Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Stylish and hip, The Nut House is located in the heart of Massanutten Resort, yet surrounded by trees and mountains offering privacy and serenity.

Offering a main level great room with floor to ceiling windows, gourmet kitchen, dining area, TV nook, and deck overlooking woods with babbling creek. The three bedrooms (linens and bath towels incl) offer the following configuration: main-level, king-bedded master (1 K) and two upstairs bedrooms (1Q and 2T).

The upper deck has seating for 6 and a Weber grill (propane provided). The lower deck features an outdoor hot tub. With views of the slopes, it's a perfect way to end a day of skiing and tubing!

Our home is very warm and inviting, with comfortable furnishings offering a classic retro mid-century modern decor. We have had a great time traveling to estate sales for authentic and whimsical pieces that continue to delight our guests. But we have not forgotten modern conveniences...wireless internet, cable flat screen TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer, air conditioning, DVD player, iHome, etc.

The kitchen boasts anything a chef could need - offering both Keurig and drip coffee makers, toaster oven, blender, ice maker, microwave, and Henckel knives. And we make it easy: house includes all the “under the kitchen sink” necessities so you do not have to pack all the boring stuff. So we keep stocked for our guests: dish soap, scrubbies/sponges, brillo pads, dishwasher detergent, dish towels, paper towels, napkins, trash bags, cleaning spray, coffee filters, tin foil, saran wrap, ziplocs, spices, cooking spray, salt/pepper, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, and laundry detergent.

We provide linens/pillows for all beds. When you arrive you will find they are all made up for you, ready to go, unlike many rental homes in the resort. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and serve meals -- just bring your food.

For summer rentals, we have purchased the Pool Guest Pass for the homeowners' outdoor pool. Not all homes offer this, so be sure to ask if this is an amenity you plan to use. Open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

One final benefit of renting from us is our 10-page "House Info Sheet." It details everything about the house, resort, restaurants, shopping, wineries, emergency information, and even where to buy the cheapest gas! Whether you have been to Massanutten or not, you will find all sorts of insider information on how to get the most out of your vacation!

Ideally located in the resort, inside the guard gates less than 5 minutes from on-site resort amenities: zipline, indoor/outdoor waterpark (biggest on the East Coast!), terrific hiking, golf courses, driving range, horseback riding, mini golf, Euro bungee house, racecars, bumper cars, playgrounds, outdoor pool, summer concerts, skateboard park, skiing, year-round tubing hill, ice skating, and more!

We are committed to providing a level of service and guest experience that is superior to any other. We have over 100 positive traveler reviews! Please read them - folks love the attention to detail and excellent customer service we provide our guests. We have set this up to be our vacation home as well as a vacation rental. We do not rely on a management company with lots of homes, instead choosing to manage it ourselves and visiting monthly (lucky us - JMU alumni with 2 kids currently enrolled!) to make sure things remain fresh and in top-notch condition. We strive to make this the best vacation house you have ever stayed in! Come enjoy our little slice of paradise at The Nut!!

About Jo at Massanutten Rental Homes

Meet your hosts Mike and Jo Pumphrey! We met at James Madison University, just a few miles from Massanutten, and fell in love with the Valley. Jo is a hospitality professional and managing our three homes on the mountain is now her full-time job. Now our son and daughter are at JMU, so we are here monthly, continuing to make this home the grooviest pad on the mtn!

Jo at Massanutten Rental Homes purchased this house in 2005

Beautiful house and setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a beautiful area. Very relaxing, just show up and enjoy. We were a group of six (2 adults and 4 teens). We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen, excellent collection of family games (we recommend Taboo with teens), hot tub, and gorgeous views out of the large windows. The teens certainly appreciated the good quality of the wifi. We went for a couple of great hikes right nearby based on Jo's recommendations and they worked out very well. Highly recommend The Nut House!

Perfect venue - lovely home, tastefully decorated

  • 5 of 5

Jo is a great host. Her house is an excellent place to enjoy a weekend with family or friends. We could not have chosen a more perfect venue. The home is lovely -- it is tastefully decorated and stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We look forward to staying at this home again in the near future.

Thankful to host a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Nut House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for a family Thanksgiving! The Nut house is nicely furnished and decorated with a retro vibe and the floor to ceiling windows make for a nice and relaxing atmosphere among the trees. We spent time hiking the Massanutten Ridgeline Trail and shopping in the nearby boutique craft/artist shops...all great recommendations from Jo! We also spent hours playing board games and cards. Would definitely return!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were fabulous to work with and the place is well kept, pristine, and is well nestled into mountain woods. Scandinavian furniture and designs inside, a well accessorized kitchen, and a very comfortable and cozy hot tub made for a perfect getaway!

Wonderful week at The Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying at the Tree House!!! The house was very comfortable for a house full of adults and so very well stocked. Jo was fantastic to work with and we had the best time hanging out with family and enjoying things on the Massanutten property. The owners make it very easy to go on vacation by providing so many of the things that take up so much room - paper towels, linens, toilet paper, etc. The round table was a hit for playing games. We had fun grass tubing, golfing, and tubing down the Shenandoah River!! Hope we get to enjoy the Tree House again!!!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. It is comfortable, beautiful, and unique. Impeccably maintained, and very guest-friendly, from the high-end linens to the well-stocked kitchen, clear wifi instructions, and binder full of information. We would stay in this home again--or in any other property owned by this family--in a heartbeat!
