About Ellen Mayes

My husband and I visit this area often and find this place to be relaxing. The people in this area are extremely nice and always wave hello.

Ellen Mayes purchased this house in 2013

Why Ellen Mayes chose Shenandoah

We chose to purchase this home because it is attached to family land. This rental property gets its name from this very transaction. We are the third couple in our family to own this lovely property.

What makes this house unique

This property is surrounded by the Blue Ridge and the Massanutten Mountains. The views in this area are amazing and the property itself is peaceful and relaxing. I love visiting Luray, Va., just 10 minutes up the road to walk main street and enjoy all of the antique shops.

Great house... great, central location... great price too!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend here with my husband, 3 kids and sister's family of 4 as well. We had a great time and couldn't be happier with our stay. The house is in a central location, located off a main road, yet still very secluded. Front porch and back deck were great for just hanging out and the yard was perfect for the kids to run off some energy. All the little details have been covered in this rental including some delicious home-made cookies that greeted our arrival (and didn't last very long at all). House was clean and well maintained, beds were comfortable, directions were perfect and the "Things To Do" binder was a great asset. Owners were responsive and friendly, I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone. Thanks so much!

thoughtfully set up

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful from start to finish. This was our first time trying VRBO and I will definitely be a repeat customer. This house felt like a home. It was nicely furnished and we couldn't stop commenting on the softness and freshness of the sheets. The kitchen was stocked with every pot, pan and utensils you might need. Our ski plans got rained out but we were happy staying in and working puzzles left by the host, watching movies and enjoying family time. I especially loved sitting on that front porch with my coffee! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone- it's a gem!

The house with everything, and then some!

  • 5 of 5

My husband + kids (6, 4, 1.5yrs) and I stayed for the long Presidents Day weekend and couldn't have been happier with the house and location. Having stayed at many rentals, this one truly had everything....pots/pans, ziplock bags, toys for little one, spices, coffee filters, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels....etc, etc, etc. I'm so used to bringing the kitchen sink with me when renting houses, much of the stuff I brought never got unpacked!

The woods behind the house were perfect for exploring and Ellen confirmed my adventurous small people wouldn't be distrurbing neighbors in the 70+ acres directly behind the house!! The firepit was a huge place for my husband to get his Eagle Scout "fix". I could easily see how a group without kids could totally enjoy the front porch (we just don't sit long enough to enjoy any seating!)

The location was perfect for access to Shenandoah Nat'l Park - we did an easy family hike near Big Meadows. Lunch at Uncle Bucks in Luray was awesome. My big kids went bananas for the water park at Massanutten Resort one morning and our weekend was capped by a tour of Luray Caverns.

It was an easy/pretty drive from DC - took less than 2hrs from downtown to the front door.'

Book this house - you won't regret it!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was one of perfection. The owner had prepared the house with every little thing we could possibly need for our stay and things we didn't even think of for ourselves. It is a lovely home situation in a remote location but close to many wonderful activities for my kids and the adults. I can't wait to come back!

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed with some homemade cookies. Very well maintained the place. Not too far from stores and also secluded enough for some privacy and camping feeling. I and my friends rented for three nights for 8 people but half of them canceled last minute; I called the owner and she was very kind enough to work with. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. Will definitely stay again in future.

Nice House

  • 3 of 5

Nice house---quite private. Well stocked. Lovely towels and linens. Also supplies toilet paper and paper towels. A few negatives are the upstairs shower is terrible---so we had 4 ladies and 1 shower. There were a large amount of stinkbugs in the house-----which was annoying. We removed over 30 from 1 bedroom. We loved the front porch----especially the 4 rockers.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and stay at our cabin. We are disappointed that your stay was not 5 star worthy. I really wish you would have reached out to me about these issues while you were staying at the cabin. We work very hard to ensure that our guests are taken care of and we would have rectified this immediately.
