There are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen (including icemaker, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, crock-pot, etc.), a washer/dryer, and fireplace*. Linens, towels and soap are providedǂ. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.

On the large deck, enjoy the hot tub and fire cauldron (wood supplied) with tables and chairs, and both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.)

Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive. Find local attraction and event info on our Rainbow View Cabin website: http://rainbowviews.wordpress.com

We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.

Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:

The last mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.

We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. We are sorry that we had to implement this fee, but people were not abiding by the previous policy. If you don't advise and pre-pay for pets, we will deduct the fee during the refund of your security deposit. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.

We welcome well behaved children.

You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .

Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.

In winter 4WD or AWD is required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm.

ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.

* Fireplace is for ambiance only. Continual use will cause bedrooms to become cold. It is for burning Duraflame-type logs only, and only one at a time. During cold weather, one log (a 3 hour burn) is furnished for each day of your stay. For a longer burn than that you should bring your own.

(Due to past issues, burning regular wood is allowed only in the cauldron on the deck. Filling the cabin with smoke may result in your security deposit being withheld.)

ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 4), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming.

We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and retirees. Please advise us at the time of your request and please be honest about your status. We have had issues in the past.

Please access and like our Facebook page - Rainbow View Cabin - as that is where we post info about local restaurants specials, events, info about Shenandoah Park and any discounts we are offering on the cabin.

About Steve & Chris

We live just down the road a piece.

Steve & Chris purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Steve & Chris chose Front Royal

We've lived in this little rural mountain community for 30 years, and we've long admired the view from this particular property, so when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we jumped at the chance!

What makes this cabin unique

From the world's largest concentration of wild trillium to the abundant wildlife, whether sledding the hills, or just whiling away a lazy afternoon at the winery, we always enjoy each and every day on this mountain. Now you can also enjoy the view from the expanded deck and the hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures online didn't give enough credit to the work they did on the interior of the house. Loved the notes around the house, answered any questions we had. Perfect view! Very Clean! We came into town early and had the best French toast at the Front Royal Diner then drove on to see Luray Caverns. Before checking in we stopped at Fox Meadow Winery. Delicious wine and fun people working. Saturday we enjoyed a trip down Skyline Drive and a stop at Naked Mountain Winery. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Neat Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying @ Rainbow View Cabin. It is a home away from home in the mountains. They also allow you to bring your 4-legged friend with you so that the family is together (well-behaved). The hot tub is quite enjoyable and also the fireplace. Really, everything is there that you need except the food. You can also enjoy a massage of you'd like if you make an appointment for the lady to come there to the cabin. You don't have to leave once you are there if you don't want to. We will return at another date.

Perfect cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

Rainbow View was everything we needed for a relaxing long weekend. Chris and Steve have thought of everything you need and are easily reachable throughout your stay if you need anything else. The cabin is nicely renovated with a fully equipped kitchen and nice, clean bathroom. The hot tub is excellent... by far the nicest hot tub I have ever seen. I definitely do not recommend booking in the winter if you have a 2WD car. Luckily we had good weather but the roads are steep and unpaved. Definitely doable with good weather but would not have wanted to make the drive in a 2WD car in bad weather. The view from the cabin is excellent and though there are houses near by, we never saw the neighbors and it felt very secluded. We had nothing to complain about and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: It was great hosting you and we hope to see you back soon. Yes, as you mention and we stress as well in the listing, if there is inclement weather in the winter you should have either AWD or 4WD. We have someone who plows the driveway, the County plows the road and VDOT plows the main road. Great to sit in the hot tub in the snow.

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I almost want to say it was terrible so I can keep this place to myself. The truth is that it was simply amazing. Phenomenally generous and helpful hosts, very comfortable accommodations. The place is the perfect getaway.

Wonderful Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little place. Everything was immaculate and completely accommodating. The cabin itself has been well taken care of and has everything you could possibly need and then some. It also has an awesome view from both inside and while sitting outside in the hot tub. We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday and he even got a little b-day note from the hosts. It was great in the winter and I hope to come back in the summer! Thank you Steve and Chris for such a great getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guests. We're glad you had a great celebration and look forward to your next visit. Thanks for noting the efforts we have put into Rainbow View. You are absolutely correct, the view is amazing and one can't help but look at it from the moment of arrival.

Secluded but comfortable getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Rainbow View Cabin is simply wonderful. It has a secluded feel but is very comfortable. Believe it or not, the pictures can't do it justice. It feels like a birdhouse in the trees. Expect to arrive with all your needs and amenities met. Nothing is forgotten by Steve and Chris; towels, snacks, complimentary bottle of wine with sweet personalized notes, and more. Touches that you will not get elsewhere. DO heed their advice about the winter travel as the gravel road is quickly treacherous for non-4WD. A great getaway from the city; close to DC yet a word away! 5 stars, A+++.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. You were perfect guests and we are glad you had a great winter break. Hopefully we'll see you again in the spring or fall. Imagine the view in the fall.
