Luray Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Turn off your computer, set down your smartphone. Reconnect with nature and loved ones in the Shenandoah River Valley at The River House.

Enjoy your morning coffee watching wildlife on the river. Listen to the flow of water and the breeze in the trees. The Massanutten mountain range is in the distance, plan a hike. The river is at your feet, go kayaking. The hammock is strung between the trees, hang out and read a book.

The firepit is ready and waiting to toast marshmallows. The moon reflects on the river. The locusts sing their song. Sit back and relax. Enjoy the cool, crisp fall evenings gathered with your friends/family around the warmth of the fire.

Everything is here, at The River House, to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Come! We'd love to share our little piece of the river with you.

We are 2 hours west of Washington DC in Luray Virginia.

About Anne

Anne Ulrich - I live in northern Virginia with my 2 daughters.

Anne purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Anne chose Shenandoah Valley

We bought this property so we could spend time here and share it too! Our kids are growing up fast and we realized the need to show them more than the suburban environment they live in. Luray has so much to offer: Luray Caverns, hiking, tubing, kayak/canoeing, mountain biking, campfires, Skyline Drive, not to mention all the stars! It's truly a great way to reconnect with your family and yourself.

What makes this cabin unique

There is not one home on the rental market in Luray that has better river views than we do. Our house is 30 feet from the river's edge. Step out the door and you are there!

Perfect Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location for a weekend away...nothing fancy, but comfortable, clean and well-equipped. I couldn't ask for a better place to hang out with family than on the screened porch overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah River. We did some kayaking (provided!), tubing (provided!) and enjoyed a campfire by the river. So private and just a special place! Thank you, Anne, you are very gracious. Hope to return soon!

Zen

  • 5 of 5

I'm a paranoid/hyper big-city girl. I'm afraid I don't do nature very well. But at the same time, I desperately needed some peace and solitude. I certainly found it at River House.

A beautiful location, and a very well maintained property. In rentals of this type it's difficult to achieve a balance between rustic and convenient, and this property actually does.

The location is quite remote, and some of the road (not much) leading to it could be called challenging, but it's fine (I drive a Prius and had no issues).

You are actually ON the Shenandoah River. It's not exactly deepwater, but that allows for lots of water activities. The River House is on a good chunk of land, so there is plenty of privacy.

The house itself is significantly larger than it appears. The living room is huge and very comfortable - the furniture seems to have changed a touch from the picture, and now the LR has an enormous sofa and 2 oversized loveseats (sofas, really - they're only loveseats compared to the sofa).

Three bedrooms; while I can't exactly say they're huge, they are certainly comfortable and very well-appointed.

Enormous kitchen with everything you may need, a separate dining room.

And a screened-in porch with a table and benches - my favorite spot, where I speant about 80% of my time here.

There's a hottub, too.

Wonderful outside accommodations - a grill, a large picnic table, a bench right on the river, firepit, and a cement dock (called "The Dome", as I found out) that offers a spectacular view up and down the river.

A separate note on the owner - who wins innumerable accolades for being incredibly gracious woth all my questions and fussing (of which there were a LOT - as I mentioned, I'm a big-city girl, this was new to me).

The house was immaculately clean.

Bugs. I hate bugs. I was very concerned about potential bugs. And there were hardly any. A spider maybe, a few unidentified flying things that minded their own business, and literally 1 mosquito in 4 days. Which is nothing, considering the location on the water.

Perfect for bird-watching, and you'll see quite a bit of pretty fat squirrels.

I honestly can't say enough good things about the property and property owner. Can't wait to come back!

Rested and Relaxed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the River House. We had some planned activities but enjoyed it by the river so much we sat and read in the peace and quiet! Much needed R&R. The house was perfect everything you need is provided! We didnt miss cable TV but was greatful for internet and the 1 little cell phone line (verizon) was good to at least recieve and send text. Anne was wonderful to work with! We will be coming back!

My family of 5 loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Anne was fantastic to work with. We tubed, kayaked, s'mored, grilled and had an all around good time at the cabin and in the river. We also hiked in Shenendoah NP and saw bears both days. My family highly recommends this place. It's not high luxury, it's just right. Thanks, Anne!

Incredible location, perfectly equipped, supremely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Terrific experience top to bottom. We enjoyed our first stay so much we came back with our adult children a month later. Everyone enjoyed the experience, especially fishing off the back lawn and fire pit -- we spent the majority of our time outside, even with rain. Highly recommend a canoe outing, it was very relaxing. The other unexpected fun we had was a trip through Luray Caverns - while we did this when the kids were small, going through the caverns with grown children was so enjoyable in that we weren't chasing anyone this time around. Highly recommend this rental.

Perfect River Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin met all of our requirements; clean, comfortable, excellent river access, fire pit, hot tub, privacy, and a very pleasant and helpful owner. We could not have been more pleased. We will definitely return.
