Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible house located right next to Shenandoah National Park! Went with a group of friends and had a fantastic time. Will definitely find a reason to return. It made it so easy not having to bring anything but food to cook in the spectacular kitchen and outdoor grills (no linens, no hand soaps, no paper products, no cleaning supplies, etc.)

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc?

Yes. It was even better than described!

Was the property clean and well-maintained ?

Very clean and well-maintained!

Did the owner provide good customer service ?

Yes. Great customer service. They responded to questions within hours.

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ?

Definitely.

What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ?

Loved the foosball, pool table, lounging chairs at their private lake, fire pit, spectacular kitchen, and so much more.

Beautiful, Tranquil and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible family vacation and Crimora Mine Retreat.

Everything is as beautiful as it looks online. There is a wonderful porch swing and some gliding rocker adirondack chairs which I don't think are shown in the photos. The home is remote... quite a ways down a private gravel drive through the woods that skirts a flowered meadow filled with butterflies and the edge of one of the lakes before winding up to the house. On first arriviing, I thought perhaps I'd taken a wrong turn in the woods before we came upon the house. It's virtually hidden until you are upon it, but you'll know you've arrived when you reach the paved portion of the drive. The house was immaculate and well equipped. We found the plumbed in coffee maker incredibly convenient and enjoyed coffee on the deck overlooking the lake each morning. At the boat dock, there were 3 kayaks and a canoe and we enjoyed exploring the 3 connected ponds. There are beavers active at the lake and we were lucky enough to see one of the (surprisingly large!) beavers -- he came down the bank and swam right under one of our kayaks our first time out on the lake!

Stunning house on a gorgious piece of property

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, clean and super fun. The owners are really nice about the whole trip and were able to answer all of my questions and make the experience wonderful. We caught fish, grilled dinner, went for a hike to name a few things. Can't say enough about how nice the house is. It was everything we wanted and more. We will be booking again!

Memorable Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My group had a truly amazing time at the cabin.

Our trip was actually one-and-a-half years in the making: Last year, I planned a cabin getaway for my 30th birthday. My boyfriend and I were moving back east from Montana and wanted to do something relaxing with a good group of friends. But two weeks before our Crimora weekend, during our cross-country drive, we were hit by an intoxicated driver in the middle of the desert. I ended up in a hospital in New Mexico for a month and was then confined to a wheelchair for the next six months. Thankfully, the Edwards were kind enough to rebook us for any dates of our choosing, so that when I was finally back up my feet, my boyfriend and I could enjoy a wonderful cabin getaway with a good group of friends.

We all fell in love with this place while there and are already planning return trips! I never write reviews, but that's just how lovely this cabin is.

Man Trip

  • 5 of 5

Seven of my friends and I have been escaping to mountain cabins for five years now in an effort to maintain our friendships, seeing as we are all living in different states. Each time we have travelled to a different cabin in the mountains but after our stay at the Crimora Mine Retreat it was unanimous that we would definitely return. The cabin is spectacular as is the beautiful property it sits on. The views were outstanding no matter where you turned. The secluded property with numerous trails around the property were perfect for leisurely hikes. The lake pavilion was a great change of pace as a lot of laughs were shared at the outdoor hearth. The owner's were easy to deal with and more than accommodating. We all agreed that this was by far the best place we've stayed.

Not just because we appreciate your business and blushing comments, but your review in our guest books has STILL been cracking us up.
