SPECTACULAR SPIRIT DANCER LODGE: LARGE, RUSTIC, LUXURIOUS ON 60 PRIVAT

Etlan / Old Rag Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

Exceptional, Post & Beam, 4BR 3BA Luxurious Lodge with Loft, Decorated in So

Large, rustic, & luxurious are words seldom used together, but that's Spirit Dancer Lodge, a luxurious, energizing, rejuvenating, and ROMANTIC get-away far removed from the stresses of city life. We're on 60 private acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. We offer 4000 square feet of living space with queen beds in three of the four, spacious bedrooms with a soaking tub and shower in the master bedroom. A large, closed-in loft area has four twin beds. All rooms have large windows to let the outside in.

The great room has a huge stone fireplace, dining room and kitchen, all open together and has floor to ceiling windows with prowl front and Brazilian cherry hardwood floors. There's carpet in the other rooms. Our hot tub, at the end of our extensive deck, is perfect for star gazing or wildlife watching. Downstairs, you'll find our sauna room (5 person) with queen-size futon, 18 foot stone bar, game room, exercise room and 62 inch TV.

The sofa here has pull-out queen-size bed. The interior house is specially designed in southwest decor (Home Beautiful).

We're located in Etlan, VA, just off Virginia's Route 231, one of America's ten most outstanding scenic byways (Great for biking!). We back up to Shenandoah National Park & Old Rag Mountain, which offer numerous scenic hiking trials, & we have our own private hiking trails on the property. We have a stocked pond for 'catch & release' only, however, there's recreational trout fishing nearby on the Rose, Hughes and Rapidan Rivers. Visit many, outstanding wineries, cheese factories, historic sites, civil war battlefields, Luray caverns, historic Monticello and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Antique shop, bike, hike or just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery and numerous wildlife. Bird watching is also popular.

We also have a smokehouse which is great for all kinds of food. Our dining room table seats 16 comfortably and makes for memorable, candlelight celebrations.

Specially designed lighting throughout the house makes it very romantic. A massage therapy center will come to the lodge for your spa massage. We also have a picnic table atop cocktail hill where you can sip your favorite beverage while viewing the breathtaking, panoramic view of the valley below. It's Wonderful!!

The Lodge is ideal for family gatherings, corporate retreats, reunions, birthdays, girls/guys weekends & theme weekends: i.e. cooking, yoga, painting, photography, nature, birding, & much more. Planning coordinator is available upon request.

There are many scheduled events, festivals, and activities throughout the year. There are world class to down-home restaurants within 10-30 miles (Most notable, Inn of Little Washington). So come and relax. You won't want to leave.

Memories are made here!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Rained the entire weekend at Spirit Dancer but our family had the very best weekend in years! Great fun in a spectacular house. Watched deer feeding and a mother black bear and her two yearling cubs in the meadow directly below the cabin. We will be back and it should be even better with a little sun.

FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY PARTY

  • 5 of 5
The only reason I'm hesitant to give Spirit Dancer a great review is because I don't want anyone else to know how fantastic this place is. I went in mid November with a group of friends for my birthday party, and we were all blown away by the facilities and surroundings. The lodge is a home -- it shows in the quality of the furnishings and decorations, and the kitchen is impressively equipped. Sliding into the outdoor hot tub after a morning hike up White Oak Canyon is a pleasure not to be missed. Arrangements with Geri were smooth and trouble free. Can't wait to go back!

PERFECT REUNION

  • 5 of 5
A group of us met at this lodge, some friends for 25+ years, some distant friends, some strangers to most and it was the perfect location and home for our weekend. We felt welcomed and at home immediately and on our first night, when a storm rolled in, we turned out all the lights and gathered in the amazing living room with huge windows and watched the lightening in silence through the awesome windows. After a long day hiking Old Rag the next day, the hot tub and comfortable beds were welcome, as was the large dining table where we were able to enjoy a wonderful meal together.

I've rented from VRBO before, and this property and owners were great, and we definitely plan on returning! My only suggestion would be to update the stereo system to accommodate an iPod or mp3 player. Other than that, it was absolutely perfect!

NEW YEARS 2010 CELEBRATION

  • 4 of 5
We came up to this amazing lodge for New Years 2011 and had an amazing time. We came with a group of 12, 6 couples, and we were more than comfortable and completely charmed by the lodge and the scenic surroundings. It has quite a lot of character! We hope to enjoy many more weekends here. My only criticism would be that the stereo equipment is a bit antiquated.

MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
Five adult sisters vacationed here summer '10. The home is accurately described by owners & pictures are well done. We were all very comfortable, the home is beautiful & well maintained. Lots to do in the surrounding area, (hiking, vineyards, history, etc) & owner has lots of helpful information regarding activities.
We had a couple of issues initially (propane tanks empty, coffee maker inoperable), but owner was available to resolve issues. "Romantic" lighting described by owner is interpreted as "too dark" by 5 sisters vacationing without husbands :-) Great place for children. Would highly recommend this home.

I grew up in and lived in neighboring Orange County, VA, for 36 years. But I've been in California for the past 29 years. This is my second year at the Lodge as part of an annual "girls' weekend," and I'll happily be returning in 2011--and beyond! It's a wonderful location for a gathering like this; and the setting is ideal for revisiting the area and provides a refreshing reminder of all the things I miss about Virginia. I highly recommend Spirit Dancer Lodge!

This is the second year that 12 "girls" from Orange County High School, Orange, VA, had their slumber party at Spirit Dancer Lodge. It is the perfect place for us and we have already made reservations for 2011. This year, in addition to having a continuous fire going in the huge stone fireplace, we also had a fire Friday night in the outdoor fireplace on the patio. We began our weekend with an informal cocktail party - the weather was beautiful. We had a visit from a neighbor's dog, Gracie, who seemd so pleased to see us. This is the perfect spot to relax, knit, read, do a jigsaw puzzle, etc. I would recommend Spirit Dancer Lodge without any reservations. The owners are super.
