About the property

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!

This cabin was everything we wanted experiencing the back country of Virginia coming from South Africa, a sweet treat was the bonfire outside for the cold evenings! Thank you to Erik for accommodating us last minute, your cabin was beautiful!

Wonderful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

What a great cabin...everything we needed was there! We loved the peace and quite and escape from the Internet and cell phone (didn't have to go far for service if you wanted it!) was totally enjoyable. I loved reading my book on the porch swing. My husband enjoyed the massaging recliner and fireplace...and he had all the tv he wanted. The bed was comfortable and the cabin was clean. All the cooking implements one needed were available. The location is prime...we explored Luray Caverns for the first time. The view of the stars at night was spectacular...didn't realize how much city lights impair one's "star sight"! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Our 3rd Trip to Fox Den Cabin - As usual, it was great !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to the Fox Den Cabin. This rental is very, very satisfying !!! Erik, the owner, always does a great job of maintaining the cabin and he thinks of all the things that will make your stay a pleasant one. This cabin has a great location - less than 5 minutes from the Fairview Grocery Store. My wife and I are already planning our 4th trip.
