We had a lovely 2 night stay at the cabin. Communication with hosts was a breeze, WiFi strong, gas grill perfect, everything you could need to fix meals there and just enjoy the lovely setting, but also only about 15 minutes from Front Royal, Shenandoah park hikes, river tubing/kayaking, restaurants, historical spots, and more. Really enjoyed our stay—especially sitting on the porch at night watching fireflies! Everything was clean and just as listed. We have already recommended to family in the area for a weekend couple’s getaway! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Great little cabin in a wonderful location!
We had a great time staying here! Loved sitting on the porch and watching the thunderstorm one evening, saw a deer the next, and it was so close to the trails in the Shenandoah. Such a lovely place to celebrate our 35th anniversary!
Cute and Cozy Cottage
This cute cottage was a convenient place to stay while visiting Shenandoah National Park. Had everything we needed (except toilet paper). Be aware that the bed is small.
Cozy, quaint, & beautifully appointed
Was easy, effortless & enjoyable to set up, and we could not have been happier when we arrived: Great location, wooded area around the cabin and an adorable, comfy setup inside.
My husband and I stayed here as a little trip for our anniversary. We really enjoyed our stay and the cabin was just perfect for our getaway. It was a short walk to the Appalachian Trail so we took a hike to Compton Peak. It was a great hike with wonderful views. The cottage is very quiet and peaceful. We hope to go back in the fall.
Second time back
We live in D.C. and this is the second time we've stayed at this cabin to have a short weekend away. Great hiking on the App Trail and several great wineries very close. Recommend eating at Griffin Tavern.
