Overview

About the property

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

Hot Tub Heaven Cabin #3 is 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 abundance 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.

Like living in a tree house

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is way up the mountain - very quiet, secluded and private. The interior is basic, has all you need for a weekend stay. The hot tub is lovely for an evening soak after a hike. We didn't use the kitchen much--there are nice places to eat out in Front Royal and other towns nearby. It''s a good 30 minutes into town so plan accordingly. Lots of wineries nearby and the Shenandoah River Park is great. Good location for enjoying the outdoors and what the valley has to offer.

What a great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin #3 felt super comfy from the moment we walked in the door. Definitely felt like a home away from home. All the special touches made it so fun - the gorgeous fireplace, the zen den and the hot tub, the TV and wifi. It was so close to everything, the lake, Front Royal, Skyline Drive, and the wineries. The owners are a delight and so accommodating. Everything about this place is warm and welcoming.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great Cabin, had everything we could have asked for. Throw in a 10 minute walk to the Appalachian Trail and to Deer Lake and this place was perfect. Can't wait to get back

Clean and extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a cabin for two nights in May this year. Such a beautiful location with views of spectacular sunsets. Our cabin was fully equipped and extremely comfortable. Our toddler had so much fun running around and exploring the grounds and loved the swing and chickens.

We will definitely be staying here again!

Thank you.

Weary travelers find rest

  • 3 of 5

Finding the house/cabin in total dark after 1 hour of wandering the heavy wooded gravel roads, we finally turned on the GPS and amazingly we were there! GPS worked after getting of I-66. Strongly recommend GPS's use within neighborhood 'cause there are multiple inside routes.

The cabin itself ... similar to a two star hotel.... furnishings have seen better days,

but oh my,

the view of the woods from the loft and deck, finding oldie 33 vinyl records which we danced to, hot tub, large deck for morning coffee, washer and dryer usage (thank you!), and fenced yard for dog.
