Fabulous house, relaxing week

I have vacationed in Shenandoah Valley for 12+ years because it has always been a place my dogs could come along and enjoy. Blackberry Hollow is the nicest place I have ever stayed! Everything a two-legged traveler could need is provided. I always bring along whatever I might need, but I definitely overpacked. The kitchen is better equipped than my own. The closets are packed with extra pillows, blankets, all the comforts. The main bathroom is luxurious, and even candles are provided for a relaxing soak in the gigantic tub. Awesome! And very clean, too. Extremely well-maintained home.
This house doesn't overlook the four-legged travelers either. Diana is clearly very pet-sensitive. There's is a huge crate, extra leashes, bowls, toys, beds, even dog biscuits in a canister on the kitchen counter. The backyard area is so well fenced that even my 10 lb terrier was contained. So nice!
Diana is a great communicator, and was extremely helpful start to finish. She is very upfront that the property is a bit remote, but that's part of its charm. So do think about loading up in town on your way in to the house. It's a gorgeous, peaceful drive, it just takes a little time and care because the last 8 or 9 miles are a gravel road.
We enjoyed Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, and Luray Caverns. All are just a short drive away. And I have to say the Walmart Supercenter is one of the nicest I've ever shopped.
I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone including friends and family. You'll love it!
