We just got back from a family Thanksgiving at Mountain View Pond cabin where we had a wonderful time! The location was very convenient to us from the DC metro area. The cabin was warm and welcoming with everything provided to make our stay comfortable. And I can't say enough about how helpful Bernie, the Property Manager, was. He was very patient in answering my many, many questions in preparation for spending Thanksgiving away from home. The kitchen was so well stocked we really had to bring very few items from home.
The only additional comment I have is that while the cabin does have satellite TV, the majority of the channels were shopping networks, cartoons and a few news and sports channels. They did also have a nice selection of DVDs, but if you have a TV addict in your group, they might be a little disappointed in the offerings.
The Mountain View Pond cabin was perfect for a romantic long weekend. The drive to get up to the cabin is a little bit rough and very bumpy. It would help to have a four wheel drive, but our front wheel drive car got up and down the road just fine (of course, it wasn't raining or snowing while we were there either). The view of the pond and the mountains is just lovely. Although it is close to other cabins, the area is quiet and peaceful. There was a bird feeder on the deck so we bought seed while we were in town. So much fun to watch once the birds found it! The cabin is close to Luray so there is plenty to see and do, even in the late Autumn. The only minor quibble we had was that the gas log fireplace pilot just wouldn't stay lit. We were able to enjoy it for one night at least. The manager made a valiant effort to try to fix it for us though.
Whether it is your vacation, romantic weekend, family or otherwise reunion or a just a spur of the moment getaway, this location and our deals would be hard to beat. Located in the George Washington National Forest, this cabin is just about 6 miles down a 14 mile dead end road that winds along the Shenandoah River and is in walking distance to the river outfitters (the only business down this road). From the outfitters you may rent canoes, kayaks, tubes and rafts. They will also drop you off and pick you up at the point you desire. This point being how long you wish to be on the river, from a couple of hours to all day. There are also several public access points to the river for your use whether it is canoeing, swimming, hiking or fishing or hunting. Please don't hesitate to contact us for the best access areas for each activity, as there is 1 access point that is better for swimming, especially if your dog likes to swim and others depending on the time of year due to water levels. These accesses are open year around and offer just about the best wild turkey and deer hunting locations in Virginia.
The closest river access to this cabin is less than 1 minute by car. There is also a public lake with trail and fishing less than a minute away. located 10 miles back to the town of Luray. The unforgettable and must see Luray Caverns, The Luray Caverns Maze and Singing Tower, the charm of Main Street and all it has to offer such as restaurants, local shops and antiquing. Enjoy Luray’s walking tour of painted murals as you stroll the Luray Greenway along the Hawksbill Creek, where you will also find many places to rest, fish for trout, feed the ducks or just cool your feet. There are several other caverns to explore just a few miles from any direction. Luray and surrounding areas are a dream comes true for civil war buffs as there are endless civil war trails and monuments with access to view and read. Another 12 miles from Luray brings you to the Thorton Gap entrance of the famous Shenandoah National Park and the breathtaking Skyline Drive! Shenandoah National Park has over 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Some trails lead to a waterfall or viewpoint; others penetrate deep into the forest and wilderness. With such an abundance of trail options you will certainly be able to find something to fit your interest and ability. The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. It takes about three to 4 hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day. The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long. In early spring you can see trillium peeking through the grass. June's display of azaleas is spectacular, and cardinal flower, black-eyed susans, and goldenrod keep the color coming right into fall. Deer, black bear, wild turkey, and a host of other woodland animals call Shenandoah home and regularly cross Skyline Drive in their daily travels. Watch carefully for these animals that may dart across your path without warning. At 35 mph, you'll stand the best chance of a fun and exciting wildlife encounter rather than an unpleasant wildlife experience! What else could there be/ What to do when you’re not relaxing in the gazebo, eating on the deck, Or basking in front of a warm fire? Fish from the shore of the pond below the cabin, just a few steps from the gazebo and barbecue deck! Fish for trout, and bass and various other fish. Fish on the incomparable Shenandoah River!
