Perfect Secret Spot for a Weekend Getaway
The Nest feels like a spot out of a storybook - with all trappings of a home featured in architectural digest. It's no more than 20 minutes away from anything you could want to to in Shenandoah, but all the while feels like you have the view of the mountain all to yourself. There were hundred of butterflies and beautiful sunrises. Couldn't have picked a more perfect escape for my family.
What a gem!
The Nest is one of those rare finds... you know it’s going to be lovely based on photos and previous reviews but the reality is even better. The thought gone into the design and materials used, the fabulous breathtaking position over the valley, the abundant chairs inside and out to enjoy the views, have coffee and wine and relax, the thoughtful welcome treats, the bears wandering by shyly from a respectful distance .... lots of terrific experiences. We genuinely could not find fault! Superb stay and we wished it was longer.
A Fabulous Stay
We very much enjoyed our joint 30th anniversary celebration with dear friends. Oohed and awed over The Nest upon arrival. The mix of rustic and modern is perfect. The view is spectacular. Took some wonderful sunrise pics (but promptly went back to sleep in the comfy master bed). Enjoyed the hot tub Friday night and then the fire pit Saturday night. Master shower makes you feel like you are showering outdoors. Loved the upscale appliances. Never turned a TV on. It's supposedly a rare occurrence to see bears in Virginia...we were greeted by bears upon arrival on Friday (at a comfortable safe distance) and again by a cub in the driveway on Saturday. Thanks for a fantastic stay.
Gorgeous home/Beautiful setting
There's no way that pictures can do this home justice. It's absolutely beautiful and the scenery/view is stunning. One of our all time favorite places we've stayed.
The Nest is the absolutely stunning. It was everything I was looking for in a weekend getaway with friends! The home was beautiful and completely stocked with all the essentials. I would 100% recommend The Nest and will be back myself. Thank you, Julie!
By far one of my favorite places to stay. Breathtaking views, great little house & clean!
