McGaheysville House Rental Photos and Description

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.

nice large house, good location, uncomfortable beds

  • 3 of 5

Nice house, large with lots of room and decks to hang out on. Stay was marred by a power outage that left the fridge unpowered and wifi out. Owners were easily accessible and worked hard to resolve and come to an amicable outcome.

Location close to pool(s), go karts, zip line etc.

Minimal dining options in the resort.

Beds were the only negative for this stay. Plastic wrapped and uncomfortable. Kids fought over the couch to sleep on. Maybe ok if you ski all day

Love this home a lot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house for a couple of nights during the visit to Massanuttan water park. This was our first ever experience in renting a house. We didn't have to contact the owner for anything, all instructions were very clear. All of us liked this trip a lot especially the stay at this house. The house is very close to the water park, Go Kart, Family Adventure Park etc. We are coming back to this house for our next vacation for sure. Hopefully, next time we can spend some time at the gorgeous deck(s) and may be do some grilling too.

Nice house, very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

After entering the house for the first time and looking around, my son immediately commented that this was the best rental house he has stayed in. Lots of room, more than it appears from the photos. Very well equipped with all needed supplies in kitchen and bathroom: paper products, soaps, detergents, coffee filters, etc. Even a gallon of water for the coffee maker and a basket in the bathroom with toiletries you may have forgotten to pack. Large kitchen, large table in dining area, comfortable living room. Great views of the slopes. Drive to base lodge for skiing is 3/4 mile but parking was easy and reasonably close to slopes.

Our stay was amazing. For the first time that we have ever done this, it went flawless. The house was decorated for Christmas and everything was perfect. Although it did not snow while we were there, we still found a lot of stuff to do with our children. This was a trip that none of us will ever forget We will definitely be doing this again!!

Very nice house, perfectly maintained

  • 5 of 5

We were three families staying for 3 days, and even without snow (due to the warm weather ) we have spent a wonderful time in the house and the area.

The rooms don't look big on the pictures, but they are pretty nice and there is enough space for the kids and the adults.

Very nice house for a reasonable price!

We stayed in this home at the end of July and had a wonderful time. The home was very spacious, clean , and kid friendly. Home is larger than it appears and the owner was wonderful. We enjoyed many activities (horseback riding, pools, fishing, hiking, and kids rock climbed) and it was a great location.
