Location Details

Rolling hills of farmland, distant mountains, and views of the South Fork Shenandoah River come together to create an idyllic vacation that promises peace and relaxation near the Shenandoah Valley! The home provides welcomed seclusion, while still offering easy access to Harrisonburg, 13 mile away, Staunton, 30 miles away, and Charlottesville, 50 miles away - all offering restaurants, shopping, historical sites, and much more, within an hour or less of the property.

In summer, cool off with an excursion down the river via kayak or canoe! Paddle the river solo or let Massanutten River Adventures guide the way. If you prefer land over water, keep your feet dry while hiking or mountain biking in Shenandoah National Park, featuring over 500 miles of trails ranging from easy to strenuous! Golfing is also readily available nearby at Lakeview Golf Club, Mountain Greens Golf Course, or Spotswood Country Club.

During your trip, treat yourself to a day of wine tastings at the local vineyards, including CrossKeys Vineyards, Marceline Vineyards, and Brix and Columns Vineyards - all located within 20 minutes of the property.

Come winter, strap on your skis or snowboard and hit the slopes of Massanutten, located just 7 miles away. Tear up the slopes, or choose a slower pace on the ice skating rink and tubing hill!

Head into the town of Harrisonburg to visit the James Madison University campus, or dine out at one the numerous restaurants, including Capital Ale House and Jimmy Madison's - an airy joint with Southern bites and whiskey. Shopaholics will be pleased to know that shops galore exist just an hour away in Charlottesville!

    The home listed offered us a home away from our home. Thoughtful amenities abound the house and really offered us a peaceful time. Kids (two teenagers and a preteen) enjoyed the swing, the backyard view of the mountains and the excursions to Shenandoah national park. The house comfortably accommodated our family of six. Would definitely try to revisit on a return trip.

    We loved the fact that this home was only about a 12 minute drive to one of the 4 entrances to Shenandoah National Park. We went into the park 4 different times, including a sunset viewing the last night of our stay, which was awesome. Home was very clean and lovely. Our family said it was one of the best VRBO's we have stayed at and we have stayed at quite a few. Wifi was good for our son who is a gamer. Our daughter loved the outside fire pit. Kitchen was well equipped. My husband loved the front room where he could sit and read and look at the mountains.

  • Wonderful home!


    We stayed at this lovely home Aug 2023. Wonderful views of mountains of Shenandoah National Park. My husband loved the front room with a comfy chair/ottoman where he could read and look at the mountains. With having 2 young adult children with us, having 3 bedrooms was a definite plus. House was very clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Large screen TV in the living room had lots of channels. Good Wifi for our son who is a gamer. Our daughter had a fire one evening at the outside fire pit, which was very nice. We visited Monticello and Luray Caverns as well as Shenandoah National Park. Being only about 12 minute drive to one of the parks 4 entrances was so convenient. Went into the park the last night we were there and captured wonderful sunset views. This was one of the nicest VRBO's we have stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few.
