About the property

Luxury log cabin in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Free WiFi

This cute log cabin is like a resort and we are proud to be "Virginia Green Certified". Easy year round access with a level ½ acre lot, enclosed private backyard and ample parking on the driveway.

Immaculate 1280 sq ft. home is literally a stone’s throw to a series of Civil War hiking trails and the George Washington National Forest hosting beautiful trout stocked streams and wildlife.

Ideally situated near the Shenandoah Valley’s top attractions, yet peaceful and quiet, hidden off the beaten path away from the crowds. Less than 2 miles from the Shenandoah River, minutes from Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, New Market Battlefields, Shenandoah National Park, wine tasting, Massanutten and Bryce resorts both offer year round activities; golf, skiing, water sports, indoor water park, zip lining, spa treatments and restaurants.

2 bedrooms with queen sized beds and 2 full spa like bathrooms. Fully stocked kitchen features high quality pots, pans, utensils, bake-ware, Crockpot, tea kettle, paper products, foil, plastic wrap and anything else you can think of.

Welcoming covered front porch overlooks a small flower garden, organic herb garden and a large grassy area with fruit trees.

Inside, beautiful furnishings throughout provide a comfortable, inviting space for you to kick back and hang out. The family room offers a large leather sofa, TV with DVD player and video library, free WiFi internet access and a rock faced gas fireplace perfect on a cold night.

End your day with a cocktail in the comfortable conversation area overlooking a large serene, enclosed backyard. Maybe do some barbequing and savor your meal while dining at the shaded picnic table. The 6 person hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a day exploring and offers incredible star gazing.

This is the perfect place to spend your vacation – quiet time alone or making memories with those you hold dear. That’s why we call it “The Great Escape”.

Bust free from the craze and enjoy!

About Linda & Bob Jarrell

The Great Escape Vacation Rentals is a small family business. We own and manage our own property to give our guests the very best experience all around. We appreciate your support and look forward to making your vacation unforgettable.

Linda & Bob Jarrell purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Linda & Bob Jarrell chose Shenandoah

We have traveled extensively and selected this property for its charm, location and offerings. We felt like this is a cabin that we'd enjoy staying at - and we kept that in mind throughout the process of preparing it for your stay! We want you to have a great time, be comfortable and feel well taken care of.

This cabin is the quintessential mountain home featuring cedar log siding and an amazingly peaceful, beautiful location. Built in 2009, the interior is stylish and current with decor that mirrors the season.

Located near everything, yet secluded, peaceful away from the crowds.

What makes this cabin unique

We own and manage our own property to give our guests the best experience possible. No hidden fees.

Walk to the national forest, trout fishing, historical Civil War trails. Conveniently located near many Shenandoah Valley attractions, but away from the crowds tucked into a quiet, established residential neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin is located literally two doors down from the George Washington National Forrest.



Bring your fishing gear and catch trout at Cub Run. It is located in the middle of everything you want to see. Minutes from Luray, Shenandoah, and Elkton. The cabin has an enclosed back yard that allows us to bring our schnauzers along.



Go fishing, take a canoe trip on the Shenandoah river, shop the many farmer's stores for fresh meat and vegetables, dine at the many local eateries, shop the local stores, and truly enjoy yourself. Grab some lamb sausage and cook them on the grill on the back deck while seeing every star in the sky that you can't see from the city living. Thanks Bob and Linda for creating memories for our family that we will always cherish.

A wonderful escape to a beautiful place in Virginia

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin..all the amenities you would need for a family or 2 couples. The cabin was so clean. We enjoyed the hot tub especially after skiing Masanutten.

I would highly recommend this cabin. The owners were wonderful to work with and always asked if there was anything we needed while we were staying at the cabin.

I only wished we could have stayed longer and explored the area and hiking trails nearby. We will definitely be back.

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

After a month long road trip we decided a few days break away from it all was in order. Upon seeing the photos of the cabin we knew it was the one.

Communication with the lovely owners was great and they simply couldn't be more helpful.

Within moments of arriving we felt at home. The roaring fire, comfy sofa and of course the hot tub.

We had a drive out to a Wallmart and stocked up with food and basically didn't leave for days, it was glorious.

Pretty, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well maintained. SUCH a nice treat in a week of below freezing weather, they even turned on a light dusting of snow for us on the last day! So warm and snuggly. There are a few other houses quite close, but it is about 100 meters away from the George Washington National Forest, so it still feels quite secluded. They have all the kitchen things you need, just make sure you bring literally everything you need to eat other than salt and pepper. Its only about 10/15 minutes from a supermarket though so you only forget cooking oil once! Best thing about it was absolutely the hot tub in the back yard. SOOOO nice! Especially on that snowy morning!

Beautiful home, warm, with all modern amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautifully done and spotless (though dogs are clearly welcome). The owners go out of their way to create a feeling of luxury in the mountains. We stayed over Christmas, and enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub, and Christmas tree.

Beautiful cabin in beautiful country

  • 5 of 5

Although this is a cabin, there is nothing rustic about it. It is nicely appointed and very clean. There is plenty of room for two couples to stay comfortably. We enjoyed home-cooked meals in the well-stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed the fireplace and the hot tub, which was very clean and looked new.

The owners are very nice people who ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I would stay here again and highly recommend.
