RECENTLY UPDATED: RIVER LODGE AT THE BASE OF MASSANUTTEN MOUNTAIN

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

Swim in the Shenandoah or hike the Massanutten Mountain at Seven Bends Lodge in Woodstock, VA. Guests return year after year to our rustic lodge, a haven for those seeking to get away from the frenetic pace of city life.

If it is quietude and comfort you seek, Seven Bends Lodge should be your destination. The lodge has two bedrooms and a sleeping loft, accommodations comfortable for seven guests.

The bedroom on the main floor is adjacent to the bathroom and has a double bed. The upstairs bedroom has two twin beds and the loft has a twin bed and a double bed. We have enough blankets to keep you warm, but ask that you provide your own sheets and pillows.

The full kitchen is equipped with a full-size refrigerator, a stove with oven. We also provide a coffee pot, toaster oven, pots and pans, cutlery and china. Sorry, there's no dishwasher. A grill on the deck overlooking the river is available for use, but guests are asked to bring their own charcoal. The dining table seats 6 and the kitchen counter provides additional seating. A picnic table on the deck seats 8.

The bathroom is equipped with a shower, but no tub. Please bring your own soap and towels.

The lodge is equipped with a heat pump, which provides both heating and cooling. Also, the wood-burning stove can heat the entire house. You may want to pick up a bundle of firewood on your way, or you can gather some along the river. The air conditioner is designed to cool the first floor only.

Guests at Seven Bends Lodge can make themselves at home and prepare their own food or can find many dining options nearby. From gourmet to fast-food, guests can find a surprising choice of restaurants within 15 minutes' drive.

For great steaks and good seafood, the best choice is Joe's Steakhouse on South Main Street in Woodstock. Joe's offers excellent food, good salads, a full wine menu and cocktails in a comfortable setting with linen service.

You will not find better Italian than is served at Sal's Italian Bistro in Edinburg, four miles south on U.S. 11. Generous portions and real Italian cooking with fresh ingredients has built a regular clientele at this restaurant overlooking scenic Stony Creek.

Though there is not much night life in Woodstock, you can find the Spring House Tavern downtown. The restaurant is known for ribs and the beer is always cold.

Woodstock boasts all the fast food franchises, located on Route 42 at I-81. McDonald's, Wendy's, Arby's, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken are located adjacent to one another.

If it's Mexican you crave, Las Trancas is located at the intersection of Reservoir Road and U.S. 11 in the Shenandoah Square Shopping Center.

If you are in need of spirits, the Virginia ABC store is located at the Shenandoah Square Shopping Center and now offers extended evening and weekend hours. The best selection of wines can be found at Woodstock Cafe & Shoppes on Main Street, also a good choice for lunch or to sip a glass of wine at a sidewalk umbrella table.

Food Lion and Wal-Mart are full-service grocery stores.

The nearest convenience store is Handy Mart, north on Route 11, less than 1/4 mile, from Woodstock. They have fishing worms, beer, ice and most anything else you might need in a hurry.

During the summer months, the river offers lots of fun. The lodge is directly on the water and, at nine feet of depth here, the Shenandoah offers excellent swimming and fishing right out the back door or you might want to relax in one of our inner tubes. If you are looking for exercise, you can canoe or kayak as far as two miles upstream. There is plenty to do on the water!

For games and sports, two parks are nearby. The Town of Woodstock Park, 4 miles drive, has public tennis and basketball courts and a swimming pool with lifeguards, which is excellent for very small children. North on Route 11 is the Shenandoah County Park, which has softball fields and picnic areas. The county park is a great place for the dog to run.

Two public golf courses are within driving distance, both 20 miles away. Both Bryce Resort in Basye, 18 holes and The Shenvalee in New Market, 27 holes offer championship golf at very reasonable rates. Call ahead for tee times.

The Shenandoah Valley is known around the world for its beautiful fall foliage. You will not find fall color more dramatic anywhere, we promise. Whether you want to relax with a book and enjoy the sounds of nature or get a workout on the mountain, Fall and Spring are popular in the Shenandoah.

For hikers, the Massanutten Mountain is straight above the lodge. For some of the most spectacular views in Virginia, hike or drive the hairpin curves to the top of the mountain and climb the Woodstock Tower. On a clear Fall or Spring day, you can see for 30 miles! If you still have the energy, hike the trails along the top of the mountain before heading for the comforts of home, just a mile below.

If you are looking to get away, really away, the lodge is extremely secluded in the winter. Whether you are snuggling by the fire on a romantic getaway or just escaping the phones, we offer our lowest rates during the winter months.

Skiers destined for Bryce Resort in Basye, 25 miles south and west, looking for a place a little closer to town can use the lodge for a fraction of the cost of staying at the resort.

