Overview

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 - offering both Keurig and drip coffee makers, toaster oven, blender, ice maker, microwave, and Henckel knives. 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 almost 100 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 (lucky us - JMU alumni with 2 kids currently enrolled!) 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 believe in making it very easy for you to get away. One component is not having to pack all the boring stuff. So we 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

Best ski house in USA!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, the house is beautiful, like new, with everything you will need. But more importantly the owners are extremely kind, engaged and communicative! They make sure everything goes well. This is a rarity. They actually care about your experience!

Best VRBO house I've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Nut House! It's so rare to find such a stylish, contemporary, well-cared for, and CLEAN, rental property. The Nut House has everything we needed, and we appreciated that the owner stocked the basics so we didn't have to worry about buying hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, salt/pepper, etc. It was nice to be able to communicate directly with the owner rather than a management company, and she was so helpful in recommending places to see and good restaurants. We enjoyed Thunderbirds three times! Great food and friendly wait staff. The Nut House is gorgeous and I could take in the views all day long. It made me want to come back in spring and fall just to see the different foliage. There is a great, sheltered hot tub right out the sliding door (no traipsing through snow drifts to get to the hot tub) which shares the same great views as upstairs and is just above the babbling brook. Very relaxing! I might not recommend this house for very young children, ie. toddlers, because there are a lot of beautiful and breakable objets d'art and glass tables. But our 6 and 10 year old did just fine and loved it, too. Thanks for a great stay!

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!
