Our Retreat is a vacation property located in the heart of Shenandoah Valley near the historic New Market Battlefield. Close to Bryce and Massanutten Resorts, Luray Cavern, vineyards, and only 1.5 hours from Northern Virginia. There is five acres of wooded and pastoral land for you to explore. It includes nature trails, streams, a fire pit, horse shoes, and more. Close to vineyards, antique shops and other attractions. UN-plug and relax. Our Retreat had bed accommodations for 6 (with a coach and pull-down chair that sleep two more). Equipped kitchen, billiard room, ping pong room, work out room, secluded picnic area, and library packed with books, board games, VHS tapes, and DVDs.
Cook up family meals, BBQ on the over-sized outdoor grill, and soak up the sunset from the private deck. Show your skill at a game of horseshoes. Relax beside the fire. Regenerate your spirits sitting on the bench beside Smith Creek.
I was born in New York, but grew up in the Shenandoah Valley. The area was great for raising children and always had a feeling of home. My husband and wanted a place to get away from it all and share with others. Having come from a Big City and working in Northern Virginia himself, he knew how relaxing and inspiring the country was. This is why we have opened "Our Retreat" for you to enjoy.
Georgi Kiser purchased this house in 2014
If you are looking to escape the hussle and bussle of a big city, or looking for quiet, quality family time, 'Our Retreat' in the Shenandoah Valley is for you!!!
Great mountain views. sunsets, trails, Smith Creek, games, books, and movies for all ages. Billiard table, ping pong, air hockey, picnic area, and horseshoes. Large, open and flowing Kitchen, living room and dinning room combination. Stainless steel refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and much more.
We very much enjoyed staying at "The Retreat". It was what we truly needed after the busy holiday. The house was homey with quilts. The family watched Dvds, played pool, Ping-Pong, and enjoyed watching sitting by the streams. We also enjoyed a picnic, as the owners where kind enough to supply a picnic basket.
The pantry was stocked, we had coffee and we had plenty of plates and glasses for the 8 of us.... there was china we didn't use (lol).
Will come back again.
The family loved the place. Great family time, something for everyone. That's just what you can do inside the house. Planning a trip back this summer to enjoy the things you can do outside. Thank you Georgi, great place
This home was clean and comfortable with a million dollar view. We enjoyed our girls' weekend and would love to come back !!!
this rental property met all of our expectations and provided a central point for all of our activities; Skyline Drive, Woodstock Tower, the Big Schloss, shopping in New Market and the surrounding towns. the rental was also central to the wedding venue/parties we attended. during our stay the mornings were foggy and the afternoons sunny. we spent an hour or more each evening watching the sunset from the backyard.
the owner has developed several trails around the property which can provide a pretty good workout. we also took advantage of the gym in the basement. there were plenty of towels and bedding for all guests.
we had a little trouble with the can opener so the owner dropped off a new one: pretty good response for such a small problem. also, the single serve coffee pot did not meet our morning needs so we purchased a cheap 10 cup coffee maker at Walmart. oh, and the master bath shower was a little tricky; you need to pull down on the on the ring where the water comes out of the bath tub spout to get water to the shower head.
The house was great in great condition. The owners were wonderful and very informative on local attractions. Wonderful views of stars, sunsets sun rises and creek scenery. I wish we could've planned to stay longer. We definitely will next time!
I treated my brother's family to an adventure in the shenandoah valley. Instead of booking a hotel I decided to check out vacation houses and found this wonderful place in New Market. It was awesome! My family had never stayed in a vacation home before and now we plan to make it a yearly tradition. Hopefully, we are able to come back to this house again every time. The house had everything we needed, including many games (board games, ping pong, pool, air hockey) for the kids (4 boys) and plenty of space for them to run around. It had everything needed in the kitchen, making it simple to cook and prepare nice treats for the BBQ that was also on site. There was a nice river on the edge of the property that we were able to swim in and let us not forget the incredible mountain views from the deck and wonderful sunsets to watch! Every night we finished off in front of the fire pit roasting smores and catching fireflies. They even provided the fire wood and smore sticks!! The house is located in a quiet location, very secluded, but still just a hop skip and a jump from many historical sites and the Luray caverns. Couldn't ask for a better place. The owners were also very nice and friendly and easy to reach by phone or text. And I had no issue with getting my full deposit back. Thanks again and again for the wonderful carefree vacation in your beautiful home. We hope to come again soon!
The dynamic area provides great opportunities for wildlife viewing, mountain biking or golfing. Pick up a book and enjoy a peaceful afternoon sitting by Smith Mountain Creek in our backyard.
