Great River Chalet with River Access

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 recently stayed at this chalet and had a very nice time. We rented canoes on the river and had a wonderful time; hiking and horsebacking riding in Shenandoah was spectacular; and Luray Caverns were amazing!

The chalet is well maintained and in a convenient location close to Luray and Shenandoah Nat Park, and has river access. The house was clean and the hot tub was pristine. The kitchen is small but fully functional. The owner Jesse was very responsive with phone and text messages before check-in. If we ever return to the area for vacation, I would definitely stay here again.

Nice Mountain Cabin near River

  • 4 of 5

Owner was responsive and attentive during the reservation process and was prompt during check-in and checkout. Home was clean and tidy and easy to maneuver. Location is great with easy access to Luray and Front Royal and surrounding forest for hiking or outdoors activities. River access was not attached directly to the property, but was within a short reasonable walk, but I did miss having the sounds and unobstructed view of the river. Hot tub was wonderful and well maintained allowing for a nice evening treat! Great for couple retreat, since pricing is based on double occupancy only. We would return and stay again in the cabin if opportunity presented.

A Perfect Cabin Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed at Appalachian Sunrise for an extended weekend in May (2014) and we could not have been happier with our choice. As someone who often rents cabins in Luray, I found this chalet to be one of the nicest and coziest ever – and the owner, Jesse, is a shining star! He was amazing to work with! Right from the start, he exhibited that rare combination of proud owner, responsible businessman, genuine gentleman and friendly, courteous and welcoming host. When we arrived, he greeted us with a big wave and a smile. He took the time to answer all of our questions and gave us a brief walkthrough to acquaint us with all of the beautiful features he has personally and lovingly built into his property.

The chalet itself is lovely - clean, comfortable, well-maintained and beautifully decorated, with all amenities as advertised, on a lush, manicured lot with close river access. The living and dining rooms were warm and inviting. The kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of dishes, pots, pans and utensils. There was a new, easy-to-use grill on the screened porch, and the hot tub was pristine, bubbling, and ready to go. During our stay, we all had comfy beds that offered good, restful sleep – all the better when we took our day trips in and around Luray - Luray Caverns is just 15 minutes away!

In short, Appalachian Sunrise chalet offered us everything we needed to have a great getaway vacation with no hassle – just lots of fun and relaxation. From reserving our dates right through to check-out, everything on the business end was in order and every contact I had with Jesse was smooth and trouble-free. From start to finish, everything on our stay was just right. We definitely want to return!

Jesse was great with setting us up at the last minute and even gave us terrific directions when we were kinda lost. He walked us through everything and didn't leave any questions unanswered and he made the whole experience very comfortable and memorable. The chalet was very clean/well maintained with beautiful decors that the pictures don't do any justice showing. You can tell Jesse is a hard working man and has put a lot of love into this place. The location is very close to everything although during our stay we mostly stayed in, there is pretty much everything you can ask for there from a great variety of appliances to make anything from frozen drinks to cake to steak. There was surround sound in the main room and the hot tub has great features and was great to relax in as we gazed at the stars. The tempurpedic master bed was the most comfortable thing we've ever slept on. The list goes on. To sum up this review, for what it's worth the chalet is listed for a superb deal. It took us about 3-4 weeks of heavy searching we gave up until we found this place and it was all worth it. Definitely a place we would re-visit.

Thank you Jesse for everything

Great Cabin for a Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful weekend here. It was by far the the cleanest and best kept place I have stayed in the Shenandoah area. Plenty of dishes/utensils/kitchenware including a wafflemaker, along with a nice bbq and an outdoor deck with seating. The hot tub was relaxing with great views and still looked brand new. Views from the main windows are great, especially late at night looking up to the stars. Easy access to Luray and Front Royal. Would highly recommend this place to any visitors. Owner is very friendly, responsive, and clearly cares about his property and guests. Looking forward to another trip here.
