Overview

Luray Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Enjoy natural beauty at this historic retreat on the banks of the Shenandoah River. Built in 1739, Stonewall Crossing sits on 25 beautiful acres with nearly a mile of riverfront views, a meadow, a pond, a quarry, and views of the Massanutten mountain ridge.

Stonewall Crossing is a unique, welcoming respite in the countryside that sits on the banks of this historic river. The original two-story log cabin has been beautifully renovated. The lower level serves as the Great Room, complete with a bluestone fireplace built from rock quarried on the property. In all, the house features four large bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. The décor of each bedroom draws inspiration from the original structures of the pioneering families and Shenandoah Valley farmers who have lived here over the past three centuries.

Stonewall Crossing also features luxurious, modern amenities. A fully appointed, chef’s-quality kitchen with granite countertops opens to the dining room--perfect for cooking, entertaining, and gathering to enjoy special meals. Off the dining room and surrounding the house is a two-story deck overlooking the river and perfect for socializing, watching the sunset, stargazing, or relaxing with a good book.

Stonewall Crossing is located in the Shenandoah Valley nestled between the Shenandoah National Forest and the George Washington National Forest. Stonewall Crossing’s deck provides a stunning view of Strickler Knob, considered one of the top hikes in the Mid-Atlantic region.

About The Owner

Stonewall Crossing is the vacation home for three-generations of a family that has endeavored to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of this homestead. We live and work in the area, and we frequently ‘runaway’ to Stonewall Crossing. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2004

Why The Owner chose Luray

Only 90 miles (a 2-hour drive) from the Washington DC area gives you enough proximity for a weekend escape, but sufficient distance to provide a respite from city life.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy swimming and kayaking in the river, the proximity to excellent hiking trails, the beautiful mountain views and the peacefulness of country life. We also love to cook and entertain and the property is perfect for that.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a perfect location for our girls get-away and birthday celebration. We absolutely appreciate all the attention to details and upgraded features. The kitchen is fully stocked and we staged two amazing meals.

We had the most wonderful time. Everything and I mean everything was just perfect, very clean and beautiful! Our family could not have had a better time. We will be returning for a longer stay in the near future.

Our fantastic time at Stonewall Crossing

  • 5 of 5

My family of eleven traveled from Belfast, Northern Ireland to spend time in Luray, quite a journey!! We have spent many vacations in USA (POP'S TOURS as the family jokingly call them) over recent years but nothing ever surpassed our time in Stonewall Crossing. The setting of the home and the superb standard of accommodation could not be matched in comparison to any of our other rentals. We felt so at home that we had such a difficulty leaving, we felt that we had taken over ownership (wish we had). We all thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks and the Shenandoah River. For months we all had tried to imagine what the house and grounds would actually be like....nothing that we could have dreamed about could have been as memorable. Why is Stonewall Crossing so far away from Ireland???? The young members of my family had been "concerned" that there would be no television, but when they arrived there was so much to do that no one missed it, indeed there were so many books and board games in the house, we could still be there! We had such an opportunity to have fun and family fellowship together over our time. I could write so much about our stay. Brilliant. We will return again.... POP

Almost Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Rented the place for the weekend for a wedding and it worked wonderfully for our purposes, however it was clear that certain things in the house were not being taken care of--the airconditioning wasn't working (though they promptly sent someone over to fix it), the dishwasher flooded, and the shower upstairs leaked into the ceiling below. They just had people in the house for weddings the two weekends before, so it could have just been unfortunate timing for us, however I would expect that the house is ready to move into regardless of last week's events, since you pay for both an event and normal rental fee. Otherwise, the house is very comfortable and works perfectly for a wedding. And the owner and caretaker were very helpful and accommodating.

Great Wedding Location

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding at Stonewall Crossing over the Memorial Day holiday and it was fantastic. The house and the property sit on a gorgeous piece of land on the Shenandoah river and everything was beautiful. We had around 75 people at our wedding and the property was more than capable of comfortably accommodating. Gladys, the property manager was nice and easy to work with. She was flexible with us on the wedding amenities (tents, toilettes, etc) and it went great. We had one small snag with an upstairs bathroom, but otherwise things went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Stonewall Crossing to anyone looking for a beautiful place to do a small to medium sized wedding.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host this wonderful event for you both. It was so easy to work with you and Mason. So glad everything went well with the event. Hope the honeymoon went well and you are all back settled. We truly hope that Stonewall Crossing helped you both build memories that will last a life time!!!!

Great location for our company retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Stonewall Crossing for our company retreat in May 2014. It was the perfect venue -- lots of space for 7 women to spread out. Everything was just beautifully finished -- we did brainstorming sessions in the game room, yoga on the upper deck and ate dinner on the gorgeous porch overlooking the river. There were plenty of beds and spacious bathrooms so that everyone could be comfortable. We even took team photos on the grounds. The *only* thing I'd add that we didn't know before arriving is that the house is located very close to a country highway. It was not a huge noise issue, but it would have been worrisome if we'd had kids. Otherwise, Stonewall Crossing was just perfect! Thanks for the great stay.

Exceeded expecations, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

As frequent VRBO and AIRBNB users, we're pretty picky about where we stay and this home exceeded our expectations.

The home is on a beautiful property and the house itself is well maintained and clean; the design is rustic and comfortable, but not fussy or overdone.

Though close to a large road (211), the home was private and quiet, with a great deck overlooking the river, an outdoor fireplace and grill, and huge back lawn. Endless hiking, kayaking, cycling are just out the door....

Linens were clean and in good shape, bathrooms and kitchen were attractive and functional, and there were plenty of odds/ends (extra pillows, blankets, pots, pans, etc) that make a stay much easier.

Communication was great and payment was simple.

We'll be back!
