GREAT JACUZZI!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with my mother and aunt who were visiting us for the summer. We live close to DC and needed a nice getaway place with a Jacuzzi. Lani and Garth's lovely cottage met our needs in every way.
They had enough towels, paper towels, toilet paper (although if you brought some, it will be nice to leave some for future guests!) and some bathroom amenities. If you need to go grocery shopping, Front Royal is within 20 mins. FYI: we shopped at Martin's and it was very clean with good selection of food.
Fox Meadow Winery wine tasting was very close. We bought wine there and enjoy dinner and wine at this cottage.
Jacuzzi had a light so you can still enjoy taking a hot tub at night. No problems with Jets and temperature. Not too many mosquito but I would recommend guests to bring bug spray.
Playground was my 5 yr old son's favorite! They enjoyed playing with toys in their bunk bed room. Beds in master and upstairs had comfortable mattress. Dining table was bigger than it looked in picture.
It took a while for us to get the key out from the box but once we figured it out it was easy.
There was an issue with my Paypal account which gave Lani and Garth a hard time to give us refund but they were very kind about it. We had wonderful time there and hopefully we can come back again next summer!

Thank you!

LOVELY WEEKEND GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is nicely laid out, even with neighbors on both sides the main view is just of the woods, so it feels like it's very remote. And it's quiet, exactly what we look for when we leave downtown DC.

The owners do something that I wish more owners did, which is to have a basic stuff around the house. They don't advertise it, of course, because there's no guarantee of what will be there for any specific guest, but I hate showing up at a place where there's no paper towels or salt and you kick yourself for not packing everything like you were moving to a new place.

Instead, Lani and Garth have stocked the bathrooms with Costco shampoo and soap, the kitchen has some napkins and paper towels and salt/pepper, the frig has mustard and ketchup, so if you forgot them you're not out of luck when grilling hot dogs. This is exactly what I'd do should we own a place like this.

CHARMING! THE LOCATION IS PERFECT FOR A GETAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house! The pictures don't do it justice. It's much more charming in person. The tasteful decorations make it a warm and comfortable environment to relax in. The house was fully furnished with everything you could think of. There were plenty of pots and pans, dishes, utensils, etc. Everything was very clean and well kept. The hot tub was relaxing. The location is very private. It's a perfect escape from life. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and will definitely be back again. Oh, and the view was amazing. The back of the house is all window, so it looks out into the forest. It felt like I was in the middle of nature. Beautiful!

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at the Sweetspire cottage twice in the past 6 months and we thoroughly enjoyed both our stays. Being just an hour away from Washington D.C, the Linden/Front Royal area is a popular destination amongst our friends for a quick weekend trip. Our group of 6-8 friends have stayed at multiple cottages in the area over the past few years and all our friends agree that the Sweetspire cottage was the best. The range of kitchen utensils, the presence of a dishwasher, the 2 bathrooms, the gas grill and the hot tub are the amenities that differentiates this place from the other options in this area.
The location is close to the wineries and a wide range of trails. We drove to SkyMeadows park, which is about a 15-20 minute drive and did a quick hike up to the Appalachian trail.
Lani and Garth are very responsive to any questions and are great people to deal with! Thanks guys

THIS PLACE IS GREAT

  • 5 of 5
Had a group of friends stay here for my fiancee's 30th birthday. First off, the pictures don't really do the place justice. It was nicer than expected on the inside and has a huge deck on the back. The patio on the first floor also has a fire pit (opposite side of the hot tub) which was great, and they have plenty of wood underneath the second floor deck (it rained when we stayed so it was nice to have dry wood). They have a swingset which would be great for kids if you brought any along

Also, the location is great if you are looking to go to wineries. There must be a dozen within 10-15 miles of the place. The Appalachian Trail is as close as the writeup states as well.

Very nice place, will probably be going back at some point and highly recommend

KID FRIENDLY!

  • 4 of 5
My family (my wife and I, her parents and our 4 very little kids) just spent the weekend near Shenandoah and stayed here. We loved it. Huge window in back of the house with a nice view of the woods. A little playground for the kids. Nice back deck with hot tub. Our kids loved the loft as well as the bunk beds. It was very nicely kept - everything was very clean. We would go there again for sure!
