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.

Wonderful again!

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay at the Springhouse was just as enjoyable as our first two. It’s cozy, comfortable, and convenient to all the Shenandoah Valley has to offer. The views are so relaxing—and we were lucky enough to catch the end of this fall’s beautiful colors! Already looking forward to our next visit!

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little house for two people to get away from all the hustle and bustle. 2 hours scenic drive from DC, next to the Shenandoah River North Fork. If your idea of excitement is to see a couple of deer and a buzzard over the weekend, this is your place. Relaxation pure. Wineries and a great brewery pub close by. Our favorites are North Mountain, Muse and Woodstock Brewery. And there is a fantastic butcher close by for all those meat lovers. Owner Kathleen and housekeeper Penny are very responsive and helpful. This was our second time here and we are coming back.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience it was very nice to have lines and towels provided for us it definitely was the most comfortable bed we have stayed in at a rental house. It was nice also to have a full kitchen. There is a big house right next door but that didn’t bother us at all there were numerous kayaks and 2 fire pits where you can put your kayak in was very nice I was able to stand in the water comfortabley with my toddler it was overall a great stay!

Very quiet and peaceful. Walked down to the river and to the picnic area but sadly didn't have tim.

  • 4 of 5

What a nice place. Once we found our way in, which was not difficult, we knew what things to watch for each day as we left and came back. We knew where the deer came to eat and slowed down and opened our windows to get the full effect of the country air. Didn't have time to enjoy the river, but the cabin is so cozy and the fireplace is so historically beautiful. Thumbs up.

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.
