Overview

About the property

Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Enjoy natural beauty at this historic retreat on the banks of the Shenandoah River. Built in 1739, Stonewall Crossing sits on 25 beautiful acres with nearly a quarter mile of riverfront views, a meadow, a quarry, and views of the Massanutten mountain ridge.

Stonewall Crossing is a unique, welcoming respite in the countryside that sits on the banks of this historic river. The original two-story log cabin has been beautifully renovated. The lower level serves as the Great Room, complete with a bluestone fireplace built from rock quarried on the property. In all, the house features four large bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. The décor of each bedroom draws inspiration from the original structures of the pioneering families and Shenandoah Valley farmers who have lived here over the past three centuries.

Stonewall Crossing also features luxurious, modern amenities. A fully appointed, chef’s-quality kitchen with granite countertops opens to the dining room--perfect for cooking, entertaining, and gathering to enjoy special meals. Off the dining room and surrounding the house is a two-story deck overlooking the river and perfect for socializing, watching the sunset, stargazing, or relaxing with a good book.

Stonewall Crossing is located in the Shenandoah Valley nestled between the Shenandoah National Forest and the George Washington National Forest. Stonewall Crossing’s deck provides a stunning view of Strickler Knob, considered one of the top hikes in the Mid-Atlantic region.

About Sara Capella

Stonewall Crossing is the vacation home for three-generations of a family that has endeavored to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of this homestead. We live and work in the area, and we frequently ‘runaway’ to Stonewall Crossing. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have.

Sara Capella purchased this estate in 2004

Why Sara Capella chose Shenandoah Valley

Only 90 miles (a 2-hour drive) from the Washington DC area gives you enough proximity for a weekend escape, but sufficient distance to provide a respite from city life.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy swimming and kayaking in the river, the proximity to excellent hiking trails, the beautiful mountain views and the peacefulness of country life. We also love to cook and entertain and the property is perfect for that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect location for our girls get-away and birthday celebration. We absolutely appreciate all the attention to details and upgraded features. The kitchen is fully stocked and we staged two amazing meals.

Magnificent house! Incredibly fun!

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I had a fantastic time at stonewall crossing. The outside fireplace, the access to the river, the incredible porch. Everything was remarkably fun, easy, and beautiful. Thanks so much!

Exceptional home for large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We spend four days (April 27- 30) at this home - there were 9 of us, 7 adults and 2 small children. While there are many great attributes here, there are two that stand out in my mind. First, if your family likes to be outdoors - this is the place. There are acres to roam and the fields outside of the house are very nicely maintained -- we set up croquet (we brought), played night Frisbee, chipped a few wiffle golf balls all in the yard. We went kayaking in the river and fished and spent hours outside in the evening. The second terrific asset in this house is it's size and construction -- in the evening after we came in from outside, we would play cards for hours, into the wee hours of the am, laughing and loud, and the little ones (2 and 4) never heard a peep. Loved that. I have no complaints about this home - its a great value for the rental price.

Beautiful, worked out perfectly for our entire family!

  • 5 of 5

House was big and beautiful and the property, especially the outdoor fireplace, was wonderful. The kitchen, dining area and family room were all big, and the bathrooms were outstanding! So impressed, we all said we would come back. Very happy and impressed!

Beautiful historic lodge

  • 4 of 5

My company rented this property to host a yoga & wellness retreat. The space is quite beautiful and comfortable - minutes away from Luray caverns, right on the Shenandoah river, very easy drive from DC. Rooms are well renovated, stylish, and have their own bathroom. We had an absolutely relaxing weekend. The only suggestion I have is that there'd be a property manager available at the lodge at least once per day to check on guests. I've rented similar class properties before and they all came with staff and management handling any issues that may occur on a daily basis. I'd highly recommend Stonewall Crossing for your luxury vacation to Shenandoah!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Stonewall Crossing, and we had a fantastic experience both times. The house is beautiful and well-maintained. It's also a great space for larger groups--we had eight adults, one five-year-old, and a baby, and there was plenty of space for all of us. Thanks for such a great time!

Gorgeous house in a gorgeous setting! The house is taken care of very well. It was a perfect place to celebrate New Year's and my wife's birthday with a number of her friends. Would definitely recommend this place!
