Welcome to Rainbow View Cabin, less than an hour from the DC beltway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA with magnificent views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley! Enjoy remote solitude just 9 miles from the historic village of Front Royal. Get away to another world of stress-free country living.
(And at an elevation of 1,738 feet it's always 10-15 degrees cooler than the city!).
If Rainbow View is booked or you need a 3BR, please see our other cabin - Valley Vista, listing 906064.

There are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen (including icemaker, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, crock-pot, etc.), a washer/dryer, and fireplace*. Linens, towels and soap are providedǂ. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.
On the large deck, enjoy the hot tub and fire cauldron (wood supplied) with tables and chairs, and both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.)
Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive.
We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.
Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM
The last mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.
We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. We are sorry that we had to implement this fee, but people were not abiding by the previous policy. If you don't advise and pre-pay for pets, we will deduct the fee during the refund of your security deposit. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.
We welcome well behaved children.
You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .
Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.
In winter 4WD or AWD may be required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm. VRBO offers trip insurance. Enterprise in Front Royal has RAV4s for $70/day. In the event the road is impassible even for 4WD, rescheduling is allowed for available dates of equal value. (We live on the same road so we can keep you advised of current conditions.)
ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.
* Fireplace is for ambiance only. Continual use will cause bedrooms to become cold. It is for burning Duraflame-type logs only, and only one at a time. During cold weather, one log (a 3 hour burn) is furnished for each day of your stay. For a longer burn than that you should bring your own.
(Due to past issues, burning regular wood is allowed only in the cauldron on the deck. Filling the cabin with smoke may result in your security deposit being withheld.)
ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 4), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming.
We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and retirees. Please advise us at the time of your request and please be honest about your status. We have had issues in the past.
Please access and like our Facebook page - Rainbow View Cabin - as that is where we post info about local restaurants specials, events, info about Shenandoah Park and any discounts we are offering on the cabin.
********* Much to our dismay, VRBO / HomeAway has recently instituted a policy of charging guests a hefty 9% "service fee". We do not approve of this practice and are contemplating cancelling our listing. They claim they are providing added value to the traveler in terms of security. So far it has merely resulted in decreased bookings, as travelers are evidently boycotting VRBO / HomeAway. *********

About the owner: We live just down the road a piece.
Why the Owner Chose Linden, VA, USA:
We've lived in this little rural mountain community for 30 years, and we've long admired the view from this particular property, so when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we jumped at the chance!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
From the world's largest concentration of wild trillium to the abundant wildlife, whether sledding the hills, or just whiling away a lazy afternoon at the winery, we always enjoy each and every day on this mountain. Now you can also enjoy the view from the expanded deck and the hot tub.
