About the property

4 Bedroom Modern House On The Shenandoah River

Bring your extended family (or two families!) to enjoy a private modern repose on the Shenandoah river.

Located only 75 miles from downtown dc, this spacious, airy house offers four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, including two full en suite master bedrooms/baths on the first floor, a two-story soaring living room, an upstairs with a master bedroom and bunk room (twin over full) with shared bath, and a third-floor 'crows nest' for kids to play or adults to relax and watch the moon rise over the river.

There is a large, screened in porch for relaxing or having meals, and an additional porch (and grill) that overlooks the sweeping lawn as it descends to the river.

With 250 feet of private frontage on the gorgeous south fork of the Shenandoah river, bring your own or use the house-provided canoe and kayaks as often as you'd like. Fish to your heart's content right off the property.

The entrance to the Shenandoah national park/skyline drive and the George Washington national forest are both within 15 minutes. Hiking and biking opportunities abound. Vineyard tours are a close drive. Luray caverns is just over 1/2 hour.

An ideal and ideally-situated water retreat - great for one, or multiple, families!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We went with four teenagers and they all loved the kayaks and canoe. The property is right on the river, so you don't even have to leave the house. Not far from Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns.

Beautiful place to stay with extended family right on the river.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here swimming/wading in the river every day, kayaking, hiking in the national park, horseback riding, antiquing. We took day trips to Luray Caverns which also has an amazing antique car exhibit, and another day trip to The Frontier Culture Museum.

The house was well equipped in the kitchen and laundry. The back porch is a great place to sit and talk in the mornings over coffee, and in the evenings to watch the deer and fireflies. There are also little wild rabbits that hop around the yard in mornings and evenings.

The overall feeling is of spaciousness, relaxation, and peace. A great getaway.

The property owner is very prompt at answering messages, and communicates well. We would come again.

Amazing Riverfront Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our two families absolutely LOVED this home for our weekend retreat. Three adults and 2 teenage girls were riverside most of the weekend and it couldn't have been more picture perfect. Shallow warm clear river and acres of open grassland to relax. Dock was perfect for watching canoes slowly meander by us. The house itself is clean, comfortable with plenty of space and nice views. Screened in porch perfect when buggy. The fire pit was wonderful on Saturday evening. We'll be returning -many thanks to the owners.

What an amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

If I could buy a place on a River, I would want it to be this exact spot. The swimming hole on the island was beautiful, my 6 year old was in her glory. You can see the bottom of the river all the way across. The fishing was tremendous. The shore area was loaded with trees and shady each day. The grass area was spacious and well maintained. The screened in porch was wonderful. And the house was clean and well stocked.

To top it off the property manager was a wonderful to deal with.

The 4 couples and the children had a wonderful time.

Wonderful River home

  • 5 of 5

This rental property was clean and modern. We enjoyed lazy days on the river and evenings by the fire pit. The kids spent many hours in the (provided) kayaks each day. We were two families of four and the house was comfortable. The screen porch, deck and large yard were great. Our only complaint about this home is that the kitchen is very small. We found that inconvenient at times since we chose to cook/grill each night. The owner was very prompt and easy to work with.

Located 75 miles from downtown dc, and ~5 miles south of front royal, enjoy five acres of privacy on the Shenandoah river! Slip a (house provided) canoe or kayak in the river and you are off! Hiking in the Shenandoah National Park and George Washington national forest are 20 minutes away. Biking (road and mountain) options abound! Luray caverns are just over 1/2 hour. Multiple vineyards offer easy tours. But be sure to stick around and enjoy the lawn, the river, the deck and the grill. You won't find a closer river retreat!
