From prompt replies to our pre-check-in queries, to the joys of being immersed in nature (yet able to enjoy the comfortable amenities!), our hopes were exceeded.

average rating of 3.5 based on 44 reviews

The cabin smelled of smoke when we arrived. When walking on the floors our feet became black. There was a general film throughout the cabin. A deep cleaning had obviously not been done in a long time. The basic cleaning was fine (sheets, bathroom) but a true deep cleaning (wiping down the walls and scrubbing the floors) had not been done in a long time. Also the quality of how the cabin was built was poor (could see the light coming through the edges of the wall from one bedroom to the other), nails coming up in the deck, etc.

Quiet and secluded. Make sure your vehicle is capable of going off road.

  • 4 of 5

Very remote and off the "grid". The directions were spot on and make sure you print the guided roads directions.

Great for enjoying the great out doors, hiking photography with the Skyline Drive and the National Park near by. The cabin could use a tech refresh. We enjoyed the down time with our dogs!

Small town of Luray was friendly with some great places to eat.

Beautiful Scenery and Location, Terrible Service

  • 3 of 5

The location of this place is beautiful, especially since we were fortunate to come here while the leaves were still in full color. Had everything we wanted, a hot tub, fire pit, and slightly off the beaten path. We had a splendid time, making the most of the great weather and serenity this place offered.

However, there were a few problems. 1) The confirmation email sent me to the wrong cabin. We rounded the development thinking we were lost, but in reality we were just didn't think that it was the right place because there were already people there. Luckily, the people staying at that cabin were nice and let us use their land phone to contact Misty, because there's no cell service. She informed me that I should have double checked the booking, that there were communication issues, etc. If I get a confirmation email, with instructions on how to get to an unknown place, to an address I don't know, I am not going to assume it's the wrong address! Why was this not monitored?!

2) Dead bugs everywhere. A simple sweep over would have corrected this problem, yet it was just left there for us to find. Pleasant. We ended up cleaning it because it was piling up entirely too much for our comfort.

3) They do not provide you with towels. There was no where on the description of the listing or the confirmation email that stated that they do not provide that, therefore we were out of towels. All calls to Misty went unanswered.

Good news, the hot tub was clean and in working order. It maintained a comfortable temperature and there were beautiful stars to look at while sitting in there. There was a great little area for our dog to roam around without getting lost. The overhang on the deck came in handy when it started raining while we were barbecuing. Overall, we made the best of what we had. While we loved the location, the service was simply not there and the issues we ran into were huge headaches that could have easily been corrected, but was ignored. For the price of this place, I would have expected much more.

The view of the sky from the hottub was nice!

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was nice and clean. The beds however, made the stay less than pleasant. We tried both beds and found them to be of poor quality or just worn out. For the cost of the unit, bedding should of been of high quality. We did not find much in the movie or game collection that was stated, but didn't matter since we spent most of the time away. The map in the cabin showing the location of the lake will send you on a search that for us turned out "not found". If the weather had been nicer this would be another source of irritation. Again, for cost, there should also be a shower available.

Miserable Weekend

  • 1 of 5

We rented this cabin for the weekend. The reviews noted that the property manager had been unresponsive to complaints in the past but the manager had responded to the reviews, claiming that all of the problems had been fixed or were the fault of the renters. In particular, the cabin was promoted specifically as having an outdoor hot tub perfect for relaxing that prior renters had problems with.

I contacted the p.m. before renting and specifically asked whether the hot tub was fixed. The p.m. responded that it had and would be checked and cleaned before our arrival, so I booked the cabin.

When we arrived we were surprised to discover that hot tub water could not reach above a tepid 87 degrees even after 24 hours of running the heater. The water was not cooling off (the outside temps were very cold) but instead the water coming out of the heater was itself no hotter than 87 degrees. It had clearly not been fixed and, just as bad, was dirty. A brown scum floated on the water's surface. We could not use the tub which had been the primary reason for renting this particular cabin.

The rest of the weekend was consistent. The heating register in the bathroom didn't work; making that a frigid experience. The kitchen was poorly equipped and some utensils, such as the bottle opener, were broken. A telephone repair man stopped in unannounced and interrupted us in order to fix the phone ... except that the phone wasn't broken. Also, we had no notice from the p.m. he was coming.

There were other minor things but the bottom line is that all we wanted was a relaxing weekend to unwind and it was ruined.
