Overview

About the property

4 Br, 3 Full Ba, 2 Decks, Screened Porch, Mountain/ski Slope Views

Location, location, location!!!!

Lovely home located in the massanutten 4 seasons resort in the beautiful shenandoah valley situated near the top of the area known as the 'kettle.' close to the ski slopes, pool, go carts, restaurant, golf course, arcade/gym, and miniature golf yet secluded enough away on the mountainside. This home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, kitchen with a huge island, bar height dining table that seats ten. It also features a game room with a pellet stove for those cold winter nights. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the bright morning sun rising above the valley on the back deck and a cocktail in the evening on the side deck while enjoying the wonderful views of the ski slopes and mountain ridge lines. Relax together on a warm summer night on the comfortable patio furniture in the screened- in porch. Prepare a delightful dinner and eat it out on the back deck which has ample table/chairs and a barbecue grill. For those less than ideal weather days there are books and board games for adults/children and an air hockey table. The children will have fun with the over-sized checkers game. The master bedroom has a 40' flat screen tv, views of the ski slopes and access to the side deck. The downstairs bedroom will appeal to the kids having 2 twin beds, bunk beds, private bath, and lots of floor space to play. There is a huge attached garage that can easily park 2 cars and 2 separate driveways for off street parking for family and friends.

Come on over, we'll be glad to accommodate you.

About owner/manager

Loretta and Rick currently live in central New Jersey where we both grew up.

owner/manager purchased this house in 2012

Why owner/manager chose Shenandoah Valley

We thought that the Shenandoah Valley was a beautiful place to live with Massanutten being in the center of it all. It is a half days drive from NJ and even less time from other cities such as Baltimore and Washington DC. We want to open up our home to vacationers so that they can share all of the beauty and activities that Massanutten has to offer.

Perfect JMU Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We started exploring different options when making plans to attend Jmu graduation for my family of 7 a year in advance. I was not going to pay $200 + / day for just one room at the Days Inn (!)

How grateful we are that we booked this wonderful home for 3 nights over graduation weekend! We avoided the crowds in Harrisonburg and had a mini vacation as well.

The layout of the house is so inviting and my parents in their 80's navigated the home with ease. The kitchen is big and spacious and well marked with every kind of gadget and appliance you could possibly need.

My kids loved sleeping in the cool bunk room in the basement with its own bathroom and game room beside.

The garage is a real plus with the heavy rain we experienced all weekend long.

And finally and most importantly, the house was very CLEAN. (I've stayed at many rental properties over the years and wonder why I need to pay a cleaning fee when I am doubting if the sheets have even been washed ...) Many rental homes appear neat and tidy but never really clean. This house is truly clean and fresh!

I realize most folks book these homes for winter ski trips but this house is a great place to book any time of the year.

Welcoming Atmosphere - Wonderful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This well laid out home is welcoming and more than accommodating with spacious kitchen, dining, and family room. It has a "home away from home" feel the moment you walk through the door. As others have commented, the photo's do not do it justice. We found everything clean and in order when we arrived with ample instructions regarding use of the home.

The basement with it's 3 bunk beds, tv and video games was the perfect retreat for our son and his friends...and we enjoyed them retreating there ;) The views are lovely and the exterior landscaping is well maintained.

Located just minutes from the slopes, dining, and other activities makes it easy to get around. The resort itself offers a variety of activities in all seasons, which is a plus.

The owners are friendly and helpful. We definitely would stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for the comfort of home in a vacation rental.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. We had three families and had plenty of room. The kids loved the downstairs bunk set up. On the resort so easy access to Massanutten ski hills. Great find for a very reasonable price. We'll definitely book this one again.

Fantastic fall football weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! Great layout with plenty of space. We loved the open floor plan for the kitchen dining and living rooms. Could not have had a more perfect home for three couples and a few young adult children. Would definitely stay here again!!!!
