and just let time stop or be active in water sports or hiking, this place is ideal for both. I cannot think of a more beautiful home for getting away from it all!

What makes this cabin unique

Guests have access to a private entrance to the Shenandoah River, which is just across the home. The area was recently designated a national landmark by the U.S. Department of Interior because of its beauty and historical importance. In particular, a favorite activity is to take the Skyline Drive, which is operated by the National Park Service. Alternatively, visit the Luray Caverns, which is just a 15 minute drive from the home. Shopping and restaurants are just 15 minutes from the home.

Good location, beautiful view, but...

  • 3 of 5

Family of 9 stayed at this cabin for 2 nights 3 days. Very convenient to those located in NoVa. We enjoyed the hot tub, grilling food, the deck/ gorgeous view, & the near by Lurray Caverns!

One of the few issues we had was that the home wasn't very clean. Cobwebs in the corners, beer pong balls under a couch, & a coffee maker molded from top to bottom. This wouldn't be a big problem if there was no "cleaning fee" or if the house keeper didn't ask for "tips$" but that's not the case.

We really enjoyed spending family time in such a secluded, natural location but we couldn't wait to get home to our own showers & beds!

Just be aware of this before booking (I'm sure some of you have a cleaning standard even higher than mine.)

We thank the owners for allowing us into their home & urge them to make changes w the house keeping.

PS if you want access to the river find out the details about entering before you get there. I did not receive a response from the owner during my stay & was unable to experience the river at all.

The place was very peaceful! I would go back without a doubt! Plenty of space to just relax!

  • 5 of 5

The place was nice all in all! I expected there to be a few bugs here and there simply because of location but that didn't stop our good time. The neighbors seemed to be friendly as well! Great place to visit if you want good ole Mother Nature and the great outdoors feel! The owners were responsive to our questions about anything we asked. I would recommend others to visit. As humans we all have our own opinions about things, this is mine. I could've gotten something different but this met al our needs for the type of getaway we were looking for! Thanks to the owners for the good time!

Great cabin by the water. We had a perfect Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I needed a nice and cozy gateway for Christmas. We found this place because it was close to the mountains, had a Jacuzzi, had enough beds, and was really affordable for the season we were traveling in. It had everything we needed and perfect according to the listing provided.

To be completely honestly, after we got there, the place was much better than expected. The Cabin was really clean and had more than enough room for all of us. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing food we brought along. It was really an amazing retreat. It was quite and refreshing from our daily lives in the DC area with work and life responsibilities.

But what we appreciated the most was that the owners were always responsive if we needed anything. Any questions we had, they answered right away. Matter of fact, they went over and beyond. My friend forgot this coffee machine behind after we left and made it back to Northern Virginia. They contact me and let me know that someone forgot the item. They ask if I would like it shipped or if I would like to come back to pick it up. They went out of they'’re way and shipped it for us and really saved us the hassle of having to drive back.

We went to multiple cabins before, but this one was by far the most welcoming one. I am sure we will be coming back very soon.

Thank you again Fernando & Sissy for the nice experience,

Mark
