About the property

One mile of riverfront, that backs up to the George Washington National Forest

This Charming "Springhouse" has a mile of Shenandoah Riverfront and is situated on a 200-acre farm, backing up to the George Washington National Forest. This one-bedroom house also has a queen pull-out sofa. Whether you are looking for solitude, kayaking, canoeing, tubing, or fly fishing on the beautiful Shenandoah, you will find it at this wonderful get-away. There is a shared pavilion on the riverbank and are four kayaks, a pedal boat and one canoe for guests to use. Or, perhaps, you had rather relax on the deck and admire the spectacular views, ending your day with a cookout on the grill.

There are also many miles of hiking trails on the farm and in the National Forest, where you can enjoy the stunning views.

There are Wineries, Breweries, Golf and Antiquing in nearby towns. It's only a one-hour drive to Washington, D.C. Enjoy other historic sites such as Gettysburg, Luray Caverns, Charlottesville, and Monticello. All are an easy day's trip. The Historic Triangle of Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown is approximately a three-hour drive. There are also two ski resorts fairly close - Masasnutten is about 55 minutes away and Bryce can be accessed in 35 minutes. Kayak tours on the river are also available.

You will find whatever you would like for a wonderful get-away at this property.

Warm, Welcoming Retreat on Shenandoah River With Stunning Views
average rating of 4.7 based on 10 reviews

Relaxing, cute little house on river- amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Swimming, cooking, using kayaks and canoes on the property, nearby hikes. Only downsides (and possibly upsides) were rural location far from grocery shopping, slow Wi-Fi and no DVD players. Responsive and attentive host.

It's great, if the hidden property 10ft away isn't also booked.

  • 2 of 5

Let me begin by stating that the property is great, and the host is nice... however, the pictures here and posts are intentionally deceptive and misleading. There is a larger house cropped out of all the pictures just 10ft away, which wouldn't be much of an issue, except that is also for rent and all the outside amenities are shared, including the kayaks, pavilion and the single access point to the river. So if you wanted to get away from it all, and not have to share with anyone else, this is not the place for you. You can't even get in the river by yourself if the other rental is booked and they are already there. If you don't mind sharing your seclusion, then this is a nice place.

A few other tid-bits. There is only a single entrance to the place, which crosses a very scary low-lying concrete bridge with no sides. It's sturdy, but fairly creepy to cross. Also, the spring-house was clean overall, though there were little things like cobwebs everywhere.

A gem as always!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd stay at the Springhouse was as enjoyable as the 1st (even though we had chilly weather both times!). The property was perfectly in order, clean and organized. Beautiful views of the surrounding property add to the property's ambience. We just hope the weather is warm enough next time to take a stroll down to the river!

The owners are so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for a cozy stay in the country, including thoughtfully making sure we could reset the internet components if needed.

We couldn't ask for a more relaxing and convenient spot to stay when exploring and visiting friends in the Shenandoah Valley.

Thank you for sharing the Springhouse with us!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at the Springhouse, a truly lovely property in a most serene setting. The property is centrally located, just a few miles off I-81. Everything in the house was in perfect order. Kathleen's directions, restaurant suggestions, and other information about the property were all spot on. We are looking forward to a return visit very soon!

Lovely weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Spring House. It looked exactly like the pictures and was clean and fully stocked. (FYI, as there is no picture of the bathroom on here, that was clean and cute as well, with a shower stall/no tub.) We opted to do cooking on the grill and in the kitchen and everything we needed was there, including bakeware, salt/pepper, aluminum foil, etc. The house itself was adorable. The deck was gorgeous and the view of the mountain was too. We used the kayaks, built a fire, said hi to the horses, and walked around the grounds, and we could have just stayed there the whole weekend. But the property is also not too far from the George Washington National Forest, Shenandoah River State Park, and Luray, so we checked out sights off the property as well. We also bought some steaks at the meat market (delish) and checked out a few wineries nearby.

Also, major above-and-beyond points to Kathleen and to Leon (a long-time friend of the farm) because we accidentally drained our car battery and she asked him to come out and jump our car, which he and his wife did with total graciousness. We had a great time and I'd definitely recommend going there!
