About Lynn Jones

I'm a retired woman who loves the Shenandoah Valley and especially Massanutten. Having been born in PA in the mountains, this area in the mountains (Blue Ridge, Massanutten and Allegheny mountain ranges) is perfect for me. I also love people and owning vacation rentals is the perfect way for me to be able to treat others to what I love and offer them unforgettable vacations.

Lynn Jones purchased this house in 2012

Why Lynn Jones chose Shenandoah Valley

The Crow's Nest is the most unique house I have seen in Massanutten. It almost looks like a house from a movie scene with a European flare, two sets of hand-welded spiral stair cases, warm knotty-wood pine walls in the great room and hall ways, hard wood doors and moldings and views of the mountains I love the out-of-doors and this house has about 1,000 square feet of beautiful covered decking with lots of wicker furniture and views.

What makes this house unique

This house makes you feel 'one with nature.' There are two large walls of floor to ceiling windows and approx. 1,000 sq ft of Trex decking and rails all covered with lovely roofing. The most unique aspect is the crow's nest atop the house for viewing the mountains.

Cozy relaxing house surrounded by any activities to entertain your family.

  • 4 of 5

This was the best house we could find in our budget for the amount of people in our group. This was a great place to stay but there were some inconvenient quarks about the property that prevented five star review. We had towels only for eight people but we had 12 guests. The property has ample sleeping quarters but it does not have adequate living space for a party of 12 unless you count outside or if your group is a close knit family that doesn't mind sitting on top of each other. The amenities were wonderful with plenty to do. Be careful not to use the master bedroom jacuzzi tub during the night if someone is sleeping in the room under the master because it makes the whole room vibrate. I would definitely go back but with a smaller group. The kitchen was well beyonde stock. They put a lot of thought into the items they made available. Our party really enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful Treehouse

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! The decks are amazing! From the upper levels you feel like you're in a treehouse above the world and the lower levels put you right in the trees not far from where the deer walk each morning.

The exterior is beautiful and the kitchen and baths are very nicely done. The sheets, towels, and beds were fantastic!

The house was plenty big enough with 5 very comfortable bedrooms. We loved the downstairs rec room and played plenty of foosball and checkers. There are tons of tv's for movie watching, or in our case the Olympic's!

The location was low enough on the mountain for easy in and out access but high enough on a slope for great views.

Lynn was very courteous, easy to work with and just a wonderful lady.

We are grateful for our time there!

This was probably the best place that I have stayed with family

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to arrange a family reunion of 3 generations and common point between NJ,VA and NC. Shenandoah was the choice and then looked for a big house to accommodate 11 people. This house popped out of the search and based on review grabbed it. Realized that this was the perfect choice after reaching out to this place.Hot tube was the star attraction for kids.Enough rooms for families and perfect kitchen with all utensil. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house. Lynn was very helpful from the beginning.

Fantastic! Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The description was pretty spot on. The crow's nest was a great place to hang out and play cards. The living room was a little small for our group of seven so we would watch movies in the huge second floor bedroom. We definitely intend to stay here again.

Thanks Lynn!

Great Time at Crow's Nest

  • 5 of 5

Our recent trip to Massanutten with our family was a big success. The house was every bit as nice as advertised, and Lynn was great to work with. There were ten of us, three generations from sixties down to a couple of one year olds. Plenty of room to spread out inside, and we really enjoyed the outdoor decks. The kitchen had everything we needed, there were some good toys for the kids, the hot tub was nice and we enjoyed the very big grill. Our stay at Crow's Nest couldn't have been any better. Thank you Lynn, and we'll be back one day!

Perfect Mountain Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to get six of our grandkids together for a family summer fling. Most of them had already made the beach scene with their parents and we wanted something different and a bit more private. A Massanutten cabin seemed to fit the bill - and having a waterpark nearby was perfect. We had eleven total folks present and the cabin easily handled that number. The Unit was spotlessly clean and the beds first class. The decor was most attractive - but not overdone as you sometimes run into with "cabin fever". Having two wash dryer setups was perfect with all the swimming going on. A new and large outdoor gas grill kept the food supply rolling and the well stocked kitchen supported the task beautifully. The master level and crow's nest generated a special and private retreat for the old folks in charge - while the basement game room and other common spaces easily gave all present some elbow space to do what they wanted to do. A hot tub - working TVs - bountiful decks - and spectacular wooded views complete the ideal package. Access package and directions were perfect, complete, clear, and accuarte. The Owner is one-on-one interested in your stay and satisfaction. We plan on making this a permanent stop over in our future summer schedules.
