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.

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

Very nice accomodations to spend a relaxing time with family

  • 4 of 5

This get-away was the first time in several years that we could arrange a time for our sons and their families to spend time together, with us, for a couple of days. Duke's Den appropriately provided that opportunity, at an affordable price. The open dining/living room area is large enough for family to eat, talk, and relax together. We spent time on the middle deck, playing games, reading, and watching wildlife. I actually saw a family of deer, grazing, quite close to the house. The pool and foosball tables were a hit with everyone who played. There were plenty of activities to participate in, around the area...We were at the pool alot!

There were a few things, about the home, that I wish might have been different...I did miss the presence of a potato peeler, as neither I nor my daughters-in-law have ever used a knife to peel. However, we adapted well and the potatoes turned out great. Other unexpected issues did not significantly affect our enjoyment of being together. In fact, we want to come here again and make a family get-together a yearly tradition. Next time, we want to stay for a full week!

Thank you for opening your property to us. We look forward to spending time there again next year!

During our brief 2 day stay, the accomodations were just what we were looking for. Nothing real fancy, just a great mountain getaway. I would recommend Dukes' Den to anyone!!!

We were very pleased with the house.

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for a great stay at Massanutten. The house was great in a lovely setting. Our grandchildren were pleased to have their own floor! We hiked the trail to White Oak Canyon Falls and then went to Luray on the way home. Next time we will take advantage of the fun activities at Massanutten.

Great Weekend getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time enjoying the area while staying at the Duke's Den! We loved the bedroom layout, it was like everyone had their own space and wasn't stepping on each other. The kitchen was a little tight at times and since its the main entrance was a bit congested. Wifi would've been great but the other amenities kept us busy. Thanks!
