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.
Spacious, well-appointed, immaculately clean home surrounded by trees, convenient to park entrances.
This vacation property was a wonderful surprise. Although in farm country, the house is surrounded by trees and set far back from the road. It was immaculately clean, which my group of three mature women appreciated. Every room is over-sized, with nicer-than-rental furnishings. The kitchen is as well equipped as my own, with multiple sets of everything. The amenities in this home are above any we experienced (and we have rented from Stockholm, Sweden to the islands off the NW US coast). Things like facial tissue in every room, more towels than you could ever use, nice sheets and fluffy mattress covers, paper towels in the kitchen, 5 lbs of coffee in the fridge, and a wide variety of teas, all there for use by guests! And a plate of homemade cookies waiting for us upon arrival. The two upstairs bedrooms even have high-end space heater to add comfort to the house heating. Lots of décor detail (wall art, throw pillows and objects de art throughout) gives you the feeling of being in someone’s home. We all agreed that this home should get five-stars. Ellen was prompt in replying—a gracious and welcoming host.
Comfortable and accommodating
Great place for 5 women to escape for a quiet r&r retreat for the weekend. Close enough to activities yet far enough for peace and quiet. Home was clean and had everything we needed other than groceries. We would come back again.
Great home in the woods
The home is very well maintained and super comfortable. Owners are very nice and accommodating. Received a delicious home made pie from them as well. It rained most of the time but the covered front porch allows you to relax outside and enjoy the rain. Home is very clean and the living area is great for lounging, kitchen is well equipped and the dining table is a good size. It is fairly removed from the road but you can still hear some minimal sounds from passing cars when you are outside. Grill works very well and the fire pit area is quite nice as well. It is quite private which I liked. I had a 5 year old and a 1 year old who walks but it was quite child friendly and safe. It is about 15 mins from Luray Caverns and 20 mins from the entrance to Skyline Drive. We got to enjoy both during our stay. Owner lives very close and is ready to assist at a moments notice. Hope to come back again in the future.
Beautiful House ! We will definitely be back !
My friends and I loved the house ! Beautiful, cozy bedrooms, an amazingly well stocked kitchen, and a great backyard, BBQ, fire pit ! This house has it all. Perfect location close to Luray and right in the heart of Shenandoah. Ellen was a great host. The house came fully stocked with everything we'd need and she was sweet enough to bake us a tasty cake ! Thanks again !
Clean and well appointed
Just like home
Our family got together at this house and said "It's just like home". Only, we hail from CA, CT, PA and TN. The location was perfect with plenty of room in the big yard for playing Frisbee and using the fire pit. The large dining table was comfortable for meals and after to play board games. The talking, sharing and laughing felt so good! We would like to Thank our hosts for allowing us to stay in their home.
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.
