Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you Papa Bear !! From the time we arrived till we had to leave, a good time was had by all ! We grew up in the Adirondack Mountains and some of us still live there. This reminded us of our home. Fishing was the best and swimming in the river was so much fun !



Thanks from,

Lovely location. Great for families.

  • 4 of 5
We got what we were promised and then some! Working with the owners was easy and pleasant. We spent a long weekend in the area visiting the Battle of New Market for the 150th anniversary of the battle and the Endless Caverns. Best of all was having such a beautiful place to stay. There were lots of toys for the children, but we enjoyed the outdoors most of all. The children loved opening and closing the gate at the road, running around, throwing rocks in the river, and roasting marshmallows for s'mores The one trouble we had was finding a food store. We did find one when we went out for dinner the first night. It was not what we are used to. Next time, I would bring more of my own food. One of our favorite things was the gas fire place. We used it to warm up the cool mornings and relax by at night. If we were in the area again, we would come back. It was a bit of an adventure for us - especially with the unusual amount of rain that had fallen before we arrived, partially flooded the road and flowed over the banks of the river (no where near the house). It was fun!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family had a good time at our cabin. There is a Food Lion Supermarket in the town of Stanley, Va. about 5 miles from the cabin and a Walmart in the town of Luray, Va. about 10 miles from the cabin. You are always welcome here at Papa Bear's River Cabin.

A perfect weekend in the Shenandoah Valley!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin listing and photos are extremely accurate. This cabin has a fully stocked kitchen and even provides young kid toys and table. The kids loved the trundle bed and the adults found the rooms to be very comfortable. Two families with young children from 20 months to 7 years old were able to fully enjoy a weekend away!

The view along the river is great and we saw many bluegill and bass if you are interested in fishing. The property was extremely clean. I always judge by the bathrooms and it was spotless. The hot tub was perfect once the kiddos went to bed. The owner's communication was super friendly. While we mostly relaxed on the property, Luray Caverns was the perfect little excursion for our families.

The only thing that would make this place even more perfect is if there was a canoe on site and have a dock for fishing, but we made do just standing along the river. We later learned there are companies that will deliver kayaks and canoes.

We loved that there was a gas and charcoal grill as well as a really perfect firepit area with plenty of space for kids to run.

We highly recommend staying at this cabin and hope to return someday!

Perfect getaway, beautilful location

  • 5 of 5
We had the good fortune of staying at Papa Bear's cabin during the weekend of May 10, 2013. We had a perfect experience. The grounds and cabin were beautiful, everything was exactly as pictures, but much nicer in person. The view of the river created an absolutely serene experience. It was great to just walk steps and have the river right there. My family really enjoyed fishing (and we caught a few!) and doing a campfire the 2 nights we were there.

The location is also extremely convenient, as we easily went to Luray cavern for a couple of hours to check out the caves.

Working with the owners was a pleasure, they were extremely responsive and very accommodating.

In short a perfect getaway, my only complaint is that I could not stay longer. I would highly recommend this cabin and would very much like to return myself as well!

Great cabin. Warmly decorated, well stocked kitchen, and plenty of room for a family with children. Outstanding view of the Shenandoah River. The picture shown in the review is taken from the river's edge!! Caught numerous small mouth and pumpkin seeds right from the shore. There is a public boat launch about 2 miles up the road which would be perfect for a 2 hour "fishing float" back to the house. Bring your canoe or kayaks. Enjoyed a great lunch at Artsian Grill in Luray on Saturday. We will be back sometime!!

Hot/dry summer of 2010

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks in August. The house is quite private as advertised. We found the condition of the outside of the house to be faded and deteriorated, particularly the deck and patio furniture. The pictures shown were obviously taken some time ago when everything was new. The hot tub was a recent purchase as stated, and we enjoyed using it. Don't be surprised if you see some frogs near the tub. They come up from the river and are good for bug control.
The inside pictures of the cabin were a true representation. The two bedrooms on the main level are small but comfortable. The bathrooms are beautiful and roomy. The A/C system works very well. All the glass in the house could use a cleaning to enable visitors to enjoy the view of the yard and the river! There is a roadway just behind and above the back of the house (bedrooms). Sometimes this can be noisy for sleeping.
To go anywhere in the area, including the grocery store, expect to travel at least 20 miles. We suggest bringing or buying what you need before going to the cabin.
As far as sightseeing, we recommend visiting the Shenandoah Caverns. They are a "must see" for visitors because the campus also includes two other places of interest making it a very nice day trip.
Due to the dry summer, the river was shallow and barely moving along, making it impossible to canoe, fish, or float. It is also dangerously rocky, and there isn't any easy access to the river from the property.
One more thing, the insects are ridiculous, particularly at night. They are plentiful and huge in size making it difficult to do anything outdoors at night.
So if you want to catch up on your reading or basically do nothing, this is the place to stay in the summer.
