Blue Ridge Mountain Retreat with Hot Tub & Amazing Shenandoah Valley View

2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin in woods w/ awe inspiring view of the Shenandoah Valley

Welcome to Rainbow View Cabin, less than an hour from the DC beltway in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA with magnificent views overlooking the Shenandoah Valley! Enjoy remote solitude just 9 miles from the historic village of Front Royal. Get away to another world of stress-free country living.

(And at an elevation of 1,738 feet it's always 10-15 degrees cooler than the city!).

If Rainbow View is booked or you need a 3BR, please see our other cabin - Valley Vista, listing 906064.

                                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                        Warren County Conditional Use Permit 1012-10-01

There are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen (including icemaker, coffee maker & grinder, microwave, crock-pot, etc.), a washer/dryer, and fireplace*. Linens, towels and soap are providedǂ. All you need to bring is your food and clothes.

On the large deck, enjoy the hot tub and fire cauldron (wood supplied) with tables and chairs, and both gas and charcoal grills. (Charcoal is not supplied, but is usually left behind by previous guests.)

Convenient to local wineries, caverns, Shenandoah River and Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive.

We are a hands-on operation, living only 1/4 mile away, so your experience here will feel a bit more personal than at a typical vacation rental. We enjoy providing our guests with a special experience and hope that you'll appreciate the idyllic setting and all the little extras offered.

Self check-in time: anytime after 4 PM / Check-out time: anytime before 11 AM

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:

The last mile of road is gravel. Check our website for a video.

We welcome well behaved dogs. There is a $30 pet fee. We are sorry that we had to implement this fee, but people were not abiding by the previous policy. If you don't advise and pre-pay for pets, we will deduct the fee during the refund of your security deposit. Be advised that there is a county-wide leash law.

We welcome well behaved children.

You should note however that the environment is not particularly conducive to small children's enjoyment. There's no lawned yard to play in, the terrain is very steep and rocky, and the woods has poison ivy and snakes. Inside and on the deck we have not addressed any child safety issues as we have no experience in that regard and it's not been our focus clientele. There is no community playground, and the youngest kids in the neighborhood are of junior high age. The community lakes have no beaches, lifeguards, or restrooms. The closest playground is about 12 miles from the cabin in Front Royal .

Motorcycles are welcome, but even though neighbors on the road have them, every guest who has brought one has complained about the road, so just be advised.

In winter 4WD or AWD may be required. The County is diligent in plowing, but roads can remain icy long after a storm. VRBO offers trip insurance. Enterprise in Front Royal has RAV4s for $70/day. In the event the road is impassible even for 4WD, rescheduling is allowed for available dates of equal value. (We live on the same road so we can keep you advised of current conditions.)

ATVs, discharging firearms, outdoor fires before 4 PM, and disturbing noise after 10 PM are prohibited by various ordinances and covenants.

* Fireplace is for ambiance only. Continual use will cause bedrooms to become cold. It is for burning Duraflame-type logs only, and only one at a time. During cold weather, one log (a 3 hour burn) is furnished for each day of your stay. For a longer burn than that you should bring your own.

(Due to past issues, burning regular wood is allowed only in the cauldron on the deck. Filling the cabin with smoke may result in your security deposit being withheld.)

ǂThere is no extra charge for the number of guests (max 4), but we supply the cabin for your visit based on the number you tell us will be coming.

We do offer a 10% discount to active duty military and retirees. Please advise us at the time of your request and please be honest about your status. We have had issues in the past.

Please access and like our Facebook page - Rainbow View Cabin - as that is where we post info about local restaurants specials, events, info about Shenandoah Park and any discounts we are offering on the cabin.

********* Much to our dismay, VRBO / HomeAway has recently instituted a policy of charging guests a hefty 9% "service fee". We do not approve of this practice and are contemplating cancelling our listing. They claim they are providing added value to the traveler in terms of security. So far it has merely resulted in decreased bookings, as travelers are evidently boycotting VRBO / HomeAway. *********

About Steve & Chris

We live just down the road a piece.

