About the property

One Bedroom, One and a Half Bathrooms Sleeps Four

A Perfect Fantasy Escape. 650 sq ft Cottage is beautifully secluded on 10 acres with a private pond. Sit in the hot tub and watch the waterfall cascade into a rock pool and flow into a beautiful 15,000 sq/ft lined swimming pond...or sit in the rock pool under the waterfall and you will think you must be in Hawaii.The expansive lanai and deck are perfect for catching the sun; alfreco dining under the stars; hanging out with friends; reading your favorite book...you name it and it will be as good as anything you've imagined. The beach has a zero depth entry for lounging or playing in the water. Inside this gem you will find everything you need for a delightful stay: From the leather lounge and viking bed you can watch the fireplace or the large flat screen TV to the rainfall shower with natural stone and tile. Only a two minute walk from the scenic Shenandoah River. Skyline Drive, hiking and biking trails, 100 holes of golf, shopping, restaurants only 10-20 minutes away!

Cozy, clean, felt far away from everything but actually close to food and shopping

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin. It is clean, modern, and updated with beautiful lines. Fully stocked kitchen. Our favorite thing was breakfast in the breakfast nook, where we talked for hours and just relished the quiet ambiance and the beautiful water view. The hot tub was great and fully functional. If you are looking for a true “getaway” feel with a small group (maybe 2-4 people), this is the place! We will certainly be back. We felt secure with our AWD vehicle, but probably could have traversed the gravel road in a 2WD as well, but I wouldn’t prefer it. But that isn’t a critique, simply a note for planning the trip!

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our multi-day stay and absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away. The views were wonderful and we enjoyed taking advantage of the trails leading to the nearby river and all through the surrounding areas. While it was too cold to enjoy the pond, the hot tub was great. The cottage was well maintained and included the basic amenities we needed (including cooking utensils, citronella candles for outside, and Netflix access!) and we especially appreciated that we could bring our dog with us. We will be coming back again.

Peaceful, beautiful, tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely an amazing place. Natural beauty, abundance of nature - deer, turkeys, turtles, eagles, hawks, geese, king fishers and so much more. Soothing waterfall and pond right at the footsteps of the romantic cottage. All you need is right there, no need to ever leave. You'll probably wish you had stayed longer. Total relaxation if you want it, yet just a few minutes from town and local eateries, breweries and wineries. The owner/manager are wonderful to work with. They made the booking, reservation and payment process very easy. The cottage arrival instructions were very easy to follow (hot tub, waterfall, fireplace and appliances etc. ) which made our stay even better. Plenty of trails to walk and places to explore. We couldn't have had a better place to spend our relaxation time - we loved it and our pups loved it. A true gem.

Privacy, privacy, privacy!!!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving to this property you know you are in for a treat. The bungalow is set in a buccolic valley surrounded by trees, wildflowers, and beautiful boulders. We enjoyed 3 days of private, uninterrupted peace and quiet with our dogs. The dogs loved the pond while we enjoyed the hot tub. The waterfall and fountain are a nice addition to the already perfect ambiance. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the bungalow is just the right size for 2 adults. We cannot wait to return and hope to make this an annual vacation spot! We visited the national park, skyline caverns, and backroom brewery. We did a quick hike on the walking trails on the property as well. Last comment- the house is well insulated because the frogs and crickets are deafening in the early evening hours yet you can hardly hear them when inside.
