Secluded along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains we have the ideal vacation getaway. This unspoiled paradise is perfect for a romantic rendezvous or a family retreat. With 10+ acres there is plenty of space to soak up the crisp, clean mountain air and enjoy the great outdoors. Walk, hike, or visit the nearby creek. Catch a glimpse of wildlife roaming the area. Play outside on the large front lawn and fire up the BBQ grill for a picnic on the covered patio. At the end of your day, watch the sunset from the porch swing, curl up by the gas fireplace or roast marshmellows around the campfire area. The cabin is located just outside Luray in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, minutes from Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns. Open year round.
Fox Den Cabin is a family run vacation rental in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Our entire family was born and raised in Luray, Virginia. We take pride in providing you with a great vacation experience and a clean, cozy place to call home whenever you visit the Shenandoah Valley.
Erik purchased this cabin in 2005
The cabin has a rustic feel, but is just modern enough to provide you with all the amenities of home. The property is bordered by rock walls dating back to the late 1800's. Years of hard work was put into rebuilding the walls as you see them today.
Very clean and centrally loctaed, cabin is nice size for smaller family, we had everything we needed there, would recommend to a friend
We went to the fox den for my Birthday/Valentines weekend. The place is cozy and comfortable for my wife and daughter and two dogs. February is there offseason so it's very quite but a lot of things close early or are closed for the
Season. The place is clean and a very good and quite location. I will diffently coming back in the summer!!
We spent new years eve and several days after at this adorable cabin! The place was so comfy and cozy we didn't want to leave and are already planning a return trip in the spring. The cabin is well appointed with everything needed to cook and prepare meals, and there were lots of DVDs and old records if you wanted to watch a movie or listen to music. The cabin was very clean and there were plenty of towels and other supplies to make the stay easy and comfortable. We brought our dogs and they loved playing ball in the huge yard or just chilling on the porch. The cabin is very close to the National Park, a state park and Luray caverns, as well as downtown Luray where we went shopping and exploring. There was not cell service in the cabin (AT&T), but a short hike away we were able to get service. I would definitely recommend this cabin to a friend or relative and look forward to a return trip in the spring where we can grill outside and light up the fire pit for a relaxing evening outdoors.
We were just married and wanted a quiet,relaxing, romantic getaway. When we arrived Erik had already set out a bottle of sparkling cider and some pumpkin bread with a big CONGRATS!! We were sooo impressed by the hospitality and we both were so happy we were there!! We started walking around inside thinking this is too good to be true..... As we walked around we noticed that it was very old fashioned but in excellent condition! There was a record player that looked like it was from the 70's with a cassette deck and a whole bunch of records in a crate underneath!! Loved that.... Brought back so many memories!! Then ,we checked out the bedrooms. The master bedroom had a flat screen. The other bedroom we didnt stay in but it was nice also. The living room had a nice vibrating message type two seat combo and worked well... We laughed about the message chairs like if we used them we wouldnt move to do anything else...lol... The living room also had a log gas fireplace... Very pretty and warmed up the entire cabin very quickly and looked cool at night!! Cabin also has central air and heat! Living room also has a tv with dvd player and a cd stereo. There are dvd's in a drawer underneath. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed except whatever you were going to eat. But, there was all utensils ,pots and pans,DISHES!!, PAPER PLATES, matches , lighters, paper towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies, all condiments in the fridge....ALL OF THEM! WE LOVED IT!! Everything was clean and we left it that way!! Theres a gas grille and a small charcoal grille with charcoal and lighter fluid!! Porch has a huge area with a couple of nice rustic wooden porch chair rockers, very pretty , and a porch swing which we used in the daytime too look at the HUGE FRONT YARD!! Behind the cabin was a really nice sized fire pit and a bench to sit on with a stack of firewood already cut. There;s NO CELL SERVICE so if you are looking to make phone calls or internet on your phone forget it. We didnt get any messages sometimes for hours. We would be sitting in the living room then all of a sudden the message would make it hours later!! There is a land line phone for local calls and if you need to call long distance get a calling card or have them call you there!! No big deal for us because we wanted seclusion anyway!! The towns people were very friendly and the brookside restaurant was a nice place to eat. Go to harrisonburg for golden corral!! Thank you Erik! We will be back!!!!!
