About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

DURING THE WINTER .... WALK TO THE SKI SLOPES!! You'll never have to walk along a main resort road. Simply walk to the end of our road, walk across a short foot bridge & through the snow-tubing parking lot and past the tubing ticket office, follow the asphalt path to lift #3 -- It's THAT easy! Because of our close location to the ski slopes, within TRUE walking distance location, our home tends to book quickly**

** Location, location, location! ** There's NO need to struggle with parking lot traffic ... NO need to load your ski & snowboard equipment in/out of your car in the parking lot! There's also no need to wait in long food lines or find a open table at the ski lodge - SAVE MONEY when you walk home for your meals.

Our Massanutten home received a ten-month renovation which includes a new HVAC system, 80-gallon water heater, new flooring throughout the entire home, complete kitchen renovation with new appliances, renovated bathrooms (new jetted, soaking tub in the upstairs bathroom), a full-size washer and dryer, and skylights installed in the vaulted, living room ceiling. To add one more to the list, we've purchased a U-shaped, Klausner sectional sofa that seats up to 10 people comfortably!

There is a 42" FLAT panel TV in the living room & each bedroom has either a Flat Panel or regular 20' - 35' TV. A BONUS FOR THE KIDS --- we also provide a Game Cube system with games!! For the adults -- poker cards/chips & board games. We also provide numerous Comcast cable TV channels including ESPN, along with a NetFlix capable DVD player and a movie library of 40+ movies that are suitable for families (at no charge).

***Our home is only one of a limited amount of rental homes located within TRUE walking distance of the SKI SLOPES, WINTER/SUMMER TUBING PARK, the ZIP LINE course, the OWNER'S POOL and ice-cream shop, frisbee golf and mountain biking on the ski slopes, the EuroBungee attraction, mini-golf courses, trout-stocked pond, the go-cart track, the skate park, Golf course @ LeClub. A short 3-5 minute drive will bring you to the resort's new INDOOR/OUTDOOR water park, horseback riding stables and the resort's on-site outfitter where you can spend a day river tubing, canoeing or kayaking!

For insurance purposes, we require all guests to sign a hard copy of our rental agreement, which will be emailed to you. This is the same rental agreement that you will sign via e-signature through the online reservations system.

WE HAVE MANY REPEAT RENTAL GUESTS .. Will you be one of them too?

You can enjoy morning coffee on a large, wraparound deck while watching the deer graze in the backyard and the birds visit the birdfeeders. Our birds visitors include finch, sparrows, nuthatch, titmouse, cardinals, bluejays and a variety of woodpeckers!

*SHORT-TERM leases are considered during the Fall months (Late August through - mid December) & the Spring months (early March - early May).**

About The Owner

We have owned our Massanutten Resort home since 2004 and have a long list of rental guests who return to us each year!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose McGaheysville

We specifically wanted a vacation home that we could walk to/home from the ski slopes. There are NOT many private homes with this TRUE, walk-to-the-slopes location.

What makes this house unique

SAVE MONEY by being able to walk back 'home' instead of standing in long lines and buying expensive ski lodge food!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a wonderful stay at your property and we had a great time while we were there. The house was clean and very nicely organized. The location of it was perfect for us. We would definitely consider staying at the property again in the future.

Nice clean place! Great location to slopes and recreation area!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here from July 1st - 5th. The house was very neat and clean and just a short walk to the slopes, fireworks, mini golf, go carts, and other activities.

Nice Amenities

  • 4 of 5

Great house, close to slopes (though we chose to drive), linens provided, fully equipped kitchen, homey atmosphere. Owner was very accommodating, no surprises.

We had a great time. We would rent this house again.

Great location and accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute plans to go to Massanutten and Janet was very responsive. The house was comfortable for our group of 5 and well outfitted with everything we needed. The location was great for walking to the ski tubing park, the ski lodge, go-karts, and miniature golf.

Great place for a family get away

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a long week end with our daughter and her husband and three boys. The location was convenient, everything was clean and the kitchen was fine. Hiking, miniature golf, shuffle board, and swimming were all close by.

Our one big problem was that the downstairs bed was very soft. The upstairs one was as well but not as bad. I only tried sleeping on it one night. After that I had back pain for the rest of our time there and ended up in the Emergency Room when I returned home. I didn't do anything else that could have caused it. I have never had a back problem like that but according to the ER doctor it can happen just from sleeping on a bad bed.

