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 Massanutten

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!

Beautiful home, extremely well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple (all retirees) stayed here for 5 nights. Our daughter, son-in-law, and 9y/o granddaughter rented nearby and spent many hours with us at ""our" house. You won't be disappointed if you stay here! This comfortable, cozy, beautifully decorated home is beyond any home we've rented in the past in accommodations. More than adequate number of towels; soft, 100% cotton bedding and very comfortable beds plenty of quality cookware and cutlery, etc (if meal prep is in your plan); a very nice, clean grill; even extras such as a waffle maker, a selection of seasonings, bottles of water, and more. This home is very clean and well-maintained. The game room in the lower level is beyond your imagination! The 2 decks are great for lazily enjoying the lovely outdoor setting. The very nice owner, Michael, welcomed us, gave us a full tour of the property, and was available for any needs.(No problems.) We would definitely recommend this home for your vacation.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we travel back to the area, we will stay at this house! It is the best VRBO/HomeAway property we’ve used. The owner is extremely accommodating and helpful and he has the house stocked from top to bottom with anything you’d ever need. Highly recommend staying here!

Wholesome Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation with 4 adults and 3 kids (4 yrs, 21 mos & 19 mos) couldn't have gone more smoothly and we owe a lot of it to our comfortable and accommodating stay at this property. Almost every meal we had over our 5 day stay was made in the kitchen and our conversations flowed easily from the kitchen to the living room where this kids would play together. The owner truly takes pride in this property and it shows in the little details that are everywhere for instance the back up propane take, double waffle maker, seasonings for cooking, baggies and Tupperware for leftovers, slow cooker and just when we thought this rental didn't have something we needed we would find it in another cabinet. It was literally our home away from home.

There was plenty in the area to do for the kids. We visited A Dream Come True Park and Back Home of the Farm in Harrisonburg. The kids also enjoyed the Maze at Luray Caverns. The evenings were spent playing with the children and cooking. After they went down for the night, the adults enjoyed relaxing in the downstairs watching movies and playing games together.
