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.

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.

Great owner, property, and location!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Erik (the owner) was so accommodating to our needs and questions. Really went above and beyond to help me organize our weekend trip!

The cabin is so wonderful! Easy to find, easy access to food markets, gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, but you still feel like you are in a private secluded area. Very quiet and relaxing. Upon our arrival we heard charming singing bells far off in the distance, right before sunset and that was just magical! The front porch is huge, with a delightful swing to enjoy your morning coffee while you gaze over the well maintained front yard! The side porch provides a charcoal and gas BBQ pit and large picnic table. There is a nice size stone fire pit behind the cabin! Our dogs loved running all over and fetching on the huge grassed yard!

Inside, the cabin has brand new upgraded wood flooring in the living room, with brand new sofa and reclining love seats to enjoy the view from the huge picture window overlooking the front lawn. Our favorite feature was the record player with the fantastic selection of vinyl country classics. We played some great classics while BBQing outside, or getting ready in the morning! The kitchen was well stocked!

The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water and clean towels and linens. The cabin is heated by baseboard heating, which has individual controls for the living spaces, which was nice, and a wonderful gas fireplace in the living room for added toasty warmth for the evening! The entire cabin was superbly clean, and lots of useful travel and sight seeing information.

Location was great for all the entertainment the National Parks had to offer, and every single local we met was so friendly. We hiked the White Oak Run Trail, which had multiple waterfalls, great riverside places to relax, and breathtaking views! I have to say this little cabin was just the perfect get away for us and our dogs! Thank you Erik!

Small house in a far back area,few neighbors, and the power lines made a nice cut into the woods.

  • 5 of 5

Over all, we had a marvelous time. The house was all set up and very clean. Plenty of wood by the fire pit and everything we could have imagined needing. It was fantastic. We are already thinking about booking again! Highly recommend.

Beautiful, tranquil setting - clean and nicely maintained

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this cabin! The area is secluded and beautiful, and the cabin is clean and well maintained. No musty smell like you frequently find in these rental places. The location is gorgeous - quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back and have already referred friends to this wonderful place.

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 strive to make the cabin a great vacation experience. This particular guest had concerns with accessibility that should have been addressed with us prior to placing a reservation. The sink and toilet are standard height, it's not necessary to crawl off of them. Standard height toilets are easier for children to use. We would be reluctant to change to something taller since we only have one bathroom available. The cabin has well water on a filter system. The water pressure is normally good. While this guest was staying one of the filters had got clogged and needed changing. We could have easily fixed the issue had the guest taken time to contact us during their stay. We have upgraded our phone service and now offer unlimited long distance for our guests convenience. The main bedroom mattress tends to be slightly firmer than the mattress in the secondary bedroom, neither of them are rated firm as this guest implies. We've had good luck with the mattresses we currently use, however we will replace them should this continue to be a concern. We always welcome guests feedback on how to improve our rental.

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!
