About the property

Three BR/2 Bath Cabin, Sleeps 6 w/Hot Tub and Mountain Views

Secluded Get-Away from the weekly grind, this cabin is very new and open for business! Warm, inviting, spacious with all the amenities of a luxury hotel right in the shadow of the Shenandoah Mountains, this cabin is ready for up to six guests at a time. Fully furnished, with a fabulous 8-person hot tub, super deck, screened-in-porch, grill and one gas fireplace, you will enjoy nature, peace-and-quiet as well the comforts of “A Buck's View.” Outfitted with flat screen televisions, DVD/VCR and DIRECT TV, come and enjoy the Shenandoah Valley during the day and unwind by the fireplace with a movie at night. Yes, we have a great fire pit outside (wood not provided) and a dog run for those guests who have their best friend by their side (yes, there is a pet charge)!

This three-bedroom cabin brags two king sized beds, and one queen sized bed. Two full baths (one master suite bath and one full bath in the hall) , sile-stone countertops, stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, fridge etc.) and plenty of room for your group of up to six person makes this the ideal weekend get-away. No internet connection and no WIFI for guests but there is spotty service for your smart phone (Verizon is strongest signal). Sure, there is a washer and dryer in the unit for the guests who want to make more than a weekend of it!

Gadino Cellars offers reduced pricing on tastings to any guests of “A Buck’s View,” and downtown Luray is a quaint town with antique shops, craft stores and super restaurants. Luray Caverns and zip-lining are great for the kids as well as a day on the Shenandoah River (call Luray Chamber of Commerce for more details at 540.743.3915). Lake Arrowhead is less than three miles away for a day at the Lake to swim, boat or fish etc.

'A Buck's View' is about 90 minutes from downtown Washington, DC. Escape the crowds and the bustle for the mountains!

5% Teachers & Military discount with ID. If you are a repeat customer, let me know for another discount! You must request the discount at the time of reservation or prior to confirming the reservation.

Located East of Luray, Va. 22835 off of Rt. 211, bordering the Shenandoah National Park. You can expect an 8 -mile drive to downtown Luray. Check in is typically at 3 p.m. and check out is at 11 a.m. sharp. Come and enjoy this great all-log cabin!

Finally, we are excited about our new concrete driveway up to the cabin - installed Dec 2016!

Of note:

- Early check ins or late check outs are an option pending the guests coming or going before you. There is a $40 charge for both early check in and late check out if it is available.

- Firewood is stacked by the handyman but not a guarantee. We recommend bringing your own firewood or checking the cabin out first and then purchasing it if is not there when you arrive.

- Charcoal is not provided for the grill and the gas grill is generally ready with a tank but if you run out or there is little in the tank, you are on your own to refill the tank.

- Dishes, cooking utensils, pots, pans, silverware, glasses etc. are in the cabinets. However, if you need a special utensil to cook a favorite meal, bring it.

- There are some games there at the cabin but bring your own playing cards, favorite games etc.

- Coffee pot is there with filter - bring your own grounds, creamer and sweetener.

About Carl S. Ey

The owners are a retired military couple but they lease their cabin to a limited liability company to manage 'A Buck's View.' Your host for your stay at the cabin is Ey Man Enteprises, LLC. We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to your review. Thank you.

Carl S. Ey purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carl S. Ey chose Shenandoah Valley

This cabin came available to Ey Man Enterprises, LLC in 2005 and was redone in 2014. Looking for a place to let our clients hang their hats on long weekends that took them away from the DC bustle, Ey Man Enterprises, LLC was fortunate enough to acquire 'A Buck's View.' It has been a main staple of many vacation plans ever since. Please enjoy our favorite wineries - 'Little Washington Winery,' Gadino Cellars and Chester Gap Cellars. Dinner is super at Thornton River Grill in Sperryville but you need reservations typically!

What makes this cabin unique

The most unique benefit is that you are away from everything - it is quiet at 'A Buck's View.' This cabin was completed in July 2014 and ready for guests - serene and ready for you to relax i.e. no internet, no wi-fi, your cell phone may get connectivity but even better is that it will likely NOT get service ;)! Drive into town (8 miles) to get connected with your smart phone - other than that, enjoy the peace at this great cabin.

