About Dart Alsmeyer
Hi, we are Helen & Dick and family (3 generations). We puchased this lot decades ago, had a cedar shell erected and have assisted tradesman complete the interior to our liking. It has been a great place for the extended family to gather since they are spread from Philly to North Carolina and this is a good central location. We have enjoyed watching the resort grow and add amenities (especially liked the additional ski slopes and golfing). This property was recently opened up to vacation rentals and look forward to sharing our home away from home.
Dart Alsmeyer purchased this House in 1976
Why Dart Alsmeyer chose Massanutten
This is a superbly located chalet on the mountain near the top for views and proximity to the ski slopes. The open floorplan with the greatroom and loft above keeps everybody in close proximity and great for gatherings. There are 2 secluded and somewhat quiet bedrooms at the front of the house for those so inclined to sleep away their time here (not recommended though).
What makes this House unique
The gingerbread exterior makes you feel like you are at a Swiss chalet and the theme is carried throughout.

Loved the area .
Nice house but some updates could make it great .
Cozy, rustic lodge with nature views
My husband and I enjoyed a 2 month stay with a one week break to DC area. The owners were very accommodating during the break allowing us to store our bikes and other personnel items in their private shed. Owners easy to communicate with if I had any questions about lodge or area. We hiked daily, enjoyed amenities that Massanutten offered; restaurants, entertainment, festivals. We hiked Shenandoah state park often, went to historical sites close by and lakes. Lodge has everything needed to make your stay comfortable.
Mountains this time of year were nice with a lot of wild life. Hiking was great!
The property was more than adequate and accepted pets. This isn’t a “5 star” hotel and I didn’t expect that. Property is old and needs some TLC but the price was right. Only complaint I have is the gas grill didn’t have any gas so I couldn’t use it.
Nicely stocked and located property, but dated.
Overall, a decent place to stay, especially for the money. Lots of parking. Well-stocked kitchen. Adequate space overall, but the "living room" is tight. The beds are comfortable. It definitely needs updating, unless you like the 70s/80s. Also, the deck is in need of repair and there were a few boards I would not step on.
If you want a 5-star unit, go elsewhere. But this is good for 6 - 8 people.
It was dated and the outside needed a good pick me up.
We enjoyed our stay. The location and
Size of the house was great! We loved the fireplace and number of bedrooms. The kids liked the loft but dead ladybugs were in the beds. The downstairs beds were clean.
Perfect for my family
This home is clean and nicely located. It's an older home and the furnishings are dated but everything works properly and is nicely maintained. We would definitely stay here again.
Massanutten is a 4 season mountain resort located only 2 1/2 hours drive from Washington, DC within the Shenandoah Valley. The city of Harrisonburg, VA is nearby and many small towns offer amenites also.
