Massanutten House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

The Overlook at Massanutten is just around the corner from the Massanutten Ski Lodge, and one of the few homes within walking distance to the slopes. Walking or driving, you can be on the slopes in no time. As one of the closest homes to the ski slopes, you can return for hot chocolate mid-day and place your skis and boots in the screened porch. It is perfect for a family winter ski trip or to enjoy the Four Seasons Resort and Shenandoah Valley area any time of year.

Step onto one of the two balconies to overlook the Massanutten Valley through the trees that separate the house from the ski slopes. The Overlook is a spacious 5 bedroom home with open vaulted ceilings. Upstairs is a full kitchen, fireplace, screened porch, great room with family and dining area with seating for 10, master bedroom with a queen bed, bathroom, and utility room. Additional sleeping arrangements upstairs include a queen-sized sofa couch and a full-sized roll-away bed. All beds are new pillowtops.

A balcony walkway off the family room leads around the house through the screened porch onto a rear balcony, where a barbeque grill awaits evening cookouts. The family and dining rooms boast a vaulted ceiling and numerous large windows provide light and views. Two sliding doors lead outside to the balcony for more beautiful views.

Downstairs are a full bathroom and four bedrooms with: (1) a queen bed; (2) two twin beds; (3) twin bunk beds; and (4) a sleeper queen sofa. The fourth bedroom, which has a private door, can double as a downstairs family room with games and television. The washer and dryer are also located downstairs. The walkout basement leads to the second balcony, providing a great area overlook.

The Overlook is centrally located to numerous year-round amenities, including the outdoor pool, miniature golf course, ski lift chair-ride, go-cart racetrack, Mountain Greens championship golf course, and Fareways Restaurant and Lounge. Use of the pools and hot tubs currently requires a guest pass that may be purchased when accompanied by an owner, which we can arrange. Other amenities, including the new Waterpark and horseback riding at Woodstone Meadows and much more, are also available at the Massanutten Resort.

There is plenty of parking, with four parking spots in the driveway and two off-street parking spots as well. In all cases, please be respectful of the full-time residents who live in Massanutten Four Seasons Resort.

About Ryan or Barbara

We are a family of nine, with seven kids age 16 and younger.

Ryan or Barbara purchased this house in 2004

Why Ryan or Barbara chose Massanutten

While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. Just a few months later we purchased The Overlook at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and used the resort for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. Now we live in Idaho but still return to Massanutten regularly as a favorite vacation spot. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added three additional Massanutten homes to our inventory, including The Overlook at Massanutten, and rented to more than 630 families. We hope you will enjoy The Overlook at Massanutten as much as our other guests have.

What makes this house unique

In the summer, we purchase the 'pool pass' that allows our guests to use the owners' outdoor pool. This is a great pool with some privacy that really avoids the mass crowds that can attend some of the other indoor pools.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was a wonderful place for our extended family. It sleeps 14 but keep in mind that includes two queen size sleepers. Kitchen needs a toaster that works. Great gathering space in living/dining area. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Fine Estabishment

  • 5 of 5
First time to the Massanutten area and we happened to pick the perfect home/location. Awesome place with two decks not just one. Deer running free around the property (but are protected). Fishing is close by in North and South Rivers that form the Shenandoah. Super Great Room for telling the days fishing tales.
Note to future users bring your own paper products.(our bad).

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is in the perfect location at the resort. The home is close to all of the activities, but still seems very secluded and away from it all. It was the perfect relaxing getaway. We liked the rustic cabin feel of the home and felt like it made our weekend getaway even better. We found the home to be clean and well kept. It was cozy and the large family room with the vaulted ceilings really provided a great place for the family to gather and sit around and talk. There is access toe the outdoors from all sides of the home with two decks, a side porch and large windows upstairs. The amenities were good with pots and pans for cooking and serving pieces. And having access to the outdoor grill on the porch right off the family/dining area really made our barbeque cooking work well. We had a great time and hope to return again. You can't beat the price for what you get.

Nice cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
This was a great home to get away to. It is truly secluded, even though there are lots of activities and things to do at the resort. But the cabin is set back in the woods and really gives the feeling of getting away from it all. The vaulted ceilings in the family room make it seem very spacious. And the furniture has been upgraded from the pictures in the photo, so it was even nicer than expected. Good place.

Great secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a great weekend stay at this home. It is cozy and has a good cabin feel, just what we wanted for our mountain getaway. The home is very close to most of the activities at the resort. The main ski lodge and general store are just around the corner, and the home is at the top of the mountain near hiking trails. The home has all of the amenities you need to enjoy the vacation and the vaulted ceilings in the main living area really made the home seem more spacious than it actually is, which was good. Most of the bedrooms (other than the master) are downstairs, which was actually nice to have a place to getaway from the main living area. The views of the forest behind the house from the top deck were great. We grilled out there and enjoyed a great dinner outside and really felt like we were away from it all. And there is a side porch to enjoy the weather. One day it rained and the screened porch was a nice place to be. You can't go wrong with this house, especially given the price.

Perfect for what we needed. Easy owner to work w/

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for what we needed. The owner was very easy to work with and the property manager was very accommodating at the end of the weekend. The house was the perfect size for 11 of us on a surprise birthday weekend. The downstairs is 4 bedrooms with the master on the first level. Considering going back in the Spring.

Beaware! House was full of cob web and dust!

  • 1 of 5
We had a family gathering here on this Memorial day week end. We reached at the house around 9 PM. The house was so full of dusts including the beds down stairs. I had to clean the house at that nights since we had to use those beds. The contact person was not reachable at all for any reason and never returned our call. Moreover, I am still waiting for my security deposite check. After contacting Ryan already a couple of times it has not arrived yet after 2 months. I realized the reviews on this property was was mostly written by themselves. So I decided to write this review so that other people like me are aware. This is the first time I have rented property through this Homeaway.com website and I am not satisfied the way it ended.

Owner's Response: I have spoken with the renter at length about her rental experience. She has acknowledged getting her security deposit back (even before her review posted) and acknowledged that her review was in large part a response to the delay in receiving that refund check. That delay was my oversight and I have apologized to her for that. We aim for timely refunds and have succeeded in that process in more than 900 rentals in our homes over the last 10 years. This was an unfortunate oversight, which was immediately resolved as soon as it was realized.
As to the condition of the home, we take great pride in our homes and have a full-time on-site manager who is on the mountain at the resort 24/7 and oversees the cleaning and check-in and check-out process at each of our homes. We simply do not permit any renter to arrive at a home in less than ideal conditions. In fact, our on-site manager did show up at the home after receiving a message by the renter, and they were not there. Multiple calls back from our onsite staff were never returned by the renter and no specifics were ever given as to anything that could be addressed. Over the years, on the rare occasion when there has been an issue raised at check-in, we have always responded immediately, as was done here. I am disappointed that any renter at any of our homes would feel less than fully satisfied with a rental experience. The Overlook in particular is one of our most popular homes, in part because of the rustic, cabin-like feel to the home. We would welcome the chance for another opportunity with this renter to show first-class service. Regardless, we aim to provide that service to each renter, and our lengthy history of positive comments (which are all legitimate comments that have been received) and return customers reflects that directed and ongoing commitment to service.
