Overview

About the property

Large rental near town and close to it all

Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley is Spring Farm Retreat. This property is rich with over 200 years of history, dating back to the Civil War Era. Spring Farm offers 10 acres of secluded property with breathtaking mountain views. Curl up with a good book or enjoy a relaxing walk by the natural spring. You may run into the duck family out for a stroll. When evening comes, and the sun is setting, throw a steak on the grill and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains. If you’re lucky you`ll catch a glimpse of our many deer running across the front field. After dark wander down to the outdoor fire pit and don`t forget the marshmallows. This is a property where memories are made to last a life time!

All bathrooms in the main house are located on the second floor. The gas log fireplace is turned off every June 1 until September 15. It is unavailable for use during these dates.

Spring Farm is conveniently located to all major attractions. We are 2 miles east of the world-famous Luray Caverns and 8 miles west of the Shenandoah National Park Thornton Gap Entrance. 31 miles to Massanutten Resort, and the George Washington National Forest Storybook Trail is 15 miles away.

Great house!!!!

  • 4 of 5

I have many, many great things to say about this cabin. We had a group of 6 adults, a 3 year old, and a 7 month old. The house was updated, very clean inside, had the perfect amount of space for our needs, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Being right on the river was lovely and the grass had all been mowed before we got there. There were two fire pit areas that were great (one by the house and one right on the river). Perfect distance to the mountains, town, and river activities. It was great that there were some toys and books left in the living room for my two young children!! And even better there were some birds that had nested around the house. I miss waking up and sitting on the deck or the bench by the river with my cup of coffee!

I did not give this location 5 stars because we experienced lots of spiders (I know..I know...we're in the woods). Maybe the deck and around the house had been cleaned of spider webs before we arrived, but it did not seem to have been. I didn't expect to be bug free, but there were a lot of BIG ones hanging right outside all the doors and windows (luckily only two harmless daddy long legs in the house). We couldn't find a broom to wipe away the webs outside, so we bought one and left one for the next guests. Once we removed the webs, there were fewer, but they were still around. Add to that there were wasp nests above the sliding glass doors, which is probably a bit more serious of an issue. The other issue was the grill could use to be replaced, but it works.

I would definitely recommend this place and will book this place for future trips!!!! Just wipe down the house of all the webs when you arrive if they haven't been already!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with Allstar Lodging. We have contacted our pest control company to do a more thorough job, but as you stated, there will be bugs in the woods. We have also made sure a broom is available for future guests. Thank you and we hope to accommodate you on your next visit.

My wife and I and our two...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two dogs stayed here and had the best time. The cabin was great, right on the river. The dogs had a great time also. The cabin was close enough to stores and yet far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.
