NOSTALGIC LOOK, DUAL MTN VIEWS, PRIVATE RIVER ACCESS/DOCK

Shenandoah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Over shadowed by the historic Norfolk Southern Railroad and situated along the Shenandoah River this one of a kind post-civil war built private vacation rental, entitled the 'REEL EASY RIVER CABIN', has much to offer the history and outdoor lover with a nostalgic look, dual mountain views and direct riverfront access...canoeing and fishing are a must.

Centrally located just 15 miles from Massanutten Ski & Indoor/Outdoor Water Park Resort and historic Luray featuring Luray Caverns the most popular cave in Eastern America and an internationally acclaimed destination. Also internationally acclaimed is the Shenandoah National Park featuring the breathtaking Skyline Drive located only 17 miles from the property.

The REEL EASY RIVER CABIN has been uniquely renovated and furnished to preserve its historic character and country charm. On the inside you will find several old-school accents, games, antiques, vintage artifacts, movies, and interesting reading materials that will most certainly take you back to a time gone by.

On the outside, sit and enjoy both the river and the unique dual mountain views of the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountain ranges as the mighty trains pass by and cross the arched stone tunnel located on the property line or take a quiet walk through the tunnel to explore the civil war graves just up the old wagon trail.

The REEL EASY RIVER CABIN sits on a river view beautiful lot and offers a large enclosed deck, fenced-in side yard complete with dog house, 2 BBQ grills, 4 fire pits, and a floating dock for your picnicking, fishing and swimming enjoyment. Tubes, canoes and kayaks are provided at no extra charge for entire visit so that you can either canoe/kayak the Shenandoah River or just stretch back in one of our tubes and float your day away.

While you are out, note that wild life is abundant and frequently spotted are bear, deer, turkey, otters, bald eagles, geese, ducks and various other types of land critters and waterfowl. The large and smallmouth bass populations in the river are also abundant making for excellent fishing...from the bank, private dock or on the water.

We hope that you will decide to come visit and firsthand experience all that the Shenandoah Valley region has to offer and while lodging with us at this truly one of a kind private vacation rental. Fun is Waiting! (If dates are unavailable, please check sister property 'rolling rapids river cabin' just 1 mile down river @ vrbo.com/486825)

Perfect place to vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this cabin. It exceeded our expectations and our only complaint was how little time we had to enjoy it. The fishing and canoeing was excellent and we were thrilled with how close to the water and quiet it was. The rooms and decoration were fun and added to the experience. We enjoyed the fire pit, grilling on the deck and our dogs loved being able to hang out with us in the fenced yard. It was perfect for what we wanted for a weekend in the Shenandoah Valley. We are hopeful we can return soon. Thanks so much!!

Great Location in the Shenandoah Valley

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for a long weekend in late June. We were 3 adults, 4 kids, and a dog. The cabin is very dog friendly with the fenced yard. The location is great on one of the nicest stretches of the river. There is a public landing just a short way up the road, and you can easily float down to the dock by the cabin. The kids loved tubing and swimming in the river. The cabin has everything you need, and is very comfortable, quiet but not isolated. Ours kids slept through the train, but it scared my sister and her daughter even though I warned them about it. We stopped and went for a hike in Shendadoah National Park on the way down, and were fortunate to see four bears along Skyline Drive. We also went to Luray caverns and Monticello, although Monticello was kind of far away. Our biggest regret was not spending more time relaxing on the river. The owner was very nice and responded quickly to questions. We hope to go again next summer.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Again for allowing us to stay in the wonderful home! We enjoyed a family vacation with our children and grandchildren. Great location for the travel between DC and Salem, VA. The home is warm and welcoming and had all the things we needed or could have wanted. The screen porch and deck were our favorite places to be! The owners are also terrific and great to work with. We can't wait to plan another family river trip and would not stand anywhere else! Thanks Again!

Awesome Times!!!

  • 5 of 5
Very, very cool layout and one of the most beautiful views of the Shenandoah River. Open areas to enjoy most anything you could imagine from walking along the river or wandering up the holler up behind the railroad tracks!
Kids had a great time being kids outside from throw sticks into the river or old walnut pods at trees!!
The river house provided many things that we did not think to bring with us… thanks to the owners for providing such amenities. Will love to come back and enjoy the river later in the summer as this time of year, I could not imagine getting into the water to enjoy the inner tube float or wading along the bank fishing for those big bass that I saw while I was walking along the bank.
Also, seeing that beautiful Bald Eagle was awesome!!!
