Why The Country Place Inc. chose Luray

From the front door at Misty River Retreat, throw a base ball into George Washington National Forest; then turn around and toss a Frisbee with your non-dominant hand into the South Fork of the Shenandoah River!

Then step inside the screened porch and climb into the four-person hot tub after lighting the porch fireplace for romantic ambiance. The outdoor charcoal grill can be firing up for later shish-kebab roasting!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits along the outer elbow of the Shenandoah River so the 2 mile view up and downriver is astonishing.

Glass-walled master bedroom (queen bed) has half bath.

Additional 2 bedroom with full bath/shower. But if you rent the annex also for an additional fee... then you get 2 more beds, 1 more bath and a kitchenette for a total of four bedrooms and a bed in the 2nd livingroom

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi there, we had a great time at the misty river retreat, the house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The view was great and we really lucked out with the weather too. The only thing we did not get a chance to do was go canoeing, I just wish we had more time there. We would love to come back some day and enjoy it again. Heather
