Front Royal Cabin Rental Photos and Description

(2) Queen-size beds / (1) bath

Our 9 cabins are located near Front Royal, Virginia, the Canoe Capital of Virginia and where Skyline Drive begins...

Only 10 miles from downtown Front Royal and 10 miles off Interstate I-66 – and just 60 miles directly west of Washington, DC.

Hot Tub Heaven, open year round, offers (2) Queen-size beds / (1) bath. We’re dog friendly and are situated only minutes away from the Appalachian Trail, our community lake, Deer Lake, and our local mountain winery, Fox Meadow Vineyard... with dozens of other wineries all within 20 minutes of the cabins. Our cabin is a fully-equipped home with its own wonderful hot tub.

We're located only minutes from Shenandoah National Park, Shenandoah River State Park and the start of Skyline Drive. Each season of the year has its own charm and attractions: canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, antiquing, golfing and fishing. We look forward to accommodating you on a special mountain vacation!

Front Royal, VA - The Canoe Capital of Virginia: Warren County is known as the Canoe Capital of Virginia, thanks in part to the 39 miles of scenic waterways better known as the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River that meet just west of the town of Front Royal, and the main river that continues toward Clarke County, northward.

The North and South forks of the river meet at Riverton, west of Front Royal, where it heads north to Clarke County, and ultimately, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where it meets the Potomac River. In Warren County the river offers calm waters for a leisurely canoe ride and rapids ideal for kayaking. Boating, rafting and tubing also are popular.

Skyline Drive / Shenandoah National Park: Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah National Park bring more visitors to Warren County than any other attraction. The park and drive extend 105 miles over mountain tops from Afton in the south to Front Royal in the north, and parallel a 95-mile portion of the Appalachian Trail. The park draws more than 2 million visitors a year; about 500,000 of them enter at the Front Royal entrance on US 340, about a quarter-mile south of the town.

The 195,000-acre park combines protected mountain land with trails and beautiful views. The park's trails, varying from short walks to 12-hour hikes, intersect with waterfalls, streams, old home sites and scenic vistas. Wildflowers, more than 205 species of birds, white-tailed deer and black bear abound.

Admission to the park is $10 per car and $5 for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists. An annual park pass is available for $20.

Fishing the Shenandoah River : Fishing: The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is one of the nation's best for smallmouth and largemouth bass, rockbass, redbreast sunfish, bluegill, muskellunge and channel catfish. The North Fork, meanwhile, offers anglers smallmouth bass and redbreast sunfish, and the mainstream offers all species except muskellunge.

State residents age 16 and over are required to obtain a fishing license before fishing on inland waters. Nonresidents over age 12 need a license. All persons needing a license also need to purchase a National Forest stamp when fishing in waters within the boundary of the Washington and Jefferson National Forest, except on the North and South forks of the Shenandoah River. Licenses are sold at authorized agents located throughout the county, but not at the county clerk's office.

Why Tom Lally chose Shenandoah Valley

We love this area and opened Hot Tub Heaven on Blue Mountain because the Shenandoah National Park is the number one reason people from around the world visit our area. Guests will also enjoy visiting Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River State Park, State Arboretum of Virginia and right at the top of our mountain - a short distance from any cabin - is the Appalachian Trail!

Trail hiking is popular year round, as is bird and wildlife watching!

Hot Tub Heaven is in the heart of Virginia Wine country! Explore dozens of wineries within 30 minutes of the Chalet! Including our mountain winery, Fox Meadow. Wineries like Fox Meadow, Rappahannock Cellars, Naked Mountain and several others are open 7-days a week. On weekends, the possibilities are limitless.

Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns are also must sees and short drive from Hot Tub Heaven. Guests should also consider day trips to places like New Market and America's Celebration on Parade, Shenandoah Caverns (the only cavern in the valley with an elevator), the Natural Bridge, Monticello, Walton's Mountain, Montpellier, Manassas Battlefield and even Washington, DC.

Since the Shenandoah Valley is where a large share of the Civil War Battles occurred, there are several driving tours, such as the Battles of Front Royal, Cedar Creek, Fishers Hill, New Market, and Winchester, Kernstown, Rappahannock County and Harper's Ferry.

The Walking tours of Front Royal, Winchester, Luray are excellent ways to experience the various rich histories amid a relaxed do it at your own pace atmosphere.

Driving scenic roads (such as Fort Valley Road) and exploring small towns like Syria, Little Washington, Sperryville, Shenandoah, Rileyville, and a million other such towns and hamlets in the Valley.

Visits to Belle Grove Plantation, (540) 869-2028 or Long Branch Estate (888) 558-5567 or the Virginia Arboretum (540) 837-1758 are always recommended.

Antiquing and shopping are always fun and in abdance in our area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our entire family, including our two Labs had a wonderful and relaxing week. The Chalet is charming and inviting and well stocked with everything we needed. We all loved the hot tub!!! We had terrific weather and Shenandoah Valley is simply MAGNIFICENT! This is our favorite area to come to and we all voted "YES" to returning to Hot Tub Heaven #3. Thanks for all the little extras. It is really a lovely place.

Still wishing I never even left

  • 5 of 5

The location was just so nice and secluded, a real trip in to nature for me. I enjoyed being surrounded by the woods. Those nice cool nights on the deck with nothing but tiki's. I wish I could just buy this cabin for myself ;) i guess since I can't i'll just have to recommend it to everyone. You won't want to leave and when you do leave you will be anxious to come back

  • 5 of 5

I just loved it every minute of my stay, it is just breathe taking. I live in the city so for me to escape the city life and get away to enjoy some nature was just as I needed. I am sure happy we did. I will be coming back again!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Took my wife and kids here on a surprise getaway and it was the best idea I've ever had. There was an activity for everyone in my family right in the area. It was more than we even expected from the listing and it was like our home away from home. The cabin was fully stocked and had everything we wanted and needed right on site. My wife loved how clean it was and how it was decorated and the kids and I loved being submersed completely in nature. We can't wait to return there as soon as possible.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I came here with a friend of mine and stayed in Cabin #3, we were surely not disappointed. The inside of the cabin was unlike anywhere I've ever stayed before, it was so nicely decorated and quirky, exactly my style. It was so nice to get away and breathe the fresh air, go on hikes, drink wine from local wineries and do a little shopping as well. The whole cabin is surrounded by a bright green natural backdrop and every room had a breathtaking view. The hot tub was probably the best part of the trip, I've never felt for relaxed in my life. I absolutely can't wait to return with my family.

This place is wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here at Hot Tub Heaven. The place is wonderful - well-stocked, clean and very well set up. It is nice to have the big TV. We almost made it through the 3rd Season of House of Cards. The hot tub was a pleasure - only missed one day due to rain. We did a daily hike down to the mountain lake with the dogs, and one day on Skyline Drive where we saw white-tail deer and hawks. Spent a little time in Front Royal - nice lunch at J's Gourmet on South Royal Avenue (across from the bookstore) where there is also a local wine shop, upstairs a tiny restaurant that looked interesting call Apt. 26. We'd have tried it if we had more time. Thank you! We'll be back!!!

Every amenity has been so carefully thought out! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

From the first to last moment we were here we were completely charmed by Hot Tub Heaven. Being a lover of bright colors and having continually traveled for 18 months in 'beige' hotels, my fancies were tickled to get to sleep in a blue bedroom with lovely hand painted stools and groovy lighting. Every amenity has been so carefully thought out from the beautiful forest view, to the hot tub, the great deck, excellent grill, outdoor deck, to the lovely open living room, the huge TV to the completely stocked kitchen &&&&&&&&&&… we loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!
