Clean, convenient, quiet, relaxing, good value

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great owner, property, and location!

  • 5 of 5
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!

What a great property!

  • 3 of 5
This is a fabulous cabin with great space and very clean. We stayed for a week along with our pet dog. It was very well maintained. There was plenty things to do and see in the area including the SNP, the town of Luray and Harpers Ferry site was nice. The only short fall was that the furniture was a very outdated and the bed in the main bedroom was so uncomfortable, we made due however by purchasing an air mattress and placing it on the bed. In the future I would update the living rm and bedroom (beds especially) furniture. Other than that it was one of the best places we have stayed in the Luray area without a doubt. We look forward to returning and recommending Fox Den to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We strive to keep our property clean and well maintained for every guest that stays with us. The oldest piece of living room furniture also serves as a great sleeper sofa, which is why we have left it in place. We will be replacing the living room furniture this year. The main bedroom mattress is firmer than the mattress in the secondary bedroom. Previous guests have referred to the mattresses as "comfy". The secondary bedroom mattress was replaced in late 2012. Finding beds that suit everyone’s needs and tastes is very hard to do. We will look into purchasing two mattresses of similar comfort level if this continues to be an issue. We always welcome feedback and advice on how to improve our property for future guests.

sweet cabin

  • 4 of 5
sweet cabin with an awesome firepit area. situated on a beautiful spread of land. no direct view of mountains or the valley, but the drive in and out offers amazing views and within 10 minutes you are easily on Skyline Dr.

The description here is very accurate and the kitchen is well stocked.

It's a great getaway place if you want a relaxing weekend.

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed four nights at the Fox Den and wish we stayed even longer! As soon as we drove into the driveway and saw the beautiful yard and surroundings, including a firepit, we felt right at home. The outside porch area and exterior of the cabin looked very well-kept. With the directions Erik gave us, it was easy to get in, and the interior was extremely clean. The cabin itself is really lovely--it has a really large kitchen for all of your cooking needs and there were even some items in the fridge that came in really handy during our stay. There were plenty of directions on how to operate the A/C and other appliances. We also used the grill a few nights and had a nice picnic dinner out on the patio. The porch swing was a really nice place to sit and relax. There was satellite television, but one request maybe for the future would be wi-fi. And that's only because we had absolutely no cell phone reception with the carrier we use. There were cell towers around, but just not for T-Mobile. We did find wi-fi at a coffee place in Luray and were able to let our family know what the phone number to the cabin was--then we waited each night for calls from them, so we were glad the phone was there and available for our use. The beds were pretty good--the double bed in the second bedroom seemed to be softer and a little more comfortable than the main bedroom bed. Otherwise, everything was well-stocked and our stay was like a home away from home. We're avid hikers, so getting to Shenandoah National Park from the cabin to the entrance station was extremely easy and quick--it's in a great location to access the park. I would highly recommend staying here--this beats any type of hotel stay by a mile! If we come back to the area, this is the only place we want to stay.

Perfect location and great exterior facilities

  • 4 of 5
The lodge is in a perfect location next to the Shenandoah National Park in the oputskirts of Luray. Access to the park is a 10m drive away. The lodge lies next to the forest is very quiet and in good shape. The exterior with the barbecue, terasse and fireplace are superb. Erik has also been a great host and the whole process was very smooth. He provided plenty of information on things to do and go in the area in the lodge. The interior was clean and the gas fireplace a nice addition. The facilities and furniture were clean and sufficient but not up to modern standards which is fine but given the high daily price I expected that the place had been recently refurbished. I should note, however, that end of April is high season and most lodges close to Luray were comparably priced. Finally I would like to mention that we forgot a guide book and other items in the lodge and Erik did send them to my DC address directly and free of charge which is much appreciated.
