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.

Beautiful setting and restful stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is set in a gorgeous valley on the Shenandoah river. We spent time in the kayaks and canoe, grilled dinner each night, and spent time at the local wineries. A lovely setting and Kathleen was very communicative. Great getaway.

What a wonderful rental. We had a very relaxing four night stay at the Spring House. It was all it was advertised to be and more.

Peaceful and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here on my wedding weekend and it was wonderful. If you're looking for a place that you can relax and enjoy beautiful scenery this is it. Kathleen was a joy to work with and I'd highly recommend renting from her.

Thank you for the lovely stay!

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We thank you for your review and are so happy you thought the property was great and that the host was kind. We apologize your expectation was not met in the other regards. We have mentioned to our cleaning staff the details you suggested. To our prospective patrons, we invite you to look at the photos provided to view the accommodations and surroundings, or view the satellite imagery in the map section to see the full grounds and entryway. Also check out our Overview section which gives a description of the shared riverfront amenity, which we have always found to be a joyous and secluded experience considering the property's spaciousness. We strive for our guests' experience, thank you again for your comments. We hope that you will return!
