  • Connecting the Dots

    "Today we traveled to Etlan, Virginia where we spent the weekend at Sun Dancer. The property where Spirit Dancer, Sun Dancer and Star Dancer Lodges are located borders on the Shenandoah National Park. This weekend we had no cell phone or Internet connections. These days, we are all used to instant connection via mobile phone or computer. It is technology that makes this possible but when technology is unavailable, we are forced to connect in ways that rely only on face-to-face time where spaces are filled with hugs, discussions and actually doing things together. At night I went outside, listened to the silence above, and saw more stars than I could count. Looking up, I felt a connection to these distant bright balls of gas that inspired people long ago to create pictures and stories by connecting the dots in the sky. Other humans far away also look up at these distant points of light and, like me, are awed. In a way, during our lifetime, we are all our own stars secured to the earth by gravity and given the task of connecting the dots, the spaces among ourselves. My father once asked my husband about his philosophy of afterlife. My husband told him he believes we are made of stardust and that when we die, we become part of the universe. "The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” ~ Carol Sagan What a gift we had this past weekend--millions of points of light."

  • Fantastic Family Weekend!

    "Our stay at Cardinal Springs could not have been better! My wife and I, and our 4 kids (ages 12, 10, 9 and 5), thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Andrea and Steve (and Molly!) were the perfect hosts. So beautiful, peaceful and fun. The kids absolutely loved swimming in the pond and seeing all the animals. We all can't wait to go back! Highly, highly recommend Cardinal Springs!"

  • Beautiful home in the perfect location!

    "Gorgeous home in perfect proximity to hiking the Little Devil's Stairs, far enough from civilization to be remote without feeling cut off. The hosts were very accommodating (and pet friendly), leaving us a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge and allowing a late check in. The owners were unable to meet us for check in, but their daughter made sure we were settled."

  • Very nice, clean farmhouse. Well stocked.

    "Gary's farmhouse is a class act. It is very clean, nicely appointed and he has gone the extra mile to make you settle right in. Nice towels, comfy beds, even some coffee! The hot tub is a GREAT touch -- my 10 year old daughter and I loved it. The house is well located (though definitely "in the country") with about 15 minutes to Luray Caverns (must see) and an hour to Culpeper over the mountains, which is a must-see little town with shops and restaurants galore (much nicer than Lurary IMO). Great spot and a great value."