Steve & Chris purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Steve & Chris chose Shenandoah Valley

We've lived in this little rural mountain community for 30 years, and we've long admired the view from this particular property, so when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we jumped at the chance!

What makes this cabin unique

From the world's largest concentration of wild trillium to the abundant wildlife, whether sledding the hills, or just whiling away a lazy afternoon at the winery, we always enjoy each and every day on this mountain. Now you can also enjoy the view from the expanded deck and the hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for all the thoughtful things you had that we forgot and everything you had ready for the stay. Beautiful, awesome view, home décor, hot tub. Just perfect home away from home.

We Love Rainbow View Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure to stay in your cabin with our son who was vacationing here. We were astonished at his beautiful home that was made available to us. It was immaculately clean, well kept and lavishly equipped.

We have already talked to our friends about this cabin and plan to spread the around among our family and other friends. We will recommend this place to anyone. Anyone contemplating to stay in Rainbow View Cabin and want a referral from me can get in touch with the property owner for my contact information

Great Place to Spend a Long Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rainbow View, and it was just as great as our first experience! We were greeted with a bottle of wine, a personalized note and treats for our dog!

There were a few upgrades like a screen door and a sliding pet door (my favorite) on the deck allowing our dog to sniff around freely while we enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders (already filled upon our arrival). During our three day stay, we visited Sky Meadows State Park in Delaplane with great trails for mountain viewing as well as trekking through the woods. It was a bit of a drive, (about 30 mins) but a very scenic one. We also visited Eastham Park in Front Royal, shorter drive and they have a huge dog park as well as a nice trail along the Shenandoah River. We found the very organized "wall of local information" in the dining room extremely helpful in finding both parks.

On the only very rainy day, we enjoyed watching movies (many available via cable/Roku etc...) and playing some of the many provided board and card games.

Overall, the house was very clean and super dog-friendly with food and water bowls available. We will be coming back for sure and definitely recommend this cabin to both dog owners and non-dog owners alike!

A delightful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend Rainbow View enough-- the cabin is just close enough to the DC area to be convenient, but just far enough away to be fully appreciate the natural beauty of the area. The view from the cabin is spectacular, whether from the kitchen, the deck, or the hot tub (!). Plenty to do nearby, no matter what you're into. And best of all, it's clear that the owners put a lot of love into their property-- everything is well maintained and well appointed. Need a walking stick for a trail? A flashlight? Wonder where the best antique shops are? Want to go zip lining? Did you forget an umbrella? Want another pillow? It's all here, so it's that much easier to just sit back and relax. Fabulous. Definitely hope to return again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are glad that you had a great time and found everything you needed. We tried to think of stuff we use every day that may be useful to our guests and we have supplied both Rainbow View and our other cabin, Valley Vista, that is just down the road with them. The view is spectacular. Hope to see you again soon.

excellent - better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Pretty much what everyone said are true, they provide little extras that you wouldn't expect that gave us an exceptional experience. Even the bed had very nice soft sheets which i took note of. Thanks Steve and Chris for a great experience - everything was great!

Within 15 minutes of being in this place, I knew it was going to be superb. DELICIOUS WELL WATER !

  • 5 of 5

This is a bit overdue (Sorry !). As the title states, 15 minutes, I knew it was going to be awesome- I just had to email Steve and Chris an hour after arriving letting them know that. When they say you don't need anything but your clothes, and food for meals - they ain't kidding ! This place was FULLY equipped. You don't have to worry about anything ! Immense hospitality ! They had awesome little snacks available as well, and stuff to make smores! Oh, and also, as they mention. Don't bother bringing bottled water - the WELL WATER IS DELICIOUS ! Seriously. This was a perfect getaway for my fiance and I. The hot tub was awesome too. The deck - amazing, beautiful, cozy, beautiful view. This place literally took away all of our worries and stresses in life. And thats exactly what a vacation should do. We most certainly will be back. Last but not least, Chris and Steve really really strive to make you feel comfortable, and they are very detailed with directions getting there, where things are at in the cabin and on the deck. - mission accomplished guys. :)
