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.

Brenda K. Ellison purchased this cabin in 2000

CLEAN Perfectly Kept Unbelievably Beautiful Luxurious Relaxing Quiet Getaway PLUS river & mountains!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my parents, their 2 Westies, and a friend here for a week. Our plans revolved largely around either fishing or "down time"...for catching up, playing cards, and doing things together. Mom also had big food plans, my friend had fitness focused goals, and Dad and I shared the joy of finally having a week of our lives without work, so we were super focused on the little things/handy helping physical accomodations/relaxation factors. To be truthful, we are a nitpicky group. We just notice and appreciate all of the "little extra" things others may not notice... and not one of us was disappointed in any form or fashion by this place! The level of attention to detail, cleanliness, thoughtfulness, and just the warmth you can see and feel in this home away from home is the best I've found. The property is perfectly sized and layed out for privacy and quiet, as well as separation/privacy among groups/individuals staying there. Late night folks and/or smokers, we figured out, belong in the room downstairs, where TV/conversations can happen at all hours without disturbing upstairs residents, and the private exit door creates a non-offensive and easy escape outside for a smoker. (Don't smoke right there next to the gas tank, though.) Upstairs, the queen bedroom suited my parents perfectly. Right next to the gorgeous kitchen, private exit to the carpeted and screened in porch, a pristinely clean full bathroom across the hall, 2 closets and a dresser, etc. The other room next door was ideal for either 1 small sized adult or teen (little beds), or for children. The TVs, cable, internet/wifi & phone were all fast & reliable. The private river access, from the banks in the backyard as well as via the private gated boat dock just a few minutes up the road from the house, is priceless. We caught at least 12 fish just hanging out on the banks, & were able to squeeze in 2 last-minute trips down the river in the provided kayaks with provided life vests & paddles thanks to the dock! We'd hoped to take the canoe, but my truck wasn't long enough to haul it to the put-in spot, so the kayaks were the perfect easy option to have! The hot tub building is my new favorite place to be. You truly can watch the river go by & relax, privately & peacefully. Mom is still bragging about the kitchen, my friend RAVED about her yoga spot there & her runs around the neighborhood, and Dad & I relished in the ease & availability of technology & comforts. We'll definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very kindly for your first class review. I apologize for my delay in response as I was truly blown away by your words and deeds. You and your parents were awesome guests and I would love to have you return here or any of the other two Peaceful Properties homes. I can't tell you how much I enjoy offering these homes. Yes, they are a lot of work. We do this because we love the area and we hope others would also once they spend time in this beautiful Page County area. No other area is as green and serene because Rileyville is the land which is closest to both mountain ranges. My husband looked that up. He is a stickler for facts and he is correct. This location offers both views of the ranges. As you traverse the Shenandoah River, the view changes--one curve looking at the Shenandoahs, the next curve looking at the Massanuttens. I didn't realize but our guests can see the mountains on both sides. The amenities are bountiful in this home. If there are any suggestions from our guests, I act on them. However, I have yet to put up the hammock. I am thrilled you and your family had a wonderful time at Peaceful River. Your caption of the review is a marketing piece in and of itself. Guests are the best marketing. Thanks again for being wonderful guests and I am counting on you returning to enjoy this beautiful area again. For another experience, try Brown Bear Retreat. It has a wonderful view of the Massanutten Mountains framed in a huge picture window--another one of my husband's ideas. Thanks again! Green...Serene

Perfect place for peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 night stay. The owners are very nice and attentive. The views of the river and the mountains are spectacular. We like toys and there are 3 kayaks, a canoe and hot tub which kept us entertained. Brenda was full of helpful suggestions from restaurants to places to launch and take out the boats. We hope to return next year.

Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great easter break at your house. It was just perfect for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 teens). Was a perfect spot to be near skyline drive for some hikes and near the river for some quiet time. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing Peaceful River for your family Easter break. I appreciate how you left the home in good order. I am thrilled you had a wonderful time. My main goals are to provide a comfortable, relaxing, clean, and amenity-rich stay. I can't change the scenery outside but there is no need as it a beautiful location less than 100 feet off the river. Thanks for your review and stay at Peaceful River, one of three homes of Peaceful Properties...Green...Serene.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better spring break trip. Brenda and Mike was so accommodating and helpful and made sure we had a great time. We loved floating down the beautiful shendendoah right into our backyard! The house is stunning and very comfortable- everyone slept well! We cannot say enough good things about this house and it's owners!

Peaceful River lives up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our weekend getaway to Peaceful River! The house is beautiful and well equipped and very cozy. We did not want to leave! The area is very private and quiet except for the sounds of nature. We had wanted to get away and relax and that is exactly what this home offered! It has many other possibilities too which we hope to come back later and enjoy, such as kayaking, fishing, and hiking! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! One of the best weekend getaways we have had!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Peaceful River. This was the first of our three acquired properties. The name came to me as I was sitting on the porch listening the ripples of the river and chirps of the birds. I named my business "Peaceful Properties" because that is exactly what I want our guests to experience--peace and the tranquility of refreshing oneself in mind, body, and spirit. Thanks for choosing to stay at Peaceful River. Green...Serene.

Grateful for Respite

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful River offered a slice of heaven for our week's vacation. While a bit too cold to maximize the pleasures afforded by the screened in porch, hot tub, and river toys (Blizzard Stella came up the East Coast), we found great comfort to let go and enjoy the coziness of the gas fireplace and home. The house felt like a home as Brenda and Mike go the extra mile to make us feel welcomed, and stay on it to keep the home and property clean and comfortable. The appliances for kitchen and laundry were top-notch as well. And its location so near Shenandoah and George Washington National parks was great for our [almost] daily hikes. Our only disappointment was when we wanted to book again "real soon," Peaceful River is already established as a great place to rent, and so everyone is :(. Seriously, if you're considering a VRBO get-away, this is it, no matter the season.
