***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!

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 & we are already accepting winter ski reservations**

** Location, location, location! ** Our home is located approximately 100 yards from the snow-tubing park and just beyond that are the ski slopes. 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 no need to wait in long lunch lines or find a table at the ski lodge - SAVE MONEY when you walk home for your meals.

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?

WHY pay inflated prices for a 600 sq ft hotel room at Great Wolf Lodge when you can enjoy our beautiful 3 bedroom home & Massanutten's INDOOR Water Park for LESS??

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!

CREDIT CARD payments can be accepted via PayPal. **SHORT-TERM leases are considered during the Fall months (Late August through - mid December) & the Spring months (early March - early May).**

Our home is NON-SMOKING HOME & pets are NOT allowed. 50% of Rental Rate is due at the time of reservation; balance is due 45 days prior to your reservation date & a $250 security/damage deposit is due 14 days prior to your reservation date.

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 Shenandoah Valley

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.

Very comfortable!

The house has everything you need and more! We especially loved watching movies together on the comfy couch in the evening. And there's lots to do close by. We really enjoyed our visit!

Nice summer trip

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Janet's house in Massanutten. The house was tucked away in the trees in a really nice location to enjoy the summer activities on the mountain. The house had everything we needed. We stayed 3 nights and cooked and ate almost all our meals there. We have stayed at a lot of vrbo homes and she had one of the best collections of cookware and dinnerware. We enjoyed relaxing on the massive comfortable couch. And we were happy to be able to wash our clothes after getting caught in a rainstorm while mountain biking on the other side of the mountain.

We walked to the mountain bike rental shop, putt putt golf, owner's swimming pool and disc golf. There were other activities within walking distance also like the zipline and tubing. We also did a kayak trip on the shenandoah river booked through the resort which was a lot of fun.

The house is fairly close to Harrisonburg, so we enjoyed some beers and dinner at the Capitol Ale house there and picked up some groceries at the kroger on 33 heading toward the mountain.

The main road in the resort is very busy, so it was nice to stay in a place where you didnt need to get in your car and drive to places. The downhill mountain bike park was not open yet when we were there, but we did the disc golf close by the trails and it looks like it will be awesome once it opens.

You can't beat this location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at Massanutten in Janet's home. The location is fantastic...a five minute walk to skiing and tubing, and it allowed us to come back home for lunch rather than eat overpriced meals at the lodge. The house is comfortable and well-stocked, too. We will definitely look to stay here again if we return to Massanutten.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate that our trip coincided with the Blizzard of 2016, so while the rest of the DC metro region was snowed in we enjoyed four days of skiing and snow tubing, all within walking distance of the house. We didn't move the truck all weekend, although the resort did a great job keeping the roads cleared. The owner was very nice and easy to work with, she let us check in early so we could arrive before the storm, and warned us to bring enough food for the whole weekend. The house was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for a great weekend. Our only disappointment was that the Water Park was closed due to the weather so we didn't get to go. I would highly recommend this house.
