Steve & Chris
About Steve & Chris
We've lived on this little mountain for 30 years. Chris is a native Northern Virginian who grew up spending a LOT of time in Shenandoah National Park. We both have backgrounds in various tourist oriented industries and we enjoy showcasing this area for folks.
Steve & Chris purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Steve & Chris chose Linden
Because it's in an idyllic setting and has an awesome view.
What makes this Cabin unique
It's a hybrid area - a very rural little neighborhood surrounded by wilderness - so we share the environment with abundant wildlife.

Our stay was everything we hoped for. The setting is perfect - very private and quiet with a gorgeous view. The cabin has every amenity and then some, and is very comfortable, super clean and well maintained. Our hosts had good recommendations for nearby sites and we enjoyed visiting many of them. We hope to visit again sometime!
Lovely spot to meet siblings coming to area via Dulles
Great layout, decks to convene on, and peaceful setting for morning and evening walks.
Valley Vista Cabin
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Property is as described and for us the somewhat isolated location was ideal after spending 4 days in DC. Road was not bad coming up. Driveway is pretty easy to negotiate. Views were great as was the hot tub. The robes are a nice plus.. We are birders and we enjoyed hearing the Thrushes calling right at the cabin. Would definitely recommend this cabin. BK
Thank you for being our guests and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we get many varieties of birds here which are fun to watch and listen to especially in the morning on the deck.

Our #1 for ease of rental and enjoyment
Our experience staying in the Valley Vista cabin was amazing ! The location and views were just perfect for our trip. The house is fully equipped and instructions for everything we're very clear and helpful. We hope to return soon !
Thank you and your friends for being our guests and for leaving the cabin in great shape. Glad you got to meet Scooter and we look forward to your next visit.
Outstanding weekend (too short!)
We chose Valley Vista cabin because: they accepted dogs, and the house seemed dog-friendly for our senior Yorkie, Porky; it seemed close; it looked private with an outstanding view; other guest reviews indicated the cabin was well-equipped. We travel whenever we can, and also camp at our mountain property outside of Petersburg. We schlep a lot of stuff every time, but it didn’t seem that would be necessary with Valley Vista. After our stay, I can confirm all impressions were correct.
Upon arrival, we walked in to find a complimentary bottle of wine for us, and a fresh bowl of water along with some biscuits for Porky. Such thoughtful touches for my four-legged furbaby. While pausing on the back deck to marvel at the AMAZING view, Porky sipped from another fresh bowl of water provided for him. We settled into the bedroom on the main level, but the basement bedroom is really nice. Grab that for yourself, if you go with your friends! Lol. The bed and sheets were very comfortable. Shower is also terrific, and, yeah, the tub is a jacuzzi. Winning!
The entire cabin is well-kept, and so thoughtfully-appointed. The kitchen has everything you could need. The cabinet above the stove even contains a variety of spices, rubs, etc. The cabinet by the fridge is stocked with hot chocolate, popcorn, and s’mores fixings! While we did not use the hot tub, plush robes and towels are provided. Flip flops, too. And bug spray. These two “house hosts” are awesome. Literally anything you could think of, they already beat you to thinking of it. Oh, and the rack of literature, brochures, maps, etc. in the sitting area makes the Visitor’s Center look shabby.
I truly enjoyed the décor of the cabin. On the dining room wall is a cool topographical relief map of the Shenandoah area. I loved the pictures from the Pawcasso Exhibit at the Humane Society of Warren County (flowers made from the paw prints of sweet doggies). We used the provided binoculars to do a little bird watching, too. Drove Skyline Drive, did some trail walks, but were still able to enjoy Netflix at night on the smart TV. Cooked on the MASSIVE grill both nights, and enjoyed our meals on the deck. A weekend is just not enough time. We will absolutely be back again, and highly recommend the property to anyone. I’m not sure how Chris and Steve make money with this rental because they clearly reinvest into the comfort of their guests. Very thankful for our choice, our hosts and our wonderful weekend.
We really enjoyed hosting these guests. They were amazing because we had just had renters from hell that trashed the place and did damage. We scrambled to get all we could done before their arrival but missed a few things. When they let us know in a positive way and we explained what had happened, they rolled right along with us and actually helped pick up some of what we had missed. Thank you! We are glad you and Porky enjoyed your stay and would welcome you back any time.
Great base of operations for visiting wineries, caverns, historic sites, sightseeing through Shenandoah Valley and Shenandoah National Park.
