Wonderful in every way!!
The hospitality that Valerie and Brad showed our family was second to none. The time spent with all of the animals (horses, alpacas, dogs, chickens) are memories that our family will cherish always. My daughters only wished we lived closer so that they could ask for a summer job taking care of the animals. We loved grilling dinner, sitting around the fire, and toasting marshmallows and making smores. The suggestions that Valerie provided us each day for what we wanted to do was also spot on. Great recommendations for food/activities. Valerie and Brad offer a very unique experience sharing their love of the surrounding area, their property, and of course their animals which are absolutely members of their family. Thank you again for your friendship and for a wonderful stay. My family and I can't wait to return!
Meeting wonderful people like you guys has been such a blessing to Brad and I. We look forward to your return!
We had a wonderful time. The apartment had everything we needed and we slept so well. We loved waking up in the morning to the animals. Valerie and Brad were amazing hosts and seemed to think of everything. We hope to go again soon.
We were so glad you got to relax! Look forward to seeing you again!
Our family really enjoyed staying here.
Valerie really knew so much and we enjoyed talking with her; our kids too. This barn is adorable and the animals are lots of fun to watch.
Wonderful & welcoming!
Everything was just as the description, pictures and reviews promised it would be. Apartment was inviting, clean and beautifully decorated. We loved getting to know all the animals, feeding them and collecting eggs. You feel like you’re “out in the middle of nowhere” but actually no more than a 15-30 minute drive from where we wanted to go (Skyline Drive, SNP, Luray Caverns, wineries and horseback riding). Valerie was generous and kind to my 3 daughters and I. Hope to be back soon!
It was wonderful meeting you. You have wonderful daughters. Wishing each many blessings in the future! Come stay again!
Tranquil, clean and relaxing.
Had the best time with awesome hosts. Them being D.C. sports fans, like me, was icing on the cake. Close to alot of attractions and good restaurants. They will see us again!
We enjoyed our stay at Gabe's Getaway. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was available and the bed was particularly comfy. It was a lot of fun to meet all the animals and Valerie and Brad were kind enough to spend time introducing us to the animals and telling us a little about them. We especially loved being able to sit outside at night on the attached deck and watch the stars.
So glad you were able to enjoy and relax!

New market battle field, endless caverns, luray caverns, shenandoah caverns, grand caverns, cross keys vineyard, blue stone vineyard, shenandoah vineyard, barren ridge vineyard, white oak lavender farm, luray reptile center, back home on the farm (corn maze, pumpkin patch), skyline drive, skiing (massanutten and bryce), golfing (shenvalee, pack saddle, heritage oaks, and lake view), james madison university, bridgewater college, eastern mennonite university, and much much more!
