Deluxe 1 Bedroom Cabin with Hot Tub and Shenandoah Riverfront

”It is the marriage of the soul with Nature that makes the intellect fruitful, and gives birth to imagination.” Henry David Thoreau

Welcome to Walden! A place that combines the beauty of the natural world with the warmth of a modern cabin. Located on 54 acres along the historic Shenandoah River, Walden offers one of the most spectacular retreats in the valley.

Completed in 2013, Walden is a deluxe one bedroom cabin that is timeless. Nature prevails through every window with the sweeping views of the land that surrounds you. From the moment you arrive the feeling is captivating. Walden offers a spacious living room with natural wood cathedral ceilings, a gas log fireplace, flat screen (satelite) TV, DVD, High Speed Wireless Internet, Stereo and a queen sleep sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped and for dining you have the option of eating inside, or just a step away, you can dine outside on an 8x12 screen porch. The bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan and 14 foot cathedral ceilings. Walk through the patio door on to the front porch and settle into a warm, relaxing hot tub.

A gradual walk through the field will take you to the river where you can relax under the shade of the sycamore trees, dip your feet into the Shenandoah or have a relaxing evening around a fire. (The riverfront is solely for the use of our guests at Walden and Sundance, {VRBO#385043}

Walden is a place where you can understand what Thoreau meant when he wrote, “Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself the influences of each”

About Derek Goebel

I designed Walden to bring conform with its environment and bring the outside world into the cabin. This cabin, along with Sundance (VRBO 385043) are both designed and built by Woodside Cabins.

Derek Goebel purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Derek Goebel chose Luray

Walden is a brand new cabin that was just finished in February 2013. This deluxe one bedroom cabin offers all the modern amenities set in a unique private setting on the Shenandoah River.

What makes this cabin unique

Walden is located on the historic Shenandoah River bordering 54 acres of beautiful open land. Wildlife abounds on the property. A mowed path takes you to the river where you will find a firepit, chairs and easy access to the water. Wade into the Shenandoah and cast a line for some of the best small mouth bass fishing on the east coast.

Peace & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Walden's setting is lovely, presenting a mesmerizing landscape of mountains with fields gradually sloping down to the river-- beautiful to experience in any season. Clean, efficient living, it's a perfect space for reflection and renewal with easy access to many natural adventures along the south fork of the Shenandoah River and in Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect weekend trip to the Walden in May. The cabin is beautiful, comfortable, well-furnished, and completely updated - new bathrooms, new kitchen appliances, new TV. We enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast down by the river, relaxed by the fire pit in the evening, and soaked in the hot tub under the stars at night. And our dog loved the huge open meadow right in front. Not to mention that the cabin is conveniently-located near Luray, where we toured the caverns, and Shenandoah Park, where we hiked during the day. It was just two of us and our dog, but I think there is plenty of space for another couple or children. Derek was incredibly kind, flexible, responsive, and helpful as we prepared for our trip and after. We had such a great experience, we spent this last Thanksgiving at another Woodside Cabin - the Chalet (another outstanding place). We really cannot say enough about how great our time here was. We can't wait to come back!!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

The Walden was the perfect getaway cabin! Not only is it a short drive from Shenandoah National Park, but the cabin's property is as relaxing, peaceful, and beautiful as we ever could have imagined! The cabin still seems brand new, with all the amenities you would ever need, but not cluttered or too busy. The hot tub was perfect and totally secluded. We loved sitting out by the fire pit at night, and made smores both nights we were there! Right across the meadow (maybe 100 yards) is a beautiful, flowing river! There were plenty of chairs, a table, and a fire pit right next to the river- we took advantage of this peaceful set up for cocktails and appetizers both nights! The property is very private, you wouldn't know there were houses around if you didn't see them on your way down the road. The stars were amazing at night- the sky was so clear and the air was so fresh! We went to the cabin hoping for something cozy, romantic, and peaceful and we got more than we were looking for! Derek was an amazing help, from the homemade cookies waiting on the table to being available to call via telephone with any questions. We felt that it was worth every penny and more!

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed in many cabins but will look no further. the walden has it all, the cabin feel with every convenience. surrounded by open meadows and no other cabins in sight. you will see deer,birds of all kinds(bald eagles),and fox. the inside has lighting and electrical outlets in all the right places. add to that, AC and the VERY private hot tub and you have.....THE BEST!

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Perfect mix of everything you would ever need in a vacation home. Has all modern conveniences while still maintaining a "cabin" feel. Love the simple décor and the place was spotless. You can relax on the porch in the hot tub, drink your coffee on the screened in patio, or just chill inside and watch t.v. We are nature lovers so for us just being outside and watching Momma deer and her baby, the turtles, and all the birds was just a dream for us. We also enjoyed spending time by the river. It was so peaceful, quiet and calming. Even though you seem secluded at Walden ( we LOVE seclusion! ) you are not far away from stores, gas and places to eat. Make sure to see Skyline Drive and Hawksbill Greenway while you are there- so beautiful. We loved Walden so much and imagined how it would be to actually live there. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
