Wonderful in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect little get away!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay here. The atmosphere was fabulous. We loved all the animals, enjoyed cooking out on the grill and relaxing on the deck. Our hosts were friendly and we learned a lot about the animals and the area. There were plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Highly recommend!!

A peacefully charming retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this trip was beautiful! The land, the animals, the entire stay was like something from an animal-lover's dream. Valerie and Brad are welcoming and friendly--they seem like family after our short stay! Our daughter adored the animals (and learning about them); we loved the tranquility and restful atmosphere at Gabe's Getaway. This was our family's favorite vacation. We hope to return soon!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

You won't meet two nicer people than the owners of this getaway. Brad and Valerie are unbelievably good people. They made us feel like part of their family. We enjoyed our stay immensely and plan to return when we are in the area again. Do yourself a favor and plan a visit to stay at Gabe's Getaway!!

Delightful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and we love it. The setting is quiet, peaceful and delightful on the property with horses, alpacas and chickens. The place is super clean and has everything you need, just as described. Valerie is a wonderful hostess and really goes out of her way to help you enjoy your stay. She gives you carrots to treat the horses, will make suggestions for activities and restaurants nearby. This is a wonderful base for Shenandoah Valley and we'll definitely be back. Thanks, Valerie!
