Overview

Shenandoah Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin - 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed - 1 Bath - (Sleeps up to 5)

Secluded along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains we have the ideal vacation getaway. This unspoiled paradise is perfect for a romantic rendezvous or a family retreat. With 10+ acres there is plenty of space to soak up the crisp, clean mountain air and enjoy the great outdoors. Walk, hike, or visit the nearby creek. Catch a glimpse of wildlife roaming the area. Play outside on the large front lawn and fire up the BBQ grill for a picnic on the covered patio. At the end of your day, watch the sunset from the porch swing, curl up by the gas fireplace or roast marshmellows around the campfire area. The cabin is located just outside Luray in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, minutes from Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns. Open year round.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome

About Erik

Fox Den Cabin is a family run vacation rental in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Our entire family was born and raised in Luray, Virginia. We take pride in providing you with a great vacation experience and a clean, cozy place to call home whenever you visit the Shenandoah Valley.

Erik purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has a rustic feel, but is just modern enough to provide you with all the amenities of home. The property is bordered by rock walls dating back to the late 1800's. Years of hard work was put into rebuilding the walls as you see them today.

Close to Shenandoah Park

  • 4 of 5

We used the cabin as a base of operation for three days of hiking in Shenandoah National Park. It is a great location - 10 minute drive to the entrance, 25 minutes to Skyland. The cabin is cozy – two small bedrooms, single bathroom (with tub), full kitchen, and a living room. Plenty of room for a family of four. We enjoyed the large front porch that overlooks the 2 acre front lawn - large, flat area for playing sports. There was no sports equipment at the house, so bring your own balls, nets, and bats. The neighboring houses were over a 100 yards away, so really did not see/hear them. The kitchen came with the basics including full size frig, electric stove, microwave, pots, pans, and dishes. The kitchen did not have a dishwasher or slow cooker.

I would not recommend this cabin to anyone I know!!

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is beautiful, but there is no water pressure at all. If my fiance turned on the water in the kitchen, then the water completely turned off in the shower. The toilet is so low to the floor that you could crawl off of it. The sink is too low to the floor. There is no cell phone signal at all. I have a special needs child and could not communicate with anyone all weekend because my phone would not work. There is a phone at the cabin, but you can only make local calls. The master suite bed is as hard as a rock. I had to take pain medication to function after sleeping in it. I would not recommend this cabin to anyone I know.

Owner's Response: We welcome feedback on how to improve our property for future guests and strive to make the cabin a great experience, however it's not possible to please everyone. The sink and toilet are standard height. Standard height toilets are easier for children to use. We would be reluctant to change to something taller because of this. We do not advertise that we are ADA compliant. If you have special needs it is best to check with us to make sure the property will be suitable for you before placing a reservation. The water is on a well and filter system. It is not set up to use two or three fixtures at the same time without experiencing some pressure loss. This has never been a concern with previous guests. Currently the phone at the cabin is for local and emergency calls, however we will be offering unlimited long distance starting June 2016 in response to requests for this. The main bedroom mattress tends to be firmer than the mattress in the secondary bedroom. Finding beds that suit everyone’s needs and comfort level is hard to do. We have had good luck with the mattresses we currently use, however we will look into replacing them if this continues to be a concern.

Fox Den was peaceful, beautiful & immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

We were relaxed the moment we stepped on the porch of this beautiful cabin. Although we visited sights in Luray, we could easily have stayed in the cabin and had just as good a time. Little touches like the foxes and the candles throughout the house make it quite homey. Go there! We will certainly go back!

Beautiful cabin, no info for local info

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and clean. With the full moon this weekend it was a beautiful sight. There is no wifi or cell service at the cabin there is a phone for local calls. There was no info for local places to eat or see many of the information pamphlets were out of date or for other parts of the state. We researched places to go before coming down but were not sure of their locations and were consistently pulling over after we had cell crevice for the gps.

The outside porch was wonderful but there are a lot of wasps nests and bee hives around the porch. At night there are no lights on the porch to play games.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the comments about the cottage being neat and clean. We keep it that way for each and every guest. Reliable cell phone coverage and high speed internet is not available due to the secluded location near Shenandoah National Park. We hope that in the future this will change so we can offer better service. The pamphlets at the cabin have been left by previous guests. We try to leave as much information at the cottage as possible, however since everyone has different preferences we do not recommend one restaurant over another unless we are specifically asked for that advice. It would be impossible for us to provide directions on how to get to each attraction someone might want to visit. There are lights at each door and one ceiling light on the front porch. Overhead lights are limited in other areas. We look forward to improving the lighting in the near future should this continue to be an issue with our guests. We spray for bees and insects several times a year and no guest has complained of them or been stung during their stay. We believe the guest leaving this review saw mud masons. They look like wasps but are non-aggressive. We normally take down any type of nest when we clean, however they can appear in a day or two during your stay with us. For that reason, we keep a can of insect repellent and bee spray on the side porch for our guests convenience. We can assure you if there was a serious bee problem we would have already taken care of it! Coming to our vacation cottage is an outdoor adventure. Being in the woods around nature is all part of the experience.
