Had a wonderful time at Gabe's Getaway! The owners were great and accommodating and the animals on the farm brightened our day each morning. The BBQ and fire pit made our relaxing evenings just perfect. Will definitely be visiting again!

Fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay especially feeding the horses carrots! We loved the private deck and found the hosts very accommodating.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a neat place to stay near JMU or for a vacation in the Shenandoah valley.

Great stay , perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Gabe's Getaway with our two year old who loves farm animals. He had a blast brushing the horses, collecting chicken eggs and watching the adorable alpacas. The horses were some of the sweetest I've ever met. Valerie was an excellent host and gave us great recommendations for things to do in the area.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my kids loved our stay here during a school break! The one room apartment was nice and clean. My kids especially enjoyed going to collect eggs and feeding the horses carrots. Valerie had given us a bags of carrots just for that purpose. Another thing enjoyed by my kids was making s'mores over the open fire pit. We were able to do some hiking in the Shenandoah National Park and visited a cave and the civil war museum nearby. The only thing is the kitchen is rather small and not set up to be able to cook two things at once. Since my son has allergies, I ended up fixing his meal first and then my daughter's and my meal second. It is a beautiful and quiet place and we would definitely come back here. Thank you Valerie for making our stay enjoyable!

Our overall experience was nothing short of amazing thanks to Valerie and Brad. They thought of every detail to make the property one you'll mever forget. It was a pleasure meeting all of the animals and waking up to them each morning, nothing beats finishing your morning coffee and going to feed them. Thanks Valerie and Brad for a one of kind experience, we will definitely be back as soon as we can!
