10/10 would recommend.

It's hard to put in words how amazing this place is!

Stayed at Crimora Mine Retreat for 2 nights during the winter and had an amazing time.

The cabin had everything we needed and Megan was very sweet to meet us to give us the lay of the land and was very responsive to any questions after she left.

It being winter, I was worried we weren't going to have many things to do, but I was wrong. We played a lot of pool, danced, did a little fishing, and of course ate a lot of s'mores.

I definitely want to return in the future!

Hard not to have a great time in such a beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

I found this place online and took our family of 9 for Labor Day. We stayed two nights that weren't nearly long enough. There is so much here to do that the time ran out on us before we could get to it all. Already talking about making this our annual getaway. See you next year CMR!!

The best house we have ever booked through HomeAway!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family just had the most wonderful week at the Crimora Mine Retreat! We have been booking vacation homes through HomeAway for over 10 years and this was the best! Spotlessly clean, spacious, and beautiful. The kitchen was great and fully stocked with anything and everything you could possibly need. The beds were so comfortable. There were plenty of linens and towels. It was brutally hot and humid the week we were there, but the AC was so good and cooled the house to very comfortable temperature which was a relief from the outdoors, plus there were ceiling fans. All those fireplaces would probably be so good in the winter, too bad we didn't get to use them. Enough TVs for everyone to watch whatever they wanted. So many places to sit and relax. The basement with the pool table and the bar was a great place to hang out and play games. The hot tob was amazing! We loved the lakeside pavilion and the lake and the boats. We rented the golf cart for a day and it was fun to explore the property. We had to pull ourselves out of this house each day to tour the area and do some hikes in the Shenandoah, as we could have easily just stayed in the house the entire week. There was one complaint this entire week - and that was the WiFi. Even though there is WiFi, it doesn't really work and those of us that had to be tethered to our work slightly, needed to rely upon our mobile hotspot for connectivity. However, if you go for a true vacation (highly recommended!), then this last "complaint" shouldn't bother you a bit. It is the most ideal place to unwind from the world and relax. We can't wait to return!!!

Great Place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. We had the whole family for 5 days. All our family enjoyed the house and especially the lake. The boats were fun and the fishing was good. The house was comfortable and the kitchen and dining areas were great for a large group. We highly recommend this vacation house.
