Dear Hensley Family,
Thank you so much for renting your beautiful cabin to our family. Our children absolutely loved every minute staying there and were quite sad to leave. The warmth of your cabin , the decor , the outdoor amenities like the fire pit and wrap around porch , along with the perfect setting along the Shenandoah River made for a magical and relaxing family vacation.We could see all of the thought and details that went into your home ; it is perfect for a family retreat and everything we needed. It was also a nice addition that there were children toys and movies available for down times.
We were able to visit the beautiful Shenandoah Caverns and accompanying family friendly museums as well as eat a delicious lunch at the stunning historic Mimslyn Inn , all was fantastic ! Everywhere we went everyone had great hospitality and K
kindness. The mountains and scenery in the Shenandoah area are breathtaking and something everyone should experience.
Thank you again for opening your cabin to us. We had a wonderful time ; our children are already asking when we can return to Papa Bear's River Cabin ! ( They loved the stuffed Papa Bear and Baby Bear in the cabin as well as all the bears throughout your decor ! )

Papa Bears river cabin is a bucolic dream in the Virginia countryside. Beautifully landscaped right on the Shenandoah river. Completely private, yet close to Luray and Skyline drive. This is our second vacation here and we love this place! The house is perfectly appointed,super clean and instantly feels like...home. My boyfriend is an avid fisherman and caught 30 bass in 3 days! After a full day of hiking we just love pulling into the long driveway and seeing our cabin. It truly is a warm,welcoming respite. The Hensleys are a delight and are eager to answer any questions or concerns and do so promptly. I feel they truly enjoy sharing their little slice of heaven with all of us. We will return, yet again.
Stayed for a weekend in late summer. Beautiful property with very responsive owners. Plenty of room in the primary bedrooms, and has a well-equipped kitchen. The only improvement we could suggest is adding a window-air conditioner in the upstairs bedroom, as it gets a bit warm, even with the AC set at 70 degrees. We would definitely stay here again!
Our family had a wonderful week at Papa Bears! The cabin is wonderfully maintained, steps to the Shenandoah River and has a great deck and hot tub! The owners were wonderful & easy to work with! Could have had a more peaceful and blessed week with my family!
We stayed for a few days of relaxation and had a lovely time! The cabin is cozy, but plenty of room for a family of 6 (including 4 kids ages 5-11). They loved opening and closing the gate and having a campfire in the fire pit, plus all the bear decor! Close to Luray and Shenandoah, plus the basic things we needed like groceries. Cabin was very clean and well-equipped with everything we needed. Thanks for a great stay!
A group of friends and I got together to celebrate my 28th birthday at this cabin. It was absolutely perfect. The cabin is nice and clean, the hot tub was wonderful, and the view is breath-taking. We went to masanutten resort on Saturday to go snow-tubing, but unfortunately they were all booked. Word of advice: reserve your time online prior to going there. We all loved it so much that we are planning to come back during the summer!
This is our second time staying at Papa Bear's cabin and we would stay there again. The location is a perfect balance of quiet and accessible to all the essentials, including Shenandoah National Park. The house is clean and in great condition and we liked how it was decorated for Christmas. The gas fireplace is not only nice to look at, but it will warm the house up in a hurry, especially the upstairs area. The outdoor seating is nice and there is plenty of space for fishing along the river. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking even a full Christmas dinner, as we did, though it's a good idea to bring your own seasonings, of course. If you've forgotten something, there is a Food Lion that's only about 15 minutes away. In terms of what one would normally expect from a vacation home, I can't say that anything was missing and many nice extras were there. The only drawback to our stay was that the mattresses on the beds were surprisingly loud, making it hard for everyone in my family to get a good night's sleep. Even while in the downstairs bedroom, I could hear people upstairs getting in and out of bed in the middle of the night. In all, we enjoyed our stay very much and it made for a special Christmas vacation. Thank you!
Located in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Ideal location for couple's anniversary, honeymoon, quick getaway, family vacation or retreat.
