About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

The best log cabin in Jewell Hollow, Luray Virginia and yes it is ADA compliant! Located near the peak of the Shenandoah Mountains/Skyline Drive, “A Buck’s Peak” is a quiet hide-away that accommodates peace and tranquility to help you and your family relax and “re-charge” the batteries. Four master bedrooms – 3 king beds and 1 queen, “A Buck’s Peak” sleeps 10 (with built in bunk beds) and brags the best views on the mountain. One jet-soaking tub in the upstairs master bedroom and the queen bedroom has an ADA compliant bathroom and shower. Both basement bedrooms have full baths! Hot tub (8-person, 120 jets), 55-inch Sony television with DIRECTV, stainless steel appliances, DVD with DVD library, screened-in porch, jet bathtubs upstairs, and a game room complete with a shuffleboard table, dart board and a Sony Play Station 1 (with games) are just some of the amenities that will ensure you and your family enjoy your stay. We have a super large fire-pit and wood is not provided. Additionally, we have two grills; one charcoal and one propane gas. Basic grilling utensils are there. We do not guarantee that the propane tank will be full - check the tank before grilling; please bring your own charcoal). Kitchen has granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and plates to cook your meal and enjoy it! Sure, you can do your laundry at the cabin - full washer and dryer units are located next to the game rooms. Wi-fi/internet is NOT available; some guests use a cellular device with personally-owned hotspot - dependent on your cellular carrier. Verizon seems to be best. Pets are certainly welcome and we have a fenced in pet run for exercise. Please do not leave your pet in the pen if you leave the area; pets are confined to that space and other wildlife are interested. Additionally, if you leave your pet alone in the cabin, you must put the pet in a crate; crates are not provided i.e. you must bring your own. Pet fee is $40 for one pet, $80 for two pets or more. First 40 yards of drive is concrete - after the first 40 yards, the drive turns into gravel to take you up the mountain to this quiet hide-away. Four-wheel-drive highly recommended between October and April; front wheel drive the rest of the year is recommended. If you read about poor road conditions in the reviews, we have rectified that with the new concrete drive. Wounded Warriors should ask about a special discount. Discounts are offered to either military (retired, active, Reservists) or teachers – ask for your discount up front to figure pricing AND BEFORE BOOKING WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD; please do not expect more than one discount - either military or educator (both are equal). Also, please do not request discount after paying on line - ask before booking - tell me up front you are military or an educator; thanks. Have a wonderful stay and please leave feedback at VRBO Listing #438245 to help us make “A Buck’s Peak” the best Luray cabin. Please visit us on FB too by searching A BUCKS PEAK. Book today.

Why Carl S. Ey chose Luray

A Buck's Peak resides in the Cabin Capital of Virginia. It is a large log cabin in the middle of nowhere but close enough to enjoy the fun stuff like Luray Caverns, Lake Arrowhead (3 miles away), canoeing and rafting on the Shenandoah River, zip-lining, wine-tasting, hiking (yes, you can hike right outside the cabin up to Skyline Drive), antiquing, all types of biking, great restaurants and nature enjoyment. This cabin will take your breath away with all of the accommodations from a super hot tub to a fully equipped kitchen to a large screen t.v. and incredible game room.

What makes this cabin unique

This is one of a VERY few ADA compliant log cabins in the Virginia's Cabin Capital, Luray, Virginia! Additionally, you can tell people you stayed in 'the holler!' A Buck's Peak is located in what Luray citizens refer to as Jewell Hollow or 'the holler.' We offer either a military discount or an educator discount (not both). Please tell me up front that you are an educator or an active/retired/reservist/former military member. This cabin is quiet and private - all of your distractions are removed; no internet option, cell service is practically non-existent as you are enjoying the middle of nature!

Amazing cabin, amazing views, perfect for adults and kids

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at A Bucks Peak was so wonderful and memorable. We had a group that included adults and children of all ages and everyone had an amazing time. It was a great home away from home to "unplug". Everyone enjoyed the views, the spaciousness of the cabin, the movies and games available. The kids never got bored. We were able to have family meals each night and smores by the fire. We were even able to bring our family pet along and he looooved the convenient dog run. The local property manger and owner were very kind and helpful! I had no problems reaching them throughout the rental process. Our family would like to make this cabin a part of our regular getaways!!! You will not be disappointed!

Incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

A Buck’s Peak is a spectacular cabin with the most incredible view. The open air, cozy fireplace inside and the fire pit outside created the most perfect weekend. The owner provided all the instructions I needed along with recommendations for the weekend. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting to enjoy the open air and wonders of nature. Can’t wait to go back!

Gorgeous, Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 converged on A Buck's Peak for our annual Thanksgiving reunion. This cabin is fantastic! The views are incredible, overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, and we enjoyed them from the deck sitting in the hot tub or in delightful rocking chairs. The living room/kitchen area is a spacious open floor plan so that the people working in the kitchen never felt left out of the conversation or the endless football/Harry Potter marathons. The decor is comfortable and inviting with soft sofas that are perfect to curl up on with a good book or for conversation. The kitchen has plenty of room and is well designed so that several people can work at the various counters at one time (an important aspect for Thanksgiving dinner!) The bedrooms are spacious and relatively quiet, even though we had a house full of family. The shuffleboard table and darts provided great entertainment for various combinations of folks throughout the weekend and are a nice addition to the possibilities of how to spend time together. My sister and her husband brought their dog, who made good use of the run just off the back porch to stretch her legs and take care of business. The National Park is pretty much right next door, so we were able to venture into the park for hikes as well as just to drive and enjoy the magnificent scenery. "A Buck's Peak" is indeed at the top of a steep driveway, part of which is dirt, so we were glad the weather did not challenge us with mud or snow. Everyone made it safely driving up and down again, and the runners and intrepid walkers in our crew got some amazing hill workouts! All in all we had a wonderful time at this great mountain retreat and would return in a heartbeat.

Right in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountain, A Buck's Peak is less than five miles off of the Skyline Drive. Biking, antiquing, wine tasting, zip-lining, Yogi Bear Park, Luray Caverns, whiskey tours, ATVing and the coolest movie theater on the East Coast are just a few of the attractions. Recommend you partake in Wine Tasting at both Gadino Cellars (Washington, VA) and Chester Gap cellars in Rhappahanock. Enjoy the antique shops in Washington, Virginia as well as Luray, Virginia. The Luray Movie Theater is a refurbished mansion that shows first-run movies. Finally, you can simply enjoy the 120 jet, 8-person hot tub on the log cabin's huge deck!
