Overview

Shenandoah Valley House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, house that sits on 5 acres bordering the national forest

Upper Rawley Cabin:

Please Read the Entire Description:

Upper Rawley Cabin is 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin/house just 9 miles west of Harrisonburg, Virginia. This cabins was our home before we started the vacation rental business, but we moved out so that we could continue to grow the business.

The master bedroom has a king size bed upstairs with an adjoining bathroom (with stand-up shower). The other bedroom upstairs has a queen size bed. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a queen size bed and one with a full size bed. The full bath on the first floor has a shower/tub. There is also a loft (with low ceilings and a small kids size door) that has two full size futon mattress in it which is perfect for kids 5 and over or adults up to the age of 25. Past 25 years old the loft is probably not as much fun. :) The house has a screen porch with seating for 4 and a queen size futon as well.

We do allow for one night stays, but there is two night minimum for weekend stays (either Friday and Saturday night or Saturday & Sunday nights).

Pets are welcome but we do require a Pet Fee when pets stay at the cabin. The cabin even has a fenced yard so you don't have to worry about your pets escaping or even walking them unless want to. Just open the door and let out knowing they won't run off.

Upper Rawley Cabin is a great place to see the stars. On clear nights, you can see thousands of stars overhead. It is a beautiful sight. Also during the spring and summer months, you can see humming birds everywhere. We place feeders off the front porch of the house and have personally seen upwards of 20 birds feeding on them at one time.

Check in time is 4:00 pm until 10 pm and checkout is 11 am. Early check-ins, before 4, or Late check-ins, after 10 pm, and late check-outs, after 11 am, require a $20 per hour fee. Please ask in advance about late check-ins.

The house can fit 12 people. However, at least 4 would need to be children.

Firewood may be purchased upon arrival.

During snow or ice or after heavy rains the roads can at times be muddy. We now have a full sized backhoe available to plow the roads though. We hope to be able to pave the road in the future. We just want our guests to know that mountain roads are not perfect by any means (they are gravel or shale), but we will make sure you can get your car up year round no matter the weather. You can always park at the parking space at the bottom if you'd like to too. There steps to access the house from both the top and the bottom parking areas. :) Because this is a real old cabin, there are things you should expect to find on occasion in an older real cabin such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs, tiny critters and the occasional stink bug during certain times of the year. Sheets, toilet paper and towels are provided. Paper towels are not.

Pets are welcome at all of our properties. If you or someone in your group is allergic to pets or anything else (detergent, air fresheners, etc), please let us know in advance so we can discuss this prior to your booking and then also prior to your arrival.

Please note that small children are not allowed in the loft due to safety issues.

No smoking in the cabin. No beer pong or Hookahs. Noise must kept to a minimum and quiet hours are 9 pm to 9 am.

All pet fee(s), early/late check-in or late check-out, firewood or extra person fees are not refundable once paid.

Guests are required to sign a rental agreement upon arrival and a photo ID. For this reason, the person who makes the reservation has to be the there at the time of check-in, unless the contract is signed and arrangements are made for someone else to check-in in advance.

Failure to show up/check in or contact owner before midnight of day of arrival will result in cancellation. Host reserves the right to rebook property if guest does NOT contact owner.

About Katie and Steven Robert Jones

We came to Virginia from Texas so I (Steven) could finish my college degree, but got into the vacation rental business by accident. :) We have 4 daughters under the age of 5. We have 6 rescue dogs, 2 rescue cats, 2 ponies, 8 goats & about 50 chickens.

We believe service is what sets us apart in the vacation rental industry. Katie & I personally own every cabin that we manage. We check-in all of our guests personally (sometimes even as late as 2 or 3 in the morning with prior approval). When you arrive, the lights will be on and you will be welcomed and shown around the cabin, unlike most other rentals where you access a lock box and walk into a dark cold house. This is all we do 24/7 and we want all of our guests to have an amazing stay. We would be honored if you would allow us the opportunity to serve you.

Why Katie and Steven Robert Jones chose Shenandoah Valley

We wanted to be in the country where our kids and pets could play without having to worry about passing cars. We fell in love with the house the first moment we saw it. It has a rustic, yet modern and updated feel at the same time. We also liked that the cabin bordered the national forest.

What makes this house unique

If you are looking to get away from the fast pace of life, then this is the perfect to relax. The cabin sits just above where the Dry River and Gum Run meet so both rivers are within walking distance from the cabin. Also, there are 3 hiking trails within walking distance of the cabin and numerous others within a very short drive of the cabin.

Nice Large House In The Forest

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable stay at this large cabin in the forest. Plenty of space for everyone. Enjoyed the screen porch and the stone patio. Nice king size bed in the master bedroom. Kids loved the loft. Would love to see the view in the wintertime. The fence area was great to be able to just let the dogs out without having to walk them late at night or early in the morning. Kitchen was well stocked. Weather was perfect and the area was beautiful too. Enjoyed walks down to the river.

Great place to enjoy with friends and family

  • 4 of 5

Loved the screened porch, patio surrounded by mountain laurel and the easy comfort of the indoor social spaces.

Owners take pride in this property and arrangements for initial entry were smooth and easy for both sides.

It's a steep gravel road the last 1/4 mile, and the road to the side of the house (to upper parking area) was not passable for two wheel drive and only a high clearance 4WD can cover those ruts (however - torrential rains had fallen in previous 24 hours).

Nearby "Blue Hole" has natural beauty, but the piles of trash spoiled that local attraction.

Nice place to getaway

Perfect Get-away Spot!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, our 3 year old, and our dog spent two nights at this adorable cabin. We especially loved the screened-in porch and the easy access to gorgeous walks through the woods. Harrisonburg is just 15 minutes away and has tons of stuff to do. Check out the co-op market for your groceries. Thank you to the owner's father-in-law who made sure we had everything we needed including firewood.

Recs: it was pretty muddy around the property so bring boots, the drive up to the cabin can be tough so 4-wheel drive is a plus, stock up on groceries, etc. before you get to the cabin so you don't have to drive back into town

Great Cabin - Excellent In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin. From the moment we walked in we felt right at home. This is the perfect place to relax and get away from all of the stresses of life and be close to nature, yet have all of the comforts of home as well such as WiFi and cable, fully stocked kitchen. The short drive to town was easy enough too. We loved the hiking trails and serenity of the rivers. The owners were fantastic and very helpful. Cannot wait to come back.

Decent House, But Drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

House is large and sleeps lots of people. Kitchen and living room are open and there is a large dining table and nice patio. Numerous drawbacks, though. Upon arrival, we were greeted by an agent of the owner who had several pages of paperwork for us to fill out and sign - no forewarning this would occur and inappropriate given that payment and agreement terms had already been made. Additionally, we were asked for additional money at check-in - for wood that was double the cost quoted by the owner and for a small dog the owner had forgotten to include in the fee. Again, no pre-arrival communication from the owner on these items. I paid only the portion of the additional money requested that was legitimate, and fortunately, this was accepted. There are no instructions in the house about the house or things to do nearby. The kitchen is haphazardly stocked and the primary pot available for cooking is worn teflon with lots of scratches. House is reasonably clean and my family had a nice time together. When we return to the area, however, we will stay at a different place.
