About Ryan or Barbara

We are a family of nine, with seven children age 18 and under.

Ryan or Barbara purchased this house in 2007

Why Ryan or Barbara chose Shenandoah Valley

While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and used the home for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. We now live in Idaho but still vacation often at Massanutten Resort as it remains one of the family's favorite vacation spots. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added two additional Massanutten homes to our inventory, including The View at Massanutten, and rented to more than 630 families. We hope you will enjoy The View at Massanutten as much as our other guests have.

What makes this house unique

The View at Massanutten is one of the best homes that we own at Massanutten Resort. Aptly named, The View provides some of the best views of the ski hills on the mountain. The View is the perfect home to accommodate family gatherings, both large and small. As with our other homes, The View is exceptionally well appointed and because of its new construction, is in pristine condition. The View is stocked with activities, such as foosball, movies, an arcade game, kids toys, and books. The View is also uniquely situated at the top of the mountain, right in the middle of all of the activities. It backs up to the George Washington National Forest and is perfect for enjoying your getaway vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The exterior pictures do not do this home much justice. It is simply gorgeous and it was too much house for us. We take a family trip together every year and vowed not to repeat any sites. My family seems perfectly willing to break that vow. LOL.

Not 6 bedrooms, not new, poorly maintained

  • 1 of 5

After much discussion, we have decided to leave an honest review of this rental house. Unfortunately, the owner has communicated to us that he will not be refunding our security deposit because of our review and he threatened to sue us as well. Despite these threats, we felt that it was important that others are aware our experience. When we arrived at the house, we were surprised to learn that the "6th bedroom" in the house is actually a sliding door that divides one of the rooms into two areas. On one side of the divider are two sets of bunk beds with a king set on the other side. Because we had multiple couples and children, this created some challenges with our room planning.Plus, the doors were broken, so the divided room concept didn’t work. We just want others to know for their planning purposes.

Some of the previous reviews note various cleanliness issues, and we found that this was true for us. The place was dirty when we arrived. On the first night, we saw a mouse run across the kitchen floor and noticed mouse droppings (small black mouse pellets) in many places throughout the house, including bedroom, kitchen and living room floors, in and on the sofa, and in bathrooms. Additionally, some mouse droppings were found on cooking utensils, dishware, pots, and pans. We would leave during the day and come back to new mouse pellets on the kitchen counter and kitchen table. We have young kids and planned to have most meals in the house so this was troubling. We also found that towels were limited, and the ones available did not appear to be clean, as they smelled like they had not been washed. The place did not appear to have been maintained, including the patio furniture which was in disrepair. There were multiple light bulbs out, and some of the cookware was not usable because of its condition (broken or damaged). We found holes in walls as well.

We attempted to communicate these problems to the owner after the weekend. He offered to pay us $250 to avoid leaving a review, which we thoughtfully declined. We felt that it was important to communicate our experience, despite his offer. When we communicated this to him, he became irate and threatened to sue us for slander. We are a thoughtful, professional, and responsible group, and felt that it was important not to be intimidated by this owner. We will return next year to the area, but not this rental

Owner's Response: Over the last 14 years, I have tried hard to have a positive experience for every renter in any of my homes--either during the rental or afterwards. This one stands out as a sole example to the contrary. The bottom line is there was apparently a mouse in the home (for just the second time in 10 years). We try hard to prevent that from happening and do pest control twice a year, but it is a mountain home which is part of the allure here. Our 24/7 onsite manager offered to come up and address the issue but the renters refused. What is particularly frustrating is how this renter responded. After the rental, he posted an even more negative review that he admitted was fabricated. He at least had the good sense to remove that review, even though I take serious issue with many of the facts as stated in this review as well. For example, his security deposit was fully refunded so that part is just not accurate at all. Given what he related as his experience, I offered him half of his rental night as a refund. He demanded a full refund, which I did not think was warranted given our attempt to accommodate him and the fact that he remained in the home. We have rarely needed to offer a refund of any kind, but a mouse in the home is an unfortunate experience. I guess some guests will never be satisfied and have a different sense of fairness. I have tried multiple times to follow up with this guest to attempt to make anything right, if that is possible. All to no avail. This home is 9 years old, as the listing notes. It is one of the newer homes at Massanutten and we keep the home updated. The sixth bedroom is a separate bedroom separated by a pocket door from one of the king master suites. Most guests love that convenience for sleeping kids separately, but near them. That pocket door can slide off track but is very easy to put back on the track. If there are any issues, our 24/7 property manager can easily handle that issue. There are also three king master suites and two queen beds for adults plus sleeping for an additional four people in the common areas. We also have a closet with plenty of additional lightbulbs, linens and towels for use if there are any concerns at the home. Plus, our manager will address any of those concerns if any guest will allow it.

None of the issues that Christina referred to have been fixed. The furniture is still broken and dirty...the floors were sticky with dirt. Many towels and bed sheets had NOT been cleaned from previous renters. The house has plenty of room....but the house keeping issues continued to be a nightmare. The house itself needs major maintenance.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. I spoke to Joy about her concerns. She did not rent the home from me and acknowledged that others in the group loved the home and she just had her own issues with the home. We are sorry that any renter would have a less than ideal experience at the home as we strive to make the experience exceptional for all renters.

Lots of room, but needs a little TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Great open floor plan. Plenty of room for a large group. However, many upkeep issues. Couch and bar stool were broken and dirty. Bunk Bed was missing a corner peg and a ladder, and was unstable. Pocket doors to kids bedroom were non-functional. BBQ grill was small and had a bent grate. Refrigerator had broken shelves. Dishwasher had a broken top rack. There were broken mini-blinds. Multiple drywall holes in several rooms. Loose railing post on top balcony. Loose wooden step off the back deck. Many light bulbs out or non-functional. Shower curtain was dirty. Carpets were dirty. Microwave was dirty. We were expecting the conditions to be a little nicer for the amount we paid.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback about the home. We try to keep ahead of maintenance issues and during the busy summer season that can sometimes be hard to do. We aim to exceed expectations and regret that we were not able to do so in this particular case. We have done our twice-annual deep cleaning of the home and repaired the issues mentioned in this post. We have upgraded the grill and appliances within the home and have replaced carpet and laid some hardwood flooring in the home for a better layout and cleaner experience at the home. We have had numerous positive comments from guests about the home during the fall and winter rental season.

Fun Resort and Great Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved all of the activities at the resort for the kids, including the indoor waterpark which really was a lot of fun. The weather was great and we were able to do some easy hikes just along the ridge. And we fished in the pond just a couple houses down from this home. We enjoyed the home. It was a great base to enjoy all that the resort and the area had to offer. We had no problems at all, easy checkin and checkout. Three days was not long enough, so we hope to come back again.

Great mountain house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. The views are worth the stay. It really takes advantage of the mountain views and makes for a great getaway. There is plenty of space. We liked having three king beds which provided more comfort for each couple. It is a gem.
