Why The Country Place Inc. chose Shenandoah Valley

You can stand at the front door at Misty River Retreat and throw a base ball and hit George Washington National Park; turn around and toss a Frisbee with your non dominant hand and hit The South Fork Shenandoah River! Or you can step inside the screen door and jump in the four person hot tub with roof over and screened in porch while having an exterior fireplace fire on the deck with shishkobobs roasting!

What makes this house unique

The house sits along the outer elbow of the Shenandoah River so the vista up and down the river is very accessible without having to walk down to the river bank and twisting your neck to see up and down the river. Misty house has 3 bedrooms. 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
