People describe the cabins, like a tree house above the river.

A large deck overlooking the river leads into a living room, with a flat screen t.v.

The loft area is a great hangout for the kids, I have even had adults say how much they enjoyed camping out in the loft.

Then you have the small.but adequate kitchen.

Bathroom to the right, with a shower and sink.

Then you are in the large Queen bedroom with a fireplace, and romantically decorated.

Outside you have a picnic table,grill and a nice fire pit. camp chairs are provided.

A nice concrete patio is where you will find a 6-person hot tub, with waterfall colored lights and jets.

For fun on the property, there are horse shoe pits and a volley ball net.

Over 1 mile of private river trails.

Cute Cabin and Great Water Access

  • 5 of 5

We found this cabin and its location to be just perfect for our needs. We wanted to spend time fishing and floating in the river and letting our dog swim. The river is easily accessible. We appreciate that you are pet friendly. I contacted Lisa a couple of times and she was very responsive and helpful. The cabin is nicely decorated with a rustic cabin charm. Everything is fairly new and clean. We will be back!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for somewhere to stay with friends who were visiting from the UK. This was just wonderful. It has everything you might need. We used the canoe to paddle down the river, we cooked and ate on the barbecue outside and then to top off a wonderful day - we watched the stars from the hot tub. Just perfect.

Good but not great

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was good as far as having everything we needed. However, if you end up there during rainy days when you cannot grill outside, you will be out of luck with cooking your own food. The kitchen is pretty much non-existent.

I liked the riverfront location and thought that we were getting off to a good start only to be awaken in early morning by trucks, school bus, and cars speeding down the small road that runs right past the cabins to the main road. I was instantly stressed out and knew there was no way that this can be relaxing. If you are looking for a quiet, serene, and secluded location, this is not for you. I will not be renting this place again.

Owner's Response: To clarify, our cabin is in a rural farm setting, and we do have people going to work in the morning and a school bus twice a day. The rest of the time you may see a tractor or 4-wheeler piloted by agriculturalists engaged in usual farming activities. With regard to the kitchen, you will find a stove-top range, a sink, a microwave oven, a refrigerator, a toaster, and a 12-cup coffee maker. However, there is no oven. We advertise our location and amenities honestly. We never advertise the cabins as "secluded" because there are more than one cabin on our 7.5 acre piece of property. VRBO has all this listed -- what the cabins are and what they are not. I wonder if before you rented this cabin you actually read the description of our amenities online. Our cabin is everything we say: great location in a rural setting, beautiful views of the river, birds, and wildlife abound. Thank you, Lisa

Above all expectations

  • 5 of 5

was looking for a great place for my wife and I to get away for her birthday. The pictures did no justice to how beautiful and peaceful the place really is. We sat out at the firepit for hours. Extremely cozy and quiet, but conveniently located close to everything. We will definitely be returning. This place is perfect.

Sweet getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I did a last minute trip to the Gander Cabin in Luray. We took our two small dogs and they had as much fun as we did. The house was very clean, fun and quaint. It snowed, even though we were on Spring Break, but we still sat outside and enjoyed the sound of the babbling river. We had a fire outside and enjoyed the hot tub and indoor gas fireplace. The house is so close to town and is easy to run in for shopping or food. We look forward to visiting again with kayaks to enjoy the Gander Island and the river.

Awesome Vacation - Great location - Fun times

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Goose cabin for 2 nights in mid-March. It is one of our favorite vacation spots. The cabin was extremely clean and accurately described. The location was great - you felt like you were in the country but you're close to grocery stores and downtown Luray. The hot tub, fire pit, and river were great - very relaxing.

We will most certainly be back for another stay this summer - we're looking forward to tubing!