Beautiful setting, steep stairs

  • 3 of 5
The setting on the river is gorgeous. Home has the basics. Compelled to write this, only to advise folks of the very narrow tread, steep steps to the second floor. Not good for seniors or small children, would be easy to take a tumble.

AC on the first floor is very effective.. does not get to the loft, so very HOT during the day. However, with fans in the windows and using the attic vent fan, the 2nd floor did cool enough for comfortable sleeping by 11ish. It was around 90 degrees both days we stayed.

Rest, relaxation and the simple life in a gorgeous location : priceless!

  • 5 of 5
Looking for a place to spend a few days leading the simple life off the beaten track? This is the place for you! Just spent the July 4 weekend in this rustic cottage away from my professional humdrum life in Washington DC. The location is just lovely on the edge of the river - beautiful, peaceful and quiet. A good lunch, coffee and comp wifi can be found in the Woodstock Café in the heart of town which is just a few minutes drive away. The owner lives close by and is very helpful but not intrusive. Found it very hard to leave to return to my "real life" in DC! Already planning to return in the Fall to enjoy another season on the river.

Great Escape with endless possibilities!

  • 5 of 5
This river lodge reminded me of a rental I stayed in at the beach once with similar rustic charm. The A-fram lodge was very tidy and the owner was accessible, offering several great suggestions for things to do in town and in the area. I have recommended this place to several friends and relatives. There is air conditioning for extreme summer temperatures and a woodstove for cooler fall temperatures, cozy bedroom downstairs and an upstairs loft area and bedroom with multiple sleep accommodations. Perfect for family or singles. The close proximity to the waterfront allows for easy access to aquatic activities. The river behind the house is the deepest, widest part of the Shenandoah North Fork so it resembles a lake. The property is located at the base of the mountain perfect for my early morning hike to the lookout tower at the top of the mountain. I spotted 2 bald eagles flying by on that rare occasion and the views from the tower were like flying in an airplane allowing me to have an aerial view of several bends of the Shenandoah river below - the breathtaking view alone was well worth the hike! Another really fun thing to do right on the premises at night was to build a bon fire in the stone and dirt pit near the creek next to the lodge. We roasted marshmallows and told tales as the sound of crickets provided us with background nature music to this magical evening! My friends fell in love with the solitude and our imaginations ran wild of this being an ideal place for creative activities such as writing or hosting art lessons, painting or craft parties, weddings or family reunions, the possibilities were endless! A classic place to escape and reunite with nature became the description we all agreed that city dwellers like us desired to make our own summer or fall traditional annual mecca! We also enjoyed going to the summer music festival and listening to some classic musicians entertain under the stars near Bryce Mountain. There were so many fun things to do nearby like visiting local vineyards or wineries, quaint shops, golfing for the boys and the summertime valley league college baseball events, that we decided we would have to make more frequent visits to cover all that this Shenandoah county part of the valley has to offer. You will fall in love with it too! Highly recommend this place!!!

Wonderful country retreat

  • 5 of 5
I spent the weekend at this river lodge in Woodstock along with four high school friends. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable and the atmosphere quiet and peaceful. We hiked to the top of Massanutten Mountain -- a good workout, but well worth it when we saw the views of the valley from above. The lodge is close to the river, which was dreamily quiet and beautiful. We took a short cruise on the river our first night, which started off our trip on just the right note. The owners live close by and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. They know the area well and pointed out restaurants, shopping and even music events that were within close proximity.

Given that it is in the countryside and near a river, you will need bug spray at night. I've spent loads of summers in Virginia, West Virginia, California and Maine and that's par for the course. The trade-off is that the night sounds of insects and wildlife create a beautiful lullaby that most city folks never hear. The dawn chorus was a welcome awakening after all those workdays waking up to a radio clock alarm.

The lodge is homey, ideally located and comfortable. It's not a Laura Ashley B & B, but rather more like the kinds of lodges many of us grew up with -- a little more funky than flamboyant. Still, the kitchen and bath were clean and well maintained. It's a great place to let your hair down and tune your inner rhythms back to nature.

Great house - great location and very affordable

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I had a reunion of high school friends at Seven Bends Lodge and we had a great weekend in this secluded, clean and quiet lodge. It is also less than 100 feet from a quiet bend in the river for those that want a swim.

It was easy to find and since we brought most of our food and drink, we didn't need much, except to catch up.

The owner, who lives nearby, couldn't have been more helpful in giving us directions to places in town as well as to the fire tower we walked to one afternoon.

I would definitely recommend this lodge and location for a get-away and plan to return myself this summer or fall!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I recently spent a weekend at this river lodge and had a fantastic time. The location was great for rest and relaxation. It is close to the old Town of Woodstock where there are lots of unique shops. You can find things there that you can't find anywhere else. Fishing, Hiking and canoeing are close by. This is a great place for family gatherings. There is a large backyard that looks over the river. I found it very clean inside and extremely cozy. I recommend this place for anyone who wants to get away from busy city life.
