About Martha

Two professional educators built this house for our family vacations and recently renovated it for our future retirement home. Our big granite kitchen and many amenities are your gain. Many of our renters come back year after year ( up to three generations). The house was named 'Niblick' by Martha's Scottish father. Niblick means 'short iron' because we are a short distance to two golf greens. Our location on the golf course gives us lovely unobstructed views of the GW National Forest mountain range for the ultimate mountain feel. The house has spurred many creative endeavors for us and groups we have served - as well as being a great place to just relax.

Martha purchased this chalet in 1976

Why Martha chose Basye-Bryce Mountain

Our chalet is close to the main lodge for skiers, bikers and golfers convenience. Bryce is a lovely four season ski resort and our home is updated with granite kitchen and great porches and a million dollar view. In summer watch the golfers from our hammock or screened porch. In winter you can walk to the ski lodge (7 minutes), golf shop, mini golf, rock wall, zip wire and bike course from our house (teens run back and forth). We are so central to the resort yet peacefully private - the best of both worlds. Short drive (1 mile) from Lake Laura for boating and swimming. We love the beautiful well maintained golf course as it winds through the view. Hiking in nearby George Washington National Forest. Only two hours from DC but feels like a world away. The Shenandoah Valley has so many places to explore.

What makes this chalet unique

The large glass windows help you enjoy the spectacular views from this house. Enjoy the jacuzzi tub, picnic on our screened porch or star gaze (amazing night sky). Not a more beautiful view in the whole resort from floor to ceiling windows. Separated bedrooms and spaciousness for two families or multiple generations. Two large flat screen TVs - one in each living area.

great house, fun weekend!

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great area and the views of the golf course are beautiful. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked. The owners seemed to have thought of every little thing you might need. Easy walk around the lake within a 5 minute drive. Enjoyed apple picking, cider tasting and Shenandoah caverns. Would recommend and hope to visit again soon!

Great view from the deck!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was very cute and comfortable. Love the view of the golf course and the mountains! Kitchen was well stocked and easy to work in. Spiral staircase was a surprise to get to the bottom floor, but we managed by putting the toddler on the first floor and keeping the door closed to the stairs. Family enjoyed walking on the road to the resort, mostly in the shade. Plenty of towels and blankets and beds were comfy.

Fantastic Meteor shower + Comfortable updated home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at Niblick. The views are gorgeous and the proximity to the lake makes this stay even more fun. Our first night there, it rained a lot but we still had so much fun playing games and hanging out inside the comfortable cottage. We were 7 people did not feel cramped at all. I highly recommend this cottage for weekend stays =).

Our second night was very clear and we were able to pile onto the deck and event the golf course below to watch the meteor shower. Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for letting us stay at Niblick!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you were able to see the meteor shower. We have often had young city guests who have commented that they never realized how many stars where in the sky! I am glad the star gazing deck worked well for you and that you enjoyed our game cabinet and hiking maps!

Cozy home with spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our stay at Niblick, and we had a wonderful time! The house is roomy, cozy, well-stocked, and has an amazing view. The beds were out of this world comfortable and we all slept so well. The home is close to all the action at Bryce Resort. We took a short walk along the beautiful green golf course and spent the day biking down the mountain at the Bryce Bike Park. The kitchen is well-stocked, and there are plenty of games/puzzles to keep everyone occupied. We hope to be back in the winter!

A peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Niblick, 11 Keith Place, Basye VA, for our second time in March of 2017. We had the same experience both times: The house is clean and well kept. You feel much more like you are in a friend’s home rather than in someone’s rental house….it has that warm and comfortable feel to it. The house itself is well planned with the living room and kitchen feeling like one large family room, and with the bedrooms down hallways where they are relatively insulated from any kitchen or TV noise. This spacious room has very large windows on two sides that provide a wonderful, panoramic view of the mountains, neighboring woods, and well-manicured golf course. Lounging in that room is serene if not addictive. The basement bedrooms feel like a cave and I mean that in the best of ways: cozy and quiet. Bryce Resort is peaceful and offers much to do all four seasons, though its selling point IS its peace and quiet….one quiet restaurant, a community store with gas, and lots of outdoor family activities. I hope it stays that way. The Niblick’s owner, Martha, is very accommodating, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. We are very much looking forward to our next stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. We aim to please and we LOVE our repeat guests. We hope "The Niblick" brings rest and repose to our guests in this busy and stressful world. The Valley and the Resort have always been just the right mix of peace and adventure for us. I am so glad you feel at home.
