Overview

About the property

Knotty Pine Interior, Private River Access With Floating Dock & Mountain Views

The 'Eagles Nest River Cabin' towers over a beautiful stretch of the Shenandoah River where the water meanders and swirls over a long stretch of underwater ledges and rocks. The 75' span of private river frontage offers steps and a floating dock for easy access to the river for swimming, wading, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, or just lounging in a chair. The fishing is the best around as the river offers a healthy population of small and large mouth bass. Waterfowl and other birds are abundant (over 50 species documented) and bald eagles are occasionally spotted. There is a public landing and parking at the bridge just up river providing for float trip opportunities down to the property. 2 canoes included at nominal fee for entire visit so that you can either canoe the Shenandoah River or just stretch back in a tube and float your day away.

Sleeping 8 to 10, this newly built cabin is beautiful inside and out representing the quintessential vacation cabin with white knotty pine interior, vaulted ceiling, 2 bedrooms, 2 lofts, a fully equipped kitchen and a huge front porch that overlooks the entire stretch of river. At the base of the steps of the cabin is a charcoal grill, table and chairs for easy outdoor grilling and dining. The spacious side and front yards offer plenty of room for group games such as volleyball, croquet, corn hole and horse shoes. The back of cabin is in view of the historic Norfolk Southern railroad. The freight trains rumble by the cabin without whistle approximately 3 to 5 times per day.

Centrally located just 15 miles from Massanutten Ski & Indoor/Outdoor Water Park Resort and historic Luray featuring Luray Caverns the most popular cave in Eastern America and an internationally acclaimed destination. The Shenandoah National Park is also internationally acclaimed featuring breathtaking views from the Skyline Drive (Swift Run Gap access point only 17 miles) and various distance trail hikes to waterfalls and other natural attractions.

We hope that you will decide to come visit and firsthand experience all that the Shenandoah Valley Region has to offer and while lodging with us at the Eagles Nest River Cabin. Fun is Waiting!

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great relaxing time. Everything we needed was right there. Used canoe and played in river all day! Naps in the hammock and fire pit river front was a plus. Thanks for the firewood for the 1st night. That was a nice surprise.

Wonderful family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a five night stay here and really enjoyed it. Our family of five (with three teen / adult kids) loved the area. We picked the rainiest week of the summer, but we still enjoyed every day of it! The cabin is gorgeous with lots of space for sleeping, everyone had their own room / loft. It was clean and had all the amenities needed. The river is close by, and even though there is a road between the house and the river, there was not much traffic and did not bother us. We used the canoes on site to go fishing and got lots of bass and some pan fish. Saw some large catfish, but they alluded us! Floating on the river was wonderful – but we only managed to do it once. The area provides access to Luray caverns and Skyline Drive (we saw several black bears on Skyline drive). Lots to do, but my favorite time was sitting on the front porch with my morning coffee listening to the rain and listening to the birds. Just like those tranquility recordings you can purchase! We would highly recommend this cabin.

Wonderful spot by the river

  • 5 of 5

We rented Eagle's Nest as one of three cabins on a family reunion, and it was a great choice. Next to the cabin, there is lots of flat lawn space for playing horseshoes (provided) or throwing a frisbee; under the cabin there is a very nice area with tables and comfortable chairs that's great for lunch or board games; and across the road there is another river-side lawn with a hammock, fire pit, and water access. The rental comes with access to two canoes, a couple of bikes, and half a dozen tubes for floating down the river, which we made plenty of use of. The cabin itself is pretty cozy (one bathroom and you can't quite stand up in the lofts), but nicely arranged; it recently got internet access, and the owner is still working out some kinks in getting it to work well. All in all, we had a great time at Eagle's Nest, and some extended-family members were even talking of renting it again for their own vacations.