For people who like to plan vacations the way I do I find that sometimes you just don't get it right, other times you almost get it right, and then there are other times when you get it right. We got this one right.
This cabin can teach many things among which is the joys of quietness. I got up one morning in order to go out on the porch and catch the morning gifts of fresh air, cool breezes, and morning dew on a spotless lawn. The day we arrived, the lawn was spotless, but the next morning, leaves had begun to fall, and the sight of fallen yellow leaves, and a cup of joe, on a crisp October morning, with natures symphony in the background, deepened our Fox Den experience.
I join the chorus of reviewers who described this cabin as, neat and clean and I would add homey to the refrain. This is a "no frills" cabin that is filled with frills. This is not a contradiction in terms. It just depends on what you mean by "frills". If, by frills, you mean a hot tub, a game room, etc., then it is, no. But, if by frills, you mean, listening to John Denver on a quiet morning at the breakfast table, or sitting on a porch where everything rocks including the swing, the porch bench and two of the largest, most comfortable rocking chairs you have ever seen, or, sitting on the porch after a delightful day of activities, while the sun is setting and a cool breeze is making the kind of nature's music that people buy and play on their sound systems to sleep by, then Fox Den is full of frills.
Fox Den teaches me that there is nothing better than old things that are well kept. The cabin is full of old things that seem to have souls that deepen with age. The quilts, the turntable, the art on the wall, the dressers are all well kept and beautiful. Everything in the cabin is convenient and user-friendly. Erik is more than a host or a facilitator. He appears to be more a part of all that I have described rather than merely a host. If anyone wanted to enjoy a getaway then this is the place to get away to. My wife and I will likely return to this place.
Our main reason for coming to Luray was the convenience to the Thornton Gap access to Skyline drive and hiking in SNP; we found this property last year and loved it so much we returned again this year.
The upgraded living room and new central air conditioning were surprise bonuses on our return, but luckily we didn't need the AC during our June week (except to cure a little stuffiness from being closed up during the daytime when we were gone).
Basically we were up and out by 9;30 every morning for hiking or kayaking on the river, and then back by 4:00 for dinner and nighttime fire in the fire pit. We had brought our own croquet and bocci and played them on the lawn.
A big plus is the amount of porch space with roof overhang, meaning that if its raining you can stay outside much of the time and play games on the picnic table.
We found nothing lacking and as such I've never spoken with or met the owner, except as part of the Homeaway booking process. I would certainly consider another return if we decide to come back to Skyline for another year of hiking.
First off, Erik (the owner) was so accommodating to our needs and questions. Really went above and beyond to help me organize our weekend trip!
The cabin is so wonderful! Easy to find, easy access to food markets, gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, but you still feel like you are in a private secluded area. Very quiet and relaxing. Upon our arrival we heard charming singing bells far off in the distance, right before sunset and that was just magical! The front porch is huge, with a delightful swing to enjoy your morning coffee while you gaze over the well maintained front yard! The side porch provides a charcoal and gas BBQ pit and large picnic table. There is a nice size stone fire pit behind the cabin! Our dogs loved running all over and fetching on the huge grassed yard!
Inside, the cabin has brand new upgraded wood flooring in the living room, with brand new sofa and reclining love seats to enjoy the view from the huge picture window overlooking the front lawn. Our favorite feature was the record player with the fantastic selection of vinyl country classics. We played some great classics while BBQing outside, or getting ready in the morning! The kitchen was well stocked!
The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water and clean towels and linens. The cabin is heated by baseboard heating, which has individual controls for the living spaces, which was nice, and a wonderful gas fireplace in the living room for added toasty warmth for the evening! The entire cabin was superbly clean, and lots of useful travel and sight seeing information.
Location was great for all the entertainment the National Parks had to offer, and every single local we met was so friendly. We hiked the White Oak Run Trail, which had multiple waterfalls, great riverside places to relax, and breathtaking views! I have to say this little cabin was just the perfect get away for us and our dogs! Thank you Erik!
