I loved every moment of staying here. Valerie and her husband were the most gracious of hosts. There were little touches that really made me feel welcome. It was a dream to go to bed each night with the sound of horses beneath me and wake up to see them outside my window. I loved greeting them, and saying good morning to the dogs. The surrounding area is absolutely breathtaking - there are mountains wherever you look. The sky changes to the most glorious colors. I loved hiking - Valerie helped by suggesting Storybook trail which was much closer than the ones I was looking at. I went to "You Made It!" pottery studio where I painted my own pottery, I visited the Luray Caverns, I went tubing down a river, and visited the Lavender Farm. Some of my favorite moments, though, were the walks I took along the road just so that I could view the scenery and the animals, and the nights that I looked up at the stars. The apartment has everything you need and more - I felt so at home that I didn't want to leave. I hope to come back again as soon as I can. I cannot thank Valerie enogh for such a wonderful stay. Such gracious hospitality... she went beyond hospitality or "customer service." This is someone with a heart of gold and a pure, kind spirit. If you stay at Gabe's Getaway, you will not be disappointed.
