About Albert Yowell
My ancestry settled here 250 years ago and the A-Frame sits across the road catty-whompas from the extended family farm. I fly private jets all over the beautiful USA, so it's always nice to come home to the peaceful view of Old Rag Mountain.
Albert Yowell purchased this Chalet in 2015
Why Albert Yowell chose Etlan
For access to the heart of Shenanadoah park, namely Old Rag, White Oak Falls, Graves Lodge, Virginia farm scenery, and local vineyards, the Etlan A-Frame is central.
What makes this Chalet unique
The unique physiognomy of the Old Rag skyline is best viewed from right here in Etlan and the small knoll of the Etlan A-Frame.
NO SMOKING indoors
NO SMOKING INDOORS! BYOB and food. The Etlan store has very basic items plus made to order sandwiches, burgers, breakfast sandwiches, and pizza on weekends. The nearest chain food market is 13 miles south, or Sperryville market 11 miles north. Housebroken cats & dogs are ok. If you have a BIG dog, or multiple pets we need to talk. No snakes please. Firearms welcome. No shooting on the property, however, there are nearby places where you can. You can show early & leave late so long as it doesn't conflict with other scheduled guests...we will let you know in advance if there are preceding or follow on guests. The county has the place zoned 'single family residence'; however be sure to let us know how many of your 'family' will be coming. We have a couple air mattresses if additional members of your 'family' have sleeping bags. The upstairs sleep sofa is suitable for a couple and you will wake up to a gorgeous view of Old Rag in the morning sun. Or you may elect to use the double twins as a king bed, or keep them separate for 2 singles. We need to know prior to your arrival for proper set up. The upstairs beds are in separate segments of the open area. We have a pack n play, (crib). The nearest & only neighbor is about 60 yards away, so respect accordingly please. The short driveway is fairly steep, so keep your speed up or use 4WD if you have it. Use discretion if there is snow or ice. The phone will make local or toll free calls. You will have to text outside parties through the wifi to have them ring the number here: 540-923-4324. (No cell signal) Please leave the house locked & undamaged; we do the cleaning & above all.....ENJOY!!!

Old Rag A frame
Best rental in the entire area, everything you need and more with spectacular views.
A little slice of heaven
The house was beautifully decorated, clean and had everything one would need to be comfortable away from home. The views were breathtaking and we were so relaxed! Albert and his son met us and made us feel welcomed. The communication was excellent and we enjoyed ourselves hiking in Shenandoah which was easy to get to. Thank you so much for a wonderful mother- daughter hiking memory!
Had a great overall experience at this cozy little cabin. We’re hoping to return one day! The owner was very friendly, flexible with check in/out times and helpful.
Definitely recommend the A-Frame!
Beautiful home with even better Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Exceeded our expectations and will definitely be going back. Newly built Patio with hot tub and fire pit makes this home the perfect stay. You’re in the middle of nowhere but is walking distance to a Country Store that has everything you need Incase you need or want something. Would also recommend DuCard Vineyards which is very close.
Five Star View
Perfect place to get away from it all.
Perfect little vacation in a perfect property.
We arrived and the instructions sent to us were spot on. Everything was ready, the views are outstanding, the patio and hot tub idillic and the location perfect to access Shenandoah. We loved it and will be back! And thank you to make it pet friendly because our dog is like our child. She loved chasing the turkeys and barking at the cows!
