About the Property

NEW FOR 2016!!! SWEETWATER JUST GOT SWEETER!!!!!

NEWLY RENOVATED COTTAGE WITH A SECOND BEDROOM, EXPANDED DINING/SLEEPING AREA AND . . . . .
A HUGE 12’X40’ SCREENED IN PORCH OVER LOOKING THE RIVER!!!!

Relax and enjoy a cozy vacation with your family, friends and pets on the Shenandoah River.
Sweetwater Vacation Properties newly renovated cottage on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River (Mile 12) north of Luray, VA. Area offers excellent hunting as well as ultra-lite and fly-fishing for Small Mouth Bass, Brim, Red Eye Bass as well as baiting for old standbys like catfish and carp. There are numerous hiking and riding trails throughout the area and over 26 miles of good canoeing water with public access. If you are into plants and trees, there are a wide variety of both in the area. I also recommend a good book and a pair of binoculars for bird watching (Baltimore Orioles are nesting along the river in spring and early summer) or curl up by the campfire or in the hammock with that favorite novel you have been meaning to read. This is definitely Virginia Outdoors at it's finest!

Sweetwater Cottage, #5 Lorelei Lane, Luray, VA, is newly renovated and is situated on 3 secluded acres along the Shenandoah River). The Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove and oven, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, waffle maker, and a full bath with tub/shower combination. It now has two bedrooms, living room, dining area picnic tables, large fire pit, gas grill, and a NEW 12’x40’ screened-in porch with a spectacular river view. Sleeping arrangements in the cottage includes two queen size beds and one double futon bed in the living room and one double futon bed in the dining extension. There is DSL Internet and NETFLIX, TV/DVD player as well as a CD stereo player available. Bed linens are provided, but you will need to bring your own towels, sleeping bags, food, kitchen supplies and beverages.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Married in Washburn, WI, in 1974 and traveled to many different places while in the Army settling in Remington, VA (2004) with Bear (half lab and golden) and Daisy (Pound Puppy)! Jan is a highly successful domestic engineer and mother of Tim and Casey. John retired from the Army in 1995 and is still serving at PEO Soldier, Ft. Belvoir, VA. Jan and John enjoy fishing in both fresh and saltwater, being with our kids, and being of service to our Lord and Savior.

Why the Owner Chose Luray, VA, USA:
Sweetwater was love at first sight! We originally purchased it as a private retreat, but found that being able to show others the Virginia Outdoors and what a relaxing time was all about was extremely gratifying and decided to start sharing it with others . Life here moves at the speed of the river - very slowly! The river at Sweetwater washes away all the stresses associated with life in and around the National Capital region and rejuvenates the mind, body and soul as only the peace and solitude of the outdoors can.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Love sitting out along the river bank on a cool spring morning listening to the songs of the Baltimore Orioles or the owls hooting on a warm summer night while sleeping on the screened in porch. The peace and tranquility of floating down the river on a warm summers day while laying on an air mattress with my face submerged under water with mask and snorkel watching the river bottom and all the associated critters pass by. Or the joy of a “gourmet” smore cooked to perfection over a campfire while playing 4, 5, 6, and 12 stringed instruments and singing (or howling) with friends and family is one of life's greatest pleasures. Being rewarded with a nice bass as a result of a not so perfect cast. Finally, marveling at all of the wonders that surround you at Sweetwater and appreciating the beauty of God's creativity!
