We designed Sunridge Retreat to accommodate large groups like scouts, corporate retreats or church groups. Sunridge Retreat is ideally located on a mountain ridge looking east with the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park directly before you. The upper floor has a living room with 50 inch LCD TV, DirecTV and Blu-Ray Disc Player, spacious kitchen with breakfast nook and table with seating for 6, dining room with seating for 6, game room, sun room with seating for 8, half bath, laundry/mud room, two decks with a hot tub on the larger deck. The master suite is on the upper level and has a king bed, twin-over-twin bunk beds, LCD TV and a huge private bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The lower floor has two bunk rooms each with three full-over-full bunks, two full bathrooms, another bedroom with a queen bed and twin-over-twin bunk beds, kitchenette/laundry room and two covered patios. Each bunk room has a private exterior entrance. The spacious yard has a swing set/play fort, fire pit with lots of benches and an amazing view of the Blue Ridge. Sunridge Retreat is a big house with over 4,500 square feet. If you have several families that want to get together or a large group, Sunridge Retreat is for you. The two bedrooms and two bunk rooms can each accommodate a family.
Great property for the money. Easy to find with GPS and not too far away, but still feels real secluded and remote (in a good way) once you're there. All necessary furnishings and supplies were readily available. We took our church youth group for a short retreat and had a wonderful time. Great layout with lots of beds available. More than adequate space for groups of 18+.
There were a few entertainment amenities advertised with the house that were either broken down or malfunctioning a bit at the time of our visit. Needs to be fixed, but didn't take much away from the overall experience. IMPORTANT: Despite info in the FAQ section (which I guess applied only to the other properties managed by same group), this property does NOT have a propane grill. You will need to bring your own charcoal if you want to grill out.
All in all, a great experience. A property I will probably rent again and would definitely recommend to others.
Great location, Isolated. Large living space. Lot of amenities. Kids friendly, game room. Place was clean and basically had everything for a holiday getaway. Home away from home.
Only one thing: hot tub was not clean. Hence, we were not able to use it.
Stayed with a large group of friends to hike the Old Rag Trail on a windy but gorgeous fall day. The location was absolutely breathtaking in daylight but a bit of an adventure for us to find in the dark. The directions from the owner were spot on and essential.
There was plenty of space for people to lounge around and have quiet conversations as well as large communal areas so that we can hang out together. The fire pit was great and being able to see the stars without much background lighting was wonderful. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped. Please be advised that there is literally no cell reception from most cell phone providers. The wireless was a bit overwhelmed by the number of people connected but otherwise okay. Also, there was a relatively loud noise coming from the backyard at short intervals, but we eventually got used to it.
Paul and Emily were very responsive to any questions we had. They were also very accommodating when our numbers kept changing. Also, there was a glitch in the payment system, but they caught it and promptly worked to get it resolved.
Overall, a great experience with the owners, and a relaxing stay for a short weekend getaway from the city.
My large group of friends (25!) and I really enjoy this house and all of the fun it comes with. The game room, number of comfortable beds, the hot tub and fire pit. The view is phenomenal! My only 2 qualms are: 1) The kitchen is not really conducive to the large group that the house advertises to accommodate. The stove doesn't work very well and counter space is limited. 2) The game room is great but it seems so dirty! I know that it gets cleaned but it's kind of settled into the room I believe. It could use some new furniture and a new floor.
Other than that, I definitely see us coming back next year!
I almost don't want to share how great it was because it was amazing and I want this 'secret' for myself, but I will anyways. This place was clean and frigid upon arrival. There were more than ample beds with incredibly soft blankets. Everything was as advertised with every amenity we could have needed. Great views and very secluded mountain stay.
There were concerns from another guest over the bugs, but we didn't have an issue. There were bugs outside, and a few made their way in the house, but it is a house in the mountains, soooooooo I am not sure what the other people who complained were expected. The house was very clean and once inside you wouldn't know there were bugs lurking outside. In short, don't worry about the bad reviews, this place was phenomenal and you won't be disappointed!
We had such a fantastic time at Sunridge! The location was perfect; the home was just right for our four families. The teenagers had lots of fun exploring the woods. The younger kids loved the playset & tire swing. Toddlers had a blast just following the other kids around :) Us "big kids" were able to sit & relax, fix huge meals, and spend time just catching up without worrying about the safety & security of the kids. We all stayed up much later than usual, and slept in, too! The family bedrooms enabled us all to have some private space, which was really nice :) The home is a true gem in the hills of the Shenandoah Valley!
This is the perfect home for families with children. We had kids from 2-16 and they all had a ball!! Plenty of activities for kids to do, a beautiful house, but not so ornately decorated that you had to worry about breakage or damage. The house is huge and has outdoor access to every bedroom. Quiet and isolated. WIFI is available but not strong and cell services was spotty, which for us was perfect. Well stocked kitchen.
