We really enjoyed staying in this cabin. We go to Shenandoah every year and rent a different property. One thing I appreciated was the width of the stairs. Most places we stay have super narrow stairs and it is so easy to miss your footing. The beds are very comfortable, also the furniture. The shower is a little tricky trying to keep the shower curtains closed so as not to get the floor wet. The kitchen is small, but plenty of room to fix up meals. I would suggest a saucepan and fry pan that is not cast iron - I make a lot of soup and I did not have the right type of pan to make soup on those chilly days. Other than that everything we needed. Nice front porch with lots of seating. The property is beautiful, especially in the Fall with all the color, and the view of the mountain out the front window. Janis left us a beautiful welcome basket with muffins, cookies and fruit and a lovely welcome note. I also loved having the upstairs and downstairs thermostats operating individually. I like the living area warm, but the bedroom ice cold - so I could have the downstairs warm, but go up to sleep in the cold with lots of quilts to keep warm. There was plenty of bottled water, which was great for us because we are major water drinkers. It was nice to have the choice between the coffee maker and the Keurig - and there were pods ready for our use. It was so nice to have the little firestarter logs, but we had a difficult time keeping a fire lit. I think it was because the rain had caused the logs to become damp. Everything was clean and orderly, and items we needed easily at hand. We are in the middle of trying to sell our home, and just bought a new home and furnished it - and in between all that, my husband's mother passed away. So, it was a respite from all the craziness, and a lovely way to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We totally enjoyed our stay.
My daughter was competing with her horse at the Virginia Horse Center, it is a late fall event and a busy time around Lexington. I found this rental to be a perfect spot, fairly close by (20min) and so comfortable and quiet for us to sleep well and recharge after long days. The views are amazing!! Thank you so much for a great experience.
