Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh wow, we had a fantastic time. It was a trip for the women in our family. We walked down by the river, we cooked meals together. We played games, we had a talent contest. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to bond. kimmie

Great Shenandoah River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week on a family vacation at the Captains Lodge on The Rapids. The house was spacious and welcoming. Both Ben and Gail were available and very helpful and were more than willing to give advise and local knowledge about the river, hiking ect... We spent a lot of time at the waterfront. The property is very private and well attended to. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend a stay to family and friends.

Great location, beautiful views, unforgettable memories!

  • 5 of 5

We've been guests at the Captain's lodge since the mid-1990's! We have an annual tradition of Tubing on the Shenandoah with a few of our favorite friends. The Captain's Lodge is the perfect get away to escape for the weekend and enjoy some relaxation, downtime and good times. We look forward to the trip each year and can't to come back!
