About Barbara Shuler

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!

Barbara Shuler purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Barbara Shuler chose Shenandoah

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Perfect break

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious and comfortable cabin with a well equipped kitchen. We were there in the dead of winter and enjoyed walking in the woods and the hot tub. The hosts were very accommodating when we wanted to extend our stay.

A great weekend escape!

  • 5 of 5

The entire process and experience for this rental property over the past weekend was phenomenal. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating and the property itself was perfect for our group of 8 adults to relax and enjoy the local area and outdoors. Everything from the comfy beds, general cleanliness of the place, hot tub, to the fully equipped kitchen made this one of the best weekend trips we have made to Shenandoah.

great house well taken care of we loved it

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many houses in the general area and this house was beautiful. My kids loved the pool table, hot tub. tubing on the river, catching fish and just so much more. Barbara was available to answer any questions we had and is a great host. The only sad thing was having to leave and come back home.... Would love to come back again

Thank you!

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect!! The pictures don't do justice to how spectacular this property is inside and out. The river was just stunning crystal clear from the canoes. We enjoyed the pool table and hot tub during the night. There was plenty of space inside although it was so nice we stayed outside most of the day. I can't say enough about how wonderful and relaxing the property is and Barbara was very nice and extremely helpful and available! I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a fun weekend on the river. (But I suggest bringing water shoes)

We had a great time. This is our second time vacationing at this home. No complaints at all.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and has everything and anything you need. I did not want to leave. We will be making plans for next year and hoping to stay a little longer then 5 days. Kids had a blast and was sad to go. Tubing was fun. Played games. Had family meals together. Dogs loved laying in the sun all day. The home felt like home. So much to do so little time even with 5 days. Barbara is so nice and on top of things. Thank you so much Barbara. I can not wait to go back. You are a lucky lady to have such a beautiful home on the river. My dream home.
