About Laurie & Randy Thompson

My wife and I are residents of Virginia Beach where we have raised 3 children. I grew up in the Valley and attended JMU so this mountain home gives us the perfect opportunity to 'come home.' That's why we decided on the name, 'Duke's Den.' All the school flags in the gameroom represent the schools our children have attended (and some still attending) but you'll notice that JMU dominates the decor.

Laurie & Randy Thompson purchased this house in 2011

Why Laurie & Randy Thompson chose Shenandoah Valley

My wife discovered this home for sale during a JMU Homecoming a few years ago. At the time, our son was attending and playing football for nearby Bridgewater College. This seemed like an ideal place for us to realize a long-held dream to find property in the area. We used it as a home base for his home games and now enjoy coming up to attend JMU games. I wish we had 'before' pictures to share, but picture a lot of orange shag carpet and dark paneling. The renovation was about a 4 month process but we think the results were worth it.

What makes this house unique

The location near the top of the mountain is unbeatable. The open floor plan is very conducive for friends and families to congregate at the large granite counter/bar that opens to the great room and stone fireplace. Great amenities at the property and very convenient to 4 seasons of area activities.

Cozy little get away

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3 days at the Duke's Den. Nice to have a fully stocked kitchen. Home was comfortable and easy to get to. All appliances worked well - however, the dishwasher needs to be mounted better; it tends to lean forward when putting dishes in. Beds were comfortable and clean. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality Randy & Laura!!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Close to slopes. 3-levels so that there was plenty of space. Hot tub was perfect. Parking was excellent - did not have steep driveway to mess with.

Fun Family Weekend

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Enjoyed many resort amenities. Property could use a little TLC - pool table in poor condition, some towel racks too loose for us to be comfortable using. Parking was tight for 3 vehicles but house had plenty of room for 3 families. Overall an enjoyable weekend with family in a beautiful mountain resort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you stay and your feedback. They truly are appreciated. We are addressing any loose towed racks this week and have secured a new pool table for replacement. We're planning on bringing it up the weekend of September 30th. Thank you, Randy & Laurie
