About Brenda K. Ellison

Hello, my name is Brenda and my husband’s name is Mike. Welcome to Peaceful Properties--Your choice for a green and serene stay. My husband and I are retired Army officers serving for 24 and 30 years respectively. We both love this area and plan to make it our permanent home in the near future. There is no other place in the area that has the benefits of viewing both mountain ranges; the Massanutten on the west and the Shenandoah on the east with the South Fork of the beautiful and peaceful Shenandoah River running between these green mountains. An awesome sight when you see eagles or osprey flying high, deer and turkeys running through the woods, and an occasional bear to remind you that you are in Page County and the Luray area. We hope you enjoy your stay at Peaceful Properties. It is a magnificently beautiful area especially on a clear night with the stars you cannot see nearer the cities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amanda, thank you for keeping this home so clean and tidy. I know how much work it takes to maintain a home, especially rental property. Your attention to detail and quality of maintenance are greatly appreciated. I hope that we weren't too much of a mess to clean-up after. 😄 We all tried to treat the homes as we do (if not better) than our own homes. Brenda definitely hit the jackpot when she found you. Thank you again.

Owner's Response: Awesome! So glad that the description met your expectation. It is very popular in the Summer but received less bookings this Winter. Future guests reading the reviews and description of the location, don't turn away from a great location just because it's in a neighborhood. The home is located on three lots, which is about 2 acres. There are no permanent residents on either side or across the road. Less than 1/2 of the homes have permanent dwellers. Thanks for staying and hope you can return. Green...Serene.

Wonderful property on the river

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. It was a wonderful experience. Brenda gave us detailed directions and all the information we needed to find the property and know how to operate everything in the house. We loved the property's seclusion and location right on the river. The hot tub was just a few steps away from the house and we turned on the disco color lights inside the hot tub at night. There is a state park near by, the Shenandoah River State Park has a lot of hiking trails. We spent the day on a five mile hike there. It was a perfect getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to provide a review of your stay. I appreciate the comments on the hot tub. We have just installed a paved walkway from the house to the hot tub. Some guests have commented on not knowing where the hot tub was or having to walk on the grass. I think the walkway will provide an obvious path and a nice addition to the yard. Thanks for staying at Peaceful River, one of three Green...Serene homes.
