lovely and charming mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

This house fit our needs perfectly. It was updated, clean, and close to Massanutten amenities such as mini golf (almost walkable) and Water Park (short drive). We would definitely stay there again! However, there were two small inconsequential issues: the driveway is not paved and it's very slanted. It was difficult to park there. Also, the upper level (where the majority of the bedrooms are) got very hot even when A/C is was on a comfortable setting for main level. But overall, we really liked the house and enjoyed the vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the house and had a great vacation. The driveway is a half circle, and sandstone gravel. It is slightly sloped from the street level down to the house and garage. There is also parking at the streetside, in front of the property. To get more cool air to the top floor, close some vents in the basement level. To get more warm air to the basement, close some vents on the upper levels. We're here for you! Just call us while you're here and we'll give you tips on how to have things run smoothly for your stay! ☺ Sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

House has great bones but...

  • 3 of 5

Booked this home for JMU graduation. Large home with plenty of living space. Driveway is precarious but I guess can't be helped with the size and drastic slope of the lot. My issues with the house; for the price, the great room furnishings are REALLY tired looking, aka old and worn. Also, one 32" TV in great room (very limited cable) and a tube TV in basement. That's it for TVs, none in the bedrooms. Not the standard for today's vacation rental properties. Also, one HVAC for entire home--3 floors--doesn't really insure all will be comfortable. The basement was cold while we were there and no way to warm it up as the gas fireplace was cut off at the end of April. Remember, one of your sleeping areas as well as one full bath is down there so there needs to be flexibility on the gas availability depending on weather. The property was clean when we arrived. Probably would not recommend to a friend based on price point, I think there are properties in the area that offer more value for money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. In response to the points you made: 1) The driveway is a gentle slope and nowhere near as sttep as many driveways in Massanutten, There is also a parking area right at the street level that will accommodate 2 or 3 cars. 2) The great room furniture is not even 2 years old, very sturdy and firm and it looks almost like new. 3) If you were expecting more TVs, TVs other than what we describe and have pictured in our listing, then we understand your comment. The listing clearly explains and shows the TVs and where in the house they are. The Comcast/Xfinity cable package is the Double Play package, with lots of channels. 4) The basement is cooler than the rest of the house because it is the basement. Heat rises, cool air sinks. Science is fun! To make the basement cooler close some vents on the upper floors. If you have the heat on this will force more heated air to the basement. If you had called our office or maintenance about this, we would have told you the solution since you didn't know it, already. 5) Fireplaces are for guest use October 1st through March 31st. We don't want guests lighting fires and cranking up the air conditioning at the same time. We've had guests do so in the past, with no regard to the home owners' utility bills. We appreciate you pointing out the house was clean. Our housekeepers work very hard to get each home clean for guest arrivals! Sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

fun ski weekend

  • 4 of 5

We(4adults, one 10 year old, one 8 year old) rented for a ski weekend. The house was neat and clean, the kitchen really fully equipped, and all exactly as described on the VRBO website. There were 4 good surprises, one quirky amenity, and 2 caveats worth noting. The surprises were the easily adjustable hot tub, the simple one switch fireplace, the massage chair that the skiers used apre ski and the kids used like a plastic horse outside Walmart, and the empty 2 car attached garage that made loading and unloading easy. The quirk was the shower in the master bath. The shower had 4 horizontal chest high nozzles (2 front, 2 back) and an overhead sprinkler. It took 2 full minutes for hot water to reach the nozzles and the overhead sprinkler water never got hotter than tepid.

The controls were complicated. The 2 caveats concern the driveway and the distance to the ski lodge. The driveway is short(25 feet?), reaches the garage at an angle, and the slope is maybe 12-15%. The driveway was part gravel, part ice and partly packed snow covered. I had asked about bringing a shovel and some sand in a phone call and was told there was deicer and a shovel in the garage. The shovel was there, not the deicer. Having mentioned this here, I suspect there will be plenty of deicer in the future since the realtor struck me as very reliable. The distance to the ski lodge is a matter of opinion. Walking through the woods, the junk yard, and the parking lot, it's a 10 minute walk going downhill to the ski lodge. Returning uphill, it's probably twice as long. Walking on the roads, it's over a mile to the ski lodge. However, by Massanutten standards, this is close.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed the house! There are many perks and extras to this house. Because our goal is your perfect vacation, we have taken care of the small number of issues you had during your stay. The far end of the semi-circle driveway goes almost straight to the garage, making it convenient for guests to unload their belongings right into the house. Our snow removal teams clear driveways and put de-icer down on the driveways so our guests can easily get in and out. Each house has a snow shovel for guests' convenience, just in case it starts snowing and they want to get out before the snow removal guys get there. The walk, on the road, to the ski lodge is under three-quarters of a mile, paved and safe. We do not suggest to guests to walk through the woods, with ski equipment, snow on the ground, etc. to get to the slopes. Where the junk yard is, is a mystery. We have never seen one in Massanutten and the resort does not know about one. We hope you will come back to stay with us! Sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

Nice house, Bad rental company

  • 2 of 5

Overall the house is nice. We did not like how close it was to the other homes in the area. Gas fireplace downstairs was great. Beds were comfortable. The hot tub was not warmed up prior to our stay. I alerted the company but it still took over 24 hours to warm up so we were not able to use it at all during our 2 night stay. Since renting a house with a hot tub was our ONLY must have, we were super disappointed by Massanutten vacation's attention to detail. If you want a hot tub that is actually hot, don't rent this house. I would recommend going with another agency as well.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you liked the house, and sorry you had a problem with the hot tub. As explained to you, if the power goes out, if there is a power surge, it can, and has, set the hot tub to a lower temperature or even turn it off. We are not made aware when the electrical power does this, and we don't have a staff member at our houses 24 hours a day to keep checking everything. Once the power is back on, and the hot tub settings are re-set to where they are supposed to be, the hot tub heats quickly. We are proud of our beautiful Peak Retreat vacation rental house and are proud of how many returning families we have in it. Sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend stay here with some friends and was very pleased with everything. We had some minor issues when we arrived but one call to maintenance and they were there quickly to fix everything and the rest of the stay was a great time. This house has a very spacious basement with air hockey, a television, and wifi which is great for getting the whole gang together for some fun. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back.
