Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Drake’s,



What a lovely oasis this home has been for us this past week!!



We assembled three families from Texas, Nebraska and Northern Virginia and had a lovely time sitting around the dining room table laughing about the fun we had that day and recalling lost memories from childhood. This was the best family reunion ever! This home made it feel like an “On Golden Pond” moment!



I could feel the love and kindness all around me in all of the small touches you’ve added and the stunning views.



Thank you and God Bless you.

Wedding Party

  • 5 of 5

My daughter's wedding was at a winery near here. Various wedding guests rented several different houses on this street. This house was by far the nicest. It is beautifully appointed. The furniture is new and very comfortable. The house itself is in pristine condition. We have rented many VRBO homes and this one was by far the most well stocked. Anything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals was readily available. Everything was of very high quality.

The interior space was nicely laid out and very roomy.

The view from both inside the house and on the deck was beautiful. The owner was very helpful in recommending activities for everyone to enjoy after the wedding. We would definitely come back again and I highly recommend this beautiful home.

Homecoming getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great property to spend some time with fellow JMU alum. We were close enough to get into Harrisonburg for the football game then come home to a nice quiet home. The view was beautiful!

Excellent experience. Great house

  • 5 of 5

My group of 7 friends convened at Drake Lodge for a college homecoming event for the weekend. The location was perfect. The view from the deck was spectacular. The open floor plan was perfect for us to be able to hang out in comfort and reconnect. We grilled on the new gas grill on the deck and enjoyed the expansive dining area for our group. The kitchen is very well organized and conducive to entertaining. It was spotless when we arrived and was very comfortable sleeping. Very spacious. Owener was great to deal with. Very communicative and gracious. All in all Drake Lodge was perfect and we hope to come together there again in the future. We highly recommend this rental.

Stunning location and complete amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at Drake Lodge for an early Thanksgiving and to do some hiking in Shenandoah National Park. Bob responded quickly and thoroughly throughout the time leading up to the rental whether it was to finalize the contract or to recommend restaurants. The house was meticulously clean, the kitchen very well stocked for cooking, and there were more games and TVs and things to do in and around the house than we had time to fully enjoy. Weather in mid-October was warmer than expected and the leaves were just starting to change color. A beautiful harvest moon rose on our last night there. Shenandoah National Park was only about 30mins away, and there were plenty of grocery stores and restaurants within 10-15mins. We were able to walk to a ridgeline trail in about 15mins and you can drive to a ridge access point in about 5 mins. We would have loved to stay longer to try even more of the activities in Massanutten and Shenandoah.

JMU Alumni Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Drake Lodge. We had three families staying there, so the size was perfect--we even had room to spare. The family with the kids stayed downstairs and each family had their own en suite bathroom. Drake Lodge is well equipped with everything you would need and everything was extremely clean. The view from the back deck is superb and we could even hear the music from the Octoberfest that was down near the ski lift. Bob is a pleasure to work with and made the reservation process very easy. We have recommended the place to our friends and will definitely stay there next time we are in Harrisonburg.

Fabulous home for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Drake Lodge for a weekend with extended family and had a great time! The house was perfect for us. The adults used the three bedrooms upstairs, and the kids slept downstairs - which was a great set up. The kitchen is very well equipped - definitely a chefs kitchen! We had everything that we needed to cook several meals all weekend - including a new gas grill on the deck. The home was very clean and updated - and the view from the back porch was amazing! We will definitely rent Drake Lodge again"
