Through the years of our own family vacations, we realized a need for a place like Rapid Retreat. Vacations are so much fun when you can share them with your favorite family members and friends, so we created the perfect spot for big get togethers. We've had our own families here and tested the waters to see what was needed most to make this one of the best places to stay. We truly do supply everything that anyone would ever need for a perfect stay!

Who wouldn't want to own 4 acres on the Shenandoah River with a 3,100 square foot home? It's the kind of place you want to share with others as the Shenandoah Valley is a truly beautiful place to see.
Rapid Retreat is a year round delight! No long, mountainous roads that can't be assessed without a 4 wheel drive. Very nice, family oriented neighborhood where you can let it all hang out! 2 floors really are handy for spreading out and relaxing.The large yard provides so many outdoor games & activities.
We booked this for friends reunion. Booking was very easy, I just used the messaging feature of HomeAway to contact the owner. Owner was very responsive and answered all questions that I had. Took payments using paypal which was very convenient for me. Check in was easy too. The first thing that I noticed is that there was no long contract to sign. It was a simple one page document. The owner took us around the home to explain, she even took the time to pull out additional toys from storage for kids to play with. We felt very welcome and was really like staying at a friend's vacation home. Adults and kids alike enjoyed the activities in the game room. The hot tub was a big bonus. Our dog enjoyed the big yard and walks. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The location is very good to enjoy nature. and the river. Just that during this time of the year, need to be prepared to handle flies and bugs in the evening :-) . Shenandoah national forest is just about 40 mins away and we enjoyed hiking there. Overall we had a wonderful time! Highly recommend!
6 of us so very much enjoyed our stay! The house is amazing with every possible thing we needed. The hot tub was really nice. Thank you, Barbara, for being so wonderful and easy to work with! :)
We rented this wonderful house for a family Thanksgiving. The location is a perfect quiet retreat. The house is loaded with everything you could ask for. The grounds were perfect for the kids to enjoy and the owner went overboard to make sure we had everything we needed. The bedroom locations allowed each family to have their own sweet. It was absolutely perfect.
We stayed here for 3 nights late Aug 2015, to spend a few days in the Shenandoah National Park. What can I say? Firstly, Barbara is a great person to deal with, nothing is too much trouble and everything is better and beyond how described on the marketing collateral.
We loved everything about it. You can be in the park in about 30 mins, go canoeing on the river, right out front, or just sit and watch nature and the peacefulness of the location. At night we used the BBQ and fire pit. It was bliss. Shopping for steaks is no big deal ,whether you go into Luray or Shenandoah, there are supermarkets to help you out.
Overall for us it was just great and a shame to leave.
Many thanks to Barbara and family for allowing us to use your cabin.

We have rented through VRBO for years and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. This home has everything you could possibly need or want on vacation.
The kitchen is extremely well stocked - with many pots, pans, dishes, etc. The cabinets were clearly labeled as well, so you knew where to find dish towels or wine glasses.
We enjoyed the pool table downstairs, where you can find a closet packed with outdoor and indoor games. The kids also enjoyed simply running around the yard, watching the hummingbirds visit the feeder. Soaking in the hot tub was fantastic as well, especially after hiking in Shenandoah National Park, which is about a 20 minute drive away.
Despite being easy to get to, the property was very quiet and private, located off a flat gravel road. It is also convenient to several restaurants and grocery stores. We especially liked Ciro's Italian Eatery in nearby Elkton. My son ordered the macaroni and cheese which was amazing. We ordered some for ourselves to go, it was that good!
Barbara is fantastic to rent from. She is very down to earth and obviously takes great pride in keeping the place spotless for renters. She really made us feel welcome and at home. There are so many great qualities to this home that it is hard to adequately describe it; you just have to experience it! :)
We love this place and can't wait to return.
Thank you Barbara!
We stayed here for my daughter's graduation from JMU. It was awesome! Sooo much room for everyone it was great! The owner provides so many extras that you really don't need anything but your clothes,personal items and food. It was basically move in ready. I have never stayed somewhere that had provided these extras (dish soap,laundry detergent and so on) it was great! The owner is super! Easy transaction all the way around. You won't be disappointed! THANKS Barbara! :)
Surrounded by the mountains and the Shenandoah River and so convenient to nearby golf courses, ski resorts, quaint downtown shops in Luray with the famous Luray Caverns & Luray Reptile Zoo, within a half hour drive to Shenandoah National Park
