Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Drake’s,



What a lovely oasis this home has been for us this past week!!



We assembled three families from Texas, Nebraska and Northern Virginia and had a lovely time sitting around the dining room table laughing about the fun we had that day and recalling lost memories from childhood. This was the best family reunion ever! This home made it feel like an “On Golden Pond” moment!



I could feel the love and kindness all around me in all of the small touches you’ve added and the stunning views.



Thank you and God Bless you.

Gorgeous view and cozy living space!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we have three families meet up for a fun weekend of snow skiing and adventure!! This year we had the luxury of staying at the Drake Lodge and was very impressed with the amenities, view, and location. In talking to the owners you can tell they want their guests to enjoy their stay and feel at home. Each room had a tv and full bathroom which was great for 11 people plus the dining room table was large so all of us could eat as a family!

A Presidential Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We travel with the same three families each Presidents Day and have done houses, condos and hotels. This place worked great for us - accommodated everyone comfortably, gave a great place to cook and gather. We all enjoyed the slopes, kids enjoyed the Water park and the adults enjoyed the local lavender farm, winery (we went to Cross Keys) and funky burger joint - Jack Browns Single Wide in Elkton. The burger joint is a must.

Fantastic home on Massanutten mountain !

  • 5 of 5

Drake Lodge was a wonderful home for our winter family holiday! The lodge had plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. A large living room with beautiful views of the mountain and a wonderful bedroom for the grandchildren. Our grandchildren loved having the basement to themselves! The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to cook your meals. The children enjoyed the waterpark, snow tubing and the kids adventure park. The owner was very helpful with answering any questions we had about the area or house. I would recommend the Drake Lodge for a wonderful vacation with your family or a group of friends.

Great for Family Get-Togethers

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Drake Lodge and just like before, everything was great! It was clean, well organized and had plenty of room. The owner is very well organized and the process was very easy. They have also updated the house with furniture, rugs and pillows. It's a really great place for our family from different states to meet up for the holidays. There are plenty of bedrooms and the large room with bunk beads was great for the all the kids. Also, there is a large beautiful dining room table which is great. Often times, rental places do not have great dining areas and with a large family, the large dining room table is awesome! Plus the view is great as well. The house is very close to all the activities (skiing, tubing, skating) but also on a very quiet street. I highly recommend Drake Lodge!

Excellent Family Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Drake Lodge! It was the perfect centralized location for our group to meet from four different directions. The lodge had LOTS of room, beautiful views, was very clean, had an excellent well-equipped kitchen for us to cook a complete Thanksgiving dinner. Our children loved the Massanutten water park and the children's museum closely located in Harrisonburg. The owner was incredibly helpful and gave very clear answers to questions. We would recommend the Drake Lodge! It was wonderful!
