I can send you a list of things to do prior to your stay. Just ask for it. Have a special request? Just ask! Want to surprise your loved one with a welcome basket, wine or fresh flowers? We may be able to help! Need Sheets and or Towels? I can provide for a $50 fee based on availability (includes sheets for all beds and towels. Beds may or may not be made depending on the busy season). Everything is almost brand new... clean, cozy.. lots of extra amenities added to the house such as toys, books, dvd's, vhs, games, PS3 and more! Everyone will have something to keep them busy! You will love it here. It's a gentle escape from the 9 to 5 life. Peace and quiet are included. Light pours into the house. It is relaxing and soothing. You will immediately feel comfortable and at home. Everything is clean and well kept.. I put in a lot of heart, sweat and tears getting this house ready for rent.

DECK / OUTSIDE has a seating area and propane grill. By the driveway there is a new firepit and four camp chairs! There is wood under the house and next to the house. The fire pit must be used in the driveway as the deck is too narrow and too close to the house. The chairs are stored inside.

2ND BEDROOM has a full bed and closet.

Cute, Clean, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This little place has everything you need for a little getaway. The grownups enjoyed watching movies while the kids played with the toys upstairs during the rainy first day of our trip. When the sun came out we were close to Luray, many farms with fresh foods, breweries, and many other attractions.

The house was very clean, and decorated in a cute style. We enjoyed making pancakes for the group on the big griddle, we grilled hamburgers out on the big wrap-around deck, and roasting marshmallows on the fire-pit. We probably over packed- plenty was provided by either the earlier guests or the owner, and the grocery store is well stocked and not a terribly long drive.
