Overview

Shenandoah Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cozy, luxurious, peaceful log cabin adjacent to a national forest, near river.

This cute cabin is like a resort. Immaculate 1280 sq ft. log cabin was built in 2009 and served as a private residence until 2014.

It’s literally a stone’s throw to a series of Civil War hiking trails and into the George Washington National Forest that has beautiful streams with trout, amazing wildlife and even a few waterfalls.

Less than 2 miles to the Shenandoah River boat launch, minutes from Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, New Market Battlefields, Shenandoah National Park and wine tasting. Massanutten and Bryce resorts are approx. 30 minutes away; both provide a wide range of year round activities; golf, skiing, water sports, indoor water park, zip lining, 5 star spa treatments, various restaurants and nightlife. Enjoy access to these top attractions and more, yet have the peace and quiet that comes from being hidden off the beaten path away from the crowds.

Cabin is easy to get to any time of year and offers a level ½ acre lot and long driveway with ample parking for your boat/motorcycle trailer or RV.

2 bedrooms both equipped with queen sized beds and 2 full spa like bathrooms. The kitchen is fully outfitted with new high quality pots, pans, utensils, bake-ware, Crockpot, tea kettle, paper products, foil, plastic wrap and anything else you can think of.

When you arrive, you may be tempted to grab a cold ‘something or other’ and pull up a seat on the covered porch overlooking a small flower garden, an organic herb garden and a large grassy area with fruit trees. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the gardens seasonal offerings.

Inside, beautiful brand new furnishings throughout provide a comfortable, inviting space for you to kick back and hang out. The family room offers a large, comfortable leather sofa, TV with DVD player and video library, internet access and of course a rock faced gas fireplace to cuddle up next to on a cold night.

End your day out on the deck barbequing on the gas grill and enjoy a cocktail in the comfortable conversation area overlooking a large serene, enclosed backyard. The 6 person hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a day exploring and offers incredible star gazing.

This is the perfect place to spend your vacation – quiet time alone or making memories with those you hold dear. That’s why we call it “The Great Escape”. Bust free from the craze and enjoy!

About Linda & Bob Jarrell

The Great Escape Vacation Rentals, LLC is a small family business. We own and manage our own property to give our guests the very best experience all around. We appreciate your support and look forward to making your vacation unforgettable.

Linda & Bob Jarrell purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Linda & Bob Jarrell chose Shenandoah

We have traveled extensively and selected this property for its charm, location and offerings. We felt like this is a cabin that we'd enjoy staying at - and we kept that in mind throughout the process of preparing it for your stay! We want you to have a great time, be comfortable and feel well taken care of.

This cabin is the quintessential mountain home featuring cedar log siding and an amazingly peaceful, beautiful location. Built in 2009, the interior is stylish and current with decor that mirrors the season.

Located near everything, yet secluded, peaceful away from the crowds.

What makes this cabin unique

We own and manage our own property to give our guests the best experience possible. No hidden fees.

Walk to the national forest, trout fishing, historical Civil War trails. Conveniently located near many Shenandoah Valley attractions, but away from the crowds tucked into a quiet, established residential neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

..." We had such a great time here in the cabin. The area is peaceful and drinking coffee on the deck is great. Walked to Catherine Furnace, drove up to Skyline Drive and enjoyed awesome views. Our dog loved the fenced in yard, the hot tub was a treat. Linda was very very helpful and she treated us like VIP guests."

clean, organized, lovely

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th cabin renting in this area and the Great Escape was also the "greatest" one we rented. It was ideal for a family of 4 and our dog. The owners took the time to shovel the last minute snow that compiled about 6 inches, and it was nice and toasty inside when we arrived. The inside was clean, and all the essentials were there including extras! The dryer was so great to have on hand to dry our wet clothes so we could get back into the jacuzzi! The view was spectacular, and it was so peaceful. There were stores close enough if you need them and we ate at the best Mexican restaurant out there. There wasn't T.V. which we found refreshing. Our kids didn't like that part so much-but we were able to rent movies-so our sanity was not compromised. But we took the time to play games and go hiking and build a snowman. We felt cozy, safe and at peace away from the craziness of traffic and schedules. Thank you to the owners for their attention to detail and making the "Great Escape" live out to its name.

Great Escape is right!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is better in person that presented on the site. It is beautiful, comfortable, welcoming and peaceful. We wanted quiet time out of the big city and The Great Escape certainly lives up to its name.

Linda and Bob are wonderful hosts and were responsive to our inquiry, they provided information that helped us with our planning and checked in with us along the way to ensure we had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay.

This is not the first cabin we've rented in Shenandoah, but we think it's the best by far. We'll be back.

Great cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in the cabin. We enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace and cooking on the grill and best of all the hot tub. The cabin feels very inviting and comfortable. It is a great way to escape a busy lifestyle and enjoy nature. Miss Linda was great with making sure we feel at home and we have everything that we need. I would highly recommend the "The Great Escape" to anyone planning a trip to Shenandoah.

Cozy, comfortable weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a spectacular weekend away at Great Escape. Linda graciously checked in before and during the trio to ensure all was well. The house is clean, gorgeous and cozy. Everything you could need was right there and the hot tub was an added bonus! Close to trails. Fenced yard for the dog. All in all, a wonderful weekend. We will definitely go back!!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5
Linda was a great host and the home was very well equipped.
My husband and I like to cook on vacation and we had everything we need. Even a crockpot which is great to adventure out during the day and come home to dinner being ready.
Great location for all activities we did...Monticello, Shenandoah National Park, Luray caverns. Love sitting at kitchen table and watching sun come up over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Highly recommend this home. Thanks Linda and Bob for sharing your home.

Great Fall Getaway in the Shenandoah Mountains

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful Fall getaway weekend in the Shenandoah Valley. Great weather, beautiful mountains and an outstanding cabin to call home. "The Great Escape" lived up to its name and more! A big thank you to Linda and Bob. They thought of everything, even shampoo for our dog Charlie! The cabin was immaculately clean and well appointed with everything we needed. The hot tub was a welcome sanctuary after a long day of hiking! We're already planning a return trip in the Spring.