Please remember, the hot tub is serviced regularly. To that end, all clients MUST SHOWER BEFORE ENTERING THE HOT TUB. Additionally, if the hot tub becomes inoperable during your stay, it will likely not be repaired and the owner will not authorize a refund of any kind if the hot tub becomes in operable. Since the hot tubs are maintained/serviced regularly, we rarely have an issue but again, refunds for hot tubs that break down during your stay are not provided. Lastly, please keep all drinks away from the hot tub; the tub is checked after you leave and we will charge for a water change if the H2O is murky or the handyman finds bottle caps, cups etc. in the tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We took a family trip to Buck's View in early September. This was a perfect place to relax away from the city. Will definitely think about going again during the winter. Five- plus stars!!!!!

Cozy family week away

We had a lovely stay here! The cabin is cozy, beautiful, comfortable, feels brand new, toddler friendly and in a gorgeous setting with close proximity to Shenandoah. It was exactly what we were looking for! I can't wait to go back again!

Great location, relaxing, clean, peaceful

  • 4 of 5

As a relatively new log cabin, everything was in perfect shape at A Buck's View. It's very solidly built, well laid out, and has everything you need for a relaxing stay.

You'll see other reviews that state the road up to it is very steep, and it is. But we have a low-riding all-wheel-drive sport wagon and made it up just fine. There is some washout along the edge which makes it narrow, but it's readily passable, though some front-wheel-drive vehicles driven by people with lead foots seemed to have problems coming up to A Buck's Peak. Also, I believe this steep part may be paved in the near future which will make it a breeze.

There is zero internet and minimal-to-no cell phone access...which is great for a relaxing stay. There is cable and several great televisions on which to watch.

The screened porch is just the right size for a nice gathering and adequately keeps out the numerous bugs that reside in the surrounding woods. In addition to the table and four chairs, there are eight folding chairs to accommodate many other people.

There is an outdoor fire pit and an outdoor hot tub but we didn't use either. They looked great, though.

The two bathrooms were very clean and had decent water pressure. The three bedrooms were comfortable and clean as well. My wife is allergic to dogs and cats, but even though this is a pet-friendly house, she didn't seem to have a problem so that's an indication it's kept very clean.

All in all a great stay. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Mike. Additionally, thanks for the frank assessment on the driveway. The good news is that we are paving the lower part of the driveway i.e. the steep portion this fall so guests this winter (Dec 2016 and beyond) will have an easy drive up the hill. We would love to have you again and remember repeat guests get a discount - ask for it!

An excellent mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

An excellent stay in a beautiful cabin tucked away from it all yet a short trip to Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. We had many wildlife sightings just outside the cabin along Jewel Hollow Road including deer and black bear. The kids especially enjoyed the hot tub and having s'mores around the fire. Even before we left we were planning our next trip

Borders Shenandoah National Park; this cabin is literally in the shadow of the Shenandoah Mountains. This is a great area to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Antiquing is a great activity and the wineries right over the mountain in Washington, Virginia are fabulous! Visit both Gadino Cellars and Lil Washington Winery and tell them where you are staying for a nice discount on the tasting price. Additionally, the cabin is a short ride from Lake Arrowhead for swimming and fishing, Bear Mountain Zip Lining is less than 8 min away by car and Luray Caverns are open year round within a 15 min car ride. Lastly, the most unique movie theater is downtown Luray at Page Theater; playing first run movies, you will thoroughly enjoy this quaint movie hall!

Please remember to take care of the cabin as if it were your second home. The housekeepers work primarily for tips so when you get to a clean cabin, remember them in gratuity.

The hot tub is fabulous but we require all to shower before entering and no drinks on the hot tub ledge or near it.

Smoking in the cabin in prohibited. Smoking outside is fine but please clean up.

Yes, you can bring your dog (or dogs) for a fee; one dog is $40 for your stay and two or more has an $80 charge. Please use the "pooper scoopers" to clean up after your pet. Lastly, please do not leave the pet inside the cabin unless you have a crate and do not leave the dog in the dog run if you are leaving the premises.

Lastly, please follow the check in/out instructions and we will be happy to refund your deposit within 14 days of your departure.

Have a great time.

Rental payment must be received before you arrive.
Lastly, we have a strict refund/cancellation policy:
1. Pending the client following the check-in instructions, your $250 deposit will be returned within 14 days of your departure (minus any credit card transaction fees).
2. After receiving your deposit, the dates are blocked. Once a deposit is received, it will not be refunded should you cancel.
3. Should the client cancel within 14 days prior to arrival date, your rental payment will not be refunded. Ey Man Enterprises, LLC may offer another stay at no cost but Ey Man Enterprises, LLC is not compelled to do that.
4. Should the client cancel between 15-30 days of arrival, 1/2 of their rental payment will be refunded.
5. Should a client arrive and decide not to complete their stay, no monies will be refunded except the deposit pending adherence to the check in/out instructions.
