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!

Great getaway cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was so easy to work with and the cabin was exactly as described and very clean. We had 2 perfect days of weather on a retreat away from DC. Just a short walk to the water, where we enjoyed canoeing and swimming. Very close to many great activities and attractions. We can't wait to go back!

Very nice cabin with the beautiful Shenandoah river right there.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I took our 7 year old son and dog here and everyone had a great time. We did a few hikes in the park (40 minutes) and went swimming in the river. We took a trip to Harrisonburg (40 minutes) and grabbed dinner. It was a great getaway!

Outstanding Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, new, and had everything we needed. We canoed, fished, cooked on the charcoal grill, made s'mores at the firepit, read in the hammock, watched the solar eclipse (was ~85% there) and relaxed. Our dogs loved it too. Several reviews have mentioned the proximity of the railroad tracks and road. Traffic was minimal during our stay and we love trains, so neither was much of a problem for us.

A lovely trip to Shenandoah

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children). Steps away from the river. Large yard for lawn games, and a fire pit next to the house. A short drive to Luray Caverns, and an easy, pretty drive to great hiking in Shenandoah NP.

Everything was exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We have 5 kids 14yo down to 8yo, both boys and girls. Before we even got there, the kids were excited about sleeping in the lofts! We didn't miss not having a tv AT ALL and we left electronics off during our stay. The water was perfect for canoeing (even our Beagle went swimming!), swimming, a mud fight, and fishing. The kids ran around outside all day and into the night. Being from FL, we really appreciated the cooler weather (even though it was early August) and the lack of mosquitoes. Our kids have asked when we can go back again and for a longer period of time.

Owner's Response: Thank you John and glad your family had a great time and you were able to enjoy the Shenandoah Valley and River. I especially like the mud fight. Hope to have you back again.
