Golf Details: Massanutten Resort offers two challenging courses for your enjoyment only minutes from Cliffhanger. Mountain Greens is a tight track providing challenges from sloped fairways, mult-shelfed greens and several dog legs. All the while giving you fantastic views of the slopes and Massanutten Mountain.
Woodstone is an executive 18 that provides one of the nicest resort experiences with a shorter course layout. Don't let the fact it is an executive course fool you, there are plenty of challenges including water hazards along the way.
Locally you will find several courses. A favorite or mine and guests is Packsaddle Ridge. A true valley course, you will enjoy the layout, views, and excellent service offered by this facility. Less than 30 minutes from Cliffhanger, you will need to play Packsaddle!
Massanutten Winter Activities: Ski Season is a great time to be at Massanutten! Cliffhanger provides the absolutely best views of the slopes! Wake up and enjoy your morning coffee while watching skiers & boarders alike try their hand at the terrain. 14 trails provide something for beginners to experts. In addition to traditional ski runs, there is a terrain park and snow tubing.
For those who are not hitting the slopes, you can stay in contact by walkie/talkie from Cliffhanger. Watch family and friends come down the slopes from our decks!
4 Season Waterpark: Weather can sometimes limit what you can do on vacation. So why not enjoy one of the largest indoor/outdoor waterparks in the country! Enjoy the lazy river, high speed slides, wavepool (outside), and surfing area. There is something for everyone anytime of year!
We stayed at The Cliffhanger over New Years, and had one of the best New Years weekends ever! It was plenty big enough for our multi-family vacation! Obviously the skiing was awesome. But we absolutely loved our time in the home as well. Having an upstairs family room, and a downstairs family room allowed the kids and parents to both have space when needed, and come together when we wanted. The huge kitchen table was great for our big family dinners, and the bedrooms were so comfortable and spacious! The upstairs loft was bonus space for anyone who wanted to escape for a little! We also enjoyed some nice hiking, and just loved the tranquility and view from high up the mountain. Memories were made that will last a lifetime! I highly recommend The Cliffhanger as a vacation destination!!!
House is beautiful... view is spectacular .... Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!!
We oohed and aahed as soon as we walked into the home. One whole wall is floor to ceiling windows overlooking the slopes. This main floor living room is large, open to the dining room and kitchen and was the main gathering place for our family of 11 ranging in age from 1 to 70. I loved that even when I was in the kitchen, I was still with everyone. We were all able to sit at the table together. There is also a loft and downstairs rec area which some of us used occassionally. The bedrooms are large with doors to the wrap- around decks and closets so large that our kids put port-a-cribs in them and used them as nurseries for the babies. There are four full baths so each adult couple had their own bath and there was another that was shared by the teens. Perfect.
The owners supply all the basics (some places I looked at don't even supply towels) and give you a list in advance of things you might want to bring. They are very easy to talk to and had my deposit in the mail even before we got home.
We had the best time. The owners even had a Christmas tree there for us. The weather was cold enough for them to make snow on the slopes but warm enough that we didn't have to deal with ice or snow on the roads. The access road to the house is very steep and I do think it might have been a problem for our little rental car and this aging Floridian. Our kids seemed much less concerned.
The resort is impressive. We had debated between Wintergreen and this and this was by far the better choice for us. Although every one skied the first few days and loved it, we had rain the morning of our last day. Those in our party that are less that avid skiers relished the chance to go to the water park. (Bring towels- they don't rent them) There is so much to do in addition to skiing (see the website) and there is always that possibility of less than perfect skiing conditions. One thing I didn't see on the website but was great was a ski program for 4 to 11 year olds that runs from 8:30 - 1:30. - One instructor for six kids of the same age. Our 4 yr. old grandson loved it and was skiing by day 2.
Although in advance, the vote on where to go was divided, after our visit, it was unanimous to return to Massanutten next year.
The house was great. From inside the house or either of the two back decks you can't see any of your neighbors. It's a short drive to everything else in Massanutten. Beautiful views.
We very much enjoyed a relaxing stay at Cliffhanger. The home is clean, decorated beautifully and well-appointed. The view is wonderful. The kitchen is well-stocked, and we appreciated the plentiful towels and the little things like hand soap at every sink, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, etc. The photos on this site are accurate. I was a bit nervous because this was our first time renting privately. I felt more comfortable after speaking with the owner by phone, and I was glad to learn that they contract with a local company for onsite maintenance issues. This proved helpful when the gas fireplace ran out of gas ~ Wayne arranged for the maintenance folks to come switch the tanks. We rented in between seasons, but our young teens enjoyed tubing, the indoor water park, putt-putt and hiking. I enjoyed the best massage (Joseph) at the spa, and toured JMU with our 16-year-old. It was a great family week. Thanks!
Ski: As far as mid-Antlantic skiing goes, Massanutten is a great mountain! With updated snow making capacity in the last year, new express quad chair, and an enhanced park for boarding, no one will get bored! Cliffhanger is close enough to wave to the kids as they come off the intermediate lift and to see the house from the top of the mountain.
