We grew up in the Shenandoah Valley, making this our home. Valerie is a retired teacher from Rockingham County, Brad continues to work in finance at a law firm in Washington DC. We raised 3 children and we are currently enjoying our grandchildren. Sports is a common passion of ours.
Valerie Mayes purchased this apartment in 2011
As lifelong residents of the Shenandoah Valley, we are living our dream of residing in the Valley and sharing our home with our beloved 4 legged friends (horses, dogs, an alpacas)
and two legged ones (chickens)

Great drive in to the farmlands of Virginia to arrive at a perfect destination spot. The retreat was exactly what we were wanting even with a little bit of business ruining part of one day. Val and all of her 4 legged family members were there for our every need from walking in late the first night and leaving the long driveway on the day we left. It was a home away from home. We just couldn't get Cusko in the back of the Jeep. Maybe next time. Hope to see them all again real soon. We took advantage of the grill and fire pit and some smores. Everything is there for you. will not hesitate in returning. Thanks for a great long weekend!
My husband and I LOVED our weekend at Gabe's Getaway. Sipping hot chocolate after feeding carrots to the horses. Checking the chicken coop for fresh eggs and then cooking them. Visiting the newest animals, the alpacas. All of it, priceless! Valerie and Brad are fantastic hosts. The "barnpartment" is cozy and comfortable. And the quiet is lovely. We watched a couple of movies from the collection in the cabinet. There is just something so special about the place, the animals, and the people that will keep us coming back in the future.
Owners were very nice. Provided carrots to feed the horses. Will come back again.
We had a really relaxing time! We loved the horses and the cozy accommodations! Our boys enjoyed it as well. The wifi was a plus! We went to Crosskeys Vineyard for lunch. Great place.We played Yahtzee and ordered pizza for dinner. We woke up to see the horses outside our window. Our boys enjoyed the hot chocolate and marshmallows Brad and Valerie supplied. They thought of everything!
The property overall was beautiful. It was so great to wake up and see the horses every morning
What a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world! Definitely would recommend to our friends and family. The "barn" apartment was perfect for us (and exactly as shown/described on the website) and located in a perfect location to see the area. We loved getting to know the horses... our daughter would have stayed, if we allowed it! Valerie and her husband are very generous hosts- helpful, friendly, and very accommodating. We can't wait to come back!
