About Wayne & Wendy Lewandowski

We started coming to Massanutten before our kids were born in the early 90s. Realizing how convenient and the various activities offered here we continued to vacation here for 15 years. We have spent several holidays and our two boys first skiing trips at Massanutten. We have spent time hiking in the Shenandoah mountains and kayaking the river. We have and continue to build wonderful memories here.

Finally the opportunity presented itself to buy property, and build our retirement home. We have spent a lot of time in selecting the design, furnishings and appointments of Cliffhanger. There is no question you will find our home to be different because this is not a rental property to us, but a home that we use constantly and also rent on occasion.

We are confident that you will enjoy our home as we do, and our previous guests!

Best New Years Ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Cliffhanger over New Years, and had one of the best New Years weekends ever! It was plenty big enough for our multi-family vacation! Obviously the skiing was awesome. But we absolutely loved our time in the home as well. Having an upstairs family room, and a downstairs family room allowed the kids and parents to both have space when needed, and come together when we wanted. The huge kitchen table was great for our big family dinners, and the bedrooms were so comfortable and spacious! The upstairs loft was bonus space for anyone who wanted to escape for a little! We also enjoyed some nice hiking, and just loved the tranquility and view from high up the mountain. Memories were made that will last a lifetime! I highly recommend The Cliffhanger as a vacation destination!!!

Great customer service, and fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

We used Cliffhanger for a small executive retreat and found the house to be perfect. All attendees enjoyed the accommodations and were surprised to see the home so well appointed. Layout was great for the 10 of us and provided ample room to spread out and enjoy a couple days on the mountain!

Enjoyed the use of the HDTVs, wifi, nice grill, and well appointed kitchen (including a new Keurig).

The owners were easy to deal with and clear with their instructions on payment, accessing the home and checkout. It's pretty clear they take pride in what they are offering and are certainly take meticulous care in the maintenance of the home, furnishings, and appointments.

Amazing home for families!

  • 5 of 5

This home not only offers any amenity you would need, but the layout is perfect for families or large groups.

The large picture windows and high ceilings let you take advantage of the beautiful views. There are tv's in each bedroom, fooseball, a hot tub, grill and a nice updated kitchen. Clean, comfortable home with owners that are available to answer questions ASAP. If you are traveling in the winter season, I would recommend a car that is capable of navigating a tight turn on a steep incline to reach the house.

Family Fun at Cliffhanger (August 2015)

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Cliffhanger. The pictures really do the home justice. The owners thought of EVERYTHING! There was more than enough of anything we needed for our family of 13. The owners were available and immediately responsive when we noticed a problem with the hot tub. Every aspect of the home is comfortable, yet luxurious; intimate, yet spacious. The options for activities in the surrounding area were varied and so much fun, and sitting on one of the XL decks was relaxing at ant time of day. We would definitely choose to rent this home again.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!
