Kelly McGrory purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Kelly McGrory chose Stanardsville
We chose to purchase this property, with hopes that we would relocate to the Charlottesville, VA area for its outdoor lifestyle. Our jobs keep us in Pennsylvania, but we enjoy 6-7 trips to Romance Ridge per year to take in the beauty and serenity of the mountains and hike the trails in the Shenandoah National Park.
What makes this Cabin unique
Romance Ridge is located at the doorstep of the Shenandoah National Park, and is equidistant between University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and James Madison University in Harrisonburg. With two ski resorts close by at Masannutten and Wintergreen, it's not easy to choose! Luray Caverns is an easy day trip. There are numerous, breweries and vineyards in the area, along with antique shoppes, wildlife management areas, and country roads to explore and take in the undeveloped scenery. The Shenandoah Valley is rich with history, from Civil War trails to James Madison's Monticello, James Monroe's Ash Lawn, and James Madison's Montpelier. No matter your destination, we are sure you will enjoy the peace, solitude, and serenity of the cabin itself. Enjoy your stay!

Perfect Romantic Getaway for Two!
We can’t wait to come back. The pictures don’t do this cabin justice. It truly is perfect for a romantic getaway with a wood burning fireplace you can enjoy from the kitchen table, couch or bed. And the bed... wow. Crazy comfy mattress. From the personalized welcome note when we walked in the door, to the new fluffy towels and comfy sheets and pillows, to the piles and piles of firewood, a hot tub with gorgeous views, a nice kitchen and bath, and trees surrounding the cabin, Romance Ridge was exactly what we wanted. It was very private and had everything we needed right there. Little touches, like the matching robes, magazines and a notebook of information about things to do it the area just bumped it to a higher score from us. There are things like hooks throughout the cabin where you need them, sharp knives for cooking, lots of throw blankets to snuggle under and rockers on the back porch. This cabin is, for us, the perfect romantic getaway.
MIchelle, thank you for sharing your experience at Romance Ridge! It is our goal to ensure the guest is experience is just as you have described! You are most welcome to return to the cabin any time. We do hope you can make it for a visit again in the future!
Everything you need to relax and enjoy the mountains!
We really enjoyed our stay here. We were looking for a secluded mountain get-away and this was perfect! The cabin was very clean and had everything in it we needed to have a restful stay. We loved having our meals out on the upper deck where you could hear the trees and the stream below. We even got to see a rather large, beautiful black bear walking through the side yard and a juvenile playing in the woods. It was about a 20-minute drive to the Shenandoah National Park entrance; and after long days of hiking and sight-seeing, the hot tub was the perfect way to relax in the evening. We would definitely stay here again!
Great place. Everything was well maintained and clean. Beautiful piece of property. Enjoyed our stay there.
The cabin is perfect for two people, excellent condition and appointments.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay, a Friday evening through the following Tuesday morning. The location is excellent with a wonderful view. Hopt tub on the back deck with a view - the weather was too warm to think about getting in. Only 20 minutes to Skyline Drive and many opportunities for hiking and sightseeing. Not too far from the Loge at Big Meadows, that serves L&D with a spectacular view of the valley. Highly recommend the Hightop Mountain Trail, just south of the Swift Run Gap Entrance Station. Comfortable bed, and great A/C.
Very attractive and comfortable.
Little cabin in the woods
We literally drove through the storm to get here and it was well worth the trip. Kelly was on top of making sure roads to the cabin were open. They were, and we got there. There were three big wash out ruts we had to get through, but our Kia Soul did fine and the road was ok other than that. Since it's a county road, it will be repaired soon. Romance Ridge is a great getaway place. We only left it one day to do the Skyline Drive as it was hard to get off the deck or out of the hot tub. Charm, log cabin elegance, peaceful setting and natural beauty are all part of the ambiance of this cabin.

Additional information about rental rates
Turkey Ridge Road is a state maintained dirt road. While not necessary to drive an all-wheel vehicle, it may be easier in inclement winter weather. There are black bear who inhabit this area of Virginia. Please do not leave food or trash outside the cabin, as this will attract various pests from the woods. While black bears are an exciting siting, we do not wish to create a pest environment.
