Guestbook comments from the owner


First of all, thank you for having us as guest in your home. We had a great time. My family has been coming to Massanutten for about ten years. We have rented houses and have used timeshares in the past. Now we can say we have found our winter and summer getaway home.

This was special. Immediately after speaking with Brian, the Owner, I could tell he was proud of his home. Brian worked with me in getting his home ready a week earlier than intended for guests. Once we arrived, it was confirmed why he should be. The pictures do not do justice. Let me be clear, I use "home" and "guest" fittingly. This is how we felt while staying there for the weekend, like guests. His home is so inviting. At one time, truly feeling like guests in his home, we expected him to come on in and sit at the table with us. By the way, there were hospitality refreshments upon my arrival ... very classy. The bedrooms, family room, kitchen and basement were enjoyed by all. In closing, I must confirm that there were no issues. The payment process, door code retrieval, easy to follow instructions for (appliances, fireplace, stereo, TV's etc .) and the deposit was returned in 3 weeks. What a way to have and finish a getaway. No issues. We are looking forward to our next getaway at Brian's Home!!! Thanks again.

Well kept house with nice spacious main floor, comfortable bedrooms, and fun basement!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit! This is the best-conditioned rental we've rented in 10 years of coming to Massanutten. Everything worked as advertised. The house is in the lower part of the resort and easily accessible.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It was a great layout and very clean and well maintained. It provided a great space for all 3 families on our trip. The basement was entertaining and we loved watching for deer in the backyard. We would definitely rent this home again!

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear all of you enjoyed your stay! We are grateful that you picked our house for your trip. The quiet woods out back are great for kids to explore and wonderful for the deer:) We hope you come back and get to enjoy the warmer weather on the mountain. There is so much to do at Massanutten and Shenandoah National park is spectacular! Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is much appreciated. Shannon

Owner's Response: Yay! So happy that you got to watch the deer. We will see them usually every morning in the woods behind the house. Sometimes the buck will just stroll down the road in front of the house. It is quite a sight:) We would love to have you back! It means a lot that you took the time to review us. Much appreciated, Shannon

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, spacious, and had everything we could ask for ( except for maybe a hot tub, on the other hand, if a hot tub was there I probably wouldn't leave the house))) communication with the host was prompt and on point. Location is very convenient too, within 5 min from ski slopes and water park. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Great! So happy your group enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review! We appreciate it so much. Yes. We have found no need for a hot tub because our family is always running around immersing ourselves in all the activities:) Thanks again! Shannon

Welcome to Elk Lane. This large 5 bedroom home is brand new on the rental market. It is newly renovated with plenty of space to unwind with friends and family. Complete with a new gas fireplace and private wooded views as well as the backdrop of the mountains in Fall and Winter.

There is plenty of space to gather around the large farm table and relax in the comfort of the fire-lit living room with flat screen T.V. Take advantage of the extra room in the first floor den for playing board games or just reading a book. Daylight fills the open floor plan throughout the year. The kitchen was recently updated with new stainless steel appliances, refinished cabinets and tile work. For the cooks in the family you will find all the comforts of home from a gas stove and oven to a fully equipped kitchen for entertaining.

The real fun on Elk Lane is found in the basement! The Tropical themed playland is furnished with a 60' wide plasma HDTV with DVD/BR, Surround Sound. Bring your ipods, DVD's, CD's and enjoy the TV or music as you play air hockey or shoot pool on our two-in-one game table. Or go back in time and take your turn at Ms.Pac Man! An original arcade game console with updated display and hardware providing a choice of over 60 games to play. It has all of the greats from the early days: Donkey Kong, Galaga and many more. The basement is also furnished with a wet bar, electronic dart board, foosball table and for the video gamers in the family - a PS3 console/ HDTV station. Play your games you bring from home or with your on-line buddies. This basement rec room has it all.

In Winter enjoy an afternoon or evening skiing, snowboarding or even tubing down the slopes. On a mild winter day the Zip-line and Canopy tours offer adventure for all ages. Even the Putt-Putt course offers beautiful views and fun in cooler temperatures.

You can also warm up and feel like you are in the tropics at the massive Indoor Waterpark. Travel 10 minutes down the road and take the kids to the Harrisonburg Children's Musuem and check out JMU's beautiful arboretum.

In the warmer months you can hike the great trails within Massanutten Resort or travel minutes down the road to the historic Shenandoah National Park which contains over 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Along with the beautiful vistas on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Mountains the park has over 500 miles of hiking trails.

Our home offers many amenities for vacationing families of all ages and we hope you will vist with us soon. Whether you stay for a long weekend or have an extended stay we know you will want to return.

We hope your memories of this beautiful area and all it has o offer are as wonderful as our family's are.
