About Michael Handley

We fell in love with Massanutten at first sight. It's a beautiful place with lots to see and do. We were fortunate to purchase our vacation home in 2013, spending several months renovating our home, yet retaining its rustic mountain charm. Our family loves staying here, and we wanted to share with others this mountain home.

Michael Handley purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Michael Handley chose Virginia

We love our vacation home. It is in a quiet neighborhood and centrally located. Its only a short 5 minute drive to either the ski slopes or the waterpark. It's not uncommon to see many types of wildlife while relaxing on the decks.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy level parking and well lit driveway and walkway. Also there is not a lot of steps that our older guests appreciate. Open concept floor plan and located in the middle of the mountain which makes it close to everything!

Stay once and the whole family will want to visit again!!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families with 2 sets of parents and 5 children (ages 2 thru 9) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fun-filled, every-detail-thought-of "Spanky's Mountain Clubhouse." One child asked if we can please give it "6 stars!" out of 5, and another insisted, "10 stars!"

Mike has thoughtfully created a welcoming retreat. We appreciated the well-stocked and equipped kitchen with high quality appliances, cookware, and dishware all in excellent condition. Also all the basics needed to cook including oil, condiments, spices. A huge help to have paper goods, soaps/detergents, shampoo, etc. No need to run out to the store for random needed items (I think this is the first vacation rental I haven't had to do that!). Plenty of space for all to relax, cook, eat, play, and sleep. Enjoyed coffee on the upper deck in the AM, dozing on the lower deck porch swing in the evening, watching deer and hummingbirds in the woods and feeder.

House is perfectly situated within Massanutten Resort. We enjoyed the indoor portion of the waterpark during the day before check-in, and the next day did pony rides, petting farm, lunch at Campfire Grill (recently opened, good food, nice restaurant - best by far of our limited experience eating out in Resort, highly recommend), then go karts and bungy dome. After check out on Day 3, we returned to the waterpark enjoying both indoor and outdoor areas before heading home.

In between all our activities around the Resort, the kids loved playing the arcade games and foosball in the basement and the littlest ones liked playing with the other toys provided. The adults were refreshingly able to have lots of time for conversation!

Gas grill, bottled water, and sodas were excellent for our summer stay. Family loved waffles both mornings using the double waffle maker. Everything in the house is clearly labelled and even the instruction manual for the waffle maker is easily accessible. Two sets of house keys and a pool pass for the Stonewall Recreation Center pool provided.

Loved the extra special touch of a birthday flag outside the house and birthday hat for the birthday girl!

Everyone is asking when we will get to visit again!

This Wonderful House Saved Our Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this house and the Owners, Mike and Staci. Our 2 boys ended up sick with a nasty virus for the majority of our trip. So instead of packing it up and heading home, we stayed and made the best of it because of how amazing this house was. It was so roomy yet cozy that we felt the kids could get the rest they needed to recover while still having fun things to do (like playing the arcade games in the basement). The decks were so nice to sit and have coffee on in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening while watching the deer walk right on by like we weren't even there. We only made a couple trips to the store because the house was stocked with everything you could possibly need from waters in the fridge, waffle and pancake mix for breakfast, k-cups, laundry detergent and so much more. Mike knew our kids were sick and dropped by mid week with a hand written note from him and his wife along with a gift card to use at the resort which was such a nice, personal touch. We feel so lucky to have found this place and are already talking about coming back next year. Oh, a side note, our refundable deposit was returned to us just 1 day after we got home. Talk about service! Thanks again Mike and hopefully we will be seeing you same time next year!

Lol you have gone above and beyond for your visitors, but I like to think of you as our FRIEND🙂 Thank you so much for everything Mike my kids and my family LOVED Spankys...

Every detail covered!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic get away in Massanutten--and a big fun factor was this house. With arcade games, two beautiful decks, many amenities, and spotless & cozy rooms, it made the perfect base for our stay. Mike was accommodating and helpful, and gets how families travel. Thank you to you and your wife, Mike!

Our family cannot recommend it enough! Comfortable, relaxing and fun, something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Easily the best house we've ever rented anywhere. Mike and Staci think of everything for you - a well stocked fridge and pantry, EXTREMELY comfy beds and soft linens, pool towels, stocked laundry room, high quality pots, pans and kitchenware, and a bottom floor full of awesome arcade games! Our family cannot recommend it enough. After day trips to the caverns, Harrisonburg and other surrounding areas, the house was always such a comforting place to return to each night. With 2 old school arcade game systems loaded with lots of oldies but goodies (these are our family's favorites), a paintball game, a race car game, a touch screen system loaded with family friendly bar favorites, and foosball, there's something for everyone. Our family enjoyed more than a few nights of arcade game competitions in the house. With an upper deck outfitted with a nice grill and comfortable furniture and with the lower deck and porch swing, there are a great ways to spend some time at the house looking out at the beautiful area and watching the animals. Such a fun and comfortable place to spend a vacation.
