Stay at this ideally located five bedroom mountain home for the perfect vacation. You can relax on the double tiered deck with a cup of hot chocolate while looking out into the snow covered Shenandoah Valley National Forest. You can enjoy a few rounds of pool, foosball, or ping pong with your family and friends all at the comfort of your vacation home.
The home also features a gas grill and large fully-equipped kitchen to fit all of your culinary needs. Modern décor fills the house, and the newly renovated lower level adds to the comfort and style. It includes the play room, kitchenette, and a second master bedroom with 32' flat screen TV and private bathroom with a Jacuzzi. Both floors feature and 42” flat screen TV and plenty of space to sit back and take the night off.
With just a five minute drive to the slopes, water park, 2 golf courses, go-karts, mini-golf and other attractions, this house is a vacationer’s dream. Come here for a family reunion, with a group of friends, or for a romantic getaway. This place will be exactly what you are looking for.
Rooms were clean. Kitchen was nice to cook in. Having the washer and dryer was a huge plus for our winter retreat.
Issues were floors were too squeaky, the pool table and its equipment were in HORRIBLE condition, except for the racks. Ping pong equipment was just bad, and they must be replaced, but the table was nice.
Absolute Retreat is located inside the gates of Massanutten Resort. Actual house can be a little difficult to find for the first time at night. Recommend to plan to arrive in the daylight. Very spacious with pool table, foosball and ping pong. Updated TV's , good satelite TV and good wi fi. Nice kitchen and large table . Washer dryer. Two car garage is used for Ping Pong so no indoor parking . Driveway holds four cars. Loads of activities all year round as well as restaurants and shopping within a 20 minute ride.
My suggestions for improve ment are two:
It is somewhat diappointing to arrive and you and all your guests find all the sheets rolled in a ball on each bed. We were warned to bring toiletries and towels, but blankets were scarce.
Secondly the grill on the back porch was shot. It once was a very nice grill but two of the three burners are rusted out and now presents a fire hazard. Our cook out plans were easily switched to the oven,
Overall, I highly recommend the Absolute Retreat. I can tell by the thoughtfull way the owners have organized the place , the owners will have addressed these minor problems before you book this great getaway home.
We had a great time celebrating my dad's 60th birthday, it was perfect! This rental had one of the nicest stocked kitchens yet! There was plenty of room for lots of different activities. This house was clean and organized to fit a large group of people. The kitchenette in the basement actually came in handy. We were able to come a little early which helped for organizing the surprise! Thank you Lee! We had a great time. We will rent here again.......... and again!
The house is maintained very well. It's spacious and in great location. We would definitely stay here again.
We were two families with 5 little kids between us traveling to Massanutten for the first time. I was drawn to Alex's home for three major reasons--lots of bedrooms, a long dining table that would fit all of us and access to a local pool. Not many listings seemed to offer that last option in particular.
The house is uncluttered and the furniture is not untouchable--that's a plus for me traveling with kids!
Had no problems with the kitchen or having enough hot water...
Definitely remember towels--a bit unusual to need to bring those--and slow down when you are looking for the house. A sign in the yard would be beneficial. It's easy to miss.
We had a great time the whole weekend and Alex and Lee, the property manager, were very pleasant to deal with--a major plus when you're someplace new with kids depending on you.
We go to Massanutten every year and this trip is by far the best. The house was very clean and enough room to accommodate 14 people. It was close to all the outdoor attractions. The house layout was perfect. The billiards, foosball, and ping pong table kept the kids entertained. The kitchen was fully furnished to make any meal. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating. I DEFINITELY recommend this house to anyone.
