Owner purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner chose Front Royal
About us. My sister, my husband and I looked and looked for a mountain retreat to call our very own. After months of not finding exactly what we wanted, we decided to build our own from scratch. Our cabin demands- We wanted a beautiful mountain view! We did not want to hear any traffic or see any city lights. We wanted 2 master suites. We didn’t want to be scared out of our wits driving to get there. (We can tell you, there are a lot of crazy, steep roads leading to some of the houses in the area) What started out as a “cabin” quickly turned into a full blown house. Bluebird Hill - Named for our parents because of their love / hate relationship with bluebirds. They had a bluebird box complete with said bird outside of their bedroom for years. It wasn’t until my dad passed away that a bluebird started pecking at my mom’s window. Obnoxiously! It’s a common behavior, but my mother insisted that my dad had come back just to irritate her. Our mom has since passed away, but we wanted to always remember. So that’s how we came up with the place and the name. We proceeded to put up a couple of bluebird houses, and what do you know? We had one move in a couple of years ago! Hi Dad! (Stay away from the cabin windows, please) After years of enjoying our cabin with family and friends, we have made the decision to share our home with others. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. Welcome to Bluebird Hill.

Wonderful family retreat in the Shenandoahs
Our family just stayed here in mid-late July. The Bluebird Hill Cabin was spacious, clean, and extremely well kept. It's perched on top of a hill with an amazing view of the surrounding mountains and night sky. Our family enjoyed the many spaces, including the living room with massive windows looking out onto the mountains, the deck (there's even a screened in section), kitchen, basement (bar, ping pong table, air hockey table, and couch/TV area with very comfy carpet), and fire pit area outside. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and we all enjoyed being able to spread out and enjoy the home. We also greatly appreciated that this home was pet-friendly - which allowed us to bring our dog and bearded dragon along.
The home is just about 10-15 minutes from the entrance to Skyline Drive near Front Royal. For those of us who wanted to go hiking or ziplining (with Virginia Canopy Tour), those were very easy to get to. For those who wanted to just relax and enjoy various activities at home, that was a wonderful option as well.
The owners were very responsive, and even proactively reached out when they detected that the internet connection had gone down.
Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!
The house was even better than the pictures show. We really enjoyed this house.
Piece of heaven
I can't say enough about this beautiful cabin, the view is breathtaking from the moment you walk in. You truly feel like you are at home. Thank you for having us we hope to return again.
Beautiful and Well-Appointed
We loved the Bluebird Hill cabin. The owners have done a great job at thinking of the little details. The home is beautifully decorated and situated with a lovely view. The large picture windows with the mountain view allow for comfortable summer viewing if it's just too hot and sticky outside (and we saw fireworks on the 4th right outside the window . It was raining, and we stayed dry), and the deck is perfect for the cooler mornings and evenings. We spotted many colorful birds....a woodpecker, cardinals, goldfinches, a blue jay, and a bluebird to name a few.
The beds were clean and comfortable and everything was spotless. My oldest son slept in the 3rd floor bedroom, and appreciated the window a/c unit as it would have been too hot without it, and he enjoyed having a level of the house to himself. My younger two children loved the basement bedroom as it led out to the game floor. We enjoyed lots of games of ping pong and air hockey, and if we would have been at the cabin more (and not been exhausted from days of hiking and kayaking), we would have had lots of board game options to choose from.
The kitchen is well-appointed and user-friendly. We truly enjoyed the home and our time there. The area around the cabin is very quiet and peaceful, and sometimes we spotted deer. The only minor negative is the pot-holed road back to the cabin. For kicks we timed it, and it took us an average of seven minutes to get to the better road. We appreciated the owners' honesty about the road though, so no surprises there. It just made getting in and out a bit less friendly. We'd stay again however!
Great house with fantastic views
This was an excellent place to stay during our vacation! The house was beautiful, and the location was fantastic! Ann was easy to get in touch with and very professional and helpful through the entire process. We would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in the area!
Lovely Cabin! Awesome Views.
We had a great time at this fully equipped cabin with top notch amenities. Loved the view out of the amazing windows in living area, kitchen was gorgeous. We were very comfortable at this home and it is definitely a 5 star. Skyline Drive and Shenandoah River nearby. We ate mostly at home as I loved the kitchen so much. But their was a TROPICAL Smoothie Cafe nearby which is one of our favorite places when vacationing. Our 3 papillons loved the area and trails nearby as well. Thank you for allowing our doggies too! Hope to return some day! Awesome trip.
