SmileInn sits on 3 acres of property along the river with almost 400 feet of river frontage in the heart of Shenandoah Valley. The cabin sits near the end of a gravel road which we call cabin ally. The nice thing about that it is beyond all the traffic, noise and dust of the buses transporting people back and forth all day to various locations for tubing, kayaking and canoeing. The downside about that its just a little further to drive (almost 8 miles on a gravel road). It is almost 30 minutes to town. You are still within reach of enjoying everything Luray and the Shenandoah Valley has to offer. You can also just stay home, relax in the hammock and enjoy the peace and quiet of the river.
The cabin sleeps 6 comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms and a loft. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, the upstairs bedroom has 2 double beds and a half bath in it. There is a loft outside the upstairs bedroom with a futon. The bathroom on the first floor is divided into two separate rooms next to each other. One includes the toilet and vanity sink, the other is a walk in shower and whirlpool bathtub. This makes it more user friendly to families and groups of people. The kitchen has all new appliances as well as a microwave, toaster, blender and combination coffeemaker. The dining area seats six and also leads out to the screened in porch with another table. There is an open deck area outside the screened porch with another large table and a propane gas grill. The living room area has a sofa with 2 sides that recline and also a separate reclining chair all situated around the gas fireplace. The long front porch has a porch swing and additional seating.
Down by the river we have a fire pit with an unlimited supply of firewood for your campfires. We also have a hammock and a picnic table. There is a set of stairs we have put in to make access into the river easier from the bank. We supply a canoe and 6 river tubes for our guests to use. We also have several outdoor yard games including horse shoes and corn hole boards.
All the amenities of home are provided such as Wi-Fi, DIRECTV, DVD player and phone service with nationwide long distance included.
The area below the cabin along the river is perfect if you are planning a small event or family gathering. There is also plenty of room to set up tents if your kids or you want to have the full camping experience by the river yet still be close to the conveniences of home. There is an access road that runs along the bottom of the hill below the cabin. You can access that from the road about a 1/4 mile past the cabin. You can drive vehicles on that if you have someone that can't make the walk from the cabin down to the river or if you want to transport supplies for a cookout or any water sports.
The drive into town and the nearest grocery store is about 30 minutes so you may want to stock up on food and preplan your meals to avoid unnecessary trips to the store.
The historic town of Luray, Luray Caverns, Lake Arrowhead and Jellystone Park are about a half hour drive. Shenandoah National Park including the entrance to Skyline Drive, Wisteria Vineyard, and New Market Battlefield are about an hour drive. The cabin is located at the base of Massanutten Mountain and borders the George Washington National Forest. There are hiking trails nearby which include the Habron Gap Trail and Indian Grave Ridge Trail. There are many more trails located along Massanutten and also in Shenandoah National Park.
