About the property

43 Acres, 77 Windows To Witness The Breathtaking Views, Gunite Pool And Hot Tub

Our home sits on 43 acres and has 77 windows for you to witness the breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley, enjoy the expansive view of Massanutten, the Shenandoah River and the Blue Ridge Mountains! The yard is equipped with a gunite pool and hot tub* plus horses and cows grazing in the pasture. There are four levels of living space - the main floor, 2nd floor, walk out finished basement and a beautiful open staircase that leads to the huge attic that can sleep extra! Our home has 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 bath, Large Kitchen with 48” Viking stove and griddle, Dining area, Large Den w/ Gorgeous Stone Fire Place, Parlor with a Piano & 5 porches! The first floor and basement have 10' ceilings and the 2nd floor has 9' ceilings.

We moved to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley and built this home to raise our children. We designed it so that all of our family and friends could come and visit any time and stay with us.

It's such a peaceful, private place to take in the beautiful scenery and spend time with your family & friends. The spacious living areas give you space to gather all together or find a quiet room to read a book and relax. The outdoors come to life here while walking down the country road behind our home along the Shenandoah River or the country road in front of our home viewing the mountains and pastures. You can relax by the pool and hot tub or sit out on one of our 5 porches/decks. Wherever you sit or look there is an abundance of beauty. We love to watch the moon come over the mountains or the sun set behind them. Every day is a different picture to see - the foliage in the fall, the clouds against the mountains, the stars like you've never seen them before but best of all the laughter and joy when family and friends are gathered!

Anyone who visits or stays can't wait to come back. We have been told it's like a slice of heaven, a retreat, a place you never want to leave.

It is conveniently located to everything! We are 1 mile from Massanutten Resort (water park, golfing, horseback riding, miniature golf, skiing, tubing, snowboarding, ice skating), 10 minutes from James Madison University, 10 minutes from Harrisonburg, 15 minutes from The Shenandoah National Park (great hiking trails) , 40 minutes from Charlottesville (UVA), 25 minutes from Luray caverns & 35 minutes from Stuanton (Black Friar Theater). Along with all those wonderful options there is canoeing, river tubing, winery's, antiquing, Fishing, hunting (depending on the season), biking, etc...

*The hot tub and pool are seasonal. It is opened April thru September and weather permitted we try to extend that period of time.

Very nice property surrounded by amazing scenery. We all left refreshed and renewed! We had three families with young children and all had a GREAT time. Great kitchen and pool...centrally located to tons of things to do. Mary Beth was responsive and took care of all our needs and questions! Highly recommend this property for your family’s next vacation!

Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

Just a beautiful home with 360 views and an amazing pool. The kids loved the open space and seeing horses and cattle everyday as we walk around the property. Highly recommend!

Great Home, Very Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation—16 of us ages 7-74. From the moment we drove up the drive we knew we picked the right place. We were greeted by the property manager who was very helpful. The rooms were spacious. The views were absolutely beautiful. The kids (and adult) favorite was the pool. Much bigger than expected. The views of the mountains and pastures with the horses grazing close by were very peaceful. We loved sitting out on the porch. The pictures do not do this home justice. It was exactly what we all needed and no one wanted to leave. Massanutten Resort is very close with lots of activities. DC was 2 1/2 hrs away we did a day trip there. We did a tour of the Grand Caverns which was close & just enough of an activity for us. Other than maybe some minor updates or fixes it was perfect for us. I think I can speak for my entire family “It was our best vacation!” Thanks again for opening your home!

Loved it! House and property beautiful!

We rented this house for my family and my daughters bridesmaids. It was plenty big and worked out great for us. Would love to go back to just vacation with the family.

Fantastic stay in the Shenandoah Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful home. Four families shared the home and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. The owner was incredibly attentive to all of our requests and gave us an extensive list of nearby amenities, restaurants, historic sites, etc. The location is ideal and the views of the mountains, horses, and Shenandoah River were even better than the pictures. Our only downside? Too cold to use the pool and hot tub--so we have to return (and already looking at dates). Highly recommended!
