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.

Our first family vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great long weekend at the Drake Lodge. It was warm and cozy and plenty of room for the grandbabies to play. The house was quite large giving us plenty of space for each family to have their own bathroom. We took a ride to see the community and were amazed at all the things to do. The little ones enjoyed the petting zoo. We will definitely come back when the little ones are older to enjoy all the activities offered. The owner was very prompt with any questions before my arrival. Thank you again for making our get away very enjoyable.

Drake Lodge - Lots of space and great views.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Drake Lodge. It was perfect for our group - 4 couples. The kitchen was well stocked. We had plenty of room at the large dining room table. The bedrooms were roomy (we used the four with the attached bathrooms). The lodge has to have one of the best views in the resort. We had a great time taking the chair lift ride to the top of Massanutten mountain. Plus we had 6 or 7 deer that walked by the lodge every morning!

Beautiful Home, Friendly Owner, Lots to Do!

  • 5 of 5
Our three generation family recently spent a wonderful week together at Drake Lodge. The house was beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, everything imaginable in the kitchen, and new furniture and rugs in the main living area. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures you see on the VRBO site. The owner definitely knows what a family might need to be comfortable, was prompt at responding to questions, and made several excellent suggestions as to what our family might enjoy.

There is so much to do both on the mountain and in the surrounding area! Our grandchildren (two grandsons age 5 and granddaughter age 8) loved the water park, the go-carts, and the pets at the Lavender Farm; our children enjoyed visits to JMU and UVA campuses and the sunset tour at Monticello. Luray Caverns was also a big hit.

My husband and I enjoyed the sunrises, the fresh mountain air, and the joy of being together! We usually go to a different state each year, but the house is so perfect, and there’s so much more to do, that we’re going back to Drake Lodge in 2015. It’s THAT good!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Yet another wonderful stay- this time there were thirteen of us, and we never felt crowded. Well stocked kitchen and gas grill meant we could eat most of our meals in. So much to do, too - we watched fireworks from back deck, hiked in the national park and on property, swam, visited caverns, and relaxed. Hope to come back soon.

Great place to spend a weekend

  • 5 of 5
Spent a long weekend here with a couple buddies from my high school days and really enjoyed the house. It's spacious, has a nice balcony and screened porch with a great view and is in a quiet and pretty secluded part of the neighborhood. When we weren't hiking or playing tennis, we were downstairs in the game room (our favorite spot in the house) shooting bumper pool. Our wives and kids didn't join us for this trip, but there would be plenty of room for everyone if we make a return trip.

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN
  • 5 of 5
We're hoping to return again next year to Drake Lodge. No surprises here at this lovely retreat. The beautiful views are accurately shown on their website, yet if you get up real early, then you'll capture the breathtaking sunrise and nature in its tranquil habitat.

The interior is spacious with all the right modern amenities, with a nice country feel to it. Plus, the Lodge is well maintained, clean and safe. The Proprietor quickly answered all of our questions about logistics.

I would recommend that people reserve this Lodge early, because it's THE place to stay!