We also had to kill at least twenty flies when we arrived. We were glad that they had bug spray but a check of the house ahead of time would have prevented that problem. Another help would be instructions on how to work the heat; it was on an automatic program that didn't seem to operate properly. The owner was very willing to be helpful when we called but we still couldn't get it properly adjusted.

Once these problems are corrected it will be a very pleasant, quiet, peaceful place to be.

Owner's Response: I am honestly shocked to hear a review that categorized our mattresses as too soft. Not only do I have 2 herniated disks in my neck and back issues (I've been in dentistry for 25+ years) and our 22 year old son had major spinal surgery at University of Pennsylvania in 2016; we both sleep on these mattresses without incident while at our Massanutten home. Additionally, I have never had anyone complain about the mattresses. Again, I am shocked to hear that a guest was met with 20 flies upon check-in. Our cleaning lady was just there 3 days prior to your check in. Since our home is surrounded by many trees, we have an exterminating service that treats our home for carpenter ants, hence the can of bug spray (the same can has been in our kitchen for over a year). We were just at our home this weekend, after the house being empty for 7 days, and didn't see an issue with flies. That being said, we were having a problem with our WiFi thermostat and couldn't reconnect remotely in order to fully assist you. Your husband was very pleasant during the conversation. I'm happy to say that the problem is now corrected after discovering a failure with the router. The WiFi thermostat is back online.

Awesome Home But stairs can be tricky.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Janet for working with us at the last minute. Massanutten is a beautiful place to stay. We all enjoyed our stay. We all loved the comfy couch. We had plenty of room for the 3 of us. The Stairs were the most difficult thing for us leading up to the house. I arrived late at night and there was NO light on and no lights up the trail to the house. There are Solar lights but they weren't on the night of arrival. I got what I had to have out of my car and waited till the next morning to unpack. The deck on the house was great for our family who loves the outdoors. We spent more time outside on it than we did inside :) We got to see Deer, Fox, Squriels, possum, and more. We loved being able to watch them frolic around the house. There is a steep driveway and small parking area. It was good enough for two small cars, but very thankful I didn't bring my van :) There were plenty of pots and pans, kitchen counters, games, and more. Was great to be able to fix meals rather than eating out every night. All in all it was a great stay & we didn't want to leave.

There are a few things we all thought would be nice to improve on:

1. A Ceiling fan in each of the bedrooms. It gets hot up stairs and even though there were fans provided a ceiling fan would help a lot as well.

2. The house is in need of a fresh coat of paint. There were a lot of areas where I know they are improving but a lot of areas need a fresh coat.

3. The Bathrooms are TINY, especially for us "Bigger people". My dad (the smallest one of us) could barely fit in the downstairs shower. The upstairs bath/tub/shower combo needs a mat or something so it is not so slippery. There are no had rails and it is a very high tub. Me being short (5') made it hard getting into and out of.

4. There is water damage and mold on the outside of the house. I see they have been changing out the windows and the new ones look great. It would be nice to add screens so that people can open them and enjoy the cool weather of fall.

5. We know it is Fall season but the leaves were thick and hard to get through my 1st night up, was a little afraid of what might be under the leaves just because I could not see until I got into the house and got lights on.

6. The entrance into the house is a double patio door. Very nice but needs blinds or privacy curtain. I didn't realize how much I was exposed until I walked out the next morning in my gown and saw that the neighbors that live next door could see into the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback; we did enjoy having you stay in our home. We will check the bulbs in our walkway lighting. -When you mentioned your father having some health conditions at the time of your reservation request, I did specifically state that we have approximately 12 steps from our parking area to the walkway of our home (you assured me it wouldn't be an issue). I feel that we are very forthcoming when renting to families with older folks, because we want people to be happy. -Additionally, our parking area was recently expanded to 24 feet wide - we park our 2 SUVs, side by side, without issue. The standard width for parking spaces in the U.S. is 9' wide; I do feel there is more than ample room for 2 SUVs. -During the Fall Foliage, it is very difficult to keep leaves from resting on our steps. Since our home is located among many trees, leaves in our mountain regions accumulate quickly, even after clearing them away. -Since our main bathroom measures 8 long by 6 feet wide, I wouldn't consider this a tiny bathroom. Had I known that you needed a bathroom with a large dimension I would have gladly let you know that our home wouldn't be a good fit. -And yes, you are correct in observing that we are constantly updating our home with new furniture, windows, decking, gas grill, etc. However, there are also projects that are currently being planned.
