The Blue Span Shenandoah Cabin is a romantic and private weekend getaway cabin with fantastic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley. The cabin is a short walk from the Shenandoah River. The cabin is complete with a freestanding fireplace for those special evenings.
This is a very clean modern cabin with rustic touches that brings you comfortably to fully enjoy the splendor of the Shenandoah Valley. You can enjoy cooking out with the charcoal BBQ grill in the evenings. Or you can lazily watch from the hammock the colors of fall or the sunset illuminate the Blue Ridge Mountains as you relax.
This cabin has two very comfortable queen-sized bedrooms, a full bath and fully equipped kitchen including microwave and coffee maker. All pots, pans, utensils, and dinnerware are provided along with basic condiments required for a relaxing stay.
There is a freestanding fireplace in the great room with a sleep sofa. The great room has ample glass for you to enjoy the views while relaxing in front of a fire. We also provide pressed wood fire logs to burn in the freestanding fireplace.
The views from the cabin are nothing short of spectacular. See the sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains in the morning while enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee or enjoy the sunsets in the evening while eating outside.
The legendary Shenandoah River is but a short walk from the knoll where the cabin sits overlooking it. This stretch of the river is noted for outstanding smallmouth bass fishing and excellent canoeing.
The Shenandoah National Park is a short drive with its excellent hiking trails and fine native brook trout streams. Nearby is a host of recreational activities to include canoeing, tubing, hiking, biking and fishing. Also, a number of excellent tourist attractions are close by.
All linens and towels are provided for two beds.

This is Kathy's private guest cabin located through the woods from her house. It is maintained so she can have family members and guests stay in comfort enjoying the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 1995
Why Owner chose Luray
As a good friend of mine said, this is one of the last great places left. The natural beauty and splendor of the Shenandoah Valley is a national treasure.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is very comfortable relaxing cabin with some of the most outstanding views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah National Park. You over look the legendary Shenandoah River that winds slowly through the valley. It is just a short walk down to it. The sun sets on the Blue Ridge in the evening showing you why it is so aptly named. The sun rises over the Blue Ridge each morning while you relax and have your morning coffee. The wall of glass in the living room / great room that connects to the dining area and kitchen provides unparalleled vistas all day long.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Unbelievably scenic and comfortable
I surprised my husband with a birthday weekend at Blue Span and we had the best time! The weather didn't particularly cooperate with some rain and fog, but it didn't take anything away from the coziness and beauty of this place. In fact it may have added - the sound of the rain in the trees with a fire indoors was lovely!
The view is just utterly spectacular here, rain or shine. Even with low hanging clouds along the mountain tops it's one heck of a sight. The lot is quite unique for a hilltop cabin, with some flat area out back to relax on the deck or eat outdoors while taking in the flowers outside and the mountain scenery. The back of the home has an overhang, which is genius - we could sit outside in the rain with some wine and stay dry. We had sun our last morning and soaked it up coffee in hand.
The house itself is cozily appointed, everything you could ever want or need, down to bath products Chris and Kathy kindly provide. Comfy couches and a few movies to choose from, and comfy beds and sheets. No complaints!
You can walk down to the river and a fishing pond, and just down the road is Shenandoah River Outfitters to take out canoes/kayaks/etc. The town of Luray is adorable, with a very nice coffee shop, brewery, and a few surrounding wineries and distilleries. Though we didn't hike due to the weather, it was clear top notch hiking is in this area. Definitely something for everyone.
We hope to come back in the summer to take advantage of the river access and star gaze. Absolutely my favorite cabin I've ever had the pleasure of staying in, and Chris and Kathy make sure you have everything you need. I don't think this one can be topped!
This is lovely home in a beautiful location with a spectacular view of the mountains and close to the river. We spent most of our time in the backyard enjoying the serenity and views. Would definitely come back!
Nice charming cabin away from it all
Lovely cabin perfect for our needs. Usually we spend all the time hiking and use the lodging as a place to crash. This one was so welcoming, it made us want to stay. Did our hikes, but looked forward to returning to the beautiful views, comforts and special landscape touches provided by the owner. Listed as a cozy romantic cottage, which it is, but we used it for a family birthday get away. Perfect for a small family or two couples. Kitchen well appointed with little extras that were very helpful.
We are glad you enjoyed your relaxing get-a-way with us and appreciated all the special touches and extras that Kathy has provided for our guests. Looking forward to seeing you again for another get-a-way with us.
Clean and cozy cabin with a spectacular view.
The place was nice, clean, and comfortable. The directions provided by the owner were perfect and necessary since GPS gave out with a good distance left. The view of the mountains was beautiful as was the view of the sky. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet mountain getaway that's not too far from civilization.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and was able to escape and relax from the hustle and bustle of hectic everyday things and just relaxed and enjoyed the views. Looking forward to seeing you again on your next get-a-way.
Perfect little cabin with a view
Don’t plan too many activities because you will want to spend hours just sitting and enjoying the view. We had a lovely couple nights!
We are glad you were able to relax at the Blue Span Shenandoah Cabin and enjoy the views. We enjoyed having you as our guests and hope to see you again.
This is a return visit for us and the mountain view from the house is just as beautiful as it was last summer. Once again the cabin had the personal touches of basic condiments provided as well as pretty pansies set out on the patio. The owners Chris and Kathy are close by and quick to respond to any questions. The short walk to the Shenandoah river and path along the river make for a very nice hike. The coziness of the cabin and the view from the back windows are very special and we hope to return once again.
We enjoyed having you as our guests again and appreciate your comments.
It is actually the front of the house that is all glass and faces the magnificent views of the valley and mountains. You actually pull into the back of the house from the main road into the parking area. The house was orientated to take advantage of these views.
It was great seeing you both and meeting your son. It was good talking with you and looking forward to seeing you next time.
Chris and Kathy.
