Once you get here you won't want to leave the Knotty Pine...maybe it's from exhaustion because you just had fun canoeing, hiking, fishing, golfing, or had some other outdoor adventure, or maybe you don't want to leave until you etch the peaceful moments in your mind as you are relaxing in the Knotty Pine's outdoor six-person hot tub viewing the stars and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This three bedroom cottage with two full baths can accommodate six people comfortably, & up to eight people using the new futon. Dine inside or outside: There is a fully equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, and dining area, two couches (one a futon) in the living area with a woodstove insert in the fireplace. This is a great place to get cozy on cold nights, or on nice summer evenings sit outside on the large deck, cook on the grill, have a fire in the fire pit and listen to the sounds of nature and the Shenandoah River running, if the water's not low. Bring your IPod or MP3, & great sound w/ Bose SoundDock.
Enjoying the Shenandoah River....: A canoe and four tubes are available for you to play with in the river, in the summer. The Shenandoah River Outfitters is just 1 mile from the cottage, if you need a shuttle for the canoe, or need to rent more canoes. Walk out the door of the Knotty Pine & you can hike the George Washington National Forest. It's a short 10 minute walk down hill to the river, or drive, plenty of free parking. Walk for more than a mile along the river on George Washington National Forest property from #8 to #9, stop & fish, or just sit & listen to the sounds of the river. Enjoy all this area has to offer, but also relax and do nothing at the Knotty Pine Cottage.
Exploring Luray.....: Just 10 miles from the Knotty Pine to Luray Caverns, Luray Airport, & Caverns Country Club Resort Golf Course, (there are many other Golf courses in the area too.) Luray Zoo has exotic animals & a petting zoo which is a favorite with children. Stop by the Art Warehouse in Luray. Visit Shenandoah National Park & drive Skyline drive. Hike in the park to see waterfalls & wildlife. Appalachian Advantures offers ATV's & Jet Ski's rentals, guided fishing trips, hunts & more. Fort Valley Stables offer guided trail rides, & is only a 20 minute drive from the Knotty Pine. Sheandoah Speedway is a 30 min. drive, but worth it for the racing fans in your family! There are endless activities offered in Luray: concerts, art shows, etc..check the Visitors Guide and/or with the Chamber of Commerce, of which I am a member.
Luray is the Cabin Capital of Virgina: I had a wood sign at my home 'The Knotty Pine' before I ever considered renting it out as a vacation rental. I started renting 'The Knotty Pine Cottage' to guests before Page County became the Cabin Capital of Virginia. I think somehow this was all in the cards....I love the Shenandoah River, the Mountains & enjoy helping others have a great experience when they come to the Luray area; by sharing my home & providing them with a comfortable & fun place to stay! Welcome to the KNOTTY PINE & LURAY, VIGINIA!
