Generally OK, but...

  • 3 of 5

We rented this property for the second year in a row since it can accomodate two daughters, one son-in-law, two grandchildren and us in one place. The location close to the snow activity is ideal, especially for the kids (that means all of us). The rooms are large and the two levels with a main room on both floors means that we not living on top of each other. On the down side, the maintenance needs some attention as there were lamps with dead bulbs, some areas not well cleaned and the many things starting to show wear and tear. The china and kitchen utensils in particular need some attention. A couple of small chairs were unusable.

It would be wonderful if the owner could install a wireless router since cell phone service is close to non-existant and therefore e-mail and messaging also not available at the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for coming to stay, again! We will contact the home owner about upgrading the household items you mentioned. When there is a power surge, bulbs blow out, all over Massanutten. We try our best to keep up and replace blown bulbs, but it can happen after the house has been cleaned & inspected and before guests arrive. We did get replacement bulbs to the house while you were there. The owner does not want this home to have internet service because the goal is to "get away from it all". The Hollow house is located near the top of the mountain, very close to the line of cell phone towers along the mountain ridge. Cell phone service at the Hollow is excellent. All our staff gets full-bar reception on their Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and even Boost Mobile cell phones. We hope you will return to stay with us, the Massanutten Vacation team

Beautiful location - great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our extended family (8 people) for my daughters graduation from JMU - and we all agreed that it was a perfect place for us to stay. The home was clean and well maintained, and the two decks were perfect spots to gather and relax. Be forewarned the driveway is VERY steep, but once we got past that, the location of the house and the views are absolutely magnificent.

We did have an issue with the hot water on Friday night, but we called the emergency number on the contract and a plumber came out the next morning to fix the issue. The prompt response was appreciated.

Overall, we would recommend this property and we would rent here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad you enjoyed the house and the views from it! We're sorry there was a problem with the hot water, but everything worked like it is supposed to- you called maintenance and the problem was fixed quickly! Because a good referral is the best compliment we can receive, we ask that you tell friends, family, co-workers and neighbors about our vacation homes. We hope you will come back to stay with us! Very sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

Wonderfully Blessed Get Away

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Hollow the first of Feb, 2015 with our daughters, son in law and grandchildren for a short family time/ski trip. The house was nice, met our needs and we enjoyed our stay. More than the house, we would like to say Katrina was such a wonderful person who wanted to help find the right place for us on a short notice. I talked with her on the phone, but didn't get to meet her in person. My husband met her and affirmed that she was a very kind, personable lady who plans to please her customers. Thank you Katrina and Laresa

Fairly new custom built home located high on a mountain in Massanutten. There are two golf courses, ski slopes, swimming pool, and fishing within the gated community.
