I own the 1850's Massanutten Springs (log cabin) -restored it and now is a weekend rental... I got started in this business because I was taking care of my mother and needed additional help - although mom (Charlotte Good Kibler) passed away before completion she would be proud I know. As a single mother I just want to provide for my daughter and her future, which is why I decided to purchase the Rock Tavern property when the opportunity presented itself - my late father Aaron P Kibler would be proud to see the Rock Tavern back in the family - Uncle Abe was his brother. I believe 'Horses can Soothe your Soul' - if you visit Massanutten Springs website under horse tales - you will see a few of ours! If you have never ridden, take a trail ride- you will love it, if you have your own horses- you already know...RIDE OFTEN! With portable fencing we can be horse friendly at both properties. Best Regards, Annette K. Cates
I am now the proud owner of the 1947 Rock Tavern Retreat as my late Uncle Abe and late Aunt Lizzie owned, built and tended bar in the original stone tavern for years. ATK & 1947 is still in the stone walls and I am grateful to have the opportunity to get this property back in the family and we ( my daughter jade and I) look forward to sharing with our guests the awesome history of the Rock Tavern.
The 1947 Rock Tavern Retreat offers plenty of space for reconnecting with friends and family, a couples retreat indeed. The master bedroom suite offers an infared modular fireplace along with jacuzzi in master bath, has a private deck entrance and a fabulous view of the beautiful Shenandoah River. The theatre style leather recliners forces you to relax! The original stone shows thru in several rooms and just accents this cabin like no other...it is quite unique!
