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!
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!
Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back anytime.
Beautiful home in the woods
The house is located right in the woods and stocked with everything one need for a great vacation
Owner was so very friendly and helpful
I will go back again
My family is separated by distance and we loved spending the weekend at this property. It had everything we needed from the kitchen to the outdoors, and was in a gorgeous tucked away location. We'd love to come back!
Beautiful home, so tastefully decorated, the pictures do not do it justice!
The kitchen was so well stocked. I personally appreciated that there was coffee and mini creamers on the first morning because we ended up having to drive 5 hours more than the 9 hours we expected. We couldn't get to the supermarket the night we arrived. But there were basic staples like oatmeal and grits for just such a situation. There were even fresh baked cookies and the makings for s'mores which our 3 children enjoyed so much! Each room was so comfortable and the master suite huge to fit 2 pack and plays and even my daughter on the floor in a little bed we made from blankets.
The park and the caves were fantastic! Each evening we came home to this beautiful and comfortable place!
Thank you for everything!
thoughtfully set up
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!
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!
This property is only a 15 minute drive from Massanutten Resort which offers year round activities. You are a quick drive to antique stores and restaurants. 20 minutes from the Shenandoah National Park and the Skyline Drive. Luray Caverns and the Luray Zoo is only 10 minutes away. If you like water activities the Shenandoah river is only 3 minutes away. There is fun here for everyone.
