Renovated Farm House On The Shenandoah River. Sleeps 8
We are located on 16 private acres in Elkton, Va. We have lovingly restored and furnished a farm house originally built in 1905. It is nestled in between the Blue Ridge mountains and the Shenandoah river. Sleeps up to eight comfortably. There are 3 bedrooms, a family room with a reclining couch, Kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, and a utility room with washer and dryer. Enjoy grilling on the back deck after you and yours spend a day on the river fishing, tubing, canoeing, swimming or just relaxing. You can follow the path down to the Shenandoah River for fishing, swimming, and tubing! Your private riverfront hangout spot is over 800 feet long! We have two fire pits (one by the river and one beside the back deck) for a night of S'mores. You can even pitch a tent and sleep along the river!
We are conveniently located just 10 minutes from Massanutten and 20 minutes from JMU ! The Shenandoah National Forest is close by as well. Our location is perfect for enjoying numerous outdoor activities, shopping, dining, or cruising around to check out VA wineries.

About Chrisi Duman
This home renovation has been a joint effort for two brothers and their wives who have been in Virginia their entire lives. We had been shopping for a property like this for about six years altogether and finally found what we think is the perfect getaway spot so that we could explore the joys of sharing riverfront property in the mountains with our children and create memories that will last a lifetime. We are avid outdoorsmen and enjoy every minute we have in our mountain retreat. Every time we spend time here we don't want to leave, our kids just love it! We are not real estate moguls, just two families that love the mountains and plan to keep this property and pass it down to our children. We will continue to make improvements to the property as we go so that those of you that choose to stay here more than once will see something new each time you visit!
Chrisi Duman purchased this Farmhouse in 2012
Why Chrisi Duman chose Elkton
There are few opportunities to enjoy the river and rent a home all in one! You can launch a canoe right behind the house and float down to the public ramp conveniently located about a mile down the river. If you are feeling a bit more ambitious there are lengthier float trips that can be planned as well. The views are breathtaking and the fun never ends. From the kitchen window all you see is a beautiful cattle field with an unobstructed view of the mountains in the background. Get up in the morning and enjoy your coffee by the river or from the front porch while gazing upon the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains! We know that our home is the perfect place to have your next getaway. This is a place where you can kick back and truly relax in total privacy.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The beautiful Shenandoah river gives renters benefits not found on most properties! For us the two main benefits to having this property are 16 acres of privacy and 800 feet of river access with space to be able to camp and have a good time. There really are no neighbors so crank your tunes down by the river and have fun. Bring your fishing pole and hiking shoes and enjoy the outdoor life right in your own backyard!

Perfect for a Family Vacation
We rented this perfect farm house with another family. In total we had 4 adults and 4 kids (6.5, 6, 4, 2.5 years). We had great weather and enjoyed playing football and soccer in the field, swinging on the swing and exploring the river. The pac-man machine was a great surprised and was loved by the kids and adults :-) The owners were great to work with and very quick to respond. Chrisi gave us a great recommendation to head to the lavender farm. Parents and kids really enjoyed our time there. We are so happy we chose this over a place in Massanutten Resort.
Lovely relaxed family vacation
This house was great for our family—it was charmingly decorated yet I didn’t have to worry the kids were going to ruin things. It had everything we needed and the setting is gorgeous.
Great house by the river!
Perfect house for a mountain getaway. Clean, nicely furnished with all the amenities one should need. Owner was easy to contact. Outside property was awesome. Close to many fun things to do. We will be going back!
Well equipped, beautiful home super close to Massanutten!
We had a great time at Rocky Bar! Owners are great and respond really quickly to questions. We had an issue with the WiFi and they took care of it right away! House has everything you need and very comfortable beds! Next time we’re in the area we’ll definitely book again!!
Everything we needed!
We had a wonderful trip to the Rocky Bar Retreat. We caught fish is the quiet river every morning and evening. In between, we were able to explore the many sights a short drive away. The house had everything we needed and more. My only suggestion would be to have some sort of notification that it is not recommended to eat the fish from the river. We found out after taking a float trip down the river from a coffee shop owner that we shouldn't eat the fish. This was good, because we were planning a fish fry that evening. I would recommend these accommodations to anyone who enjoys solitude in the outdoors. Thanks again!
