The porch swing outback is fun for the kids, or a cozy place to snuggle with a loved one. A stone BBQ and outdoor fireplace is located just off the rear screen porch where your entertaining and cooking all come together. The home is large enough to accomodate a large family or two, yet the Master Bedroom suite is also perfect for that romantic getaway. Located on a quiet country road between the villages of Bentonville and Browntown, VA this is the perfect place to unwind.

You'll want to visit local winery Glen Manor Vineyard, Down River Canoe Company, Skyline Caverns, Luray Caverns, Shenandoah National Park and the Shenandoah River while you're here! Also nearby is Virginia Canopy Tours (Zip Line) Sample the local flavors and enjoy country living at it's best!

If you're looking for a great place in the country with gorgeous mountain views, this is it!

If you're looking a nice place to stay, unwind from your busy life, and relax, this is a great place to do it. The house is off the main road, yet close enough to Luray and Front Royal to make it an easy trip for whatever you're looking for. The Shenandoah River is only 2 miles from the house with Down River Canoe Company and other outfitters nearby. There are 6 golf courses within 30 minutes and nearby Vineyards include; Glen Manor Vineyards, Linden Vineyards, Chester Gap Cellars, Rappahannock Cellars, Desert Rose Winery and more!

Car: Necessary

Enjoy the scenic Shenandoah Valley and Shenandoah National Park while staying at our house. There is lots to do in the area, such as tubing or canoeing on the Shenandoah River. If you like to hike, there are some great paths nearby that go into the Shenandoah National Park. There are 6 golf courses within a 1/2 hour. A great area to go antiquing, country auctions, dining in Front Royal or Luray, civil war battlefield sites and reenactments, or horseback riding. Also in the area are Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns. Two ski resorts within 1 hour. (Bryce and Massanutten Resort). Finally, just a couple miles from the house is a great Winery (Glen Manor Vineyards) and many more wineries within about 1/2 hour. You can easily fill a week by sightseeing and don't forget to tour the scenic back roads. At the end of each day, kick back in the rocking chairs on the porch and enjoy the sunset mountain views and wildlife!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We own Buracker Construction LLC a Custom Home Builder in the Shenandoah Valley and decided to make this home a vacation rental. We thought offering this home as a vacation rental is a great way to share our favorite place.

Why the Owner Chose Bentonville, VA, USA:
We live and work in this area and think it's the best place to be. I grew up in the Washington area and moved here as a teenager. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wrap around porch with Cracker Barrel rockers, lends itself to relaxing times with friends. Get out of the rat race and unwind. The house is far enough away from Luray and Front Royal to make you feel your are getting away, yet close enough to all the fun things this area has to offer.
