Guestbook comments from the owner

Here is a quote from an email the guest sent after their stay:

"We had a wonderful time while vacationing in your home. Thank you. The slopes were not crowded until Saturday and by then, I think we had all exhausted our skiing talents. The weather was perfect and the house was just the right size for our group!"

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great for our family. We had 4 adults and 2 little ones and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Toys and games and TV to entertain all ages. It was great to find a bed, high chair, and gate to keep our little one safe and happy. Everything we needed for a home away from home to enjoy our vacation.

Perfect for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Massanutten to ski for 6 winters, and this is the best property that we've stayed at! Now that we've found it, we hope to return every year. The layout is perfect for two families. There are two bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs, and all of them are nice and large. ALL of the beds are incredibly comfortable, the provided linens are luxurious, and the blankets/bedspreads are thick, warm, and soft. We all slept very soundly. The downstairs bedrooms do run a bit colder than the upstairs ones, so you might want to bring extra blankets as the owner suggests.

The living room is spacious and the couches quite comfortable. We enjoyed several board games around the table in the living room during our stay. The owner, Alena, is very responsive to any question or concern you may have. This property is absolutely wonderful and we would definitely recommend it!

Good layout for a large family Thanksgiving celebration. The kitchen was well equipped and large enough to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Alena was very responsive and made the rental check in and out process very easy.

We can't wait to welcome you back again, and again, and again!!!

Returning Customer

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay this year, and we were not disappointed. The House was once again the perfect compliment to our December graduation weekend. For this visit it was nicely decorated for the Holiday season and we were able to share another round of family memories in the valley. The house was a perfect set up and space for our family, and along with the helpfulness of the owner, our repeat decision was an easy one!

Perfect for 4 couples

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our long weekend in this home. It was perfect for 4 couples. We each had a spacious bedroom with a queen or king size bed. We also liked the privacy of each couple having their own bathroom. It is rare to find both amenities in a vacation rental home. I reviewed over 35 homes before finding this one. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. She even provided, upon request, a virtual tour of the home. Thanks, Priscilla and Joe
