  • Zen

    "I'm a paranoid/hyper big-city girl. I'm afraid I don't do nature very well. But at the same time, I desperately needed some peace and solitude. I certainly found it at River House. A beautiful location, and a very well maintained property. In rentals of this type it's difficult to achieve a balance between rustic and convenient, and this property actually does. The location is quite remote, and some of the road (not much) leading to it could be called challenging, but it's fine (I drive a Prius and had no issues). You are actually ON the Shenandoah River. It's not exactly deepwater, but that allows for lots of water activities. The River House is on a good chunk of land, so there is plenty of privacy. The house itself is significantly larger than it appears. The living room is huge and very comfortable - the furniture seems to have changed a touch from the picture, and now the LR has an enormous sofa and 2 oversized loveseats (sofas, really - they're only loveseats compared to the sofa). Three bedrooms; while I can't exactly say they're huge, they are certainly comfortable and very well-appointed. Enormous kitchen with everything you may need, a separate dining room. And a screened-in porch with a table and benches - my favorite spot, where I speant about 80% of my time here. There's a hottub, too. Wonderful outside accommodations - a grill, a large picnic table, a bench right on the river, firepit, and a cement dock (called "The Dome", as I found out) that offers a spectacular view up and down the river. A separate note on the owner - who wins innumerable accolades for being incredibly gracious woth all my questions and fussing (of which there were a LOT - as I mentioned, I'm a big-city girl, this was new to me). The house was immaculately clean. Bugs. I hate bugs. I was very concerned about potential bugs. And there were hardly any. A spider maybe, a few unidentified flying things that minded their own business, and literally 1 mosquito in 4 days. Which is nothing, considering the location on the water. Perfect for bird-watching, and you'll see quite a bit of pretty fat squirrels. I honestly can't say enough good things about the property and property owner. Can't wait to come back!"

  • Can Not Say Enough About this 5* Rental

    "We return to this house year after year for an annual fall getaway and I honestly can't imagine finding any place more perfect. It is always clean and welcoming, beautifully appointed, and includes anything you could possibly need for a comfortable and happy stay. If you enjoy cooking or baking the kitchen is very well equipped and wonderful to work in. The living room is so comfortable, large HD TV, wonderful WIFI, and of course, who could be happier than we are sitting in front of the fireplace reading in ultra comfortable rockers. Our dog gets excited when we arrive too, her one chance a year to play in a huge fenced in yard...she thinks it's heaven. The location is great.. very close to all the attractions and points of interest. The owners are wonderful people, incredibly helpful, and always anxious to do whatever they can to make your stay a perfect one. You will not be disappointed if you visit this property, and chances are you will be like us and find yourselves anxious to return again and again."

  • Absolutely perfect!

    "My parents, husband and I stayed at Kathy's place a few weekends ago to enjoy the fall colours. The vista from the living room and deck is absolutely fantastic, both at sunrise and at sunset, and we really enjoyed all the cozy amenities (fireplace, outside grill, hammock...) We very much recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful outing near Shenandoah National Park. We also found the cabin very well decorated and equipped, extremely clean, and really comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer!"

  • Quaint, Rustic Mountain Retreat

    "Once again, the Gooney Lodge met out needs perfectly. We live in the area and when friends and family get together and there are too many people coming to stay at our house, the Lodge is our go-to back up accomodation. Our guests were charmed by its history and location. The rustic simplicity worked for all."
