Massanutten House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Stylish and hip, The Nut is nestled in “the kettle” of Massanutten Resort, surrounded by mountains offering privacy and serenity. Treat yourself to an escape from urban crowds and pressures, and come unwind in Virginia's Beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

Our cozy home features a main level great room with floor to ceiling windows, gourmet kitchen, spacious dining area, TV nook, and deck overlooking woods with babbling creek. The three bedrooms (linens and bath towels incl) offer the following configuration: main-level, king-bedded master (1 K) and two upstairs bedrooms (1Q and 2T).

A huge outdoor hot tub completes your visit. With views of the slopes, it's a perfect way to end a day of skiing and tubing!! Comfortably seats 7 adults.

Our home is very warm and inviting, with comfortable furnishings offering a classic retro mid-century modern decor. We have had a great time traveling to estate sales for authentic and whimsical pieces that continue to delight our guests. But we have not forgotten modern conveniences...free internet, cable flat screen TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer, air conditioning, DVD player, CD player, etc.

The kitchen boasts anything a chef could need. And we make it easy: house includes all the “under the kitchen sink” necessities*. Just pack your clothes and food, bring a book, and you are all set. Don't forget your bathing suit for the hot tub!

Ideally located in the resort, at the top of the mountain, less than 5 minutes from on-site resort amenities: skiing, year-round tubing, zipline, ice skating (new!) spa, indoor/outdoor waterpark (biggest on the East Coast!), terrific hiking, golf courses, horseback riding, skateboard park, fishing, mini golf, bungee house, racecars, playgrounds, outdoor pool, summer concerts and festivals, etc.

We have 80+ positive traveler reviews! We have set this up to be our vacation home. No detail has been overlooked. We do not rely on a management company with lots of homes, instead choosing to manage it ourselves and visiting monthly to make sure things remain fresh and in top-notch condition. We strive to make this the best vacation house you have ever stayed in! Come enjoy our little slice of paradise at The Nut!!

*We choose to keep stocked for our guests: dish soap, scrubbies/sponges, brillo pads, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, paper towels, napkins, trash bags, cleaning spray, coffee filters, tin foil, saran wrap, big ziplocs, little ziplocs, spices, cooking spray, flour, sugar, sweeteners, salt/pepper, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, laundry detergent, flashlights, and bug spray. This is in addition to linens, pillows, bath towels, and extra blankets.

We strive to make this the best vacation house you have ever stayed in!

About Jo Pumphrey

My husband and I met at JMU, and fell in love with the Valley. We built our home in 2005 and have had a blast decorating it as our second home. We really enjoy sharing it with fellow travelers and helping to make family memories. Now our son and daughter are both at JMU, so we are here monthly, continuing to make this home the grooviest pad on the mtn!

Jo Pumphrey purchased this house in 2005

Our Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I have rented this house for four years in a row, and we love it! Our favorite summer tradition is coming together at the Nut for a weekend of hiking, board games, cooking together, and hanging out in the hot tub. This house is beautiful and well-maintained, and the owner Jo has always been a pleasure to work with. We would recommend this house enthusiastically to everyone!

What a FANTASTIC property!!!!! Believe it or not the house is better than all the pictures in the listing. Great location in the resort, close to the golf course, zip line, mini golf, slopes, and resturant. The owner is an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely responsive. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THE NUT!!!

Perfect Birthday Celebration Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house! We rented it to celebrate my husband's birthday and are so glad we did. The owners did everything to make our stay just right; from the quick email responses to the great recommendations of things to do. The house was decorated so cool; not your ordinary mountain rental property. It was clean and had absolutely everything we needed. We felt right at home. The floor to celing windows truly make the view and relaxing setting. The hot tub is perfect too. The area is great for things to do year round or to simply relax. The proximity to JMU makes it easy for our two oldest children to join us. We will definitely be back to stay again!

Fantastic mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Massanutten and decided on "The Nut" based on all the great reviews. They were right! The well decorated house is clean and welcoming. It has many stocked amenities that most rental homes do not, which was wonderful. Our family of 3 found it very close to all activities, which included a teenager. The zip lining nearby and the giant lava lamp were a big hit. It was nice at the end of the day to come back to such a warm and accommodating retreat. Thanks to the owners for keeping up excellence!

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 just finished our Summer vacation at the Nut. We loved it. The homeowners take pride in the rental, and it shows. It's well stocked, well maintained, clean and comfortable. We've rented a lot of VRBO houses over the years (various locations), but this one stood out. It was our first time at Massanutten, but we'd gladly go back.

JMU Graduation

  • 5 of 5
We came to The Nut for our daughters graduation from JMU, it was a great decision! The house was clean and comfortable, and being in the woods very quiet. Nice to come back to after graduation traffic. Loved sitting out on the deck with a cocktail in hand! The owners were so helpful and pleasant, they made the rental process a snap...thank you Jo! We would not hesitate to rent again, maybe during snow season next time.
