Dear Hensley Family,
Thank you so much for renting your beautiful cabin to our family. Our children absolutely loved every minute staying there and were quite sad to leave. The warmth of your cabin , the decor , the outdoor amenities like the fire pit and wrap around porch , along with the perfect setting along the Shenandoah River made for a magical and relaxing family vacation.We could see all of the thought and details that went into your home ; it is perfect for a family retreat and everything we needed. It was also a nice addition that there were children toys and movies available for down times.
We were able to visit the beautiful Shenandoah Caverns and accompanying family friendly museums as well as eat a delicious lunch at the stunning historic Mimslyn Inn , all was fantastic ! Everywhere we went everyone had great hospitality and K
kindness. The mountains and scenery in the Shenandoah area are breathtaking and something everyone should experience.
Thank you again for opening your cabin to us. We had a wonderful time ; our children are already asking when we can return to Papa Bear's River Cabin ! ( They loved the stuffed Papa Bear and Baby Bear in the cabin as well as all the bears throughout your decor ! )

We love this cabin. The location is fantastic and the rooms are cozy. The men in the family are suggesting updated TVs but everything else was fantastic. This was our third time to stay here and we hope to come back next year.

Our only regret was that we weren't staying longer! The property itself is expansive and scenic, right on the river. The firepit is far removed from the house, which meant earlybirds could enjoy a quiet house when they went to bed, while the night owls hung out by the fire. The house itself is beautiful and well-appointed. Wifi also worked well, a pleasant surprise given that it's so remote. We would definitely go back.
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!
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!
